Track 1:                                Roll On, Christmas! ALL

 

Chorus:                Roll on, Christmas!

                                It's Christmas time again.

                                Roll on, Christmas!

                                It's Christmas time again.

                                Time to shovel snow again,

                                For your nose to glow again,

                                Kiss your Aunty Flo again,

                                Roll on, Christmas!

 

                                Time for kettles on the hob,

                                Time for stoppers in your gob,

                                Butter up your Uncle Bob,

                                Roll on, Christmas!

(Y4 Choir Harmony)

                                Ding, Dong, Ding,

                                The church bells ring,

                                Hear the choir sing:

                                Hosanna in Excelsis.

 

(The Choir now sing “Ding Dong Merrily…” as the Chorus repeat “Roll on, Christmas".)

 

 

Y4 Choir:                

Ding, dong! Merrily on high,

In heav'n the bells are ringing.

Ding, dong! Verily the sky

Is riv'n with angels singing.

Gloria, Hosanna in Excelsis.

Gloria, Hosanna in Excelsis.

 

Chorus:               

Roll on, Christmas!

It's Christmas time again.

Roll on, Christmas!

It's Christmas time again.

Time to shovel snow again,

For your nose to glow again,

Kiss your Aunty Flo again,

Roll on, Christmas!

 

Time for kettles on the hob,

Time for stoppers in your gob,

Butter up your Uncle Bob,

Roll on, Christmas!

 

 

All:
