T'was the night before Christmas, all hands was in bed

Enough noise goin' on to wake up the dead

Long stockings and vamps were nailed to the wall

With girt four-inch nails so ne'er one would fall.

The youngsters wuz jumping up and down on the bed

T'inkin' 'bout the presents he hid in the shed

Mudder in the kitchen was washin' her hair

And I was sot down wit' a glass full of cheer.

When out in the yard I heard such a noise

I said "Put on the soup-dat must be the boys."

Away to the window I started to race

Tripped over the two kittens and fell on me face.

The moon and the stars shined down on the snow

It's s'pose to be that way, 'tis Christmas you know

When what to me bloodshot eyes should appear

But a queer lookin' Santa 'nar reindeer.

Long rubbers, red suit, and a beard on his jaws

I said to the missus, that's not Sanny Claus

When I opened the door to see what was the matter

I seen 'im climb on the porch wit' me ladder.

Now the roof of the house was covered with snow

But he sang and he danced and he bawled out "HO, HO"

He tripped up in the chimney when I looked around

I saw him and the chimney squat up on the ground.

He was soot and snow from his head to his feet

But he started to come 'round when he got in the heat

He walked in wit' me chimney and sot on a chair

And the youngsters started screechin', "Santa is here!"

There was icicles hangin' from eyebrows and nose

So he sot by the stove cause his face was half froze,

He took off his boots to warm up his feet

While mudder was fixin' him somethin' to eat

With a wink of his eyes and a nod of his head

He ate t'ree bowls of soup and six slices of bread

He spoke not a word 'till he finished his scoff

Said t'anks to the missus, now I gotta take off.

With the side of his finger he wiped off his nose

And asked for a face clot to clean off his clothes,

Sorry 'bout the chimney he said with a laugh

When I fell down on top of 'em, I broke 'en in half.

He left in a hurry as quick as he came

We never got the chance to ask him his name

But I heard 'en bawl out as he put on his boot

"Merry Christmas to all and t'anks for the soup!".
