Christmas on the Station - Australian Christmas Carol

There’s gonna be dancing and singing,
At the old homestead tonight,
Gonna be carols ringing,
Through the warm Australian night,
Dance on the homestead verandah
To an old time fiddle tune,
There’s gonna be an old time party
With Christmas coming soon.

 Oh we wont have no sleigh ride
We’ll go swimming in the creek
But all the kids and relations
Who are staying for a week.
The campfire’s blazing brightly
Steak on the barbecue,
Welcome all the neighbors in
Were putting on a do.

There’s gonna be dancing and singing
At the old homestead tonight
Gonna be carols ringing,
Through the warm Australian night,
Dance on the homestead verandah,
To an old time fiddle tune,
There’s gonna be an old time party,
With Christmas coming soon

Ohh the kids are hanging stockings,
And there’s one for me and you,
Santa’s wearing moleskins,
And a shirt of faded blue,
The kitchen tables loaded,
With ham and chicken too,
Welcome all the neighbors in,
Were puttin on a do.

There’s gonna be dancing and singing,
At the old homestead tonight,
Gonna be carols ringing,
Through the warm Australian night,
Dance on the homestead verandah,
To an old time fiddle tune,
There’s gonna be an old time party,
With Christmas coming soon.
Ohh there’s gonna be an old time party,
With Christmas coming soon.
