A Beatles Christmas


By Bud Lemire

Cassie loved the Beatles, she thought they were grand
Abbey Road, Magical Mystery Tour, Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band
She imagined herself, as one of the screaming girls in the crowd
She knew each song very well, and would sing them out loud
It was one Christmas, her family was gathered at night
What could Santa get her? She smiled with delight
“Well, I don't have “Rubber Soul” or “Revolver” yet”
She wanted them all, so she could complete her set

It'll take time, before she had them all
She really loved John, Ringo, George, and Paul
She was so thankful, to love music like she did
She's been singing these songs, since she was a little kid
Now she is ten, and just starting out
As she sang out a verse of “Twist And Shout”
She first heard them on the radio
That's how she knew them so

Christmas Eve came, she was so excited to know
Santa was coming, with his “Ho! Ho! Ho!”
She hoped, that the Beatles music would be in his sack
She wanted it so badly, she sang out “Get Back”
On Christmas Day, the gifts from Santa were there
She stood there staring, and playing with her hair
Then she saw a wrapped gift, with her name on the top
That must have come all the way, from Santa's workshop

She opened the present, and jumped so very high
“Rubber Soul,” “Revolver,” and “Let It Be” caught her eye
“Yes!” she screamed so very loud
Feeling just like the girls in the crowd
Her Christmas this year, was the best it could be
For the Beatles came through, under the tree

Several days before Christmas, Santa was thinking
Listening to The Beatles, and Egg Nog he was drinking
He always liked the Beatles, and listened to them each year
He was happy to bring one little girl, some Christmas Cheer
