Prologue Transcript

Jeff: (He is snoring.)

(The other Wiggles run over to him.)

Greg: (He is laughing.) Oh, no. Jeff's always falling asleep. I guess we'd better wake Jeff up. When I count 3, let's say, Wake up, Jeff.

Anthony: (whispering.) Okay. (with Greg & Murray.) 1, 2, 3. WAKE UP, JEFF!

Jeff: (He wakes up & blubbers.) 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. (He picks up his boot & dumps water out of it & the others laugh.)

Song Lyrics

We're having a picnic, on the beach
Mmm it's Christmas day
Bring all your friends, take some food
Let's all dance and play

There's Dorothy the Dinosaur (eating some roses)
Romp bomp a chomp, she's starting to dance now
Doing the romp bomp a stomp

Chorus
There's Wags the Dog (eating some bones) 
Woof, woof, woof
He's digging in the dirt now, and running to and fro

Chorus

There's Captain Feathersword (tickling away)
"Ahoy there me hearties"
He's starting to dance now, doing it the pirate way

Chorus

We're having a picnic on the beach
Ooh, it's Christmas day
Bring all your friends, take some food
Let's all dance and play

There's Dorothy the Dinosaur (eating some roses)
(Heeeeee! I love roses)
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 all your friends, take some food
Let's all dance and play

There's Wags the Dog (eating some bones)
(Ruff, ruff, ruff)
He's digging in the dirt now
And running to and fro-o-o-o

We're having a picnic on the beach
Ooh, it's Christmas day
Bring all your friends, take some food
Let's all dance and play

There's Captain Feathersword (tickling away)
(Woo hoo! Ahoy there, me hearties)
He's starting to dance (whoo hoo hoo hoo)
He's doing it the pirate way

We're having a picnic on the beach
Ooh, it's Christmas day
Bring all 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 all your friends, take some food
Let's all dance and play

Oh, 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
"Heeeeee!"
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
Eating some bones
"Ruff, ruff, ruff!"
He's digging in the dirt now
And running to and fro-o-o-o

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
"Woo, hoo, hoo, hoo! Wahoo, me hearties!"
He's starting to dance now
He's doing it the pirate way-ay-ay-ay

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
Spinning around
"Gurgh!"
He's doing the merengue
And dancing his octopus way-ay-ay-ay

We're having a picnic at Wigglehouse
Ooh, it's Christmas day
Bring your friends, take some food
Let's all merengue

Oh, we're having a picnic at Wigglehouse
Ooh, it's Christmas day
Bring your friends, take some food
Let's all merengue
