What crew the cockerel
On Christmas morn?
It crew Christus natus est!
Loudly Christus natus est!
Gladly Christus natus est!
Christ, the Christ is born!

Quando, quando? quacked the duck.
When, O when? cried she.
In hac nocte, croacked the raven,
Humped upon a tree,
In hac nocte, in hac nocte,
This very night, quoth he.

Ubi, ubi? lowed the cow,
Where? she asked of them.
Ubi, ubi? None could tell,
Till a little lamb
Baa'ed out bravely, high and clear,
Bleated, Bethlehem.

Joyfully the donkey's voice
Answered lambkin so:
Eamus! said the ass's bray,
As all Christian men now say
Eamus! Let us go.
