Once upon a Christmas slumber, as we slept amid some thunder,
Thunder though, it wasn’t at all, it was a green, red and white UFO come to call.
Up we went into the sky, Jacque and nobody else but I.
We shot up high and flew over each of your homes,
And wished you a Merry Christmas, you probably thought we were a drone.
It was then that we saw Santa Claus fly by, with four polar bears and a reindeer at his side.
Ho! Ho! Ho! St. Nick laughed as he shot through the sky. He looked to be a right jolly guy.
On Hector, Go Ralph, Run Mookie, Fly Sam, he prodded the polar bears and they ran and they ran.
Then our UFO took us up by the moon, whose face was all funny as if he had eaten a prune.
Finally, our craft flew under a star, the biggest, the brightest, ever seen from near or afar.
A monitor lit up and we saw such a scene, a baby in a manger, oh what a dream!
Angels sang Peace on Earth, and Goodwill to all women and men, wishes we extend to you all our very dear friends.
The baby represents all that is pure; He left us the gift of gold in the form of a simple rule:
“So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you.”
That’s what Jesus taught us; it is true.
Christmas time, Oh Christmas time,
When dreams of sugar plums dance in our heads, when children sleep all snug in their beds,
When dreams of UFOs are a delight, when cities are lit up with Christmas lights.
We wish you a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays too. Whatever you celebrate, it’s OK with us two.
Lots of love from David and Jacque Madrid; You may think this dream merely a fib.
But Christmas season is a magical time, and I’ve got a picture to go with my rhymes.
