"You pig!" Cried the children. "You rotter! You joke!

Why lie to us about that big jolly bloke?

I'll bet you giggled as we listened to you,

And got excited 'bout what we thought would ensue!

We left out the cookies, the milk, and the carrots.

'Be good', you repeated, like a bunch of parrots.

'Cause if you don't, you'll get nothing from him,

He'll leave you alone if you dare commit sin.'

There's no fluffy beard, red suit or reindeer-

Why fill us with unneeded excitement or fear?

No, don't deny it, I caught you in the act:

Carrying those presents downstairs- you treacherous rat!

No, you disgust us, don't try to say sorry.

Please go throw yourself under a big, heavy lorry.

We hate you- oh! You got us the new Thomas Choo-choo?

Please, forget what we said, we really love you!
