On the air the scent of pine
And sounds of Christmas joy
Children playing, laughing, falling
Into beds of fallen snow
Inside, snuggled by the fire
Moms and dads watch with love
While their young shake the boxes
Under the Tree, wrapped in holiday foil.
Off to see what Santa left...
Fire trucks and dancing dolls
Candy canes and bouncing balls,
Merry Christmas One and All!
