1. Christmas is coming
The candles on the tree
Won't you please hang a stocking
for ol Saint Nick to see
If you haven't got a stocking
A little sock will do
If you haven't got a little sock
Then God bless you!

2. Christmas is coming
the egg is in the nog
Won't you please let me come sit 'round
the old Yule log
If you'd rather I did not sit down
To stand around will do
If you'd rather I did not stand 'round
Then God bless you!

Christmas time is drawing near
The candles on the tree
Won't you please save a turkey leg
For poor ol' me
If you haven't got a turkey leg
A turkey wing will do
If you haven't got a turkey wing
Then God bless you!

3. Christmas is coming,
How joyful it will be,
The family will gather 'round the Christmas tree,
With silver tinsel, shining bright,
The room is all aglow.
There's a kiss for you and me
Beneath the mistletoe.
