Japanese & English Lyrics
saa
anata kara merii kurisumasu
watashi kara merii kurisumasu
Santa Claus is coming to town
nee kikoete kuru deshou
suzu no ne ga sugu soko ni
Santa Claus is coming to town

So
Merry Christmas from you
Merry Christmas from me
Santa Claus is coming to town
Hey! You will probably hear it
The sound of bells will be there soon
Santa Claus is coming to town

machikirenaide oyasumi shita ko ni
kitto subarashii purezento motte
saa
anata kara merii kurisumasu
watashi kara merii kurisumasu
Santa Claus is coming to town

For resting children unable to wait
Surely bringing wonderful presents
So
Merry Christmas from you
Merry Christmas from me
Santa Claus is coming to town

saa
anata kara merii kurisumasu
watashi kara merii kurisumasu
Santa Claus is coming to town
nee kikoete kuru deshou
suzu no ne ga sugu soko ni
Santa Claus is coming to town

So
Merry Christmas from you
Merry Christmas from me
Santa Claus is coming to town
Hey! You will probably hear it
The sound of bells will be there soon
Santa Claus is coming to town

kurisumasu ivu wo yubiorikazoeta
osanai omoide mo koyoi natsukashii
saa
anata kara merii kurisumasu
watashi kara merii kurisumasu
Santa Claus is coming to town

We’ve counted down to Christmas Eve on our fingers
This evening is nostalgic in childhood memories
So
Merry Christmas from you
Merry Christmas from me
Santa Claus is coming to town

Minako:
Merry Christmas!! Hey!! Hey!! What did you ask Santa for?
I, you know, asked for a great boyfriend — same thing as last year and the year before.
But, always, I want to fall in love.
And may you as well be visited by a wonderful love.

For resting children unable to wait
Surely bringing wonderful presents
So

Merry Christmas from me
