Even though I hate them and rant on about them I always come over a bit sentimental when they're stood at the door....usually end up chickening out and muttering something about "no money..." until they bugger off.
:mad:

Funny - they never ask, but they always stop singing and leave when I tell them I haven't got any :rolleyes:

I swapped it out when I remembered O come all ye faithful...partly because O come is more fun to sing and partly because I don't know anyone who doesn't sing God rest ye as:

"God rest ye merry gentlemen let nothing ye dismay (the last bit mumbled),
Di dum di dum di dum di dum was born on christmas day,
To save us from di dum di dum,
And dum di dum di dum,
go-od tiding of comfort and joy, comfort and joy,
go-od tiding of comfort and joy"

The mumbled middle always depresses me a little
God rest ye merry gentlemen let nothing ye dismay!
Remember Christ our saviour was born (on/upon) (Christmas/this) Day!
To save us all from Satan's power
When we were gone astray!
Oh! Tidings of comfort and joy!, comfort and joy!
Ooh Tidings of comfort and joy!

See I know it! It's really fun to sing though better in a deep voice which is probably why women don't like it.

following yonder star

:eek: Looks like I'm not the only carol fan on the forum

See amid the winter snow
Born for us on earth below
See the lamb of god appears
Promised for eternal yr
Hail though ever blessed morn
Hail redemptions happy dawn
Sing through all Jeruselem
Christ is born in Bethlehem


Hark the herald angels sing
Glory to the newborn King
peace on earth, and mercy mild
God and sinners reconcile
Joyful all ye nations rise
join the triumph of the skies
with the angelic host proclaim
Christ is born in Bethlehem
Hark the herald angels sing
Glory to the newborn King

I'm not religious but I like carols! and I know lots of rude versions

Whilst shepherds washed their socks by night,
All seated on the bank,
The Angel of the Lord came down
And taught them how to ****

That's from the Vicar of Dibley.

Ditto - there's nothing like belting out a good ding dong (and laughing at how the words have been crammed in to rhyme)

"Ding dong merrily on high
In heaven the bells are ringing
Ding dong verily the sky
is riv'n with angels singing"

Riven??? :confused:
I love it

I prefer modern Christmas songs... carols bore me unless they are changed a bit

Nothing can win a cheeky christmas song.

I like Hark the Herald Angels Sing:

Late in time, behold him come
Offspring of a virgin's womb.

Come and womb don't rhyme!

:snigger: virgin
:snigger: womb
(sorry just reverting back to school days )

I like it when the words get almost completely apostrophe'd out in an attempt to cram all the words onto one line
