Sweet Xmas Greetings

May your Xmas fare be of the best

With nought to shock the Ladies

No friends of yours consign you to

Well! sanguinary Hades!

 

May nothing unforseen and startling

Make your Xmas go contrary,

Get rid of your bad habits,

Keep a check on your Little Mary.

 

I will not send my greeting

That all may hear from North to South

But will whisper when I see you

Just from mouth to mouth

A Merry Xmas hoping you have some great things before you

Let's hope you'll have a good bust up

And be as happy as a nigger

But mind your joys don't run you

Right into a big figure

 

I'll think of you this Xmas oft

And hope that you're on something soft

I wish (don't think I mean to tease)

To you a life of love and ease (knees)

 

Peaceful be this Xmas Night

Free from care and trouble

May your joys be soft and light

And may you not get double

A Merry Xmas hoping you won't have a drop too much this season!

To wish you both a high old time

To you and your old Dutch

Let's hope that you will not fall out

Nor take a drop too much

 

Don't lose your head this Xmas time,

If for lunch you get cold chop,

Learn to take like cheerfully,

Like the man on top

 

May Xmas not be miser-able,

But full of Life and Fury,

What you give away in presents

Is naught to anyone.

A Merry Xmas hoping you won't be taken in this day

Wishing you a Merry Xmas and no kid!

May your Christmas be Merry

And all your friends kind

May you leave all your cares

And your troubles behind

Remember that the end is near

After the Christmas break

Unless you put a good deal away

You won't make both ends meet!

     

Xmas has come round again,

Let's drain the loving cup

Altho' we quarrelled years ago

I see you've mde it up.
