He's eagerly watching the postman draw near.
He's eagerly listening and what did he hear?
It's a small parcel softly that's dropped in the hall -
Oh, but eagerly opening was the best thing of all!
He's now eagerly pulling the contents from box
And now eagerly fingers grab new football socks.
They are warm on the legs and, with famous brand name,
It's for certain they’ll help win that next football game.
