I'm Giving Santa a Pikachu for Christmas is a song from the Pokémon Christmas Bash CD, released in 2001. It is sung by Veronica Taylor as Ash Ketchum and Stan Hart as Professor Oak.

Lyrics

Oak:
Every Christmas ol' Santa brings presents for me.
He leaves plenty of packages under the tree,
But this year I have a surprise for Saint Nick,
And it's something that's going to give him a kick!


Ash: What is it, Professor?

Oak: I'm giving Santa a Pikachu this Christmas.
Ash: Wow! Just like the one you gave to me?
Oak: That's right!
I'll hide it in my stocking,
And he'll find it rather shocking,
Cause giving gifts to Santa is quite a novelty!
I'm giving Santa a Pikachu this Christmas.


Ash:
I bet he'll scratch his beard and say:
"Now Christmas eves will be a breeze
As long as I have one of these
On foggy flights
Through winter nights
To light my way!"


Oak: Its ThunderShock will twirl a million candy canes,
Ash: And power up a slew of new
Both: electric trains!

Oak:
I'm giving Santa a Pikachu this Christmas
Cause Santa's got a lot of work to do.
As the clock strikes every hour,

Ash:
He'll be using Pika-power!
To bring Christmas toys
To girls and boys

Oak:
And grown ups too.

With Pikachu his sleigh will fly so fast,
About a thousand times as fast as Christmas past

I'm giving Santa a Pikachu this Christmas,

Ash:
It'll be the best friend Santa ever had.
He'll have fun with Pikachu
And Pikachu's gonna have fun too.

Oak:
Playing up in Santa's workshop,
Say... that's not bad!


Ash: It's chilly at the North Pole.
Oak: So I'm told.
But with so much warmth in both their hearts
They'll never feel the cold.

I'm giving Santa a Pikachu this Christmas -
It's just the perfect thing to do!

Ash:
And as his sleigh pulls out of sight
We'll hear him calling through the night,

Both:
With a Ho-Ho-Ho
Santa
and a "Merry Christmas!"
All
Pika-chuuuuu!
