Track listing[edit]

  1. The Twelve Pains of Christmas (3:36)
    • Parody of "The Twelve Days of Christmas." Sung as a normal Christmas carol, with each verse comedically recited by a participant in a painful or undesirable activity.
  2. The Chimney Song (2:06)
    • Original song, sung by a young child (or impersonator). The song describes the ensuing months after Santa Claus gets stuck in someone's chimney.
  3. We Wish You Weren't Living With Us (0:44)
    • Parody of "We Wish You a Merry Christmas." Sung as a normal Christmas carol. About relatives who overstay their visit, becoming a nuisance to the host.
  4. Wreck the Malls (2:02)
  5. A Visit from St. Nicholson (4:30)
    • Parody of "A Visit from St. Nicholas" by Clement Clark Moore, with actor Jack Nicholson (in a parody of his movie roles portraying disturbed maniacs) appearing instead of St. Nicholas. Spoken-word piece with no music.
  6. O Come All Ye Grateful Dead-Heads (1:23)
  7. I'm Dressin' Up Like Santa (When I Get Out on Parole) (3:06)
  8. The Restroom Door Said, "Gentlemen" (1:33)
    • Parody of "God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen." Sung by an all-male a cappella chorus. The subject has apparently been subjected to a prank in which someone flipped the Mens and Ladies signs to the restroom.
  9. Foreigners (2:07)
  10. Joy to the World (1:22)
    • Hard rock instrumental version of traditional song.
  11. A Message from the King (2:18)
