Charlie does the moonwalk
While Lester checks the gifts
Bartholomew is wondering
What’s in the box he lifts

Seems Charlie doesn’t care much
About the presents left to wrap
He’d much rather dance around
Donned, in his stocking cap

Bart leans on his buddy
For a moment, does he pause
Where did Lester get the box?
Did he steal from Santa Claus?

It seems a shame to tattle
So he makes a deal with Les
“Give me the box, I’ll be quiet
So you won’t have to confess.”

Lester takes a moment
Then decides to take the chance
Grabs hold of Charlie’s pompom
And follows in the dance

Bart can see he’s defeated
Might as well join in the fun
Best to keep his secret
And now my tale is done
