Rich dark chocolate, freshly brewed
                                                 Sure puts me in the Christmas mood!        C
                                                 Peppermint stick and cinnamon spice              O
                                                   oft adds flavor to my Christmas vice.              C
                                                     Best savored in a fancy china cup            O
                                                        I thank the Lord and sip it up           A 
                                                                Giving cold whipped
                                                                 Cream a final twirl, 
                                                     This ole’ woman becomes a girl!
