ARETHA FRANKLIN lyrics : "TWAS THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS"

Twas the night
Before christmas
When all through the house

Not a creature was stirring
Not even a mouse


The stockings all hung
By the chimney with care
In hopes

That st. nicholas
Soon would be there


The children were nestled
All safe in their beds
While visions of sugarplums

Danced in their heads

And mom in her kerchief

And i in my cap,
Had just settled down
For a long winters nap


When out on the lawn
There arose such a clatter

I sprang from my bed
To see what was the matter


Away to the window
I flew like a flash
Tore open the shutters

And threw up the sash

The moon on the breast

Of the new fallen snow
Gave the lustre
Of midday

To object below

When what

To my wandering eyes
Should appear
But a miniature sleigh

And eight tiny reindeer

With a little ol driver

So lively and quick
I knew in a moment
It must be st. nick


More rapid than eagles
His courses they came

As he whistled
And shouted
And called

Them by name

Now dasher

Now dancer
Now prancer
Now vixen

On comet
On cupid
On doner

An blitzen

To the top

Of the porch
To the top
Of the wall

Now dash-away
Dash-away
Dash-away all


As dry leaves
Before the wild

Hurricane fly
When they meet
With an obstacle
Mount to the sky


So up
To the housetop
The courses
They flew
With a sleigh

Full of toys
And st. nicholas too

And then
In a twinkling

I heard on the roof
The prancing
And pawing
Of each little hoof


As i drew in my head
And was turning around
Down the chimney
St. nicholas
Came with a bound


He was dressed
All in fur
From his head
To his foot
And his clothes
Were all tarnished
With ashes and soot


A bundle of toys
He had flung
On his back
And he looked
Like a peddler
Just opening

His pack

His eyes
How they twinkle
His dimples how merry
His cheeks
Were like roses

His nose like a cherry

His drawl little mouth
Was drawn up like a bow
And the beard of his chin
Was a white as the snow


The stump of his pipe
He held tight
In his teeth
And the smoke it
Encircled his head
Like a wreath


He had a broad face
And a round little belly
That shook when he laughed
Like a bowl full of jelly

He was chubby and plump
A right jolly old elf
I laughed when i saw him
In spite of myself

A wink of his eye
And a twist of his head
Soon gave me to know
I had nothing to dread

He spoke not a word
But went straight
To his work
And filled
All the stockings
Then turned
With a jerk

An laying a finger
Along side his nose
An giving a nod
Up the chimney
He rose

He sprang
To his sleigh
To his team
Gave a whistle
An away
They all flew
Like the down
Of a thistle

But i heard him exclaim
As he drove out of sight
Happy christmas to all
And to all a goodnight

Hmmm
