I'm trying to find harmonies (SATB) for this traditional carol to perform at our folk club & church carol service - any help appreciated.

Can never resist singing "whilst shepherds washed their socks at night" .... what are the rest of the words of this parody?

While shepherds washed their socks by night
All seated round the tub
The Angel of the Lord came down
And they began to scrub

Thanks for the links

The last line of the parody that we sang at school was "and gave them all a scrub"

No angel in our version: "a bar of Sunlight soap came down, and they began to scrub".

While shepherds watched their kidney beans
All boiling in the pot
An angel of the Lord came down
And scoffed the bloody lot.

While shepherds washed their socks by night
And hung them on the line
The angel of the lord came down
And said that pair is mine.

It would be well to specify the tune. Few if any hymns have been set to so many as this one.

According to W. H. Auden, naughty boys in his generation sang

While shepherds watched their flocks by night,
All s******* on the ground,
An angel of the Lord came down
And handed paper round.

He & his brother loved it.

We always used the tune "Winchester Old" for singing "While shepherds washed their socks by night".

But in recent years I have often sung the "real" words to the tune of Gillie Gillie Ossenfeffer.
