Christmas Is Coming!


I always start humming

When Christmas is coming

I skip and I hop and I sing


I always start humming

When Christmas is coming

I wonder what Christmas will bring


There’s fresh mistletoe

Tied up with a bow

And an angel with soft shining hair


There’s new fallen snow

Wherever we go

And a Christmas tree in the square


Oh I almost can’t wait

For that glorious date

I love this time of the year


When everyone’s jolly

And there’s lots of holly

And Santa Claus soon will be here


I always start humming

When Christmas is coming

I wonder what Christmas will bring


I always start humming

When Christmas is coming

I skip and I hop and I sing
