At Last I'm Ready for Christmas

(One of our favourite family Christmas songs, by the inimitable Stan Rogers. Just hearing his voice makes me feel warm!)

We must be fools - just look at that pile!
You can hardly see the tree!
We said this year we'd keep things simple
Then did our usual spree
But it feels so good when the kids go nuts
It's worth the toil and strain
These kids are only this young once
It will never be so again.

At last I'm ready for Christmas
I've even finished the tree
At last I'm ready for CHristmas
Like I thought I'd never be
With my feet propped up by a good hot fire
And a matching inside glow
At last I'm ready for Christmas
With nearly two hours to go

Merry Christmas, Everyone!
