1.
A vint-i-cinc de desembre,
fum, fum, fum.
Ha nascut un minyonet
ros i blanquet, ros i blanquet;
Fill de la Verge Maria,
n'és nat en una establia.
Fum, fum, fum.

2.
Aquí dalt de la muntanya,
fum, fum, fum,
si n'hi ha dos pastorets
abrigadets, abrigadets;
amb la pell i la samarra,
mengen ous i botifarra.
Fum, fum, fum

3.
Qui dirà més gran mentida?
fum, fum fum,
ja respon el majoral
amb gran cabal, amb gran cabal;
jo faré deu mil camades
amb un salt totes plegades.

1.
On December five and twenty,
Foom, foom, foom!
For the love of us is giv'n
The holy Infant, Son of Heav'n,
Of the Virgin, Joseph's bride,
To all the earth good will be tiding,
Foom, foom, foom!

2.
Little birds from out the forest,
Foom, foom, foom!
All your fledglings leave behind,
And seek the infant Savior kind.
Come, and build a downy nest
To warm the lovely Baby blessed,
Foom, foom, foom!

3.
Little stars up in the heavens,
Foom, foom, foom!
If you see the Baby cry,
O, do not answer with a sigh!
Rather, lighten up the sky
With Heav'ns beams of radiant brightness,
Foom, foom, foom!

1.
Veinticinco de Diciembre,
fum, fum, fum.
Como un sol nació Jesús,
radiando luz, radiando luz.
De María era hijo;
un establo fué su cuna,
fum, fum, fum.
