Santa Is A Yorkshire Man

To put an end to the myth that Santa lives in Lapland

Santa is a Yorkshire man everybody knows that
People just say he's from Lapland, cos he’s round and fat.
Well Yorkshire men can be the same they are not all dud
All year on the beer and whiskey, washed down with Yorkshire pud.

Santa is a Yorkshire man everybody in Yorkshire knows that
You say the Lapland Santa, glows warm and are red, and fat.
Well Yorkshire Santa’s have glowing bits, but they keep them out of sight
Except on Christmas Eve when their pants have got too tight.

Santa is a Yorkshire man so stop making such a fuss
A Santa who know what’s what, so you can call on us
If your chimney is too tight, Yorkshire Santa will let you know
He’ll leave your present’s elsewhere, and you will have to go.
To collect you gifts is your own fault if your chimney is too small
Don’t expect him to get up there, he doesn’t want to fall.

A spade is a spade wherever you go Santa will tell you that
If you want to get your presents early, try Ilkley moor barh t at.
They meet there on Christmas Eve to swap gifts and stories too
That’s why they all have glowing bits, I bet you would have too.
He doesn’t have time to mess about, you people should know that
Santa is a Yorkshire man, there’s no more to say that’s that.


Yorkshire folk are know for being down to earth and saying what they see, ie a spade is a spade and not an earth moving device.
 Ilky Moor Bar tat a famous Yorkshire Folk song where lovers  meet  and she chides him for not wearing a hat. The winds of the moor causing death and he will be eaten by worms and so on (google it)

    This is a beautiful Christmas poem about Santa who, contrary to common belief does not hail from Lapland, but from Yorkshire. Learning does not end. Thank you. There’s no more to say that’s that!
