The Cadillacs roll, Katie step to the side
Tellin' jokes with strangers
A kind glance at a lonely passer-by
Jingle bells, electric lights
Oh, they rattle 'gainst the shopping cart
Even on the fourth of July

Christmas Katie calls people names
They're Dancers, and Blitzens, and angels on high

Chilly bones laughin' after the night
Oh, the hungries come and go
As he blows with his eyes froze tight
Slidell boy, big city nights
Oh, he tips his hat for dinner
An old stray beggin' for a bite

Oh, Christmas Katie, babe, blow your horn
Play something happy, leave the sad one's alone
Crackin' a smile as small as wishes
Make us some merry, make it last for a while

Hey, puttin' out the dog, put the wheels on tight
Oh, play another sweet song
Never want to see Katie cry
Jingle bells, electric lights
They rattle 'gainst the shopping cart
Even on the fourth of July

Oh, Christmas Katie, baby blow that horn
Play something happy, leave the sad ones alone
Slidell smiles as small as wishin'
Make us some merry, make it last for a while
Oh, make it last all night!
