DIAMONDS wouldn't tell yer all I really think of you,
The costliest gift the goldsmith makes I'm sure would never do.
There's nothing known that gold can buy that I could ever send
That could explain how glad I am to have yer fer a friend.
If I had all the wealth of earth and what I like could get
And I should send it on to you, I'd still be in your debt,
And still the heart o' me would cry: 'That ain't enough t' do
Fer one whose smiles an' kindly words have meant so much t' you.'
It's Christmas time, an' here I am, a-wishin' all that's good
