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

Original Version

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.

2017 Version

We're having a picnic at wigglehouse.

Ooh, it's Christmas day..

Bring your friends, take some food.

Let's all merengue

There's Dorothy the Dinosaur

Eating some roses.

She's starting to dance now

Doing the Romp Bomp a Stomp.

We're having a picnic at wigglehouse

Ooh, it's Christmas day.

Bring your friends, take some food.

Let's all merengue

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 at wigglehouse

Ooh, it's Christmas day.

Bring your friends, take some food.

Let's all Merengue

There's Captain Feathersword

Tickling away

Captain Feathersword: Ahoy there, me hearties.

He's starting to dance.

He's doing it the pirate way.

We're having a picnic at wigglehouse

Ooh, it's Christmas day.

Bring your friends, take some food.

Let's all merengue

There's henry the octopus

Sitting around

He's doing the berengue and dancing his octopus way

Ooh, it's Christmas day.

Bring your friends, take some food.

Let's all merengue

We're having a picnic at wigglehouse

Ooh, it's Christmas day.

Bring your friends, take some food.

Let's all merengue

Trivia

  • The line "We're having a picnic" is re-used on performances of Here Come the Reindeer except for the Yule Be Wiggling album and video.
  • In an earlier version of the music video that broadcasted on TV in 1996 to promote their album, the Wiggles were in their short-sleeved skivvies and Santa hats. 
  • The 2017 version uses new lyrics such as having a picnic in Wigglehouse.
  • An instrumental track of the song is played over the credits of Wake Up Jeff! so that nobody would know what it is.
