Santas Cause

I’ve gained some weight and I can see my beard is turning white, To get the kid’s presents put under the tree I stay up half the night. In order to read the tags I have to wear my reading glasses, My wife just brought me a tray of cookies that she baked with molasses. Now I can see that I need to work on my list of character flaws, I have to be good because now it seems I’m turning into Santa Claus. There was a time in my young life that I was so cool and slick, But now more often it seems that I’m confused with ol’ St. Nick. I could fight it I suppose and try to pretend that it’s a pack of lies, The more I think about it though; I might like a sleigh that flies.

    Tony, this is another fun one for the season. Have you heard that joke about the four stages of santa claus in life? This reminded me of it.

    Living in the North Pole can be really cool Santa, can I send you my wish list, I will leave you milk and cookies by the chimney in case you drop in, and the old sled in the garage, it doesn't fly, can I trade it in for one of your reindeer maybe dasher or prancer, I'll be waiting, I've been a good girl, lol, you bring out the best in me, vie
