I'm Dreaming of a Warm Christmas

Twas the night before Christmas and all through our state not a snowflake had fallen, not ever this late

The grass was still green, it should have been dead and thoughts of the golf course danced in my head

El Nino they said was the true reason that we have forgotten about winter season

So Santa sat with reindeer in tow and wondered if ever he'd put on his show

We're hurting our planet little by little, who ever thought with Christmas we'd fiddle

And Santa just waited and thought of his firing, and wondered at his age if anyone's hiring.

It was much too hot for reindeer to play and only seemed to get hotter each day

The weather forecast was surely not  pretty, said it would  reach 65 in the city

Oh I long for days of blizzards and storms not of a world dialed forever to warm

And for all the children who lay in their beds with thoughts of Santa stuck in their heads

How can we tell them what we had done, that we are the ones who ruined their fun

And if you were waiting for happy endings, with sugarplums dancing and Claus descending.

Then you must believe in fairy tales like, global warming's not due to man's oversight

The truth is we are treating our planet so poorly it needs a complete overhaul shortly

So for all the babies and Santa too, for white blankets that cover our landscape anew

For all of the Christmas dreams to come true, for sleigh bells and stockings and Dancer too

For the sake of our future and those we love most, let's try not to turn this planet to toast

If we heed these words Santa will soon be in sight, with Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night.
