The Christmas Cracker Jacker

The Christmas Cracker Jacker

Comes around once a year

And steals all the crackers

From where there's turkey near


He prances and he dances

He hops over the minced pies

To steal all the crackers

From underneath your eyes


He's hoarding all the prizes

In his cracker jacker lair

He has a million little combs to comb

His cracker jacker hair


The snaps he stores them separately

And ties them in a bundle

To make a bang so very big

That the snow covered ground will rumble


When he does pull off his plan

To make the boom which is his goal

It will be heard in every house, decked hall

And fairy lighted living room

From the north to the south pole.


The Christmas Cracker Jacker
