By the way, I don't give instructions in the score above, but you start the loop by singing "Three by Three" and read down. (The text so far has already gotten you through one and two as a guide). Next time 'round look in from Number 4 "Four by Four" and read down from there.

You work through as far as EIGHT by EIGHT. The Seekers then next come around and count down from TWELVE that time, and then run straight into the "Virgin Mary, swaddling clothing, lowly manger" lines to finish up. (To make that clear, 9x9, 10x10 and 11x11 are missed out and only sung on the way back down from 12).

I must say, this Christmas, I've been doing all twelve individually. It pushes the song out, I must say, but that's exactly what I want when busking. People are walking past, and don't hear the repetition. Then you get another 2 minutes out of a song without having to learn another one!!!! :-)
