John Williams Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Merry Christmas, merry Christmas
Ring the Hogwarts bell
Merry Christmas, merry Christmas
Cast a Christmas spell
How wondrous the ways of Christmas
Have a merry Christmas day
Move around the sparkling fire
Have a merry Christmas day

Find a broomstick in your stocking
Singing you the magic of this place
Join the owls joyous flocking
On this merry Christmas day

Ding dong, ding dong
Ring the Hogwarts bell
(Ring the Hogwarts bell)
Ding dong, ding dong
Cast a Christmas spell
Ding dong, ding dong
Make the Christmas morning bright
Fly high across the sky
Light the Christmas night

Merry Christmas, merry Christmas




Ring the Hogwarts bell
Merry Christmas, merry Christmas...
