Christmas time is here again;
that time when parent’s go insane.
A strange man sneaks into our home
dressed like a demented garden gnome.
We tell our children it’s alright;
strange men loitering in the night.
Tomorrow night it’s Stranger Danger
but ‘cos some kid born in a manger,
two thousand years ago they say
there was a very important day
some kid was born – the son of God;
to me it all sound kind of odd.
But there it is, he waved his hand
and there appeared out of desert sand
an old man dressed up in snow gear
driving a sleigh pulled by reindeer.
And somehow this amazing tale;
where all credibility’s fail
makes it all somehow alright
for stranger prowling in the night
and makes this stalker in disguise,
a hero now before our eyes.
