Christmas comes but once a year
And to me it brings good cheer
And to everyone who likes wine and beer

Happy new year is after that
Happy I'll be that is a fact
That's why I like to hear
Folks who say that "Christmas is here"

Christmas bells will ring real soon
Even in the afternoon
There'll be no chime bells ringin'
At the Christmas ball

Everyone must watch their step
Or they will lose their rep'
Everybody's full of pep
At the Christmas ball

Grab your partner one and all
Keep on dancin' 'round the hall
If there's no one to call
Don't you dare do stall

If your partner don't act fair
Don't worry there's someone there
Takin' a chance everywhere
At the Christmas ball
