2023 SONGLIST

ALL I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS (IS YOU)

I don't want a lot for Christmas
There is just one thing I need
I don't care about the presents

underneath the Christmas tree
I just want you for my own
More than you could ever know
Make my wish come true
All I want for Christmas is you

I don't want a lot for Christmas
There is just one thing I need (and I)
Don't care about the presents

underneath the Christmas tree
I don't need to hang my stocking

there upon the fireplace
Santa Claus won't make me happy

with a toy on Christmas Day

 

I just want you for my own
More than you could ever know
Make my wish come true
All I want for Christmas is you
You, baby

Oh, I won't ask for much this Christmas
I won't even wish for snow (and I)
I'm just gonna keep on waiting

underneath the mistletoe
I won't make a list and send it

to the North Pole for Saint Nick
I won't even stay awake

to hear those magic reindeer click

 

'Cause I just want you here tonight
Holding on to me so tight
What more can I do?
Oh, baby, all I want for Christmas is you
You, baby

Oh-oh, all the lights are shining

so brightly everywhere (so brightly, baby)
And the sound of children's

laughter fills the air (oh, oh, yeah)
And everyone is singing (oh, yeah)
I hear those sleigh bells ringing
Santa, won't you bring me the one I really need? (Yeah, oh)
Won't you please bring my baby to me?

 

Oh, I don't want a lot for Christmas
This is all I'm asking for
I just wanna see my baby

standing right outside my door

Oh, I just want you for my own
More than you could ever know
Make my wish come true
Oh, baby, all I want for Christmas is you
You, baby

 

All I want for Christmas is you, baby
All I want for Christmas is you, baby
All I want for Christmas is you, baby
All I want for Christmas (all I really want) is you, baby
All I want (I want) for Christmas (all I really want) is you, baby

JINGLE BELLS

Jingle bells Jingle bells

Jingle all the way

Oh, what fun It is to ride

In a one-horse open sleigh (Repeat)

 

Dashing through the snow

In a one-horse open sleigh

O'er the fields we go

Laughing all the way Ha ha ha

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 (Repeat)

 

Now the ground is white

And the night is young

Take the sleigh tonight

And join us in this song

Just get a bob tailed bay

Get ready for a run

Then hitch him to a sleigh

And now we'll have some fun!

 

Jingle bells Jingle bells

Jingle all the way

Oh, what fun It is to ride

In a one-horse open sleigh (Repeat)

 

HAVE YOURSELF A MERRY LITTLE CHRISTMAS

Have yourself a merry little Christmas
Let your heart be light
Next year all our troubles, will be out of sight

 

Have yourself a merry little Christmas
Make the Yuletide gay
Next year all 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
Will be near to us once more

Through the years we all will be together
If the Lord allows
Hang a shining star upon the highest bow
And have yourself a merry little Christmas now

CHRISTMAS DOWN UNDER

The waves are pounding on the shore today
The sun is shining on the sand
And we've been swimming in the water
We've been living off the land
Yeah, we've been breathing underwater
With all those animals that can
Yeah, we are living underwater
Yeah, we are living off the land

 

Hey, it's Christmas down under
Hey, it's Christmas down under
Hey, it's Christmas down under
Hey, it's Christmas down under

 

Some say that Jesus had a daughter
But I don't guess he ever met her
And she had never met her father
No, I guess this world couldn't let her
No, this world needed a martyr
And, hey, it's hard to understand
But if you need to make a martyr
You got to take away the man

 

Hey, it's Christmas down under
Hey, it's Christmas down under
Hey, it's Christmas down under
Hey, it's Christmas down under

 

One day my dog will be a dragon
It's so hard to understand
All dragon wings and dragon fire
And dragon bones beneath the land
So tonight, when the clouds break
With all the lightning and the thunder
Hey, come find me 'neath the lights of the tiki bars

Hey, it's Christmas down under

 

(Hey, it's Christmas down under)

WE WISH YOU A MERRY CHRISTMAS

We wish you a merry Christmas
We wish you a merry Christmas
We wish you a merry Christmas and a happy new year

 

Good tidings we bring to you and your kin
We wish you a merry Christmas and a happy new year

 

Oh, bring us some figgy pudding
Oh, bring us some figgy pudding
Oh, bring us some figgy pudding
And bring it right here

 

Good tidings we bring to you and your kin
We wish you a merry Christmas and a happy new year

 

We won't go until we get some
We won't go until we get some
We won't go until we get some
So bring it right here

 

Good tidings we bring to you and your kin
We wish you a merry Christmas and a happy new year

 

Good tidings we bring to you and your kin
We wish you a merry Christmas and a happy new year

 

We wish you a merry Christmas
We wish you a merry Christmas
We wish you a merry Christmas and a happy new year

WHITE CHRISTMAS

I'm dreaming of a white Christmas
Just like the ones I used to know
Where the tree tops 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 Christmas' be white


I'm dreaming of a white Christmas
Just like the ones I used to know
Where the tree tops glisten
And the 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, may your days, may your days
Be merry and bright
And may all your Christmas' be white

SILENT NIGHT

Silent night, holy night

All is calm, and all is bright

Round yon Virgin Mother and Child

Holy infant so tender and mild

Sleep in heavenly peace

Sleep in heavenly peace

 

Silent night, holy night!
Shepherds quake at the sight.
Glories stream from heaven afar
Heavenly hosts sing Alleluia,
Christ the Savior is born!
Christ the Savior is born
 

Silent night, holy night!
Son of God love's pure light.
Radiant beams from Thy holy face
With dawn of redeeming grace,
Jesus Lord, at Thy birth
Jesus Lord, at Thy birth

 

JINGLE BELL ROCK


Jingle bell, jingle bell, jingle bell rock
Jingle bells swing and jingle bells ring
Snowin' and blowin' up bushels of fun
Now the jingle hop has begun

 

Jingle bell, jingle bell, jingle bell rock
Jingle bells chime in jingle bell time
Dancin' and prancin' in Jingle Bell Square
In the frosty air

 

What a bright time, it's the right time
To rock the night away
Jingle bell time is a swell time
To go glidin' in a one-horse sleigh

 

Giddy-up jingle horse, pick up your feet
Jingle around the clock
Mix and a-mingle in the jinglin' feet
That's the jingle bell rock

 

Jingle bell, jingle bell, jingle bell rock
Jingle bells chime in jingle bell time
Dancin' and prancin' in Jingle Bell Square
In the frosty air

 

What a bright time, it's the right time
To rock the night away
Jingle bell time is a swell time
To go glidin' in a one-horse sleigh

 

Giddy-up jingle horse, pick up your feet
Jingle around the clock
Mix and a-mingle in the jinglin' feet
That's the jingle bell
That's the jingle bell
That's the jingle bell rock

RUDOPLH THE RED-NOSED REINDEER

 

You know Dasher and Dancer and Prancer and Vixen
Comet and Cupid and Donner 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 all the reindeer loved him

As they shouted out with glee

"Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer

You'll go down in history!”

SANTA CLAUS IS COMING TO TOWN

You better watch out
You better not cry
You better not pout
I'm telling you why

Santa Claus is comin' to town
Santa Claus is comin' to town
Santa Claus is comin' to town

He's making a list
He's checking it twice
He's gonna find out
Who's naughty or nice

Santa Claus is comin' to town
Santa Claus is comin' to town
Santa Claus is comin' to town

He sees you when you're sleeping
He knows when you're awake
He knows if you've been bad or good
So be good for goodness sake

So you better watch out
You better not cry
You better not pout
I'm telling you why

Santa Claus is comin' to town
Santa Claus is comin' to town
Santa Claus is comin' to town

The kids in girl and boyland
Will have a jubilee
They're gonna build a toyland
All around the Christmas tree

 

So you better watch out
You better not cry
You better not pout
I'm telling you why

Santa Claus (is comin' to town)
Santa Claus (is comin' to town)
Santa Claus is comin'
Santa Claus is comin'
Santa Claus is comin'
To town

AUSSIE JINGLE BELLS

 

Dashing through the bush, in a rusty Holden ute,

Kicking up the dust, esky in the boot

Kelpie by my side, singing Christmas songs,

It’s summer time and I am in my singlet, shorts and thongs.

Oh!

Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way.

Christmas in Australia on a scorching summer’s day, hey!

Jingle bells, jingle bells, Christmas time is beaut.

Oh what fun it is to ride in a rusty Holden ute.

Engine’s getting hot, we dodge the kangaroos,

The swaggie climbs aboard, he is welcome too.

All the family is there, sitting by the pool,

Christmas day in the Aussie way, by the Barbecue.

Oh!

 

Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way.

Christmas in Australia on a scorching summer’s day, hey!

Jingle bells, jingle bells, Christmas time is beaut.

Oh what fun it is to ride in a rusty Holden ute.

 

 Come the afternoon, grandpa has a doze,

The kids and Uncle Bruce, are swimming in their clothes.

The time comes round to go, we take a family snap,

And pack the car and all shoot through before the washing up.

Oh!

Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way.

Christmas in Australia on a scorching summer’s day, hey!

Jingle bells, jingle bells, Christmas time is beaut.

Oh what fun it is to ride in a rusty Holden ute.

Oh what fun it is to ride in a ru-st-y Hol-den ute.
