“It’s a nice thing to do!”
Excitement is building, Christmas is here,
Our little girl’s smiling, she’s got an idea…
With a box, some paper, felt tips and some glue
She’s making a present ’cause, “it’s a nice thing to do!”
So who is it for, this personal piece?
My parents, my sister or a lucky niece?
There’s no doubt about it, she’s having fun
Making a present for a special someone…
As she finishes up, she tells me, “it’s done!”
And ta-da! This present is second to none…
It’s for Santa Claus, Father Christmas or is it Saint Nick?
The man in the red suit. What’s his name? Take your pick!
It doesn’t matter who’s name’s on the gift tag, you see
What matters is the idea to give lovingly.
She set to, making something straight from her heart
She gave her time and her effort… what great things to impart!
