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
