"How Many Sleeps 'til Christmas?" is The Speks' first original Christmas song for kids. It was written from the point of view of a four-year-old child. We were very lucky to have the opportunity to record it with the children's choir from Gaelscoil Donncha Rua in Shannon, Co. Clare, Ireland. Sing along and sing loud!


Lyrics for How Many Sleeps 'til Christmas?

Verse 1
I love the story of Baby Jesus read it to me please again
With Mary, Joseph, all the Angels and the Three Wise Men
They brought Jesus lots of presents, shepherds brought along their sheep
Let’s put up the crib tonight before I go to sleep

How many sleeps ‘til Christmas? It seems so far away
I wish that I could close my eyes and wake on Christmas day
For Jesus’ birthday party I hope that we’ll get snow
We’ll blow the candles out, is canfaimid Nollaig Shona dó

Verse 2
Our Christmas tree is in the window - fairy lights and candles too
I’ve hung my stocking by the fire place Santa’ll be here soon
I’ll leave out some milk and biscuits, carrots for the reindeer too
He’ll leave a two-wheel bike for me and a jewellery box for you

Repeat Chorus
