Flow Billy BaH Walka Walk

He is silly that Billy...a flow walker ...joy talker
He trots along so sweet some days
but then just turns and bolts away

He is an ever-ready arm embrace
but not so much for the long haul race

He is dashing as Santa and his sleigh
as you watch him keep you...... well at bay

His smile "how it twinkles and his dimples so merry"
lead you to believe it is true love that he carries

Oh the torch! How it glows and your feelings they flow
but as soon as he knows... 
out the window he goes!

You fly to the rooftop to watch him ...drive out of sight
and crushingly learn he is more of a blight
than a heartthrob magnificent  to hold close at night

So Go TO YOUR walking ...OH Billy BAH O
I am tired of talking ...to a big zerO
