Version 1

Lyrics

As I sat on a sunny bank,
As I sat on a sunny bank,
As I sat on a sunny bank
On Christmas Day all in the morning

I saw three ships come sailing… on Christmas Day all in the morning.

And who do you think was in them then.. But Joseph and his fair lady!

O he did whistle and she did sing… on Christmas Day all in the morning.

And all the bells on earth did ring… on Christmas Day in the morning.

And all the angels in heaven did sing… on Christmas Day in the morning.

Version 2

 

Lyrics

As I sat on a sunny bank,
As I sat on a sunny bank,
As I sat on a sunny bank
On Christmas Day in the morning

I saw three ships come sailing by… on Christmas Day in the morning.

And who d’you think was on the ship.. But Joseph and his fair lady!

O he did whistle and she did sing… on Christmas Day in the morning.

 

Version 3

 

Lyrics

As I sat on a sunny bank, a sunny bank, a sunny bank,
As I sat on a sunny bank on Christmas Day in the morning.

I saw three ships come sailing… on Christmas Day in the morning.

I asked them what they had in… on Christmas Day in the morning.

They said they had the Savior in… on Christmas Day in the morning.

They said they found Him in Bethlehem… on Christmas Day in the morning.

Now all the bells on earth shall ring… on Christmas Day in the morning.

And all the angels in heaven shall ring… on Christmas Day in the morning.
