By Giselle Roeder, – Melody – ‘Twinkle, twinkle little star…’
“What beats Christmas in the snow?
Jingle bells and forty below?
Boots and parkas, scarfs and mittens,
Cozy homes and cuddly kittens.
Sitting ‘round the fire place,
Happiness for every race?”
Second group sings the answer:
“A beach snow white and sun aglow,
turquoise waters, people slow…
Suntan lotion, bathing suit –
A big white ship and lots of food:
Tell me, is that not a scheme
Against your ice cold Christmas dream?”
Both groups sing together:
“But you miss your friends at home,
I see you run to ev’ry phone.
You think ‘Christmas’ – and go shopping –
Drown your thoughts while barstool hopping.
And in all the glittering light
YOU DREAM OF A CHRISTMAS – WHITE!”
MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL!
