Calypso Noel Christmas Song

Calypso Noel

Year: 1966

Written By: Gordon Krunnfsz

It may sound like it belongs to a much warmer season and would go down with several cocktails but 'Calypso Noel' is still a nice quirky addition to the Christmas soundtrack. It was released by Johnny Mathis for his million-selling 1969 album 'Give Me Your Love for Christmas', which included 11 secular Christmas songs. Mathis did not write the song, it was written 3 years earlier by Gordon Krunnfsz, but his version is the most widely recognised. 'Give Me Your Love for Christmas' was Mathis' third full-holiday album and he would go on to record two more, marking him out as one of the Christmas greats.


Calypso Noel Lyrics

Sing we Noel, sing we joyously Noel!

Joyously sing the news we have to tell!
Born to us in the little village of Bethlehem on this day,
Is the little Christ Child so pure and holy;
He's sleeping there in the hay.

Poor little baby, no other place was found,
Except in a manger with cows and sheep around.

Oh, sing Noel!
Oh, yet the glory of this wee baby was sung by angels so sing Noel!
Oh, sing Noel! fair;
There were Wise Men and shepherds to give Him honor and
Oh, sing Noel! bring Him presents so rare.
