Mele Kalikimaka via Chinese, Arabic, and German


Mele Kalikimaka is to say,
In bright Hawaiian vacation birth
This is what we sent to you, a tribute to the island
From the land where palm trees influence
Here we know that the Holiday Birth will be green and bright
The sun will one day all the stars shine at night
Mele Kalikimaka Hawaiian way to say Merry Holiday

The Marvelous Toy, via Korean, Irish, and Finnish

When I was just a little boy
Total health and joy,
My father's ear for one night
And gave me a toy.
it olihyvännäköinen
In the light of many colors
Been left I can see it at the moment,
It oliminun heart.

He moves to the "zip" to go "Bob" stop,
Stand still, "Whirrr."
I did not know what it was, that I would never have thought of.

I picked up the first time
I was a great surprise
Button up were two big reasons to the right
In other words, it looked like big green eyes
First, you press one then the other
Then I twisted the lid
When I lay down again, here is what I did:

The first marched left and then marched right
and marssivattuoli
I can see where it went
went even
I started to cry, but my father laugh
Since he knew that I could come
Stone around my surprise, when I toy
Chugging will behind.

Years, went to take a look at too fast
I have my own little boy
And yesterday I gave him a
My wonderful little toy:
His eyes nearly popped right
And he did squeal with delight!
I only know one of us, that
But he, like I love it!

Amazingly close to the original. It Feels Like Christmas via Afrikaans, Catalan, and a language I'd never heard of, Gujarati (it has a lovely script).

It is the singing of a street corner choir
The house is heated by fire
It feels like Christmas , like a true

Elsewhere along with a cup of kindess
A sweet reunion with a friend or a brother
All the places you find love it feels like Christmas

The heart of season
A special time of caring
Ways of love made ​​clear
In this holy season
Message , if you listen
It lasts all year

The second is to provide gifts
His mother was a pair of gloves
This Christmas think that we can show love in all ways

Part of the youth will always remember
It is the summer of the soul in December
To do your best when you really love, it feels like Christmas

The heart of season
A special time of caring
Ways of love made ​​clear
In this holy season
Message , if you listen
It lasts all year

It is the singing of a street corner choir
The house is heated by fire
It feels like Christmas , like a true
It feels like Christmas , like a true
It feels like Christmas
It feels like Christmas
It feels like Christmas

A song that can only be improved by this exercise (and it is!),
Christmas Shoes, via Tamil, Italian, and German

It's Christmas time is almost
I was not in another row
Tryin' or two to buy the last gift
In fact, in the mood for Christmas

I stopped before
A boy with anxiety
Ponracurru stimulation of children
In his hands he held a pair of shoes

His clothes are worn and old
It was dirty from head to toe
When it time to give to them,
I could not believe what I heard

Lord, I want my mother to buy these shoes , please
E' at Christmas, these shoes are just her size
Lord, you can quickly says Papa there is not much time
You see them been sick for a while"
I know these shoes would make them smile
Mama meets Jesus tonight I want you to look beautiful

For many years, while he was counting pennies
Then the cashier, "Son, there's enough here," said
Raza in your pocket தேடிக்காணப்பட்டுள்த்தார்
Then he turned and looked at me

His mother had a good Christmas in our house, "said
Though the years, it has not
Lord, tell me what I will do
I somehow" has her buy these shoes for Christmas

So I want to help him, said the money
I'll never forget the look on his face when
"Pottikalaiye uncle are very nice"

Lord, I want my mother to buy these shoes, please
E' at Christmas, these shoes are just her size
Lord, you can quickly says Papa there is not much time
You see them been sick for a while"
I know these shoes would make them smile
Mama meets Jesus tonight I want you to look beautiful

I caught a glimpse of the sky with love and
He thanked me and ran out of
I knew that God had sent the little boy
Remember what Christmas is all about

Lord, I want my mother to buy these shoes, please
E' at Christmas, these shoes are just her size
Lord, you can quickly says Papa there is not much time
You see them been sick for a while"
I know these shoes would make them smile
Mama meets Jesus tonight I want you to look beautiful

I want to look beautiful
If the mother meets Jesus tonight

I didn't notice this line when I posted it, but rereading it made me laugh

The "Santa and Jesus are white" news stories made me think of one of the lovely Burt Carols, "Some Children See Him" - via Japanese, Yoruba, and Spanish.

Some children see him lily white
Jesus had a child born tonight.
Some children see him lily white
Fair and fabric tassel.
Children, who see brown and bronze
Disposition of Heav'n is down to earth.
Children, who see brown and bronze
Hair black slaves.

Children, who are consulted almond eyes
Salvador kneeling next to us.
Children, who are consulted almond eyes
The yellow tone.
Children, who is black, please refer to them.
Who played Mary prayed.
Children, who is black, please refer to them.
Oh, and you! Too, and like!

The children in each different place
Face of Jesus
And you ask, but the light of the blessing,
I have been filled with sacred fire.
I put part of each line, O
And his heart and such offer,
I adore the boy king now.
'It's the night' s love!

Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree via Zulu, Estonian, and Portuguese

(I think "Later we will have a pumpkin and we will do something cool" will be my plan for this year's Christmas.)

Rocking around the Christmas tree
The House at Christmas party
Mistletoe hung where you can see
After trying to quit smoking

Rocking around the Christmas tree,
Let the spirit of Christmas ring
Later we will have a pumpkin
and we will do something cool.

You will find compassion
you feel when you hear
Voices singing let's be fun
Deck the Halls boughs of holly

Rocking around the Christmas tree,
have a happy holiday
Everyone's dancing merrily
New old.

You will find compassion
you feel when you hear
Voices singing let's be fun
Deck the Halls boughs of holly

Navigate through the tree,
have a happy holiday
Everyone's dancing merrily
New old.

Fright

Twelve Days to Christmas from "She Loves Me" with all the in-between bits removed, and run through French, German, and Italian (and relatively unchanged)

Twelve days until Christmas
Twelve days until Christmas
A lot of time to do your Christmas shopping
These are the people, the time to buy, time for shopping, time
These are the people to take the time to purchase at their convenience
Twelve days until Christmas
Twelve days until Christmas
Look at the way they do their Christmas shopping
You can go shopping and to remain calm and quiet
These are the people that we envy and the people we hate!

Nine days to Christmas
Nine days to Christmas
Enough time to do your Christmas shopping
These are the people who buy in from time to time, store, time enough
Sensible people who organize the time available
Nine days to Christmas
Nine days to Christmas
Enough time to do your Christmas shopping
These are the people who plan their days wisely and well
These are the people who buy over time, and they can go to hell!

Four days of Christmas
Four days of Christmas
Just enough time to do your Christmas shopping
These are the people who buy in time, just in time, just in time
These are the people who calculate with clinical precision
Four days of Christmas
Four days of Christmas
These are people who, without a second
Full of cold performance
Head of bile
Never too early and never too late
And they are the worst of all!

Christmas
Christmas
Not enough time to do our Christmas shopping
We are not the ones who saw through time shopple
We are not the sheeple that emerged in the period
We are not people who shopped over time
Over time, not enough time bought
We are the people who always wait until it's too late, oh!
Christmas
Christmas
How can we make our Christmas shopping?
Because we have never had to delay for as long as you remember that?
Part of the family is not getting a Christmas to all!

This went through about six re-translations and wound up kind of pervy. But in a festive way.
........
I do not want to build a site at Christmas
It's just one thing I need
I do not care about the presents
under the tree

You just want to keep me
You're too stupid to know
Make my lust come true
All I want for Christmas to all of you.

I do not want to build a site at Christmas
It's just one thing I need
I do not care about the presents
under the tree.

I do not need to hang my dress
On the place that's burning down,
Santa Claus will not make me orgasm
With a toy on Christmas.

You just want to keep me
You're too stupid to know
Make my lust come true
All I want for Christmas to you all
If you have a baby.

Oh, I did not ask for this Christmas
I will not even Snowy Sexy,
I'll just wait
At the foot of Mistle.

I do not make a list and send
Nick at the North Pole with God
I do not even want to stay awake
Listen to the magic reindeer click.

So I just want you here tonight
I have a pain in my stomach tightened
What else can I do?
Baby all I want for Christmas to you all
If you have a baby.

Oh, all the lights on
So I am everywhere
And the sound of children
There is an atmosphere of laughter.

And everyone sings
I hear sleigh bells ringing us
Santa, bring me the one I really need?
Will not you take your child from me?

Oh, I do not want to build Web pages Christmas
That's all I want
I want to see my baby
Standing right above my door.

Oh, you just want to keep me
You're too stupid to know
Make my lust come true
Baby, all I want for Christmas
If you have a baby.

All I want for Christmas , you , dear
All I want for Christmas , you , dear
All I want for Christmas , you , dear
All I want for Christmas , you , dear
