Who surely would like

To please little children
wherever it´s spread.

With letters and cards,

And all of the things

To fill all our stockings right down to the toe.

full of tinsel and lights.
Surely they´re one
of our Christmas delights.
U is for Underwear,
red flannel, you know,
To keep Santa warm
from his head to his toe.

with his feet near the fire,
He wears his red flannels
till it´s time to retire.

of boys in the choir,
Singing God´s praises in festive attire.

So send a few to Santa Claus

When Santa and presents
