Christmas comes just once a year,
Which makes your parents smile from ear to ear.
For Christmas does not come cheap,
The prices of gifts is rather steep.
Rather than asking for quite so many,
Consider telling them to save their pennies.
This may sound tough and you’d rather not,
But think of all the nice stuff you’ve got.
The video games, the dolls, the BMX bike,
So many things I’d rather like.
As a matter of fact, beg for more,
Get more and more gifts forget the poor.
Don’t you worry you’re doing a good deed,
Because I’m actually quite in need.
If you do I’ll stop my rant,
And no longer say that you can’t.
Ask for Christmas to stop by more,
Get your parents down to the store.
Then pretty soon it’ll be thrice a year,
And make your parents frown from ear to ear.
