My wife wanted to know the lyrics for "Do You Hear What I Hear?" - so, of course, I looked in the Digital Tradition. The song, filename[ DOTOUHER, is a bit discombobulated:Here's the DT Version:

    DO YOU HEAR WHAT I HEAR

    Do you hear what I hear, said the night wind to the little lamb
    Do you hear what I hear, high up in the sky `little lamb
    A song, a song, high above the trees
    With a voice as big as the sea, with a voice as big as the sea.

    Do you see what I see, said the little lamb to the shepherd boy
    Do you see what I see, high up In the sky shepherd boy?
    A star, a star, shining in the night
    With a tall as big as a kite, with a tail as big as a kite.

    Do you know what I know, said the shepherd boy to the mighty king
    Do you know what I know, In your palace warm mighty king?
    A child, a child shivers in the cold,
    Let us bring him silver and gold, let us bring him silver and gold.

    Listen to what I say, said the king to the people everywhere
    Listen to what I say, pray for peace, people everywhere,
    The child the child, sleeping in the night
    He will bring us goodness and light, He will bring us goodness and light.

Corrected Version:



DO YOU HEAR WHAT I HEAR?
(Noel Regney and Gloria Shayne)

Said the night wind to the little lamb:
Do you see what I see?
Way up in the sky, little lamb,
Do you see what I see?
A star, a star
Dancing in the night,
With a tail as big as a kite.
With a tail as big as a kite.

Said the little lamb to the shepherd boy:
Do you hear what I hear?
Ringing through the sky, shepherd boy,
Do you hear what I hear?
A song, a song
High above the tree,
With a voice as big as the sea.
With a voice as big as the sea.

Said the shepherd boy to the mighty king:
Do you know what I know?
In your palace warm, mighty king,
Do you know what I know?
A Child, a Child
Shivers in the cold,
Let us bring Him silver and gold.
Let us bring Him silver and gold.

Said the king to the people ev'rywhere:
Listen to what I say!
Pray for peace, people ev'rywhere,
Listen to what I say!
The Child, the Child
Sleeping in the night.
He will bring us goodness and light.
He will bring us goodness and light.


(Noel Regney and Gloria Shayne, copyright 1962)
