Duration c.5 minutes
To give you a flavour, the first (of four) verses and choruses is:-

We think we had better
Write Santa a letter
And tell him that Christmas
Is cancelled this year,
The shops barely close
And as it hardly ever snows,
Rudolph's cold is better
So there's no more red nose.
And Prancer and Dancer
Have taken up ballet,
They live by the coast
In a very nice chalet;
They're really quite neat
And they have very light feet
And watching them plie
Is really a treat!

Oh bring back, Oh bring back,
Oh bring back the spirit of Christmases past!
We hadn't much money, But the jokes are still funny,
Oh how we so wanted those good times to last!

A PACK comprises an A4 sized full score plus a complete set of parts including strings 4/4/3/4/2.
