Lyrics on It's Always Christmas with You and Go Santa Go

Ding dong! merrily on high
In heav'n the bells are ringing:
Ding dong! verily the sky
Is riv'n with Angel singing.

Hosanna in excelsis!
Hosanna in excelsis!

E'en so here below, below,
Let steeple bells be swungen,
And "Io, io, io!"
By priest and people sungen.


Pray you, dutifully prime
Your matin chime, ye ringers;
May you beautifully rime
Your evetime song, ye singers.



  • The Wiggles appear in the 2011 and 2013 versions of the videos, but not the 1996 and 1997 versions.
  • The 1996 version is reused for the instrumental in "Go, Santa, Go!" but with the trumpet edited out.
  • An abandoned 1996 film clip reused the set from The Cockroaches' video Some Kind Of Girl.
