Beneath the Christmas tree


Once beneath the Christmas tree
Granddad told to me
Santa left what was to see
His Teddy bear Henri.

Once beneath the Christmas tree
Granny told me too
Santa left what was to see
Her China doll of Blue.

Once beneath the Christmas tree
my sister held me tight
Santa left what was to see
My Pop gun and a kite

Now beneath the Christmas tree
my daughters stand by me
Santa left what was to see
An ipad, phone and Wii.
