'Twas the Night Before Christmas (Schuylkill County version)

Twas the night before Christmas and all through the Skook
Most families are sitting down to read their favorite Christmas book

The kids are excited to find out what may show up under their tree
Mom is in the kitchen finishing up the last ring kielbasi

My brudder is here who lives up da line
I think he just drank the last of our box of wine

Granny just got here, she's wearing her babushka too
The first words out of her mouth were "Jeet yet?" and I said, "No, D'joo?"

To get here, she traveled through Guntown, Shendo, and followed the Burma Road.
She couldn't make it last year because it snowed.

Dad is enjoying his Apple Pie Boilo like he does every year
The drunker he gets the more we are reminded he has yet to still get a deer

The stockings are hung and filled with lotree tickets and coal candy
They were just 2 for 5 last week over at the Ack-A-Me.

Earlier in the day, we ran Upda Mall.
Wait a minute, we are almost out of alcohol.

The quart store is already closed, so what should we do?
It's time for bed, so we'll take that as our cue.

Santa will be here soon, and we should get to bed real quick
I take one last glance outside, but all I see is the sulfur creek

Something wakes me during the night, and it's just what thought.
I look out side to see Santa flying away yelling "Merry Christmas to all and to all a Yo Bot!!"
