Wake Up Sleepyhead


Wake up sleepyhead wake up
Jump up and shout, “Hooray!”
Rise and then shine, everything’s fine
Be happy on this Christmas Day

With the coming of the sun in December
There’s watermelon, grapes and lemonade
And carols by night are a special delight
And Rudolf the Reindeer with the shiny red nose


There’s cricket on the telly all day (and night)
It’s the perfect way to waste time
Short men and tall, hitting bat upon ball
And running around in their yellow pyjamas now


Have you finished your last minute shopping?
Do you have all the presents you need?
One for your sister I hope you haven’t missed her
And don’t forget to buy something nice for the cat

CHORUS (repeated)

Be happy on this Christmas Day
Be happy on this Christmas Day
