Jolly Old St. Nicholas,
I'm having a bad day.
Don't you tell a single soul
What I'm going to say.
Today's the last day of the world,
So the Mayan's say.
It's the last day of preschool,
So says my HOA.
I'll miss the kids, I'll miss their hugs,
The things we used to do,
But dear Santa, I love these kids.
That's why I came to you.
Keep them safe from guns and drugs
And from nightmares at night.
Watch out for them as they grow up,
And help them choose the right.
Help them remember they are loved.
That's my one small wish.
Well, that and to someday see my name
On the best seller list.
I won't cry when they leave today
Because I want them to see
The faith I have in each of them
And in their family.
Jolly Old St. Nicholas
If you stop by tonight,
Give them each a kiss for me,
And we'll all be all right.
