CHRISTMAS TREE TIME!

CHRISTMAS TREE TIME!

In our Community Room.

Women prepare to groom…

A tree with laughter

And joy thereafter,

The task that guys don’t assume!

(Unless the girls do it!)

JOHNSBURG RACES

JOHNSBURG RACES

(Same tune as “Camptown Races”–different words!)

 

His dear wife is at full speed…

Mer-ry Christ-mas!

Packing up the things they need…

Merry Christmas day!

CHORUS:  Doesn’t take all night,

                    Needn’t drive all day…

                     Driving only six hours

                    Gets them there, one-way!

Leaving town to stay a week…

Mer-ry Christ-mas!

Adirondacks near North Creek…

Merry Christmas Day!

(CHORUS)

From his job got two turkeys…

Mer-ry Christ-mas!

Found a neighbor was “veggie”…

Merry Christmas Day!

(CHORUS)

Maybe someone needs a bird…

Mer-ry Christ-mas!

Before they leave, I hope they’ve heard…

Before Christmas Day!

(CHORUS)

Her brother up there is getting a tree…

Mer-ry Christ-mas!

That his sister can decorate with glee…

For a Happy Christmas Day!

(CHORUS)

WHO WOULDN’T GO?

WHO WOULDN’T GO?

 

We have a Christmas request

From her brother at his behest…

To come up and share

Some fresh mountain air,

To be his family guests.

The last time, a year ago,

He was hurting so…

His wife had just died

But his sister replied,

That she wanted a Christmas tree so!

Brother Joe went out in the chill,

Finding answer for Diana’s will…

When the snow had dripped

He tied and chipped,

It into a warm fuzzy thrill.

So each year Joe asks us back

To his home in th’Adirondacks…

We’ll go and stay

And brighten his way,

For a week or so, making snow tracks.

A LITTLE BIT OF THIS…

A LITTLE BIT OF THIS…

A little bit of this and a little of that,

Assuming this will happen without a family spat…

Only so much room

For ornaments to groom

The Christmas tree when doing “tit-for-tat”.

First we do the lights,

And then by all rights…

We do the garland next

Putting balls betwixt,

With meanings truly mixed.

Putting tinsel over assumes

One has one of those POWER vacuums…

When the season is done

It isn’t much fun,

Picking tinsel up by hand all over the room!
