CAROLING LYRICS


1. Here Comes the Snow

Here comes the snow. It’s fallin’ down. It’s fallin’ gently upon the ground.

 

Here comes the snow. It’s fallin’ down. It leaves a blanket upon the ground, ground, ground.

 

Snow! Snow! Snow! Snow!

Snow! Snow! Snow! Snow!

Snow! Snow! Snow! Snow!

Snow! Snow! Snow! Snow!

 

Peacefully the flakes of white are falling down on us tonight. / Stay in by the fireside or bundle up and go outside.

 

Down the road upon a sleigh, just having fun this winter day. / Down a hill upon a sled, then snuggle in a winter bed.

 

Falling down, down, down, down.

Falling down, down, down.

(repeat all)

Here comes the snow.


2. Peaceful Round

(Part 1: First time all together)

Peaceful candles, peaceful lights / Peaceful snow on peaceful nights

Peaceful stars in the sky above / Peaceful hearts all filled with peaceful love.

(2nd and 3rd time in a round)

(After round): Ooh.


3. Jingle Bells (traditional)

Dashing through the snow / In a one-horse open sleigh / O’er the fields we go / Laughing all the way

Bells on bobtail ring / Making spirits bright / What fun it is to ride and sing / A sleighing song tonight!

 

Chorus: Jingle bells, jingle bells, Jingle all the way.

Oh, what fun it is to ride / In a one-horse open sleigh.

Jingle bells, jingle bells, Jingle all the way.

Oh, what fun it is to ride / In a one-horse open sleigh.

 

A day or two ago / I thought I’d take a ride / And soon Miss Susie Bright / Was seated by my side / The horse was lean and lank / Misfortune seemed his lot / He got into a drifted bank / And then we got upshot.

 

Chorus

 

A day or two ago / The story I must tell / I went out on the snow / And on my back I fell / A gent was riding by / In a one-horse open sleigh / He laughed as there I sprawling lie / And quickly drove away.

 

Chorus

 

Now the ground is white / Go it while you’re young / Take the girls tonight / And sing this sleighing song / Just get your bobtailed bay / Two forty as his speed / Hitch him to an open sleigh / And crack! you’ll take the lead.

 

Chorus

 

4. Santa Claus Is Coming To Town

 

You better watch out / You better not cry / You better not pout

I'm telling you why / Santa Claus is coming to town

 

He's making a list / Checking it twice / Gonna find out who's naughty and nice

Santa Claus is coming to town

 

He sees you when you're sleeping / He knows when you're awake

He knows if you've been bad or good / So be good for goodness sake!

 

O! You better watch out! / You better not cry / You better not pout

I'm telling you why / Santa Claus is coming to town

 

With little tin horns / And little toy drums / Rooty toot toots

And rummy tum tums / Santa Claus is coming to town

 

He sees you when you're sleeping / He knows when you're awake / He knows if you've been bad or good / So be good for goodness sake!

 

O! You better watch out! / You better not cry / You better not pout / I'm telling you why

Santa Claus is coming to town.

Santa Claus is coming to town.

Santa Claus is coming to town.

 

5. Winter Wonderland

Sleigh bells ring, are you listening / In the lane, snow is glistening / A beautiful sight, We're happy tonight. / Walking in a winter wonderland.

 

Gone away is the bluebird / Here to stay is a new bird / He sings a love song, As we go along / Walking in a winter wonderland.

 

In the meadow we can build a snowman / Then pretend that he is Parson Brown / He'll say: Are you married? We'll say: No man, / But you can do the job when you're in town

 

Later on, we'll conspire, as we dream by the fire. / To face unafraid, the plans that we've made, / Walking in a winter wonderland.

 

In the meadow we can build a snowman, / Then pretend that he is Parson Brown / He'll say: Are you married? We'll say: No man, / But you can do the job when you're in town.

 

Later on, we'll conspire, as we dream by the fire / To face unafraid, the plans that we've made

Walking in a winter wonderland.

Walking in a winter wonderland.

Walking in a winter wonderland.

 

6. Feliz Navidad

Feliz Navidad (3x)

Prospero año y felicidad (repeat)

 

I wanna wish you a merry Christmas / With lots of presents to make you happy.

I wanna wish you merry Christmas, from the bottom of my heart.

 

I wanna wish you a merry Christmas / With mistletoe and lots of cheer

With lots of laughter throughout / the years from the bottom of my heart.

 

Feliz Navidad (3x)

Prospero año y felicidad.

 

 

7. O Christmas Tree

O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree, How evergreen your branches (2X)

 

You never change, the whole year round. You brighten up, the snowy ground.

 

O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree, How evergreen your branches.

 

O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree, How evergreen your branches (2X)

 

We trim the tree at Christmas time. And merry bells begin to chime.

 

O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree, How evergreen your branches.
