“Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree!”
The most exciting day on Earth
Was when our attic would give birth
Sometime around Mid-December
The magic sparked, as I remember
When Dad would climb in to the loft
At our house on Bramble Croft
And maneuver out, till it was free
Our plastic, 70's Christmas tree
People tell you and proclaim
"Plastic trees are not the same!"
"That real trees smell of fresh cut pine"
Well yes they do and that's all fine!
Back to my story, more to tell
For me, there's nothing like that smell
See back then, our tree-lights were not
Like those today..........they got hot!
And as they glowed, a gorgeous sight
The tree would melt on to the lights
Fusing tree, tinsel was next
The Angel watching quite perplexed
With plastic trees no needles fell
Yet, indeed, they had a smell
It was not fresh and was not pine
But to me, it smelled divine
There's nothing that's more "Christmassy"
I love the smell of melted tree
So you can keep your firs and pine
This wonderful Christmas memory's mine!
