Don't be caught off guard
Do your work a little early
It's not all that hard.
Hang your Christmas lights up 'fore the
leaves have all gone brown
Next year you'll be ready if you
never take them down!
Buy your Christmas presents at the
sales on New Years Day
Keep them in the closet safely
wrapped and tucked away.
Come the holidays and they sit
underneath the tree
You find you don't remember what on
Earth those gifts could be!
A tie for Uncle Edward who just
died the month before
Tap shoes for little Susie who's not
A His and Hers bath towel set for your
cousins Nan and Nate
who decided this past summer they were
going to separate.
With just a little planning it's not
difficult to do
Preparation is a gift
that you give to you!
