Classic Chinese Christmas Song Links

Every year around Christmastime, my “Christmas Songs in Chinese” blog post from 2006 gets a lot of action. I’ve been seeing a lot of requests there for lyrics, and I tried to help out with that, but I found the Chinese versions of these Christmas songs’ lyrics surprisingly difficult to track down. If anyone can offer links to those lyrics, it would be appreciated by many.

Anyway, you may enjoy these Sinosplice Christmas music posts from the archive:

  1. Great Great Great. Thanks for the links!

  2. Don’t know if you ever managed to find these:
    We Three Kings of Orient Are:

    The Little Drummer Boy:

    No luck with “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen.” It seems the title has multiple translations, mostly 快樂的上帝.

  3. I should have listened to 小鼓手 again. Definitely not The Little Drummer Boy.
