Silent night

Colne, Lancs
all is calm?


Ah, but this one is particularly international. Sounds as good in German as it does in English. Was rather hoping Andy in Sig or BTFB would chime in with the Deutsch version.

i'd like to if people wouldn't keep singing the most annoying carol there is!

Someone HAD to spoil it didn't they? We'd just about got away with Waffley's off key mewling, we could have finished our Christmas carol, and shown what a wholly organised and tuneful bunch we were, but no. Along comes Trusty with his bah humbug interruption and ruins the whole thing. Huff.


What about the German +(original!) version?

'...Stille Nacht! Heilige Nacht!
Alles schläft; einsam wacht
Nur das traute heilige Paar.
Holder Knab im lockigten Haar,
Schlafe in himmlischer Ruh!
Schlafe in himmlischer Ruh!'

Silent night? Unholy fright!
All is calm, what a sight?
Office Party, all drunken and wild,
Beer being slurped, both bitter and mild
Slumped in bibulous peace
Slumped in bibulous peace

Silent night? Unholy fright!
Managers quaking at the sight
Poppers and streamers from our H. R
Drunken hosts singing Alleluia!
You’ll ne’er get home ‘til morn
You’ll ne’er get home ‘til morn

Silent night? Unholy fright!
Bums pictured in copier’s light
Empties strewn all over the place
Stockings dependant from lights with grace

If you're going to do the German version, do the lot..........

Our german language class used to sing it.

1. Stille Nacht! Heil'ge Nacht!
Alles schläft; einsam wacht
Nur das traute hoch heilige Paar.
Holder Knab' im lockigen Haar,
Schlafe in himmlischer Ruh! (weider)

2. Stille Nacht! Heil'ge Nacht!
Gottes Sohn, o wie lacht
Lieb' aus deinem göttlichen Mund,
Da uns schlägt die rettende Stund'.
Jesus in deiner Geburt!

3. Stille Nacht! Heil'ge Nacht!
Die der Welt Heil gebracht,
Aus des Himmels goldenen Höhn,
Uns der Gnaden Fülle läßt sehn,
Jesum in Menschengestalt!

4. Stille Nacht! Heil'ge Nacht!
Wo sich heut alle Macht
Väterlicher Liebe ergoß,
Und als Bruder huldvoll umschloß
Jesus die Völker der Welt!

5. Stille Nacht! Heil'ge Nacht!
Lange schon uns bedacht,
Als der Herr vom Grimme befreit
In der Väter urgrauer Zeit
Aller Welt Schonung verhieß!

6. Stille Nacht! Heil'ge Nacht!
Hirten erst kundgemacht
Durch der Engel Alleluja,
Tönt es laut bei Ferne und Nah:
"Jesus der Retter ist da!"
