2018 Video Season's Greetings From Elk Grove News

December 23, 2018 |  

We hope this holiday season finds all 11 EGN readers in good spirits and health. No matter the time of year your holiday season falls, we always hope you and your family have a joyous occasion.

This year our annual video uses brand new Christmas music from rock, rockabilly, and rhythm and blues musician JD McPherson. The song, Hey Skinny Santa, comes from his just-released Christmas-themed album, SOCKS, which includes other fun tracks like Ugly Sweater Blues

Along with our video, there are two other different Christmas videos posted below. They included Boston-based Celtic punk band, Dropkick Murphy's and the hilarious The Seasons's Upon Us.

Another video that was released in the last few weeks is a blatant product placement scheme, but it is funny. All I Really Want For Christmas features Kool-Aid man and hip-hop artist, Lil Jon. This video is great even for those who don't like or understand Hip Hop.....Oh Yeah! 

Hey Skinny Santa lyrics

[Chorus 1]
Hey, Mister Santa
How's it lookin'?
That thirty-two waistline
You better get cookin'
We need a big Santa
It's almost Christmas time

[Verse 1]
First stop, we gotta get to Chicago
The secret to the pizza there is in the dough
Italian beef with giardiniera hot and sweet
Pop a Polish sausage on Maxwell Street
Windy City poppin' corn with caramel and cheese
Adds a couple notches to his belt with ease

[Verse 2]
We gotta get some gumbo in N-O-L-A
Santa needs a pot of crawfish étouffée
Andouille and jambalaya, Santa don't stop
A fried oyster po'boy and a nice Lagniappe
Fill him up with beignets and a box of pralines
We'll get his red britches bustin' at the seams

[Chorus 2]
Hey, Mister Santa
How's it lookin'?
That forty-two waistline
You better get cookin'
We need a big Santa
It's almost Christmas time
