Children from Writers Room performed an original song ‘Dear Santa’ at the Winstanley Extravaganza in Saffron Walden Town square on Friday 1st Dec 2023.
Please let me see a Puffin dance
And teach my Dog to chat
Teach my teddy to do my chores
Turn my pig into an acro-bat
Santa I have been good all year
Wasn’t naughty and I did not steal
Now, Keep your side of the deal
I’m Singing this song for Santa
I promise I’ll behave
Singing this song for Santa
To have the best ever Christmas day
Teach my mum some cool street slang
Let my Parrot play the violin
Let my Dad join a famous boy band
And my Gerbil play the Mandolin
Dear Santa I’ve been really good this year, well most of the time.
I did trap my sister in the attic, and I did spill juice on my mum’s hallway rug
And I also added salt to my dad’s tea,
and I may have shot my teacher with a pen gun,
and I kicked a football through my neighbour’s window,
But I’ve been good and I’ll be better next year, I promise,
Thank you Santa.
Ps. Please swap Fred the schoool bully’s present for a pretty, pretty pink Barbie Doll
Here’s the video of Three Little Birds dedicated to our Writers Room tutor, Alice. With the middle eight poem written and performed by Lily Thomas
Happiness spreads as you smile
Hope has been happening for a very long while
Give someone a hug
It may give them luck
We have to be kind
It comes back to you, you may find
And some superb poems performed on the night.
