Jingle Bells – Spring Gardens

Chorus:

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.

Dashing through the snow in a one-horse open sleigh
O’er the fields we go, laughing all the way (Ha ha ha)
Bells on bobtail ring making spirits bright
What fun it is to ride and sing a sleighing song tonight

Chorus

Now the ground is white and the night is young
Take the sleigh tonight and join us in this song
Just get a bobtailed bay. Get ready for a run
Then hitch him to a sleigh and now we’ll have some fun!

Chorus

 

Good King Wenceslas – Turner Memorial

 

All:          Good King Wenceslas looked out
On the feast of Stephen
When the snow lay round about
Deep and crisp and even
Brightly shone the moon that night
Though the frost was cruel
When a poor man came in sight
Gath’ring winter fuel

Boys:     “Hither, page, and stand by me
If thou know’st it, telling
Yonder peasant, who is he?
Where and what his dwelling?”

Girls:      “Sire, he lives a good league hence
Underneath the mountain
Right against the forest fence
By Saint Agnes’ fountain.”

Boys:     “Bring me flesh and bring me wine
Bring me pine logs hither
Thou and I will see him dine
When we bear him thither.”

All:          Page and monarch forth they went
Forth they went together
Through the rude wind’s wild lament
And the bitter weather

Girls:      “Sire, the night is darker now
And the wind blows stronger
Fails my heart, I know not how,
I can go no longer.”

Boys:     “Mark my footsteps, my good page
Tread thou in them boldly
Thou shalt find the winter’s rage
Freeze thy blood less coldly.”

All:          In his master’s steps he trod
Where the snow lay dinted
Heat was in the very sod
Which the Saint had printed
Therefore, Christian men, be sure
Wealth or rank possessing
Ye who now will bless the poor
Shall yourselves find blessing

White Christmas –  Town Hall front

I’m dreaming of a white Christmas
Just like the ones I used to know
Where the treetops glisten
and children listen
To hear sleigh bells in the snow

I’m dreaming of a white Christmas
With every Christmas card I write
May your days be merry and bright
And may all your Christmases be white.   (Repeat)

Deck the halls – Market Square cross

Deck the halls with boughs of holly, Fa la la la la la la!
‘Tis the season to be jolly, Fa la la la la la la la!
Don we now our gay apparel, Fa la la la la la la la!
Troll the ancient Yuletide carol, Fa la la la la la la la!

See the blazing yule before us, Fa la la la la la la la!
Strike the harp and join the chorus, Fa la la la la la la!
Follow me in merry measure, Fa la la la la la la la!
While I tell of Yuletide treasure, Fa la la la la la la la!

Fast away the old year passes, Fa la la la la la la la!
Hail the new, ye lads and lasses, Fa la la la la la la la!
Sing we joyous all together! Fa la la la la la la la!
Heedless of the wind and weather, Fa la la la la la la!

Merry Christmas Everybody – Market Well

Are you hanging up a stocking on your wall
It’s the time that every Santa has a ball
Does he ride a red nosed reindeer
Does a ton-up on his sleigh
Do the fairies keep him sober for a day.

So here it is Merry Christmas
Everybody’s having fun
Look to the future now,
It’s only just begun.

Are you waiting for the family to arrive
Are you sure you got the room to spare inside
Does your granny always tell ya
That the old songs are the best
Then she’s up and rock and rollin’ with the rest.

So here it is Merry Christmas
Everybody’s having fun
Look to the future now
It’s only just begun.

Are you hanging up a stocking on your wall
Are you hoping that the snow will start to fall
Do you ride on down the hillside
In a buggy you have made
When you land upon your head
Then you been slayed.

So here it is Merry Christmas
Everybody’s having fun
Look to the future now
It’s only just begun.

So here it is Merry Christmas
Everybody’s having fun
Look to the future now
It’s only just begun.

While Shepherds Watched – Broad Walk

While shepherds watched their flocks by night
All seated on the ground
The angel of the Lord came down
And glory shone around
And glory shone around

“Fear not,” he said, for mighty dread
Had seized their troubled minds
“Glad tidings of great joy I bring
To you and all mankind,
To you and all mankind.”

“To you in David’s Town this day
Is born of David’s line
The Savior who is Christ the Lord
And this shall be the sign
And this shall be the sign.”

“The heavenly Babe you there shall find
To human view displayed
And meanly wrapped
In swathing bands
And in a manger laid
And in a manger laid.”

Thus spake the seraph, and forthwith
Appeared a shining throng
Of angels praising God, who thus
Addressed their joyful song
Addressed their joyful song

“All glory be to God on high
And to the earth be peace;
Goodwill henceforth
From heaven to men
Begin and never cease
Begin and never cease!”

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer – Pavilion Gardens

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer
Had a very shiny nose
And if you ever saw it,
You would even say it glows,
And all of the other reindeer
Used to laugh and call him names,
They never let poor Rudolph
Join in any reindeer games,

Then one foggy Christmas Eve,
Santa came to say,
Rudolph with your nose so bright,
Wont you guide my sleigh tonight

Then how all the reindeer loved him,
As they shouted out with glee,
Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer,
You’ll go down in history
