The Carpenters
It’s Christmas time / Sleep well, little children

Tekst: Al Stillman / Muziek: Victor Young

(1978)






It’s Christmas time and time for a carol
Time to sing about the little King
To fill the bowl and roll out the barrel
Have ourselves a fling



We greet a friend or welcome a stranger
Let him sing or cheer him on his way
And celebrate the child in the manger
Born on Christmas day



Good cheer for you and for me
With pleasure and glee to share
Oh, we’re so happy to be together
On yuletide square



It looks like snow
And falls like snow
Take a moment
Take a look about and say
As snowflakes fall
“Merry Christmas to one and all”

Born on Christmas day



Good cheer for you and for me
With pleasure and glee to share
Oh, we’re so happy to be together
On yuletide square



It looks like snow
And falls like snow
Take a moment
Take a look around and say
As snowflakes fall
“Merry Christmas to one and all”



Sleep well, little children
Wherever you are
Tomorrow is Christmas
Beneath every star
Soon the snowflakes will fall
And tomorrow you’ll see
Every wish, one and all
Waiting under the tree



Sleep well, little children
Pleasant dreams through the night
Tomorrow is Christmas
All merry and bright
Soon you’ll hear the bells ring
Time for dreams to come true
As the world wakes, you dream
“Merry Christmas to you”
