Being stumped – so it appear
Santa Claus is standing here,
with a list of regulations,
longer than he will have patience.
Edicts, decrees and ordinance,
threaten so my existence!
You need a permit for each present,
the paperwork will not be pleasent!
We have to chip now Rudolphs ear
and need permission every year.
They want to know the weight and age
and if we kept him in a cage!
The working hours – stipulated,
the speed, of cause, is regulated!
The length of sleigh you have to know,
the drivers licens you should show!
The paper shufflers have their fun,
I do not get my work be done.
Christmas is not very far,
I`m looking for the nearest bar.
I think there is a ban on beer,
for the driver and his deer.
Jobsworth, pedant and bureaucrat,
will for sure will drive us mad!
