T’was the night before Christmas and the moon was out
If we see Santa there’s going to be a big shout
There is a new sleigh now, with bells to ring
He crashed last flight, but only a small ding.
Too many packages to drop at each door
Santa’s old, just can’t do this much more
Reindeer are hitched up already to leave
Taking on the skyway, no traffic to weave.
I never know when Santa will appear
Left the lights on but hard to hear
He’s comes and leaves in such a flash
His reindeer kick up and make a dash.
Everyone sleeps, not aroused to the clatter
I must find a way to deal with this matter
Tied a bell to my dog’s collar
Hearing Santa he’ll jump and holler.
The bell jingled, I sprang to my feet
Didn’t see Santa that I was hoping to greet
Where’s Santa and why did you woof?
My dog looked up and gave a mighty ‘roof”!!!
