Written by Fred W. Longshaw, based on the version recorded by Bessie Smith.


Christmas comes but once a year
And to me it brings good cheer
And to everyone
who loves wine and beer

Happy New Year is after that
Happy I’ll be, that is a fact
That is why, I like to hear
Folks exclaim, that Christmas is here

Christmas bells will ring, real soon
Even in the afternoon
There’ll be a time to swing, at the Christmas Ball
Everyone must watch their step
Or they will loose their rep
Everybody’s full of pep, at the Christmas Ball

Grab your partner one and all
Keep on dancin’ round the hall
Don’t you dare to stall, at the Christmas Ball
If your partner don’t act fair
Don’t worry, there’s some more over there
Takin’ a chance, everywhere, at the Christmas Ball
Takin’ a chance, everywhere, at the Christmas Ball
