Christmas is the old man's hat

Ref.: Christmas is coming and the goose is getting fat.
Hey, put a penny in the old man's hat.
Light up the fire, the wind is blowing cold,
Santa Claus is getting old.

1) O Mammy dear, on Christmas day again I must complain.
I wonder is it Santa Claus, who makes mistakes again.
You see there's little Jenny Vrown, she got so many things,
dolls and sweets and teddybears and clothes and golden rings.

2) O Mammy, Jenny has too much and still it’s not enough.
But little Peter down the road got none of all the stuff,
he’s cold and hungry, can’t you see, there’s hole in both his shoes,
no toys for him, and clothes and sweets and no Christmas goods.

3) O Child, I understand you now, you think this is not right.
Some children live all in the dark while others own the light.
But Santa Claus is not to blame, while pouring out his load,
for Jenny Brown should simply share with Peter down the road.
