Three Ships

I saw three ships come sailing in
On Christmas Day, on Christmas Day.
I saw three ships come sailing in
On Christmas Day, in the morning.

And who was in those ships all three
On Christmas Day, on Christmas Day?
And who was in those ships all three
On Christmas Day, in the morning?

Twas Joseph and his Fair Ladye,
On Christmas Day, on Christmas Day.
Twas Joseph and his Fair Ladye,
On Christmas Day, in the morning.

O, he did whistle and she did sing,
On Christmas Day, on Christmas Day.
O, he did whistle and she did sing,
On Christmas Day, in the morning.

Saint Michael was the steeres-man,
On Christmas Day, on Christmas Day.
Saint Michael was the steeres-man,
On Christmas Day, in the morning.

Pray whither sailed those ships all three?
On Christmas Day, on Christmas Day.
Pray whither sailed those ships all three?
On Christmas Day, in the morning.

O, they sailed unto Bethlehem
On Christmas Day, on Christmas Day.
O, they sailed unto Bethlehem
On Christmas Day, in the morning.

And all the bells on earth shall ring,
On Christmas Day, on Christmas Day.
And all the bells on earth shall ring,
On Christmas Day, in the morning.

I've always wondered how one could sail in to Bethlehem, seeing as how it's landlocked and in the hills. Must be from the Gospel of Barnabas. Oh well, catchy tune anyway.
