The 12 Pains of Christmas | A 2020 Executive Sing-a-Long

The holidays are here and we’re still trying to figure out how we’re going to get it all done. You know, all the productivity stuff we talk about?

So, instead of asking you to work at something – anything – I’ve decided to give you a gift of holiday music to spark your spirit!

The 12 Pains of Christmas
Property of the author and Exkalibur

There’s some pretty stiff competition … a lot from a bunch of fluff balls … animated folks like Elmo, Winnie the Pooh, Shrek, the Muppets, the Chipmunks … so what can go wrong with my brilliant effort at holiday song-writing?

I should get a break because there is a remarkable breakdown of taste and intelligence at Christmastime.

Mature, responsible grown men wear neckties made of holly leaves and drink alcoholic beverages with raw egg yolks and cottage cheese in them. ~ P.J. O’Rourke

I know what you’re thinking … don’t quit your day job. (No chance of that.)

So, feel free to sing along to the tune of the 12 Days of Christmas 2020.

Key of D Sharp, please.
