Christmas Mittens by Marchette Chute
I wanted a rifle for Christmas,
I wanted a bat and a ball,
I wanted some skates and a bicycle,
But I didn’t want mittens at all.
I wanted a whistle
And I wanted a kite,
I wanted a pocketknife
That shut up tight.
I wanted some boots
And I wanted a kit,
But I didn’t want mittens one little bit.
I told them I didn’t like mittens,
I told them as plain as plain.
I told them I didn’t WANT mittens,
And they’ve given me mittens again!
