Topsy Turvy Christmas
by Bob Fiddaman


It's Christmas time again
The snow is falling down.
Its flakes are made of sugar
And are coloured chocolate brown.
There's snowmen without hats on
Dogs with ten foot tails
And Santa's sleigh with bells on
Is pulled by killer whales.
Christmas trees lean sideways
And monkey's live within.
They swing from branch to branch
And they make an awful din.
Holly is not prickly,
Bells don't make a sound.
Baubles on the Christmas trees
Are triangular, not round.
There's turkey's playing football
Against the three wise men.
They play with rolled-up stuffing
And the referee's a hen.
Cats sing Christmas carols,
Toys all come alive.
Action men have dresses
While Barbie scuba-dives.
There's gravy over puddings
And peas are filled with cream.
In my topsy-turvy Christmas,
My topsy-turvy dream.
