Lyrics

We wish you a Merry Christmas (x3)
And a happy New Year.

Good tidings we bring to you and your kin
Good tidings for Christmas and a happy New Year.

Oh bring us a figgy pudding (x3)
And a cup of good cheer.

We won't go until we get some (x3)
So bring some out here.

We wish you a Merry Christmas (x3)
And a happy New Year.

We wish you a Merry Christmas (x3)
And a happy New Year.

We wish you a Merry Christmas (x3)
And a happy New Year.
