Humor: Wrap Your Gift
Words: Said to have appeared in MADô Magazine, 1970s.

Wrap your gift with fingers agile, Fa la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la.
Seal it up and mark it "fragile", Fa la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la.
There's no reason to feel nervous, Fa la-la, la-la-la, la-la-la.
You can trust the Postal Service, Fa la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la.

Hear the postal workers singing, Fa la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la.
As your parcel he is flinging, Fa la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la.
See it crumble in the bin there, Fa la-la, la-la-la, la-la-la.
Aren't you sorry you walked in there? Fa la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la.

See your parcel speed to Phllly, Fa la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la.
Through the air to Cousin Billy, Fa la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la.
It will wind up in Savannah, Fa la-la, la-la-la, la-la-la.
Via Nome and Butte, Montana, Fa la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la.
