Notes

The church bell rings, through the mist choirs sing
The early bird takes to the wing
The crisp morning air and the trees so bare
It's Christmas on the Brummegham Cut
It's Christmas on the Brummegham Cut

The bilges are clear, the old stove well afire
Wood all stacked up and dried
The cracking of ice as the breaker hoots twice
It's Christmas etc x 2

It's Christmas on the Brummegham Cut
The boat and the butty tied up
It's Christmas time, sup the ale and mulled wine
It's Christmas on the Brummegham Cut

The old yellow lamp paints shadows on the winda
Dripping tears on the virginal snow
Old Stan staggers by with his bible and gin
He'll be lucky if he don't fall in
Yes it's Christmas on the Brummegham Cut x 2

It's Christmas on the Brummegham Cut
Snow fresh speckled with soot
The ice is so thick you could bounce a big brick
It's Christmas on the Brummegham Cut
