Oh Christmas Tree

Oh Christmas Tree, don't fall on me
I've watered you so carefully.
Oh Christmas Tree, don't fall on me
The presents they are pretty.

We love your lights and sparkly star
We wonder in all that you are.

Oh Christmas Tree, don't fall on me
As I baste the turkey.

Oh Christmas Tree, don't fall on me
The kids they are so dirty.
Oh Christmas Tree, don't fall on me
My home it needs a cleaning.

The people they will be here soon
Oh lord, I look like a baboon.

Oh Christmas Tree, don't fall on me
Again I baste the turkey.

Oh Christmas Tree, don't fall on me
The stuffing it is ready.
Oh Christmas Tree, don't fall on me
The veggie plate is heavy.

I've swept and cleaned your cozy home
I've chosen music for you alone.

Oh Christmas Tree, don't fall on me
I need your light to greet me.

Oh Christmas Tree, don't fall on me
The turkey has a problem.
Oh Christmas Tree, don't fall on me
The gizzards, I forgot them.

We got the knife and dug right in
My husband laughed, and had more gin.

Oh Christmas Tree, don't fall on me
The turkey still was tasty.

Oh Christmas Tree, don't fall on me
The people they were merry.
Oh Christmas Tree, don't fall on me
And now we are so weary.

With full bellies, we cleaned the mess
The kids asleep, it's time to rest.

Oh Christmas Tree, don't fall on me
Your beauty it's enchanting.




Merry Christmas!

Our tree is currently tied to the radiator with bungee cords. Whatever works.

Merry Christmas to you and your family!

That's the spirit. Our tree isn't thirsty any more. I think it died, right along with .....

Our Christmas Tree isn't going to fall, but the sharp covers for the Christmas lights are getting yanked off and dispersed like barbed wire by the baby! Ouch!!

Merry Christmas to you and yours!
