REST YE MERRY GENTLEMEN


Christmas Tree Clip Art

Go on, rest ye merry gentlemen
after Christmas lunch,
remember to leave tummy room
for cakes and chocs and punch,
to save you from dyspepsia
have Rennies there to crunch,

Oh, noises of grunts and snorts and snores,
snorts and snores,
Oh, noises of grunts and snorts and snores.

Awaiting the Queen's speech you try
to slip in forty winks
but Junior's rat-a-tatting toy
forces a rethink,
you give that toy the evil eye
and curse it with a jinx,

Oh at Christmas we're crackers one and all,
one and all,
Oh at Christmas we're crackers one and all.

Merry Christmas to each and every one,
ho, ho, ho,
Merry Christmas to each and every one.
