Santa started Christmas early
As it was a busy time.
He ate up all the sweet mince pies
And drank up all the wine.
He had all the Christmas pudding
And all the Christmas cake.
He would have kept on going
But he couldn’t stay awake.
The cheeseboard was quite empty
By the time he got to lunch.
So he had to just have crackers
As he drank up all the punch.
The turkey and the stuffing
Well they went down a treat.
After all the roasties and the veg
His trousers didn’t meet.
He found the pigs in blankets
Went quite well with the sherry.
He didn’t know what happened
But he seemed to be quite merry.
Day three with just the chocolates
And the biscuits left to go.
He tried to get on with his sleigh
But his movements were quite slow.
Then the mulled wine revived him
So he could finish off.
He kept on going till he knew
There was nothing left to scoff.
He had a rest before departing
So, he could drive the sleigh.
He didn’t want a ticket
That wouldn’t be ok.
Santa’s feeling happy now
The presents are on time.
Everything is as it should be
He knew it would be fine.
