The Chipmunk Christmas Song

(from Dolores Sand’s CD, manitowi-kîsikâw)

Christmas, Christmas time is near
Time for toys and time for cheer
We’ve been good but we can’t last
Hurry Christmas, hurry fast.

Want a plane that loops the loop
Me, I want a hula hoop
We can hardly stand the wait
Please Christmas don’t be late

wīpac ka-manitowikīsikāw*
mētawēwina ka-mēkihk
nimiyo-awāsisīwinān
namoy māka ētikwē kinwēs

pimihākan ninitawēyihtēn
ēkwa niya wawiyēyāpiy
nisaskaci-pa-pēhonān
ka-manitowikīsikāk

*Original Cree translation of this and other Christmas songs and carols by Dolores Sand.

  1. Hello. The music file for the Chipmunk Christmas Song has stopped working. Could it please be fixed? If not, do you have information on how I would be able to buy Dolores Sand’s Christmas CD?

    1. Thanks for letting me know. I’ve been travelling, and will have to to replace the file once I’ve got the cd and cd-drive handy.
