Michele’s Favorite Christmas Songs: “Snoopy’s Christmas”

I remember this from my childhood.  Here is a link to the RoyalGuardsman singing the song. 

 

“Snoopy’s Christmas”

O Tannenbaum, O Tannenbaum, 

Du kannst mir sehr gefallen! 

 

The news had come out in the First World War

The bloody Red Baron was flying once more 

The Allied command ignored all of it’s men 

And called on Snoopy to do it again. 

Was the night before Christmas, 40 below 

When Snoopy went up in search of his foe 

He spied the Red Baron, fiercely they fought 

With ice on his wings Snoopy knew he was caught. 

 

Christmas bells those Christmas bells 

Ring out from the land

Asking peace of all the world 

And good will to man

 

The Baron had Snoopy dead in his sights 

He reached for the trigger to pull it up tight 

Why he didn’t shoot, well, we’ll never know 

Or was it the bells from the village below. 

 

Christmas bells those Christmas bells 

Ringing through the land 

Bringing peace to all the world 

And good will to man 

 

The Baron made Snoopy fly to the Rhine 

And forced him to land behind the enemy lines

Snoopy was certain that this was the end 

When the Baron cried out, “Merry Christmas, my friend!”

 The Baron then offered a holiday toast 

And Snoopy, our hero, saluted his host 

And then with a roar they were both on their way 

Each knowing they’d meet on some other day. 

 

Christmas bells those Christmas bells 

Ringing through the land 

Bringing peace to all the world 

And good will to man
