The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,

In hopes that all my Christmas cards will get there,

The children were nestled all snug in their beds,

While mom made hanging oranges and gingerbread,

And I in my kerchief just settled down to wrap,

When outside I heard such a clatter and a little tap,tap,

I flew like a flash,

It was a fed ex man all dressed in red carrying my packages tied in a sash,

Oh, so happy am I,

I hugged him and gave him some pie!

 I shouted out  to him before he was out of sight,

Merry Christmas and to all a

 Good Night!
