Let's get away from sleigh bells, let's get away from snow 
Let's make a break some Christmas, Dear, I know the place to go 
How'd ya like to spend Christmas on Christmas Island? 
How'd ya like to spend the holiday away across the sea? 
How'd ya like to spend Christmas on Christmas Island? 
How'd ya like to hang a stocking on a great big coconut tree? 

How'd ya like to stay up late, like the islanders do? 
Wait for Santa to sail in with your presents in a canoe. 
If you ever spend Christmas on Christmas Island 
You will never stray for everyday 
Your Christmas dreams come true. 

How'd ya like to stay up late like the islanders do? 
Wait for Santa to sail in with your presents in a canoe 
If you ever spend Christmas on Christmas Island 
You will never stray, for everyday 
Your Christmas dreams come true 
On Christmas Island your dreams come true.
