Superbowl Carols

O holy night, the screens are brightly shining;
It is the night of the Superbowl game!
Long lay the fans anticipating, pining;
Till it appeared, and our teams we now acclaim!
A thrill of hope, our bookie now rejoices,
The tables groan with pizza, wings and beer.
Fall on your knees, O hear the half-time voices!
Football divine! O hear the stadium cheer!
Football, Football! O Superbowl, game divine!

Good sportsmen now rejoice
With heart and soul and voice!
Give ye heed to what we say
News! News!
Superbowl is on today!
Busch and Block before it bow;
Apple, Coke--come see them now--
Commercials deck this golden cow.
Superbowl today!
Superbowl today!

Here we come a-chugging
Before the TV Screen!
Here we come a-swigging--
our Superbowl routine.
Couch and cash come to you
And to you an ice cold Bud too,
Goodall/NBC/CBS/ABC  bless you, and send you
A winning team this year,
/NBC/CBS/ABC send you a winning team this year

Come thou long expected Bowl Game
Come and hear thy people cheer
As they down their chips and pizza
Place their bets and drink their beer.

Our land's strength and consolation,
Hope of Madison Avenue!
Dear desire of our whole nation
Joy to every fan that's true.

By thine yardage and thy touchdowns
Rule in all our hearts alone
Streaming online, watching, tweeting,
'Til we reach the Great End Zone!
