Stranger in red

Was I the only kid that ever got scared

That in dead of night a man in red, 

With hidden face and long white beard

Would come and crawl around my bed?

I shut my eyes and kept them tight

I partly did so out of fright.

I had been warned I shouldn’t wake

But found it hard to sleep that night.

Bring me presents but Santa please

Drop them quietly then just leave.

Don’t come creeping round my bed

I hardly know you when all’s said.
