(Since buylnif's such a bother
When times are panicky and tough)

Will cause (to get a cheap year)
The calendar to change Its dates
And Christmas swap with leap year.

la tbe an'niNl homo, about whom It
explains so much that many are da

wheri'tiH be la wholly unaccountable
and inexplicable by blolouy, with uo

The table filled with feasten an' the

With the ttockin's crammed to bust

A. good old fashioned Chrii'maj like
we had so long ago!
Now that's the thing I'd like t see
ag'in afore I die,
But Cnris'mas in the city here it's
different, oh, my!
With the crowded hustle-'justle of
the slushy, noisy street
An' the scowl upon the faces of the
strangers that you meet.
Oh, there's buyin', plenty of it, of a
lot of gorgeous toys.
An' it takes a mint of money to
please modern girls an' boys.
Why, I mind the time a jackknife
an' a tffy lump for me
Hade my little heart an' stockin
. jnst ohock full of Chris'mas glee.
An there's feastin', Think o' feedin'
with these stuok up city folk!
Why, you have to speak in whispers,
an' you dar'sn't crack a joke.
Then remember how the tables look-
ed all crowded with your kin,
When you couldn't hear a whistle
blow across the merry din.

Then your heart it keeps a-swellin'

An by night your jaws are achin'

An' your enemy, the worst one,

Mighty little Chris'mas spirit seems
to dwell 'tween city walls,
Where each rnowflake brings a soot
