Christmas Song Lyrics

Here are the words to some Christmas Songs we’re working on in General Music Class. These are the actual songs the classes going to sing at the Administration’s Open House will be singing.

 

We Wish You a Merry Christmas

We wish you a merry Christmas,

We wish you a merry Christmas,

We wish you a merry Christmas and a happy New Year!

Good tidings we bring to you and your kin;

Good tidings for Christmas and a happy New Year!

We wish you a merry Christmas,

We wish you a merry Christmas,

We wish you a merry Christmas and a happy New Year!

(If your students says the verses about “figgy pudding” and “we won’t go” are the rude verses, it’s because of the history of caroling in England I told them. The poor would get into groups and sing at the homes of the rich at mealtime, and keep singing until someone came out and gave them food or money. Ask them to repeat the story to you.)

 

Jingle Bells

(Chorus)

Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells, Jingle all the way.

Oh, what fun it is to ride in a one-horse open sleigh. Hey!

Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells, Jingle all the way.

Oh, what fun it is to ride in a one-horse open sleigh.

(Verse)

Dashing through the snow, in a one-horse open sleigh;

O’er the fields we go, laughing all the way. Ha, Ha, Ha!

Bells on bob-tail rings, making spirits bright;

What fun it is to ride and sling a sleighing song tonight! Oh!

(Chorus)

Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells, Jingle all the way.

Oh, what fun it is to ride in a one-horse open sleigh. Hey!

Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells, Jingle all the way.

Oh, what fun it is to ride in a one-horse open sleigh.

(Notice there is no “hey” at the very end of the chorus. Ask your student why there’s no “hey” there.)

 

Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer (Mr. Wiseman’s Version)

Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer (reindeer), had a very shiny nose (like a light bulb!),

And if you ever saw it (saw it), you would even say it glows (like a light bulb!).

All of the other reindeer (reindeer) used to laugh and call him names (Hey, Light Bulb!).

They never let poor Rudolph (Rudolph) join in any reindeer games (Change the Light Bulb!).

Then one foggy Christmas Eve, Santa came to say (Ho, Ho, Ho),

“Rudolph, with your nose so bright, won’t you guide my sleigh tonight?”

Then all the reindeer loved him (loved him) as they shouted out with glee (Yippee!),

“Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer (Reindeer), you’ll go down in history (like Thomas Edison)!”

(With these words, I’ve made lessons on how bullying can hurt others; like calling names and physically being mean. The “reindeer game,” Change the Light Bulb, could be where others tried to twist Rudolph’s nose as if they were twisting out a light bulb to change it. Going through the song this way seemed to get the students to better understand how bullying hurts. Note that after Rudolph helps Santa he’s not called names or picked on.)

 

Away in a Manger

Away in a manger, no crib for a bed,

The little Lord Jesus lay down his sweet head.

The stars in the sky looked down where he lay;

The little Lord Jesus asleep on the hay.
