Away! Be gone!" Poor Darcy sparked, "No harm I meant", but from the village, he was sent and woe is me and oh lament, no presents for his friends Darcy was sad as he sat at the edge of the forest by and by No gifts would he have to offer his friends, a tear rolled from his eye A storm did gather and soon did hit t'was a mighty wind that blew And Christmas snow did whirl and blow and he wondered what to do? As Darcy let out with a dragon's cry he opened his mouth so wide that the wind and snow went right down his throat and put out the fire inside When Darcy realized the fire was out, first a whisper, then a shout and a laugh to know that he could speak without starting another fire But now it was late on the Christmas Eve he was up and off with a roar He raced to the village and he cried out, "My fire, he am no more!" From shop to shop he then did go in each he made his choice Darcy was treated so kindly now, no need to fear his voice The villagers came to the edge of town and Darcy waved goodbye "Come back again if ever you can!" they said and he said that he'd try "Merry Christmas!" all did say as to the woods he made his way "Tomorrow will be Christmas Day and a Merry Christmas to thee!"
