Have a holly jolly Christmas
It's the best time of the year
Well...I don't know if there'll be snow
But have a cup of cheer

The saloon was filled with raised voices from it being packed wall to wall,
Ezra working the bar as Inez served the drinks and bottles that out were called.
Miss Teri sitting in the middle of the seven's table with Vin and Chris,
Eating the cashews that was a present from Nettie in complete bliss.

Have a holly jolly Christmas
And when you walk down the street
Say hello to friends you know
And everyone you meet

The three at the table looking up as the saloon doors swung in,
Seeing four of their band returning from dropping off thieves that had sinned.
Weaving through the sea of bodies to there friends they greeted and sat,
With one of them grinning as they pulled something out, saying 'a sure thing I bet'.

Ho ho the mistletoe
Hung where you can see
Somebody waits for you
Kiss her once for me

Inez making her way to their table bringing a tray she sets on the table with a bow,
Buck stood holding up the mistletoe high above her, 'darlin a kiss I get now'.
She smiles and says 'alright señor, but you must close your eyes',
Obeying instantly with lids closed and lips puckering with excitement.
Moments later felt a touch, a brush across his cheek eyes opening to see his kiss,
Instead of Inez, he finds he's face to face with her holding up Miss Teri for his bliss.

Have a holly jolly Christmas
And in case you didn't hear
Oh, by golly
Have a holly jolly Christmas
This year

"Oh what the Hell" he grinned and a peck on her cheek he gave,
Inez smiling at his kindness and care she, too, on his cheek gave.
But it was interrupted as a furry Lady took exception to sharing,
"Mr. Wilmington, keep your animal magnetism away from Miss Teri," appearing Ezra dared.
