Excuse me, Mr Cow but I'm trying to sew. If you want to sit round here, you couldn't just sit there could you? So nobody else tramples on the curtains? The alternative is a fate worse than Old Macdonald's farm [Two face] [Snigger] [Two face]

Well, the curtains are coming on a treat, thanks Babushka. Fairy Godmother, I bet you've got us some good accessories there. Someone pass the Musical Director a paint brush and this lovely tin of blue paint, we might as well make use of him as there's not much call for music at the moment.

And I found some lovely lampshades that will match the rustic theme of the living room

Why thank-you your highness (mother of the King and all that), glad to be of service. We do anything we can to help the babes through their first few days as humans. [Smile]

We really could do with Joseph putting up a few shelves and building a stylish brick fireplace, but I think he's nipped out to deliver the census forms. I'll just get busy with these stencils and create an original abstract design on the walls.

Mary, attentive mother as ever, takes the babies from their respective sleeping places and retired behind the haystack with them. Well, they deserve a supper-break too! She returns and places the sweetly sleeping Jesus gently in the manger. She sadly has to wind Lavinia thoroughly, and deal serenely with a little projectile vomit down the back of her blue dress, before placing her gently down in the water trough which Joseph so thoughtfully drained and filled with hay earlier in the day.

This place is looking good. Great work, chaps. I need a rest, though, after all that stencilling. If anyone else comes to visit, don't let them wake the babies, will you? They can put any presents on the new shelf over there.

[still in fits of giggles over Cow coming in as Whale

Because I can't sing this with my own children this year, I'll stand off-stage right and softly sing it to Baby Jesus with imagined acoustic guitar accompaniment]


Pastores a Belen
Vamos con allegria
Que a nacido ya
El Hijo de Maria

Allí! Allí! Nos espera Jesús!
Allí! Allí! nos espera Jesús!
Ya vuemos pues turrones y miel
Para ofrecerle Al Niño Manuel

Vamos, vamos; vamos y ver!
Vamos y ver al recien nacido!
Vamos y ver Al Niño Manuel.

O Niño Celestial
Bendice al los pastores
Que corren al portal
Cantando tus loores.

Allí! Allí! Nos espera Jesús!
Allí! Allí! nos espera Jesús!
Ya vuemos pues turrones y miel
Para ofrecerle Al Niño Manuel.

Vamos, vamos; vamos y ver!
Vamos y ver al recien nacido!
Vamos y ver Al Niño Manuel.

[the guitar fades sweetly into the night]






Shepherds to Bethlehem
Let us go with joy
To the already born infant
The son of Mary

Chorus:

There, there! Jesus waits for us!
(repeat)
Let us take turrones (spanish candy) and honey
To offer to the baby boy Emmanuel.

Let's go! Let's go! Let's go and see!
Let's go and see the recently born one;
Let's go and see the Baby Boy Emmanuel.

Oh Heavenly Baby Boy
Bless the shepherds
That come to the door
Singing your praises.

(repeat chorus)

Walks through door of stable, looking mightily refreshed.

Posted the census forms, Mary!

Looks around.

Like what you've done, ladies!

However, it's clear that we need to get some furniture in here too. Let's see... a nice stack of shelves ought to do the trick. And then maybe a wardrobe for my dear wife to keep her charming garments in...

There is much sawing, filing, sanding and hammering.

A-ha! All done.

What do you people think? Should I give them a quick lick of paint? Maybe some blue would be nice. It does seem to be the colour of the moment.

Liberally splashes blue paint all over his new creations.

Well, it's all in a day's work for Joseph Carpenter. And now I'm going back to sleep...

[Sheep 3 notices that the Eeyore is grey, not blue, and gazes at it adoringly.]

(goes over to the Eeyore)
Hay, Cous!! Watchin' doin' here? Come to adore the new born king? Well, let me tell, you, he's somethin' else! Hay, aren't you,.... What is this? It's fake! This ain't my cous! It's stuffed! Well, some can be real, some can be imitation. I am always the real thing! Hay, what a great idea! Be back in just a bit, I think I saw a toy store with a Donkey in the window! Just the thing for Jesus to have! Here, we'll just let Lavinia have this old Eeyore here....
(Donkey puts the Eeyore in Lavinia's crib. It almost makes her seem, like, normal!)
