If you need a little Christmas inside your dreary house,
Then you might need nothing more than a cheery mouse.
Little Christmas is a Godsend on a stormy winter’s day.
He has a big heart and always has something good to say.
With an Irish accent, he carries luck inside his vest.
A three-leaf clover behind his ear brings some extra zest.
He can sneak inside your stocking above your fireplace
And sprinkle cinnamon in your cider with a lot of grace.
He can snuggle on your shoulder, then slip into your shirt,
And sing carols right on key as he cooks a sweet dessert.
Almost like a Wise Man with epiphany in his soul,
He comes bearing gifts instead of ugly bags of coal.
So before you turn away a new friend with a tail,
Welcome him in your home, and merry will prevail.
