HOLLY JOLLY MAN

(with apologies to Donovan)

Christmas Eve I could not sleep
Crept downstairs to take a peek
To find that he was by the tree
Laughing oh so merrily
Twas then that the Holly Jolly Man
Came with his bag of toys
Then when the Holly Jolly Man
Came bringing bags of toys

“Holly Jolly, Holly Jolly, Holly Jolly, Jolly,” he sang (3x)

(instrumental bridge)

Memories of Christmas past
Candlelight his spell is cast
Down the years without a pause
The “ho ho ho” of Santa Claus
Tis then that the Holly Jolly Man
Comes singing songs of joy
Then when the Holly Jolly Man
Comes singing songs of joy

“Holly Jolly, Holly Jolly, Holly Jolly, Jolly,” he sang
“Holly Jolly, Holly Jolly, Holly Jolly, Holly Jolly…”
“Holly Jolly, Holly Jolly, Holly Jolly, Jolly,” he sang
“Holly Jolly, Holly Jolly, Holly Jolly, Jolly,” he sang
Here comes the Jelly Belly Man and he’s singing songs of joy
“Jelly Belly, Jelly Belly, Jelly Belly, Belly,” he sang
“Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas,” he sang
“Holly Jolly, Holly Jolly, Holly Jolly, Jolly,” he sang… (repeat ad lib. to fade)
