(verse)
Instead of giving children little dolls and cars,
Santa always brings ?em pianos and guitars.
The people that I love, love cookin' up a storm.
A toast to peace on Christmas eve,
Church on Christmas morn.

(chorus)
It's Christmas in the Big Easy,
The only place I wanna be.
With my brothers and my sisters,
Sharing holiday wishes,
When everyone becomes,
One big family,
It's Christmas in the Big Easy.

(verse)
After gumbo and some crawfish, we wait for Uncle Stan,
To come by with his saxophone, and start the family jam.
All the music and laughter that always warms my heart,
Comes from a spirit that,
Can't be torn apart.

(chorus)
It's Christmas in the Big Easy,
The only place I wanna be.
With my brothers and my sisters,
Sharing holiday wishes,
When everyone becomes,
One big family,
It's Christmas in the Big Easy.

(bridge)
Love those holiday lights so pretty,
Throughout my Crescent City.

(chorus)
It's Christmas in the Big Easy,
The only place I wanna be.
With my brothers and my sisters,
Sharing holiday wishes,
When everyone becomes,
One big family,
It's Christmas in the Big Easy.
