The True Story of Jesus

THE STORY OF OUR SAVIOUR’S BIRTH
IS ONE WE’VE ALL BEEN TOLD
HOW THREE WISE MEN CAME FROM THE EAST
THEY WERE BEARING GIFTS AND GOLD
THEY TRAVELLED FAR ACROSS THE SAND
FOR MANY DAYS ON END
AND WHEN THEY WERE ABOUT TO QUIT
THEY SAW IT ROUND THE BEND
T’WAS NOT THE MANGER THAT THEY SOUGHT
FOR IT WAS OUT OF SIGHT
BUT WHAT THEY FOUND WAS JUST THE PLACE
WHERE THEY COULD SPEND THE NIGHT
THE SIMPLE PLACE THAT THEY HAD FOUND
WAS MADE OF MUD AND STICKS
IT STILL SURVIVES ON TO THIS DAY
IT’S NOW CALLED MOTEL 6
THEY SPENT THE NIGHT
AND THEN MOVED ON
TO FIND THE KING OF KINGS
THEY NOW HAD MORE TO GIVE HIM
WITH ALL THEIR PRECIOUS THINGS
THEY WERE RACKED WITH PAIN
AND HAD A CHURNING IN THEIR BOWELS
IT WAS CAUSED BY GUILT YOU KNOW
BECAUSE THEY’D STOLEN THEIR ROOMS TOWELS
IT TOOK TWO WEEKS BUT THEN THEY FOUND
THE MANGER THAT THEY SOUGHT
THEY CAME ON THROUGH THE LITTLE GROUP
TO SHOW THE GIFTS THEY’D BROUGHT
THE FIRST WISE MAN, HE GAVE HIS GIFT
A SMALL CASE MADE OF GOLD
“IT WAS LOVELY TO LOOK AT AND REAL NICE TO TOUCH”
“BUT I BROKE AND T’WAS SOLD”!
HE LAID IT DOWN BEFORE THE CHILD
AND HE MADE A LITTLE SPEECH
HE SAID “MY LORD, YOU’LL SOON GROW UP”
“AND THE WHOLE WORLD YOU WILL TEACH”
FRANKINCENSE WAS THE NEXT GIFT
THAT THE MAGII DID LAY DOWN
“WE’RE NOT SURE WHAT IT’S USED FOR”
SAID THIS WISE MAN WITH A FROWN
THE FINAL GIFT THAT THESE THREE GAVE
WAS MYRRH AND THIS I FEAR
IS SOMETHING WE THINK POOFTAHS
ALL DAB BEHIND THEIR EARS
A BETHLEHEM STAR REPORTER
WAS WRITING IN HIS PAD
“THE CHILD LOOKS JUS LIKE HIM MUM”
“HE DON’T LOOK LIKE HIS DAD!”
THE BABY JESUS ROSE TO SPEAK
AS THE MAGGI LEFT FOR ROME
“MERRY CHRISTMAS GENTLEMEN”
“HAVE A VERY SAFE TRIP HOME”!

With great thanks to Peter Cook and Dudley Moore for the last two lines.
