Twas two days after Christmas and I’m tearing the house apart
Looking for my receipt, to return a gift to the local Wal-Mart
I thought it was in my pants pocket or may be my purse
Lord please help me find it, I need a blessing not a curse!
Okay I go into the room and I’m looking on the bed
Nope it’s not there, just Chuck laying there with the covers over his head
He’s lying there so content and so sweet
I just want to scream at him, man where’s my receipt?
When all of a sudden I thought came to my mind
That receipt is hiding from me I can’t see it I must be blind
I tore up my dresser like a mad woman on drugs
I even moved the night stand and looked under the rug
Away to the kitchen I flew like a flash
I emptied the drawers, the cabinets and the trash
I looked on the floor
And I opened the door
Looked up in the tree and saw a squirrel eating a treat
Mr. Squirrel do you know where I put my receipt?
Now I’m crazy I’m talking to a squirrel
So I shake my head and quickly turn with a twirl
I go back in the house to finish my find
Lord help me find this receipt before I lose my mind!!!
Now Ree Ree, now Berlon and now Piggie, y’all come help me shake every bed sheet
I mean quick and immediately, help me find my receipt!!
Now Chuck wakes up and says hey woman you need to calm down!!
You screaming and fussing and acting like a clown.
Well, I’m sorry that I’m acting a fool
I really have been trying to keep my cool
I’m tired and frustrated and kind of dismayed
Chuck looks at me and said Robin did you pray?
I hung my head in shame, because I had forgotten
God was probably looking at me too, I felt so rotten
As I begin to pray and my prayer was complete
I brushed my hand across my breast
I found my receipt!!!!
Forever His Servant,
