Christmas Carol Conundrum Cacophonous Conclusion

Since you endured all 21 Christmas Carol Conundrums, I thought I'd give you number 22 in the original style first established by speakers of real English.  Most of our songs have been dumbed down for the masses, and most people don't even realize that there was a time when language was more precise.  Even our beloved Christmas Carols have been reduced to the point of insulting simplicity.  "Jingle Bells" for example is only the pedestrian version of the original "Tintinabulation of vacillating pendulums in inverted, metallic resonant cups" we used to sing up in the ivory tower.

So, for all of you Courageous Conquerors of Contemporary Conundrums who deserve a refreshing sample of how we used to sing these songs back in the good old days, may I present........
