We wish you a merry Christmas dates back to 16th century England. It's a caroling song and these carolers are demanding a nice drink and some figgy pudding!

Here's a more modern verse…

We all know that Santa's coming,
We all know that Santa's coming,
We all know that Santa's coming,
And soon will be here.
