Default The 12 Days of Christmas!

Here is the 12 days of Charger Xmas!
We rented a Limo and took our kids around to look at Xmas lights and came up with this little rendition of the song... Music and video to follow at some point, maybe..

But this was totally off the cuff. And it may not all match to perfect, but my 9 year old daughter and I had fun with it............

So you all have fun with it!

Sing the melody to make it fit!!


On the first day of Xmas the Chargers gave to me.
A Charger Victory!
On the second day of Xmas the Chargers gave to me.
A two point conversion....
On the third day of Xmas the Chargers gave to me.
A three point field goal......
On the fourth day of Xmas the Chargers gave to me.
A fourth down conversion......
On the 5th day of Xmas the Chargers gave to me.
A five yard penalty ....on the other team!
On the 6th day of Xmas the Chargers gave to me.
A sixty yard TD!
On the seventh day of Xmas the Chargers gave to me.
Seven refs a calling.
On the 8th day of Xmas the Chargers gave to me.
8 season tickets
On the 9th day of Xmas the Chargers gave to me.
9 division titles!
On the 10th day of Xmas the Chargers gave to me.
10 yard pass for a first down.
On the 11th day of Xmas the Chargers gave to me.
11 Chargers Charging!
On the 12th day of Xmas the Chargers gave to me.
The 12th Man a cheering!


Well, we had fun with it! And my 9 year old came up with some good lines!

So here is to a great season and looking forward to the playoffs!

Change it, make it yours, have fun with it like we did...... And any wrong info in our lyrics is pure mishap and results of having fun while out enjoying the season!


GO BOLTS!!!

the only thing id change is " A sixty yard TD" to something about a pick six.
but i cant think of a way to make it fit without sounding awkward.
maybe someone else can figure it out for me haha

maybe something along the lines of " a pick for six"?

Man, I was all excited thinking you were going back to my youth. The way I remember it, the song went:

On the first day of Christmas Gene Klein gave to me a Coryell Superbowl team

On the second day of Christmas Gene Klein gave to me Benirschke kicking on a Coryell Superbowl team

On the third day of Christmas Gene Klein gave to me Dan Fouts a passin, Benirschke kicking on a Coryell Superbowl team...

On the fourth day of Christmas Gene Klein gave to me, Chuck Muncie carrying, Dan Fouts a passin, Benirschke kicking on a Coryell Superbowl team...

And so forth.

I remember singing all the words as a kid but I don't remember Genie Claus coming through with the promise.

Damn it it's now 2009 and this kid is still waiting!

LET'S GO BOLTS! THIS IS OUR YEAR!!!!

I think devising songs for your youngsters is about the best educational activity I can imagine. I devised a little ditty called "The Agriculture Song" to educate my son about various fruits and vegetables grown in different parts of California. Naturally, the first stanza refers to, "Oh, they grow lots of avocados in Northern San Diego County," and how they gin lots of cotton 'round Shafter in Kern County, grow lots of almonds in Stockton and Manteca, etc.
Of course, the special merit of your song is that it refers to both Christmas and the Chargers. Anyone up for a quick alteration of "God Rest Ye, Merry Gentlemen"? "God Rest Ye, Merry Chargers Fans," perhaps?
Taking my own cue, here is the 1st stanza of
"God Rest Ye, Merry Chargers Fans":

God rest ye, merry Chargers fans, let nothing you dismay!
For they win Division titles,
on or before Christmas Day!
To save us all from Raiders power,
and Broncos and Chiefs too!
Oh, tidings of comfort and joy, comfort and joy!
Oh, tidings of comfort and joy!

"Fear not," said the Rivers then,
the ball is ours at last!
And quickly drive the field, and go so very fast!
To score the winning points now,
While Denver has a cow!
Oh, tidings of comfort and joy, comfort and joy!
Oh, tidings of comfort and joy!

(Second verse not as good as the 1st; got carried away).
