I’m dreaming of a white Christmas
Just like the ones I used to know (Ooo)
Where the treetops glisten and children listen
To hear sleigh bells in the snow

I’m dreaming of a white Christmas
With every Christmas card I write (Ooo)
“May your days be merry and bright
And may all your Christmases be white”

I’m dreaming of a white Christmas
Just like the ones I used to know (Ooo)
Where the treetops glisten and children listen
To hear (To hear the sleigh bеlls in the snow)

I’m dreaming of a white Christmas (*whistling*)
With еvery Christmas card I write (Mmm)
“May your days be merry and bright
And may all your Christmases be white” (Mmm)

Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas

Ez a dal szintén egy filmben szerepelt először, Judy Garland énekelte a Meet Me in St. Louis című filmben, de a dal később Frank Sinatra előadásában vált igazán népszerűvé.

Have yourself a merry little Christmas
Let your heart be light
From now on
Our troubles will be out of sight

Have yourself a merry little Christmas
Make the Yule-tide gay
From now on
Our troubles will be miles away

Here we are as in olden days
Happy golden days of yore
Faithful friends who are dear to us
Gather near to us once more

Through the years we all will be together
If the fates allow
Hang a shining star upon the highest bough
And have yourself a merry little Christmas now

Here we are as in olden days
Happy golden days of yore
Faithful friends who are dear to us
Gather near to us once more

Through the years
We all will be together
If the fates allow
So hang a shining star upon the highest bough
And have yourself a merry little Christmas now.

Santa Claus is Comin’ to Town

A Mikulás a városba érkezik című dal szerzői J. Fred Coots és Haven Gillespie először Harry Reser and His Band adta elő, azóta több feldolgozás is készült belőle.

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
He’s checking it twice
He’s going to 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 when you’ve been bad or good
So be good for goodness sake

You better watch out
You better not cry
You better not pout
I’m telling you why, 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
He’s checking it twice
He’s going to find out
Who’s naughty and nice, Santa Claus is coming to town

Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree

Johnny Marks szerzeményét Brenda Lee énekelte fel 1958-ban.

Rockin’ around the Christmas tree
At the Christmas party hop
Mistletoe hung where you can see
Every couple tries to stop
Rockin’ around the Christmas tree
Let the Christmas spirit ring
Later we’ll have some pumpkin pie
And we’ll do some caroling
You will get a sentimental feeling when you hear
Voices singing, let’s be jolly
Deck the halls with boughs of holly
Rockin’ around the Christmas tree
Have a happy holiday
Everyone dancin’ merrily
In the new old-fashioned way
You will get a sentimental feeling when you hear
Voices singing, let’s be jolly
Deck the halls with boughs of holly
Rockin’ around the Christmas tree
Have a happy holiday
Everyone dancin’ merrily
In the new old-fashioned way

Dashing through the snow
In a one-horse open sleigh
O’er the fields we go
Laughing all the way
Bells on bobtails ring
Making spirits bright
What fun it is to ride and sing
A sleighing song tonight, oh!

Jingle bells, jingle bells
Jingle all the way
Oh, what fun it is to ride
In a one-horse open sleigh, hey!
Jingle bells, jingle bells
Jingle all the way
Oh what fun it is to ride
In a one-horse open sleigh

Now the ground is white
Go it while you’re young
Take the girls tonight
Sing this sleighing song
Get a bobtailed bay
Two forty for his speed
And hitch him to an open sleigh
And you will take the lead

Oh, jingle bells, jingle bells
Jingle all the way
Oh, what fun it is to ride
In a one-horse open sleigh, hey!
Jingle bells, jingle bells
Jingle all the way
Oh, what fun it is to ride
In a one-horse open sleigh
Oh, what fun it is to ride
In one horse open sleigh!

Jingle Bell Rock

A Jingle Bell Rock karácsonyi dal szerzői Joseph Carleton Beal és James Ross Boothe, 1957-ben Bobby Helms adta ki ezt a dalt.

Jingle bell, jingle bell, jingle bell rock
Jingle bells swing and jingle bells ring
Snowin’ and blowin’ up bushels of fun
Now the jingle hop has begun
Jingle bell, jingle bell, jingle bell rock
Jingle bells chime in jingle bell time
Dancin’ and prancin’ in Jingle Bell Square
In the frosty air
What a bright time, it’s the right time
To rock the night away
Jingle bell time is a swell time
To go glidin’ in a one-horse sleigh
Giddy-up jingle horse, pick up your feet
Jingle around the clock
Mix and a-mingle in the jinglin’ feet
That’s the jingle bell rock
Jingle bell, jingle bell, jingle bell rock
Jingle bells chime in jingle bell time
Dancin’ and prancin’ in Jingle Bell Square
In the frosty air
What a bright time, it’s the right time
To rock the night away
Jingle bell time is a swell time
To go glidin’ in a one-horse sleigh
Giddy-up jingle horse, pick up your feet
Jingle around the clock
Mix and a-mingle in the jinglin’ feet
That’s the jingle bell
That’s the jingle bell
That’s the jingle bell rock

Let it Snow! Let it Snow! Let it Snow!

A Legyen hó című dalt Sammy Cahn és Jule Styne szerezték, és 1945-ben vált nagy sikerré.

Oh, the weather outside is frightful
But the fire is so delightful
And since we’ve no place to go
Let it snow! Let it snow! Let it snow!
Man it doesn’t show signs of stopping
And I brought me some corn for popping
The lights are turned way down low
Let it snow! Let it snow!
When we finally kiss goodnight
How I’ll hate going out in the storm
But if you’ll really hold me tight
All the way home I’ll be warm
And the fire is slowly dying
And, my dear, we’re still goodbying
But as long as you’d love me so
Let it snow! Let it snow and snow!
When we finally kiss goodnight
How I’ll hate going out in the storm
But if you really grab me tight
All the way home I’ll be warm
Oh, the fire is slowly dying
And, my dear, we’re still goodbying
But as long as you’d love me so
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!

You Make It Feel Like Christmas

Gwen Stefani 2017-ben publikált karácsonyi dala.

I want to thank the storm that brought the snow
Thanks to the string of lights that make it glow
But I wanna thank you, baby
You make it feel like Christmas
It barely took a breath to realize
We’re gonna be a classic for all time
I wanna thank you, baby
You make it feel like Christmas
Sweet gingerbread made with molasses
My heart skipped and I reacted
Can’t believe that this is happening
Like a present sent from God
Sleigh bells singing Hallelujah
Stars are shining on us, too
I wanna thank you, baby
You make it feel like Christmas
(Ooh, ooh)
Thought I was done for, thought that love had died
But you came along, I swear you saved my life
And I wanna thank you, baby (I want to thank you)
‘Cause you make it feel like Christmas
(You make it feel like Christmas)
Sweet gingerbread made with molasses
My heart skipped and I reacted
Can’t believe that this is happening
Like a present sent from God
Sleigh bells singing Hallelujah
Stars are shining on us, too
I wanna thank you, baby
You make it feel like Christmas
I never thought I’d find a love like this
But I found forever in that very first kiss
I wanna thank you, baby (I want to thank you)
You make it feel like Christmas
Oh-oh
Oh, thank you, baby
I wanna thank you, baby
You make it feel like Christmas
