“Come on, Bo, you wanna sit, oh oh”
“This, this is exactly what he does at home.”
“He tries to beat Malia and Sasha to my lap.”
“This is one of my favorite things to do, is coming to The Children’s hospital coming to see all of you.”
“And I wanna thank my escorts, Jordan and A.J., you guys are awesome, you did a fabulous job escorting me here, I made it. Well done.”
“And of course we have Santa Claus who is really the star of the show.”
“And there’s Bo, who is the big baby in the room.”
“So, I’m gonna read a Christmas favorite: ‘Twas The Night Before Christmas”. How many people have heard this? Alright, this is the story when Santa comes to visit.”
Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
In hopes that St Nicholas soon would be there.
The children were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of sugar-plums danced in their heads.
(First Lady: How many people are gonna go to sleep on time, when it’s Christmas Eve?”
(Boy: I know)
(First Lady: So you know Santa doesn’t come unless you go to sleep. Right! You gotta be fast asleep. You gotta be nestled all snug in their bed. Alright we got that?)
And mamma in her ‘kerchief (her hat), and I in my cap,
Had just settled down for a long winter’s nap.
(First Lady: Does everybody know what they want for Christmas?)
(Background: Um huh.)
(First Lady: Yes)
(First Lady: You’re not gonna ask for a lot of stuff are you?)
(Boy: Me too – I’m gonna ask —)
(First Lady: You’re gonna ask for a lot of stuff?)
(First Lady: Just a few things.)
When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter,
I sprang to the bed to see what was the matter.
Away to the window I flew like a flash,
Tore open the shutters and threw up the sash.
(First Lady: What do you think he heard?)
(Background: Santa and his reindeer!)
(First Lady: (inaudible) You know this story.)
(Background: I think I do.)
The moon on the breast of the new-fallen snow
Gave the lustre of mid-day to objects below.
When, what to my wondering eyes should appear,
But a miniature sleigh, and eight tinny reindeer.
(First Lady: See them by the moonlight? This is what happens on Christmas when you’re asleep. Santa shows up.)
With a little old driver, so lively and quick,
I knew in a moment it must be St. Nick.
(First Lady: It is Santa Claus, you were absolutely correct!)
More rapid than eagles his coursers they came,
And he whistled, and shouted, and called them by name!
(First Lady: Do you know the names of the reindeers?)
(Boy: Now Dasher!)
Now Dasher! now, Dancer! Now, Prancer and Vixen!
On, Comet! On, Cupid! on, on Donner and Blitzen!
(First Lady: You see Bo? Alright.)
(Boy: Maybe he can see?)
(First Lady: Lets see – lets see. Alright, I think he’s [Bo] seen them.)
(First Lady: Oh, here’s a close up picture of the reindeers! Alright!)
To the top of the porch! To the top of the wall!
Now dash away! Dash away! Dash away all!”
As dry leaves that before the wild hurricane fly,
(First Lady: That’s poetry!)
When they meet with an obstacle, mount to the sky.
So up to the house-top the coursers they flew,
With the sleigh full of Toys, and St Nicholas too.
(First Lady: He’s right there – oh – this – you know – we’re talk – he knows the end of this story. He knows the end of this story.)
And then, in a twinkling, I heard on the roof
The prancing and pawing of each little hoof.
As I drew in my head, and was turning around,
Down the chimney St Nicholas came with a bound.
(First Lady: Why do you think it was a bound? Cause St. Nick is a – is a little hefty.)
(First Lady: He – he – jolly – exactly!)
He was dressed all in fur, from his head to his foot,
And his clothes were all tarnished with ashes and soot.
(First Lady: Why do you think his clothes were dirty? Down the chimney, that’s it. That’s why today he’s very clean.)
A bundle of Toys he had flung on his back,
And he looked like a peddler, just opening his pack.
His eyes-how they twinkled! His dimples how merry!
His cheeks were like roses, his nose like a cherry!
His droll little mouth was drawn up like a bow,
And the beard of his chin was as white as the snow.
The stump of a pipe he held tight in his teeth,
And the smoke it encircled his head like a wreath.
He had a broad face and a little round belly,
That shook when he laughed, like a bowlful of jelly!
He was chubby and plump, a right jolly old elf,
And I laughed when he – when I saw him, in spite of myself!
A wink of his eye and a twist of his head,
Soon gave me to know I had nothing to dread.
(First Lady: Cause Santa is friendly, he’s bringing toys.)
He spoke not a word, but went straight to his work,
And filled all the stockings, then turned with a jerk.
And laying his finger aside of his nose,
And giving a nod, up the chimney he rose!
(First Lady: Look at him going right back up the chimney. How do you think he does it?)
(First Lady: It’s magic.)
(Boy: He’s alive.)
(First Lady: And climbing. It’s a good core.)
(Boy: I like Santa — )
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,
“Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good-night!”
(First Lady: The End. Yeah!)
