Snow covered rooftops
Lights on the trees
The sound of singing
I hear down
Every street

Families
Have gathered
From miles away
Oh, Merry Christmas
It's Christmas day

You see that old tree
Down Cotton Lane
Those lights
Keep shining
It's always the same

We hear
The church bells
Ring out to say
Oh, Merry Christmas
It's Christmas day
Oh, Merry Christmas
It's Christmas day

Swing the lights
And hang
The stockings
Decorate
With green and red
Made the cookies
For old Santa
Made a runway
For his sled

Singing carols
On a sleigh ride
Gather 'round
The manger scene
Open presents
Read the letter
And together
We will sing

Oh
Merry Christmas
Joy to the world
For every nation
For every boy
And girl

Let's light a candle
For peace we pray
Oh
Merry Christmas
It's Christmas day
It's Christmas day
It's Christmas day

Let's light a candle
For peace we pray
Oh
Merry Christmas
It's Christmas day
Oh
Merry Christmas
It's Christmas day
