The Xmas Gift

'Twas the week before Christmas…and all through the town Public Works staff was kickin'…to wind everything down From all the inspections….'n removing illegal signs And prayin' real hard….for NO broken lines Now these guys are good men…I want you to know They're here to serve Fairview…in sun, rain or snow With Duane as the "main man"…and his great disposition Ensurin' town trucks stay…in good mechanical condition Then we have Chad…a really likeable guy And hardworkin' Robert…kinda quiet 'n shy Cruisin' on in we have…Glenn, Martin and Ray And that "cool dude" named Darin….what more can I say? Now, the rest of the staff…they're as great as can be! But they all have one gripe…and it's quite plain to see That they're gettin' real tired…of sweepin' the floor From all the gunk tracked in…from Town Hall's back door To resolve this dilemma…I would like to present A special Santa's Helper…from North Pole 'twas sent It should hold a place of honor…and get rid of the crud And all the other stuff…that gets stuck in the mud Now all of you fellers…should have nice clean boots It'll prove to the rest of us…that you DO give a hoot Enough has been said now…and you've gotten the clue Merry Christmas to All…Merry Christmas to You!!
