The casts of The Muppet Show and Sesame Street sing the song in A Muppet Family Christmas.

"I Saw Three Ships" is a traditional and popular Christmas carol from England. A variant of its parent tune "Greensleeves", the earliest printed version of the song is from the 17th century, possibly Derbyshire, and was also published by William B. Sandys in 1833.

Lyrics

I saw three ships come sailing in
On Christmas Day on Christmas Day
I saw three ships come sailing in
On Christmas Day in the morning
And what was in those ships all three
On Christmas Day on Christmas Day
And what was in those ships all three
On Christmas Day in the morning
The Virgin Mary and Christ were there
On Christmas Day on Christmas Day
The Virgin Mary and Christ were there
On Christmas Day in the morning
