Time to start carol singing

I'll start.. The infants have just started up with this one.

Away in a manger
no crib for a bed
the little lord Jesus laid down his sweet head
The stars in the bright sky looked down where he lay.
The little lord Jesus asleep on the hay!!!

happy Crimbal one and all!

Actually, I sound better singing virtually!!


  • OK my go...

    Once in Royal David's city
    stood a lowly cattle shed
    where a mother laid her baby
    in a manger for his bed
    Mary was that mother mild
    Jesus was the little child..

    Barkles, you're right. I have a better virtual voice...
  • We wish you a merry Christmas,
    We wish you a merry Christmas,
    We wish you a merry Christmas,
    And a happy New Year,

    Barkles, if this keeps coming down I'm doubtful for later.
  • DB, me too!

    ok they're onto

    Lift up lightly the stable bar
    weary wise men come from afar
    brought by the little kings bright new star
    is the little king sleeping?
  • This singing on the web lark is a doddle.
  • You've got a great voice though. Should we form the forums first ever male voice choir?

    Any tips on surviving my first ever Reception class carol thingy tomorrow?

  • Ding dong merrily on high
    In heaven the bells are ringing
    Ding dong merrily the sky
    Is riven with angels singing

    Glooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo ria
    Hosannah in excelsis
  • I used to think that that line was "Hosannah lives in Chelsea". Could never work out the connection between Christmas and Chelsea.
  • DB, great idea!
  • Joy to the world! the Lord is come:
    Let earth recieve here King;
    let every heart prepare him room,
    and heaven and nature sing,
    and heaven and nature sing,
    and heaven and nature sing,
    and heaven and nature sing,
    And heaven
    And heaven and nature sing.

  • Glooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo ria
    Hosannah in excelsis

    (starting to get carried away)
  • O come ye faithful,
    Runners and Spectators
    O come ye, O come ye to Lo-ndon Town
    Come and try It, the Flora London Mar'thon
    O come a-nd cheer us,
    O come a-nd sponsor us,
    O come a-nd adore Her, Pau-au-la.

  • O little town of Bethlehem
    How still we see thee lie
    Above thy deep and dreamless sleep
    The silent stars go by
    Yet in the dark streets shineth
    The everlasting light
    The hopes and fears of all the years
    Are met in thee tonight.

  • We three traders of Leicester Square
    Selling bras a penny a pair
    So fantastic
    No elastic
    Buy your wife a pair

  • Last Christmas I gave you my heart
    But the very next day you gave it away
    This year to save me from tears,
    I'll give it to someone special....

  • Good King Wenceslas went out
    In a cabbage garden
    Bumped into a brussels sprout
    Said "I beg your pardon".

    Oh, OK then...a real one.

    Little children, wake and listen
    Songs are breaking o'er the earth
    While the stars in heaven glisten
    Hear the news of Jesus' birth
    Long ago, through lonely meadows
    Angels brought the message down
    Still each year, through midnight shadows
    It is heard in every town.

    Hey why am I singing a solo? Have you ALL forgotten this one? It was my favourite when I was a nipper and I was most unimpressed when the Church of Scotland dropped it in a hymn book update about 25 years ago.

    The BEST thing about being a runner is having enough puff to do those "Glo-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-rias without stopping to take a breath in the middle.

  • "Come", they told me
    "A new-born King to see"
  • adopts pavarotti stance

    silent night,holy night
    all is calm all is bright

    not like my household.advent calendars should be banned for 5 year olds-too long a countdown....
  • Extract from The best “Christmas Carol” ever!

    Fairytale of New York – The Pogues & Kirsty Macoll

    You were handsome
    You were pretty
    Queen of New York City
    When the band finished playing
    They howled out for more
    Sinatra was swinging,
    All the drunks they were singing
    We kissed on a corner
    Then danced through the night
    The boys of the NYPD choir
    Were singing "Galway Bay"
    And the bells were ringing out
    For Christmas day

    You're a bum
    You're a punk
    You're an old slut on junk
    Lying there almost dead on a drip in that bed
    You scumbag, you maggot
    You cheap lousy faggot
    Happy Christmas your arse
    I pray God it's our last

    I could have been someone
    Well so could anyone
    You took my dreams from me
    When I first found you
    I kept them with me babe
    I put them with my own
    Can't make it all alone
    I've built my dreams around you

    Happy Christmas all!!

  • O come, o come Ema-a-a-nuel
    And ransom captive I-i-i-srael
    That mourns in lonely e-e-xile here
    Until the Son of Go-o-o-d appear
    Oh come, oH come, Ema-a-a-nuelshall come to thee
    O I-i-i-srael

    Well, it IS still Advent.
  • While shepards wash there socks by night
    All watching ITV
    The angel of the Lord came down
    And switched it over to BBC.

    We 3 kings of Orient are
    One in a taxi, one in a car
    One on a scooter, pipping his hooter
    Smoking a big cigar
    Star of wonder, star of light
    Sitting on a box of dynamite
    Light the fuse and then you'll see
    The quickest way to the cemetry.
  • You're a vile one, Mr Grinch
    You're the king of smelly socks
    You're a nasty case of measles, you're a dose of chickenpox
    Mr Gri-INCH
    You're a three-decker sourdrop-and-toadstool sandwich.....
    With arsenic sauce.

    Well, it's ALMOST a Christmas carol, and the last three lines are as it was in the film.
  • In the bleak mid winter
    Restless winds made moan (think that's right!!)
    Earth stood hard as iron
    Water like a stone

    Snow had fallen snow on snow
    Snooooooowwwwwww on snow

    In the bleak mid winter
    Looooong ago

  • GavoGavo ✭✭✭

    robin flew away,

    father christmas

    in the milky way.....hey!
  • Greeny - that's the best but you make me sad for Kirsty :(

    In the bleak midwinter
    Frosty wind made moan
    Earth stood hard as iron
    Water like a stone
    Snow had fallen snow on snow
    Snowwwwwww onnnnnnnn snowwwwwwwwwwww
    In the deep mid winter
    Loooooooong ago
  • the holly and the ivy
    when they are both full grown
    of all the trees that are in the woods
    the holly bears the crown

    the dddddaaaddddddaaaaaaa
    and the running of the deer
    the playing of the merry organ (!)
    the sweet sinning of the choir

    (all sung with perfect choirboy intonation)
