IF YOU PULL A LONG FACE - Part V

IF YOU PULL A LONG FACE - Part V

IF you pull a long face
Especially on Christmas Day
You might put out-of-place
Your face on every other day

If you keep pulling a long face
No matter what anyone might say
Some faces might wear a grimace
By contracting a long face each day

Yet if you must pull a long face
Just when darkness dims day by day
Winter Solstice might lift the burka lace
To show more of wanton autumn play

Now if you go on pulling a long face
On the Gran Via while Reyes Magos lead the way
By comets and shooting cars in criss-crossing race
Pontius Pilatus Police could you in gulgülta dismay

So if you still must pull a long face
On holy church-going psalm-rhyming day
Make sure you confess all dirty-linen disgrace
" Eli Eli lama : Please don't lead me astray ! "
