Hang up the baby's stocking

Representative Text

1 Hang up the baby's stocking,
Be sure you don't forget,
The dear little dimpled darling,
she never saw Christmas yet;
But I've told her all about it,
and she opened her big blue eyes;
And I'm sure she understands me,
She looked so funny and wise.

Chorus:
Hand up the baby's stocking,
Be sure you don't forget,
The dear little dimpled darling,
She never saw Christmas yet.

2 Dear, what a tiny stocking1
It doesn't take mush to hold
Such little pink toes as baby's
Away from the frost and cold;
But then for the baby's Christmas
It will never do at all,
Why Santa wouldn't be looking
For anything half so small. [Chorus]

3 I know what we'll get the baby,
I've tho't on the very best plan,
I'll borrow a stocking from grandma,
The longest that ever I can;
And you'll hand it by mine, dear mother,
Right here in the corner so-
And write a letter to Santa,
And fasten it on to the toe. [Chorus]

4 Write, "This is the baby's stocking,
That hands in the corner here,
You never have seen her, Santa,
For she only came this year;
But she's just the blessedest baby,
And now before you go,
Just cram her sock with goodies,
From the top clean down to the toe." [Chorus]
