Lyrics sample -

Bethlehem is calling

Aross a dark blue night.

(Bethlehem is calling)

Bethlehem is calling!

You’ve got to go tonight!

(Bethlehem is calling)

Starlight is leading you

To somewhere out of sight.

Bethlehem is calling

Across a dark blue night.

Listen! An angel voice

Said you must leave your sheep.

(Listen! Listen!)

Stand up! Now rub your eyes!

You have no time for sleep.
