Album releases[]


Opening credits[]

Bob: Hang a star upon the tree
All: It's Christmas again
Big Bird: Candy canes for you and me
All: It's Christmas again

With jingle bells
and pine tree smells
and peace on earth to men
So wave the turkey leg on high
Hooray for mince and pumpkin pie
And Santa Claus up in the sky
It's Christmas again

Elmo: There's smiling Christmas faces
and a lot of Christmas cheer
Oscar: Yuck!
Which really makes me grateful that
it's only once a year

Oh, buy a Christmas sapling
from a monster who is blue
It will make you happier
and I'll be happy, too

Elves (not in the album):
We wish them while we work
making toys for Santa's sleigh
When Christmas time is over
we get a holiday

All: [Chorus]


All: Hang the tinsel on the tree,
It's Christmas again.

Elmo: Again!

All: Candy canes for you and me,
It's Christmas again.

Elmo: Again!

All: Again, again, again, again, again, again, again!
They're putting toys on Santa's sleigh
Today is just like yesterday
'Cause Christmas hasn't gone away!

Elmo: It's Christmas again!

Spring version[]

All: Cherry blossoms in the trees,
It's Christmas again.

Tell ladybugs and bumblebees,
It's Christmas again.

The birds of spring go caroling in every glade and glen,
the snow has melted clean away.

There's only grass for Santa's sleigh,
and though it's very warm for May.

It's Christmas again!

(On the album, the last line was "It's Christmas...ONCE...AGAIN!")

Independence Day version (not on the album)[]

Carolers: Happy Independence Day,
It's Christmas again!

Let the marching music play,
It's Christmas again!

So ring your bells and sing noels
To tell the minute men.

The stars and stripes are waving high,
The fireworks are in the sky.

It's on the fourth day of July!

It's Christmas again!

Final verse (not on the album)[]

Carol singers (hoarsely): Hang the star upon the tree,
It's Christmas again.

Candy canes for you and me,
It's Christmas again.

With jingle bells
and pine tree smells
and peace...(they trail off and start coughing because they've lost their voices after singing for a whole year)
