ooh...santa's sure a tight one

yeah, children...its just a week away
christmas a week away
yeah, children...its just a week away
christmas a week away

they bust their butts all day...they bust their butts all day
skates !...marbles !
they bust their butts all day...they bust their butts all day
games !...furbys !
they bust their butts all day...they bust their butts all day

a strike is threat'nin'
by...merry tribes today
santa's...santa's helpers
oh...they might just walk away

yeah, children...its just a day away
its just a day away...its just a day away
its just a day away...its just a day away
it is the yule...season
its just a day away...its just a day away
its just a day away...its just a day away
its just a day away...its just a day away

One of my favorite OSs, you did it justice. I liked the timeline progression, and it's a funny idea that Christmas could be called because of striking elves - lol. 555

Santa's helpers are known as subordinate clauses not elves Red Ant. Good one Alvin
