George Jones – Hang Up The Baby's Stocking lyrics

Hang up the baby's stocking
Be sure that you don't forget
For the dear little dimpled darling
Has never seen Christmas yet!

I told her all about it
She opened her big blue eyes
I'm sure she understood it
She looked so funny and wise.

--- Instrumental ---

Gee, what a tiny stocking!
It doesn't take much to hold
But little pink toe's as baby's
Away from the frost and the cold.

But then, for the baby's Christmas
It never would do at all
Why! Santa wouldn't be looking
For anything half so small.

--- Instrumental ---

(Lulu Belle)
I'll know what we'll do for the baby
I've thought of the very best plan
I'll borrow a stocking from Grandma
The biggest that ever I can.

And hang it by mine, dear mother
Right here in the corner so
I'll write a letter to Santa
And fasten it to the toe.

--- Instrumental ---

Write-this is the baby's stocking
That hangs in the corner here
You never have seen her, Santa
For she only came this year.

(Lulu Belle)
But she's just the blessed'st baby
And now before you go
Just cram her stocking with goodies
From the top down to the toe!

Hang up the baby's stocking
Be sure that you don't forget!
For the dear little dimpled darling,
Has never seen Christmas yet!...
