PnF Cast Singing WeWishYouAMerryChristmas
The cast of Phineas and Ferb sings the song at the end of "A Phineas and Ferb Family Christmas".
Date: 16th Cent.

"We Wish You a Merry Christmas" is a popular secular sixteenth-century English carol from the West Country of England. The origin of this Christmas carol lies in the English tradition where wealthy people of the community gave Christmas treats to the carolers on Christmas Eve such as "figgy puddings" that were very much like modern day Christmas puddings. It is one of the few traditional holiday carols that makes mention of the New Year celebration. The simple chorus and holiday greetings have made it a popular finale to many holiday specials over the years.

Lyrics

We wish you a Merry Christmas
We wish you a Merry Christmas
We wish you a Merry Christmas
And a Happy New Year
[Chorus]
Good tidings to you
Wherever you are
Good tidings for Christmas
And a Happy New Year
Oh bring us some figgy pudding
Oh bring us some figgy pudding
Oh bring us some figgy pudding
And bring it right here
[Chorus]
We won't go until we get some
We won't go until we get some
We won't go until we get some
So bring some right here
[Chorus]
[First verse repeated]
