This collection of original, laugh-out-loud alternative lyrics is ideal for singing-along, from campfire gatherings to science fiction convention "filk circles”. It will delight anyone with a wry sense of humor and a liking for satirical parody. Ms. Leslie, a writer of speculative fantasy and herself a lifelong lover of comic songs - from Tom Lehrer to "Weird Al' Yankovic to British Music Hall - consistently melds witty lines with accurate scansion. Part One comprises thirteen parodies for the Midwinter Season rollicking send-ups of over-played holiday songs ("The Pagan Drummer Person”, "Frosty The Pagan,” "Jolly Old Krampus”). There's a carol for dogs, and one for vegans. Part Two largely relies for its tunes on the traditional and contemporary folk canon of Scotland, Ireland and England, with an occasional nod to Broadway these nineteen very varied send-ups range from Scottish cuisine to paranormal romance, homeland security to "Lord of The Rings", IKEA to Goths, earthquakes to cat lovers. No music to read, just fun lyrics (some a wee bit rude!). Most tunes are well-known within the folk canon; each song entry provides the name and composer (or other source) to which it fits.
