Lyrics sample

Once there were three wise men

Watching the night-time sky.

Suddenly three wise men

Saw a star pass by!

So they jumped on the camel train,

Jumped on the camel train,

To find a king!

Then all the three wise men

Followed the shiny star.

They stopped at Bethlehem

Having travelled far.

They said: ‘Hey, hey, is that the place?

Hey, hey, is that the place

To find a king?’


Once There Were Three Wise Men is taken from the mini-musical ‘A Little Nativity’
