Christmas Cookies Part II...

The light went dim and I looked around
He was gone without a trace
Took the cookies, that I gave him
Stuffed them in his face

I was getting settled for the night
In my sleeping chair
When I felt a breeze and heard a voice
That whispered; "just beware..."

Oh Shit, com'on, you're kidding?
I got a concience thing?
Damn! I get no rest
As I saw his jewels and bling

What now, I ask; What do you want?
"Just a drink and a puff or two"
What for I ask, what's the deal?
What's it all to do with you?

What have I got to worry about?
Ok, I watched some porn
Hey you've got your bling, I see
Don't go tooting on your horn

You should be clean, if you're not squeaky
My days of sowing oats are gone
My wife knows most all my secrets
So What's this trip you're on?

I thought that I'd remind you
Of promises you broke
Days of riding with the "Terrors"
Nights of drinking rum and coke

That little sweetheart that you lied to
Told her you'd be back
Way out in Arizona
In that air-conditioned shack

Or about when you got amnesia?
Forgot you had a home
You was a horny Tom-cat
Had an eye that roamed
