Hear the sleigh bells ring ring ring, Hear the choirboys sing sing sing Ding dong ding dong Ding dong ding dong Ding dong ding dong Bell Snow falls cold but makes a blanket our winter world Softens shapes with gentle silence as the year grows old; Underneath it's icy beauty, joined but hardly seen, Holly and the ivy celebrate the Christmas Queen I'm a prickly holly tree and you're an ivy leaf Holly leaves are sharp but they are tender underneath. Twine yourself around my branches, clothes me all in green and You will melt my winter heart: I'll be your Christmas Queen I'll be your Christmas Queen I'll be your Christmas Queen I've been waiting all year long to be your Christmas Queen Hear the sleigh bells ring ring ring, Hear the choirboys sing sing sing Ding dong ding dong Ding dong ding dong Ding dong ding dong Bell Holly, ivy, evergreen to scent the Christmas air; Bound together closely, we can give our love to share. Past and present and the future, crowned in ivy green and I will wear a holly wreath to be your Christmas Queen I'll be your Christmas Queen I'll be your Christmas Queen I've been waiting all year long to be your Christmas Queen (soon the verses will be drowned, smothered by our wall of sound) Hear the sleigh bells ring ring ring, Hear the choirboys sing sing sing Ding dong ding dong Ding dong ding dong Ding dong ding dong Bell

Recorded in Wood Green, the choir's part was done in an hour and a half and they got paid in lollipops. Thank you to them for turing up; this little EP was a lifesaver for me.
