Christmastime is here
Raise a cup of cheer
We waited all year long
To sing this Christmas song

The nights are long and the days are bright
Frozen fields lit by starry nights
Seeing friends in your neighborhood
Baking cookies, splitting wood

Christmastime is here
Time to drink a beer 
Standing round the fire (listening to)
Carols from a choir

Blinking lights up and down the road
Doris Day on the stereo (silver bells)
Watching movies that we’ve seen before
It’s cold outside, please shut the door

Christmastime don’t go
Let the north wind blow
Frosted window panes (candles gleaming inside)
Painted candy canes (on the tree)

Trim the tree and Deck the halls (fa la la)
Stay up late and see Santa Claus (have a nip with saint nick)
Spirits rise, that had been sinking low
The forecast for rain has now turned to snow
