First Line: Yesterday I tore some lace-stuck my finger through it
Last Line: Not to blame this child, because his are n't any better!
Subject(s): Children; Christmas; Santa Claus; Childhood; Nativity, The; Nicholas, Saint


Yesterday I tore some lace—stuck my finger through it;
Day before I made a face—no one saw me do it.
Once I splattered with the ink—got my dress all spotted,
And there's other things I think that I have forgotted.
Do you s'pose HE came last night? I was always taught he
Would n't bring a single mite to a child that's naughty!
But I guess if Santy's house has some children in it,
They're not quiet as a mouse every single minute.
And I guess that Mrs. Claus told him, if he let her,
Not to blame this child, because his are n't any better!
