Original version -
Well there's mince pies and sherry and pudding and whisky
candies and chocolates and to make us all frisky

Rupert the chocolate angel

and he gulped the sherry down
doffed his boots and had a rest
then he looked round at Rupert
melted now and quite deceased
gave out a little giggle
and had a little chocolate feast
