I bet it will snow this Christmas

Nottingham Castle


I’ve had a bet

That it will be a white Christmas

The bookie just laughed

but he still took my money

I said don’t laugh

There will definitely be snow

On this Christmas day,

But he gave me odds at 5/2

The bookie thinks he’s funny

Now he has my money

And got one over on me,

But he won’t be laughing

Because the weather forecast

Does forecast snow on Christmas day,

The last time it snowed

In Nottingham was 25 years ago

On Christmas day

When it came to holidays

Mama had everything under control,

Baking cookies, wrapping presents

Even decorating the hall.

 

Christmas Eve kept everyone busy

And the house full of holiday cheer.

Papa and Jimmy left at daybreak

On the hunt for the perfect deer.

 

We’d wake up Christmas morning

Feeling the keen sense of surprise,

Excitement in our hearts

The minute we opened our eyes.

 

In our pajamas, hair all a muss,

We stretched and yawned, still half asleep.

Out of bed before Mama and Papa

We managed a sneaky little peek.

 

Catching sunbeams through the open window

Were the branches of a scrawny little tree.

Underneath were handmade toys ’n’ things,

The most thankful sight we ever did see.

Clumsy santa’s nightmare

 

father-christmas-7
 

As Santa prepared for Christmas

Putting all the toys in his sack

As he lifted the toys on his sleigh

It was then that he hurt his back

 

He went to the front of his sleigh

To make sure Rudolph had a shiny nose

It was then one the reindeers

Stood on one of Santa’s toes

 

Santa laughed it off as quite funny

As he hobbled back to his sleigh

Just as he was about to get in

The reindeer rose up and flew away

 

Santa by this time was angry

And took it out on Snowman Pete

Santa pushed Snowman Pete over

 Ending up in a very large heap

 

It was then that Santa realized

As he awoke from his bed that night

For he had experienced a terrible nightmare

Giving Santa a horrible fright

 

So Santa was not so clumsy

At last Santa was on his way

All the toys were delivered

To the children on Christmas Day
