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
namoy māka ētikwē kinwēs

pimihākan ninitawēyihtēn
ēkwa niya wawiyēyāpiy

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