Long-time fan Sebastian Singer wondered where he could get his hands on the lyrics to the RSC’s Reduced Time-Saving Christmas Carol that we sing on The Reduced Shakespeare Company Christmas. Since the lyrics aren’t published anywhere else, we thought we might as well make them available to everyone here. You can sing along: it’s Track 10 on the RSC Christmas CD, “Carol Complaint Line”. Enjoy!
JINGLE BELLS KING WENCESLAS
FA-LA-LA-LA, THE FIRST NOEL
THE OX AND LAMB KEPT TIME AS GOOD AS THEY SMELLED
O CHRISTMAS TREE OF BETHLEHEM
O SILENT O HOLY NIGHT THE HERALD ANGELS SING
AWAY IN A MANGER BRIGHT….
HALLELUJAH! AND HANUKKAH!
SHAVE AND A HAIRCUT, TWO BITS!
