Bowls ‘n buckets ‘n baskets
The kitchen’s full’v such fantastic

Smells ‘n tastes ‘n sights ‘n sounds
Christmas cookies are make ’n the rounds

Stars ‘n trees ‘n canes ‘n mitt'ns
Sugar’d ‘n sprinkled ‘n frost’d for eat’n

Santa’s cookies for Christmas
Must be sample’d and test’d

I’m here to do it
Let’s get them ingest’d

Like sleighs and like reindeer
Name’d Donner and Blitzen

The cookies bring cheer
As a sign of the season

So you’ll hear me exclaim
‘Fore I sink out of sight

Merry Christmas to all
And to all a good bite!
