I WANT A PUPPY FOR CHRISTMASS By Lewis Wamwanda

Written by Editor

I want a puppy for Christmas

Only a puppy will do

Not a cock or hen, neither a cow nor goat

I want a puppy to look after, to love

I want a puppy for Christmas

And nothing else will make me happy, I know

You don’t have to wrap it in paper or box

Just whistle and it will follow you here

Now my worst fear on Christmas

Is to wake up in the morning

Run down the stars… And

Oooh…boxes and gifts wrapped on papers
