The Halls Were Decked

by Bruce Lansky
(Sing to the tune of “Deck the Halls”)

The halls were decked with toilet paper.
Fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la.
Teacher blamed me for that caper.
Fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la.
Called me names that I can’t mention.
Fa-la-la, la-la-la, la-la-la.
Now we both are in detention.
Fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la.
