 'Twas The Night Before Christmas
(Abridged Wheaten Version)

'Twas the night before Christmas, and all seemed merrier
Not a creature was stirring, not even a terrier

The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
In hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there

 The children were nestled all snug in their beds
While visions of sugar-plums danced in their heads
And mamma in her 'kerchief, and I in my cap
Had just settled down for a long winter's nap
When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter 

 I sprang from the bed to see what was the matter

Away to the window I flew like a flash
Tore open the shutters and threw up the sash
When, what to my wondering eyes should appear
But a miniature sleigh, and five tiny reindeer

And then, in a twinkling, I heard on the roof
The prancing and pawing of each little hoof

As I drew in my hand, and was turning around,
Down the chimney St. Nicholas came with a bound
He was dressed all in fur, from his head to his foot

And giving a nod, up the chimney he rose
He sprang to his sleigh, to his team gave a whistle
And away they all flew like the down of a thistle
But I heard him exclaim, ere he drove out of sight,
Happy Wheatens to all and to all a good night!
