Christmas Carol

I was hoping to catch you under the mistletoe
At the Christmas party but you didn’t show.

I was wishing I could be with you,
With your nose ring and your blue tattoo.

I thought I might find you somewhere
So I roamed the streets and sniffed the air.

And when I saw you coming out
Of the movie house, I didn’t shout.

I said, “Funny meeting you here, I was just on my way
To see that new Nativity play

They’re putting on at Our Lady of Hope.
Would you like to come? Nope?”

You said something about wanting to go home.
Your lips were shiny as chrome.
