(Lights down on the loading shed, and up on the workshop)

 

    SANTA

Belle, I'll agree that it doesn't look good right now, but you're forgetting one thing. That nothing's impossible when it comes to Christmas.

    (Singing)

THIS IS THE ONE DAY OF THE YEAR, TRULY

WHEN CERTAIN THINGS YOU'RE ONLY HALF-EXPECTING

SOMEHOW SUDDENLY APPEAR

EVEN IF YOU DON'T KNOW HOW

 

AND ON THIS ONE DAY OF THE YEAR, TRULY

IF YOU'RE FEELING LIKE THE WORLD'S AGAINST YOU

TRY TO SET ASIDE YOUR FEAR

AND THE WORLD MAY TURN AROUND

 

JUST OPEN UP YOUR EYES!

THERE'S CHRISTMAS MAGIC ALL AROUND YOU!

YOU MIGHT JUST BE SURPRISED

AT WHAT A HEART THAT HOPES CAN DO

 

(Lights come up on the loading shed, to half on the workshop. Music continues under)

 

    TINKLE (an elf)

I can't believe you would turn down a chance like this.

 

    SMASHER (a reindeer)

Listen, kid, pulling a sleigh on Christmas is a dream in every reindeer's heart. But we're never going to do it, and we've accepted that. Now is not the time to raise hopes only to have them dashed again.

 

    TINKLE

But this time it can really happen because you've got exactly what this Christmas needs.

    (Singing)

JUST OPEN UP YOUR EYES!

THERE'S CHRISTMAS MAGIC ALL AROUND YOU!

TONIGHT, THROUGH SILVER SKIES

YOUR HOPES-COME-TRUE COULD PULL US THROUGH

 

    SANTA

THERE'S ONLY ONE DAY OF THE YEAR, TRULY

 

            TINKLE

        THIS IS THE ONE DAY OF THE YEAR

 

    SANTA

ONLY ONE DAY WITH THIS KIND OF MAGIC

 

            TINKLE

        WHEN NOTHING REALLY IS IMPOSSIBLE

 

    SANTA and TINKLE

AND ON THIS ONE DAY OF THE YEAR

YOU CAN DREAM ANYTHING

WISH FOR ANYTHING

AND DON'T BE TOO SURPRISED

IF IT COMES TRUE
