  • Have you seen the mistletoe
    It fills the night with kisses
    Have you seen the bright blue star
    It fills your heart with wishes
    Have you seen the candlelight
    It shines from every window
    Have you seen the moon above
    It lights the sky in silver

    Green is in the mistletoe
    And red is in the holly
    Silver in the stars above
    That shine on everybody
    Gold is in the candlelight
    And crimson in the embers
    White is in the winter night
    That everyone remembers

    Have you heard the boys outside
    When all the girls are skating
    Have you heard their sweet hearts cry
    For all this time they're waiting

    Green is in the mistletoe
    And red is in the holly
    Silver in the stars above
    That shine on everybody
    Gold is in the candlelight
    And crimson in the embers
    White is in the winter night
    That everyone remembers

    Have you seen the children playing
    Tiny hands are frozen
    Have you seen them hurry home
    When suddenly its snowing

    Green is in the mistletoe
    And red is in the holly
    Silver in the stars above
    That shine on everybody
    Gold is in the candlelight
    And crimson in the embers
    White is in the winter night
    That everyone remembers

    Have you heard that bells are ringing
    Ringing out their story
    Have you heard the choir singing
    Glory, glory glory Writer/s: EITHNE NI BHRAONAIN, NICKY RYAN, ROMA RYAN
