That time of year once more
When the bracts turn red
On the poinsettia
When every one want
To be merry and bright
So they sing about
This boy child
The Aguinaldos
Will announce

The joy of His coming
Into the world
Emmanuel is He
And the children wait
With excitement
For the visit of ole Saint Nich
Bringing gifts to all
Good or bad
Just because
Its Christmas
