Santa, Santa, Forget Me Not

Santa, Santa, forget me not
All year long, been a good tot
Made my bed, said my prayers
Ladies sit down, pulled out their chairs

Santa, Santa, forget me not
I’m good as gold, sister’s not
She pulled my hair, pinched me hard
Slut pushed me down in the yard

Santa, Santa, forget me not
Presents for everyone, I have bought
For me all I want is that choo-choo train
If I don’t get it, I’ll go insane

Santa, Santa, forget me not
Last year what you brought was squat
Reason you said is I’m a tattle tale
Good all year, not one did I blackmail

Santa, Santa, forget me not
I’ll leave you cookies, cocoa hot
Want a date with my mom?
She’s real hot, a real cherry bomb

Santa, Santa, forget me not
Got your note, postman brought
Says I broke the golden rule
Can’t trick me, I’m no fool

Santa, Santa, forget me not
Just a few things, I forgot
Forgive me please, I’ll change my ways
Bring that train, you, I will amaze

Santa, Santa, why no response
Why this asinine nonchalance
Give me exactly what I want
Or you, my ghost will forever haunt
