What a wondrous holiday. We will sing and we will play!

Twirl and spin, whirl around.

‘til the dreidl hits the ground.

Mele Kalikimaka – By R. Alex Anderson, arr. Jay Althouse

“Jingle Bells” upon a steel guitar;

Through the palms we see the same bright star.

 

Mele Kalikimaka is the thing to say

On a bright Hawaiian Christmas day.

That’s the island greeting that we send to you

From the land where palm trees sway.

 

Here we know that Christmas will be green and bright.

The sun will shine by day and all the stars at night.

Mele Kalikimaka is Hawaii’s way to say Merry Christmas to you.

Mele Kalikimaka is Hawaii’s way to say Merry Christmas,

A very, very, merry, merry Christmas,

To say Merry Christmas to you.
