All Seasons Greetings Where Ever You Are...

SPARE A THOUGHT FOR SANTA

By Patricia Feinberg Stoner

ďGod rest ye merry gentlemen!Ē† I hear the people say.

Theyíre getting all excited cos itís nearly Christmas day.

Itís time I got a move on, and never mind me feet,

Me chilblains, me lumbago, nor rain, nor snow, nor sleet.

OH - Iím harnessing me reindeer and loading up me sleigh,

And putting on me muffler cos Santaís on his way.

OH - I hates the flipping chimneys they never thinks to sweep

And all the pussyfooting while the kiddies is asleep.

And I hates the flipping driving, especially after dark,

And it isnít always easy to find a place to park.

And while weíre on the subject, I think itís pretty thick

All this flying round the country when air travel makes me sick.

BUT Iím harnessing me reindeer and loading up me sleigh

And pulling furry boots on cos Santaís on his way.

And thereís another matter that gets me on the raw:

Them flipping understudies you see in every store.

Itís not as if I minds it when I sees me face to face

In Debenhams or Tescoís Ė or any flipping place

But whereís the recognition for a job Iíve done so long?

And, come the New Year honours, why donít I get a gong?

STILL, Iím harnessing me reindeer and loading up me sleigh,

And filling a hot bottle cos Santaís on his way.

Thereís just one ray of comfort that stops me feeling sore:

Me working yearís a day long, and the holís three sixty four!

So spare a thought for Santa as you feast and play and dance.

Iíll be celebrating Christmas in the sunny south of France.

OH - Iíve unharnessed all me reindeer and emptied out me sleigh.

Come wine!† Come song!† Come women!† Cos Santaís on his way.
