100 word Challenge for Grownups #23

Below is our prompt...
Now for this week we are really getting into Christmas. I’m not going to be as prescriptive as I might be so don’t grumble! I want to to choose a favourite carol and re-write it with the theme of a Christmas Dinner. You have to tell your readers which carol it is and they have to be able to sing your version back to themselves. That means the right tempo and beat. You may not need 100 words but I’ll give you that many just in case! Generous aren’t I?!!

I chose 'God rest ye merry gentlemen'

No rest for busy womenfolk.

No rest for busy womenfolk,
No let up on this day.
Remember sprout and potato,
parsnips too, what'er they say.
This food will all soon be devoured,
No reason for dismay.

Oh tidings of dinner and joy,
Dinner and joy!
Oh tidings of dinner and joy!
