Garlands of evergreens hanging on doors.
Umbrellas and parkas dripping on floors.
Itís drizzling and raining, not a snowflake in sight.
How can old Santa come sleighing tonight?

We have a nice snowfall one Christmas in twenty.
Other years in December weíve raindrops aplenty.
I donít know what he drives to alight on my roof.
But it makes much more noise than a small cloven hoof.

I donít dare to peek, for I fear Iíd be caught
And heíd take all the gifts he so cheerfully brought.
Perhaps his elves made a space ship for his flight
To insure that he gets Ďround the world in one night.

His gift list has grown since that long ago day
When his gifts would all fit into one little sleigh.
So he uses Iím sure, all the latest inventions.
The world in one night, his noble intentions.

Just take my advice and hurry to bed,
If expecting a visit from the big guy in red.
Santa seconds the time he is using tonight.
To mess up his schedule, just wouldnít be right.

Merry Christmas to all and to all a Good Night.
