Sugar plum fairies, silver tinsel, sleigh bells in the air,
And old St. Nick a ho-ho-hoing, means Christmas must be near.
Children laughing, parents grappling, and reindeers all in pairs
What does it mean, this Christmas thing, on a night so cold and clear!

Christmas carols sung by friends, and presents under the tree
Mom is baking, dad is making, and kids are in the way.
"You mustn't peek; you must go to sleep, for Santa will surely see."
Mom tucks you in, with a great big grin, "And tomorrow is Christmas day!"

Santa jingles in your dreams, as does another day,
Of long ago, and far away, in a manger so forlorn.
Where wise men came, bearing gifts for a babe born in the hay.
A birthday celebration, rejoice, Jesus Christ is born!
