Dominic The Christmas Donkey: Greatest Christmas Novelty Songs [VIDEO]

On some lists this is mentioned as one of the worst Christmas novelty songs of all time.  Sorry.  I respectfully disagree. Puts me in a better mood any time I hear it!  So for those who agree, here we go!:

According to Wikipedia, here’s the background of this classic:

Dominick the Donkey is a Christmas song written by Richard Allen, Sam Saltzberg, and Lou Monte, first sung by Monte in 1960.The song describes a donkey who helps Santa Claus bring presents to children in Italy.

The song hit #14 on the Hot 100 list back then, but I guess it didn’t get a lot of radio play because it was “ethnic” in nature, but it still became a cult classic of sorts and continues to this day.

I want to thank the person who put this YouTube video up and transcribed the lyrics so you can practice to sing along at the next Christmas karaoke nite!

What’s your favorite novelty song?  Would love to know!
