Heap on the wood—and gather round,
For the merry Christmas time is
Pull close your chairs and listen now
For it is a time for fun and cheer.
Now listen while grandma tells a tale
Of dear fat old Santa’s pack,
She paints a plctiire big and clear
Of that nice old saint’s Cull sack.
She says that in the long ago
That Santa came as now—with toys.
To make the old and young happy
Especially good little girls and boys.
’Tis time to fall asleep, my dears,
Old Santa soon will come.
For then he will leave your gifts
A doll for Jane, for Tom a drum.
