lyrics

Jesus our brother, kind and good
Was humbly born in a stable rude
And the friendly beasts around him stood
Je...
Jesus our brother, kind and good

I said the Camel, yellow and black
Over the desert upon my back
I carried the gifts in a wise man’s sack
I said the Camel, yellow and black

I said the Sheep with curly hair
I made him a cozy sweater to wear
I knit it myself! With utmost care
I said the Sheep with curly hair

I said the Cow with the big white head
I ate too much food to clear off his bed
Why don’t you stick ‘im in the pig trough instead?
I said the Cow with the big white head

I said the Dove from rafter high
I cooed him to sleep that he should not cry
We cooed him to sleep, my mate and I
I said the Dove from rafter high
