T'was just hours before Christmas and all through the town
There wasn't a drop of egg nog nowhere to be found.
I went to Harris Teeter, Food King and Food Lion
but not one of them was selling, so I wasn't buyin'.
I checked at the gas station, the drug store and bar
but the bartender shook his fist and said "Boy, git outta h'ar."
There are certain traditions at Christmas that matter
like cookies and cakes all spread on a platter.
But the greatest tradition of which I can think
is gooey, sweet egg nog almost too thick to drink.
Here, then, is some advice so that next year you won't grieve:
If you want to buy egg nog - don't wait 'til Christmas Eve.
MERRY CHRISTMAS FROM THESAUNDERSREPORT.COM.
