Every Christmas they re-enact
Washington crossing the Delaware River
To attack the British at Trenton.
Paintings of this historic event
Depict an ice clogged river
On a moonless night
Brave men all, no doubt.
This year`s re-enactment
Was carried out in bright sunshine
And a temperature around forty degrees.
Washington and his lads
Were swept away on the current
And all had to be rescued,
God Save The Queen.
