As I sat on a sunny bank


As FI sat on a sunny bank,
a Gm7sunny bank, a Csunny bank,
as FI sat on a sunny bank
on C7Christmas Day in the Fmorning.

 

1. 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.

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

3. And who d’you think were on the ships,
were on the ships, were on the ships,
and who d’you think were on the ships,
but Joseph and his Lady.

4. O he did whistle and she did sing,
and all the bells on earth did ring,
for joy our Saviour Christ was born
on Christmas Day in the morning.

5. Then let us all rejoice amain,
on Christmas Day, on Christmas Day,
then let us all rejoice amain
on Christmas Day in the morning.
