Holiday song contest - ALL ENTRIES posted here


Apparently there were members who wanted to participate in the contest but didn't have time to do so. Based on that feedback, we decided to extend the deadline. Please see revised rules below:

Rewrite this popular holiday song to be fish/aquatic themed.
(No need to repeat the days as you go like they do traditionally, you can make it all come together at the end.)



On the first day of Fishmas,
my true love gave to me
A partridge in a pear tree.

On the second day of Fishmas,
my true love gave to me
Two turtle doves,

On the third day of Fishmas,
my true love gave to me
Three French hens,

On the fourth day of Fishmas,
my true love gave to me
Four calling birds,

On the fifth day of Fishmas,
my true love gave to me
Five golden rings,

On the sixth day of Fishmas,
my true love gave to me
Six geese a-laying,

On the seventh day of Fishmas,
my true love gave to me
Seven swans a-swimming,

On the eighth day of Fishmas,
my true love gave to me
Eight maids a-milking,

On the ninth day of Fishmas,
my true love gave to me
Nine ladies dancing,

On the tenth day of Fishmas,
my true love gave to me
Ten lords a-leaping,

On the eleventh day of Fishmas,
my true love gave to me
Eleven pipers piping,

On the twelfth day of Fishmas,
my true love gave to me
Twelve drummers drumming....
Eleven pipers piping,
Ten lords a-leaping
Nine ladies dancing
Eight maids a-milking
Seven swans a-swimming
Six geese a-layaing
Five golden rings
Four calling birds
Three French hens
Two turtle doves
And a partridge in a pear tree!!!

Be creative and have fun with it. I think the judges should be able to recognize the song but you don't have to be rigid with it.

But then again, I'm not judging ;)

As long as the entries are kept anonymous to the judges. We don't want people voting for someone just because they're friends. Lets make it fair for everyone.

On the first day of Fishmas,
my true love gave to me
A Betta in a....... *mumble mumbleeeee.*


Um, yep. I might as well stop here. I don't think this will be the winning entry.

Maybe I should try again....

On the second day of Fishmas,
my true love gave to me
Mumble-mumble-mumble....
And a Betta in a *mumble mumbleeeee.*


Nope. Definitely NOT the winning entry.
