"I Saw Three Ships" as written by Edith Bergdahl, Traditional, and Nat Cole....
I saw three ships come sailing in
On Christmas Day, on Christmas Day
I saw three ships come sailing in
On Chrismas Day in the morning
And what was in those ships all three
On Christmas Day, on Christmas Day
And what was in those ships all three
On Christmas Day in the morning
'Twas Joseph and his lady fair
On Christmas Day, on Christmas Day
'Twas Joseph and his lady fair
On Christmas Day in the morning (Hey)
Oh he did whistle and she did sing
On Christmas Day, on Christmas Day
Oh he did whistle and she did sing
On Christmas Day in the morning
Saint Michael was the steersman
On Christmas Day, on Christmas Day
Saint Michael was the steersman
On Christmas Day in the morning
Pray, whither sailed those ships all three
On Christmas Day, on Christmas Day
Pray, whither sailed those ships all three
On Christmas Day in the morning
O they sailed into Bethlehem
On Christmas Day, on Christmas Day
O they sailed into Bethlehem
On Christmas Day in the morning
And all the bells on earth shall ring
On Christmas Day, on Christmas Day
And all the bells on earth shall ring
On Christmas Day in the morning
I saw three ships come sailing in
On Christmas Day, on Christmas Day
I saw three ships come sailing in
On Chrismas Day in the morning
