This carol is sung to the tune of "Here We Go Round the Mulberry Bush"...

Notes

2nd Version

1. As I sat on a sunny bank,
As I sat on a sunny bank,
As I sat on a sunny bank,
On Christmas Day all in the morning.

2. I saw three ships come sailing home,
I saw three ships come sailing home,
I saw three ships come sailing home
On Christmas Day all in the morning.

3. Who do you think were in those ships?
Who do you think were in those ships?
Who do you think were in those ships?
On Christmas Day all in the morning?

4. Christ and His Mother were in those ships,
Christ and His Mother were in those ships,
Christ and His Mother were in those ships
On Christmas Day all in the morning.
