Christmas Time Is Here (Cover Song)

by Rick Lee James

supported by


"Christmas Time Is Here" is a popular Christmas song written for the 1965 TV special A Charlie Brown Christmas, One of the very first animated Christmas special produced for network TV in the United States, Since the song had become a hit, it was then released on the album A Charlie Brown Christmas as two tracks: an instrumental version by the Vince Guaraldi Trio and a vocal version as sung by the cast of the television special. This is simply my tribute to a great songwriter and musician, Mr. Vince Guaraldi. I play all the instruments and sing all the parts on the track.


Christmas Time Is Here
Written by
Maurice Lee Mendelson
Vince Guaraldi

Christmas time is here
Happiness and cheer
Fun for all that children call
Their favorite time of the year

Snowflakes in the air
Carols everywhere
Olden times and ancient rhymes
Of love and dreams to share

Sleigh bells in the air
Beauty everywhere
Yuletide by the fireside
And joyful memories there

Christmas time is here
We'll be drawing near
Oh, that we could always see
Such spirit through the year
Oh, that we could always see
Such spirit through the year
