Parody of Mistletoe and Wine by Cliff Richard

Post by Drassil » Wed Dec 27, 2017 2:08 pm

Based on Mistletoe and Wine by Cliff Richard (1988). By coincidence, I recall one of his concerts being broadcast not long after the series in question ended. Video, Lyrics

Tim Child is the king of chromakey things
The summer's passed, there's a new beginning
"Enter, stranger", start the show
Roll the die, off we go

Series 3
Gavin Gillespie
Riddle score of three out of three
The bog was quite dire
And tricky to see
They didn't rejoice
When they heard "Ooh nasty"

A year of questing, but not of succeeding
A year of testing, not retrieving
But for watchers this was no disaster
Even with fake tan on our dungeon master

Series 3
Massive toes to flee
Children meeting the Brangwen Shee
There's lots of enquiries
They ask, "Where am I?"
You're all in a room
And 11 will die

"Truth and light"
"Justice bright"

It's a time for jesters, a time for goblins
A time to hear Festus and dodge hobgoblins
Knightmare is love, Knightmare is fear
No time for Christmas, we'll do it next year

Series 3
VIM and ENERGY
Children meeting old Mrs. G
There's caverns of fire
And skulls in the air
A time to rejoice
In the best of Knightmare

Series 3
High difficulty
Three teams made it to Level Three
The moggies shoot fire
The stardust is free
Just make sure you know
All about Avebury

Series 3
Mellisandre's glee
Stood on trapdoors perilously
When Mogdred shows ire
It's "T-O-A-D"
And there's Melly's voice
Telling Ross to hurry

Series 3
Loads of us agree:
The best telly we'll ever see
There's lots to inspire
In its wizardry
So thanks to Tim Child
And to you, ITV

Thank you. I hadn't settled on my festive song parody for this year until I happened to hear it on the radio.
