Dear Santa

Written By: Jeff Pedigo

I’ve been working as a Santa for thirteen years at Macy’s
We see hundreds of kids a day, you know it gets kind of crazy
Last night I came home and found a note tucked in my coat
From a little girl named Joy, and here’s what she wrote

Dear Santa, I hope you get my letter this year
Writing from a shelter feels kind of weird
My parents started fighting, I got really scared
So I called 9-1-1 and they brought me here

Santa I’m sorry to write you like this
I hope you can read through my tears
I’m going to send you a new kind of list
Things I don’t want this year
Things I don’t want this year

I tried to be a good girl, I promise I tried
But I spilled chocolate milk and started that fight
When Daddy hit mommy, she cried out my name
Can’t help but thinking I am to blame

No Barbie, no make-up, no easy-bake oven
I hope you can read through my tears
No pushing, shoving, no punching and cussing
Things I don’t want this year
Things I don’t want this year

Just when I thought it couldn’t get any sadder
Here’s what she wrote in the rest of the letter

When you go to heaven, Santa, to give the angels their gifts
Will you please give Mommy and Jesus my Kisses?

But No Barbie, no make-up, no easy-bake oven
I hope you can read through my tears
No pushing, shoving, no punching and cussing
Things I don’t want this year
Things I don’t want this year
Please, no more this year

Jaded Lady

Written By: Jeff Pedigo

You were so innocent
Always happy and content
You welcomed strangers to your home
Giving them hope they’ve never known

Some of them have gone astray
Now your trust has been betrayed
And the skyline’s not the same
I’m not sure just who to blame

Jaded lady hold your light up high
Let it guide me through the night
Jaded lady for you I’ll stand and fight
For liberty and life
And when the world is free I’ll return to see
You – Miss Liberty my jaded lady

As I go off to war for you
Your silhouette slips from view
And your truth’s I will defend
Till I come home to you again

Jaded lady hold your light up high
Let it guide me through the night
Jaded lady for you I’ll stand and fight
For liberty and life
And when the world is free I’ll return to see
You – Miss Liberty my jaded lady

You lift your hand, Your warning is clear
You weren’t raised to live in fear

Jaded lady hold your light up high
Let it guide me through the night
Jaded lady for you I’ll stand and fight
For liberty and life
And when the world is free I’ll return to see
You – Miss Liberty my jaded lady

I’ll come back to you, my red, white and blue
And green -- my jaded lady
