Subject: Lyr Req: Merry Christmas Land
From: GUEST,Keith from Melville Western Australia
Date: 04 Apr 09 - 01:36 AM

I had 78 record in the 50's and I think it was called "Merry Christmas Land".

Some of the Lyrics were "and every tree's a Christmas tree with presents on for you and me, and every day is christmas day, in Merry Christmas land".

Can anybody help with the rest of the lyrics and is the song still available?
Thank you

Thanks Bruce, That was quick.
It would be good If I could source the actual recording.
At least I now have the full title of the story.

You're welcome 6SEN.

I could not locate a recording. However, the link above will allow you to speak with a librarian in Australia. He/she will be where the archived work is and if anyone could direct you to a recording I expect that's who could. I will keep looking, but don't hold yer breath.
