'TWAS THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS
Twas the night before
and all through the city,
while there was record snowfall,
the cops were still busy.
While the Dope Dealers
were in the lockup,
dressed in orange so bright,
the local narcs were on the move,
to bust a meth lab by moonlight.
When out on the lawn,
arose such a clatter,
I pulled the slide on my '9
to see what was the matter.
Twas the Swat team in
they rolled out in the snow,
Santa was quickly cornered,
he had no where to go.
But what before my wandering
ears did appear,
a cop said with a shout;
"The fat guy gave us the slip,
but we got his reindeer!"
"Move On!" The cops yelled,
at some guys gathering on the corner,
"Or, we'll bust some heads;
you'll soon need a Coroner!"
Santa slipped down my chimney,
all agile and quick,
I caught him with my laser-dot sight,
and he froze real quick!
"Now Christian, dear
he screamed out in glee,
"I am the spirit of Christmas--
don't be messin' with me.
"Up against the wall,
you demon" I said
with my word aimed at his neck,
"Jesus wasn't born on this day,
so his birthday you could wreck!"
I slapped on the cuffs,
and opened his bag to see;
I found a whole lot of my stuff from my house;
the fat dude was robbing me!
Santa wanted to get rowdy,
and call his attorney for a deal;
I pumped a round into his leg,
and you should have heard him squeal!
The paddy wagon arrived,
and Santa wanted to get cute;
"Who are you kidding, fat man" I told him;
"You'd better put on this orange suit!"
Sure, it was Christmas
but take a tip from me;
Don't let Santa break into a Christian's house,
at least not while the Christian is armed--
And as the paddy wagon
I heard Santa exclaim in the night;
"I'd never thought I'd find a Christian,
who was willing to put up such a fight!"
