Verse 2:

They sold me a dream of Christmas
They sold me a silent night
And they told me a fairy story*
'till I believed in the israelite

And I believed in father Christmas
And I looked at the sky with excited eyes
'till I woke with a yawn in the first light of dawn
And I saw him and through his disguise
