To the first of December we cheers,
But before you get on the beers.

We’ve got something for you,
It’s brand spankin’ new.

To put it mildly,
We don’t take road safety lightly,
This Christmas, (please) spend it wisely.

We’ve created a helping hand,
We promise it’s not bland.

It’s the Smartest Advent Calendar, g’day!
Here to make (and save) your day.

25 days of joy for the holiday season,
To help spread good reason.

For a meaningful Christmas,
On and off the road,
Travellin’ safely to our abode.
