Sing it with me: ‘A two seed and a bye week’

With apologies to Burl Ives and Perry Como, whose recordings helped popularize another version, and some obscure Englishman, who came up with something similar centuries ago:

On the first day of Christmas,

my Broncos gave to me

A two seed and a bye week.


On the second day of Christmas,

my Broncos gave to me

Two new tight ends,

And a two seed and a bye week.


On the third day of Christmas,

my Broncos gave to me

Three sacks from Von,

Two new tight ends,

And a two seed and a bye week.


On the fourth day of Christmas,

my Broncos gave to me

Four INTs from Phillip,

Three sacks from Von,

Two new tight ends,

And a two seed and a bye week.


On the fifth day of Christmas,

my Broncos gave to me

Five Elway rings (two of them Super)

Four INTs from Phillip,

Three sacks from Von,

Two new tight ends,

And a two seed and a bye week.


On the sixth day of Christmas,

my Broncos gave to me

Six Foxes a-thinking

Five Elway rings (two of them Super)

Four INTs from Phillip,

Three sacks from Von,

Two new tight ends,

And a two seed and a bye week.


On the seventh day of Christmas,

my Broncos gave to me

Seven boys a-blitzing

Six Foxes a-thinking

Five Elway rings (two of them Super)

Four INTs from Phillip,

Three sacks from Von,

Two new tight ends,

And a two seed and a bye week.


On the eighth day of Christmas,

my Broncos gave to me

Eight Champs defending

Seven men a-blitzing

Six Foxes a-thinking

Five Elway rings (two of them Super)

Four INTs from Phillip,

Three sacks from Von,

Two new tight ends,

And a two seed and a bye week.


On the ninth day of Christmas,

my Broncos gave to me

Nine passes wobbling

Eight Champs defending

Seven men a-blitzing

Six Foxes a-thinking

Five Elway rings (two of them Super)

Four INTs from Phillip,

Three sacks from Von,

Two new tight ends,

And a two seed and a bye week.


On the 10th day of Christmas,

my Broncos gave to me

Ten Morenos a-leaping

Nine passes wobbling

Eight Champs defending

Seven men a-blitzing

Six Foxes a-thinking

Five Elway rings (two of them Super)

Four INTs from Phillip,

Three sacks from Von,

Two new tight ends,

And a two seed and a bye week.


On the 11th day of Christmas,

my Broncos gave to me

Eleven Patriots pouting

Ten Morenos a-leaping

Nine passes wobbling

Eight Champs defending

Seven men a-blitzing

Six Foxes a-thinking

Five Elway rings (two of them Super)

Four INTs from Phillip,

Three sacks from Von,

Two new tight ends,

And a two seed and a bye week.


And on the 12th day of Christmas,

my true love gave to me

Twelve fans Tebowing

Eleven Patriots pouting

Ten Morenos a-leaping

Nine passes wobbling

Eight Champs defending

Seven men a-blitzing

Six Foxes a-thinking

Five Elway rings (two of them Super)

Four INTs from Phillip,

Three sacks from Von,

Two new tight ends,

And a two seed and a bye week.

Merry Christmas to all. And to all, a good playoff run.
