Christmas Stocking

What will go into the Christmas Stocking
While the clock on the mantelpiece goes tick-tocking?
An orange, a penny
Some sweets, not too many
A trumpet, a dolly
A sprig of green holly
A book and a top
And a grocery shop
Some beads in a box
An ass and an ox
And a lamb, plain and good
All whittled in wood
A white sugar dove
A handful of love
Another of fun
And it's very near done
A big silver star
On top - there you are
Come morning you'll wake to the clock's tick-tocking
And that's what you'll find in the Christmas Stocking
