1. Hang up the baby's stocking,
Be sure you don't forget,
The dear little dimpled darling,
Has never see Christ yet,

But I told her all about it,
And she opened her big blue eyes,
I'm sure she understood me,
For she looked so funny and wise.

2. Dear, such a tiny stocking,
It doesn't take much 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,
For "Santa" wouldn't be looking,
For anything half so small.

3. I know what I'll do for baby,
I've tho't of the very best plan;
I'll borrow a stocking from grandma,
The longest ever I can.
And hang it by mine, dear Mamma,
Right here in the corner, so,
And write a letter to "Santa,"
And fasten it to the toe.

4. Write, this is the baby's stocking,
That hangs in the corner here.
You never have seen her, "Santa"
For she came to our house this year.
But she's just the sweetest baby,
And now before you go,
Just cram her stocking with goodies,
From the top clear down to the toe.
