Frank & Ed's Christmas Song


I'm not dreaming of a white Christmas,

And I'm not big on sleigh rides in the snow.

It's not that I'm against the season, Golly, Gosh, Oh No!

It's just that my old bones don't like the cold.


And it's cold out there in the winter air,

And it's steamy and warm in the barn.

My fingers 'near froze, mending harness so old,

All for some "Good Old Days" charm.


I was getting in the spirit as I went to feed old Ed.

So I started singing Irvin Berlin's song.

And I'm sure I heard Ed say, between forkfulsí of hay,

"I hope that you don't take this message wrong! But!


I'm not dreaming of a white Christmas,

And I'm not big on sleigh-bells in the snow.

It's not that I'm against the season, Golly, Gosh, Oh No!

It's just my old bones donít like the cold.


And it's cold out there in the winter air,

And it's steamy and warm in the barn.

I'm old and I'm grey, and it's such a nice day,

To stay in here where it's warm."


Break


"So fire up the tractor, and turn the heater on.

Hitch up the wagon, have some fun.

Take along a can of oats, to give to Mr. Ed,

And remember all the work his family's done.


Tag Roll around the country sing some songs.

Tag end Gather up the neighbors, have some fun."
