Get ready to moan, Timmons' rhymes will make you groan
Twas the night before Christmas amid all the pucker,
The agents were abuzz at F.C. Tucker
There was Peggy and Jennifer and no one was bleak
If a house is in your future then please speak to Deak
The cars were lined up without any cares
With Courtney and Monica and the gang out at Hares
Kevin's at Kahlo and Andy's at Mohr
Done with car shopping? There's politicians galore.
From Richardson to Kenley to Ditslear and Dillinger
They work hard for us all, every him, every her.
Need a TV, a stereo an ipod - don't beg.
Just pile in the car and drive to (HH) Gregg
Salt and road mess were stuck on some cars
So Renners and New Life buffed 'em like stars
Sales were outstanding at Flooring from Kinsey
And jewelry was shining at Smith's all a glitzy
From those who were hungry the food was real handy,
So let's go to Pizza King and of course to Jim Dandy
We can't forget Eddie's & Mancino's great sub
And when we're all stuffed there's Noblesville Athletic Club.
Later that night, we looked in the sky
And there was the fat man all bundled and spry
On Farmer's, on Harris, on Community banks
On Gatewood's and Chaudion and Co-Op with your tanks.
On Purkey's, on Riverwalk, on Westfield Pharmacy
On Roudebush and Moser with diamonds, spark-a-lee.
(Sorry, had to force that rhyme there!)
We can't forget Peggy of Corner Cottage fame
Or Jim with his Signs and bushy head frame
Gary's got the golf course so lively and quick
And Pat holds down Riverview in case you get sick
There's Westport and Precision and Kristi's Designs
Call Scott for your plumbing and avoid any lines.
Hamilton Memorial Park gets our respect
So do Randall and Roberts, our loved ones they get
Sheridan has Bud, his state titles and more
While Cicero has their Huskies banging on the door
It's nice to shop here and ready get set
The Times is the paper you should never forget
As the fat man rode off I heard him exclaim
Merry Christmas Hamilton County, you're the best I can name!
