'Twas the night before Christmas, and all through our house
The puppy was stirring and wanted to go out.
The stockings were hung just out of reach,
So the puppy wouldn't have a stocking stuffer feast.
Kathi and David were nestled all snug in their air bed
While visions of real mattresses danced in their head.
With John in his kerchief and I in my cap
The dogs woke us up from our long winter's nap.
Out on the lawn the dogs rose such a clatter
The neighbors sprung from their beds to see what was the matter.
What to their wondering eyes should they see
But a brown spotted dog and a brown lil' puppy.
While walking on Christmas night for a bit
We looked in the sky and saw big St. Nick.
We heard him exclaim as he drove out of sight,
"Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!"
