Download contains:  Piano-vocal score, lyric sheet, mp3 demo & backing tracks


Theme  -  Christmas, nativity, innkeepers’ song


Content  -  Joseph and Mary knock on three innkeepers’ doors.  They’re turned away by the first two, but offered a stable by the third.  Very easy to learn and always popular with this age group!  A great choice for inclusion in a DIY nativity.


Lyrics sample

Rat, tat, rat-a-ta-tat at my window shutters,

Knock! Knock! at my door.

Who’s that tapping at my window shutters,

Knock! Knock! at my door?

Innkeeper 1

There’s no use a-knocking

I’ve no room to spare

And I really do not care.


Please will you help us?

We’re tired and worn.

Have you a place where

Our child can be born?
