Here we stand upon your porch to sing of the Messiah Cold we are, and out of breath, envious of your fire Ask us in and we shall be your guests most entertaining Else we serenade your neighbors with off-key complaining CHORUS Jingly hey, jingly hi-de-hi, May Christmas make you merry Jingly hey, jingly hi-de-hi, May Christmas bring you joy Thank you kindly, ma’am and sir, for entry to your parlor The finery of this plush surround makes our homes feel like squalor Now, hats in hand before your hearth, we harmonize so hearty Your smiling faces all around make this a jolly party CHORUS Have you got a mincemeat pie, and nutmeg in your cider? We shall devour a slice apiece – your daughter there!- I spied her! Now she sings upon my knee, and warms me with desire Her talent ought to be encouraged in my private choir CHORUS We sing to spread God’s Gospel news, not for our own diversions Though uncouth singers deign to warble the devil’s wild dark versions We are not wont to dally in such commonplace perversions How dare you sully our good name by casting wild aspersions CHORUS So off we go a-wassailing, to a more cordial pasture With bellies full and reddened cheeks we’ll carol all the faster Then, wise as magi ‘neath the star that calls us to the stable, We’ll share the joy we sang tonight around our Christmas table. CHORUS

about

I've been privileged to be asked to contribute to a number of year-end holiday compilations over the years... watch for a new one in 2023, but meanwhile enjoy the best of my previous efforts...
