A Christman Card from Santa

I'm sending this card to tell you
That taxes have taken away
The things that I really needed --
My workshop, my reindeer, my sleigh, Now I'm making my rounds on a jackass,
He's old, he's crippled, he's slow,
So you'll know if I don't see you at Xmas,
It's cause I'm out on my ass in the snow.
 
                                                  I received the following from DeFrancesR
                                                            who tells me it is the original version of this piece,
                                                         written by Jan Clark and/or one of her sorority
                                         sisters over 15 years ago.  See below:
 
 
 
 
 
 I write this letter to tell you
High taxes have taken away
The things I really cherish:
My workshop, my reindeer, my sleigh. I'm forced to ride a donkey
Who's old and crippled and slow.
So, if I don't see you at Christmas time,
I'm out on my ass in the snow. Today, December 9, 2002, I received the following from Dick Crozier who writes:
I was amazed to see that some young lady claimed either she or a "room mate" wrote the original about 15 years ago. I know that Dad didn't write it, but it had been around for many years before that. Therefore I am firmly
convinced that this claim is untrue. His version (below) is from about 1960.


I just wrote this note to inform you
That taxes have taken away
The things I have found most essential
My reindeer, my workshop, my sleigh

So I got me a donkey for Christmas
He's old, crippled, and slow
So if you don't see me on Christmas
I'm out on my ass in the snow.
  So, whose version is the correct, original one?  I don't know and so offer all three.
Enjoy them all and have a Merry Christmas.  WFS
