Hi,

I'm looking for a chrstmassy themed song that incorporates Robin Hood.
There is actually one in the digitrad song list thingy, but it's about three miles long. If anyone knows anything shorter...

I just have a bit of a Robin Hood theme going but I want something a bit seasonal for the christmas session!!

cheers,

Laura

I'm curious. Which Robin Hood song in the DT deals with Christmas? It's not apparent from the titles.

It's called 'Robin Hood's Birth and Breeding' and I thought it would be a variation on The Birth of Robin Hood (which I already sing) but it does have a bit of a christmas theme.... lots of things happening just before christmas etc...

Haha exactly.
I've nothing against long songs, but I don't want to inflict MY singing on anyone for that long!

Robin got run over by a reindeer,
Coming home from Sherwood Christmas Eve.
You can say there's no such thing as Santa,
But as for me and Friar Tuck, we believe

Here comes Robin Hood,
Here comes Robin Hood,
Right down Robin Hood Lane,
Here he comes with all his merry men,
Wearing mail of chain...

Haved you tried various versions of the Mummers' Play, which was often performed at Xmas and in which Robin Hood would frequently be a character? He would introduce himself in a bit of doggerel like all the Mummers people. You might find the sort of rhyme you are looking for in one of those, and perhaps set it to an appropriate tune if you want to sing it.

Art,
^^
Here's a few verses to go with the chorus:

All the outlaws down in Sherwood
Have switched their green wool tights to black.
Little John is on a bender,
Trying to find Santa and his pack.

We found Robin Christmas morning,
Lying face down in the snow.
He had hoofprints on his forehead
What an awful way for Robin Hood to go.

Lady Marian is crying,
And Will Scarlet's quite distressed
It's not Christmas without Robin
Nottingham's not really at its best.

Friar Tuck will do the requiem
"Dies Irae" will be sung
The gallant men who marched with Robin
Now will march with their bowstrings unstrung

Padre
