(Spoken)
(Jack) Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Glory Halle...
(Johnny) What's all that noise?
(Jack) Hallelujah!
(Johnny) Don't give up with that now
(Jack) Glory Halle...
(Johnny) Who's that over in the corner?

Through the streets covered white with snow
Happy smiles er'ywhere you go

In that old coloured neighbourhood
Here and now be it understood

You just lead me t'the mistletoe
With a kiss and a hi-de-ho
