Incredible Phat

On the coldest night of the year
At a pub called The Elephant's Ear
Incredible Phat, the Innkeeper's cat
Was having a saucer of beer
With fourteen merry gentlemen
On the coldest night of the year

As the hour of eleven drew near
Some poor stranger in rags did appear
At the door of the inn
Face weary and thin
To ask, Is there any room here?
But the owner just laughed and said
My friend
It's the coldеst night of the year

We'vе a sheikh with three wives
And a moneylender
A taxman, a soldier, and a harness mender
Three balmy old coots in silver boots
Two are stargazers and the other's a seer

Out into the night crystal clear
The stranger went hiding a tear
And Incredible Phat
The Innkeeper's cat
Followed and saw standing near
A donkey bearing a pale, sweet girl
Through the coldest night of the year
While the barmaid
The priest and the diplomat
Bought one last round
For the acrobat
And a spy with no chin
Who had also come in
From the cold
With Herod's surly charioteer

But Phat said, Friends be of good cheer
For I know of a shelter that's near
And he lead them out back
To a tumbled down shack
Where the Innkeeper's wife kept a steer
And he said, 'It's the warmest place in town
On the coldest night of the year
Yes, he said, It's the warmest place in town
On the coldest night of the year
