Ying Yang Twins – “This Christmas” (with Lyrics)

As the second song on the Ying Yang Twins’ Christmas album, “This Christmas” is arguably the most true to the original Christmas classic.

It starts off as a standard R&B remake until Kaine chimes in at around the 1:30 mark. I’m not a fan of his verse because his vocals just don’t fit the dynamic of the song. D-Roc follows him up with a verse of his own, and I think if their verses were switched (so that D-Roc went first), the song would have much smoother transitions. The song finishes off the same way it started, with buttery smooth R&B vocals.

Ying Yang Twins – “This Christmas” Lyrics

Hang all the mistletoe
I’m gonna get to know you better this Christmas
And as we trim the tree
How much fun it’s gonna be together this Christmas

The fireside is blazing bright
We’re caroling through the night
And this Christmas will be
A very special Christmas for me

Shake a hand, shake a hand (x3)

[Verse 1 – Kaine] Coming through the hood, gripping on my wood
Jack Frost nipping on my nose, the liquor store is closed
Kids all in the yard, playing with all they toys
Ain’t nobody making no noise, so the po-po ain’t at large

[Verse 2 – D-Roc] Early in the morning what do I see
A whole lotta gifts under the Christmas tree
Santa Clause came and left a gift for me
And the rest of my family
Toys all around the floor making the kids all happy
Momma in the kitchen cooking breakfast up
I hope your Christmas is just like mine
Alright, okay, and fine

[Chorus] This Christmas the fireside is blazing bright
We’re caroling through the night
And this Christmas will be
A very special Christmas for me

Shake a hand, shake a hand (x3)

And this Christmas will be
A very special Christmas for me, yeah

Shake a hand, shake a hand (x3)
