Hey, chingedy ching, hee haw, hee haw
It’s Dominick, the donkey
Chingedy ching, hee haw, hee haw
The Italian Christmas donkey
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, ladioda

Santa’s got a little friend, his name is Dominick
The cutest little donkey, you never see him kick
When Santa visits his Paesans with Dominick he’ll be
Because the reindeer cannot climb the hills of Italy.

Hey, chingedy ching, hee haw, hee haw
It’s Dominick, the donkey
Chingedy ching, hee haw, hee haw
The Italian Christmas donkey
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, ladioda

Jingle bells around his feet and presents on the sled
Hey, look at the mayor’s derby on top of Dominick’s head
A pair of shoes for Louie and a dress for Josephine
The label on the inside says they’re made in Brooklyn.

Hey, Chingedy ching, hee haw, hee haw
It’s Dominick, the donkey
Chingedy ching, hee haw, hee haw
The Italian Christmas donkey
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, ladioda

Children sing and clap their hands and Dominick starts to dance
They talk Italian to him and he even understands
Cummares and cumpares do the dance a tarentell
When Santa Nicola comes to town and brings il ciucciariello.

Hey, chingedy ching, hee haw, hee haw
It’s Dominick, the donkey
Chingedy ching, hee haw, hee haw
The Italian Christmas donkey
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, ladioda

Hey Dominick, Buon Natale
Hee haw, hee haw, hee haw, hee haw, hee haw
