I remember one Christmas day

On which Mom and Dad sneaked their way

Past our bedrooms because

They thought we still had Santa Claus

In our sleepy heads dancing away.

But after they went into the kitchen

And had some coffee with Uncle Ben,

They went into the living room and

Saw their three little darlings stand

By the tree and asking, "Where have you been?"

You see, Mom and Dad's big mistake

Was forgetting that we were able to fake

Being asleep in order to see

Santa with gifts for me

And my family instead of a snake.
