With frosting galore
One was eaten and then there were four.
Four little Christmas cookies
Two and two you see
One was eaten and then there were three.
Three little Christmas cookies
But before I knew
One was eaten and then there were two.
Two little Christmas cookies ,
Oh what fun!
One was eaten and then there was one.
One little Christmas cookie
Watch me run!
I ate the last one
And then there were none!

Santa wore a red suit, red suit, red suit.
Santa wore a red suit all night long.

What will you do?
You can’t guide Santa
If your nose is BLUE!
The children are in bed.
And now you’re ready
Cause your nose is RED!
