The Christmas Song

length: 3:34

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
Will find it hard to sleep tonight

[Refrain]
They know that Santa’s on his way
He's loaded lots of toys and goodies on his sleigh
And every mother's child is gonna spy
To see if reindeer really know how to fly

And so, I'm offering this simple phrase
To kids from 1 to 92
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 toys and goodies on his sleigh
And every mother's child is gonna spy
To see if reindeer really know how to fly

And so, I'm offering this simple phrase
To kids from 1 to 92
Although it's been said many times, many ways
Merry Christmas
Merry Christmas
Merry Christmas to you

Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)

length: 2:42
(The snow) the snow's coming down
(Christmas) I'm watching it fall
(Christmas) watching the people around
(Christmas) baby, please come home

(Christmas) the church bells in town
(Christmas) they're ringing a song
(Christmas) what a happy sound
(Christmas) baby please come home

They're singing Deck the Halls
But it's not like Christmas at all
'Cause I remember when you were here
And all the fun we had last year

(Christmas) pretty lights on the tree
(Christmas) I'm watching them shine
(Christmas) you should be here with me
(Christmas) baby, please come home

They're singing Deck the Halls
But it's not like Christmas at all
I remember when you were here
And all the fun we had last year

(Christmas) If there was a way
(Christmas) I'd hold back these tears
(Christmas) But it's Christmas Day
(Please), please (please), please (please), please (please), please (please)
Oh comin' home
Oh babe
You know I need you
Oh comin' home

You know I need you
I gotta have you
I need you, I need you, I need you, I need you, I need you, I need you, I need you
Oh babe
Oh babe please come home

Under the Weather

length: 3:06
Right there in the living room is our little lit-up tree
We haven't even started wrapping hardly anything
There's only one thing I need, yeah and you can bet
Me being wrapped up with you is the best present I could get

It's cold outside, you and I gotta go no where
I could start a fire lay beside you all night right here
The snow's comin' down and it won't be the only thing falling
So let's stay here together under the weather
Under the weather, under the weather

Carols comin' through the radio
People saying stay off the roads
Kissin' you under the mistletoe
That's a reason to stay at home

Baby it's cold outside, you and I gotta go no where
I could start a fire lay beside you all night right here
The snow's comin' down and it won't be the only thing falling
So let's stay here together under the weather

I waited for this all year long
Something about turning on
Christmas lights for the first time
Watchin' them shine in your eyes

Baby it's cold outside, you and I gotta go no where
I could start a fire lay beside you all night right here
The snow's comin' down and it won't be the only thing falling
So let's stay here together under the weather
Yeah under the weather, under the weather

There's a New Kid in Town

length: 4:09
writer: Don Cook, Claude “Curly” Putman, Jr., Keith Whitley
We're looking for The King
The new Messiah
We're following the star
Shining brighter
Old man won't you help us if you can
He shook his head
But he pointed his hand

There's a new kid in town
And he's lying in a manger down the road
There's a new kid in town
But he's just another baby I suppose
Heaven knows
There's a new kid in town
Here in Bethlehem

I see you've traveled far
Bearing treasures
You say these gifts are for
The new Kings pleasures
Well I've heard
That a King might come
But up 'til now there hasn't been one

There's a new kid in town
And he's lying in a manger down the road
There's a new kid in town
But he's just another baby I suppose
Heaven knows
There's a new kid in town
Here in Bethlehem

There's a new kid in town
And he's lying in a manger down the road
There's a new kid in town
But he's just another baby I suppose
Heaven knows
There's a new kid in town
Here in Bethlehem

Holly Jolly Christmas

length: 2:18
Have a holly jolly Christmas
It's the best time of the year
Well I don't know if there'll be snow
But have a cup of cheer

Have a holly jolly Christmas
And when you walk down the street
Say hello to friends you know
And everyone you meet

Ho ho the mistletoe
Is hung where you can see
Somebody waits for you
Kiss her once for me

Have a holly jolly Christmas
And in case you didn't hear
Oh by golly have a holly jolly Christmas
This year

Have a holly jolly Christmas
And when you walk down the street
Say hello to friends you know
And everyone you meet

Ho ho the mistletoe
Is hung where you can see
Somebody waits for you
Kiss her once for me

Have a holly jolly Christmas
And in case you didn't hear
Oh by golly have a holly jolly Christmas
This year
Oh by golly have a holly jolly Christmas
This year

Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas

length: 3:25
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
Hang a shining star upon the highest bough
And have yourself a merry little Christmas now

Through the years we all will be together
If the fates allow
Hang a shining star upon the highest bough
And have yourself a merry little Christmas now

The First Noel

length: 3:35
The First Noël, the angels did say
Was to certain poor shepherds in fields as they lay
In fields where they lay keeping their sheep
On a cold winter's night that was so deep

Noël, Noël, Noël, Noël
Born is the King of Israel

They looked up and saw a star
Shining in the East beyond them far
And to the earth it gave great light
And so it continued both day and night

Noël, Noël, Noël, Noël
Born is the King of Israel

Then entered in those Wise men three
Full reverently upon their knee
And offered there in His presence
Their gold and myrrh and frankincense

Noël, Noël, Noël, Noël
Born is the King
Born is the King
Born is the King of Israel

I'll Be Home for Christmas

length: 3:37
I'm dreamin' tonight of a place I love
Even more than I usually do
And although I know it's a long road back
I promise you

I'll be home for Christmas
You can count on me
Please have snow and mistletoe
And presents under the tree

Christmas Eve will find me
Where the love light beams

I'll be home for Christmas
If only in my dreams

Christmas Eve will find me
Where the love light beams
I'll be home for Christmas
If only in my dreams
If only in my dreams

Silent Night

length: 4:03
Silent night
Holy night
All is calm
All is bright
Round yon virgin
Mother and child
Holy infant
So tender and mild
Sleep in heavenly peace
Sleep in heavenly peace

It Must Be Christmas

length: 3:31
Weather's getting cold again
The leaves are falling off the trees
You can almost sense it's time

For jingle bells and wrapping things
Every drive way's full of cars
Kids out of school in the yards

When there's lights on every street
Snowflakes on everything
Well it's just what you've been waiting for all year
When you believe in Santa Claus
When you give gifts just because
And you drive all night only to be near
The ones you love
Well it must be Christmas

All you see is red and green
And people wearing winter coats
Every church has a Nativity
For everyone to see

That's how you know

When there's lights on every street
Snowflakes on everything
Well it's just what you've been waiting for all year
When you believe in Santa Claus
When you give gifts just because
And you drive all night only to be near
The ones you love
Well it must be Christmas

When you believe in Santa Claus
When you give gifts just because
And you drive all night only to be near
The ones you love
Well it must be Christmas

It must be Christmas
