I often tell myself little lies.  Like the Chinese takeaway will be fine because I am going to have a fruit smoothie for dinner for the rest of the week.  Who am I kidding?  

But at this time of year I feel like everything that comes out of my mouth is a lie.  

In honour of the little white lies we will be spinning over the festive period, here’s my parody of the Fleetwood Mac classic ‘Little Lies‘…

 

Little Lies fleetwood mac parody

 

Please don’t pick your nose
Try to keep on all your clothes
‘Coz he’s watching you
Just be, just be, just behave

Coz he’s got a magic sleigh
Soon he’ll be on his way
To deliver toys
Tell them, tell them, tell them lies

Tell them lies
Tell them sweet little lies
(Tell them lies, tell them, tell them lies)
Santa’s sleigh can really fly
(Yes it flies, Oh yes it flies)
Tell them lies
Tell them sweet little lies

All the toys are made by elves
This one lives on our shelf
‘Coz he’s watching you
Just be, just be, just behave

You want a Hatchimal?
I’ll have to give Santa a call
Have you been really good?
Tell them, tell them, tell them lies

Tell them lies
Tell them sweet little lies
(Tell them lies, tell them, tell them lies)
Santa’s sleigh can really fly
(Yes it flies, Oh yes it flies)
Tell them lies
Tell them sweet little lies

Santa’s on his way
Lets try to spot his sleigh
That’s him in the sky
Close your, close your, close your eyes

He’ll land on our roof
Shh! Was that Rudolf’s hoof?
Time to go to sleep
Tell them, tell them, tell them lies

Tell them lies
Tell them sweet little lies
(Tell them lies, tell them, tell them lies)
Santa’s sleigh can really fly
(Yes it flies, Oh yes it flies)
Tell them lies
Tell them sweet little lies

  1. So true,what will we do in the New Year. It’ll be Anarchy. I’m a bit scared! Thankyou for hosting,I have joined up for the first time.#Friday Frolics

  2. I really hated the lies about Santa and dreaded the day i was going to get confronted by the “You lied to me for years Mum!” Luckily by the time they get to hear the truth from their classmates and working it out for themselves, they are too embarrassed to admit they sucked it all up in the first place.

  3. Oh this is GENIUS! We have to tell those little lies, it’s what keeps me sane from the summer onwards. I do wonder if it is wrong to threaten my children with the fact that the big FC won’t be visiting if they don’t behave, but then it works so I ain’t going to stop! 🙂 #FridayFrolics

  4. Perfect! It’s all the little lies parents tell their kids about Santa:) It just wouldn’t be Christmas without this lies, right? They are a part of the spirit and the magic:))

  5. Oh this is so good. When my kids were little, I used to drive myself to insanity at Christmas with my own little lies. To the point where I thought: for fuck’s sake, there must be more to life than this! You have just summed it up. Alison x #FridayFrolics

  6. Ha ha ha, brilliant. But it’s important to remember, lies aren’t just for Christmas 😉 x #FridayFrolics
