Tumbleweed Tuesday -- The Friendly Beasts

Merry Christmas!

The Friendly Beasts
sung by Tennessee Ernie Ford
"The Friendly Beasts" is a traditional Christmas song about the gifts that a donkey, a cow, a sheep, a camel, and a dove gave to Jesus at the Nativity. The song seems to have originated in 12th-century France, set to the melody of the Latin song Orientis Partibus. The current English words were written by Robert Davis (1881-1950) in the 1920s.--From Wikipedia
