    I am a little fairy

    On tap o' the Christmas Tree

    It's no' a job I fancy

    Well how would you like tae be me

    A tarted up wi' tinsel

    It's enough to mak ye boak

    An a couple o' jaggy branches

    Rammed up the back o' your frock

    An' these wee lights a'roon me

    I canny get my sleep

    An' there's the yearly visit

    Fae Santa - Big fat creep!

    On Christmas Day I'm stuck up here

    While you're a' wirin' in

    An' naebody says 'Hey you up there

    Could you go a slug o' gin?

    It's nae joke bein' a fairy

    The job's beyond belief

    You've got to go roon' the wean's beds

    An' lift their rotten teeth

    But o' a' the joabs a fairy gets

    An' I've mentioned only some

    The very worst is sitting up a tree

    Wi' pine needles up yir bum

    When a' the fairies meet again

    By the light of' the silvery moon

    Ye can tell the Christmas fairies

    They're the wans that canna sit doon

    The Christmas tree's a bonny sight

    As the firelight softly flickers

    But think o' me I'm stuck up here

    Wi' needles in my knickers

    So soon as Christmas time's right by

    An' I stop bein' sae full o' cheer

    I'll get awa back tae Fairyland

    An' I'll see yous a' next year.

    My Christmas sermon last year discussed the significance of the Christmas tree decoration - NOT a pretty girl angel, but a mighty male who struck terror into the minds of the shepherds, or a star, leading the wise men to Jesus.

    An internet search yielded a very butch angel as a visual aid :!:

    Happy Christmas - & Happy & healthy New Year to ALL.

    I attached my angel to the tree using a cardboard tube, to avoid the discomfort your's suffered.
