Deck the Halls? :: boot

’Tis the season to wear bathers Fa la la la la, la la la la, Mum said we’ll go swimming at hers, Fa la la la la, la la la la, Now we don our beach apparel, Fa la la, la la la, la la la, Check the waves for a good barrel, Fa la la la la, la la la la!

Ohhhh, here comes Scrine-bird, Here comes Scrine-bird Right down Scrine-bird lane Jackie O and Goliard and all his Scriners, Writing on the net Bells are ringin’, ‘mouse is singin’ All is merry and bright Hang your stockings and say your Other Keiths ‘Cause Scrine-bird comes tonight! Here comes Scrine-bird Here comes Scrine-bird Right down Scrine-bird lane He’s got a post that’s filled with words For boot and e again Hear those Scrine-casts jingle jangle, Oh what a beautiful sight So jump in bed and cover your head ‘Cause Scrine-bird comes tonight!
