Lyrics

Where is Wags? It's Christmas Day!

We don't know where, but he's bouncing away!

I think that he's been chewing my shoe,

And some of this Christmas pudding too!

Look, he's bouncing around the Christmas tree!

It looks like fun for you and me!

Let's join in the bouncing fun!

Merry Christmas, everyone!

"Alright Wags, bounce away!"

Where is Wags? It's Christmas Day!

We don't know where but he's bouncing away!

He's over there munching on a bone,

And yapping on the telephone!

Look, he's bouncing around the Christmas tree!

It looks like fun for you and me!

Let's join in the bouncing fun!

Merry Christmas, everyone!

Prologue Transcript from Wiggly, Wiggly Christmas

Murray: (holding a bone-shaped present in red wrapping paper) At Christmas time, one of the things I like doing is getting presents for everyone. I got a present for Wags. It's a bone. What do you think? Do you think he'll like it?

Greg: (arriving while holding a yellow-shaped bone present) Hey Murray, I got a present for Wags the Dog.

Jeff: (arriving while holding a purple-shaped bone present) I got a present for Wags, as well.

Anthony: (arriving while holding a blue-shaped bone present) Murray, look. I got a present here for Wags the Dog.

Murray: Great, guys. What are they?

Greg, Jeff and Anthony: It's a bone!

Murray: Aw, that's what I got him, too.

Wiggles: Oh, no!

Anthony: Oh, well. He'll like them anyway.

Murray: Let's put them under the tree.

Murray: Here comes Wags now.

Wiggles: Merry Christmas, Wags.

Murray: What's that, Wags? You got a present here for all of us?

Wiggles: A BONE!
