to the tune of "Jungleland"
In the little town of Bethlehem
Mary looks so fine
She and Joseph rode their B.C. '16 camels
Over the Jersey state line.
She's givin' birth in the barn tonight
While Joseph takes his stand
With cows and donkeys and sheep and goats
Down in Mangerland.
When they pulled into Bethlehem
There was no room at the inn
So Joseph opened the stable door
And told her, "Yo, Mary, climb in."
Since God got Mary pregnant
Joseph plays in a rock & roll band
While the shepherds get restless
and so do the sheep
Out in Mangerland.
Outside the snow's on fire
In a real death waltz
Between Nazareth and Galilee
And the wise men down here
Don't know nothing at all
They just leave presents under the tree.
And the angel spoke,
"Lo, the change was made uptown
And the Big Man has joined the band
So pour out a little wine on the stable floor
