Christmas Time is Here

Caretaker's Song 

All Around the Town this Place is Jumping

I'd Rather Have a Bale of Hay

Stop that Knocking

Sheep-a-deep-sleep

Ring out the Bells

Lyrics

Christmas Time is Here

 

We’ve waited for so long it seems,

It feels like years and years,

It’s cold outside, but we don’t care

‘cause Christmas time is here.

 

Chorus             We’ve heard them say

                          That Santa’s on his way.

                          We hope and pray

                          There are lots of presents on his sleigh!

 

The shops are full of games and toys,

There’s magic in the air.

It’s cold outside, but we don’t care

‘cause Christmas time is here.

 

Chorus

 

We’ll try to stay awake to see

The reindeer all appear.

It’s cold outside, but we don’t care

‘cause Christmas time is here.

 

 

Chorus

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Caretaker’s Song

 

Caretaker (solo)

I’ll work with all my might

Even if it takes all night

And I’ll get this bauble finished

For our Christmas tree.

 

Mice

He’ll work with all his might

Even if it takes all night

And he’ll get this bauble finished

For our Christmas tree.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This Place is Jumping

 

All around the town this place is jumping,

Everybody’s packing up their things.

All around the town this place is jumping,

Something really big is happening.

 

Chorus             A decree has come from Caesar

                          And you must travel home,

                          If you don’t the guards’ll seize ya

                          And you’ll find yourself in Rome!

 

We’re all getting ready for our journey,

Everybody’s packing up their things.

We’re all getting ready for our journey,

Something really big is happening.

 

Chorus

 

Night is here and soon we must be leaving,

Everybody’s packing up their things.

Night is here and soon we must be leaving,

Something really big is happening.

Follow a Shining Star

 

All

Our journey will take us far,

We must follow a shining star,

But which direction we’re just not sure,

We’re so confused we don’t know anymore.

Balthasar

I think I know, I’m pretty sure which is best..

We must look to the west!

 

All

Our journey will take us far,

We must follow a shining star,

But which direction we’re just not sure,

We’re so confused we don’t know anymore.

Caspar

I think I know, I think I’ve worked it out..

We must look to the south!

 

All

Our journey will take us far,

We must follow a shining star,

But which direction we’re just not sure,

We’re so confused we don’t know anymore.

Melchior

I think I know, it’s really clear of course..

We must look to the north!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I’d Rather Have a Bale of Hay

 

We’ve been walking for many hours,

Along this road so long,

Underneath the stars so bright,

We’re plodding on all through the night,

Still we’ve many miles ahead

Before we find somewhere to rest our heads.

We’re dreaming of a nice hot meal, a bed on which to lie,

Imagine how good that will feel.

Donkey

I’d rather have a bale of hay!

 

We’ve been walking for many days,

Along this road so long,

Underneath the stars so bright,

We’re plodding on all through the night,

Still we’ve many miles ahead

Before we find somewhere to rest our heads.

We’re dreaming of a nice hot meal, a bed on which to lie,

Imagine how good that will feel.

Donkey

I’d rather have a bale of hay!

 

We’ve been walking for many weeks,

Along this road so long,

Underneath the stars so bright,

We’re plodding on all through the night,

Still we’ve many miles ahead

Before we find somewhere to rest our heads.

We’re dreaming of a nice hot meal, a bed on which to lie,

Imagine how good that will feel.

Donkey

I’d rather have a bale of hay!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Stop that Knocking!

 

Innkeeper 1

Will you stop that knocking?

There’s no room at the inn.

The beds are full, there’s no more space,

I just can’t let you in.

All

Please stop your knocking

And get upon your way,

You’ll have to find some other place to stay!

 

Innkeeper 2

Will you stop that knocking?

There’s no room at the inn.

The beds are full, there’s no more space,

I just can’t let you in.

All

Please stop your knocking

And get upon your way,

You’ll have to find some other place to stay!

 

Innkeeper 3

Ring Out Those Bells

 

At Christmas time we remember

A shining star over Bethlehem.

A baby born in a stable

With ox and ass watching over him.

 

Chorus             So ring out, ring out those Christmas bells,

                          Let’s spread the news around the world.

                          Sing out, sing out and hear our song,

                          Welcome the new born King.

 

At Christmas time we remember

The miracle of a humble birth.

A baby born in a stable,

The Son of God sent to us on earth.

 

Chorus

 

Rejoice in celebration,

The joy of God’s creation,

A merry Christmas from our school
