We Wish You a Merry Christmas

We wish you a Merry Christmas,
We wish you a Merry Christmas,
We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Good tidings we bring to you and your kin,
Good tidings for Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Oh bring us some figgy pudding,
Oh bring us some figgy pudding,
Oh, bring us some figgy pudding and a cup of good cheer!

We won't go until we get some,
We won't go until we get some,
We won't go until we get some, please bring some out here
.
We wish you a Merry Christmas,
We wish you a Merry Christmas,
We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
