‘Twas Saturday after Thanksgiving


‘Twas Saturday after Thanksgiving and all through the shop,
Our Elves were quite busy and working non-stop.
Red Quackers were hung round our necks with care,
Knowing that Holiday Duck Tours soon would be there.

While the office pups were nestled all snug in their beds,
Visions of synchronized dance moves played in our heads.
Our GM in her kerchief and our Captains in their caps
Were all full of energy and no one took naps.


And then out on the roads, there arose such a clatter,
I sprang from my desk to see what was the matter.
Away to the kiosk I flew like a flash,
Turned on the computer and threw up the sash.

The Macy’s star shown brightly on Seattle’s downtown,

And gave the lustre of mid-day to those bustling around.
Then what to my wondering eyes should appear,
Right next to Starbucks: six Duck mobiles!

At each helm was a Captain, such lively lads,
I knew in a moment, there was fun to be had!
More rapid than eagles the Ducks how they came,
And they danced and they boogied,  I called the Captains by name!

“Now Watson D’ Boxx and Captain Snow Dayshush!

Oh, Phillipe Navidad ! Oh, Yukon Cornelius!
Oh, Captain Redd Sledd and Captain Gregg Nogg!
Oh, Captain Kris Krinkle and Santana Claus!”
On a sleigh ride on wheels, you’ll tour through town
See holiday shoppers and all the deals that they’ve found!
There’s lights and decor on the Seattle streets
And impressive window displays for your eyes to meet!
Sing holiday songs! Laugh at holiday banter!
See the holiday sights! Oh, you get the picture!
This land-only tour departs nightly from Westlake,
It’s wacky, it’s cool, it’s more fun than fruitcake!
Onboard with your blanket, you’ll see decorations
Lights, garland, ornaments, for all celebrations
Plus holiday music to get even Scrooge in the spirit,
Clap-a-long, sing-a-long or even just cheer it!

Wow, here comes your Captain, decked out in holiday fare
We’ll tour north to the Needle and south to Pioneer Square!
You’ll see Downtown Seattle and get into the spirit,
Learn about holiday events, see the lights and get near it!

Winterfest, how it twinkles! The ice rink, how merry!
Nordstrom Santa so happy, his nose like a cherry!
Christmas Ships with a choir, the Carousel with a bow,
Pacific Place is a shopping hotspot with real falling snow!

Gingerbread Village at the Sheraton with its delicious designs

Festival of Trees with decorations of all different kinds!
The Nutcracker plays nightly at beautiful McCaw Hall
And at the 5th Ave, you can see Elf the Musical!
So grab a red Quacker and a cup of hot chocolate
Find our Duck-shaped kiosk, it’s not hard to spot it!
Buy tickets soon, we’ll fill up the Ducks,
 Adults are fifteen and kids just five bucks!

Get on a Holiday Duck before we give our team a whistle,
And away they all fly like the down of a thistle.
You have until December 30 before we drive out of sight,
Singing “Happy Holidays to all, and to all a good-night!”
