A Christmas melody — Point-style


With all due apologies to ... well, every individual with an ounce of self-respect, here’s our annual foray into adding a more personal touch to some time-honored classics.

Deck the Lots

Deck the lots with as many units as you can,
Fa la la la la, la la la la.
‘Tis the season to ignore land plans,
Fa la la la la, la la la la.

Don we now our cash apparel,
Fa la la, la la la, la la la.
Here’s the county council carol,
Fa la la la la, la la la la.

See the pristine land before us,
Fa la la la la, la la la la.
Fill it up and join our chorus,
Fa la la la la, la la la la.

Follow us in merry measure,
Fa la la la la, la la la la.
While we tell of transfer-tax treasure,
Fa la la la la, la la la la.

Fast away, the open land passes,
Fa la la la la, la la la la.
Hail six an acre, lads and lasses,
Fa la la la la, la la la la.

Sing we joyous, all together,
Fa la la la la, la la la la.
All we can’t tax is the weather,
Fa la la la la, la la la la.

Most Wonderful Time of the Year

It’s the most wonderful time of the year.
With store shoppers hoarding,
and post offices sorting,
we all need a beer!
It’s the most wonderful time of the year.
There’ll be parties for hosting,
drinks will be toasting and storms wiping out sand.
There’ll be scary Point stories
and tales of the glories
of Christmases and steel drum bands.

It’s the most wonderful time of the year.
There’ll be some school district praying,
and reporters obeying,
when their editor’s near.
It’s the most wonderful time of the year.

Leviathan the Red ...

You know Bertram and Starkey
and Saxton and Denny,
Tricia and Carolyn
and Monica counts our pennies.
But do you recall
the most annoying Pointer of all?

Leviathan the red-eyed raccoon
had a very scary face,
and if you ever saw it
you would grab a can of Mace.
All of the other Pointers
used to scream and run away,
they never let Leviathan
turn them into his next prey.

Then one foggy Christmas Eve
Mark Hardt came to say,
Leviathan with your eyes so bright
won’t you leave my Dumpster tonight?
Then all the Pointers loved Mark
and they shouted with no stress,
Leviathan the red-eyed racoon
you’re a filthy ... but we must digress!

Merry Christmas and happy holidays to all our readers, advertisers and supporters. Yes, we could have said as much without the ridiculous Christmas carols but, hey, we wouldn’t be the Coastal Point without a little absurdity, right?
