1.
Twenty-fifth day of December,
Fum, fum, fum!
Twenty-fifth day of December,
Fum, fum, fum!
Like the brightest light of morning
Was the Baby Jesus born,
To the Virgin Mother Mary
He was born in a stable dreary,
Fum, fum, fum!

2.
Birds up in the treetops singing,
Fum, fum, fum!
Birds up in the treetops singing,
Fum, fum, fum!
Leave your babies now and fly
to where the Holy Babe does lie,
Build a nest for Him to sleep in,
Soft and safe wherein to keep Him,
Fum, fum, fum!

3.
Bright stars shining in the heavens,
Fum, fum, fum!
Bright stars shining in the heavens,
Fum, fum, fum!
If you see the Baby crying
Do not answer with a sigh,
But pour all your brightness on Him,
Banish darkness all around Him,
Fum, fum, fum!

Veinticinco de diciembre,
Fum, fum, fum!
Veinticinco de diciembre,
Fum, fum, fum!
Nacido ha por nuestro amor,
El Niño Dios, el Niño Dios;
Hoy de la Virgen María
En esta noche tan fría
Fum, fum, fum!

2.
Pajaritos de los bosques,
Fum, fum, fum!
Pajaritos de los bosques,
Fum, fum, fum!
Vuestros hijos de coral
Abandonad, abandonad,
Y formad un muelle nido
A Jesús recién nacido,
Fum, fum, fum!

3.
Estrellitas de los cielos,
Fum, fum, fum!
Estrellitas de los cielos,
Fum, fum, fum!
Que a Jesús miráis llorar
Y no lloráis, y no lloráis,
Alumbrad la noche oscura
Con vuestra luz clara y pura,
Fum, fum, fum!
