Original lyrics by James Pierpont. Sung to the tune of “Jingle Bells.”

Daidí Nollaig

Bualadh bos, bualadh bos,
Buailimis go léir,
Tá Daidí Nollaig ag tíocth anocht
Anuas an simléar.
Ó, bualadh bos, bualadh bos,
Buailimis go léir,
Tá Daidí Nollaig ag tíocth anocht,
Anuas an simléar.
Tá’n Nollaig buailte linn,
Tá áthas insan aer,
Tá sneachta ar an talamh,
Tá réaltaí insan spéir.
Táimid ag dul a chodladh,
Is tá ár stocaí réidh,
Tá Daidí Nollaig ag tíocth anocht,
Anuas an simléar.
Ó, bualadh bos, bualadh bos,
Buailimis go léir,
Tá Daidí Nollaig ag tíocth anocht,
Ó, bualadh bos, bualadh bos,
Buailimis go léir,
Tá Daidí Nollaig ag tíocth anocht.

Father Christmas

Clap your hands, clap your hands,
Clap hands everyone (all of us),
Father Christmas is coming tonight
Down the chimney.
Clap your hands, clap your hands
Clap hands everyone (all of us),
Father Christmas is coming tonight
Down the chimney.
Christmas is coming near us,
Joy is in the air,
Snow is on the ground,
Stars are in the sky,
We are going to sleep,
Our stockings are ready,
Father Christmas is coming tonight,
Down the chimney.
Clap your hands, clap your hands,
Clap hands everyone (all of us),
Father Christmas is coming tonight
Clap your hands, clap your hands,
Clap hands everyone (all of us),
Father Christmas is coming tonight
