Busta: It was the night before Kris-mass and just when you thought everything was sweet, we had to re-route the wiring in the crib to steal the next
door neighbors’ heat
Busta: You know not a creature was stirin’, movin’ around, not a ‘roach, not a mouse you know what I mean? Stockings was hung by the biggest smoky this the crib which is known as the chimney
[Background music] In hopes that you know st. Busta-bust would soon be here, you know, the children was pretty much all bundled up, snuggled
in their heads with visions of Busta Rhymes dancin’ around in they head so you know mama and a kerchief and any my cap had just settled down for a long winter nap ’cause I ain’t want to good to sleep she tried to put her hand slap on my little rear-end
Busta: For most part when out on the lawn there arose such a clatter
I sprang from my bed to see couple girls was in the front yard makin’ it clap doin’ the chitter chatter
Busta: Now away to the window I flew like a flash tore open the shutters and through open the sash we all know how the rest of that goes so we just gonna keep hoofin’ ’cause you know I kinda want to get to the end of the
Busta: In any event he spoke not a word but went straight to his work
and filled all the stockin’s then turned with a jerk and laying a finger aside of his nose I personally thought he was diggin’ a little critter up out of his nose
Busta: But in any event givin’ a nod up the chimney, he rose. He sprang to his sleigh of his team, gave a whistle — away they all flew like the down of a thistle but I heard him ex clain when he drove out of sight happy Christmas Busta Rhymes flip mode squad and to all a good night!
Carson: Merry Christmas Busta-bust thank you very, very much.
