Christmas Panic at the Pole

Christmas Panic at the Pole

With  only 12 days before Christmas,
Santa‘s concerned with the weather report,
the sleigh has a major malfunction,
needs repair and the time’s running short.

All the elves have themselves in a panic,
their shifts running twenty-four seven,
their tired and stressed but are doing their best 
with remaining days numbering 11.

The reindeer are poised and polished,
Santa conducts their inspection with praise,
with the flight plan officially filed,
they’re  all set  to depart in 10 days.

Rudolph is fighting a head cold
But Santa knows he’ll be fine,
Santa rubs him with Vicks, with a hot toddy mix
cause he has to be ready in 9.

Bad news from North Pole repair shop,
some parts for the sleigh might be late
and there’s no time for home delivery tonight
as the countdown continues to 8.

Mrs. Claus and her singing elves,
entertain in the hall till eleven, 
she has to confess as she plays all requests,
she’ll be glad when its over in 7.

Santa’s caught double dipping the eggnog,
with 6 left he has gained one more pound
those cookies and chips have gone this hips
he’ll be lucky to get off the ground

Mrs. Clause coaxes Santa try on his suit
they look at each other with dread,
with 5 days to go, it’s three inches to tight,
she looks for a needle and thread.

Well, tragedy has been averted
the sleigh’s fixed and Rudolph’s alright
with only 4 days before Christmas is here
looks like everyone’s up for the flight!

The Elves throw a disco party
Santa’s soaking his feet instead
with 3 days to go what  he wants most of all
is a good night’s sleep in his bed.

The North Pole workshop got buried 
in a blizzard with 2 days to go,
Santa summoned the elves at 3am
to shovel 12 inches of snow. 

The presents are loaded, the reindeers prance 
Christmas eve is finally here
Ho Ho Ho Santa cries as he flies cross the sky
