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...
