"The Very First Christmas" is a Christmas song sung by SpongeBob, Patrick, and other Bikini Bottomites in the episode "Christmas Who?"

Lyrics

SpongeBob and Patrick: It's shaping up to be a wonderful holiday,
Not your normal, average every day.
Squidward: Sounds like someone felled my old coral tree.
SpongeBob, Patrick, why'd you do this to me?
SpongeBob and Patrick: The world feels like it's in loverly.
Squidward: Go away before I harm you bodily!
SpongeBob and Patrick: This Christmas feels like the very first Christmas to me.
There'll be shopping, decorating, and plenty of snow
Chorus: (Plenty of snow)
SpongeBob: Hey Patrick, who's that under the mistletoe?
Chorus: (The mistletoe)
Squidward: What? Who, me? Would you look at the time, I should go!
Plankton: People seem a little more brotherly.
Chorus: (Brotherly)
Mr. Krabs: Here's a special something to you from me.
Chorus: (To you from me)
SpongeBob and Patrick: Even all the trash on Christmas, it smells so sweetly.
Gary: Meow.
SpongeBob and Patrick: This Christmas feels like the very first Christmas to me.
SpongeBob: Ladadadadadadadada! Dadadadadadada! Ladadadadadadadada! Dadadadada!
Squidward: What do you want? Can't you see that I'm busy?
SpongeBob and Patrick: Step outside, we've got something for you to see.
Squidward: SpongeBob, take this stuff down immediately!
SpongeBob and Patrick: Chestnuts roasting and burns in the third degree.
All (except Squidward): Tonight things are as good as they seem to be!
Patrick: A star on top will complete all the scenery!
All (except Squidward): This Christmas feels like the very first Christmas to me!
Mr. Krabs: [falsetto] Very first Christmas to me!
All (except Squidward): This Christmas feels like the very first Christmas to me!
Mr. Krabs: [falsetto] Very first Christmas to me!

Trivia

  • Mr. Krabs' falsetto voice was done by Dee Bradley Baker, as Clancy Brown could not hit that high note.
  • Despite Squidward being very against of the idea of Christmas, he still sings five lines of the song.
    • His voice is also heard singing the final line of the song, yet Squidward himself is not seen singing.
  • Even though Patrick volunteers to be the star on top of their Christmas tree, after the song he is no longer on top of the tree for the rest of the episode.
  • This is one of the only songs to be sung by almost the entire cast alongside Secret to the Formula.
  • In the Tagalog dub, the original audio is replaced with the Tagalog voice actors redubbing the song into English.[1]
  • In the Italian dub, this song is left untranslated.
