Oh Little Child © Edward Scott

oh little child in Africa
do you know its Christmas time
soon the star of Bethlehem will shine

oh little child in Africa
I hope you're feeling fine
if you do not have a present, please, have mine

oh little child in Africa
I hope your heart is free
if you want to love someone, love me

and as my daddy drinks his beer
and my mummy drinks her wine
and dear old Santa's ate the last mince pie,
you have so little, I have so much,
it makes me wonder, why?

The Village Burglar By Anonymous


Under the spreading gooseberry bush,
the village burglar lies,
The burglar is a hairy man
with whiskers round his eyes.
He goes to church on Sundays,
He hears the Parson shout,
He puts a penny in the plate
and takes a shilling out.
