Lyrics for “Twelve Days To Christmas”:

Twelve days to Christmas,
Twelve days to Christmas,
Plenty of time to do your Christmas shopping,
These are the people who shop in time, shop in time, plenty of time,
These are the people with time to spare who shop at their convenience.

Twelve days to Christmas,
Twelve days to Christmas,
Look at the way they do their Christmas shopping,
They can go shopping and still remain calm and sedate,
These are the people we envy and the people that we hate!

Caught in the act and facing the certainty of prison, he takes his own life and is sent “up there.” Billy is allowed to return to earth for one day fifteen years later, and he encounters the daughter he never knew. She is a lonely, friendless teenager, her father’s reputation as a thief and bully having haunted her throughout her young life. How Billy instills in both the child and her mother a sense of hope and dignity is a dramatic testimony to the power of love. It’s easy to understand why, of all the shows they created, Carousel was Rodgers & Hammerstein’s personal favorite.
