This song begins after Jack falls into Christmas Town, Towards the end of the movie the residents of Halloween Town sing a variation of this after Santa Claus flies over the town, making it snow.

Lyrics[edit | edit source]

What's this? What's this?

There's color everywhere,

What's this?

There's white things in the air

What's this?

I can't believe my eyes I must be dreaming

Wake up Jack, this isn't fair

What's this?

What's this? What's this?

There's something very wrong,

What's this?

There's people singing songs,

What's this?

The streets are lined with little creatures laughing

Everybody seems so happy

Have I possibly gone daffy?

What is this? What's this?

There's children throwing snowballs instead of throwing heads,

They're busy building toys and absolutely no one's dead,

There's frost on every window, oh, I can't believe my eyes

And in my bones I feel the warmth that's coming from inside

Oh look, What's this?

They're hanging mistletoe, they kiss?

Why that looks so unique, inspired!

They're gathering around to hear a story

Roasting chestnuts on a fire, What's this?

What's this? In here they've got a little tree, how queer

And who would ever think, and why?

They're covering it with tiny little things

They've got electric lights on strings

And there's a smile on everyone

So, now, correct me if I'm wrong

This looks like fun, this looks like fun

Oh, could it be I got my wish?

What's this?

Oh my, what now? The children are asleep

But look, there's nothing underneath, no ghouls,

No witches here to scream and scare them or ensnare them

Only little cozy things secure inside their dreamland *sigh*

What's this?

The monsters are all missing

And the nightmares can't be found

And in their place there seems to be good feeling all around!

Instead of screams, I swear I can hear music in the air

The smell of cakes and pies are absolutely everywhere

The sights, the sounds, they're everywhere and all around

I've never felt so good before, this empty place inside of me is filling up

I simply cannot get enough

I want it, oh, I want it, oh, I want it for my own

I've got to know I've got to know

What is this place that I have found?

What is this?!

Christmas Town, hmm...
