The Hymns and Carols of Christmas

Mary Had A Boy child

West Indian

Mary had a boy child, Jesus Christ
He's a born on Christmas Day, do, do, di, do,
Mary had a boy child, Jesus Christ
He's a born on Christmas Day.

Long time ago in Bethlehem
So the Holy Bible say,
Mary's boy child, Jesus Christ
Was born on Christmas Day.
