Twas moments before Christmas,
And all through the house,
Not a creature was stirring,
Except for the hound.
Sleep doesn’t come,
The drugs won’t kick in,
Those minutes they pass,
They’re slow, oh the pain!
Then what with my wondering eyes do I see?
A Christmas movie to entertain me.
Bing Crosby, Danny Kaye, a classic to watch,
White Christmas is playing, really top notch.
Oh the weather outside is mildly so-so,
Is it too much, to ask for some snow?
A white Christmas morning filled with magic,
It makes it so special, wonderful, fantastic.
It’s been far too long since I saw this flick,
I settle right down and wait for St. Nick,
I wish you a joyous and Merry Christmas,
Full of happiness, hugs and kisses.
