The apple pie's bakin', now the
children are wakin'
And I'll buy a big turkey today
Fruit salad with cherries, I'm cookin' cranberries,
My poinsettias are all on display
My fridge I've been fillin', with eggnog for chillin'
Got pineapples for the big ham
The presents wrapped up, except for the new pup
For Christmas I'm ready, I am
While fudge I'll be tacklin', I'll hear chestnuts cracklin'
Sweet aromas are fillin' the air
My white Christmas candles, burn bright on the mantles
A pretty red apron I'll wear
Home-made cornbread for dressin', tho' I must be confessin'
'Twas my mother who taught me to cook
Lots of practice each year, said 'you must learn dear'
Now I'm happy for the time that she took
I bought lots of new holly, now I'm feelin' so jolly
And I even bought one mistletoe
For food we'll have plenty, with weather so wintry
The trees are all covered with snow
But with all the 'tradition', I'd like to make mention,
That santa will not be involved
For it's Christ Jesus's Birthday, in our home it's that way
Not a secret or a mystery to solve
So with our celebratin', we'll know without statin'
The TRUE meaning of Christmas Day
When the blessin' is given, in HIS Name coz' HE's livin'
We'll remember that as we all pray.
