Prologue Transcript

Greg: Oh, no. Jeff's always falling asleep. I guess we'd better wake Jeff up. When I count three, let's say, Wake up Jeff.

Anthony: Okay.

Greg, Murray and Anthony: 1,2 3, Wake Up Jeff!

Jeff: (waking up while blubbering) Hey, guys! I just had a dream then. I dreamt that we were at the beach and were building a big sandcastle. Santa Claus and Henry the Octopus were helping us.

Murray: A sandcastle?

Jeff: It was so real! Take a look at this. (pulling his shoe up and dumping water out while the Awake Wiggles laugh.)

Song Lyrics

We're having a picnic on the beach.

Ooh, it's Christmas day..

Bring your friends, take some food.

Let's all dance and play.

There's Dorothy the Dinosaur

Romp Bomp a Chomp.

She's starting to dance now

Doing the Romp Bomp a Stomp.

We're having a picnic on the beach.

Ooh, it's Christmas day.

Bring your friends, take some food.

Let's all dance and play.

There's Wags the Dog

Wags: Ruff, ruff, ruff!

He's digging in the dirt now

And running to and fro.

We're having a picnic on the beach.

Ooh, it's Christmas day.

Bring your friends, take some food.

Let's all dance and play.

There's Captain Feathersword

Captain Feathersword: Ahoy there, me hearties.

He's starting to dance.

He's doing it the pirate way.

We're having a picnic on the beach.

Ooh, it's Christmas day.

Bring your friends, take some food.

Let's all dance and play.

We're having a picnic on the beach.

Ooh, it's Christmas day.

Bring your friends, take some food.

Let's all dance and play.

We're having a picnic on the beach.

Ooh, it's Christmas day.

Bring your friends, take some food.

Let's all dance and play.
