Lyrics to Holiday/Christmas Songs

Here we come a-Wassailing

Here we come a-Wassailing
Among the leaves so green,
Here we come a wandering,
So fairly to be seen.
Here we come a wandering
So fairly to be seen.
Love and joy come to you
And to you a Wassail too
God bless you and send you,
A Happy New Year
God send you a Happy New Year.

We are not daily beggars
That beg from door to door,
But we're the neighbours' children,
That you have seen before.
We're the neighbours' children
That you have seen before.
Love and joy come to you,
And to you a Wassail too,
God bless you and send you,
A Happy New Year,
God send you a Happy New Year.

I have a little purse
It's made of leather skin.
I need a silver sixpence,
To line it well within.
I need a silver sixpence,
To line it well within.
Love and joy come to you
And to you a Wassail too,
God bless you and send you,
A Happy New Year.
God send you a Happy New Year.

God bless the master of the house.
And then the mistress too,
And all the little children,
That round the table grew.
All the little children,
That round this table grew.
Love and joy come to you,
And to you a Wassail too,
God bless you and send you,
A Happy New Year
God send you a Happy New Year.

Here we come a-Wassailing
Among the leaves so green,
And here we come a wandering,
So fairly to be seen.
Here we come a wandering,
So fairly to be seen
Love and joy come to you,
And to you a Wassail too,
God bless you and send you,
A Happy New Year
God send you a Happy New Year.
God bless you and send you,
A Happy New Year
God send you a Happy New Year.

Jingle Bells

Dashing through the snow

On a one horse open sleigh

O'er the fields we go,

Laughing all the way

Bells on bob tail ring,

making spirits bright

What fun it is to laugh and sing

A sleighing song tonight

Oh, jingle bells, jingle bells

Jingle all the way

Oh, what fun it is to ride

In a one horse open sleigh

Jingle bells, jingle bells

Jingle all the way

Oh, what fun it is to ride

In a one horse open sleigh

A day or two ago,

I thought I'd take a ride,

And soon Miss Fanny Bright

Was seated by my side;

The horse was lean and lank

Misfortune seemed his lot

We got into a drifted bank,

And then we got upsot.

Oh, jingle bells, jingle bells

Jingle all the way

Oh, what fun it is to ride

In a one horse open sleigh

Jingle bells, jingle bells

Jingle all the way

Oh, what fun it is to ride

In a one horse open sleigh

Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells,

Jingle all the way!

Oh, What fun it is to ride

In a one horse open sleigh.

Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells,

Jingle all the way!

Santa Claus is Coming to Town

Performing Arts Academy

You better watch out

You better not cry

Better not pout

I'm telling you why

Santa claus is Coming to Town

Silent Night

Silent night, holy night!

All is calm, all is bright.

Round yon Virgin, Mother and Child.

Holy infant so tender and mild,

​Sleep in heavenly peace,

Sleep in heavenly peace

O Come, All ye Faithful

O come, all ye faithful
Joyful and triumphant
O come ye, o come ye to Bethlehem
Come and behold Him
Born the King of Angels!

O come, let us adore Him (3x)

Christ the Lord

Sing, choirs of angels, sing in exultation,
Sing, all ye citizens of Heaven above!
Glory to God, glory in the highest:
O come, let us adore Him, (3×)
Christ the Lord.

Yea, Lord, we greet thee, born this happy morning;
Jesus, to thee be glory given!
Word of the Father, now in flesh appearing!
O come, let us adore Him, (3×)
Christ the Lord.

We wish you a Merry Christmas

We wish you a Merry Christmas
We wish you a Merry Christmas
We wish you a Merry Christmas and a happy New Year
Good tidings we bring to you and your kin
We wish you a Merry Christmas and a happy New Year

Oh, bring us some figgy pudding
Oh, bring us some figgy pudding
Oh, bring us some figgy pudding
And bring it right here

Good tidings we bring to you and your kin
We wish you a Merry Christmas and a happy New Year
We won't go until we get some
We won't go until we get some
We won't go until we get some
So bring it right here

Good tidings we bring to you and your kin
We wish you a Merry Christmas and a happy New Year
We all like our figgy pudding
We all like our figgy pudding
We all like our figgy pudding
With all its good cheers

Good tidings we bring to you and your kin
We wish you a Merry Christmas and a happy New Year
We wish you a Merry Christmas
