The holidays, a Christmas sock,
turkey cooking in the oven,
remembering how wrong I’ve been,
my mind listens for Santa’s knock.
His sleigh is coming t’wards my block,
I cannot change my acts of sin,
the time I laughed at Joey’s chin,
or put that roach in papa’s beer…
The bells! A ho-ho-ho – he’s here!
God help me! Santa’s in the den!
