You can hear it here , but it was originally a poem by Tom T. Hall in 1881. The musical version was somewhat updated for the Ames Bros version. I will be updating it as I catch the lyrics if you can help me out that would be great.
Jolly old St. Nicholas, Lean your ear this way!
Don’t you tell a single soul, What I’m going to say;
Christmas Eve is coming soon; Now, you dear old man,
Whisper what you’ll bring to me: Tell me if you can.
[chorus]Jingle Jingle tinkle tinkle sleigh bells in the snow It’s jolly old Saint Nicholas and his reindeer don’cha know?
When the clock is striking twelve, When I’m fast asleep,Down the chimney broad and black, With your pack you’ll creep;All the stockings you will find Hanging in a row;Mine will be the shortest one, You’ll be sure to know.
Johnny wants a pair of skates, Susy wants a dolly
Nellie wants a story book because she thinks a doll is sheer folly
