Christmas Fayre

Tighten up your floppy belt

Pull in your bulging belly

Go for a walk on Christmas Day

Donít watch whatís on the telly

Resist the urge to eat some more

Of grandmaís Christmas cake

Or gulping down another beer

Youíll just get belly-ache

That walnut whip will do no good

So donít you be so hasty

Eating everything in sight

Despite it being tasty

Yes Christmas food is excellent

And thereís no need to diet

But moderation is the key

Even though you want to try it

So donít be miserable as sin

Eat cake topped with a cherry

Just little bits of this and that

Will make your Christmas merry
