Global Schoolyard Rhymes UPDATE #7

In this installment of obnoxious schoolyard rhymes from around the world, it seems that Jingle Bells is a popular target for kids everywhere. Here are 4 great ones from New Zealand, Brazil, Spain and The U.S - inspired by and sung to the tune of Jingle Bells (in their native language).

NEW ZEALAND

Jingle bells, jingle bells
Santa Claus is dead.
Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear,
Shot him in the head.

Barbie doll, Barbie doll,
Tried to save his life.
But a GI Joe from Mexico
Stabbed her with a knife

From: The children of New Zealand
(and Janice Ackerly)

BRAZIL

Jingle bells, jingle bells
acabou papel
não faz mal não faz mal
Limpa com jornal

O jornal é caro
Caro pra xuxú
Como eu fazer

Jingle bells, jingle bells

English Translation

Jingle bells, jingle bells
The toilet paper ran out.
No problem, wipe with the newspaper.

What am I going to do to wipe my...
Jingle bells, jingle bells

SPAIN (CATALAN)

Tinc un pèl, tinc un pèl,
tinc un pèl al cul,
jo en tinc dos, jo en tinc dos,
que és un més que tu.

English Translation:

Got a hair, got a hair,
Got a hair on my ass.
I've got two, I've got two,
And that's one more than you.

From: Trevor

AMERICA

Jingle Bells, Batman smells
Robing laid an egg
The Batmobile lost a wheel
And the Joker got away
