Jingle bells upon a steel guitar
Through the palms we see the same bright star
Mele Kalikimaka is the thing to say
On a bright Hawaiian Christmas day
That's the island greeting that we send to you
From the land where palm trees sway

Here we know that Christmas will be green and bright
The sun to shine by day and all the stars at night

Mele Kalikimaka is Hawaiʻi's way
To say Merrry Christmas
A very Merry Christmas
To say Merry Christmas to you
