There's a white Christmas in my hometown,
Where the streets are snowy, shining bright;
And the lights on all the trees are burning,
For old Santa's sure to come this very night.

There are jingle bells and Christmas carols singing,
By the children who are walking in the street;
Folks are smiling and they're saying Merry Christmas,
For there's joy in their hearts as they meet.

Oh, the Christmas chimes are ringing in the tower,
Jingle Bells can be heard all around;
Time for all to go and wait for Santa's coming,
'Cause it's Merry Christmas here in my hometown.

I can hear the reindeer in the distance,
All the sleigh bells are ringing loud and clear;
Little eyes are closed in their slumber,
They're all waiting for old Santa to appear.

Oh, the Christmas chimes are ringing in the tower,
Jingle Bells can be heard all around;
Time for all to go and wait for Santa's coming,
'Cause it's Merry Christmas here in my hometown.
