the night before Christmas, and all was just right,
The candlelight twinkled, what a beautiful sight!
were coming right over in a minute or two
I scurried about with so much left to do!
just as I thought I’d left nothing undone,
I new something wasn’t right – how could I be so dumb?
the right was the kahlua, the baileys and rum
The cream, and the coffee – the food ! Oh yum-yum!
could it be that’s not right? I’m a dope!
I remembered the rum – but left out the coke!
at that moment I dashed right out the door!
Jumped right in the car – my right foot hit the floor!
backed right out the drive and turned left down the lane
Was I in my right mind, or was I insane?
there enough time left to get it all done?
Was this the right way to get coke for the rum?
hoped and I prayed that I was heading the right way!
I turned right and wondered – are any stores left open today?
made a right turn on to Maple Oak Way
Pulled right up to the store – it was open! Hurray!
left the car running as I ran right into the store
Found the coke, turned left and almost slipped on the floor!
paid for the soda, ran right out to my car
Opened the left door, which was already ajar.
much left to do except go right back in a rush
My right hand turned the mirror – my hair needed a brush!
mouth fell right open as I pulled up the drive.
Oh my goodness, the guests had already arrived!
ran right out of the car and right into my room
Changed my clothes, brushed my hair and left with a zoom!
all turned out fine – the night was just right
The candles looked great, of course – PL!
now I have just one thing left to cheer
Have a very merry Christmas and a right nice new year!
