Poor old Mom was crying in her beer,
For nowhere anywhere did she hear
The lovely sound of Christmas song,
Of wrapping paper being ripped,
Of joyful laughter all along,
Of homemade eggnog being sipped,
The joys to which she was accustomed
On Christmas Day were somehow missing --
And what to her wondering ears should appear
(Above the sounds of submisteltoe kissing)
But her favorite offspring, whom she holds so dear:
The bold Rapparee! Of course she loves
All her other children, all,
And I shall name them: Rapparee, Amos, Stilly,
Acme, gnu, Teresa, Khandu, Bobert, GUEST, Clinton Hammond,
Eisley, Joe Offer, Liz the Squeak, GUEST #, Peace, Bee-dubya-ell,
Oh dear, I can't remember them all...and the rhyme scheme and meter have broken down --

Merry Christmas! Feliz Navidad! Fröhliche Weinnachtfest! Joyeux Noël! Gleðileg Jól! Wesołych Świąt! Giáng sinh vui vẻ! etc.
Geseënde Kersfees!
