Kangaroos look funny in horns and underoos

Kangaroos look funny in horns and underoos Nothing like the holidays down under… So many sweets to taste and plunder… Mistletoe hung over head… Sweet dreams in our slumbering bed… The jolly man shimmying down The hot family hearths Not making a sound making his rounds Asbestos underwear protecting his parts The sweaty old boy in red Cursing the heat of points this far south While blimey citizens are snug in bed Explicatives flowing from his mouth Merry Christmas to all those down under And happy New Year a day bloody sooner Having no snow is a god awful blunder The whole island should be sat in a corner! Rlm ‘10

Very interesting one, and you can see that you long for snow. This would have been great at Xmas time!! I enjoyed the comic relief!
