Sung to the music of Jingle Bells

DNA DNA 32andme (Parody of Jingle Bells)

Dashing through the snow
In a beat up Chevrolet
To UPS I go
Clutching DNA
I hope the lid stays tight
Let’s pray the glass don’t break
I dropped the box off postage-paid
And peeled out for Pete’s sake! ohhhhhhhhhh

DNA DNA, I need answers now
Is my dad my bio dad?
Please tell me when and how

DNA DNA, I can hardly wait
I’ve got pens and I got pads for
Matching up the dates

It’s been six long weeks
The time has finally come
I match ghouls and geeks
Too late to turn and run 🏃‍♀️

Dear 🎅 Santa I was wrong
To think I was alone
They’re filling up my gmail 📦 box
They’re blowing up my ☎️ phone

DNA DNA, Lord what have I done?
Sister Cleo is my aunt
And ☘️ Irish? I have none

DNA DNA, how could this be true?
I’m Scottish, Finnish, Mandarin
And half Sephardic Jew

The journey is so wild
And not for just a few
I’m not an only child
I’m one of 32!

Oh no — I am not sad
Yes, DNA is great!
Guess 32 is not so bad…
It could be 38!!
