Nutcracker Story (to the tune of Winter Wonderland)
Family and friends, gather together,
All came, despite the weather.
The guests toast,
Stahlbaum, the host.
Sugar Plums dance around the tree.

Soon arrives, Drosselmeyer,
Drops his gifts by the fire,
Something for everyone,
His visits are fun,
Sugar Plums dance around the tree.

Clara gets a gift that makes her smile,
A nutcracker that stands so tall,

Beneath the tree, she sleeps
For a while,
Then wakes and realizes,
She's now small.

Now it's midnight in the house,
Soon arrives King Mouse,
His army is all here,
Clara shakes with fear,
Sugar Plums dance around the tree.

Nutcracker now awakens,
A battle he'll be making,
A very strange site,
In the house tonight,
Sugar Plums dance around the tree.

Nutcracker is surrounded,
From mouse army he is pounded,
Clara's filled with dread,
Throws a slipper at King's head.
Sugar Plums dance around the tree.

Mouse King drops to the floor,
A prince Nutcracker becomes,
King won't be fighting anymore,
Now can be heard the sound of drums.

They travel next to Land of Snow
Where the enchanted forest grows,
Snowflakes surround, them on the ground.
Sugar Plums dance around the tree.

In the Land of Sweets, they finally get to meet,
Sugar Plum Fairy 'round the tree.

When Clara awakes, she quickly takes,
Nutcracker and dances 'round the tree.
