Jolly old St Nicholas

Jolly old St Nicholas

But was he actually

I have known many Men

Grumpy bastards every one

But underneath their grumpy heads

A heart of gold does lie

Just do not mention all the kind

and selfless things they did.

Do not mention the lunch they brought

for the kid that had none of his own.

Do not mention the lawn they mowed.

Sneeking over when the owner was at work,

Or do not mention the fresh strawberries

Placed gentley by the door.

For everyone of these old men

Would hate their exterior ruinned.

Grumpy old man must be

A jolly job indeed.
