Andy Williams in My Heart

Every December, I spend the entire month waiting for Andy Williams' song, Happy Holiday/The Holiday Season, to come on the radio. It's a terrible song. The worst. holiday. song. ever. But I'm hooked. I can't stop singing it...

Here are some of the lyrics:

It's the holiday season
With the whoop-de-do and hickory dock
And don't forget to hang up your sock
Cause just exactly at 12 o'clock
He'll be coming down the chimney
Coming down the chimney
Coming down the chimney, down!

In doing a search for the lyrics, I cam across this commentary. I'm glad I'm not alone in my feelings of this song.

I am with you on that one. There are a few Christmas songs that I have a love/hate relationship with. I guess since we only experience them once a year the cheesy part is ok. --His sweater is a bit much though. :)

I'll bet ten to one that whoever wrote that was drunk at the time.
Hickory dock? UGH. :)
