GLOWIN, BLOWIN, JUMPIN, SWAYIN, WISHIN, SWINGIN, DANCIN, ROCKIN, FISHIN, LAUGHIN CHRISTMAS TREE

By: Dan Blakeslee December 25, 2011

When I came in from a wintry night to warm up by the fireside light.
Something strange I did see while looking at the decorations on the tree.

The gingerbread man reached out his hand to Anne elf and began dancin.
Llama started laughin loud and pretty soon they had a good crowd.

Glowin, blowin Christmas Tree
I have made a wish on thee.
The ornaments on your branches bright
Please bring them to life tonight.

Up high in the tree with a candy cane the Nutcracker went fishin.
Caught the rocking horse and three Kings crowned,
Every sweet tooth from the top to the ground.

The airplane is circling a popcorn strand.
The tree is jumpin, swayin nearly out of its stand.
You can't help but listen to the birdie who is whistlin.
Higher than the stars that shine...

Blink, blink went the lights as they hugged the spruce
To the rhythm of the train and the honk of the goose.
The chimney rang that joyous sound
Till the red suit man with the beard came round!
