Shingles Bells Meets Cathy the Red Head Mommy


Today is Day 11 of the countdown of the 12 Days of Christmas. I present another one of your most beloved holiday songs and recreate it as a parody that is probably crass, dirty, disgusting, offensive, or politically incorrect.

This time last year I was recovering from a horrible case of shingles, and I wrote a little ditty about my pain and disfigurement. So… for the 11th Day of Christmas I bring you:

Shingle Bells Meets Cathy, the Red Head Mommy (sung to the tune “Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer.”)

Cathy, the red head mommy

Had a very harsh disease

And if you ever saw her

You would want to laugh and tease


Shingles – they covered her face

Set her head and scalp aflame

She couldn’t put on makeup

Like all them other classy dames


She was groggy from the meds

Her roots had turned to grey

Cathy with her hair so white

Got AARP’s invite


Now with the family photos

Taken throughout Christmas eve

Cathy, the red head mommy:

I’m burning every shot of me!!!

  1. You gave me a scare. I thought the shingles was back. Am very relieved that it is just a re-posting. Your loving mother, me
