Christmas Dinner, Country Style
Bing Crosby


There never was such a goose... there never was such a goose cooked!Mother, mother, everybodys starvin
Mother, mother, lets eat


Hold your horses, got a million courses
And Im fixin a treat


Jeremiah, go and help your mother
Jay and Jonah, you too
Hezekiah, go and get your brother
Then fetch Jamie and Sue


Mother, mother, everybodys happy
Got a reason to smile


Cause you know that Im about to servin
Christmas dinner - country style
Christmas dinner - country style

Everybodys sittin by your head
Well all say Grace

and then break bread!

Put your napkin on your lap
While (?) is sided from the tap

Oh dont that turkey look divine
Well promenade it down the line
Plenty off duck, well long (?) on white
So (?) plant it to your right

Now the sachet (?) hello met country ham
And double-sachet (?) ham
Swing to the left, and test that stuffin
And swing to the right, a Huckleberry muffin

Time for your partner to reach across
And dosey-dose the cranberry sauce

Have another helpin (?) one and all
And you in the roomer (?), swing to the ball
Pass a little drum steak, if you please
And promenade the pretty bag-eyed (?) peas

When you all say cheese, dosey-dose
So muchs turkey is about to explode
But you still gotta swing to the pickle twist
Choose your pie (?)

Oh dinner was grand, to say the least
So honour the lady who cooked the beast

Mother, mother, thank you for the dinner
All the fixins were great

Nothin to it, mighty glad to do it
Seeing how much you ate

Jeremiah, go and get your dinner
Come on father, lets eat (?)

Im too full of turkey and the stuffin
I aint takin chance
Its a very, very merry Christmas
Got a reason to smile

Mother, mother, everybody loved your
Christmas dinner country style
