Original text and translations
Let's dance and sing and make good cheer,
For Christmasse comes but once a year.
Make merry now nor draw a tear,
So early in the morning.
Then shout and sing till rafters ring,
For joy and mirth the seasons bring;
We'll welcome Father Christmasse in,
So early in the Morning.
