Snow Drifts, pt. 2

One of the laziest posts ever:

Christmas in Hollis

It was December 24th on Hollis Ave in the dark
When I seen a man chilling with his dog in the park
I approached very slowly with my heart full of fear
Looked at his dog, oh my God, an ill reindeer
But then I was illin because the man had a beard
And a bag full of goodies, 12 o'clock had neared
So I turned my head a second and the man had gone
But he left his driver's wallet smack dead on the lawn
I picket the wallet up then I took a pause
Took out the license and it cold said "Santa Claus"
A million dollars in it, cold hundreds of G's
Enough to buy a boat and matching car with ease
But I'd never steal from Santa, cause that ain't right
So I'm going home to mail it back to him that night
But when I got home I bugged, cause under the tree
Was a letter from Santa and all the dough was for me

D.M.C. :
It's Christmas time in Hollis Queens
Mom's cooking chicken and collard greens
Rice and stuffing, macaroni and cheese
And Santa put gifts under Christmas trees
Decorate the house with lights at night
Snow's on the ground, snow white so bright
In the fireplace is the yule log
Beneath the mistle toe as we drink egg nog
The rhymes you hear are the rhymes of Darryl's
But each and every year we bust Christmas carrols

(Christmas melodies)

Run-D.M.C. :
Rhymes so loud and proud you hear it
It's Christmas time and we got the spirit
Jack Frost chillin, the orchas out?
And that's what Christmas is all about
The time is now, the place is here
And the whole wide world is filled with cheer

D.M.C. :
My name's D.M.C. with the mic in my hand
And I'm chilling and coolin just like a snowman
So open your eyes, lend us an ear
We want to say

Run-D.M.C. :
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Special thanks to for these lyrics.


  1. Son.


    Your SLACKING son.

    Is it that Chitown weather?

    Got frost-bitted knuckles?

    Yes, bitted.

    I'm feeling SO pseudo-GULLY son.

    Suburbia done taught me alot, nahmean?

    This post SUCKS.

    Don't you love it when my comments save the day?

    I do :)

  2. but you have to admit, 'christmas in hollis' is the ultimate christmas novelty song, at least behind "you're a mean one, mr. grinch."

    i'm not counting the charlie brown christmas album, because i don't consider that to be a novelty. but run-dmc's is certainly more specific than, say, 'i saw mama kissing santa claus,' ' grandma got ran over by a reindeer,' or the perennial malevolent, 'i saw daddy kissing santa clause.'

    and with that, i'm out.


Be kind. Rewind.
