And cooked the best foods she could find;
Spent money on those who'd be coming,
Spent hours - no, days - of her time.
The party girl dressed in her finest,
Stood awaiting the guests by the door;
Waited 'til dinner was spoiled,
Waited, and waited some more.
The party girl phoned all the numbers
But nobody answered her call,
So she tidied away all the clutter,
Took the food to the garden wall.
The foxes and badgers were waiting;
Hare, deer and fieldmice as well,
And they partied until the dawn chorus
Blessed them all with a Joyous Noel.
