When the children have been good
That is let it be understood
Good at mealtimes good at play
Good all night and all of the day

They shall have the pretty things
Merry Christmas always brings
But naughty romping girls and boys
Who tear their clothes and make a noise

Who spoil their pinafores and their frocks
They deserve no Christmas box
Such as these shall never look
At this pretty picture book

Yes such as these shall never look
At this pretty picture book
