The Christmas Riddle - Peggy Lee (佩吉·李)

Children may i tell a riddle


Of someone who's dear to you


Maybe you will guess the answer


Long before i'm through


Riddle a riddle oh tell us a riddle


Tell us a riddle please do


Well long ago there lived a bishop


Who was such a kindly man


All his life was spent in giving


That was how it all began


And they say he rode a white horse


As he went from door to door


Giving presents sweets and good things


Need i tell you any more


Riddle a riddle it still is a riddle


Tell us oh please tell us more


Next the legend says the children


Would leave hay in a wooden shoe


For the white horse he was riding


Now you have another clue


You gave us a clue you gave us a clue

About hay in a wooden shoe


He has many another name


In many another far off land


But no matter what the language


Every child will understand


Well now when you hang your stocking


He was why that all began


All the world has kept the custom


Of this kind and saintly man


We've got it we've got it we just guessed the riddle

We know how it all began


Yes you know 'twas saint nicholas


For giving gifts he was the cause


Some have named him dear kris kringle


Others call him santa claus


And much like the sweet dutch children


Would leave hay in a wooden shoe


Others leave some for the reindeer


And give presents too


Riddle the riddle we guessed the riddle


The riddle of dear old saint nick


The riddle of old saint nick
