Jolly Old Saint Nicholas

1. Jolly old St. Nicholas, lean your ear this way!
Don’t you tell a single soul what I’m going to say.
Christmas Eve is coming soon! Now, you dear old man.
Whisper what you’ll bring to me; Tell me if you can.

2. When the clock is striking twelve. When I’m fast asleep,
Down the chimney broad and black, with your pack you’ll creep.
All the stockings you will see hanging in a row;
Mine will be the shortest ones – you’ll be sure to know.

3. Johnny wants a pair of skates, Susy wants a dolly,
Nelly wants a story book – she thinks dolls a folly.
As for me, my little brain never was the wisest.
Choose for me, old Santa Claus, what you think is nicest.
