      T'was the night before Christmas
      And here in Johnstown
      Revelers in The Rainbow
      Cocktails they did down

      Perry Lanes, they were silent
      Grant's store, it was dark
      I chanted to heaven
      "Please Santa, embark."

      Knox Gelatine's hill
      Had been icy that day
      And I'd flown like a Phoenix
      On my Rosebud-like sleigh

      Pilot's trucks had delivered
      FJG had switched cars
      And my sledhill was dark now
      Except for the stars

      Just then I first saw it
      Zipping up, back and forth
      A brightly lit something
      Approaching from North

      The night's peaceful silence
      Was eclipsed by a roar
      As a flying stock car
      Landed near my front door

      Saint Nick was the driver
      He was grimey with smoke
      But he looked like a racer
      As he smiled and spoke

      "My sleigh started creaking
      "Reindeer hate all strange sounds
      "So I grabbed Dave Lape's modified
      "To finish my rounds."

      "No more time for this talking
      "Show me your Christmas tree."
      And there he left presents
      For my family and me

      As quickly as it started
      It came to an end
      He fired up the big block
      And flew skyward again

      No one here believes me
      But I swear its true
      I witnessed the night
      Santa drove 22

      Four decades have passed now
      Yet I still see that sight
      To all, share my vision
      Merry Christmas, Goodnight
