A winter holiday carol adapted from original text by Tom Clarke for unaccompanied mixed choir (SATB) with piano reduction for rehearsal only

 

There's a Man in the Moon and he's singing our tune,
for he thinks that it's Christmas* Day.
As we follow along, he keeps singing our song,
from a World so far away.

There are chords floating round in a jolly state,
and some notes make him blue in the face,
but best of all there's a tune that he knows,
and we sing it on Christmas* Day.

[Chorus:]

Let's dream of the Moon, made of dark green cheese,
all under a foot of snow.
Let's send candles and cards to the Man in the Moon,
and some holly and mistletoe.

It's Winter time again here on Earth,
and frost is on the ground.
A dear old man sings to us from far away
in a World so white and round.

Now the Man in the Moon sends us cheese before noon,
for he thinks that it's Christmas* Day.
He sends us cheese in a tin which a spaceman brings in
from a World so far away.

There are chords floating round in a jolly state,
and some notes that are blue as the sky,
but best of all there's green cheese in a tin,
and we eat it on Christmas* Day.

Repeat Chorus.

There's a Man in the Moon and he's waving his spoon,
for he thinks that it's Christmas* Day,
as we sing him our song, he follows along,
from a World so far away.

There's green cheese going round in a smelly state,
from a spaceship painted red like a sleigh,
but best of all there's a tune that we love,
and we sing it on Christmas* Day.

*“New Years Day” may be substituted for “Christmas Day” as alternate text.

Nice rendition here by The Cascadian Chorale
