‘Twas the night before Christmas and all across East County
Not a creature was stirring, from Borrego to El Monte.
Cowboy boots were hung by chimneys with care
In hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there.
From Barona to Ramona, Jacumba to Jamul
East County residents celebrating the Yule
Have taken time from gift wraps and home-cooked dishes
To send Santa their heartfelt holiday wishes.
