Hey everybody, it's Christmas time!
So join with me, we'll rap this rhyme.
We'll teach you dudes in the Northern Hemisphere,
How we celebrate our Christmas way down under,
In the Southern Hemisphere!
On the first day of Christmas my true love sent to me a
partridge in a pear tree.
Well it sure isn't cold - we have no snow,
Because it's summer - hey, don't you know!
We have barbies (or barbecues to you),
and we wear jandals - or thongs will do!
We go swimming, windsurfing and rollerblading.
Summertime is definitely exhilarating!
On the second day of Christmas my true love sent to me two turtle doves and a partridge in a pear tree.
Slip, slop, slap, is really cool,
The sun is hot, say we're no fools,
What do I hear - sleigh bells ringing?
Wonder what goodies Santa will be bringing?
Bells on bob tails ring, making spirits bright what fun it is to ride and sing a sleighing song tonight.
We may share a hangi, an umu or traditional meal,
But no matter where you are - I'm sure you'll feel.
The best place to be is with your family.
So I wish you all, wherever you may be,
Peace, Goodwill and Prosperity!
Christmas bells those Christmas bells ringing through the land bringing peace to all the world and good will to man (repeat x 4)
