White Christmas


I’m dreaming of a white Christmas


Just like the ones I used to know


Where the tree-tops glisten


and children listen


To hear sleigh bells in the snow



I’m dreaming of a white Christmas


With every Christmas card I write


“May your days be merry and bright


And may all your Christmases be white”






I’m dreaming of ---- 「~を夢見る、~のことを夢に見る」

used to 「(過去に) ~をよくしたものだ」

Where (a white Christmas を説明する関係副詞、あるいは文を区切ってthere の意味と考えてもいいですね。)

May --- be ~  「---が~になりますように(:祈りの文)」




Rudolph, the red nosed reindeer


Rudolph, the red nosed reindeer had a very shiny nose


And if you ever saw him, you would even say it glows


All of the other reindeer used to laugh and call him names.


They never let poor Rudolph join in any reindeer games.



Then one foggy Christmas Eve


Santa came to say


'Rudolph with your nose so bright

won't you guide my sleigh tonight?



Then all the reindeer loved him


as they shouted out with glee


Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer


you'll go down in history




All of the other reindeer

reindeer 「トナカイ」は複数のはずなのに、s がついていませんね。deer「鹿」、と同様、reindeer 「トナカイ」は単複同形で、複数でも形が変わりません。fish 「魚」と同様です。


call one namesは「ののしる、悪口を言う」という意味の熟語です。

go down in history も「歴史に名を残す」の決まり文句です。


And if you ever saw him, you would even say it glows


ever saw him は「万一彼を見たら」

would even say 「~とさえ言うかもしれないね」

with your nose so bright はwith の付帯状況というもので、





Santa Claus is coming to town


You better watch out


You better not cry


Better not pout


I'm telling you why


Santa Claus is coming to town



He's making a list,


And checking it twice;


Gonna find out who's naughty and nice.


Santa Claus is coming to town





You better は You’d better すなわち You had better 「あなたは~すべきだ」という表現で had になっているのは現在の事実に反することを言う仮定的表現(昔は You were better +動詞原形で使われていた)です。

had better は助動詞として使われますので、否定形は後ろにnotを付けます。 had better not 「~しないほうがよい」となります。

watch out 「気をつける」のout は強調の副詞。

Santa Claus is coming to town. の be coming は近い未来を表わす進行形です。

Gonna はHe is going to の省略形。


最後はちょっと大人っぽく、お馴染み、マライア・キャリー Mariah Careyの

All I want for Christmas is You「クリスマスに欲しいのはあなただけ」。

All I want for Christmas is you


I don't want a lot for Christmas


There is just one thing I need


I don't care about the presents 


underneath the Christmas tree


I just want you for my own


More than you could ever know


Make my wish come true


All I want for Christmas is you, yeah.





More than you could ever know

これも仮定法で could になっているのは「知ることができたとしても」で ever が入っているので全体は、「たとえ知ることができたとしても、それ以上に」という表現になるのです。


make my wish come true は使役の表現で make --- 原形不定詞(to をつけない不定詞)で「~に---させる」となり「私の願いを、実現させる」となります
