With Christmas here, your ears have likely been pounded with a couple months worth of Christmas music. From O Holy Night to the inane dogs barking Jingle Bells, you've likely heard it all at this point, probably more than once or twice.

We are assured of a few more days of Christmas music, and perhaps a few opportunities to sing these carols ourselves.

As Bengals fans, this gives us the perfect opportunity to celebrate Christmas and our Bengal fandom. And to that end we present you with our list of Bengal-ized Christmas songs. So the next time you hear one of these tunes, sing it proudly with these modified lyrics.

Who Dey Bells (a.k.a. Jingle Bells)

A great, popular song to sing with the whole family - especially during Bengals games. But it can really be sung any time!

Dashing through the field, in a Bengal tiger sleigh

Over defenders we go, smashing all the way;

Eifert with the catch, from Dalton’s spiral tight

What fun it is to cheer and sing a victory tonight

.

Who Dey bells, Who Dey bells, Who Dey all the way

O what fun it is to ride in a playoff run today

Who Dey bells, Who Dey bells, Who Dey all the way

O what fun it is to ride in a playoff run today

.

Green with the big catch, Gio gets the ball

Hill knocks defenders down, and Burfict makes them fall;

Nelson with the pick, Dunlap with the sack

Look out here comes Geno Atkins pushing them all back

.

Who Dey bells, Who Dey bells, Who Dey all the way

O what fun it is to ride in a playoff run today

Who Dey bells, Who Dey bells, Who Dey all the way

O what fun it is to ride in a playoff run today

.

We Wish You a Who Dey Christmas (a.k.a. We Wish You a Merry Christmas)

A timeless classic which can be sung for any occasion

We wish you a Who Dey Christmas

We wish you a Who Dey Christmas

We wish you a Who Dey Christmas

And a Super Bowl Year.

.

Glad tidings we bring to you and your kin;

Glad tidings for Christmas and a Super Bowl Year!

.

We wish you a Who Dey Christmas

We wish you a Who Dey Christmas

We wish you a Who Dey Christmas

And a Super Bowl Year.

.

Big Ben run over by a Dunlap (a.k.a. Grandma got run over by a reindeer)

This is best sung with Steelers fans in the vicinity

Big Ben got run over by a Dunlap.

Walking out on our field Christmas eve.

You can say there's no such thing as Dunlap.

But as for me and grandpa we believe!

.

Big Ben got picked off by Reggie Nelson.

Attempting a pass on our field, can you believe?

He got picked three times by Reggie Nelson.

This much yes is true, I don’t deceive!

.

God rest you merry, Bengals’ fan (a.k.a. God rest you merry, gentlemen)

If you sing this song after Christmas, just remember to update the "eleven" in the lyrics

God rest you merry, Bengals’ fan, let no loss you dismay,

Remember our good Bengals on this and every day;

To the playoffs they are headed Eleven and Three they stand.

O big loud cheers of Who Dey, oh boy,

Who Dey, oh boy,

O big loud cheers of Who Dey, oh boy!

Burfict Bell Rock (a.k.a. Jingle Bell Rock)

A great song when the Bengals are on defense, but not just limited to those occasions.

Burfict bell, Atkins bell, Dunlap bell rock

Your head swings, when they hit you it rings

Show you up, blow you up, it’s bushels of fun

Now the defense has just begun

.

Burfict bell, Atkins bell, Dunlap bell rock

Who Dey chants chime, it’s the Bengals’ time

Sacking and smacking in you there’s a scare

Pick you off in the air.

.

What a bright time, it's the right time

To put your team away

Ring your bell time is a swell time

To get a big stop and make you punt it away

Giddy-up Bengals’ D, pressure that team

Making big stop after stop

Mix and a-mingle stuffed by the Bengals’ D

That's the Burfict bell,

That's the Atkins bell,

That's the Dunlap bell rock.

Have a Merry Christmas, and enjoy singing these Bengals' Christmas classics with all of your friends and family this Christmas season.
