Oh how I wish that I could be
Those candy canes upon each tree
All shiny and so red and white
Delicious tasting, bite by bite.
While peppermint is full of zest
Let’s put each flavor to the test
I’m sure that chocolate is great
For other celebration dates.
Since Christmas comes but once a year
A time of joy, a time of cheer
I’d like to think that you and I
Will share these pleasures by and by !
