We wish you a Merry Christmas
We wish you a Merry Christmas
We wish you a Merry Christmas
And a Happy New Year

Good tidings we bring
To you and your kin
We wish you a Merry Christmas
And a Happy New Year

Now bring us a figgy pudding
Now bring us a figgy pudding
Now bring us a figgy pudding
And bring some out here

Good tidings we bring
To you and your kin
We wish you a Merry Christmas
And a Happy New Year

And we won't go until we've got some
And we won't go until we've got some
And we won't go until we've got some
So bring some out here

Good tidings we bring
To you and your kin
We wish you a Merry Christmas
And a Happy New Year

The song reflects the Christmas tradition of showering gifts on the people who wandered from house to house, singing Christmas carols.

Figgy Pudding is also know as Plum Pudding or Christmas Pudding. It features figs, prunes, molasses, walnuts and spices, and is sometimes made flambeed.
