"Hark! The Herald Angels Sing" - Irish, Greek, Chichewa, Mongolian

See! Herald Angels sing
King was born, "Glory,
And little mercy on earth peace,
God and sinful ways "
Fun for all nations, and will increase
Sky victory target
Announced host of angels
"Christ is born in Bethlehem"

See! Herald Angels sing
"Born the King of Glory"

Christ in heaven, respect
Christ, my Lord,
He comes late notice
This virgin womb:
Covered in flesh the Godhead see,
Carnality Long Life
Blessed is that man
Jesus, our Emmanuel

See! Herald Angels sing
"Born the King of Glory"

Long live heaven born Prince of Peace!
Long live Sun of Justice!
Light brings life
It showed her with healing in his wings;
Gently makes his glory
Born people over the age of
Born to raise the sons of earth
Their second-born babies

See! Herald Angels sing
"Born the King of Glory"

The Christmas Can-Can, run through lots of languages with English in between them, until I felt the second paragraph was sufficiently different from the original:

Christmas season, Christmas here and I love to listen to Christmas carols
Joy and hope and joy, but mostly shopping, shopping, shopping and Thoughts
Christmas. Christmas sleigh bells and reindeer wear here
I want to hear thousands of times a year, played music and songs

I am the same song 20 times and only Halloween (Joy to the World) heard
It's cold outside (Deck the halls with sacred branches) are

Christmas season, Christmas here and I love to listen to Christmas carols
(The Herald Angels Sing joy listen)
Joy and hope and joy, but mostly shopping, shopping, shopping and Thoughts

Christmas season, at the beginning of each year,
Keep plastic Christmas trees in October
Shop till you lose it, select shopping
Gem Hill sit and watch
Rudolf, cold, a small team and Scrooge price or Charlie Brown

Time ...
Christmas may be
If you can not dance well, you can not (do line service) is good
All you need gifts tree, and the thousands of lights that
Wrap and pray for rain
He goes to the closet to find a Christmas sweater them screaming all the way Lyrics (fa-la-la-la-la)
California Christmas Maine Cancer Christmas Halloween

The most beautiful time of the year, mad joy of Christmas
Hey, man, what are you uncomfortable?
It's not just the Jews, Hebrews (Jews, not just Jews)

Dreidel, dreidel, dreidel, I made clay
Only to realize that Christmas is a celebration

Hi, this is certainly not the law
Look! Guard! Here in Santa Claus, Father Christmas, Santa Claus, Father Christmas, Santa (Holy, Holy, holy, holy, holy, holy, holy, holy) comes

If you want to join the parade tin Hey dad, can help
All you need gifts tree, and the thousands of lights that
Wrap and pray for rain
He goes to the closet to find a Christmas sweater them screaming all the way Lyrics (fa-la-la-la-la)
Last Christmas Can-Can as Counter Indiana,

Our final wait
This holiday Sharing
I am joyous Hanukkah, Happy Hanukkah that you wish you Happy Hanukkah
As well as Merry Christmas, Hanukkah and Kwanzaa. happy
Christmas, Happy Hanukkah and M-ry in Kwan-ZAA

"Sleigh Ride" only required German and Japanese to become sufficiently amusing.

Sleigh bells I hear only jingling this
Ring Ting thrilled - Masu Rusugi
Come on, it is a nice weather
We will ride with you for sled

It deviates from the snow
Then, a friend call the "Yoo Fu"
Come on, it is a nice weather
We will ride with you for sled

Vertigo Yap Vertigo Yap dizziness, Yap
let's go
Let's take a look at the snow
We live in a wonderland of snow riding
Vertigo Yap Vertigo Yap Vertigo Yap, it's great
Just I will grip your hand
We will slip along with the song
One of the winter wonderland

Our cheeks are nice and rosy
And we, cozy comfortable
We snuggled as 2 together
It would be a feather of birds

Let us take a look at the road ahead
And I will sing a chorus or two
Come on, it is a nice weather
We will ride with you for sled

There is a birthday party at the Farmer gray house
This is the perfect end to a perfect day
We are a song to sing love to sing without a single stop
We while pop chestnuts in the fireplace
pop! pop! pop!

Happy mood that you can buy in the world do not have anything
When they enter the coffee and pumpkin pie
It will be almost Currier and Ives as image printing
These amazing thing is the thing
We are through our lives, you remember all

Sleigh Ride (English-Latin-Basque-Swedish-Klingon-Japanese-Vietnamese-English)

Jingle Bell jumped ing my feet
Ting was thrilled and ing - ring
And
Can you believe the ride in a sleigh.

If it does not snow
The appellant and a friend. "Yoo hoo"
And
Can you believe the ride in a sleigh.

Lion is enough enough --- is dizzy whimsical
Leave
Come to see the snow.
and we did, they snowy wonderland

Crazy enough - enough dizziness - enough prize, my arm Those flying to Nanjing negligence
You can hold your hand? Or
Cadence dacheg Home Theater
Usually only the winter of believers in case

Heavenly Tao and Earth on Monday is a beautiful rosy cheeks are
Good and comfortable and cozy
Monday We snuggled dacheg Home
I'm a part.

We have in the room.
Monday Chant chorus and the song, like him.
And
Can you believe the ride in a sleigh.

It is light and black and hoeing family.
It and perfect because perfect 1
But the songs that did not stop the music
However, chestnut fireplace dice left, vertical
Honor! Honor! Honor!

But how, the third person
It belongs to the coffee and pumpkin pie
It will be very quick this Currier and Ives Print.
Normal stuff is very good.
I, reminds us about life

Airplane

"In the Bleak Midwinter" - German, Portuguese, Irish, Korean, Azerbaijani

bleak midwinter, frosty wind was moan,
The soil and stone as iron, water like it was hard;
Snow, snow, snow, snow, snow fell
cold midwinter, long ago.

God is our land, I can not hold;
Heaven and earth shall flee when it comes to the king.
hard enough room for a single winter
Lord God Almighty, Jesus Christ.

Teams enough for him, praying day and night,
Mangerful Breastful milk and grass;
Separate ago, an angel enough for him,
Bulls and donkeys and camels, worship.

There are angels and archangels collected,
Cherubim and seraphim are flocking to the airport;
Only his mother's happiness,
Please pray for love and kisses.

I was poor like me, you can give him?
I am a shepherd, I would bring the sheep.
I would take if I was a wise man;
But, in my heart of what we can offer.

And a Happy New Year from the speakers of Danish, Finnish, Dutch, Marathi, and Azerbaijani!

If you get rid of your old familiar
And it was not brought to mind?
An old acquaintance be forgotten that
And the good old days!

So what is the spirit of fantasy day, dear,
The good old days.
We have yet to make a cup o
The good old days!

So, should we kick this thing into gear again?

In honor of Greg Lake's passing, via Arabic, Spanish, Slovak, Welsh, and Igbo:

He said the snow on Christmas
He said that peace in the world
But, but it's raining
A reached tears Virgin Mary
I remember Christmas Day that same morning
Winter faith
Fishing party and the head of the holiday Christmas tree
And his eyes are embedded tinsel and lights

I sell a dream Christmas Day
I sell Silent Night
I was told a story
"Therefore, I am Israel
And believing in Father Christmas Festival
I look at the sky and look happy
"I woke up and yawned as the first light of dawn
I saw it from his point

And hopes that Boxing
I wish you a New Year
All anxiety and grief
Your heart, your eyes
He said the snow on Christmas
He said that peace in the world
Hallelujah Noel, or heaven or hell
Deserved Christmas holiday

Icon101 Grandmother Circulated Reindeer

Right, via English -> Welsh -> Norwegian -> Xhosa -> Japanese, I give you that recent Christmas classic "Grandmother Circulated Reindeer" (formerly known as "Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer").

Grandmother circulated reindeer
On my way home from Christmas Eve at our house
You can say something like Santa Claus
But my grandpa, we believe

The former drinkin 'NOG of great eggs
And when we asked him,
But she had stopped his medicine
Then they tripped over the snow on the door

When they find Christmas on her morning good
Instead of attack
Hoof print on her forehead
Incriminatin "Santa Claus marks his spine

Grandmother circulated reindeer
From our Christmas Eve to our Walkin Home
You can say something like Santa Claus
But my grandpa, we believe

Now, I am proud of everything Grandpa
And Shakein I too
Sachin: Please check with soccer
Drinkin 'beer and play card with cigar bell

This is Christmas with no grandmother
All in the family wearing black clothes
And we can not help but wonder
What if we open gifts and back?

Grandmother circulated reindeer
From our Christmas Eve to our Walkin Home
You can say something like Santa Claus
But my grandpa, we believe

Geese now on the table
And the dessert was made from pigs
Blue and silver candle
This will match with a wonderful hair wig

I warned all my friends and neighbors
I will be careful for myself
You will never get a license
For people who drive sledge play elves

Grandmother circulated reindeer
From our Christmas Eve to our Walkin Home
You can say something like Santa Claus
But my grandpa, we believe!

Ta ra 'wan,

Ieuan "Wonderful Hair Wig" ab Arthur

Frosty goes from America to Scotland to Arabia to China and a few places more. Who knew the beloved character was possessed by a ghost?
----------------------------------
Frosty snowman,
Julie is a happy spirit,
Corn cobs
Buttons to nose and
Two eyes made into coal

Frosty snowman
Because they say it is a myth
He is snowing
But the kids is knowing
How he lived life one day

Some magical mustard
In the old silk hat they found
Because when they put on his head
He dance and go around!

Frosty snowman
He can live
He said children
He can laugh and play
Just like you and me

Frosty snowman
I know that day the sun is hot
So he said, "Do not run
We have some fun
- Before I melt and die."

Down to the city
With a broom stuck in hand
He has runs here and there
Every part of the presence
Said, "Grab me if you can"

He took them through the streets of the city
Claim the traffic police
He only paused for a few seconds
He heard the cry, "Stop!

Frosty snowman
He was in a hurry on the road
But he waved away,
"No crying
I will come back one day. ".

Fat, playing big, big fight
Fat, playing big, big fight
To see frost
