Christmas Island

Tropical Christmas.
Santa drops in by canoe.
Let's go there sometime.

This is another old standard that Bob Dylan recorded for the "Christmas in the Heart" album in 2009. It's ridiculous, though Bob's in good company with other performers of the song, notably the Andrews Sisters and Bing Crosby.

How'd ja like to spend Christmas on Christmas Island? How'd ja like to spend the Holiday away across the sea? How'd ja like to spend Christmas on Christmas Island? How'd ja like to hang your stockin' on a great big coconut tree? How'd ja like to stay up late, like the islanders do Wait for Santa to sail in with your presents in a canoe If you ever spend Christmas on Christmas Island You will never stray, for ev'ry day Your Christmas dreams come true How'd ja like to stay up late, like the islanders do Wait for Santa to sail in with your presents in a canoe If you ever spend Christmas on Christmas Island You will never stray, for ev'ry day Your Christmas dreams come true
