Little Donkey

Donate to Marie Curie Cancer Care

Little donkey, little donkey

On the dusty road

Got to keep on plodding onwards

With your precious load

Been a long time little donkey

Through the winter’s night

Don’t give up now little donkey

Bethlehem’s in sight.


Chorus: Ring out those bells tonight

Bethlehem, Bethlehem

Follow the stars tonight,

Bethlehem, Bethlehem.

Little donkey, little donkey,

had a heavy day

Little donkey carry Mary

safely on her way.


Little donkey, little donkey,

On the dusty road.

There are wise men, waiting for a

Sign to bring them here.

Do not falter, little donkey,

There’s a star ahead.

It will guide you, little donkey,

To a cattle shed.
