Excerpt

When the children have been good,
That is, be it understood,
Good at meal-times, good at play,
Good all night and good all day--
They shall have the pretty things

Tear their clothes and make a noise,
Spoil their pinafores and frocks,
And deserve no Christmas-box.
Such as these shall never look

With his nasty hair and hands.
See! his nails are never cut;
They are grimed as black as soot;
