How Do You Know It’s Christmas?

Edgar's picture

So how do you know it’s Christmas?

‘Cause the sheep can always tell.

They follow a little tradition and have for quite a spell.

On Christmas Eve around midnight, the sheep, wherever they are

All rise in quiet unison and fixate on a star.

And from their stirring comes a sound, a chuckling tra, la, la

That weaves and builds itself into a soft melodious baaa Which carries like a dove’s lament when nights are very still

As if they’re calling for someone beyond a yonder hill.
