Original lyrics by David Rakowski:
Octaves roasting on an open fire,
Major sixths nipping at your nose,
Major seconds being sung by a choir,
Chromatic alterations of the scale.

Diatonic scale.
A turkey and some mistletoe
Major sixths make the season bright.
Major seconds with their eyes all aglow
Will drop a perfect fifth tonight.

There's minor sevenths on their way.
They've loaded lots of minor seconds on their sleigh.
And every minor sixth will want to spy
To see the supertonic prolonged over five.

And octave offering this simple phrase
To major sixths one to ninety-two.
Although it's been said many times, many ways,
Meet the Flintstones. To you.

Eighth line the way Tormé sings it:
Will drop diminished fifths. Tonight.

The Music Theory Song (Intervals Roasting). FYI, the notation is in C major, but I transposed the accompaniment track to Bb to better suit my vocal range.
