Twas the week before Xmas and all through the ‘hood
The kiddies were excited like wee kiddies should
The thoughts were of Target, and Kmart this year
The dollhouse, the Barbie, the LEGOS oh dear
What mommies all know way deep in their soul
Is their kids whining for presents will never grow old
Cause each little girl and each little boy
Likes to spend the holidays withe more than one brand new toy!
Merry Xmas everyone!
