Daddy, Daddy, answer me
what will i find, under the tree?
a dolly truck, that makes some noise?
Will I get stuffies or that doll
and candy chocolates galore?
will there be a little house
and a neat new pink-purple blouse?
Daddy, Daddy: I confess
I also need a mermaid dress!
and please, I need a unicorn!
and then adds with whiny tone
Daddy, I wanna new phone!
He has not heard that in a while
But when the tone gets all too shrill
Daddy cools down that too much thrill!
Come here, My lil one, listen please
Daddy speaks to the little tease
So many wishes, you have told
Are you sure, that you’re not spoiled?
No! no pouting – little one…
I know you just want to have fun
you did not mean it, getting wild
acting like an – ungrateful – child!
I know, My lil one, you have big eyes
and as not to spoil the surprise
while there is no guarantee
what Santa packs under the tree
I heard the angels as they say
Father Christmas has His ways
I heard the elders, who are wise
Yet only for children, who are nice!
Being nice, not tantrum dance
waiting, showing some patience
even though, it’s quite some wait
showing still some self restraint!
I also hear the Elves, they whisper…
Naughty children meet with Mister
Mister Wooden, Spoon or Brush…
better be patient and do not rush!
