Mary Hopkin

"Cherry Tree Carol"

Mary and Joseph were walking one day
In a garden of cherries they happened to stray
In a garden of cherries they happened to stray

Mary spoke to Joseph so meek and so mild
"Go gather me some cherries for I am with child"
"Go gather me some cherries for I am with child"

Now, Joseph flew in anger, in anger flew he
"Let the father of your baby gather cherries for thee"
"Let the father of your baby gather cherries for thee"

Then Jesus, he spoke up from his mother's womb
Saying "Bow down cherry tree that my mother may have some"
Saying "Bow down cherry tree that my mother may have some"

And the cherry tree bowed down, bowed low to the ground
And Mary gathered cherries while Joseph stood around
And Mary gathered cherries while Joseph stood around

Now, Joseph took Mary along his right knee
Saying "Tell me pretty baby when your birthday shall be?"
Saying "Tell me pretty baby when your birthday shall be?"

"On the sixth day of January my birthday will be"
"When the element shall tremble and the stars will dance with glee"
"When the element shall tremble and the stars will dance with glee"
