BLOGGER’S BEDTIME PRAYER

BLOGGER’S BEDTIME PRAYER

 

Now I lay me down to sleep,

I pray the Lord my blogs to keep…

If I die after I awake

I pray that one more poem I make

(and blog!)

 

–Jonathan Caswell

 

BLIZZARD!!!

BLIZZARD!!!

The blizzard’s coming now,

The blizzard’s coming now,

By noontime everything has to close…

The blizzard’s coming now!

The snow is coming down,

The snow is coming down,

The foolish ones will panic now….

The snow is coming down!

The wife won’t let me sleep,

The wife won’t let me sleep,

I gotta get up, prepare for the worst….

The wife won’t let me sleep!

–Jonathan Caswell 🙂

CLOSING TIME

CLOSING TIME

 

The week before Christmas

A craft fair shuts down…

The venders are gath’ring

Their wares toward home,

People have had their

Chance to come and buy…

Now the trinkets are gathered

Because Christmas is nigh!

The venders are leaving,

No time left to sell,

Though lots of stuff left

Some items did well…

The venders must go out and

Purchase for their own,

Presents that they’ll place under

Christmas trees at home!

 

–Jonathan Caswell

(Can be sung to one or more of the alternate tunes of “AWAY IN A MANGER”)

COME TO EDAVILLE

(www.edaville.com)

COME TO EDAVILLE

(Tune of” “Christmas is Coming”)

Come back to EDAVILLE,

Before it’s all closed down…

How will the kids remember

When it’s not around.

If you haven’t got a train set,

A train picture will do…

If you don’t have a train picture…

EDAVILLE IS THROUGH!

They’re selling the property

For ten million bucks,

If we had the moula*

We’d buy some railroad trucks…

If you haven’t got the moula*

An old postcard will do…

If you haven’t got an old postcard,

EDAVILLE IS THROUGH!

In this Christmas season

Trains are running late,

If you don’t get down to ride

It will be too late…

If you can’t get a train ride

The carousel will do,

If you can’t ride something…

EDAVILLE IS THROUGH.

—Jonathan Caswell

NOTE:  *moula is slang…for money!
