Christmas Carols

Christmas Carols

I Saw Three Socks

I saw three socks go sailing by,
On Christmas Day, on Christmas Day,
I saw three Socks go sailing by,
On Christmas day in the morning.

And who had got those socks all three?
On Christmas Day, on Christmas Day,
And who had got those socks all three,
On Christmas day in the morning?

When Santa came, he filled them up,
On Christmas Day, on Christmas Day
But was spotted by my naughty pup,
On Christmas day in the morning.

And now the toys and chocs are gone,
On Christmas Day, on Christmas Day,
Inside his naughty little tum,
On Christmas day in the morning.

Ding Dong

Ding dong miserably I cry, my basset hound’s gone missing.
Ding dong verrily I sigh, our Christmas meal he’s eaten.
Hou - owowow, houwowow, houwowow, houndie
Why are you so naughty?

Ev’n though here we cry and bellow, we cannot grab the turkey
And as guests say their hellos, we’re cracking out the jerky
Hou - owowow, houwowow, houwowow, houndie
Why are you so naughty?

Prayed we suddenly find, some ham or we’d serve plain toast
But thanks to auntie Madeline, we’re going to serve the nut roast
Hou - owowow, houwowow, houwowow, houndie
Why are you so naughty?
