Sing Books with Emily, the Blog

Posts Tagged ‘Morgan Philip Gleichenhaus

Last year, I had a great time with my kids writing a new version of “Jingle Bells,” called “Jingle ‘Bot” about a robot in space whose polka-dotted ship picks up space junk.  My son made a picture for the song at the time, which I just found in a pile of papers and of course it makes me want to SING!

Here are the lyrics:

JINGLE ‘BOT, NEW WORDS TO AN OLD SONG BY ELEG
https://singbookswithemily.wordpress.com/2011/10/08/jinlge-bot-new-words-by-eleg/

I was sitting ’round the kitchen with the kids and we were goofing off and these words came to mind.  We thought they were funny.  Maybe it would be fun to make a book for this sometime.

JINGLE ‘BOT
Traditional Tune (sing to the tune of “Jingle Bells”)
Words by Emily Leatha Everson Gleichenhaus

Dashing through deep space
In a polka dotted jet,
O’er the galaxy
Delivering pres-ents.
The robot has some gifts
For extra-terrestrials.
The speed of light
She flies tonight
To far away plan-ets.

Oh…

Jingle ‘bot, this robot
Jingles all the way.
Who’s good or bad,
It’s sure to say
On the digital display.

Jingle ‘bot, this robot
Jingles all the day.
She knows who’s nice
And who is not,
She’s Santa’s elf in space.

A day or two ago,
She thought she’d take a ride.
And soon space junk, not snow,
Was drifting by her side!
With her space arm long and lank,
She knew just what to do.
She grabbed the junk and off she flew
To Santa’s recycling bank!

Oh…

Jingle ‘bot, this robot
Jingles all the way.
Who’s good or bad,
It’s sure to say
On the digital display.

Jingle ‘bot, this robot
Jingles all the day.
She knows who’s nice
And who is not,
She’s Santa’s elf in space.

Now that space is clean
Go out and have some fun.
Hop in your space machine
And sing this robot song!
Just try and take the lead
Of our robot friend’s good deed,
Let’s keep space clear
For Santa’s deer [Alt.: “For Santa to Steer”]
To fly on Christmas Eve [Alt.: “His sleigh on Christmas Eve”]

Oh…

Jingle ‘bot, this robot
Jingles all the way.
Who’s good or bad,
It’s sure to say
On the digital display.

Jingle ‘bot, this robot
Jingles all the day.
She knows who’s nice
And who is not,
She’s Santa’s elf in space.

ALT 3rd Verse:
Now that space is clean
Go it while you’re young.
Hop in your space machine
And sing this robot song!
Be good and you’ll do great,
And go to bed at eight,
So Santa’s elves who stay up late
Can make more toys and celebrate!
