In the house upon the hill
Hanging on the window sill
Was a little Christmas stocking with a hole in the toe
And when Santa came to call
At the house upon the hill
He saw the Christmas stocking hanging in the candle glow.
Santa chuckled to himself
As he walked across the floor
To the little Christmas stocking with a hole in the toe
And he saw a note was pinned
The the place where it was torn
He read the note
then turned his head
so teardrops would not show
The note said, "Santa I am just a little boy
And I have everything that could bring me yuletide joy
When you fill my stocking, if it should overflow
I won't mind if something pushes through the hole in the toe."
Santa went back to his sled
And he loaded up his pack
Then he went back down the chimney and his heart was oh so glad
And he filled the stocking until no more he could pack
'Cause the note said, "Please, dear Santa
Could you make the gifts for mom & dad?"
