A campy evocation (almost a parody) of country Christmas novelty songs. As the title suggests, its about a guy who thinks his toddler, caught up in a blizzard of wrapping paper and boxes, might have been accidentally sent by mail somewhere.

About the song
The concept came to me five months ago in a dream in which I dreamt I’d written such a track (about a guy mailing his son) that had become a surprise nationwide hit. But I felt sad because my reputation and identity had been forever defined by this one novelty song. I woke up, sang the chorus into my recorder and then developed it later.

The song was composed, performed, arranged, originated and produced by me. I recorded it at my home studio in Berkeley (Calif.) earlier this month. Registered copyright Paul Iorio 2013 (the song is included on my upcoming album “Flashers in Flashcoats”).
Lyrics
I THINK I ACCIDENTALLY MAILED MY SON IN THE CHRISTMAS RUSH
Music and lyrics by PaulIorio
Copyright 2013


Stars on trees
Trees on cars
Twinkle twinkle little son
I wonder where you are

Where is my little one
He was playing with the bubble pack
Thought he was crawlin’ there
In the Frosty wrap

[spoken]
Oh my god, I think I sent my son Priority First Class

I think I accidentally mailed my son in the Christmas rush
Sealed him in a Flat Rate Box
And sent him in the crush
If it fits, it ships, the p.o. likes to gush
I think I accidentally mailed my son in the Christmas rush

Called up the post office
They want a tracking slip
With no return address
It may not even ship

Second attempt at delivery
Will occur some time today
“If they’re not home, your son comes back
And you don’t have to pay”

[spoken]
Then they put me on that new kind of hold
Press one for classical, press two for rock

I think I accidentally mailed my son in the Christmas rush
Sealed him in a Flat Rate Box
The ride ain’t very plush

Holiday season
Gift wrap blizzard
Boxes on the TV
Where it’s “off to see the wizard”

Then I realized
Just where I’d left my boy
There he was near the backyard fence, playin’ with his toys

[spoken]
Big apologies to the post office
Hey, I didn’t mean “you’ll get yours” as a threat
Now let’s be reasonable here!

I thought I’d accidentally mailed my son in the Christmas rush
Sealed him in a Flat Rate Box
And sent him in the crush

Figured he’d get a ride direct to Cedar Brush
I thought I’d accidentally mailed my son in the Christmas rush

Christmas rush
Christmas rush
