The Daily News from The Animal Quartet-December 13, 2018, Thursday

Flopsy: “Reporting to you from SiennaTigerlily’s bedroom, today is December 13, 2018, and it is a Thursday, and my name is Flopsy the White Bunny. These are my co-hosts, Jake the Ape, Peanuts the Elephant, and Ducky Buttons the Yellow Duck. And today, instead of the news, it’s going to be more Christmas songs.

So off we go:

Here’s mine. It’s called ‘Here We Come A-Wassailing’.

Here we come a-wassailing among the leaves so green;
Here we come a-wandering, so fair to be seen.
Love and joy come to you, and to you our wassail, too.
And God bless you and send you a Happy New Year
And God bless you and send you a Happy New Year

We are not daily beggars that beg from door to door;
But we are neighbours’ children whom you have seen before. Refrain

We have a little purse made of ratching leather skin;
We want a little sixpence to line it well within. Refrain

God bless the master of this house, likewise the mistress, too;
And all the little children that round the table go. Refrain

And there’s my song. Pretty darn good song, don’t ya think? Well, that’s it for me. See you tomorrow night.

Peanuts: “My song is more traditional. Sort of I guess. Anyway, presenting to you ‘We Wish you A Merry Christmas’.


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 a figgy pudding;
Oh, bring us a figgy pudding;
Oh, bring us a figgy pudding and a cup of good cheer. Refrain

We won’t go until we get some;
We won’t go until we get some;
We won’t go until we get some, so bring some out here. Refrain

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

That’s it for me. See you later everybody.”

Ducky Buttons: “My Christmas song this evening is ‘Caroling, Caroling Wihla Hutson.

Caroling, Caroling Wihla Hutson

Caroling, caroling, now we go
Christmas bells are ringing
Caroling, caroling thru the snow
Christmas bells are ringing

Joyous voices sweet and clear
Sing the sad of heart to cheer
Ding dong, ding dong
Christmas bells are ringing

Caroling, caroling thru the town
Christmas bells are ringing
Caroling, caroling up and down
Christmas bells are ringing
Mark ye well the song we sing
Gladsome tidings now we bring
Ding dong, ding dong
Christmas bells are ringing!

Caroling, caroling, near and far
Christmas bells are ringing
Following, following yonder star
Christmas bells are ringing
Sing we all this happy morn
“Lo, the King of heav’n is born!”
Ding dong, ding dong.

With my song finished, that is the end of my news segment. I will see you later.”

Jake: “And lastly this evening, my song. It’s ‘Silver Bells’, and it’s done by Jay Livingston and Ray Evans.

Silver Bells
Jay Livingston and Ray Evans

City sidewalks, busy sidewalks
Dressed in holiday style
In the air
There’s a feeling
of Christmas
Children laughing
People passing
Meeting smile after smile
And on ev’ry street corner you’ll hear

Silver bells, silver bells
It’s Christmas time in the city
Ring-a-ling, hear them sing
Soon it will be Christmas day

Strings of street lights
Even stop lights
Blink a bright red and green
As the shoppers rush
home with their treasures

Hear the snow crunch
See the kids bunch
This is Santa’s big scene
And above all this bustle
You’ll hear
Silver bells, silver bells
It’s Christmas time in the city
Ring-a-ling, hear them sing
Soon it will be Christmas day.’

“There ends my news segment. And so we’ll see you next time.”

Jake, Flopsy, Peanuts, and Ducky Buttons: “That’s all for the news tonight, folks! Have a good rest of the night, and stay warm.”

The End for today.
