So dd has been practising for her nativity play, so far we've got

Little donkey, little donkey
On a dusty road
Going to keep ......

Anyone know the rest of the words? Dd's version seems to blend into Baa, baa black sheep and I know that's not right!!

little donkey

Little donkey, little donkey
On a dusty road
Got to keep on plodding onwards
With the precious load.
Been a long time little donkey
Thro' the winter's night.
Don't give up now little donkey
Bethlehem's in sight.

Ring out those bells tonight
Bethlehem, Bethlehem.
Follow the star tonight
Bethlehem, Bethlehem.

Little donkey, little donkey
Had a heavy day
Little donkey carry Mary
Safely on her way.

Little donkey, little donkey
Journey's end is near
There are wisemen waiting for a
Sign to bring them here.

Do not falter, little donkey
There's a star ahead
It will guide you, little donkey
To a cattle shed

Ring out those bells tonight
Bethlehem, Bethlehem.
Follow that star tonight
Bethlehem, Bethlehem.

Little donkey, little donkey
Had a heavy day
Little donkey carry Mary
Safely on her way.
Little donkey carry Mary
Safely on her way.

Going to keep on plodding onwards with your heavy load.

It goes a bit hazy now...

Ring out those bells tonight
Bethlehem
Bethlehem

Er that's all I can remember!

Thanks crutchlow! We will be singing the correct version tomorrow - I knew the little donkey didn't have 3 bags full for the boy in the lake!!

..that was my favourite Christmas song when I was around 5 - I still remember exactly where I was standing at school when we sang it for the first time..

..not telling my family as it would probably then pop-up on my play-list at my funeral !!!

Aww love little donkey! Xxx

At least you worked out what song you needed lyrics for. Last year DH and I kept wondering why DS was singing 'To Birmingham we go, to Birmingham we go, ee yi yippee oh to Birmingham we go' with a tune that vaguely resembled 'Farmer in the Dell'

Passes tissues to Crotch, (well that sounds wrong), I haven't got many nativity plays left either. [big sniff]
