A Funny, Sunny Christmas…

24 Dec

 

Christmas here is somewhat queer

Down in the southern hemisphere

The days are long instead of short

And where a suntan can be caught

No cosy nights around the fire

No carol singing outdoor choir

No scarves and gloves and fleecy tops

Just skimpy shorts and flippy- flops

But don’t you think there’ll be no drink

‘Cause many a glass we shall sink

Of beer and wine and spirits too

As on the beach they barbeque

They’ll sing and dance in celebration

People of the rainbow nation

Santa hats and festive fun

Their smiling greeting second to none

I for one won’t miss the chill

But bask in sunshine just until

It’s time for me to homeward go

To my beloved boat – Hobo

But till I do there’ll be no moans

Of missing Slade’s non- dulcet tones

The thought alone fills me with dread

That I should hear them in my head**

My best to you and festive cheer

Here’s hoping for a great new year.

 

**Which of course I now do…
