Christmas come soon


Losing my marbles
waiting for ages.
Had a long dreary year!
someone open the cages.
Edging towards insanity,
all I need is a party.
Worked hard all along,
want to hear the bells.
I have opened the door
just to make sure.
Now come soon
waiting since June.
I want to be over the moon,
Christmas come soon.

Come and never go,
I know it can't be so.
Crazy what I'm longing for
but the heart knows
nothing of highs and lows.
It acts like a child
wishing for a fairy
to wave her wand,
make the atmosphere glow,
cover everything in snow.
I'm getting ready in the saloon,
in my new top and pantaloon.
It's nearly dark at half past noon,
Christmas come soon.

From the clouds there approaches
a sleigh pulled by reindeers.
Santa is making an entry in the town,
flowing white beard and red gown.
Flashing a smile,
wider than a mile.
Bags of gifts can be seen,
Santa and his elves look keen
to host the best party
ever seen under the moon.
Dancing hand in hand
be it beggar or tycoon
joining in the chorus
singing just one tune,
'Come soon, come soon'
Christmas come soon.
