Twelve FTE Days of Christmas

Here you go boys and girls. Well, GB Sisson inspired me with the Favorite Things lyrics. All the entries were great and I knew I couldn't compete with all the excellent lyrics. So since it is the Christmas season I thought I would do a Christmas song. I thought about for a few days and got down to work on it tonight. Here it is. I tried to keep it Ford Truck related and the rhymes close to the original... I hope you enjoy it and feel free to add your own versions!

Since you don't have a 53-56 truck I guess you don't buy from Mid-Fifty. When you get a part shipment from them they include a Tootsie Roll for free!

But I was born in '53. When I was 53, I bought this '53 f350. Unfortunately a few years later the recession hit, and hit hard in the building industry. I sold it to keep the farm, and my ***. I'll have another '53 one day, but my wife was born in '57 and I'd like to buy her something from '57 when she turns 57 in just over a year. Anybody got a cheap t-bird. haha.

Oh yes, I forgot you had that neat 53 F350 Express. My wife was born in 1957 too. And she would like to have a 57 Third with the port hole windows.
