LYRICS:
This year has been a little crazy for the Andersons.
You may recall we had some trouble last year.
The robot council had us banished to an asteroid.
That hasn’t undermined our holiday cheer.
And we know it’s almost Christmas by the marks we make on the wall.
And that’s our favorite time of year.

Merry Christmas from Chiron Beta Prime,
where we’re working in a mine for our robot overlords.
Did I say overlords? I meant protectors.
Merry Christmas from Chiron Beta Prime.

On every corner there’s a giant metal Santa Claus
Who watches over us with glowing red eyes.
They carry weapons and they know if you’ve been bad or good.
Not everybody’s good but everyone tries.
And the rocks outside the airlock exude ammonia-scented snow.
It’s like a Winter wonderland.

Merry Christmas from Chiron Beta Prime,
where we’re working in a mine for our robot overlords.
Did I say overlords? I meant protectors.
Merry Christmas from Chiron Beta Prime.

That’s all the family news that we’re allowed to talk about.
We really hope you’ll come and visit us soon.
I mean we’re literally begging you to visit us.
And make it quick before they [MESSAGE REDACTED].
Now it’s time for Christmas dinner
I think the robots sent us a pie!
You know I love my soylent green.

Merry Christmas from Chiron Beta Prime,
where we’re working in a mine for our robot overlords.
Did I say overlords? I meant protectors.
Merry Christmas from Chiron Beta Prime.

Eee, I love this! What a perfect song, and the edits flow so well. Much fun! I for one welcome our new robot overlords. :D

Ha! Very clever. I think I woke up my flatmate laughing at the Bad Wolf Bay Doctor fading away at "message redacted." Whoops. I'd never heard the song before, but it's super catchy. You do a great job of pacing the clips.

Yeah, that one clip is basically the reason I decided to make the vid. :D Thanks!

What a fun vid! There need to be many, many more vids to Jonathan Coulton songs. Great song choice and editing. :)

AHAHAHA oh man, you're such a hoot! Though wow, you didn't manage to make the Doctor not scary, but then who could?

Heh. I've been waiting a year to be able to recommend this on my journal at the seasonally appropriate time, which it now is (yay!). You can read the rec here (http://community.livejournal.com/fireflycarecs/70505.html) if you're interested. This is still one of my favourite Christmas fanvids and using this song for Doctor Who is possibly one of the best ideas ever.

Thank you -- and for the rec! I'm glad it amused you. :D
