"Good King Wenceslas" is a song sung by Buford and Baljeet in the Phineas and Ferb Holiday Favorites album. Buford changes the lyrics and gets into an argument with Baljeet. When Baljeet questions Buford's knowledge of the song, Buford reveals that he knows much about it and changed the lyrics because he likes his version better as it was about him.
Baljeet: Good King Wenceslas looked out
On the feast of Stephen...
Buford: Sorry I'm late. I was busy doin' some rewrites.
Buford: I've highlighted your parts. Now sing along.
Buford: Santa Claus and all his elves
Are making gifts for Buford
Baljeet: I don't think that's how it goes
Buford: Nobody's askin' you, nerd
Baljeet: Buford! You're completely disrespecting this classic song. You're ignoring the historical context. King Wenceslas was a great man. You have no idea what this song is about!
Buford: I know all about this song.
Buford: The words were by an English guy
The music, Scandinavian
Wenceslas was five-foot-six
He kept his face unshaven
Though just a duke throughout his life
He always ruled so justly
His kingly title was conferred
Upon him posthumously
Baljeet: Well, I stand corrected. You seem to have a lot of information. But if you know so much about it, why do you not sing the original song?
Buford: I like my version better. It's about me!
Buford: Buford should get lots of gifts
Every Christmas season
When I see presents just for me
It always is so pleasin'
That is why I changed the words
To make the song more edgy
If you don't like the way I sing
You'll get a Christmas wedgie
Baljeet: Oh, it's lovely. You're a veritable Oscar Hammerstein the Second, or uh...oh, well, at least it's over!
