Dear Children...

It's Christmas Eve and time to sleep 
Lay down your heads, try counting sheep
Tonight, little ones... Santa comes
Upon his sleigh with presents heaped 

His elves look out for busy tongues
Boys and girls, heed the words of Mum
For Santa is a shy, old guy...
He'll only visit sleeping ones 

Across the world tonight he'll fly 
Beneath the moon in star-filled skies 
Calling at homes of every kid
Only pausing... to eat mince pies

Now squeeze, tightly shut, your eyelids 
The same way, your parents once did
So you'll not be sad Christmas Day
For Santa... cannot be outwit

Quickly children... he's on his way 
I think I hear his sleigh-bells sway 
So hurry now and go to sleep
Otherwise... you'll scare him away
