I have a gig next week and a member of my band wants me to sing "Christmas Day in the Morning." We all remember someone singing it, we though it was on the Chieftain's Bells of Dublin, but it wasn't. I know it is a Shetland tune and I have sources for that, abcs and The Boys of the Lough, but no lyrics. Are we all remembering wrong? Are there traditional words, or modern ones?

Barbara, on the Chieftains' Bells of Dublin CD there is the song "I saw three ships a sailing" which has the chorus line "on christmas day in the morning". That's where your quite good recollection comes from. If that is actually the song, you'll find the lyrics following this link: click.

Thank you, Wolfgang.

I'm doing that song, too. No, that's not the one I'm trying to find, but it probably is why we thought it was on that album. I am looking for the lyrics that go to the Shetland tune "Christmas Day Ida Morning" that is on, for one source, The Boys in the Lough "Midwinter's Night Dream." The music is in the Fiddler's Fake Book, too, as well as in many internet abc collections, but there are no words in those.

I could be all wrong, but I don't think there are words. to this lovely Shetland tune. Aly Bain describes this as a "listening tune, to be played quite slowly". The B part has a kind of odd rhythm that would be sort of like swallowing a meatball whole to sing. If you catch my drift...

Its certainly not I Saw Three Ships, a totally different tune.
