Sorting out the attic was no easy job to do
Things we never knew we had, things old and new
The festive decorations in boxes full of dust
And even poor old reindeer, it's horns were full of rust
The house was looking boring as all the others shone
If we didn't get a move on the season will have gone
And though the lights were working, they were in a tangled mess
You'd need a degree in science or physics to straighten out no less!
My silly hairbrained hubby decided today to put them up
So with ladder under his armpit he dropped hammer on his foot
The lights were wrapped round his torso, like a fairy frock
I hope the electric's off coz he'd sure be in for a shock
He clung on to the gutters and placed each little light
"These should be a picture when I turn them on tonight"
His acheivement and satisfaction was written on his face
"They should be able to see these from somewhere out in space"
So now I have a light show, a grotto inside and all
My house like a wonderland but still no bloomin wall!
We could put a bit of tinsel around that great big hole
Perhaps a tree and presents and reindeer and a foal
We could have a festive gala a cabaret, a show
You can see our house for miles, through the gable end Y'Know!
Still, the geese will have a party, the chickens and goats too
Festive fun for everyone though they won't have a clue!
The indoor lights weren't working, we went through every light
Took them out and blew them and screwed them back up tight
They were lay across the living room you couldn't see the floor
But none of them did their bit so we'll have to buy some more
I do not know the difference between LED or not
And I couldn't remember the colour-- I simply forgot
Was I to get twinkly ones or ones that looked like snow
One's that did a million things that send you to and fro
Ones that flash like beacons and all at once go mad
They were the craziest display that we ever had
In fact the cat went silly as it watched from the floor
She was quite excited, till she could stand no more
She leapt to try and catch one but it got away
Kept her quite busy for the rest of the day
So off I went this afternoon to purchase some new lights
I'm really quite mesmerised by all the twinkly sights
I stood with finger on bottom lip wondering which to pick
I watched them go in and out and began to feel quite sick
It was all becoming silly and I had to choose a set
It was almost time for dinner and I hadn't been home yet!
Finally I saw them decision made they're mine
180 LED lights I think they will be fine
My hubby will be busy, as tonight we will switch on
A festive end to this year and one I'm glad has gone!
