Cole, Nat King - O Tannenbaum Lyrics




O Tannenbaum, o Tannenbaum,
wie treu sind deine Bltter!
Du grnst nicht nur
zur Sommerzeit,
Nein auch im Winter, wenn es schneit.
O Tannenbaum, o Tannenbaum,
wie treu sind deine Bltter!

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!

O Tannenbaum, o Tannenbaum!
Dein Kleid will mich
was lehren:
Die Hoffnung und Bestndigkeit
Gibt Trost und Kraft
zu jeder Zeit.
O Tannenbaum, o Tannenbaum!
Das soll dein Kleid
mich lehren.

Cole, Nat King O Tannenbaum Comments
  1. 蛟龍Stormwyrm

    This is a lovely song, and it was a regular Christmas song throughout my childhood. But it always used to make me laugh because it sounded to my ears like "O Time bomb"... 😆 ⏰💣

  2. Frank Martinez

    Beautiful.

  3. Dough Baby

    He does a pretty good job speaking German. Pronounce is a off a bit

  4. QANGOR

    WoW! Talented Nat King Cole transcends not only foreign languages but time, years, decades, centuries...and I bet he will be singing in the Millennium as well!

  5. Sascha Pleuger

    I never knew he sang in my language...oh this is my personal present this year. Nat KING Cole forever!

    user

    hey man! Cool dass du Nat King Cole hörst. geiler Geschmack!

  6. Greasyphil420

    Nat king cole IS Christmas.

  7. Annabel Uwaemenyi

    Wow! This German version by Nat King Cole is haunting. I'm obsessed!

  8. Peter Roberts

    German Christmas carols are so beautiful who would ever think they were capable of such atrocities.

    The Divine Augustus

    Peter Roberts Every nation on this earth is capable of anything, good or bad, in the right circumstances. Why you would bring that up on a Christmas song is mind blowing to me.

  9. Käte Nicole

    He sounds wonderful and sang accurate. Nice job!!! 👍🏽

  10. Ken Sturm

    Why isn't this song on that record ^^^???

  11. Bledsoe Gaming

    My dad puts this on every Christmas.

  12. Tynox 01

    I like the song, but holy fucking shit this guy looks creepy

  13. Aemilia Coffin PhoneTube

  14. luna aksoy

  15. Kyle Shade

  16. Sankalp Patil

    Oh Krusty Crab oh Krusty Crab

  17. Ronald Cammarata

    Nat King Cole war toll, as they say in the deutsch.

  18. crystalclare1000

    Listening to this while I finally begin to take down my tree..... In mid-February.

  19. percy 12/37

    one of the Greatest Singers that ever lived!

  20. James Miller

    I don't know why but the two local radio stations that normally play Christmas music every year have stopped playing songs like this one, Pretty Ribbons by Roy Orbison, Oh Christmas Tree, and other classic Christmas songs. Why. They instead play Last Christmas and All I Want for Christmas, which are good songs but they play them once and hour and you get tired of them quick. If Christmas isn't the time to embrace the past and all that great music when is?

  21. bro-man jensen

    The dudes voice is so smooth he can make german sound beautiful.

  22. S K

    patrick pearse

    There is no Boxing Day in Germany,that is for the English and Anglo sycophants.

  38. facundo cobos

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

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

    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.

  42. Jana Hitt

    This is my favorite Christmas song ever as a German this is awesome

    WomanforTRUMP

    Not correct as a realGerman told us. Ja ... es ist besonders hubsch im Januar; aber grunnt nicht nur im Winter wenn es schneit, aber auch im Sommzerzeit, und Fruhling und Herbst. Ist herrlich ewig. Nat hat die Stimme einem Uberengel.

  43. Junowonderfrog

    What a wonderful interpretation of this song! As german I can say I love his version most of all I ever heard! ✨⭐️✨💖✨ What a voice! 😍🎄

  44. Cliff Roberson

    What a great singer. I still remember as a small child the day he passed. Rest in peace!

  52. Mark Masters

    Beautiful

  53. Timothy Hughes

    Nat's music is a gift to all languages and all the world.

    László Nádas

    but not this one, its terrible :D

    Ronald Cammarata

    @László Nádas Nat King Cole is a legend. And this is perfect. Or perfekt, if you prefer.

    Marc Sweeney

    The pronunciation is terrible to those of us who can speak German.

    Lilly Yarney

    @Marc Sweeney true however his voice is so smooth that me personally I'm willing to overlook it.

  54. Sunil Wimalasuriya

    Awesome..

  55. Noelle T

    My grandfathers favorite song, since he passed we listen to it every year in German as he liked it

  56. Cocoa Femme

    This song reminds me of my kid brother who I love and miss so very much. He was deported back to Jamaica twelve years ago. He loved to sing this song.

    WomanforTRUMP

    @Nick Houser Correct.

    Cocoa Femme

    @Nick Houser: EXCUSE ME, SIR? You do know what happens when you ASSUME; you are making an ASS of U!! My brother DID come to this country....LEGALLY!! We came because my mother landed a job as a Nurse in a hospital!! For your DAMN information!! He got himself in trouble, and THAT'S why he's gone!! Some of you hateful people in this world, need a serious lobotomy!!!

    ahomowithextrachromos

    @WomanforTRUMP two words, fuck. you.

    CIA

    Alea iacta est.

    Aemilia Coffin PhoneTube

    I'm so sorry that happened

  57. John O'Connor

    Brilliant, unique voice

  58. Kimberly Barnes

    A voice like no other, no one else comes close.

    WomanforTRUMP

    Perry Como...Andy Wiliams.....more.

    Martin

    @WomanforTRUMP you could include Bing , Sinatra, Dean Martin etc etc but I still think Nat had the edge. They were all wonderful but "the man with the velvet voice" Nat King Cole is my number one too

    Ronald Cammarata

    @WomanforTRUMP Perry Como and Andy Williams are nice. Not Nat King Cole, but nice nonetheless

  59. Music Source

    To whoever gave this a thumbs down... I WILL find u....

    HarlemPixie33

    @Ken Sturm Please never talk to me again. This is some of the dumbest shit the internet has to offer. 😒

    Musikgeschichte

    No, that is the "normal german". But there are many dialects in germany...hassian, northern, bavarian... and they don't understand each other.

    JudgeJulieLit

    +akilla214u2c Ja ... es ist besonders hubsch im Januar; aber grunnt nicht nur im Winter wenn es schneit, aber auch im Sommzerzeit, und Fruhling und Herbst. Ist herrlich ewig. Nat hat die Stimme einem Uberengel.
