I ran a string of lights across my roof they twinkled very nicely,
So I wrapped some trees out in the back, six of them precisely.
I hung a snowflake made of light in each window of my house,
My friends were filled with Yuletide cheer I even lit up my spouse.
The bushes got draped in lights like a wonderland in winter,
Then I ran a long strand around the deck until I got a splinter.
I framed each window of my house with a string of sparkling light,
They certainly bring a cheerful glow to my neighborhood at night.
I have an inflatable manger scene spotlighted in my front yard,
With a sleigh for Santa and his reindeer it looks like a Christmas card.
My mailbox is a candy cane with red lights twisted around,
When opened it plays a song that says Santa is coming to town.
Next to the chimney I’ve hung a sign that says “Santa this way please.”
I’ve got it lit with floodlights that I’ve hung from the tops of the trees.
I’ve rented a surplus searchlight that I’ve rigged with a Santa signal,
It scours the clouds above my house looking for old Kris Cringle.
I’ve lined the drive with lights to direct Santa to my yard,
I borrowed them from the landing strip of the Ohio National Guard.
Now when I turn the lights on at night the neighbors stand and shout,
Because my display is so darned bright it makes the streets lights all go out.
