"The Beatles' Seventh Christmas Record"

[J:] Now you lads, will you just shout Happy Christmas for us
For this tape, eh?

[?:] Happy Christmas?

[J:] Yeah. Go on. One, two, three

[All:] Happy Christmas!

[J:] Thank you. Same to you. Ha, ha. Happy Christmas

[Yoko:] ... Christmas, John, and I see you strolling in
Ascot Garden with your wife, Yoko, but well, do you
Have any special thoughts at, for Christmas?

[J:] Well, Yoko, it is Christmas and my special thoughts
Of course, turn towards eating

[Y:] Ha! Ha! Ha! All right. So, eating. Well, what do you like to eat?

[J:] Well, I'd like some cornflakes prepared by Parisian
Hands. And I'd like it blessed by Hari Krishna Mantra

[G:] "Yes, have a wonderful Christmas
Have a jolly new year
Make sure that Christmas...
... comes once a year."
Yes, Happy New Year. All the best
This is George Harrison saying Happy Christmas. Happy
Christmas. Christmas. Christmas. Happy. Happy...

[R singing:]
Ooh, good evening to you ladies
Good evening to you gentlemen
Happy to be here
Good evening to you gentlemen
I fear, I fear, I fear
Good evening to you one and all
I hope you will enjoy
The coming sports day of your life
Is mama's little boy

[Y:] So, how do you like the garden here?

[J:] I think it's simply splendid. I'm overwhelmed by its
Sanctuary

[Y:] So, you don't mind these high gates and things and the walls?

[J:] Oh, I've always loved the high walls. The Elizabethan high
Wall is something I've always loved. You see

[Y:] Yes

[J:] Lady

[P singing:]
This is to wish you, a merry, merry Christmas
This is to wish you just a merry, merry year
This say to wish you just a happy, happy new year
This is to wish you a merry, merry, merry new year

[P:] I'd like to say that I hope everybody listening to this
Has a very happy time at Christmas and has a good
Fortunate, lucky New Year. And a good time to be had by
All

[P singing:]
"Merry Christmas!
Mm, this is to wish you a me-merry, merry Christmas
This is to wish you a ha-ha-happy new year."

[J:] How do you see your place in the ...eh...the seventies to
Come? We've had the swinging sixties, and I was wondering, Mrs. Lennon, how you
Saw your place in the seventies?

[Y:] I think it'll be a quiet, peaceful seventies, hopefully, you know

[J:] So you think there's gonna be peace, do you?

[Y:] Yes, and freedom

[J:] I see

[Y:] Freedom of mind. And everything

[J:] I see. Really nice

[Y:] Everybody will just be flying around, you know

[J:] Ah, everybody will just be flying around, you see. D'you
Understand that?

[Y:] The air's so crisp and all that. And just, there's
Something about it, very delicate...

[J singing:]
Deep and crisp and even
Brightly shone the moon that night
On the misty cruel
Good King Wenceslas last look out
On the feast of....

[Y:] ... and it's sort of, ah, like a strange magic, you know
Just slowing down the process of our thinking. Anyway
It's just really beautiful

[J, Y singing:]
Happy Christmas - (Happy Christmas)
Happy Christmas - (Happy Christmas)
Happy Christmas - (Happy Christmas)
Happy New Year

[J:] Take two

[J, Y singing:]

Happy, happy, happy, happy, happy Christmas - (Happy Christmas)
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh, happy Christmas - (hah-ah-ah-ah-ah)
Oh-oh-oh-oh, happy Christmas

John, Yoko
John, happy Christmas
It's warm and nice and comfy in Ascot
Ac-dc lights

[Y:] Let's put the lights on the trees

[J:] Alright, dear. You pass me the light and I'll string it on the tree.
(Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha...)

[J:] I'd like a big teddy!
[Y:] I'll get you a big, pink teddy bear
[J:] Oh, thank you, mummy
[Y:] And be a good boy, John
[J:] Oh, yes, mummy, I will. As long as you get me a teddy bear
[Y:] A big, pink teddy bear
[J:] And a train set
[Y:] American train set then?
[J:] And a man on the moon that goes on the moon and dance on the moon
[Y:] An ice cream moon then?

Lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and
