charlie brown christmas cd“A Charlie Brown Christmas” was the first TV special featuring the cartoon characters created by Charles M. Schulz. The music for the show was written by jazz composer Vince Guaraldi, and TV executives didn’t think audiences would like it at all. But they did. One of the most popular songs from the show is “Christmas Time is Here.” These are the lyrics.

Christmas Time is Here Lyrics
by Vince Guaraldi

Christmas Brown Christmas treeChristmas time is here
Happiness and cheer
Fun for all that children call
Their favorite time of the year

Snowflakes in the air
Carols everywhere
Olden times and ancient rhymes
Of love and dreams to share

Sleigh bells in the air
Beauty everywhere
Yuletide by the fireside
And joyful memories there

Christmas time is here
We’ll be drawing near
Oh, that we could always see
Such spirit through the year
Oh, that we could always see
Such spirit through the year…
