Mary's Little Boy Child by Harry Belafonte (Boney M. version) is featured in Previously Unaired Christmas, the eighth episode of Season Five. It is sung by Marley, Tina, and Unique. 

Since this year's "living Nativity" has a singing element to it, some Glee Club members want the role of Mary. Earlier in the episode, Marley asks Kitty if she would like to join in as the girl's of New Directions perform a song together as they audition for the role altogether, but Kitty does not want to. Coach Beiste and the Glee Club with Mr. Schue are gathered in the auditorium to watch the three perform Mary's Little Boy Child and to help judge who should get the part. On the stage, Marley, Tina and Unique are dressed in a white costume with faded, blue lighting as they begin to sing. Kitty can be seen in the audience, partially disgusted, as she watches the three dance and sing. Towards the ending of the song, the three take off their gowns. At the end of the performance, everyone applauds them. Kitty, however, walks out of the auditorium when Coach Beiste asks if there are any last-minute auditions for the Virgin Mary. 

Lyrics

Marley, Tina, and Unique:
Mary's boy child Jesus Christ
Was born on Christmas Day
And man will live forevermore
Because of Christmas Day

Marley:
Long time ago in Bethlehem
So the Holy Bible said

Marley with Unique:
Mary's boy child Jesus Christ
Was born on Christmas Day

Marley with Tina and Unique:
Hark now hear the angels sing
A king was born today
And man will live forevermore
Because of Christmas Day

Mary's boy child Jesus Christ
Was born on Christmas Day

Unique with Marley:
While shepherds watch their flock by night
They see a bright new shining star

Tina with Unique:
They hear a choir sing a song

Tina with Unique and Marley:
The music seemed to come from afar

Marley with Tina and Unique:
Hark, now hear the angels sing
A king was born today
And man will live forevermore
Because of Christmas Day

Unique:
For a moment the world was a glow
All the bells rang out
There were tears of joy and laughter

Marley, Tina, and Unique:
People shouted
"Let everyone know
There is hope for all to find peace"

Tina:
And then they found a little nook
In a stable all forlorn

Unique:
And in a manger cold and dark
Mary's little boy was born

Marley with Tina and Unique:
Hark, now hear the angels sing
A king was born today
And man will live forevermore
Because of Christmas Day

Mary's boy child Jesus Christ
Was born on Christmas Day

Marley and Tina:
Oh, my Lord
You sent your son to save us

Marley, Tina, and Unique:
Oh, my Lord
Your very self you gave us

Oh, my Lord
That sin may not enslave us
And love may reign once more

Tina and Unique (Marley):
Oh, my Lord (So praise the Lord)
They had become to doubt you
Oh, my Lord (He is the truth forever)
What did they know about you
Oh, my Lord (So praise the Lord)
But they were lost without you
They needed you so bad (His light is shining on us)

Marley and Unique (Tina):
(Unique: Oh, my Lord) (So praise the Lord)
With the child's adoration
Oh, my lord (He is a personation)
There came great jubilation
Oh, my Lord (So praise the Lord)
And full of admiration
They realized what they had (Until the sun falls from the sky)

Marley and Tina (Unique):
(Marley: Oh, my Lord) (Oh, praise the Lord)
You sent your son to save us
Oh, my Lord (This day will live forever)
Your very self you gave us
Oh, my Lord (So praise the Lord)
And full of admiration
They realized what they had (Until the sun falls from the sky)

Oh, my Lord (So praise the Lord)
And full of admiration
They realized what they had (Until the sun falls from the sky)

Trivia

  • The costumes Marley, Tina and Unique wore pay homage to the ones worn in the music video of the Boney M. version.

Errors

  • When Marley, Unique, and Tina throw their coats, Unique and Marley's are thrown on the stage. When the shot changes, their coats were all gone.
