Dear father made Christmas a real treat
He cracked the walnuts with his feet
Hi Xmas crackers had real dynamite
His eyebrows were a very weird sight.
He got a gift for the cat each year.
Until the dog said that’s not fair.
So he said they should join with a human choir
Singing carols by the read coal fire.
The cat could waul in any key.
She could screech and moan so she got some tea
The dog could bark but could not speak
Otherwise he would have been a freak.
In the kitchen mother cooked the goose.
With all the family we could have scoffed a moose.
Is the plural of moose meese?
I have no dictionary what a beast
The Christmas pudding with a great delight
The silver sixpence always started a fight.
We had bird’s custard never cream
We had no fridge so it would have turned green.
The birds were so angry that they told the queen.
Ever since then she’s never been seen
We listened to the carols on the wireless set.
Cuddling the cat we called our pet
Dear father said we must go to bed
We always disobeyed him whatever he did.was such fun
He was such fun though very odd
When I was still tiny I thought that he was God.
