Oh du happy Weihnachtszeit


When the snow falls wunderbar


And the children happy are,


When there's Glatteis on the street,


And we all a Glühwein need,


Then you know, es ist soweit:


She is here, the Weihnachtszeit.




Mother in the kitchen bakes


Schoko-, Nuss- and Mandelkeks


Daddy in the Nebenraum


Schmückt a riesen Weihnachtsbaum


He is hanging on the balls,


Then he from the Leiter falls...




Finally the Kinderlein


In the Zimmer kommen rein


And es singt die Family, schauerlich:


"Oh Christmastree!"


And then jeder in the house


Is packing die Geschenke aus.




Mama finds under the Tanne


Eine brandnew Teflon-Pfanne,


Papa gets a Schlips and Socken,


Everybody does frohlocken.


President speaks on TV,


All around is Harmonie




Bis mother in the kitchen runs:


Im Ofen burns the Weihnachtsgans.


And so comes the Feuerwehr


With Tatü, tata daher,


And they bring a long, long Schauch


And a long, long Leiter auch.


And they schrei loud - "Wasser marsch!",


Christmas Fest is now im - Eimer...




Merry Christmas, merry Christmas,


Hear the music, see the lights,


Frohe Weihnacht, Frohe Weihnacht,


Merry Christmas allerseits...
