Sorry--my sound is not working, but I do know several versions of this carol. I have always been afraid to sing it in church, however, because I have been concerned that traditional Catholics would be offended by it.
Especially this part: "Let the father of the baby gather cherries for thee."

Well, it's easy to offend someone. I heard from one woman who hated this carol becuase she felt it was wrong to show Jospeh being annoyed. I sighed and pointed out that the bible says that St. Joseph was confused and doubtful until the angel set him straight. That doesn't take anything away from his holiness.
