Christmas is a happy time.

    Our teacher tells us so.

I just can’t wait till school breaks up

    And off back home we’ll go.


I’m sick of being a shepherd boy

    In the Christmas play at school -

And forcing kids to learn their lines

    Is really rather cruel.


Christmas is a happy time.

   It would be without cards.

We’re making them again this year

    And artwork’s rather hard.


I’m tired of singing Christmas songs

    And parties by the score!

I’m tired of Christmas dinners

    And I won’t eat any more.


Christmas is a happy time.

    My brother’s playing up

And Mum has overcooked the sprouts -

    And Dad’s broken a cup.


My Granddad’s always grumbling,

    And Granny’s gone to sleep.

The Christmas paper’s now cleared up

    And lies there in a heap.


Christmas is a happy time

    But New Year soon will come -

And I’ll wash away that Christmas face

   And try to look less glum.
