Twas two weeks before Christmas And all through the town, Merchants were preparing The best holiday gifts to be found.
Ladner Village was all loaded With goodies galore, All retailers needed Were shoppers in store.
The presents were perfect All wrapped just your way, Giving reasons aplenty In town just to stay.
Shopping is so easy, Parking's no task, A long trip to the city Just uses your gas!
There are dresses & rings Gift certificates to eat, There are frames & baskets Open on Sundays After first going to church, The merchants are ready For your holiday search.
Our wish to you That your Christmas be bright, That present be perfect Our service just right
That you visit each shop Spend wisely your money, On serious items Or gifts that are funny.
But this December, Please remember YOUR OWN, Spread cheer in Ladner Village By shopping at home!
