THE CINNAMON BEAR


Fictitious Paddy O'Cinnamon
Helped to find the Christmas star,

All the kids were listening
On radio - near and far,

Back in the forties, we got so excited,
Listening day after day,

"They've got to find that star," we whimpered,
Keep the Crazy Quilt Dragon away,

How little I remember, I guess
Will show my age for sure,

I know they found that star by Christmas,
Imagined by innocents pure.
