I saw him, I saw him, Santa Claus!
He came out of the woods with presents in tow,
His hat and his coat all covered in snow.
His nose was red, his hands were cold,
His heavy sack swung over his shoulders.
What was inside; do you want to know?
Well, nosey little children, I’ll tell you so:
His sack was closed, I didn’t get a peek,
It was tied up tight, full of mystique.
All I know is that it smelled so nice,
Like sweets and treats and Christmas spice!
