Lyrics
The first Noel the angels did say
Was to certain poor shepherds in fields where they lay
In fields where they lay keeping their sheep
On a cold winter’s night that was so deep

Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel
Born is the King of Israel

And they looked up and they saw every star
Shining in the east, beyond them far
And to the earth it gave great light
And so it continued both day and night

Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel
Born is the King, the Ghost of Israel
Noel, Noel, come on sing it with me, Noel, Noel, ooh, ooh
Born is the King, oh yeah
Born, born is the King, the Ghost of Israel

He is the King, ooh
He is, yeah, yeah, He is
Noel, Noel, yeah, yeah, yeah

Català – El Primer Nadal
El primer Nadal els àngels van comentar
Va passar a certs pastors pobres als camps on estaven
Als camps on estaven guardant les seves ovelles
Una nit freda d’hivern que va ser molt intensa

Nadal, Nadal, Nadal, Nadal
Nat és el Rei d’Israel

I van alçar la mirada i van veure totes les estrelles
Il·luminant a l’est, molt més enllà
I a la terra li donaven gran llum
I així va continuar dia i nit

Nadal, Nadal, Nadal, Nadal
Nat és el Rei, el Sant d’Israel
Nadal, Nadal, vinga canteu amb mi, Nadal, Nadal, oh, oh
Nat és el Rei, oh sí
Nat, nat és el Rei, el Sant d’Israel

Ell és el Rei, oh
Ho és, sí, sí, ho és
Nadal, Nadal, sí, sí, sí
