Under the Mistletoe:
What happened there?

Under the Mistletoe,
This happened there
In the dark passage,
Close by the stair,
Under the Mistletoe,
This little pair were

But under the Mistletoe,
What happened there?

Under the Mistletoe
This little pair
Met with each other,
Whal happened here,
Under the Mistletoe?
Thai's their affair, there.

T_ ck- a -tick, tick-a-fick, tck-a-tick,Tock,
j! My poor little man' said the kind
I little clock,
"I fear you have broken your toy.
The la hole in your drum, and your
i heart's full of pain,
You 'a'y you will never be happy again,
Thd tdars are falling as fast as the rain,
Si I am sorry for you, little boy."
And 'more than one tear trickled over his face,
FQ) the clock keeps a very soft heart in its case.

jBow-wow-wow, bow-wow-wow, bow-wow-wow,
Said the dog, "little master, I can't tell you how
Unhappy I feel at your sorrow.
'Tere's a hole in the drum that was perfectly new,
And your heart, I am sure, must be broken in two,
But I am your doggie so faithful and true,
I think you I be better to-morrow;"
He finally added,"and as for the drum,
Perhaps we can manage to mend it with gum."
