Department Store Santa Claus

Department store Santa Claus

shows up late and drunk for work.

Department store Santa Claus

is a big fat jolly old jerk.

Department store Santa Claus

slumping in his chair

he’s totally sauced

while children whisper wishes in his ear.

Department store Santa Claus

children sit on his knee one at a time.

Department store Santa Claus

hopes the beard hides the smell of the beer and the rye and the wine.

But children love him unconditionally

children love any old drunk dressed up as Santa Claus.

It reminds him of his ex-wife he loved her till she

took her make-up off.

Cause children grow up, children stop believing

children grow up and they start seeing him as the drunk that he is.

Throughout life we stop believing

learn how appearance can be deceiving 

needing others and lovers to bring our Christmas wishes.
