Once in a year it is not thought amiss to visit our neighbors
and sing out like this:
We wish you a merry Christmas. (Repeat twice)
And a happy new year.
We want some figgy pudding. (Repeat twice)
And a cup of good cheer.
We won't go until we get some. (Repeat twice)
So bring it out here.
Of friendship and love, good neighbors abound and peace and good
will the whole year around.
Why can't we have Christmas the whole year around? (Repeat this
line then the chorus, twice)
