Jingle Bells
Dashing through the snow
On a one-horse open sleigh,
Over the fields we go,
Laughing all the way;
Bells on bob-tail ring,
making spirits bright,
What fun it is to ride and sing
A sleighing song tonight.

Jingle bells, jingle bells,
Jingle all the way!
O what fun it is to ride
One-horse open sleigh.

Jingle bells, jingle bells,
Jingle all the way!
O what fun it is to ride
One-horse open sleigh.

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

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

Dashing through the snow
On a one-horse open sleigh,
Over the fields we go,
Laughing all the way;
Bells on bob-tail ring,
making spirits bright,
What fun it is to ride and sing
A sleighing song tonight.

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

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

Jingle bells, Batman smells,
Robin laid an egg
Batmobile lost its wheel
And Joker got away

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;
He got into a drifted bank,
And there we got upsot.

Chorus
Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells,
Jingle all the way!
O what fun it is to ride
In a one-horse open sleigh.

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

Now the ground is white
Go it while you're young,
Take the girls tonight
And sing this sleighing song;
Just get a bob-tailed bay
Two-forty as his speed
Hitch him to an open sleigh
And crack! you'll take the lead.

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

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

What fun it is to love and sing
What fun it is to love and sing
What fun it is to love and sing
Ha ha ha
What fun it is to love and sing
Singin' song tonightback to top
Green Christmas
Green christmas by barenaked ladies

The streets are filled with christmas cheer
At least it's only once a year
Perfect parcels tied with perfect bows
And carols ringing in my ear
Bundled up against the cold
Lines wherever gifts are sold
Each shop window displays a christmas scene
For everybody young and old
Icicles on eavesdrops
And tinsel on the trees
But it's a green christmas for me

Couples skating on the pond
Making angels on the lawn
Five red mittens drying on the rack
And needles shedding tannenbaums
Red bows on the railings
And snowflakes on the ground
But it's a green christmas in this town

Green
Cause of everything I miss
All this mistletoe no kiss
And with every christmas wish
There would be no greater gift
Than to have this envy lift

Carolers are at my door
Don't wanna hear them anymore
Stockings on the mantle
It snows here everyday
But it's a green christmas anyway

Red nose on the reindeer
And tinsel on the tree
But it's a green christmas for meback to top
I Saw Three Ships
I saw three ships come sailing in,
On Christmas Day, on Christmas Day;
I saw three ships come sailing in,
On Christmas Day in the morning.
And all the bells on earth shall ring,
On Christmas Day in the morning.
Let us all rejoice again,
On Christmas Day, on Christmas Day;
Let us all rejoice again,
On Christmas Day in the morning!

I saw three ships come sailing in,
On Christmas Day, on Christmas Day;
I saw three ships come sailing in,
On Christmas Day in the morning.back to top
Hanukkah Blessings
How Lucky are we that we have lights so we can see
Although the day is done
What a miracle that a spark lifts these candles out of the dark
Every evening, one by one
Until the end of hanukkah, of hanukkah.

With the jingle bells and the toys
And the TV shows and noise
It's easy to forget
At the end of the day
Our whole family will say
These words for Hanukkah

Baruch atah Adonai, eloheinu melech ha'olam, asher kid'shanu
B'mitz'votav v'tzivanu l'hadlik ner shel Hanukkah.

Light the candles for Hanukkah, for Hanukkah
We remember how Maccabees
Fought so all of us could be free
And so we celebrate on this festival of the lights
There's a joyful time every night
But we illuminate the candles of Hanukkah, of Hanukkah

Baruch atah Adonai Eloheinu melech ha'olam she'asa niseem
La'avoteinu bayamim haheim baz'man hazeh.

Elf's Lament
(feat. Michael Buble)

I'm a man of reason, and they say "'Tis the season to be jolly"
But it's folly when you volley for position

Never in existence has there been such a resistance
To ideas meant to free us
If you could see us, then you'd listen

Toiling through the ages, making toys on garnished wages
There's no union
We're only through when we outdo the competition

I make toys, but I've got aspirations
Make some noise
Use your imagination
Girls and boys, before you wish for what you wish for
There's a list for who's been
Naughty or nice, but consider the price to an elf

A full indentured servitude can reflect on one's attitude
But that silly red hat just makes the fat man look outrageous

Absurd though it may seem, you know, I've heard there's even been illegal doping
And though we're coping, I just hope it's not contagious

You try to start a movement, and you think you see improvement
But when thrown into the moment, we just don't seem so courageous

I make toys, but I've got aspirations
Make some noise
Use your imagination
Girls and boys, before you wish for what you wish for
There's a list for who's been
Naughty or nice, but consider the price to an elf

You look at yourself
You're an elf
And the shelf is just filled with disappointing memories
Trends come and go, and your friends wanna know why you aren't just happy making crappy little gizmos
Every kid knows they'll just throw this stuff away

We're used to repetition, so we drew up a petition
We, the undersigned, feel undermined
Let's redefine "employment"

We know that we've got leverage, so we'll hand the fat man a beverage
And sit back while we attack the utter lack of our enjoyment

It may be tough to swallow, but our threats are far from hollow
He may thunder, but if he blunders, he may wonder where the toys went

I make toys, but I've got aspirations
Make some noise
Use your imagination
Girls and boys, before you wish for what you wish for
There's a list for who's been
Naughty or nice, but consider the price
Naughty or nice, but consider the price
Naughty or nice, but consider the price to an elfback to top
Snowman
Made of snow, I don't know
How I fit in
To and fro, people go
I stand and grin
Way to go, even though
I can't begin
Made of snow, I don't know
How I fit in

Ever cold, love untold
I don't belong
Have and hold, so untold
I think they're wrong
Heart of gold, grownin' old
Just like the song
Ever cold, love untold
I don't belong

Button eyes, lullabys,
I melt away
Criticized, compromised
White turns to grey
I'm paralyzed, otherwise
I'd leave today
Button eyes, lullabys,
I melt away

Made of snow, I don't know
How I fit in
Ever cold, love untold
I don't fit in
Button eyes, lullabys,
I don't fit in
Made of snow, I don't know
How I fit inback to top
Do They Know It's Christmas?
It's Christmastime; there's no need to be afraid
At Christmastime, we let in light and we banish shade
And in our world of plenty we can spread a smile of joy
Throw your arms around the world at Christmastime
But say a prayer and pray for the other ones
At Christmastime

It's hard, but when you're having fun
There's a world outside your window
And it's a world of dread and fear
And the only water flowing is the bitter sting of tears

And the Christmas bells that ring there
Are the clanging chimes of doom
Well tonight thank God it's them instead of you
There won't be snow in Africa this Christmastime

The greatest gift they'll get this year is life
Oh, where nothing ever grows, no rain or river flows
Do they know it's Christmastime at all?

Here's to you, raise a glass for ev'ryone
Here's to them, underneath that burning sun
Do they know it's Christmastime at all?

Feed the world
Feed the world

Feed the world
Let them know it's Christmastime again
Feed the world
Let them know it's Christmastime again
Feed the world
Let them know it's Christmastime again
Feed the world
Let them know it's Christmastime againback to top
Footprints
I followed footprints in the snow,
Never knowing if I was right behind you,
Looking down no one would know,
I wasn't walking hand in hand beside you.

For your footprints lead the way,
To a hearth where hearts we made surround you,
You're awash in all its glow,
And I'm still standing in the snow.

I stood and watched the lights go out,
While the snowflakes settled all around me,
And though it filled my heart with doubt,
Couldn't move and this is where you found me.

As our footprints disappear,
Snow erasing how I came to be here,
I've got nowhere else to go,
Now you're standing in the snow.

Look for understanding in the snow,
You look just outstanding in the snow,
Standing in the snow.

[Interlude]

Now it's almost Christmas Eve,
And I'm surrounded with the sound of laughter,
To give is better than to deceive,
For I received a happy ever after.

You might have left me in the cold,
A fitting ending for the fool that I was,
But you'd be cuddled up alone,
And I'd still be standing in the snow.back to top
Deck the Stills
Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young, Crosby

Christmastime, Oh Yeah
Now that all the snow has fallen
It's crunching in below my feet
And all the Christmas lights are shining
On houses up and down my street
And I can see the happy families inside
If only for a moment, it's Christmas time

I think I see the children down the street
Here they come caroling
Now we can hear them, they sing "Oh yeah"

Mr. Johnson bought a Christmas tree
He set it up with his family
They're opening their presents big and small
Mr. Johnson got a big, brown, bowling ball
And Sally got a pair of brand new skates
And Jimmy got a box of frosty flakes
He knows that there's a special little prize inside
What a happy moment, it's Christmas time

The carolers are standing in line
They sing, "Oh yeah"
Oh yeahback to top
Christmas Pics
Turkey is done, reviews are mixed,
When's Mom gonna get that hearing aid fixed?
Hold still, wait for the click,
You're in this year's Christmas Pics

Brother, we don't agree
About the government and where to put the tree,
Hold still, wait for the click,
We're in this year's Christmas Pics.

Flashbulbs and wine,
And hold that smile,
Everyone's here, flown for miles,
Looks like you're still the test and we're looking our best

Tears rollin' down my nephew's face,
Santa's house can be a scary place,
Hold still... wait for it,
Hold still, wait for the click,
We're in this year's Christmas,
This year's Christmas,
This year's Christmas Pics.back to top

Auld Lang Syne
Should auld acquaintance be forgot
And never brought to mind?

Should auld acquaintance be forgot
And days of Auld Lang Syne.

For Auld Lang Syne, my dear,
For Auld Lang Syne,
We'll take a cup of kindness yet
For Auld Lang Syne.

And here's the hand, my trusty friend
And gives a hand of thine
We'll take a cup of kindness yet
For Auld Lang Syne.

For Auld Lang Syne, my dear,
For Auld Lang Syne,
We'll take a cup of kindness yet
For Auld Lang Syne.back to top
