Twas the night before Christmas in the UK our home,
as house and pet sitters with so far to roam.
We travel the world, there's so much to see
while making new furry friends who need to go wee.
The tea kettle is on, the Christmas pudding is made
but the sun rarely shines it's just all gloomy with shade.
Yet out on the lawn there arose such a clatter,
we rose slowly from the couch to see what was
The flames of the woodstove are all sparkle and glow
and the Christmas tree twinkles with lights and fake snow.
The quaint little village in which this home be
is dotted with pubs full of fish, chips and tea.
While out on the lawn that's all wet from the mist
runs a scruffy tan dog just waiting to be kissed.
She chases a ball but longs for a treat, hoping
that Santa comes soon and brings her some meat.
The full moon shines brightly on the green mossy roofs
that might well provide padding for tired reindeer hoofs.
The old chubby man slides down from the sled
and pops into a pub where he has nothing to dread.
He orders some ale disguised as a cuppa tea
then stops into the loo to take a quick wee.
He stumbles and fumbles from too much Earl Grey
and needs to get going to be on his way.
We heard him exclaim as he drove out of sight,
cheerio and Merry Christmas to all from the UK tonight..
