Song The Friendly Beasts – Peter, Paul & Mary

Was humbly born in a stable rude.
And the friendly beasts around him stood
Jesus our brother, kind and good.

“;I,”; said the donkey, all shaggy and brown,
“;I carried his mother up hill and down
I carried his mother to Bethlehem town.”;
“;I,”; said the donkey, all shaggy and brown.

“;I,”; said the cow, all white and red
“;I gave him my manger for his bed
I gave him my hay to pillow his head.”;
“;I,”; said the cow, all white and red

“;I,”; said the sheep, with curly horn,
“;I gave him my wool for a blanket warm
He wore my coat on Christmas morn.”;
“;I,”; said the sheep, with curly horn.

“;I,”; said the dove, from the rafters high
“;I cooed him to sleep so he would not cry
We cooed him to sleep, my love and I
“;I,”; said the dove, from the rafters high.
