The ToneWay® Project: helping people play music

Put My Little Shoes Away

Come and 4 bathe my forehead, 1 mother
For I'm growing very 5 weak
1 Let one 4 drop of water, 1 mother
Fall up- 5 on my burnin' 1 cheek

4 You will do this won't you 1 mother
Please remember what I 5 say
1 Give them 4 all my toys but 1 mother
Put my 5 little shoes a 1 way

Go and tell my little playmates
That I never more will play
Give them all my toys but, mother
Put my little shoes away

Santa Claus, he brought them to me
With a lot of other things
And I think he brought an angel
With a pair of golden wings

Soon the baby will grow larger
And they'll fit his little feet
Won't he be so nice and cunning
As he walks upon the street

It’s on Strum Machine!
