For this tape, eh?

(All): Happy Christmas!

(J): Thank you. Same to you. Ha, ha. Happy Christmas.

(Yoko): ... Christmas, John, and I see you strolling in
Ascot Garden with your wife, Yoko, but well, do you
Have any special thoughts at, for Christmas?

(J): Well, Yoko, it is Christmas and my special thoughts,
Of course, turn towards eating.

(Y): Ha! Ha! Ha! All right. So, eating. Well, what do you like to eat?

(J): Well, I'd like some cornflakes prepared by Parisian
Hands. And I'd like it blessed by Hari Krishna Mantra.

(G): "Yes, have a wonderful Christmas.
Have a jolly new year.
Make sure that Christmas...
... comes once a year."
Yes, Happy New Year. All the best.
This is George Harrison saying Happy Christmas. Happy
Christmas. Christmas. Christmas. Happy. Happy...

(R): (Singing)
Ooh, good evening to you ladies,
Good evening to you gentlemen,
Happy to be here,
Good evening to you gentlemen,
I fear, I fear, I fear.
Good evening to you one and all
I hope you will enjoy
The coming sports day of your life
Is mama's little boy.

(Y): So, how do you like the garden here?

(J): I think it's simply splendid. I'm overwhelmed by its Sanctuary.

(Y): So, you don't mind these high gates and things and the walls?

(J): Oh, I've always loved the high walls. The Elizabethan high
Wall is something I've always loved. You see

(Y): Yes

(J): Lady

This is to wish you, a merry, merry Christmas
This is to wish you just a merry, merry year
This say to wish you just a happy, happy new year
This is to wish you a merry, merry, merry new year

(P): I'd like to say that I hope everybody listening to this
Has a very happy time at Christmas and has a good,
Fortunate, lucky New Year. And a good time to be had by All.

(P): (Singing)
"Merry Christmas!
Mm, this is to wish you a me-merry, merry Christmas,
This is to wish you a ha-ha-happy new year."

(J): How do you see your place in the seventies to
Come? We've had the swinging sixties, and I was wondering, Mrs. Lennon,
how you saw your place in the seventies?

(Y): I think it'll be a quiet, peaceful seventies, hopefully, you know.

(J): So you think there's gonna be peace, do you?

(Y): Yes, and freedom.

(J): I see.

(Y): Freedom of mind. And everything.

(J): I see. Really nice.

(Y): Everybody will just be flying around, you know.

(J): Ah, everybody will just be flying around, you see.
D'you Understand that?

(Y): The air's so crisp and all that. And just, there's
Something about it, very delicate...

(J): (Singing)
Deep and crisp and even,
Brightly shone the moon that night
On the misty cruel.
Good King Wenceslas last look out
On the feast of....

(Y): ... and it's sort of, ah, like a strange magic, you know,
Just slowing down the process of our thinking. Anyway,
It's just really beautiful.

(J), (Y): (Singing)
Happy Christmas - (Happy Christmas)
Happy Christmas - (Happy Christmas)
Happy Christmas - (Happy Christmas)
Happy New Year.

Happy, happy, happy, happy, happy Christmas - (Happy Christmas)

Oh-oh-oh-oh, happy Christmas.

John, Yoko,
John, happy Christmas
It's warm and nice and comfy in Ascot.
Ac-dc lights.

(Y): Let's put the lights on the trees.

(J): Alright, dear. You pass me the light (*lights?) and I'll string
It on (*stick it to?) the tree. (*ha ha ha ha ha ha ha....?)

And a (*very?) happy new year.

Recorded on Nov.-Dec., 1969 / Released on Dec. 19, 1969.
Recorded in Various Studios.
Label: Lyntone // Total Time: 7:39

The final Beatles Christmas offering was also recorded separately, as the band had effectively split by this point. It features an extensive visit with John and Yoko at their Tittenhurst Park estate, where they play "what will Santa bring me?" games. Harrison appears only briefly, and Starr only shows up to plug his recent film, The Magic Christian. Paul sings his original ad-lib, "This is to Wish You a Merry, Merry Christmas." Starting at 1:30, at the tail-end of Ringo's song, the guitar solos from "The End" are heard, followed by Yoko interviewing John. For the only time, the American and British jackets were identical. The US version of the flexi-disc had an elaborate drawing of the Beatles' faces on it. Drawings were credited to Richard Starkey & Zak Starkey.
