If this was on
my ganddaughter's
Christmas list
I would have headed
for a music store

Thrown myself at the mercy
At something with metal fragments
Sticking out of body parts
Me not knowing the differnce between
Blue ray and I-Pod.

I checked twice
Good news none of this stuff
Is on her list
Pays me right for half-listening
To TV's Inside Edition

Or what ever version of a
Fashion new-flash was on
I got the names right
Just the wrong product line
I'd need her sizes for all the above

Santa's even older than me
How does he figure all this stuff out
And still manage to say
As he pulls out of sight
HO! HO! HO! ? ? ? ? ? ? ?
