Ding, ding, ding went the bell.
Zing, zing, zing went my heartstrings,
As we started for Huntingdon dell.

I love him more than I can say.
Doesn't try to please me, doesn't even tease me.

Affection for me won't display.
I just adore him, so I can't ignore him,
The Boy Next Door.

I was drunk the night before.

He was quite the handsomest of men

[singing] The moment I saw him smile
I knew he was just my style.
My only regret is we've never met,
Though I dream of him all the while.

[to Esther] Did he [Santa Claus] come yet? I've been waiting such a long time. And I haven't seen a thing. How will he know how to find us next year? He's so used to coming here.
