Good King Wenceslaus last looked out
on the feast of Steven
as the slow ray round about
deep and crisp and crispy.
Brightly showed the boot last night
on the nasty cruel
Henly Hall and David Lloyd
Betty Grable, too.

John: Hello! This is John speaking with his voice. We're all very happy to be able to talk to you like this on this little bit of plastic. This record reaches you at the end of a really gear year for us, and it's all due to you.When we made our first record on Parlophone toward the end of 1962, we hoped everyone would like what we'd already been our type of music for several years already! But we had no idea of all the gear things in store for us. It all happened really when "Please Please Me" became a No.1 hit and after that well... "Can th' blimeys, he 'tha know." Our biggest thrill of the year, well, I suppose it must have been top of the bill at the London Palladium, and then only a couple of days later, being invited to take part in the royal variety show. This time last year we were all dead chopped because "Love Me Do" got into top 20 and we can't believe Rita that so many things happened in between already. Just before I pass you over to Paul, I'd like to say thank you to all the Beatles people who have written to me during the year and everyone who sent me gifts and cards on my birthday, which I'm trying to forget, in October! I'd love to reply personally to everyone, but I just haven't enough pens. In the meantime...

Garry crimble to you
Garry mimble to you
Getty bable, dear Christmas
happy birthday me too.

Paul: This is Paul here. Everything that John said goes for me, too, especially the bit about birthday cards and the parcels, 'cause all our home and offices got stacks of mail last June -Ow!- when it was my birthday. Anyway, we're all dead pleased by the way you've treated us in 1963. And we'll try to do everything we can to please you with the type of songs we write and record next year. Oh, year! Somebody asked us if we still like jelly beans. Well, we used to like 'em, in fact, we loved 'em. And we said so one of the papers, you see. Ever since then, been getting 'em in boxes, packets and crates. Anyway, we've gone right off jelly beans, you see. But we still like peppermint creams, chocolate drops and dolly mixes, and all that sort of thing, don't we?

John: Yes, yes, oh yes.

Paul: Well... lots of people asked us what we enjoy best, you see. Concerts and television, or recording. We like doing stage shows, 'cause it's, you know, it's great to hear an audience enjoying themselves. But the thing we like best, I think so anyway, is going into the recording studio -lovely, love that-

John: Yeah, we enjoy that very kindly.

Paul: ... to make new records, which is what we been doin' all day before we started in this special message.Well, what we like to hear most is one of our songs, you know, taking sharp in a recordind studio. Ah... one of the ones what John and I have written. And then listening to the tapes afterwards to hear how it worked out, you see. Well, I'm running over my time and people are telling me to stop... by Ringo...

All: Stop! Stop! Stop shouting those animals!

Paul: So, I'll finish. Now, with a wishing everyone happy Krimble and merry new year, and especially all the ones who paid the subscription.

Ja, das wird uns danke schon
und denn gruss von even
ja, denn gruss von even schon
ja, das wird wunderschon, boy
danke schon.
Ja, Ringo!

Ringo: Hello! Ringo here. As you know, I was the last member to join the Beatles. I started to drums in the groups in 1962. I've been in a couple of other groups...

Paul: Oh, just wish the people merry happy - go on - for Christmas, Christmas.

Ringo: Merry happy new year - and folks - Happy Christmas and may, may everything you wish be granted.

Paul: Sing, sing Wenceslaus, King Wenceslaus...

Well, good king Wenceslaus looked out (oh ho!)
on the feast of Stephen (hey!)
when the snow was on the ground (yeah!)
deep and crisp and even. (oh yeah!)

George: Thank you, Ringo. Thank you. Ringo. We'll phone you. I'm George Harrison. Nobody else has said anything yet about our club secretaries. Ann Collingham and Bettina Rose. Not to Mention Frieda Kelly in Liverpool.

All: Good 'ol frienda!

George: So, on behalf of us all, I'd just like to say a great big thank you to Ann, Bettina, and Freida for all the hard work they've done. And we just hope you can go on pleasing you...

John: Keep screaming!

George: ... for a long time. 'Cause to, 'cause to get your reaction to our records that really matters! And I'd just like to say...

Brightly was the shown that night
though the winter cruel
when a poke pie came inside
gabbing winter cruel.

Rudolph, the red nosed reindeer (ho!)
had a very shiny nose (a shiny nose!)
when everybody picked it...

ha ha ha ha....
Oh yeah! Oh!

Rudolph, the red nosed Ringo (Rudolph!)
had a very shiny nose.

All: Merry Christmas, everybody!
