Toora-loora-loora-lay,
Christ the King was born today;
Hark the Herald Angels say,
It's Christmas in the harbour.

Church bells ring out loud and clear,
People come from far and near;
All men drink their Christmas cheer,
It's Christmas in the harbour.

Younger faces all aglow,
Smile beneath the mistletoe;
Yule log embers brightly glow,
It's Christmas in the harbour.

Toora-loora-loora-lay,
Christ the King was born today;
Hark the Herald Angels say,
It's Christmas in the harbour.

Children sleep without a sound,
All nestled in their eider down;
Snow is falling softly down,
It's Christmas in the harbour.

Toora-loora-loora-lay,
Christ the King was born today;
Hark the Herald Angels say,
It's Christmas in the harbour.

Trees are laden down with snow,
It's off to Midnight Mass we go;
Hand-in-hand across the snow,
It's Christmas in the harbour.

Toora-loora-loora-lay,
Christ the King was born today;
Hark the Herald Angels say,
It's Christmas in the harbour.

Younger know, they dance and sing
And join in all the jannying;
Peace on earth, good will to men,
It's Christmas in the harbour.

Toora-loora-loora-lay,
Christ the King was born today;
Hark the Herald Angels say,
It's Christmas in the harbour.

Toora-loora-loora-lay,
Christ the King was born today;
Hark the Herald Angels say,
It's Christmas in the harbour.

Toora-loora-loora-lay,
Christ the King was born today;
Hark the Herald Angels say,
It's Christmas in the harbour.
