Fill in the blanks

little 1
little silent Christmas 2.

you are so little

you are more like a 3

who found you in the green 4

and were you very 5to come away ?

see i will comfort you because you smell so sweetly

i will 6your cool 7

and 8you safe and tight

just as your mother would,

only don't be 9

look the spangles

that sleep all year in the dark 10

dreaming of being taken out and allowed to shine

the 11 the chains red and gold the fluffy threads,

put up your little arms

and i'll give them all to you to hold

every 12 shall have its 13


and there won't be a single place dark or unhappy


then when you're quite dressed


you 'll stand in the 14


for every one to see


and how they'll stare !


oh but you'll be very proud


and my little sister and i will take 15
and looking up at our beautiful 16


we'll dance and sing
"Noel Noel"
