Christmas Is A-Coming (May God Bless You)

length: 2:43

Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer

length: 2:17
composer: Johnny Marks
lyricist: Johnny Marks
You know dasher and dancer and prancer and vixen
Comet and cupid and donder and blitzen
But do you recall
The most famous reindeer of all

Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer
Had a very shiny nose
And if you ever saw it
You would even say it glows

All of the other reindeer
Used to laugh and call him names
They never let poor rudolph
Join in any reindeer games

Then one foggy christmas eve
Santa came to say
Rudolph with your nose so bright
Won't you guide my sleigh tonight?

Then how the reindeer loved him
As they shouted out with glee
Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer
You'll go down in history

Hang your nose down rudy
Hang your nose and cry

Sleigh Ride

length: 2:44
composer: Leroy Anderson
lyricist: Mitchell Parish
Just hear those sleigh bells jingling,
Ring ting tingling too
Come on, it's lovely weather
For a sleigh ride together with you,

Outside the snow is falling
And friends are calling "Yoo hoo,"
Come on, it's lovely weather
For a sleigh ride together with you.

Giddy yap, giddy yap, giddy yap,
Let's go, Let's look at the show,
We're riding in a wonderland of snow.
Giddy yap, giddy yap, giddy yap,
It's grand, just holding your hand,
We're gliding along with a song
Of a wintry fairy land.

Our cheeks are nice and rosy
And comfy cozy are we
We're snuggled up together
Like two birds of a feather would be

Let's take that road before us
And sing a chorus or two
Come on, it's lovely weather
For a sleigh ride together with you.

There's a birthday party
At the home of Farmer Gray
It'll be the perfect ending a perfect day
We'll be singing the songs
We love to sing without a single stop,
At the fireplace while we watch
The chestnuts pop. Pop! pop! pop!

There's a happy feeling
Nothing in the world can buy,
When they pass around the coffee
And the pumpkin pie

It'll nearly be like a picture print
By Currier and Ives
These wonderful things are the things
We remember all through our lives!

Just hear those sleigh bells jingling,
Ring ting tingling too
Come on, it's lovely weather
For a sleigh ride together with you,

Let's take that road before us
And sing a chorus or two
Come on, it's lovely weather
For a sleigh ride together with you.

That Christmas Feeling

length: 3:03
writer: George David Weiss, Bennie Benjamin
I love that Christmas feeling
It does my heart so much good
Strangers I meet all seem like friends
And the world's just a neighborhood

So here's to the joy of Christmas
Here's to the ones I hold dear
May you have that Merry Christmas feeling
All through a happy New Year

(I love that Christmas feeling
It does my heart so much good
Strangers I meet all seem like friends
And the world's just a neighborhood)

So here's to the joy of Christmas
Here's to the ones I hold dear
May you have that Merry Christmas feeling
All through a happy New Year

Looks Like a Cold Cold Winter

length: 3:06
writer: Jack Fulton, Caesar Petrillo, Al Goerning
Looks like a cold, cold winter
Plenty of ice & snow
But we'll keep the love light in our hearts aglow

Looks like a long, long winter
Baby what do we care
As long as we have this love of ours to share
It's gonna be cold outside
It's gonna be warm inside
So we'll cuddle up by a cozy fire side by side

Looks like a cold, cold winter
Summer is far away
Until then I'll love you more & more each day
Gonna keep you warm until winter goes away

I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day

length: 2:47
composer: John Baptiste Calkin
lyricist: Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Joy to the world
Let earth receive her King

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play
And wide and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to man

I thought as now this day had come
The belfries of all Christendom
Had rung so long the unbroken song
Of peace on earth, good will to man

And in despair I bowed my head
There is no peace on earth I said
For hate is strong and marks the song
Of peace on earth, good will to man

Then pealed the bells more loud and deep
God is not dead nor does he sleep
The wrong shall fail, the right prevail
With peace on earth, good will to man

Silent Night, Holy Night

length: 1:44
Silent night! Holy night!
All's asleep, one sole light,
Just the faithful and holy pair,
Lovely boy-child with curly hair,
Sleep in heavenly peace!

Silent night! Holy night!
God's Son laughs, o how bright.
Love from your holy lips shines clear,
As the dawn of salvation draws near,
Jesus, Lord, with your birth!

Silent night! Holy night!
Brought the world peace tonight,
From the heavens' golden height
Shows the grace of His holy might
Jesus, as man on this earth!

Silent night! holy night!
Where today all the might
Of His fatherly love us graced
And then Jesus, as brother embraced.
All the peoples on earth!

Silent night! Holy night!
Long we hoped that He might,
As our Lord, free us of wrath,
Since times of our fathers He hath
Promised to spare all mankind!

Silent night! Holy night!
Shepherds first see the sight.
Told by angelic Hallelujah,
Sounding everywhere, both near and far:
"Christ the Savior is here!"

The First Snowfall

length: 3:09
writer: Paul Francis Webster, Sonny Burke
Oh the first snowfall of the winter
Was a day that we all waited for
When it drifted to and fro
Why you should've seen the snow
It was near seven feet or more
By the old barn door

Oh the first snowfall of the winter
What a joy for a boy to behold
In each house you'll find a sleigh
That was waiting for this day
And of course, down the road a hill
For each Jack and Jill

Every winter breeze that scurries
Sends the snowflakes up in flurries
It's the good old sentimental season when
Folks put runners on their surreys
They forget about their worries
And a man becomes a boy once again

Oh, the first snowfall of the winter
Jingle bells wove their spells ever dear
Under wintry skies of gray
It was snowing hard all the day
And it showed no signs of stoppin'
Every kid with eyes a-poppin'
Knew he'd soon be belly-whoppin' on his ear

On the first snowfall of the winter
Oh, that first snowfall of the year
(The first snowfall of the year)
Oh, that first snowfall of the year

A Marshmallow World

length: 2:42
composer: Peter de Rose
lyricist: Carl Sigman
Ah, it's a marshmallow world in the winter,
When the snow comes to cover the ground.
It's the time for play, it's a whipped cream day,
I wait for it the whole year round!

Those are marshmallow clouds being friendly,
In the arms of the evergreen trees;
And the sun is red like a pumpkin head,
It's shining so your nose won't freeze!

The world is your snowball, see how it grows,
That's how it goes, whenever it snows.
The world is your snowball just for a song,
Get out and roll it along!

It's a yum-yummy world made for sweethearts,
Take a walk with your favorite girl.
It's a sugar date, so what if spring is late,
In winter it's a marshmallow world!

It's a marshmallow day in the winter,
When the snow comes to cover the ground.
It's the time for play, it's a whipped cream day,
And we wait for it the whole year round!

Just you remember that

Those are marshmallow clouds being friendly,
In the arms of the evergreen trees;
And the sun is red like a pumpkin head,
It's shining so your nose won't freeze!

You must remember that

The world is your snowball, see how it grows,
That's how it goes whenever it snows.
The world is your snowball just for a song,
Get out and roll it along!

It's a yum-yummy world made for sweethearts,
Take a walk with your favorite girl.
It's a sugary date, so what if spring is late,
In winter it's a marshmallow world
In winter it's a marshmallow world
In winter it's a marshmallow world

Snow

length: 2:42
Snow
It won't be long before we'll all be there with snow
Snow
I want to wash my hands, my face and hair with snow

Snow
I long to clear a path and lift a spade of snow
Snow
Oh, to see a great big man entirely made of snow

Where it's snowing
All winter through
That's where I want to be
Snowball throwing
That's what I'll do
How I'm longing to ski
Through the snow-oh-oh-oh-oh

Those glist'ning houses that seem to be built of snow
Snow
Oh, to see a mountain covered with a quilt of snow

What is Christmas with no snow
No white Christmas with no snow
Snow

I'll soon be there with snow
I'll wash my hair with snow
And with a spade of snow
I'll build a man that's made of snow
I'd love to stay up with you but I recommend a little shuteye
Go to sleep
And dream
Of snow

Sleigh Bell Serenade

length: 2:53
When your nose is all a tingle
And you're glidin' down the glade
Can't you hear the jolly jingle
Of the sleigh bell serenade

Every tree's a frozen statue
In a winter masquerade
And the moon is winking at you
'Tis a sleigh bell serenade

In the summer on a hay ride, night or day ride
You can pass the cider jug
But in the winter, every sleigh ride is a gay ride
You can sneak a hug `neath the old bear rug

All the world's a wide umbrella
For a fella and his mate
What a lovely night to tell her
'Tis a sleigh bell serenade

(When your nose is all a tingle)
(And you're glidin' down the glade)
Can't you hear the jolly tingle
Of the sleigh bell serenade

Every tree's a frozen statue
In a winter masquerade
And the moon is winking at you
'Tis a sleigh bell serenade

(In the dunder on a hay ride, night or day ride)
(You can pass the cider jug)
Ah, but in the winter, every sleigh ride is a gay ride
You can sneak a hug `neath the old bear rug

(All the world's a wide umbrella)
For a fella and his mate
What a lovely night to tell her
'Tis a sleigh bell serenade

(What a lovely night to tell her)

'Tis a sleigh bell serenade

Is Christmas Only a Tree

length: 2:15
Is Christmas only a tree?
Just only snow and candle glow
And dear old parlours hung with mistletoe

Is Christmas only a tree ?
Just frosted air, and angel hair
And Christmas carols ringing everywhere?

I seem to see, beyond the tree
To where the angels sing
Hosanna's ring, to heaven's king
And then at last my heart is answering...

Is Christmas only a tree ?
The answer is from long ago
Where-ever there's a tree... my heart will know
And when Christmas church bells ring
My heart will know

Little Jack Frost Get Lost

length: 1:50
Oh, little Jack Frost get lost, get lost,
Little Jack Frost get lost
You know you don't do a thing
But put a bite on the toes

There's lots of cold feet all the lovers complain
You turn up the heat down on lover's lane
The bench in the park is alone in the dark
So, little Jack Frost get lost, get lost,
Little Jack Frost get lost

So, little Jack Frost get lost, get lost
Little Jack Frost get lost, get lost
You don't do a thing but put the bite on my toes
Freeze up the ground and take the bloom from the rose
So, little Jack Frost go away, go away
And don't you come back another day, get gone, go way

There's lots of cold feet, all the lovers complain
You turn off the heat down in lover's lane
The fence in the park is all alone in the dark
So, little Jack Frost get lost, get lost,
Little Jack Frost get lost
Get lost, get lost, get lost, get lost
L. J. Frost get lost
(Lost)

Happy Holiday

length: 2:29
background vocals: The Music Maids
orchestra: John Scott Trotter and His Orchestra
lyricist: Irving Berlin
composer: Irving Berlin
Happy Holiday
Happy holiday, happy holiday
While the merry bells keep ringing
May your ev'ry wish come true

Happy holiday, happy holiday
May the calendar keep bringing
Happy holidays to you

Come To Holiday Inn
If you're burdened down with trouble
If your nerves are wearing thin
Park your load down the road
And come to Holiday Inn

If the traffic noise affects you
Like a squeaky violin
Kick your cares down the stairs
And come to Holiday Inn

If you can't find someone who
Would set your heart a-whirl
Take your car and motor to
The home of boy meets girl

If you're laid-up with a breakdown
Throw away your vitamin
Don't get worse, grab your nurse
And come to Holiday Inn
