Cheers For The New Year



We cheer for the New Year at twelve a.m.
Twirling noise makers and blowing ticklers
And make resolutions we plan to engram.
.
And party away wearing silly tams
Singing Auld Lang Syne with our sweethearts
And cheer for the New Year at twelve a.m.

Conscious boasts, though we know it’s a sham
The mind is strong, but the body is weaker
And make resolutions we plan to engram.

And swing to music played by the band
Stepping on toes amid dance capers
And cheer for the New Year at twelve a.m.

While overindulging in hams and drams,
And tell ourselves we will change later
And make resolutions we plan to engram.

Company abounds chattering flimflam
Sitting around the table sharing laughter,
We cheer for the New Year at twelve a.m.
And make resolutions we plan to engram.
