Lyrics: Jolly old St. Nicholas, Lean your ear this way! Don’t you tell a single soul, What I’m going to say; Christmas Eve is coming soon; Now, you dear old man, Whisper what you’ll bring to me: Tell me if you can.
When the clock is striking twelve, When I'm fast asleep, Down the chimney broad and black, With your pack you'll creep; I do love the computer that I got last year, but Now would like some upgrades please, won't you, Santa dear?
I would like my own disk drive, cassette's too slow to load And a big pack of blank disks, On which to save my code Also get me a disk notcher, to use the back side Yes I know I could use scissors But this is quicker... and looks much more nice
