Europe was at the end of a war.
Whole cities crumbled to nothing.
There was nothing here to live for.
I reflected why should I stay?
As a mysterious colored moon glowed above,
Fog blanketed the damp marsh ground below.
Thick white images swirled about the cove,
And haunting sounds echoed frightful woes.
Once there was a young boy
He sat on the floor playing with his toys
How sad he looked in his eyes
There was nil that could relieve his sigh.
I walked along the city harbor one day
When a bright red tugboat anchored ashore
The captain unloaded supplies from aboard
“Ahoy, Where is the shop Salt Away”?
It is getting colder and colder outside
Winter is coming around the corner
and so is Christmas with all its pride
I promise it won't be getting warmer.
I am so happy, oh yes I am so happy,
And I don’t care what anybody else says.
I put a little Christmas tree on my shelf today,
I decorated it with bright shining lights,
Green needles decorate kindling
A spicy pine odor fills the room
It is Christmas time very soon
Let’s give honor to the holy kings.
Down the chimney climbed Claus
He chuckled with such delight
HoHOHO he cried by night
His jolly work doesn't pause.
Back when I was at the age of ten,
I loved to jump up and down on my bed.
It was best when mom and dad were away.
There was nobody to tell me how to behave.
