Harry Secombe – The Holly And The Ivy lyrics
The Holly and the Ivy
When they are both full grown
O-of all the trees that are in the wood
The-e holly bears the crown

Oh the rising of the su-un
And the running of the deer
The-e playing of the merry organ
Swee-eet singing in the choir

The holly bears a blossom
As white as lily flower
A-and Mary bore sweet Jesus Christ
To-oo be our sweet Savior

Oh the rising of the su-un
And the running of the deer
The-e playing of the merry organ
Swee-eet singing in the choir

The holly bears a berry
As red as any blood
A-and Mary bore sweet Jesus Christ
To-oo do poor sinners good

Oh the rising of the su-un
And the running of the deer
The-e playing of the merry organ
Swee-eet singing in the choir

The holly bears a prickle
As sharp as any thorn;
A-and Mary bore sweet Jesus Christ
O-on Christmas day in the morn'

Oh the rising of the su-un
And the running of the deer
The-e playing of the merry organ
Swee-eet singing in the choir

The holly bears a bar-ark
As bitter as any gall
A-and Mary bore sweet Jesus Christ
For-or to redeem us all

Oh the rising of the su-un
And the running of the deer
The-e playing of the merry organ
Swee-eet singing in the choir...
