Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house
Not a creature was stiring cept me and my spouse.
The doors were all locked and the windows secured
For our house is set up for our safety assured.
With ma in her PJs and me in my shorts
We had just settled down to watch news reports.
Then came from the front door a terrible clatter
I jumpted to my feet to see whats the matter.
As I rounded the corner my pistol in hand
Inside of my home a stranger did stand.
He and his partner away they did bolt
For he realized his knife was no match for my Colt.
They got to the street but not far did they stray
For Ma she had called 911 right away.
And the Sheriff told me as he drove out of sight
Your the lucky ones, they killed two others tonight.
