LITTLE DONKEY
Little donkey, little donkey
On the dusty road
Got to keep on plodding onwards
With your precious load.
Been a long time, little donkey
Through the winter’s night
Don’t give up now, little donkey
Bethlehem’s in sight.
Chorus
Ring out those bells tonight
Bethlehem, Bethlehem
Follow that star tonight
Bethlehem, Bethlehem.

Three French hens sang
Ooh, La, La, La, La
Ooh, La, La, La, La
Ooh, La, La, La, La

Three French hens sang,
Ooh, La, La, La, La
On a Frosty Christmas Morning

WHEN SANTA GOT STUCK UP THE CHIMNEY

When Santa got stuck up the chimney
He began to shout
You girls and boys, won’t get any toys
If you don’t pull me out
My beard is black, there’s soot in my sack
My nose is tickly too
When Santa got stuck up the chimney
Achoo, achoo, achoo
