I went to the shopping mall today.
There he was standing in my way,
A bearded fat man in a red suit.
He seemed to be a jolly old coot.
I left and went to another store.
He was there when I walked in the door.
That same bearded fat man did I see,
How did he get there ahead of me?
Santa seemed to follow me around,
As I made my way through the town.
He was every where I had to go,
His sleigh really gets around in the snow.
Then I went home and locked my doors.
Since I just couldn't take it anymore.
I burned a log from the old oak tree,
So he couldn't come down my chimney.
I know time is on my side, you see,
After Christmas Eve gone he'll surely be,
Not to return here for another year,
To again follow me spreading his cheer.
