State of the Union

A nation divided,

With leadership derided,

Rivaling factions

On a tangent of distractions.

The media giving them fuel,

Focusing on the drivel,

Congress continues to show inaction,

Amidst a circus of tawdry attractions.

The state of the union

Is like cutting an onion —

Makes you weep.

Hit Pause for Santa Claus

Hey, hey, gimme a
minute,
Ya hear?

Hit Pause for Santa Claus,

I spend all year
Getting all the toys in gear
Show me some Christmas cheer.

Hear, hear,

Hit Pause for Santa Claus,

Ain’t askin’ you to stop your career,
Wanna make that very clear,
Just show me some Christmas cheer.

Hey, hey, honey chile’
Cantcha chill for a while?

Hit Pause for Santa Claus,

Let go of that hectic lifestyle,
C’mon, toss that office file
Shine on a big ole smile
Is all I ask with no guile.

Hit Pause for Santa Claus

Hey, that ain’t crampin’ your style,
Do somethin’ fun before you go senile;
Smile, smile, long as a mile.

It’s Christmas time in the city,
In the country,
In the valley,
So let’s have a pep rally

For Christmas merry, merry

Hit Pause for Santa Claus

Let’s all be jolly,
Stop and smell the holly.

Hit Pause for Santa Claus

So we can all have a merry, merry

CHRISTMAS
