“Fum Fum Fum”  Catalan lyrics

1. A vint-i-cinc de desembre
fum, fum, fum (bis)
Ha nascut un minyonet
ros i blanquet, ros i blanquet;
Fill de la Verge Maria,
n’és nat en una establia.
Fum, fum, fum.

2. Allí dalt de la muntanya
fum, fum, fum (bis)
Si n’hi ha dos pastorets
abrigadets, abrigadets;
amb la pell i la samarra,
menjant ous i botifarra.
Fum, fum, fum.

3. Qui dirà més gran mentida?
Fum, fum, fum (bis)
Ja en respon el majoral
el gran tabal, el gran tabal;
jo en faré deu mil camades
amb un salt totes plegades.
Fum, fum, fum.

4. A vint-i-cinc de desembre
fum, fum, fum (bis)
n’és el dia de Nadal,
molt principal, molt principal,
quan n’eixirem de matines,
farem bones escudines.
Fum, fum, fum.

5. Déu vos do unes santes festes
fum, fum, fum (bis)
amb temps de fred i calor,
i molt millor, i molt millor
fent-ne de Jesús memòria
perquè ens vulgui dalt la glòria.
Fum, fum, fum.

“Fum Fum Fum” English lyrics

1. On this joyful Christmas Day
Sing fum, fum, fum
On this joyful Christmas Day
Sing fum, fum, fum
For a blessed Babe was born
Upon this day at the break of morn
In a manger poor and lowly
Lay the Son of God most holy
Fum, Fum, Fum!

2. Thanks to God for holidays
Sing fum, fum, fum
Thanks to God for holidays
Sing fum, fum, fum
Now we all our voices raise
And sing a song of grateful praise
Celebrate in song and story
All the wonders of His glory
Fum, fum, fum!

3. Praise we now the Lord above,
Sing fum, fum, fum.
Praise we now the Lord above,
Sing fum, fum, fum.
For upon this day at morn,
The wond’rous Son of God was born,
In a manger poor and lowly
Lay the Blessed Babe most holy,
Fum, fum, fum!

“Fum Fum Fum” Spanish lyrics

1. Veinticinco de Diciembre
Fum, Fum, Fum,
Veinticinco de Diciembre
Fum, Fum, Fum,
Un niñito muy bonito,
ha nacido en un portal,
con su carita de rosa,
parece una flor hermosa
fum, fum, fum.

2. Venid, venid pastorcillos,
fum, fum, fum
Venid, venid pastorcillos,
fum fum fum
Venid con la pandereta y
castañuelas al portal,
a adorar al rey del cielo
que ha amanecido en el suelo,
fum, fum, fum!

3. Desde el cielo está mirando
fum, fum, fum
Desde el cielo está mirando
fum, fum, fum
A la Tierra alucinante
que relumbra con su luz,
y la paz del firmamento,
celebrando el nacimiento de Jesús.
A la Tierra alucinante
que relumbra con su luz,
y la paz del firmamento,
celebrando el nacimiento de Jesús.
