The penultimate day. Some people working half-days in offices and elsewhere others off already to prepare the big dinner.
And always a day for the pub in Ireland in the past to meet up with friends before everyone goes off to see their families.


It’s Christmas Eve

It’s Christmas Eve
The day before Christmas
What’ll I get on my wish list?
Wait and see!

It’s Christmas Eve
The night before showtime
Santa’s on overtime
But the elves party!

It’s Christmas
Christmas Eve! x2

It’s Christmas Eve
A night full of such fun
The night that the child comes
Are you ready?

Christmas Eve
A day to meet old friends
For coffee and Muffins
Or a hot todee!

It’s Christmas
Christmas Eve! x2

It’s Christmas Eve
The manger and stable
Joseph Mary and Angels
And a little baby

It’s Christmas Eve
Before the big dinners
The night all us sinners
Become absolvees

It’s Christmas
Christmas Eve! x2

It’s Christmas Eve
The day before Chrimbo
Catch a glimpse of the light show
On the plasma Telly

It’s Christmas Eve
Don’t stay up too late
We don’t want to tempt fate
Now Do we?

It’s Christmas Eve
A few minutes from Xmiss
I don’t wanna hex this
So it’s bedtime for me (Good night from me!)

It’s Christmas
Christmas Eve! x2


from Christmas is With Us (Tá An Nollaig Linn), released December 16, 2020
