About Christmas in Herald Square
Composer Tony Tamburello was a long-term friend and vocal coach to Tony Bennett.


Bundle up from head to toe
And smile as it begins to snow
And all around I feel the cheer
When that old familiar sound I hear

Sidewalk Santa
Rings his bell
Pushcart Vendors
Send the smell
Of roasting chestnuts, floating through the air

It’s Christmas
In Herald Square

Selling pine trees
In the snow
Santa’s going
As people come from here and everywhere

It’s Christmas
In Herald Square

Carolers singing
Under Macy’s Tree of Light
Capture the spirit
As the season hits the heights!

Santa’s workshop
Way up North
Sends toys down to
Thirty Four
So all the girls and boys can get their share
Of that yearly yuletide celebration!

A miracle happens there
When it’s Christmas
in Herald Square
