Daddy said that I might tell you,
Just what he told to me.
But he said I must be careful
Just as careful as could be.
First of all he called him Santa,
Said he's jolly round and fat
Wears a bright red leather waistcoat,
And a big white fuzzy hat.
And Daddy said that he could tell
If all the long year through,
You have been a good or naughty child
Or faithful, kind and true.
Found in "Elizabeth and her German Garden" by Countess Elizabeth Von Arnim Russell. Published by Macmillan, 1900.
