    T'was The Night Before Christmas
    (Pit Bull Version)

    Twas the night before Christmas and the shelter was dark,
    The whole place was silent, not even a bark.
    The dogs were all locked in their pens for the night,
    The staff had gone home and turned out the light.

    As I lay my head down on the cold concrete floor,
    I fondly recalled the home I had before.
    The family I loved who loved me right back,
    We'd shared everything from a secret to snack.

    Things couldn't be better at this time last year,
    But that has all changed and now I am here.
    I won't see the tree, the lights or the snow,
    I'm scared and alone, my spirits are low.

    The others like me weren't put up for adoption,
    A new family and home, for us isn't an option.
    We've been locked up in cells as if we're all crooks,
    We don't deserve homes because of our looks.

    Not Diesel, or Bingo or the young one named Percy,
    Deserve to be loved nor shown any mercy.
    While families celebrate with holiday cheer,
    I know in my heart that my end is near.

    The vet will arrive, the lights will go on,
    By the time you awake, we all will be gone.
    A stranger will come and take me away,
    I'll never awake to see another day.

    As I at last close my eyes I'll shed you a tear,
    The fond memories, with you, I'll always keep near.
    The only thing I've ever asked of dear Santa Claus,
    Is to stop all these unfair and ridiculous laws.

    You said without me, your life was not full,
    So why does it matter that I'm a "pitbull"?.
    In my dream Santa shouts when he's finished his deed,
    MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL REGARDLESS OF BREED!
