Emily Jane
Oh! Christmas time is coming again,
And what shall I buy for Emily Jane?
O Emily Jane, my love so true,
Now what upon earth shall I buy for you?
My Emily Jane, my doll so dear,
I’ve loved you now for many a year,
And still while there’s anything left of you,
My Emily Jane, I’ll love you true!
My Emily Jane has lost her head,
And has a potato tied on instead;
A hole for an eye, and a lump for a nose,
It really looks better than you would suppose.
My Emily Jane has lost her arms,
The half of one leg’s the extent of her charms;
But still, while there’s anything left of you,
My Emily Jane, I’ll love you true!

And now, shall I bring you a fine new head,
Or shall I bring you a leg instead?
Or will you have arms, to hug me tight,
When naughty ‘Lizabeth calls you a fright?
Or I’ll buy you a dress of satin so fine,
‘Mong all the dolls to shimmer and shine;
For oh! while there’s anything left of you,
My Emily Jane, I’ll love you true!
Mamma says, “Keep all your pennies, Sue,
And I’ll buy you a doll all whole and new;”
But better I love my dear old doll,
With her one half-leg and potato poll.
“The potato may rot, and the leg may fall?”
Well, then I shall treasure the sawdust, that’s all!
For while there is anything left of you,
My Emily Jane, I’ll love you true!
