  • Christmas time is here again
    Christmas time is here again
    Christmas time is here again
    Christmas time is here again

    Ain't been round since you know when
    Christmas time is here again
    O-U-T spells "out"

    Christmas time is here again
    Christmas time is here again
    Christmas time is here again
    Christmas time is here again

    Ain't been round since you know when
    Christmas time is here again
    O-U-T spells "out"

    Christmas time is here again
    Christmas time is here again
    Christmas time is here again
    Christmas time is here again

    Ain't been round since you know when
    Christmas time...[music continues and fades to background]

    [spoken]

    This is Paul McCartney here, I'd just like to wish you everything you wish yourself for Christmas.

    This is John Lennon saying on behalf of the Beatles, have a very Happy Christmas and a good New Year.

    George Harrison speaking. I'd like to take this opportunity to wish you a very Merry Christmas, listeners everywhere.

    This is Ringo Starr and I'd just like to say Merry Christmas and a really Happy New Year to all listeners

    [a John Lennon pastiche at this point, very hard to understand]

  • Amanda from Gretna, Vtthis song is better than most music out today. God Bless The Beatles.
  • Jay from New Name, NjA good friend from Scotland cleared up the Lennon "Christmas Carol" at the end of Christmas Time (Is Here Again)... here are the lyrics, accurately recorded (for a change):

    And Christmas tames all
    and yer bonnie clay us through...
    Happy Breastling to you, people.
    All our best from me to you.

    And the beasty brangom mutton
    to the hither and little inn
    I'll be struttin' oot ma tether
    to yer arms once back again.
    Och away, bonnie...
  • Bender from East West Virginia, VaI first heard this song back in 1983 when I bought a bootleg of all the Beatles Christmas releases.
  • Eric from Buffalo, NyStill such a silly song made with little or no effort sounds so good. Amazing...
  • Peter Griffin from Quahog, RiCan this even be classified as a song? 0_0 This is more like a little comedy piece than an actual song.
  • Jim from Rosamond, Camost recordings on their chrismas albums were tongue in cheek and never expected to be taken seriously. I believe alot of it was just spur of the moment ad libs. Thats how 'o u t spells out'
    came to be. It was just something thrown in by Ringo.
  • Forrest from Rochester, MnO-U-T spells "out"? What the hell?
  • Dc from Hilo, HiRegarding John Lennon at the end of the song, I found the lyrics:

    And Christmas time is all,
    and your bonnie clay us through.
    Happy breastling to you people
    all out best from me to you.
    When the beasty brangom button
    to the heather and little inn.
    And be strattened oot in matether
    to yer arms once back again.
    Och away, ye bonnie.
  • Dc from Hilo, HiDoes anyone know what John Lennon is saying at the end of this song? Sounds like gibberish or some really british. It sounds kinda funny but have NO idea what he's saying. Any help??
  • Bianca Sanchez from Alburquerque, NmWow. Am I The only one whos heard this? Cool. Good Song!
