Mary's Boy Child

Harry Belafonte

 Long time ago in Bethle(Am) hem, so the Holy Bible say,
 Mary's boy child Jesus (Am) Christ, was born on Christmas Day.

 Hark, now hear the angels sing, a new king born today, and
 man will live for ever (Am)more, because of Christmas day.

Final Chorus
 Trumpets sound and angels sing, listen to what they say, that
 man will live for ever(Am)more, because of Christmas Day.

While shepherds watch their flocks by night, They saw a bright new shining star,
They thought they heard a choir sing, the music seemed to come from afar.


Now Joseph and his wife, Mary, came to Bethlehem that night,
they found no place to bear her child, not a single room was in sight.


By and by they find a little nook in a stable all forlorn,
and in a manger cold and dark, Mary's little boychils was born.

(Final Chorus)
