CHRISTMAS CHOPSTICKS

Twas the night before Christmas
and all through the house
not a creature was sturring
not even a mouse
all the stockings was hum
by the chimney with care
in the hope that St.Nicholas
soon will be there.

 

He's bringing lots of toys
for girls and boys
but wait until you see
that Merry Christmas tree.

 

So on Dasher on Dancer on Prancer and Vixen
on Comet on Cupid on Donner and Blitzen
to the top of the roof
to the top of the wall
Here they come and they're saying
'Merry Christmas to all!'

LET IT SNOW

Oh, the weather outside is frightful
But the fire is so delightful
And since we've no place to go
Let it snow! Let it snow! Let it snow!

 

Man it doesn't show signs of stopping
And I brought me some corn for popping
The lights are turned way down low
Let it snow! Let it snow!

 

When we finally kiss goodnight
How I'll hate going out in the storm
But if you'll really hold me tight
All the way home I'll be warm

 

And the fire is slowly dying
And, my dear, we're still goodbying
But as long as you'd love me so
Let it snow! Let it snow and snow!

 

When we finally kiss goodnight
How I'll hate going out in the storm
But if you really grab me tight
All the way home I'll be warm

 

Oh, the fire is slowly dying
And, my dear, we're still goodbying
But as long as you'd love me so
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow

 

DIDDLY SQUAT

Oh, I just got a message from 'ol Saint Nick way up in Christmasland
And he says that the toys for good girls and boys are being made as planned
There's a truck for little Billy and a dolly for Molly dear
But you ain't gettin' diddly squat 'cause you really messed up this year

 

Oh, the winter fields are white with snow and the lights are shining bright
And wee little heads tucked up in bed dream of sugar plums this night
You might dream of big red apples and those candy canes so near
But you ain't gettin' diddly squat 'cause you really messed up this year

 

Fa-la-la-la-you're in trouble! Fa-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la!

 

When your mother asked you to wash the dishes
Well you said, "No no no!"
And you would not pick up your socks
So you might find a stocking full of coal
HO-HO-HOOOOOOOOOO!

 

Oh, you know that Santa's watching you and he keeps a great big list
And when I tell him the things you do, he really will be mad
He'll sit you on his knee and then he'll whisper in your ear
And you ain't gettin' diddly squat 'cause you really messed up
Oh You really messed up
Oh you really, you really messed up this year

You ain't gettin' diddly squat

MARY'S BOYCHILD

Mary's boy child Jesus Christ was born on Christmas Day
And man will live for evermore because of Christmas Day

 

Long time ago in Bethlehem, so the Holy Bible said
Mary's boy child Jesus Christ was born on Christmas Day

 

Hark, now hear the angels sing, a king was born today
And man will live for evermore, because of Christmas Day
Mary's boy child Jesus Christ was born on Christmas Day

 

While shepherds watch their flocks by night
They see a bright new shining star
They hear a choir sing a song, the music seemed to come from afar

 

Hark, now hear the angels sing, a king was born today
And man will live for evermore, because of Christmas Day

 

For a moment the world was aglow, all the bells rang out
There were tears of joy and laughter, people shouted
"Let everyone know, there is hope for all to find peace"

 

Oh my Lord
You sent Your son to save us
Oh my Lord
Your very self You gave us
Oh my Lord
That sin may not enslave us
And love may reign once more

 

Oh my Lord
When in the crib they found Him
Oh my Lord
A golden halo crowned Him
Oh my Lord
They gathered all around Him
To see Him and adore (this day will live forever)

 

Oh my Lord (so praise the Lord)
They had become to doubt You
Oh my Lord (He is the truth forever)
What did they know about You?
Oh my Lord (so praise the Lord)
But they were lost without You
They needed You so bad (His light is shining on us)

 

Oh my Lord (so praise the Lord)
With the child's adoration
Oh my lord (He is a personation)
There came great jubilation
Oh my Lord (so praise the Lord)
And full of admiration
They realized what they had (until the sun falls from the sky)

 

Oh my Lord (oh praise the Lord)
You sent Your son to save us
Oh my Lord (this day will live forever)
Your very self You gave us
Oh my Lord (so praise the Lord)

OH COME, ALL YE FAITHFUL

 

O come, all ye faithful,
joyful and triumphant!
O come ye, O come ye to Bethlehem!
Come and behold him,
born the King of angels.

Refrain:
O come, let us adore him,
O come, let us adore him,
O come, let us adore him,
Christ the Lord!

 

God from true God, and
Light from Light eternal,
born of a virgin, to earth he comes!
Only-begotten Son of God the Father: [Refrain]

 

Yea, Lord, we greet thee,
born this happy morning;
Jesus, to thee be all glory giv’n!
Word of the Father, now in flesh appearing: [Refrain]

O come, let us adore him,
O come, let us adore him,
O come, let us adore him,
Christ the Lord!

O come, let us adore him…………………..Christ the Lord!

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!”

WE WISH YOU A MERRY CHRISTMAS

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

JOY TO THE WORLD

Joy to the world, the Lord is come
Let Earth receive her King
Let every heart prepare Him room
And Heaven and nature sing
And Heaven and nature sing
And Heaven, and Heaven, and nature sing

Joy to the Earth, the Savior reigns
Let all their songs employ
While fields and floods, rocks, hills and plains
Repeat the sounding joy
Repeat the sounding joy
Repeat, repeat, the sounding joy

 

No more let sins and sorrows grow,
Nor thorns infest the ground;
He comes to make His blessings flow
Far as the curse is found,
Far as the curse is found,
Far as, far as, the curse is found.

 

He rules the world with truth and grace
And makes the nations prove
The glories of His righteousness
And wonders of His love
And wonders of His love
And wonders, wonders, of His love

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

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

I'LL BE HOME FOR CHRISTMAS

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

 

Christmas eve will find me
Where the love light gleams
I'll be home for Christmas

If only in my dreams

 

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

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

 

HARK NOW HEAR THE ANGELS SING

Hark! The herald angels sing
"Glory to the new-born king
Peace on earth and mercy mild
God and sinners reconciled"
Joyful all ye nations rise

 

Join the triumph of the skies
With angelic host proclaim
"Christ is born in Bethlehem"
Hark! The herald angels sing
"Glory to the new-born king"

 

Christ, by highest heaven adored,
Christ, the everlasting Lord.
Late in time behold him come,
Offspring of a virgin's womb.
Veiled in flesh the Godhead see;

 

Hail, the incarnate deity,
Pleased as Man with to dwell,
Jesus, our Emmanuel!
Hark! the herald angels sing
Glory to the newborn King.

 

Hail the heaven-born Prince of Peace!
Hail the Sun of Righteousness!
Light and life to all He brings
Risen with healing in His wings
Mild He lays His glory by

 

Born that man no more may die
Born to raise the sons of earth
Born to give them second birth
Hark! The herald angels sing
"Glory to the new-born king"

AWAY IN A MANGER

Away in a manger
No crib for a bed
The little Lord Jesus
Laid down His sweet head

The stars in the bright sky
Looked down where He lay
The little Lord Jesus
Asleep on the hay

The cattle are lowing
The Baby awakes
But little Lord Jesus
No crying He makes

I love You, Lord Jesus
Look down from the sky
And stay by my side
Until morning is nigh

Be near me, Lord Jesus
I ask You to stay
Close by me forever
And love me I pray

Bless all the dear children
In Your tender care
And fit us for heaven
To live with You there

THE FIRST NOEL

 

The first Noel 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.
Noel Noel Noel Noel!
Born is the King of Israel!

The shepherds 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.
Noel Noel Noel Noel!
Born is the King of Israel!

And by the light of that same star
Three wise men, came from country far,
To seek for a King was their intent
And to follow the star
Wherever it went.
Noel Noel Noel Noel!
Born is the King of Israel!

This star drew nigh to the northwest
Over Bethlehem it took its rest,
And there it did both stop and stay
Right over the place where Jesus lay.
Noel Noel Noel Noel!

Born is the King of Israel!
