I got this new interpretation this morning via The Good, Clean Funnies List and my wife and I enjoyed a good chuckle.
Merry Christmas, All!
Do You Hear What I Hear?
Said the mother to her little child, “Do you see what I see?
Yonder in the floor, little child. Do you see what I see?
A toy, a toy, lying on the floor.
Exactly where it was lying before.
Exactly where it was lying before.”
Said the little child to her brother near, “Do you hear what I hear?
Someone spoke. Was it Mother dear? Do you hear what I hear?
A voice, a voice, talking now to me.
About toys that I did not see.
About toys that I did not see.”
Said the tattle brother to the mighty dad, “Do you know what I know?
Little sister has been very bad. Do you know what I know?
The child, the child, has been very bold.
It is now your turn to go scold.
It is now your turn to go scold.”
Said the dad to all the children there, “Listen to what I say!
I pray for peace, children in my care. Listen to what I say!
God forgives. Accept Him; He’s the light.
And with prayer, you will turn out all right.
And with prayer, you will turn out all right.”
