昔となりのおしゃれなおねえさんは  
クリスマスの日 私に云った
今夜8時になれば 
サンタが家にやって来る

ちがうよそれは絵本だけのおはなし
そういう私にウインクして
でもね大人になれば
あなたもわかる そのうちに

恋人がサンタクロース  
本当はサンタクロース
つむじ風追い越して
恋人がサンタクロース  
背の高いサンタクロース
雪の街から来た

あれから、いくつ冬がめぐり来たでしょう
今も彼女を、思い出すけど
ある日、遠い街へと
サンタがつれて行ったきり

そうよ明日になれば 私も
きっとわかるはず

恋人がサンタクロース  
本当はサンタクロース 
プレゼントをかかえて
恋人がサンタクロース  
寒そうにサンタクロース 
雪の街から来る

恋人がサンタクロース
本当はサンタクロース
つむじ風追い越して
恋人がサンタクロース
背の高いサンタクロース
私の家に来る

Mukashi tonari no oshare na oneesan wa
Kurisumasu no hi watashi ni itta
Kon'ya hachiji ni nareba
Santa ga uchi ni yatte kuru

Chigau yo sore wa ehon dake no ohanashi
Sou iu watashi ni uinku shite
Demo ne otona ni nareba
Anata mo wakaru sono uchi ni

Koibito ga santa kuroosu
Hontou wa santa kuroosu
tsumuji kaze oikoshite
Koibito ga santa kuroosu
Se no takai santa kuroosu
yuki no machi kara kita

Are kara ikutsu fuyu ga megurikita deshou
Ima mo kanojo wo omoidasu kedo
Aru hi tooi machi e to
Santa ga tsurete ittakiri

Sou yo ashita ni nareba
Watashi mo kitto wakaru hazu

Koibito ga santa kuroosu
Hontou wa santa kuroosu
Purezento wo kakaete
Koibito ga santa kuroosu
Samusou ni santa kuroosu
Yuki no machi kara kuru

Koibito ga santa kuroosu
Hontou wa santa kuroosu
Tsumuji kaze oikoshite
Koibito ga santa kuroosu
Se no takai santa kuroosu
Watashi no uchi ni kuru

Translation

 

Long ago the stylish older girl from next door
On Christmas day she said to me
Tonight when the clock strikes eight
Santa will come in to the house

No way, that's just a story from picture books
As I said that, she winked at me
But say, when you are an adult
You too will understand one of these days

My love is Santa Claus
It really is Santa Claus
Passing in front of the whirlwind
My love is Santa Claus
The very tall Santa Claus
Who came from the city of snow

Since then so many winters have come around
But even now I remember her
One day to the distant city
Santa will just take me away there

That's right, when it becomes tomorrow
I too should surely understand it

My love is Santa Claus
It really is Santa Claus
Carrying presents in his arms
My love is Santa Claus
Looking so cold, Santa Claus
Who comes from the city of snow

My love is Santa Claus
It really is Santa Claus
Passing in front of the whirlwind
My love is Santa Claus
The very tall Santa Claus
Who comes in to my house
