Let's spend Christmas in Frisco.
Who knows? Maybe we'll get snow!
No matter which way the wind blows,
Let's spend Christmas In Frisco!

Let's spend Christmas In Frisco.
Stay home, and save all our dough.
There's nowhere that we have to go.
Let's spend Christmas In Frisco.

We'll make soup from scratch in the fireplace.
We'll wake up and run a foot race,
to the Christmas tree here in our place.
Let's spend Christmas In Frisco.

Let's spend Christmas in Frisco.
There's something I want to know.
Do you know that I love you so?
Let's spend Christmas In Frisco!

Let's spend Christmas In Frisco.
Let's spend Christmas In Frisco.

Merry Christmas San Francisco!
Stay safe!

That works Guy! Merci!
I wonder about the 'face' Line if it might be better if the Singer-Character says:
"I want to see the look on your face!"
That makes it about her, the Love-Interest Character.

I may just replace 'on our face' with 'on your face'
or change the line for
See that fine look /on your face /

I can imagine Michael Bubl performing this song...

Merry Christmas!

I did a french adaptation called "Noel a la maison" which means "Christmas at home"

Lyrics in french: You may use google translate to understand what it means...

NOL LA MAISON (#508)
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Paroles et musique: Guy E. Trpanier, 2020.

Intro: 4 mesures (en Mi)

C'est Nol la maison
La famille est runie
Parmi les grands et les petits
a jase fort au salon

C'est Nol la maison
Les enfants sont excits
Devant les cadeaux emballs
Chacun y cherche son nom

On partage ensemble un bon repas chaud
En se rappelant des souvenirs
la distribution des cadeaux
Chacun porte un grand sourire

C'est Nol la maison
Profitons de ce grand jour
Pour exprimer tout notre amour
C'est Nol la maison

Interlude: 8 mesures

On partage ensemble un bon repas chaud
En se rappelant des souvenirs
la distribution des cadeaux
Chacun porte un grand sourire

C'est Nol la maison
Profitons de ce grand jour
Pour exprimer tout notre amour
C'est Nol la maison

C'est Nol la maison
C'est Nol la maison
