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.
