Transcript for Stars Recite 'Twas the Night Before Christmas' for 'GMA'
Now for a special reading of "t'was the night before christmas." We rounded up an all-star cast. ♪ t'was the night before house. Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse. Because I have a cat right here. The stockings were hung by the chimney with care, in hopes at the st. Nicholas soon would be there. And mama in her kerchief and I in my cap had just settled down for a long winter's nap. When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter. I sprang from the bed to see what was the matter. Away to the window I flew like a flash. Tore open the shutters and threw open the sash. With a little old driver so lively and quick. I knew in a moment it must be st. Nik. More rapid than eagles, his coursers they came, and he whistled and shouted and called them by name. What did he call them? Johnny. Fred. Oh, I like fred. . To the top of the porch to the top of the wall. Now dash away, dash away, dash away all. So up to the house tops the coursers they flew with a sleigh full of toys, oh, and st. Nicholas, too. And then in a twinge ling, i heard on the roof. The prancing and pawing of each little hoof. His clothes were all tarnishes with tinsel and soot. He looked like a peddler just opening his sack. His dimples how merry, his cheeks were like roses his nose like a cherry. His droll little mouth. The stump of a pipe he held tight in his teeth and the smoke encircled his head like a wreath. He had a broad face and a little round belly that shook when he laughed like a bowl full of jelly. He was chubby and plump and i lafed when I saw him in spite of myself. A wink of his eye and a twist of his head gave me to know that i had nothing to dread. He went straight to work and under the with a jerk. And laying his finger aside of his nose and giving a nod, up the chimney he rose. He sprang to his sleigh, to his team gave a whistle. And away they all flew like the down of a thistle. But I heard him exclaim as he drove out of sight. Merry christmas -- merry christmas. Merry christmas. Merry christmas. Merry christmas to all and to all a good night. And to all a good day.
