The Fright Before Christmas

Billy loves this time of year,
his gifts are filled with Christmas cheer,
they bring a smile to all who see
a gift from Billy Docherty.

One Christmas eve on night so cold,
he sent a gift of legend told,
a package wrapped in ribbon red
and inside lay a severed head.

The gift was for his bride to be,
Miss Violet Rose he would marry,
he’d loved her since the seventh grade
when promise of her heart she’d made.

But Violet’s heart belonged to Jed,
on Christmas day they would be wed,
she’d loved him since the day they met
and Billy’s vow she did forget.

So Billy in his own sweet way
made right the wrongs of yesterday,
he sent a gift with card that read
'Dear Violet Rose, your lovers dead'.

Billy loves this time of year,
his gifts are filled with Christmas cheer,
he dreams of being Violet’s beau
but Billy sits upon death row.
