That Lovely Man In Red
I'm the man who comes from the ice and snow
Where the stars do shine and the moon does glow
I'm the man who flies with his reindeer pulling a sleigh
Spreading good cheer, good will and happiness on his way
I'm the man with the beard of white and the suit of red
Climbing down your chimney when you're fast asleep and in your bed.
Tiptoeing across the floor shhhhhhhhhhhh not a sound
In stockings and under Christmas trees presents will be found
My belly gets bigger and my belt gets tight
More mince pies to my delight before I end my rounds tonight.
I'm the man who comes with gifts but once a year
With a great big sleigh full of toys and his team of flying reindeer
Whether it be through storm, hail, ice or snow
Where the air is cold and the North wind doth blow.
Guided by my love of children the path will grow
Lay very still and quiet, close your eyes and before you know.
A Very Merry Christmas HO HO HO.
