Santa Baby


by Hannah

With apologies to the writers, (Joan Javits, Philip Springer, Tony Springer), and Eartha Kitt, whose version was only matched to any degree by Cindy Lauper, far as I'm concerned!

Santa Baby,
Slip a book gift card under the tree
For me.
Been an awful good girl
Santa Baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight.

Santa Baby, a pre-owned Highlander, blue,
Will do.
I’ll take cartridge ink, too.
Santa Baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight.

Think of all the fun I’ve missed
Mom-ing, working, what a list!
Next year I might be agented, too,
If I got one more thing from you:

Santa Baby, I want some time to write
That’s all mine,
No whine,
No clients, kids, or dish lids,
Santa cutie,
So hurry down the chimney tonight.

Santa Baby, I remembered something
My ring
On my left finger down there
He’s where?
Taking the kids out for the day?
Hooray!
Santa Baby, thanks for coming down the chimney tonight!

Glad you enjoyed. Think I should email this link to my dear husband? Me, too! (And now, truth be told, off to write!)
