I'm not exactly sure why I'm doing this, because it just encourages him. Personally, this is one of my least favorite Christmas songs but I ran across this clip this morning and feel compelled to share. The KingofHearts saw this Claymation Christmas Special with Special Guest Stars: THE CALIFORNIA RAISINS! on TV when he was a child. Apparently it made an impression on his fifteen-year-old-self because every Christmas for the decade and a half we've known each other, he has made a point of describing this song to me and/or anyone else who will listen, complete with a dramatic reenactment for anyone who might not have been lucky enough to see it themselves or remember in such vivid detail.

"You see, the kings are all basses and they sing the first part really straight and low, 'weee three keeengs of Oooo-ree-ent aaaaaare...' and then the jazzy camels, start in with 'star of wonder, star of light, a-doo-bee-doo, star with royal beauty bright, a-doo-bee-doo..."

I would just like to point out that there's not a single "doo-bee-doo" in this entire clip.
