(Based on T'was the night before Christmas)

T'was the morning of Christmas
Where all through the house
Not even a sound , of even a mouse.
And out in the park
I was up with the lark
Me and the dog were out in the dark.

T'was the morning of Christmas
And back in the flat
All the cats were sat on the mat.
No children are happy and joyfully glee
For l now live alone, just the animals and me.

The turkey is stuffed
And the veg. is roasted
The cards are all written and already posted.
The tree's crammed with tinsel that's sparkling & glistening
The Queens on the telly
But i'm not really listening.
With presents galore and families merry
I think i'll stay home for a nice glass of sherry.

T'was the night now of Christmas
Where back in the house
The sound is much louder and everyones rounder.
All of the excited girls and good boys
Have had, and played with lots of toys
We've eaten chocolates and all the mince pies
Its time now for bed
And to close our eyes.
