Malachi’s First Parody

I’ll try to hide my pride but I simply can’t — Malachi, age 6, just wrote his first song parody. I’d like to share these lyrics with you. Let me point out that I have not tampered with or suggested anything.

He doesn’t go, oh

Up on the housetop boom Boom BOOM
Daddy just fell into our living room.


Well done, lad! The fact that you rolled your old man under the bus is just fine, especially for the sake of comedy.
