I thought she planned to play with me
When I saw she had a ball,
But she attached it to my collar
(Which made no sense at all).
When I saw the thing she called tinsel,
I once more thought we'd play,
But it turned out she had other things
Planned for me that day.
She attached that to my collar too,
Then she tied it in a bow.
She said I looked real festive,
But I just don't know...
I thought I looked a little silly,
And the degu said I was right,
While the chinchillas squealed with laughter,
And said I'd made their night.
I've heard it said this time of year
Many humans decorate a tree.
Well I guess she got a bit confused,
Because she decorated me.
Though, if I’m being really honest,
I thought it was kind of fun.
My favourite part though was the treat
I got when she was done.
