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
