about

An uplifting Yuletide rags-to-riches story about a carol-singing barnacle called Sally.

lyrics

LYRICS:

Sally was a singing barnacle: A treat at Christmas time
Sally knew her carols off by heart – Her voice was so sublime!

When Sally sang Joy to the World, the oceans wept for joy
She melted every heart of every bivalve girl and boy

Sally lived upon a humpback whale: The whale’s name was John
John woke early on a Christmas Eve, and saw that Sally was gone!

“Oh, have you seen my barnacle?” became the Whale’s lament
“We used to sing in harmony until my Sally went!”

“Oh Sally! Oh Sally! You sang like an angel
“Oh Sally! Oh Sally! Did I scare you away?

“Oh Sally! I’d love to hear Away in a Manger
“Oh Sally! So please come home for Christmas Day!”

(Guitar Instrumental)

John was all alone on Christmas Day. He slumped back in his chair
By a miracle the doorbell rang, and Sal was standing there!

“Oh, John I’m sad I left you to become a megastar
“When money goes to your head, you forget who your friends are!”

“Oh Sally! Oh Sally! You sing like an angel
“Oh Sally! Oh Sally! Oh please won’t you stay?

“Oh Sally! I’d love to hear Away in a Manger?
“Oh Sally! I’m glad you’re home for Christmas Day!”

“Oh Sally! Oh Sally! You sing like an angel
“Oh Sally! Oh Sally! Oh please won’t you stay?

“Oh Sally! I’d love to hear Away in a Manger?
“Oh don’t be a stranger on Christmas Day!”
