WHEN THE CHRISTMAS LIGHTS GET SHOVED UNDER THE BED

christmas_lights

Christmas is over now
Carols have stopped singing
Music is back to hip hop
Santa has taken his suit to the attic
Kitchen is no longer sizzling
Jingles have stopped ringing from bells
When the Christmas lights get shoved under the bed
Will you stop the merry cheer

Christmas has ended
Wishes of good cheer have declined
Music returns to reggae
Santa has shaved his white beard
Kitchen is sparkling clean
Bells dont jingle no more
When the Christmas lights get shoved under the bed
Will you stop the kindness

Christmas has closed its chapter
Greetings of new seasons reduce now
Music turns to Rhythm and Blues
Santa is now wearing a green shirt
Kitchen lights now turned off
Chimes from bells disappearing
When the Christmas lights get shoved under the bed
Will you still share meals

When the Christmas lights get shoved under the bed
Will you wait for next year
To eat and share and love and spread goodness
Or will the lights gather dust
Until they are pulled from under the bed
For another Christmas cheer
