Christmas Spirit

You better watch out
You better not cry
You better not pout 
I'm telling you why....
As soon as the words are sung by me, the kids behavior immediately improves.

Starting new ones, remembering the old ones
This time of year is full of them 

While most people are running around doing the hustle and bustle
Rushing until they can't take it anymore
We are sitting back and soaking in all of the Christmas spirit  
We take drives at night to look at all the Christmas lights
We eat our dinner next to the Christmas tree with a fire in the fire place
We keep the Christmas music on all day
We are making new traditions and reliving the old ones
And to avoid the hustle and bustle, I shop online and wait for the UPS man to deliver the packages.

The halls are decked
The season is jolly
The puppy only ate one ornament off the tree
Yes, it is the most wonderful time of the year....
