Manger
Girl, use my manger for your darling angel

Cozier than my sheep you ought to be, Mary

Showed you my stable for my farming animals

Girl, you must spend the night with these, maybe

Life is one big party when theres children

But whose gonna have a bed for your small son?

Its all good that youre little ones near but

Cant find a room crud! Water broke and now what?

You can rush out to the place I mentioned

Spend the night save the money for the rent and

Keep him there through your entire vacation

You wont need reservations my barns pretty vacant

Girl, use my manger for your darling baby

Over where Bo Peep would want to be, Mary

Sure, use my stable its a charming place and

Girl, youll make friends with cows and sheep, maybe

Sure its clean and thats how you should be treated

Though youd better get another one in Egypt

Ruler of Bethlehem is conceited - take it from me kid;

If he comes, beat it!

But hes not gonna come tonight; theres no problem

Not till talkin to some wise men; Herods so dumb

But the free room that I have for you is ho hum

He could search for so long and still never see your son

Girl, use my manger for your darling baby

Clothe Him with white sheets or else hell freeze, Mary

Showed you my stable what are all these angels?

Girl, I might end up on my knees, maybe

Girl, theres probably gonna be a crowd

So let me see your child He must be sent from up above

And He appears to be so tender and so nice and friendly

I think Hes givin me a hug

Girl, theres probably gonna be a crowd

So, let me see your child He must be sent from up above

And He appears to be so tender and so like the shepherds

Im thankin Heaven He has come

Tonight its one big party cause its Gods son

But youd better watch your back w
