Well, this is for week 8 - a song for the kids.
It is a bit of a bah humbug cynical song though it does have a twist at the end so I hope kids will have fun with it.
Having blown my Xmas budget wide open with Nintendos, Playstations and sports gear, I am reluctantly and bitterly coming to the realisation that my case of acute GAS has gone into sudden remission - there will be no new toys for me for at least a month) :cry:
. . .so pls forgive my cynicism at this time of supposed good cheer :wink:

Santa's Not Coming This Year

Son, I'm sorry to tell you
Santa's not coming this year
Yes, of course you'll get your presents
Mum & dad will get the gear

I'm sorry to have to break this
But he's never visited at all
Santa is just a fairy tale
Invented to cheer us all

Chorus:
The shops are overflowing with presents on their shelves
And every year it seems, the shoppings never done
And Santa Claus just isn't true, nor Rudolph nor the elves
The marketers run Christmas now, for business, not for fun

Yes I know you've seen him
You once sat upon his lap
Its just a man in a costume
Fake beard and silly cap

Don't be sad, nothing will change
Well still have Christmas every year
Well shop until we drop
And laugh and sing and cheer

(Chorus)

Well play the game and all pretend
Just for Christmas day
It's only the myth that's died
The tradition's is here to stay

I'd rather not have told you
But I think its time you knew
Your wife and kids are worried
That you still believe its true.

Happy Noo Year All :twisted:

Hi Montezuma

That's one way to blow the Santa myth wide open.

Really well written and well thought out piece with a great and funny twist at the end.

Good stuff

Bob :wink:

Here is to you as good as you are

I'm as good as you are as bad as I am
