Taylor Swift generously did not make the public wait long for her surprise Christmas song. The singer just released the track and a music video for “Christmas Tree Farm,” an infectious and personal pop holiday track. The music video accompanying it is a pretty intimate glimpse of her life at Christmastime over the years, featuring childhood home movie footage.

Swift grew up on a Christmas tree farm and considers Christmas to be her favorite holiday. As she told ELLE Taiwan in 2015, “Christmas is my most anticipated holiday. When Christmas is over, I’ll start the countdown to see how long it is before the next Christmas. In September, I’ll begin to celebrate Christmas by buying gifts for my friends, decorating the house, like if Christmas has come early. I am fascinated by this holiday, I grew up in a Christmas tree farm, so I like the spirit.”

Swift’s music video is deeply personal, given this. She explained on Instagram when she announced the single this morning that it is comprised of home video footage. “When in doubt, ask the itty bitty pretty kitty committee,” she captioned her announcement. “When they shun you with silence, ambivalence, and judgmental brush offs… just put the song out anyway. NEW XMAS SONG AND VIDEO (made from home videos 👨‍👩‍👧‍👦) OUT TONIGHT #ChristmasTreeFarm 🌲🎄🌲🎄🌲🎄🌲🎄🌲🎄🌲🎄🌲” Enjoy clips of baby Taylor Swift at the farm.

Here, the lyrics, via Genius, and music video to take in. Swift was definitely hinting this was coming with that Christmas tree easter egg in “ME!” way back in April, by the way.

Intro:
My winter nights are taken up by static
Stress and holiday shopping traffic
But I close my eyes and I’m somewhere else
Just like magic

Verse 1:


In my heart is a Christmas tree farm
Where the people would come
To dance under sparkles and lights
Bundled up in their mittens and coats
And the cider would flow
And I just wanna be there tonight

Pre-Chorus:


Sweet dreams of holly and ribbon
Mistakes are forgiven
And everything is icy and blue
And you would be there too

Chorus:


Under the mistletoe
Watching the fire glow
And telling me, “I love you”
Just being in your arms
Takes me back to that little farm
Where every wish comes true

Verse 2:

In my heart is a Christmas tree farm
There’s a light in the barn
We run inside out from the cold
In the town, kids are dreaming of sleighs
And they’re warm and they’re safe
They wake to see a blanket of snow

Pre-Chorus:


Sweet dreams of holly and ribbon
Mistakes are forgiven
And everything is icy and blue
And you would be there too

Chorus:


Under the mistletoe
Watching the fire glow
And telling me, “I love you”
Just being in your arms
Takes me back to that little farm
Where every wish comes true
Baby, yeah

Bridge:


And when I’m feeling alone
You remind me of home
Oh, baby, baby, Merry Christmas
And when the world isn’t fair
I pretend that we’re there
Baby, baby, Merry Christmas (To you)

Chorus:

Under the mistletoe (To you)
Watching the fire glow
And telling me, “I love you”

Outro:


Oh, baby, baby, Merry Christmas
Oh, baby, baby, Merry Christmas (Darling)
Oh, baby, baby, Merry Christmas
I love you
Oh, baby, baby, Merry Christmas
Oh, baby, baby, Merry Christmas (I just want you to know)
Oh, baby, baby, Merry Christmas
Make every wish come true
I love you
