Not Half!

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Seeking out that perfect gift
No half-measures ‘cos you’re tired
Exquisite treasures required

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 No half-baked ideas or cunning plans
Or buying them the gift you’d like yourself
How to best spend your last half-crown
From that glittering array on the shelf

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 No half-hearted efforts on Christmas Eve
Choosing from half a dozen remains
Don’t stop for a swift half down the pub
Being half-cut won’t bring you reward
When you’re expected to lavish gifts of love

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 As half-time is called on this campaign
Our Chief Exec has decreed
That a half-season ticket is an ideal gift
It’s the very one thing we all need
Me being a long suffereing half-wit
I almost darn nearly agreed!
