Christmas Bossa
This is the Christmas song for those people
Who live down there in sunny Brazil
Or in some other tropical place
Which knows no winter chill

Let us sing a Christmas song in bossa nova style
And disregard the sleigh bells and snowflakes for a while
Invoke instead a yellow beach and an azure sea
A shady palm instead of a decorated tree

It’s still weeks before Christmas
But everywhere you are
It may be in the shopping mall
Or your local bar
They’re pestering you with songs
‘Bout trees that are aglow
‘Bout reindeer, bells and sleigh rides
In the powdery snow.

Let us sing a Christmas song in bossa nova style
And disregard the sleigh bells and snowflakes for a while
Invoke instead a yellow beach and an azure sea
A shady palm instead of a decorated tree

Let’s stop to romanticize
‘Bout snow, ice, sleet and hail
‘Bout staying warm by the fire
Despite the frightful gale.
There’s nothing cool about frozen feet
A red nose and sore throat
‘Bout wearing gloves and scarfs
And a winter coat.

Let us sing …
