THE CHRISTMAS FAIRY THAT CRIED
Smiling faces beaming exited and filled with glee
That time of the year has come to put up the Christmas tree
Where has she gone oh where can she be the little golden fairy
The one I'm looking for the one I just can't see.
Every thing's out of the Christmas box where is the fairy with the golden locks
Hush what's that noise coming from under the lid top
Weeping and crying and just can not stop
Tears rolling down those pretty pink cheeks swallowing hard and trying to speak
I pick her up stand her on the palm of my hand
She looks up at me and shouts it's all your fault you silly man
Oh silly fool you have gone and broken the fairies rule
With your blundering ways you snapped my golden wand in two.
Searching every cupboard opening every door
Ah now I remember it's over there in that draw
The stuff that can fix anything and make it brand new
That wonderful stuff called super glue.
Bonds in seconds that's what the back of the bottle says
I have held these two pieces together for ever and a day
I'm getting bored held it way to long what a to do
The only thing that's stuck is my fingers stupid super glue.
She stands at the top of the tree in pride of place
Looking down a contented smile beaming out from her face
Where all around are toys, baubles, sugar candy cane, bells and twinkling lights
Making sparkling eyes and joyful smiles with pure yuletide delight.
All was not lost it was not to late this clumsy fool fixed it with sticky tape.
