Andy Williams – Do You Hear What I Hear lyrics

Do you hear what I hear?
(Hear what I hear, hear what I hear?)
Said the night wind to the little lamb
Do you see what I see? (do you see what I see?)
Way up in the sky, little lamb
Do you see what I see? (do you see what I see?)
A star, a star, dancing in the night
With a tail as big as a kite
With a tail as big as a kite

Said the little lamb to the shepherd boy
Do you hear what I hear? (Do you hear what I hear?)
Ringing through the sky, shepherd boy
Do you hear what I hear? (Do you hear what I hear?)
A song, a song high above the tree
With a voice as big as the the sea
With a voice as big as the the sea

Said the shepherd boy to the mighty king
Do you know what I know? (what I know, what I know?)
In your palace warm, mighty king
Do you know what I know? (what I know, what I know?)
A Child, a Child shivers in the cold
Let us bring him silver and gold
Let us bring him silver and gold

Said the king to the people everywhere
Listen to what I say! (what I say, what I say)
Pray for peace, people, everywhere
Listen to what I say! (what I say, what I say)
The Child, the Child sleeping in the night
He will bring us goodness and light
He will bring us goodness and light

    It is the story of the birth of Jesus and the star appearing in the sky and the song being sung in the air. One of the shepherd boys goes to the King and announces that Jesus has been born and is in a stable in the cold. He suggests that they bring him silver and gold as the king is nice and warm while the child is cold. The King goes before the people and ask them to pray for peace and that the child will bring the people goodness and light. Listen to the words being told.

    When it came out in 1962 during the cuban missile crisis it had an inherently different meaning. Do you hear what I hear refers to the sounds of war or sabers rattling in the night. A star dancing in the sky is the missile on its way to earth with its tail as big as the sky. With a with a voice as big as the sea refers to the explosion of the nuclear warhead. A child shivering in the cold refers to the nuclear winter that follows. The kings message is to pray for peace everywhere.
