The Three Drovers

“The Three Drovers” er en australsk julesang. Teksten er skrevet af John Wheeler og musikken er af William G. James. 

Across the plains one Christmas night 
Three drovers riding blithe and gay 
Looked up and saw a starry light 
More radiant than the Milky Way 
And on their hearts such wonder fell 
They sang with joy: 
"Noel! Noel! Noel! Noel! Noel!" 

The air was dry with summer heat 
And smoke was on the yellow moon 
But from the heavens, faint and sweet 
Came floating down a wondrous turn 
And as they heard, they sang full well 
Those drovers three: 
"Noel! Noel! Noel! Noel! Noel!"

The black swans flew across the sky 
The wild dog called across the plain 
The starry lustre blazed on high 
Still echoed on the heavenly strain 
And still they sang, "Noel! Noel!" 
Those drovers three: 
"Noel! Noel! Noel! Noel! Noel!"
