Merry Christmas Little Daddy Sherwood

Rocky Mountains, Colorado                          Dateline 16 December 2019

 

In an old mining town

High in the Rockies

Lives the legend of Little Daddy Sherwood

An old abandoned Snowman, once loved by all

 

Little Daddy Sherwood, old and forgotten

He’s lost, sad and downtrodden

 

When the mining town thrived

Little Daddy Sherwood was the talk of the town

Always affable & joyful

His rival Frosty was nothing more than a fraudulent clown

 

Little Daddy Sherwood, old and forgotten

He’s lost, sad and downtrodden

 

As the gold dried up

The people started to leave

Little Dady Sherwood was dismayed and confused

In the end LDS  was emotionally bereaved

 

Little Daddy Sherwood, old and forgotten

He’s lost, sad and downtrodden

 

No happy ending

LDS is not a Christmas Hallmark movie

Little Daddy Sherwood’s spirit is lonely

As the people believe he’s no longer groovy

 

Little Daddy Sherwood, old and forgotten

He’s lost, sad and downtrodden

 

One hundred years since LDS has seen people

Just birds, goats and lots of sheeple

Until he saw Dave on the side of the hill

Little Daddy Sherwood got quite the thrill

 

Little Daddy Sherwood, old and forgotten

He’s lost, sad and downtrodden

 

Dave saw LDS and thought What The Phuck

My mind is playing tricks or

It is Little Daddy Sherwood as Grandpa used to say

He’s real, he’s tall and its my lucky day

 

Little Daddy Sherwood, old and forgotten

He’s lost, sad and downtrodden

 

Little Daddy Sherwood and Dave are fast Pals

Singing Christmas Carols and drinking hot whiskey

Unlike Frosty, LDS never melts

Its been 100 years and now he’s frisky

 

Little Daddy Sherwood, old and forgotten

Now he’s found, happy and contented

 

This is where our Christmas song ends

LDS and Dave are best of friends
