Twas da weekend before Yule
And all through da house
Not a pastie was turnin
Not even a beer was bein drinkin
Da weekend was quiet
and it was filled with cheer
We decorated da tree
We sang our songs to Joe
We ate pasties all night long
while watchin it snow
We played Euchre by da fire
and told Yooper jokes
We laughed and we giggled
while we made scones.
We added whiskey to our coffee
and our egg nog as well.
We all talked about that
Finnish elf dat would appear.
We sure did enjoy ourselves way to much
Let’s hope that someone stays sober enough.
We gathered our neighbors by singing songs
As we walked down da Truax road in our long johns.
We even had some funny deer appear in da middle of da road.
We took dere pictures but dey came out all blurry.
We weren’t too sure if it was because we were drunk or the blizzard dat night
Den that strange man came out of da woods
He gave us a beer from out of his pouch.
And came with us singin from house to house.
But den in da morning we heard with delight
Joe talking to da stranger dat partied with us last night.
He was laughin and talkin to that jolly fat man
Dey were fightin over his blanket and toast with jam.
When dat old fat man saw us, he blew dust in our eyes
Den he winked at Joe and with total surprise
He disappeared from our sight!
Now as we all sit here playin Euchre during our Yule season
while drinkin da beer he left behind.
We keep on gabbin bout dat fat man and his deer
And all we hear from Joe is laughin with delight as doud dere was a joke bout dat fat man, his beer, and deer dat partied with us last night.
