1. As I sat under a sycamore tree,
I looked me out upon the sea,
A Christmas day in the morning.

2. I saw three ships a-sailing there,
The Virgin Mary and Christ they bear,
A Christmas day in the morning.

3. He did whistle, and she did sing,
And all the bells on earth did ring.
A Christmas day in the morning.

4. And now we hope to taste your cheer,
And wish you all a Happy New Year,
A Christmas day in the morning.
