A Connected Genealogist's Christmas Song

The other day in a post by David Pogue I found this seasonal song. I have replaced a couple of phrases to make the song appropriate to family historians like me who enjoy searching the internet for family connections.

(To the tune of “Walkin’ in a Winter Wonderland”)
Doorbell rings, I’m not listenin’ ;
From my mouth, drool is glistenin’
There’s beard on my cheek,
Same clothes for a week,
I’m happily addicted to the Web.
All night long, I keep clicking,
Unaware time is ticking;
I’m happy — although
My boss let me go,
I’m happily addicted to the Web.
Friends come by, they shake me, sayin’ “Yo, man!
You wouldn't be moved by a bomb?”
With a listless shrug, I mutter, “No, man —
I’ve just discovered Ancestr!”
I don’t phone, don’t send faxes;
Don’t go out, don’t pay taxes.
Who cares if someday
They haul me away?
I’m happily addicted to the Web.
Happily addicted to the Web.
Happily addicted to the Web!
Happy high-tech hollydays, everyone!
