Christmas Granny

This Christmas I am like a child
with merriment and glee;
I'm acting like an eight-year-old,
although I'm sixty-three!

I feel excitement in my bones,
I haven't got a care;
my heart's as happy as a clown,
I must be nuts, I swear!

I skip and dance from dawn to dusk,
I sing and jump and run!
You'd think by night I would be tired,
but no, I've just begun!

I don't know why I am this way,
but maybe it's because
I'm not grown up inside my head
and still believe in Santa Claus!
