Dum, dum, dum, dum...

Long time ago in Bethlehem, so the Holy Bible say,
Mary's boy child Jesus Christ was born on Christmas Day.
  Hark! Now hear the angels sing: a new King's born today
  and man will live for evermore, because of Christmas Day.


While shepherds watched their flocks by night, they saw a bright new shining star
and heard a choir sing, the music seemed to come from afar.
  Hark! Now hear the angels sing: a new King's born today
  and man will live for evermore, because of Christmas Day.


Now Joseph and his wife Mary came to Bethlehem that night;
they found no place to bear the child, not a single room was in sight.
By and by they found a little nock in a stable, all forlorn;
and in a manger, cold and dark, Mary's little Boy was born.
  Trumpets sound and angels sing, listen to what they say:
  that man will live for evermore, because of Christmas Day.


Dum, dum, dum, dum...
