Lyrics

Joy to the world! The Lord is come:
Let earth receive her King.
Let ev'ry heart prepare Him room,
And heaven and nature sing,
And heaven and nature sing,
And heaven and heaven and nature sing.

He rules the world with truth and grace,
And makes the nations prove
The glories of His righteousness
And wonders of His love,
And wonders of His love,
And wonders, wonders of His love.

You can also repeat this verse

Joy to the world
The lord has come
The lord has come
Joy to the world the lord has come.

Another version that goes back to the traditional theme

Joy to the World, the Savior reigns!
Let men their songs employ;
While fields and floods, rocks, hills and plains
Repeat the sounding joy,
Repeat the sounding joy,
Repeat, repeat, the sounding joy.

No more let sins and sorrows grow,
Nor thorns infest the ground;
He comes to make His blessings flow
Far as the curse is found,
Far as the curse is found,
Far as, far as, the curse is found.

This silly version can be quite mean

Joy to the world the teacher's dead
We bar-b-qued her head
What happened to her liver?
We threw it in the river
A lion ate her nose and also her toes
What happened to her wedding ring?
It went ping ping ping ping.

A different set of lyrics to the silly version

We barbequed her head
What happened to her body
We flushed it down the potty
Round and round it goes
Round and round it goes.
