Merry Christmas

length: 2:46
composer: Fred Spielman
lyricist: Janice Torre

Merry Christmas,
Have a very, very merry Christmas.
Dream about your hearts desire,
Christmas Eve when you retire,
Santa Claus will stop and I know he'll drop
Exactly what you wanted from your chimney top.
So be jolly,
Have a holiday as gay as holly.
May the ones you love be near you
With the laugh of friends to cheer you.
When the church bells ring,
Like the angels sing,
And you hear the joyful hymn they chime,
Hang a wish from me on your Christmas tree
[Repeat]
For a very merry Christmas time.

Little Drops of Rain

length: 3:29
composer: Harold Arlen
lyricist: Yip Harburg
Little drops of rain
Little grains of sand
Make the mighty ocean
And the pleasant land

Little notes that sing
Little words that rhyme
Make the mighty memories
And the dreams of time

Never let a minute
Lie there on the shelf
For there may be in it
All loves life itself

Little smiles of hope
Little drops of tears
Make this thing called love
Go dancing down the years

Little drops of rain
Little rays of sun
Make the hopeful rainbow
Glow for everyone

Lost in the Stars

length: 3:53
composer: Kurt Weill
lyricist: Maxwell Anderson
Little drops of rain, little grains of sand
Makes the mighty ocean and the pleasant land
Little notes that sing, little words that rhyme
Make the mighty memories and the dreams of time

Never let a minute lie there on the shelf
For there maybe in it all love's life itself
Little smiles of hope, little drops of tears
Make this thing [Incomprehensible], go dancing down the years

Little drops of rain, little rays of sun
Make the hope for rainbow, glow for everyone

Swing Low Sweet Chariot / He's Got the Whole World in His Hands

composer: Hugh Martin
lyricist: Ralph Blane
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

Happy golden days of yore
Faithful friends who are dear to us
Gather near to us once more

You'll Never Walk Alone

length: 4:05
lyricist: Oscar Hammerstein II
composer: Richard Rodgers
When you walk through a storm
"Keep your chin up high" or "Hold your head up high"
And don't be afraid of the dark.
At the end of a storm
Is a golden sky
And the sweet, silver song of a lark.
Walk on, through the wind,
Walk on, through the rain,
Though your dreams be tossed and blown.
Walk on, walk on with hope in your heart,
And you'll never walk alone,
You'll never walk alone.

I've Got My Love to Keep Me Warm

length: 1:37
composer: Irving Berlin
lyricist: Irving Berlin
(Do do-do do do do-do)
(Do do-do do do do-do)
The snow is snowing and the wind is blowing
But I can weather the storm!
What do I care how much it may storm?
For I've got my love to keep me warm

I can't remember a worse December
Just watch those icicles form!
Oh, what do I care if icicles form?
Oh, I've got my love to keep me warm

Off with my overcoat, off with my glove
I need no overcoat, I'm burning with love!

My heart's on fire, the flame grows higher
So I will weather the storm!
What do I care how much it may storm?
Oh, I've got my love to keep me warm

The snow is snowing, the wind is blowing
But I can weather the storm!
What do I care how much it may storm?
Oh, I've got my love to keep me warm

I can't remember a worse December
Just watch those icicles form!
What do I care if icicles form?
Oh-ho-ho, I've got my love to keep me warm

Off with my overcoat, off with my glove
I need no overcoat, I'm burning with love!

My heart's on fire, the flame grows higher
So I will weather the storm!
What do I care how much it may storm?
Oh, I've got my love to keep me warm

Smile

length: 3:27
lyricist: Geoffrey Parsons, John Turner
composer: Charlie Chaplin
Smile though your heart is aching
Smile, even though it's breaking
When there are clouds, in the sky, you'll get by
If you smile, through your fear and sorrow
Smile, and there'll be tomorrow
You'll see the sun come shining through
If you'll....
Light up your face with gladness
Hide every trace of sadness
Although a tear, may be ever so near,
That's the time, you must keep on trying
Smile, what's the use of crying?
You'll find that life is still worthwhile,
If you'll just....
Light up your face with gladness
Hide every trace of sadness
Although a tear, may be ever so near,
That's the time, you must keep on trying
Smile, what's the use of crying?
You'll find that life is still worthwhile,
If you'll just....
Smile

Through the Years

length: 3:09
Through the years,
I'll take my place beside you,
Smiling through the years.

Through the years,
I'll keep my place beside you;
Smiling through your tears.

I'll be near,
No matter when or where;
Remember,
What is mine,
I'll always share

Through the night,
I'll be a star to guide you
Shining Bright,
Though a cloud may come and hide you.

Through the years,
till love is gone
and time first disappears

I'll come to you
Smiling through the years....
