The cats are enjoying the Christmas tree,
Knocking baubles off quite happily.
Flinging needles in the air,
Tearing up crackers without a care,
Climbing right up to the top
And biting at the lights a lot.
Yes, the cats are enjoying the Christmas tree,
But it’s not such a merry time for you and me.
Our gifts are shredded, the flat a state,
I’m hoovering up the mess till late.
And even worse – I must confess –
We’ve drunk all the sherry to combat the stress.
But we’ll get through Christmas, despite the tree,
The naughty kittens and you and me,
‘Cos things aren’t as bad as we think –
We still have a lot more wine to drink….
