e.g.

(sung to Jingle Bell Rock)

Jingle Bell, Jingle Bell, Jingle’s Stream Rocks,

Jingle’s ships steam, and Jingle’s ships scream,

Shooting and Torping up enemy teams,

Now the Jingle’s Stream has begun.

 

And wait there’s more.  For the top 5 alternatives as written by you and adjudicated on by your

Bottleship the flaming warship

Burning as we go

And when we ever battle

Our magazines will blow

All the other Warships

Hit him as he goes

They never let the bottlesheep

Go and do YOLO

Here's my talentless attempt xD

 

(Sung to Winter Wonderland :

)

 

Ship bells ring, are you listening
Up ahead, shell is raining
A horrible sight,
We're going to die,
We're sailing in a HE wonderland.

 

And to the left (to the left) is the Cleveland (is the Cleveland),
But to the right right right is an island.
He beached himself,
His HP ran out,
We're sailing in a HE wonderland.

Jesus Christ! and if i win... I won't be able to receive the prize cause my main account is suspended... *bursting into tears*

Anyway... I want to join the fun too... So:

 

O holy torps, the fear the scream created

It was the night when your ship struck by one

"All hands on deck" yellin' it's the captain...

"We are gon' sink" Some idiots screaming

"Oh no, we're not. Let's save this ship together"

"For Vadim's sake don't be such a coward"

 

"Startttt all the pumps! And put these fires out!

All night... we pump... All night... All night we pump.

Must save... The ship!!! And yes!!! We saved our ship!

I'm dreaming of a bright Shipmas 
Out where the ocean waters flow 
Where the mast-tops glisten, 
and sailors listen 
To hear ship bells in the snow

I'm dreaming of a bright Shipmas 
With every cannon shell that flies 
May your salvos sound merry and bright 
And may all your torpedoes run true

Not like anyone will understand it, but enjoy it anyway~

 

 

Original:

German lyrics:

 

1.
O Tannenbaum, o Tannenbaum,
wie grün sind deine Blätter!
Du grünst nicht nur zur Sommerszeit,
nein, auch im Winter, wenn es schneit.
O Tannenbaum, o Tannenbaum,
wie grün sind deine Blätter!

2.
O Tannenbaum, o Tannenbaum,
du kannst mir sehr gefallen.
Wie oft hat nicht zur Weihnachtszeit
ein Baum von dir mich hoch erfreut!
O Tannenbaum, o Tannenbaum,
du kannst mir sehr gefallen!

3.
O Tannenbaum, o Tannenbaum,
dein Kleid will mich was lehren:
Die Hoffnung und Beständigkeit
gibt Trost und Kraft zu jeder Zeit.
O Tannenbaum, o Tannenbaum,
dein Kleid will mich was lehren.

 

English translation:

 

O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree,
Your branches green delight us!
They are green when summer days are bright,
They are green when winter snow is white.
O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree,
Your branches green delight us!

 

O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree,
You give us so much pleasure!
How oft at Christmas tide the sight,
O green fir tree, gives us delight!
O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree,
You give us so much pleasure!

 

O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree
Forever true your colour.
Your boughs so green in summertime
Stay bravely green in wintertime.
O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree
Forever true your colour.

 

Ship version:

German lyrics:

O Schlachtschiff, O Schlachtschiff,

wie groß sind deine Geschütze!

Du schießt nicht nur zur Sommerszeit,

nein, auch im Winter, wenn es schneit.

O Schlachtschiff, O Schlachtschiff,

wie groß sind deine Geschütze!

 

 O Schlachtschiff, O Schlachtschiff,

Ich will dir stets gefallen.

Wie oft hat doch zur Weihnachtszeit

Ein Schiff wie du mich hoch erfreut!

O Schlachtschiff, O Schlachtschiff,

ich will dir stets gefallen.

 

O Schlachtschiff, O Schlachtschiff,

dein Rumpf will mich was lehren:

Die Hoffnung und Beständigkeit

Gibt Trost und Kraft zu jeder Schlacht.

O Schlachtschiff, O Schlachtschiff,

dein Rumpf will mich was lehren.

 

English translation:

 

O battleship, o battleship,

how large is your armament!

Not only do you shoot in summer times,

No, also in winter, while it snows.

O battleship, o battleship,

How large is your armament!

 

O battleship, o battleship,

I want to please you, always.

How often during christmas times

Did a ship like you bring me delight!

O battleship, o battleship,

I want to please you, always.

 

O battleship, o battleship,

Your hull seeks to enlighten me.

The hope and persistance

Bring solace and strength to every fight.

O battleship, o battleship,

Your hull seeks to enlighten me.

 

I hope everyone can enjoy a great christmas eve (24th for us in Germany) with their family and/or friends,

and for everyone that can't, remember:

Even with those close to us far away, there's still a bond to celebrate on christmas eve.

People railing kills, buying special gear,
Taking time to be shooting one and all
It's that type of match when good friends are sunk,
And you wish you could shoot more than just torpedoes from a tube

 

Why don't you give shells on Christmas Day
Oh even the man who has every fire
Would be so happy if you would bring
Him shells on Christmas Day,
No greater gift is there than shells

 

People you don't know smile and shoot you back,
Everywhere there's an air of Christmas shots
It's that once a match when the shots citadel,
And you'd like to find a way to show the things that floods can't say

 

Why don't you give shells on Christmas Day?
Oh the DD in the smoke and the cruiser behind
All need to know there's someone who cares
Give shells on Christmas Day
No greater gift is there than shells

 

What the match needs are shells
Yes, the enemy needs your shells

Why don't you give shells on Christmas Day
Every little player on RNG's knee
Has room for your shells underneath your range
Give shells on Christmas Day
No greater gift is there than shells

What the match needs are shells
Yes, the enemy needs your shells

Give shells, oh give shells on Christmas day
Every BB, DD, and CV, every CA too
Needs shells every bit as much as you

 

<<sung in Jackson 5's give love on christmas day>>

Away in a Tirpitz,
No crib for a bed
The little Lord RNGesus
Laid down His sweet head
The stars in the Northern Lights
Looked down where He lay
The little Lord RNGesus
Asleep on the hammock.

 

The sailors are bellowing
The Baby awakes
The little Lord RNGesus
No crying He makes
I love Thee, Lord RNGesus
Look down from the Northern Lights
And stay by my hammock
til morning is nigh.

 

Be near me, Lord RNGesus,
I ask Thee to stay
Close by me forever
And love me I pray.
Bless all the citadel shots
In Thy tender care
And take us for heaven
To live with Thee there.

 

Original

 

Away in a manger,
No crib for a bed
The little Lord Jesus
Laid down His sweet head
The stars in the sky
Looked down where He lay
The little Lord Jesus
Asleep on the hay.

The cattle are lowing
The Baby awakes
The little Lord Jesus
No crying He makes
I love Thee, Lord Jesus
Look down from the sky
And stay by my cradle
til morning is nigh.

Be near me, Lord Jesus,
I ask Thee to stay
Close by me forever
And love me I pray.
Bless all the dear children
In Thy tender care
And take us for heaven
To live with Thee there.

(sung to "The First Noel")

 

The First Cruiser

 

The first cruiser the captain did see

Was a burning old wreck that was sailing away

It was sailing away, sailing far from his sight

He was trying to give chase but losing the fight

 

No hope, No hope, No hope, No hope

Drunk was the captain on this cold night

 

The ship it rolled and pitched to the side

As the drunken ol captain tried not to collide

With a crash and a bang, the ship it did stop

Squashing a Destroyer running over its top

 

Looking up from the chart the first officer did say

We’re lost again and I don’t know the way

We’ll follow that ship until it is light

And then once again it’s back to the fight

 

Long was that night as they followed the ship

And bitter the wind with its icy grip

At dawn they saw to their surprise

The whole enemy fleet before their eyes

 

No hope, No Hope, No hope, No hope

Drunk was the captain on this cold night

(sung to "Jingle Bell Rock")

 

DD life, DD life, DD life rocks

DD life swings and DD life pings

Torping and blowing up bundles of ships

Now the dd life has begun!

 

DD life, DD life, DD life rocks

A DD fleet shines, in DD clutch time

Torping and evading, causing enemy despair

In the smoky air

 

What a bright time, its the right time

To torp that BB away

 

A DD lifetime is a swell time

To go slaying in a torpedo sleigh

Hurry up DD cap, pick up your speed

Capping round the clock

 

Fix that module in the struggling beat

That’s the DD life,

That’s the DD life,

That’s the DD life rock!

Jingle Bells World Of Warships Remix

 

Dashing through the sea,

In a one big battleship

All the battle that we fought

Shelling all the way.

Huge cannon on this ship

They make our spirits high

On the battleship that we like

 

Chorus
