The Santa Special
Over snow capped mountains and deep valley's below,
circling cities and villages where lights twinkle and glow
Donner and Blitzen lead Santa's reindeer team,
pulling his sleigh as sleeping children dream.
They travel so fast across a star studded sky
they'll be at your house in the twinkling of an eye.
Dancer and Prancer will dance on your roof,
the sound of their hooves on the tiles is your proof.
Comet and Cupid are so gentle and kind
they take care of Santa and make sure he's not left behind.
Because Dasher and Vixen are an impatient pair,
they would leave Santa in his old rocking chair,
or halfway up your chimney after delivering the toys;
these two mischievous reindeer can be such naughty boys.
Santa brings presents for all, young and old,
On Christmas night, gifts from the heart more precious than gold.
If you would like to leave Santa a gift,
Milk and a chocolate chip cookie give his spirit a lift.
The reindeer like carrots, except for our Prancer,
he prefers turnips, and he shares them with Dancer.
So on Christmas Eve when you go to bed
shut your eyes tight and rest your sleepy head,
Then in the morning rise with the sun,
It's time to play with new toys and have lots of fun.
