The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year

'Tis the most wonderful time of the year,
When kids from two to ninety are full of good cheer!
Christmas Trees have been trimmed and are shining bright!
The kids are behaving so well much to their mothers' delight!

Santa sits on his throne at Penney's hearing little kids' pleas,
Kids promising when he visits he'll find cookies and cheese!
Shopping malls and city streets are aglow with fine decorations!
Smiling Salvation Army folks are ringing bells seeking donations!

The Christmas Parade is passing by with cheering folks 'long its route!
Snuggly wrapped carolers sing timeless carols while strolling about!
Frenzied last minute shoppers laded with gifts rush to and fro -
Argyle socks for Pa, perfume for Ma and a snood for Aunt Flo!

The town square looks like a scene from Currier and Ives!
The shrill siren of a fire truck is heard as Santa arrives!
His hearty Ho! Ho's! echo from the walls of the town hall,
As he wishes MEEERRRYYY CHRISTMAS!  to one and all!

'Round cozy hearths Dads read the story of the Babe's Birth.
Old Grandfather Clock tolls ten and kids are shooed off to their berth,
To sleep with one eye open to glimpse old Santa and his reindeer!
'Tis truly the most wonderful, wonderful time of the year!
