arranger: Marty Paich
lyricist: James Lord Pierpont
composer: James Lord Pierpont

Jingle bells, jingle bells,
Jingle all the way.
Oh! what fun it is to ride
In a one-horse open sleigh.
Jingle bells, jingle bells,
Jingle all the way
Oh! what fun it is to ride
In a one-horse open sleigh.

Dashing through the snow
In a one-horse open sleigh
O'er the fields we go
Laughing all the way
Bells on bobtail ring
Making spirits bright
What fun it is to ride and sing
A sleighing song tonight!

Jingle bells, jingle bells,
Jingle all the way.
Oh! what fun it is to ride
In a one-horse open sleigh.
Jingle bells, jingle bells,
Jingle all the way
Oh! what fun it is to ride
In a one-horse open sleigh.

A day or two ago
I thought I'd take a ride
And soon Miss Fanny Bright
Was seated by my side
The horse was lean and lank
Misfortune seemed his lot,
We ran into a drifted bank
And there we got upsot.
Upsot?

Jingle bells, jingle bells,
Jingle all the way.
Oh! what fun it is to ride
In a one-horse open sleigh.
Jingle bells, jingle bells,
Jingle all the way
Oh! what fun it is to ride
In a one-horse open sleigh

Dashing through, the fields of white
On this happy Christmas night
Off we go through the snow
Bells are ringing, but we're singing
Jingle bells, jingle bells, Jing jangle
Jingle bells, Jingle bells Jing jangle
Jingle bells, Jingle bells Jing jangle
Jingle bells, Jingle bells Jing jangle
J-J-J-J-J-J-Jingle bells, J-J-J-J-J-Jangle bells
J-J-J-J all the way
In a one-horse open sleigh

Have yourself a merry little Christmas
Let your heart be light
From now on, our troubles will be out of sight
Have yourself a merry little Christmas
Make the Yuletide gay
From now on, our troubles will be miles away
Here we are as in olden days
Happy golden days of yore
Faithful friends who are dear to us
Gather near to us once more
Through the years we all will be together
If the fates allow
So hang a shining star upon the highest bough
And have yourself a merry little Christmas now

Have yourself a merry little Christmas
Let your heart be light
From now on, our troubles will be out of sight
Have yourself a merry little Christmas
Make the Yuletide gay

From now on, our troubles will be miles away
Here we are as in olden days
Happy golden days of yore
Faithful friends who are dear to us
Gather near to us once more
Through the years we all will be together
If the fates allow

And have yourself a merry little Christmas now

The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire)

length: 4:01
producer: Jack Gold
conductor: Marty Paich
arranger: Marty Paich
composer: Mel Tormé
lyricist: Robert Wells
(Although it's been said many times, many ways, Merry Christmas to you...)
Chestnuts roasting on an open fire
Jack frost nipping at your nose
Yuletide carols being sung by a choir
And folks dressed up like Eskimos
Everybody knows a turkey and some mistletoe
Help to make the season bright
Tiny tots with their eyes all aglow
We'll find it hard to sleep tonight
They know that Santa's on his way
He's loaded lots of toy and goodies on his sleigh
And every mother's child is gonna spy
To see if reindeers really know how to fly
And so I'm offering this simple phrase
To kids from one to ninety two
Although it's been said
Many times, many ways
Merry Christmas to you
They know that Santa's on his way
He's loaded lots of toy and goodies on his sleigh
And every mother's child is gonna spy
To see if reindeers really know how to fly
So I'm offering this simple phrase
To kids from one to ninety two
Although it's been said
Many times, many ways
Merry Christmas
Merry Christmas
Merry Christmas to you...

White Christmas

length: 3:09
producer: Jack Gold
conductor: Marty Paich
arranger: Marty Paich
lyricist: Irving Berlin
composer: Irving Berlin
I'm dreaming of a white Christmas
Just like the ones I used to know
Where the treetops glisten,
And children listen

To hear sleigh bells in the snow
I'm dreaming of a white Christmas
With every Christmas card I write
May your days be merry and bright
And may all your Christmases be white
I'm dreaming of a white Christmas
With every Christmas card I write
May your days be merry and bright
And may all your Christmases be white

My Favorite Things

length: 3:09
producer: Jack Gold
conductor: Marty Paich
arranger: Marty Paich
Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens
Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens
Brown paper packages tied up with strings
These are a few of my favorite things
Cream colored ponies and crisp apple strudels
Doorbells and sleigh bells and schnitzel with noodles
Wild geese that fly with the moon on their wings
These are a few of my favorite things
Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes
Snow flakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes
Silver white winters that melt into springs
These are a few of my favorite things
When the dog bites, when the bee stings, when I'm feeling sad
I simply remember my favorite things
Like sliver white winters that melt into springs
And then i don't feel so bad!

The Best Gift

length: 3:15
producer: Ettore Stratta and Jack Gold
conductor: Marty Paich
arranger: Marty Paich
The best gift
That I ever got
Didn’t really weigh a lot
It didn’t have a ribbon ’round
And it sometimes made the terrible sound
The best of all it seems to me
It wasn’t neath the christmas tree
And yet, I guess I’d have to say
That it made all the other presents twice as gay
The best gift that I’ve ever known
I’d always wanted most to own
Yet in my dreams of sugar and spice
I never thought it could be so nice
The best gift that I ever get
Was sometimes dry and sometimes wet
Was usually pink but oftentimes red
As it lay so innocently in it’s bed
The best gift of the year to me
The one I hold most dear to me
A gift that simply drove me wild
Was a tiny new born child...

O Little Town of Bethlehem

length: 2:59
producer: Jack Gold
conductor: Marty Paich
arranger: Marty Paich
composer: Lewis Henry Redner
lyricist: Phillips Brooks
O little town of Bethlehem,
How still we see thee lie;
Above thy deep and dreamless sleep
The silent stars go by;
Yet in thy dark streets shineth
The everlasting light.
The hopes and fears of all the years
Are met in thee tonight.
The angels' voices singing
Proclaim the early morning!
And children pure and happy
A-wait the break of dawn
While charity stands watching
And faithfuls wipe the door
The dark night wakes the glory bricks
And Christmas comes once more

I Wonder as I Wander

length: 3:19
producer: Ettore Stratta
conductor: Ray Ellis
arranger: Ray Ellis
I wonder as I wander, out under the sky
How Jesus the savior, did come for die
For poor orn'ry people like you and like I
I wonder as I wander, out under the sky

When Mary birthed Jesus, t'was in a cow'stall
With wise men and farmers and shepherds and all
And high from gods heaven a starlight did fall
And the promise of ages, it then did recall

If Jesus had wanted for any wee thing
A star in the sky or a bird on the wing
Or all of gods angels in heaven to sing
He surely could've had it, 'cause he was the king

I wonder as I wander, out under the sky
I wonder as I wander

I wonder as I wander, out under the sky
How Jesus the savior, did come for die
For poor orn'ry people like you and like I
I wonder as I wander, out under the sky

I wonder as I wander out under the, sky

The Lord's Prayer

length: 2:44
producer: Ettore Stratta
conductor: Ray Ellis
arranger: Ray Ellis
Our father
Which art in heaven
Hallowed be thy name
Thy kingdom come
Thy will be done
In earth as it is
In heaven...
(give us this day our daily bread)
And forgive our debts
As we forgive our debtors
And lead us not into temptation
But deliver us from evil
For thine is the kingdom
And the power
And the glory
Forever...
Amen...
