It’s the season to be jolly
On a snowy day and we’re free
Horses eating hay for their tea
We’ve bought our Christmas tree and decorated with bright lights
We’ve been good and made our lists for Santa in our handwrites
Hope he comes, we leave him some mince pies on Christmas midnight
Wrapped presents under the tree
Busy with shopping spree
Hope Santa fits in chimney
Carrot for reindeer
Would Santa like beer?
To our health for cheer
This is our Christmas
All so rambunctious*
