A Christmas song from my youth. It still brings tears to my ears.

A Christmas Song

Jolly ol' Saint 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 fat old man
Whisper what you'll bring to me;
while I tell you what I can.

When the clock is striking twelve,
and I'm fast asleep
Down the chimney, you will come
with your bag, you creep
All our money you will find
Inside Daddy's desk,
the middle drawer don't lock so good,
Please don't make a mess.

Dad will be behind the door,
Ma will be in bed
Dad says if you creep in there,
he'll fill you full of lead.
I'll leave it up to you, dear man
how to sneak away
'Cause if you're found in my room again
there'll be Hell to pay.
