When Santa Visited The Elf Inn
When Santa visited The Elf Inn.
He was taken quite aback.
The landlord said 'Leave now you're barred
And don't ever come back.'
Santa said 'What is the reason for the ban?'
Came the reply 'Last time you were here
You drank my sherry and ate the mince pies
Then you had the cheek to criticise my beer'
Santa said 'To be fair in my defense
I only did what a ticker should do
And I was really generous
Giving that rank ale a two.
But the landlord became annoyed
And threw Santa out on the street
Where he fell upon his bum
In the wintery rain and sleet.
So Santa went to the Snowman Arms
Where his welcome was cheery and warm
He even received a kiss on the lips
From regular All In Sean.
