She said there was no Santa
And I, of course, agreed.
But when she questioned Rudolph,
Well, I just had to take the lead.
Susan was my neighbor
And the best friend I could hate.
Her blonde hair and pale blue eyes
Sealed our friendship and our fate.
She talked to me of presents
Appearing underneath our tree
That conveniently still carried
Codes and tags from J.C.Penny
But when she got to reindeer
I just had to draw the line.
Mom had taken me to see them
And Rudolph’s nose was looking fine.
I’d rubbed his ears with mittened hand
That I slid between the wires.
And we sang Christmas carols
At the mall with the big bonfire.
So when Susan called me “Liar”
I curled my fingers in a ball,
Standing tall and reaching higher
I punched and watched her fall.
Don’t tell me there’s no reindeer
This is one fight I’m not losing.
Cause one day in my seventh year
I made a black-eyed Susan!
