01. Do You Hear What I Hear
Said the night wind to the little lamb
Do you see what I see
Way up in the sky little lamb
Do you see what I see
A star, a star
Dancing in the night
With a tail as big as a kite
With a tail as big as a kite

Said the little lamb to the shepard boy
Do you hear what I hear
Ringing through the sky shepard boy
Do you hear what I hear
A song, a song
High above the tree
With a voice as big as the sea
With a voice as big as the sea

Said the shepard boy to the mighty king
Do you know what I know
In your palace wall mighty king
Do you know what I know
A child, a child
Shivers in the cold
Let us bring him silver and gold
Let us bring him silver and gold

Said the king to the people everywhere
Listen to what I say
Pray for peace people everywhere
Listen to what I say
The child, the child
Sleeping in the night
He will bring us goodness and light
He will bring us goodness and light

Said the little lamb to the shepard boy
Do you hear what I hear

02. The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire)
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

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

So I’m offering this simple phrase
To kids from one to ninety-two
Although it’s been said many times, many ways
Merry Christmas to you

Chestnuts roasting on an open fire
Jack Frost nipping at your nose
Yuletide carols being sung by a choir

So I’m offering this simple phrase
To kids from one to ninety-two
Although it’s been said many times, many ways
Merry Christmas
Merry Christmas
Merry Christmas to you

03. Baby It’s Cold Outside (feat. Michael Bublé)
I really can’t stay
Baby, it’s cold outside
I’ve got to go away
Baby, it’s cold outside
This evening has been
Been hoping that you’d drop in
So very nice
I’ll hold your hands, they’re just like ice
My mother will start to worry
Beautiful, what’s your hurry?
My father will be pacing the floor
Listen to the fire place roar
So really I’d better scurry
Beautiful, please don’t hurry
But maybe just half a drink more
Put some records on while I pour

The neighbors might think
Baby, it’s bad out there
Say what’s in this drink?
No cabs to be had out there
I wish I knew how
Your eyes are like starlight now
To break this spell
I’ll take your hat, your hair looks swell
I ought to say no no no, sir
Mind if I move in closer?
At least I’m gonna say that I tried
What’s the sense in hurting my pride?
I really can’t stay
Baby, don’t hold out
Baby it’s cold outside
(You’re very pushy you know)
(I’d like to think of it as opportunistic)

I simply must go
Baby, it’s cold outside
The answer is “No”
But, baby, it’s cold outside
This welcome has been
How lucky that you dropped in
So nice and warm
Look out the window at that storm
My sister will be suspicious
Gosh your lips look delicious
My brother will be there at the door
Waves upon a tropical shore
My maiden aunt’s mind is vicious
Gosh your lips are delicious
But maybe just a cigarette more
Never such a blizzard before

I’ve got to get home
Baby, you’ll freeze out there
Say, lend me a coat?
It’s up to your knees out there
You’ve really been grand
I thrill when you touch my hand
But don’t you see
How can you do this thing to me?
There’s bound to be talk tomorrow
Think of my life-long sorrow
At least there will be plenty implied
If you got pneumonia and died
I really can’t stay
Get over that hold out
Baby it’s cold
Baby it’s cold outside
Okay, fine, just another drink
I took alot of convincing

04. Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas
Have yourself a merry little Christmas.
Let your heart be light,
From now on our troubles
Will be out of sight, hm.

Have yourself a merry little Christmas,
Make the Yule-tide 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
Up on the highest bough,
And have yourself
A merry little Christmas now

Have yourself a merry little Christmas (Merry little Christmas)
Make the Yule-tide gay,
From now on our troubles
Will be miles away (Miles away), 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, oh
Hang a shining star
Up on the highest bough (bough)

And have yourself a merry little Christmas
Have yourself a merry little Christmas
And have yourself a merry little Christmas now
Oh yeah

05. 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 baby 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 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
I 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?
Baby, all I want for Christmas is you, you baby

Oh, all the lights are shining so brightly everywhere
And the sound of children’s laughter fills the air
And everyone is singing
I hear those sleigh bells ringing
Santa won’t you bring me the one I really need
Won’t you please bring my baby to me?

I don’t want a lot for Christmas
This is all I’m asking for
I just want to 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
Baby, all I want for Christmas
Is you yeah
You
Is you woo
All I want for Christmas is you (All I want for Christmas is you)
All I want for Christmas is you (All I want for Christmas is you)
Give me more
All I want for Christmas is you
Give me two now
All I want for Christmas is you
I sing all I want for Christmas is you
All I want for Christmas is you
I don’t need nobody more than you
I don’t need nobody else but you
I don’t need nobody (I don’t need nobody)
I don’t need nobody, but you (I don’t need nobody)
All I want for Christmas is you
All I want for Christmas is you
All I want for Christmas is you
All I want for Christmas is you…

06. What Are You Doing New Year’s Eve?
Maybe it’s much too early in the game
Aah, but I thought I’d ask you just the same
What are you doing New Year’s
New Year’s Eve?

Wonder whose arms will hold you good and tight
When it’s exactly twelve o’clock that night
Welcoming in the New Year
New Year’s Eve

Maybe I’m crazy to suppose
I’d ever be the one you chose
Out of a thousand invitations
You received

Aah, but in case I stand one little chance
Here comes the jackpot question in advance, baby
What are you doing New Year’s
New Year’s Eve?
Ohhh…

Maybe I’m crazy to suppose
I’d ever be the one you chose
Out of a thousand invitations
You received
Ohh…

But in case I stand one little chance
Here comes the jackpot question in advance
What are you doing on New Year’s Eve?
Tell me what are you doing New Year’s Eve?

07. December Prayer
In the touch of a friend,
In the breathe of a child,
In the eyes of a soldier coming home
To his mother’s grateful smile,
In the sight of falling snow,
And the memories it brings,
In the season when you find some peace,
In the simple tender things,
Open your heart and look around, listen… listen…

Hear the song within a silence,
See the beauty when there’s nothing there,
Sing a song within a silence
That hope and love are everywhere,
And when the quiet night is falling
Watch an angel dancing in the air
To the song, the song within the silence
a December Prayer, a December Prayer.

In the strength of your hand as it holds unto mine,
and the promise that we’re not alone
In this place and time,
In the gifts that you give, I am humbled and amazed
Far beyond this day and time of year
We are in a state of grace.
Open your heart and look around, listen… listen…

Hear the song within a silence,
See the beauty when there’s nothing there,
Sing a song within a silence
That hope and love are everywhere,
and when the quiet night is falling
Watch an angel dancing in the air
To the song, the song within the silence
a December Prayer, a December Prayer.
Listen… listen…

Hear the song within a silence,
See the beauty when there’s nothing there,
Sing a song within a silence
That hope and love are everywhere,
And when the quiet night is falling
Watch an angel dancing in the air
to the song, the song within the silence
a December Prayer, a December Prayer.

08. When You Wish Upon a Star
When you wish upon a star
Makes no difference who you are
Anything your heart desires
Will come to you

If your heart is in your dream
No request is too extreme
When you wish upon a star
As dreamers do
Fate is kind
She brings to those who love
Their sweet fullfillment of their secret longing
Like a boat out of the blue
Fate steps in and sees you through
When you wish upon a star
Your dreams come true

09. 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, sing Halleluiah
Christ the savior is born
Christ our savior is
Christ our savior is
Christ our savior is born

Silent night (Silent night)
Silent night
Silent night
Silent night
And praise the Lord
Silent night

10. River
It’s coming on Christmas,
They’re cutting down trees.
They’re putting up reindeer
And singing songs of joy and peace,
Oh, I wish I had a river I could skate away on.

But it don’t snow here,
Stays pretty green.
I’m gonna make a lot of money
And and then I’m gonna quit this crazy scene.
Oh, I wish I had a river I could skate away on.

I wish I had a river so long,
I would teach my feet to fly.
Oh, I wish I had a river I could skate away on.
I made my baby cry.

He tried hard to help me,
He put me at ease.
And he loved me so naughty,
Made me weak in the knees.
Oh I wish I had a river I could skate away on.

I’m so hard to handle,
I’m selfish and I’m sad.
Now I’ve gone and lost the best baby
That I’ve ever had.
Oh, I wish I had a river I could skate away on.

I wish I had a river so long,
I would teach my feet to fly.
Oh, I wish I had a river I could skate away on.
I made my baby say goodbye.
Say goodbye
Say goodbye

It’s coming on Christmas,
They’re cutting down trees.
They’re putting up reindeer
And singing songs of joy and peace,
I wish I had a river I could skate away on.
I wish I had a river
I could skate away on.
And on, and on, and on

11. Holly Jolly Christmas
Have a holly jolly Christmas
It’s the best time of the year
I don’t know if there’ll be snow
But have a cup of cheer

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

Oh ho the mistletoe
Hung where you can see
Somebody waits for you
Kiss him 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 ho the mistletoe
Hung where you can see
Somebody waits for you
Kiss him once for me

So have a holly jolly Christmas
And in case you didn’t hear
Oh by golly have a holly jolly
Christmas this year

12. White Christmas
I’m dreaming of a white Christmas
Just like the ones I used to know
Where the treetops 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 Christmases be white

I’m dreaming of a white Christmas
With every Christmas card I write
May your days be merry and bright
And may all your Christmases be white

I’m dreaming of a white Christmas
I’m dreaming of a white Christmas
I’m dreaming, dreaming of a white Christmas
I’m dreaming, dreaming of a white Christmas
I’m dreaming, dreaming of a white Christmas

13. Mother’s Spiritual*
On a street corner where the kids boogie all night
Or where the winds sing and the stars shine like holiday lights
Come a band of angels
Salvation in their might and as for peace on earth

Feel this love, my brothers and sisters
Feel the season turn, she is the mother of time
Wonders that take you, rivers that give
That’s where mother’s spiritual lives

Talk of a ruby, love, lover’s share
Find your love, lose your love here and there
So you go home, do your own thing, the ocean sings to me
That love is always alive and part of thee

Feel this love, my brothers and sisters
Feel the season turn, she is the mother of time
Light and darkness come to her kiss
‘Cause that’s where mother’s spiritual lives

Come to the lights my sisters and take what you need
Doesn’t matter, my brothers, your Sunday creed
‘Cause each one’s a lover to this winter night star
A pilgrim, a pioneer, that’s who you are

Feel this love, my brothers and sisters
Feel the season turn, she is the mother of time
It’s not war, it’s life she gives
And that’s where mother’s spiritual lives

14. Let It Snow! Let It Snow! 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

Now, it doesn’t show signs of stoppin’
And I brought some corn for poppin’
The lights are turned way down low
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow

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

Oh, the fire is slowly dying
And, my dear, we’re still good-bye-ing
But as long as you love me so
Let it snow, let it snow, and 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

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

The fire is slowly dying
And, my dear, we’re still good-bye-ing
But as long as you love me so
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow

Let it snow
