Little Sammy J went shopping with his mummy and daddy one day

So much to do, many things to get, as Christmas was not far away!

He had a little Christmas suit to wear, and he went around spreading Christmas cheer

Because he really did think Christmas was the most wonderful time of year.

He smiled at this person, and that one too, laughing at any that looked his way

He rocked his head in time to the music and his head, back and forth would sway

He went along,  and everywhere he went, he spread some Christmas cheer

He had not a care in the world, not a fear

Until…the grouchy old man with a nose out of shape,

Who looked like he had eaten a gazillon mouthfuls of sour grape,

Said with a scowl, “Why do you sway?”

“You’ll get a crook neck, dancing that way!”

Sammy J stopped for a moment, then waved at the man

And smiled again, thinking he was a fan

The scowling old man shook his head and scoffed out loud

And walking away mocking, quite tall and quite proud

Little Sammy J kept smiling away, spreading Christmas cheer,

All the while thinking, “I did not think the Grinch lived here!”

Little Sammy J went to church with his mummy and daddy one day

There was many things to do, as Christmas was not far away

He had his Christmas suit on, and everything he did, he was spreading Christmas cheer

Because he really did think Christmas was a most wonderful time of the year.

He sang all the songs, and danced merrily along while playing with his friend

He stared at the people, and hoped that this joyous time would not end

He really enjoyed watching all the people, and spreading his Christmas cheer

He had not a care in the world, not a fear

Until…the grouchy old lady with an ear out of joint

Who looked like she had heard too many a sermon point

Said with gruff tone in her voice,

“Quiet, you boy, we’re trying to rejoice!”

Sammy J stopped for a moment, then waved at the lady

And smiled again, thinking her a little crazy

The gruff little old lady shook her head and “Hmpfed” out loud

Then turned around, sitting quite tall and quite proud

Little Sammy J kept smiling away, spreading his Christmas cheer,

All the while thinking, “I did not know the Grinch lived here!”

Little Sammy went to the pageant with his mummy and daddy one day

There were many things to see, and Christmas was not far away.

He had on his Christmas suit, and smiled at all, spreading his Christmas cheer

Because Christmas really was the most wonderful time of the year

He smiled at the floats, so big and tall, the clowns and their wigs

With some other people dressed up as elves, dancing silly jigs

He smiled and laughed and clapped his hands, spreading his Christmas cheer

He had not a care in the world, not a single fear

Until…a grumpy little man with a mouth bigger than his belly

Said with a sour note, “This is all a bit smelly”

Sammy J stopped for a moment, and knew he was right

But smiled anyway, and gave the grumpy little man a fright

He turned on his heel, saying, “Phew” and holding his nose

And poor Little Sammy J’s mummy had to change all his clothes

All the while, Little Sammy J went on spreading his Christmas cheer,

At the same time he was thinking, “I did not know the Grinch lived here!”

Little Sammy J went driving with his mummy and daddy to see some lights one day

There were many places to see, as Christmas was really not far away

He had on his Christmas PJ’s and was spreading his Christmas cheer

Because Christmas really is the most wonderful time of the year

He stared at all the pretty trees, with bright and flashing lights

His daddy held him in his arms as he took in all the sights

He smiled, and “Awwed” and spread his Christmas cheer

He had not a care in the world, not a single fear

Until…a grouchy little person, whose eyes seemed too cross

Said with an intruding tone, “It’s all pagan, you see, it’s heresy, and all is loss!”

Sammy J stopped for a moment, looked up at his dad

Who was looking at the man who looked quite mad

Then said with a flash, “And Merry Christmas to you, you silly mug”

To which the man replied as he walked away, “Bah!Humbug”

And Sammy J smiled again, and started spreading more of his Christmas cheer

All the while thinking, “I did not think the Grinch lived here!”

Little Sammy J sat on his daddy’s lap one Christmas eve night

There were many things to hear, as Christmas Day was now in sight

He had on his Christmas PJ’s, and was wrapped in Christmas cheer

As now his daddy told him why Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year.

He listened as he heard about the baby born to Mary

The part about Herod was really quite scary

But he now knew even better the reason to have Christmas cheer

Because Jesus had come to earth, and God has come near

So…there really is nothing to fear, or worry about

God has come down to sort it all out

Sammy J stopped for a moment, then looked at his dad,

And realised he felt quite glad

Because his mummy and daddy who loved him so dear

Had told him the best news he could ever hear

Jesus had come for him, so all who saw Sammy J’s Christmas cheer could see

That He had come to die for the Grinch that lives in you and in me
