Knights of the Pain Table

A Camelot for Sufferers of Chronic Pain

John Denver and the Muppets doth Sing “12 Days of Christmas”

John Denver and Kermit

The minstrel John Denver in the year 1979 did  singeth with our special little friends the Muppets.    Liketh the pure mountain air, John’s voice still touches the heart through time.    Jim Henson, John and their little friends are probably sitting around the fire tonight with much mirth while Miss Piggy searches  for her Christmas presents and John strums his guitar.

As winter doth wake, John reads his poem  “Alfie the Christmas Tree” and then sings The 12 Days of Christmas” with our Kermit, Miss Piggy and the gang.

Alfie the Christmas Tree  can be found on John Denver’s CD “A Christmas Together”.

We thinketh Christmas is sitting with John, Jim, Kermit and the Muppets and singing about peace and love.    We will remember to  sayeth a prayer for the wind and the water and the wood and and those who live there too.

Alfie the Christmas Tree

Did you ever hear the story of the Christmas tree
Who just didn’t want to change the show
He liked living in the woods and playing with squirrels
He liked icicles and snow
He liked wolves and eagles and grizzly bears
And critters and creatures that crawled
Why bugs were some of his very best friends
Spiders and ants and all
Now that’s not to say that he ever looked down
On a vision of twinkled lights
Or on mirrored bubbles and peppermint canes
And a thousand other delights
And he often had dreams of tiny reindeer
And a jolly old man in a sleigh
Full of toys and presents and wonderful things
And a story of Christmas Day
Oh, Alfie believed in Christmas alright
He was full of Christmas cheer
All of each and every day
And all throughout the year
To him it was more than a special time
Much more than a special day
It was more than a special story; it was more than a beautiful story
It was a special kind of way
You see some folks have never heard a jingle bell ring
And they’ve never heard of Santa Claus
They’ve never heard the story of the Son of God
That made Alfie pause
Did that mean that they’d never know of peace on Earth
Or the Brotherhood of Man
Or know how to love, or know how to give
If they can’t no one can
You see, life is a very special kind of thing
Not just for a chosen few
But for each and every living, breathing thing
Not just me and you
So when you’re at Christmas prayers this year
Alfie asked me if I’d ask you
Say a prayer for the wind and the water and the wood
And those who live there too
