The Ghost of Father Christmas
by DEAN FARNELL
Santa Claus Is just a ghost I’ve waited every year
I stay up every Christmas eve and shed a little tear
He never comes to our house I’d know if he had been
I see him in my mind sometimes it must have been a dream.
The spirits placed my presents around the Christmas tree
Or It’s my imagination playing tricks on me.
My Mother tells me Santa’s been, my Father said It’s true
They said he comes when you’re asleep just like they always do.
Every bloody year this happens I get this same old tale
I decided Santa is a ghost I’m not even sure he’s male
I’ll stay awake this Christmas eve just like I’ve done before
Please Santa show your face this year as I’m touching 54.
