Here it is now Christmas Eve,
and I'm out here on the sea,
Wishin' I could be with the family;
As the boat tosses to and fro,
I can see the Christmas lights glow,
In our home, dear, on our Christmas tree.

Christmas at sea, Christmas at sea,
Christmas at sea, Christmas at sea,
oh, how I miss my family;
It's the time of good cheer,
but I miss the one so dear,
For I'm spending my Christmas at sea.

Oh, a seaman's bound to roam,
and he stays seldom home,
For he makes his living on the foam;
But when Christmas bells ring,
and church choirs sing,
Oh, his heart longs to spend Christmas at home.

Christmas at sea, Christmas at sea,
Christmas at sea, Christmas at sea,
oh, how I miss my family;
It's the time of good cheer,
but I miss the one so dear,
For I'm spending my Christmas at sea.

Christmas at sea, Christmas at sea,
Christmas at sea, Christmas at sea,
oh, how I miss my family;
It's the time of good cheer,
but I miss the one so dear,
For I'm spending my Christmas at sea.

Oh, I'm spending my Christmas at sea.
