1) On the first day of fish-mas my true love gave to me a clowm fish in an anemone...

This game is pretty self explaitory, just continue on with the next day and the next, etc.

When we're done, might those of us who have webcams record ourselves singing our line and then string it all together in a youtube video?

For some reason, I keep tripping over the "in an anemone" part of the song.

*right off the top of my head and you know i love you bunches Jesse*

Jesse the red tail merman, had a very shiny fluke, and if you ever saw him, you would even say it glows, all of the other mermen use to laugh and call him names, they never let poor Jesse join in any merman games, then one wavy christmas eve, santa came to say "Jesse with your tail so bright wont you guide my boat tonight?". Oh how the merman loved him as they shouted out with glee, Jesse the red tailed merman youll go down in history!! ;)

And Now i want to see jesse wearing a red tail with a santa hat :) He could be our "Santa Mer" that would be awesome!!

*have a holly jolly fishmas
*Jingle tails, Jingle tails, jingle all the way, (look what you started)

O Coral Reef! O Coral Reef!
Thy tides are ever changing;
O Coral Reef! O Coral Reef!
Thy happy fish are glimmering;
Not only stunning at dawn's first light,
But also when 'tis dark at night.
O Coral Reef! O Coral Reef!
Thy tides are ever changing!

I'm kinda surprised Malinghi and some of the other regulars haven't come up with a line yet. I'm also surprised it's taking this long to finish the song. With only 12 lines, there's not room for all that many people.

Also, last night at the local bar's GLBT night (every tuesday) christmas party, they had as come up with dirty lyrics for the twelve days of christmas... it was fun... I did "Nine go-go boys dancing" (though my line was probably one of the cleanest in the song...).

As far as other songs go...

"I'm dreaming of a wet Christmas,
Just like the ones I used to know.
Where the corals glisten
And merfolk listen
To hear sea shells in the flow
I'm dreaming of a wet Christmas,
With every phosphorescent pet
May your days be Mer-ry and un-net
And may all your Christmasses be wet"

BTW love the "o'coral reef" :)

We still need two more lines for the Twelve Days of Fish-mas

Here's another one, to the tune of "Chestnuts roasting on an open fire/the Christmas Song"

"Sea shrimp roasting on an open fire,
Cleaner wrasses nipping at your nose,
Siren carols being sung by a choir
And merfolks dressed for riding ice floes.

Everybody knows a lobster and some salmon roe
Help to make the ocean bright
Lanternfish with their eyes all aglow
And sharks find it hard to sleep tonight
(or any night)

They know Neptune's on his way
He's loaded lots of jewels and sunken treasure in his balangay
And every mermaid's child is going to spy
To see if dolphins really know how to fly.

And so, I'm offering this marine phrase
To fish from one to ninety-two
Although it's not said many times, many ways
A very Merry Fishmas to you"

What do you think? The balangay was the only water vessel I could find that ended in "-ay"
