AWAY IN A MANGER
Back to Top


Away in a manger no crib for his bed. 
The little Lord Jesus lay down his sweet head. 
The stars in the sky looked down where he lay. 
The little Lord Jesus asleep on the hay. 

The cattle are lowing, the poor baby wakes. 
But little Lord Jesus, no crying he makes. 
I love thee Lord Jesus, look down from the sky. 
And stay by my side 'till morning is nigh. 

Be near me Lord Jesus, I ask thee to stay. 
Close by me forever and love me, I pray. 
Bless all the dear children in thy tender care. 
And fit us for heaven to live with thee there. 

Away in a manger no crib for his bed. 
The little Lord Jesus lay down his sweet head. 
The stars in the sky looked down where he lay. 
The little Lord Jesus asleep on the hay. 

O COME ALL YE FAITHFUL
Back to Top

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.

True God of true God, Light from Light Eternal,
Lo, He shuns not the Virgin's womb;
Son of the Father, begotten, not created;

Refrain

Sing, choirs of angels, sing in exultation;
O sing, all ye citizens of heaven above!
Glory to God, all glory in the highest;

Refrain

See how the shepherds, summoned to His cradle,
Leaving their flocks, draw nigh to gaze;
We too will thither bend our joyful footsteps;

Refrain

Lo! star led chieftains, Magi, Christ adoring,
Offer Him incense, gold, and myrrh;
We to the Christ Child bring our hearts' oblations.

Refrain

Child, for us sinners poor and in the manger,
We would embrace Thee, with love and awe;
Who would not love Thee, loving us so dearly?

Refrain

Yea, Lord, we greet Thee, born this happy morning;
Jesus, to Thee be glory given;
Word of the Father, now in flesh appearing.




IT CAME UPON A MIDNIGHT CLEAR 
Back to Top

Intro
It came upon the midnight clear, 
That glorious song of old.
From angels bending near the earth 
To touch their harps of gold.
Peace on the earth, goodwill to men,
From Heav'ns all gracious King.
The world in solemn stillness lay
To hear the angels sing. 

Still thro' the cloven skies they come, 
With peaceful wings unfurled.
And still their heav'nly music floats 
O'er all the weary world.
Above its sad and lowly plains
They bend on hov'ring wing.
And ever o'er it's bable sound 
The blessed angels sing. 

For lo, the days are hast'ning on,
By prophet bards fortold.
When with the ever-circling years 
Comes round the age of gold.
When peace shall over all the earth
It's ancient splendors fling.
And the whole world give back the song
Which now the angels sing.






T'WAS THE BIKE BEFORE CHRISTMAS
Back to Top
P R Van Buskirk 

Twas the night before Christmas, when all through our house
Not a creature was sleeping, not even my spouse.
The stockings were hung by the chimney with screws.
(If you can't find the nails, what else do you use:)

The children were restless, awake in their beds,
While visions of spanking them, danced in our heads. 
I worked in my bathrobe, My husband, in jeans,
Had gone down to the den with directions and dreams

To assemble a bike that came in small pieces
With deflated tires and fenders with creases.
Soon down in the den there arose such a clatter,
I sprang from my task to see what was the matter.

Away to my husband I flew like a flash;
He was shuffling through cardboard; his actions were rash. 
The bike on the rug, by this now flustered Dad
Soon gave me a hint as to why he was mad.

He needed a kickstand. It had to be near.
I shuffled some papers--he saw it appear!
We twisted the screws; we were lively and quick, 
And we soon knew assembly would be quite a trick.

Fast as eagles in flight the pieces were found,
And he whistled and shouted for parts all around:
"Now socket! Now pedal! Now tires! Now brakes!
On handles! On kickstand! On horn!....oh...but wait!"

In the top of the toolbox, he fumbled around;
"I need two more screws!" he said with a frown.
And like all good parents determined to please
When they meet with an obstacle late Christmas Eve,

We shouted and yelled some complaints to each other.
There was never more frustrated father and mother!
And then, in a panic, we heard on the stairs
The prancing and hopping of feet..."bout two pairs!

I opened the door and was turning around,
When kids burst from the hall with a leap and a bound.
They were dressed all in flannel, from their necks to their knees,
And their nightgowns were soiled with sugar and cheese!

Excuses poured forth from each pair of lips;
They stood in defiance with hands on their hips.
Their eyes were wide open, and each little child
Jumped when I yelled with a voice hardly mild.

They were frightened but cute, though much bigger than elves, 
And we laughed when we saw them, in spite of ourselves
A wink of the eye and a pat on the head
Soon let them both know hey had nothing to dread.

They saw not a thing but went straight to their beds
And we finished the bike and put bows on the sleds,
Then wheeling the bike by the tree (out of site),
My hubby announced we should call it a night.

He sprang to his bed, to the clock gave a whistle,
As time had flown by like a large Titan missle.
But I heard him exclaim as he turned out the light,
"Merry Christmas, my dear, but next year NO BIKE!"





RUDOLPH THE RED NOSED REINDEER 
Back to Top

You know Dasher and Dancer and Prancer and Vixen
Comet and cupid and Donner and Blixen 
But do you recall the most 
The famous reindeer of all 

Rudolph, the red-nosed reindeer 
Had a very shiny nose. 
And if you ever saw him, 
You would even say it glows. 

All of the other reindeer 
Used to laugh and call him names. 
They never let poor Rudolph 
Play 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! 

Then one foggy Christmas eve 
Santa came to say:

You'll go down in hist
You'll go down in hist

PRETTY PAPER

Intro
Crowded streets, busy feet hustle by him
Downtown shoppers, Christmas is nigh, 
There he sits all alone on the sidewalk,
Hoping that you won't pass him by. 

Should you stop, better not, much too busy.
You're in a hurry, my how time does fly. 
In the distance the ringing of laughter,
And in the midst of the laughter, he cries,

Pretty paper, pretty ribbons of blue, 
Wrap your presents to your darling from you. 
Pretty pencils to write "I love you". 
Pretty paper, pretty ribbons of blue. 

All together now, lets sing it again 

Crowded streets, busy feet hustle by him
Downtown shoppers, Christmas is nigh, 
There he sits all alone on the sidewalk,
Hoping that you won't pass him by, 

Should you stop, better not, much too busy.
You're in a hurry, my how time does fly. 
In the distance the ringing of laughter,
And in the midst of the laughter, he cries, 

Pretty paper, pretty ribbons of blue, 
Wrap your presents to your darling from you. 
Pretty pencils to write "I love you".

Holy Infant so tender and mild.
Sleep in heavenly peace,

Glories stream from heaven a far. 
Heav'nly hosts sing al-lelu-ia.
Christ, the Saviour, is born!
Christ, the Saviour, is born!

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

Rockin' around the Christmas tree

Meeting smile after smile.
And on ev'ry street corner you'll hear

It's Christmas time in the city
Ring-a-ling, hear them sing 
Soon it will be Christmas day 

Strings of street lights, Even stop lights, 
Blink a bright red and green 
As the shoppers rush home with their treasures.
Hear the snow crunch, see the kids bunch. 
This is Santa's big scene.
And above all this bustle, You'll hear 

Silver bells, silver bells
It's Christmas time in the city
Ring-a-ling, hear them sing
Soon it will be Christmas day

Angels we have heard on high, 
Singing sweetly o'er the plains, 
And the mountains in reply 
Echoing their joyous strain. 

Glorrrrr..........ia
In excelsis Deo. 

Glorrrrr..........ia
In excelsis Deo. 

Shepherds, why this jubilee? 
Why your joyous strains prolong? 
What the gladsome tidings be? 
Which inspire your heav'nly song. 

Glorrrrr..........ia

Come to Bethlehem and see 
Him whose birth the angels sing; 
Come, adore on bended knee 
Christ, the Lord, the new-born King. 

Glorrrrr..........ia

Glorrrrr..........ia

See him in a manger laid 
Whom the angels praise above;

While we raise our hearts in love.

FROSTY THE SNOWMAN
Back to Top

Intro

Frosty the Snowman
Was a jolly happy soul
With a corncob pipe and a button nose
And two eyes made out of coal

Frosty the Snowman
Is a fairytale they say
He was made of snow
But the children know
How he came to life one day

There must have been some magic
In that old silk hat they found
For when they placed it on his head
He began to dance around

Frosty the Snowman
Was alive as he could be 
And the children say 
He could laugh and play
Just the same as you and me

Frosty the Snowman
Knew the sun was hot that day
So he said let's run
And we'll have some fun
Now before I melt away

Down to the village
With a broomstick in his hand
Running here and there all around the square
Saying catch me if you can

He led them down the streets of town
Right to the traffic cop
And he only paused a moment when
He heard him holler stop

Frosty the Snowman
Had to hurry on his way
But he waved goodbye
Saying don't you cry 
I'll be back again some day

Thumpety thump thump
Thumpety thump thump
Look at Frosty go
Thumpety thump thump
Thumpety thump thump
Over the hills of snow



WHITE CHRISTMAS

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.

Hail the heaven-born Prince of Peace!
Hail the Sun of righteousness!

Risen with healing in His wings:

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,

WINTER WONDERLAND

Sleigh bells ring, are you listening
In the lane, snow is glistening
A beautiful sight, we're happy tonight
Walkin' in a winter wonderland

Gone away is the bluebird
Here to stay is a new bird
He sings a love song as we go along
Walkin' in a winter wonderland

In the meadow we can build a snowman
Then pretend that he is Parson Brown
He'll say are you married
We'll say, "No, Man,
But you can do the job when you're in town."

Later on we'll conspire
As we dream by the fire
To face unafraid
The plans that we made
Walkin' in a winter wonderland

In the meadow we can build a snowman
Then pretend that he is Parson Brown
He'll say are you married
We'll say, "No, Man.
But you can do the job when you're in town"

UNCLE SANTA
Back to Top
R Van Gorder

My childhood's great ambition
Was frustrated because
I couldn't get Aunt Mary
To marry Santa Claus. 

With Santa for an uncle, 
I reckoned to become
The envy of all other kids
Throughout all Christendom. 

A story-telling maiden aunt
And dearly loved was she--
A perfect mate for Santa,
But she she thought differently! 

She said, "He simply will not do.
His beard would make a mess
When he ate soup; and I will not 
Endure such sloppiness; 

And furthermore, if you don't stop
This wearisome pursuit,
I'll booby-trap the chimney--
I"ll fix that darned old coot!" 

So Santa's not my uncle
In fact, as I recall,
He's never shown himself to be
Much kin to me at all, 

But for the youngsters of today
I have some sound advice:
This coming crop of aunties
Think beards are very nice 

So one of you might snag him
For an uncle, if you try,
And I sincerely hope that you
Have better luck than I!

Here comes Santa Claus!

Hang your stockings and say your prayers,
'Cause Santa Claus comes tonight. 

Here comes Santa Claus!
Here comes Santa Claus!
Right down Santa Claus Lane!
He's got a bag that is filled with toys
for the boys and girls again. 

Hear those sleigh bells jingle jangle,
What a beautiful sight.
Jump in bed, cover up your head,
'Cause Santa Claus comes tonight. 

Santa Claus comes tonight.

Without a single stop, 
At the fireplace while we watch

Pop Pop Pop

There's a happy feeling nothing

It'll nearly be like a picture friend

THERE'S A SONG IN THE AIR

Holland - Harrington 

Intro
There's a song in the air
There's a star in the sky
There's a mother's deep prayer
And a Baby's low cry
And the star rains it's fire 
While the beautiful sing 
For the manger of Bethlehem 
Cradles a King

There's a tumult of joy
O'er the wonderful birth
For the Virgin's sweet boy 
Is the Lord of the earth.
Aye! the star rains it's fire 
While the beautiful sing 
For the manger of Bethlemen 
Cradles a King

In the light of that star
Lie the ages impearled
And that song from afar
Has swept over the world
Every hearth is aflame 
And beautiful sing
In the homes of the nations 
That Jesus is King

We rejoice in the light
And we echo the song
That comes down thur the night
From the heavenly throng
Aye! we shout to the 
Lovely evangel they bring
And we greet in His cradle
Your Savior and King





THE BIRTHDAY OF A KING

In the little village of Bethlehem, 
there lay a Child one day.
And the sky was bright with a Holy light 
O'er the place where Jesus lay 

Alleluia! 
O how the angels sang 
Alleluia! How it rang! 
And the sky was bright with a holy light. 
'Twas the birthday of a King

'Twas a humble birthplace, but oh, 
how much God gave to us that day. 
From the manger bed what a path has led, 
what a perfect holy way. 

Alleluia! 
O how the angels sang 
Alleluia! How it rang! 
And the sky was bright wil a holy light. 
'Twas the birthday of a King






WHAT BETTER TIME THAN CHRISTMAS

What better time than Christmas
to have all the friends and neighbors over
for a rousing good time.

Oscar Kat brought his banjo and Mr T, his guitar. 

Everyone has egged them on, 
so they are going to have a contest to see which is the best.

The Reverend Mr Goodbody is here to judge
the contest between Oscar Kat and Mr T 

Billie Ray and Junie just can't resist dancing and
Grandma is here to cheer. 

And Rufus doesn't care! 




ELVES
Back to Top

Did you ever see a pixie
Or a jolly little elf?
They're Santa's little helpers;
He told me so himself. 

Their suits are green as holly
With small peaked caps of red;
Their boots are tied with jingle bells
At least I've heard it said.
Now these happy little pixies
Think their work is just like play
When they're busy making toys
To give on Christmas Day.

They dress each doll with loving care
And comb and brush her curls,
Put polka dots on drums and sleds
For all good boys and girls. 

They paint red stripes on candy canes
And make cookies by the score;
Then they gather sprigs of mistletoe
To hang outside the door.

When at last it's Christmas Eve
And the ground is white with snow,
Santa's house is a merry place
As in and out they go.

They feed and groom the reindeer
And fill up Santa's sleigh;
They tuck him in real snugly
To speed him on his way. 

When you awake on Christmas morn
And you can hardly wait to see
All the toys that Santa's left you 
Underneath the tree, 

Would you like to see a pixie?
Then remember what I say
They'll be peeking in your window
On this happy Christmas Day. 





I HEARD THE BELLS ON CHRISTMAS DAY
Back to Top

Intro
I heard the bells on Christmas day.
Their old familiar carols play
And mild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.

I thought how as the day had come.
The belfries of all Christendom
Had rolled along, the unbroken song,
Of peace on earth, good will to men.

And in despair I bowed my head.
"There is no peace on earth," I said.
"For hate is strong, and mocks the song
Of peace on earth, good will to men."

Then pealed the bells more loud and deep.
"God is not dead, nor doth He sleep.
The wrong shall fail, the right prevail,
With peace on earth, good will to men."

Won't mean a thing, Dear, if
You're not here with me.

I'll have a blue Christmas, that's certain;
And when that blue, blue heartache starts hurting,
You'll be doing all right
With your Christmas of white,
But I'll have a blue, blue Christmas.

Again.....

I'll have a blue Christmas without you;
I'll be so blue thinking about you.

OH HOLY NIGHT
Back to Top


O holy night! The stars are brightly shining 
It is the night of the dear Saviors birth 

Long lay the world in sin and error pining 
Till He appeared and the soul felt it’s worth 

A thrill of hope the weary world rejoices 
For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn 

Fall on your knees! Oh hear the angel voices 
O night divine, O night - when Christ was born 
O night divine, O night - when Christ was born 

Led by the light of faith serenely beaming 
With glowing hearts by His cradle we stand 

So, led by light of a star sweetly gleaming 
Here came the wise men from the Orient land

The King of Kings lay thus in lowly manger
In all our trials born to be our friend 

He knows our need, to our weakness no stranger 
Behold your King, before Him lowly bend
Behold your King, your King, before Him lowly bend 

Truly He taught us to love one another 
His law is love and His Gospel is Peace 

Chains shall He break for the slave Is our brother
And in his name all oppression shall cease 

Sweet hymns of joy in grateful chorus we raise.
Let all within us praise His holy Name 

Christ is the Lord, then ever, ever praise we
His pow’r and glory evermore proclaim 
His pow’r and glory evermore proclaim

MARY, DID YOU KNOW?

Intro
Mary did you know that your baby boy 
would one day walk on water? 

Mary did you know that your baby boy 
would save our sons and daughters? 

Mary, did you know that your baby boy 
has come to make you new? 

This Child that you delivered 
will soon deliver you. 

Mary did you know that your baby boy 
will give sight to the blind man? 

Mary did you know that your baby boy 
would calm a storm with his hand? 

Mary did you know that your baby boy 
has walked where angels trod 

And when you kiss your baby 
you've kissed the face of God? 

Mary did you know the blind will see, 
the deaf will hear, 

The lame will leap, the dumb will speak 
the praises of The Lamb? 

Did you know that your baby boy 
is the Lord of all creation? 

Mary did you know that your baby boy 
will one day rule the nations? 

Mary did you know that your baby boy 
was Heaven's perfect lamb 

And the sleeping Child you're holding 
is the great I-Am? 






THE CHRISTMAS SONG

Intro
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 ev’ry mother’s Child is gonna spy 
To see if Reindeer really know how to fly 

And so, I’m offering this Simple phrase 
To kids from One to ninety-two 
Altho’ it’s been said many times, many ways 
"Merry Christmas to you"

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

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 we, we got upsot 
OHHHHHHH 

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

Now the ground is white, go at it while you're young 
Take the girls tonight, and sing this sleighing song; 
Just get a bob-tailed nag, two-forty for his speed 
Hitch him to an open sleigh and crack! you'll take the lead 
OHHHHHHH!

CHRISTMAS IN KILLARNEY

The holly green, the ivy green
The prettiest picture you've ever seen
Is Christmas in Killarney
With all of the folks at home

It's nice, you know, to kiss your beau
While cuddling under the mistletoe
And Santa Claus, of course, you know
Is one of the boys from home

The door is always open
The neighbors pay a call
And Father John before he's gone
Will bless the house and all

How grand it feels to click your heels
And join in the fun of the jigs and reels
I'm handing you no blarney

For all the Irish in the audience
And those who would like to be Irish,

THE TWELVE DAYS OF CHRISTMAS - ORIGINS
Back to Top

From 1558 until 1829, Roman Catholics in England were not permitted to practice their faith openly. Someone during that era wrote this carol as a catechism song for young Catholics. It has two levels of meaning: the surface meaning plus a hidden meaning known only to members of their church. Each element in the carol has a code word for a religious reality which the children could remember. 

The partridge in a pear tree was Jesus Christ. 

Two turtle doves were the Old and New Testaments.

Three French hens stood for faith, hope and love. 

The four calling birds were the four gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke & John. 

The five golden rings recalled the Torah or Law, the first five books of the Old Testament. 

The six geese a-laying stood for the six days of creation. 

Seven swans a-swimming represented the sevenfold gifts of the Holy Spirit: Prophesy, Serving, Teaching, Exhortation Contribution, Leadership, and Mercy. 

The eight maids a-milking were the eight beatitudes. 

Nine ladies dancing were the nine fruits of the Holy Spirit: Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness Gentleness, and Self Control. 

The ten lords a-leaping were the ten commandments. 

The eleven pipers piping stood for the eleven faithfu disciples. 

The twelve drummers drumming symbolized the twelve point of belief in the Apostles' Creed.

Huntingtion Hall
December 25th, 1836 

Dear Lord Gilbert,
How delighted I was to receive that dear little partridge in the pear tree. Whenever I look at him I shall remember you, but he does look rather lonely and cold. Maybe he would be better off with a muffler! Oh, thank you so much for such a thoughtful gift.


Yours Lovingly,


...................... Katherine Huntington








Huntingtion Hall
December 26th, 1836 

Dear Lord Gilbert,
The two turtledoves arrived safely and are cooing in the pear tree with the partridge.
My head gardener is building a new dove cote, as the old one is not quite suitable for them.
The partridge still looks lonely, though I cannot think why!



Yours Thankfully,


...................... Katherine Huntington








Huntingtion Hall
December 27th, 1836 

Dear Lord Gilbert,
How enchanting the three French hens are! Do they really come from France? The turtledoves are quite happy in their dove cote, and I think I will put the French hens with them.
My dear little partridge looks even more unhappy and I cannot think what to do.



Greatfully yours,


...................... Katherine Huntington








Huntingtion Hall
December 28th, 1836 

Dear Lord Gilbert,
How did you know I would like four calling birds. They simply delight me with their singing, although they can be rather noisy. They are quite friendly with my darling partridge, so I cannot imagine why he looks so sad. The French hens and the turtledoves are cooing in the dove cote. I wonder if I can introduce them to the calling birds?



Yours,


...................... Katherine Huntington








Huntingtion Hall
December 29th, 1836 

Dear Lord Gilbert,
Oh, I cannot express my thanks for those lovely golden rings. I cannot possibly think how you knew the sizes. They fit perfectly! They will match my new satin dress that I will wear tonight to Lady Wentworth's ball. This evening I will wear my sapphire chain to match the rings. I simply cannot stop looking at them. You are so thoughtful. My little partridge is shivering with cold. I think I'll make him a woolen suit. Thank you many times over.



Yours forever,


...................... Katherine Huntington








Huntingtion Hall
December 30th, 1836 

Dear Lord Gilbert,
Thank you for your unusual gift of six laying geese. My big problem is where to put them. They are, at the moment, ruining my new croquet lawn and hissing. Can you tell me what to do with their eggs? No one seems to want to buy them. I dare not keep them, for six geese are quite enough. The partridge is now warm in his new black and yellow suit.



Sincerely yours,


...................... Katherine Huntington








Huntingtion Hall
December 31st, 1836 

Dear Lord Gilbert,
We had to put the seven swans in my lily pond. They are a bit cramped there, and my lily pond is now an absolute wreck. Also I do not know what to feed them. I think my partridge is afraid of them, and that just will not do.



...................... Lady Katherine Huntington








Huntingtion Hall
January 1st, 1837 

Lord Gilbert,
Eight cows give so much milk that soon we shall have to put the swans to swim in it. The cows made such a noise last night that I could hardly sleep. I also now have to pay eight milking maids. My partridge has a cold from drinking so much milk.

Lord Gilbert,
Nine ladies dancing are quite outrageous. They make me quite ill.

Lord G. Faraday,
Your gift of ten lords a leaping is quite unwelcome. They are making me mad.

Huntingtion Hall
January 4st, 1837 

Lord Faraday,
One of the eleven pipers seems to be out of tune. What with their scraping, the cows mooing, pails clanking, honking, hissing and cooing, I have a slight headache. My partridge does not like it at all. 



...................... Hon. Lady Huntington








Huntingtion Hall
5th January 1837 

Dear Lord Faraday,
Lady Huntington has retired to her London home with the partridge. She is suffering from a nervous breakdown.
She requested me to return these gifts to you:
Twelve Drummers
Eleven Pipers
Ten Leaping Lords
Nine Dancing Ladies
Eight milking maids and their cows
Seven swans
Six laying geese
Four Calling birds
Three French hens
Two turtledoves and a pear tree
She wishes to keep the partridge and rings

AWAY IN A MANGER 2
Back to Top

Away in a manger, no crib for a bed,
The little Lord Jesus, lays down his sweet head.
The stars in the 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 Thee, Lord Jesus, look down from the sky 
And stay by my cradle til morning is nigh. 

Be near me, Lord Jesus, I ask Thee to stay 
Close by me forever, and love me, I pray. 
Bless all the dear children in thy tender care, 
And take us to heaven, to live with Thee there. 





I SAW MOMMY KISSING SANTA CLAUS
Back to Top


I saw Mommy kissing Santa Claus
Underneath the mistletoe last night.

She didn't see me creep
down the stairs to have a peep;

She thought that I was tucked
up in my bedroom fast asleep.

Then, I saw Mommy tickle Santa Claus
Underneath his beard so snowy white;

Oh, what a laugh it would have been
If Daddy had only seen
Mommy kissing Santa Claus last night.

THE FIRST NOEL
Back to Top
Traditional
First appeared in print 1883 

Intro
The first Noel the angel 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. 

They 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 

This star drew nigh to the northwest,
O'er Bethlem 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





GRANDMA GOT RUN OVER BY A REINDEER
Back to Top
by Elmo & Patsy

Intro

Grandma got run over by a reindeer
Walking home from our house Christmas Eve
You can say there's no such thing as Santa
But as for me and Grandpa we believe 

She'd been drinking too much eggnog
And we begged her not to go
But she forgot her medication
And she staggered out the door into the snow

When we found her Christmas morning
At the scene of the attack
She had hoofprints on her forehead
And incrimimating Claus marks on her back 

Grandma got run over by a reindeer
Walking home from our house Christmas Eve
You can say there's no such thing as Santa
But as for me and Grandpa we believe 

Now we're all so proud of Grandpa
He's been taking this so well
See him in there watching football
Drinking beer and playing cards with Cousin Mel 

It's not Christmas without Grandma
All the family's dressed in black
And we just can't help but wonder
Should we open up her gifts or send them back? 

Grandma got run over by a reindeer
Walking home from our house Christmas Eve
You can say there's no such thing as Santa
But as for me and Grandpa we believe 

Now the goose is on the table
And the pudding made of fig
And the blue and silver candles
That would just have matched the hair in Grandma's wig

I've warned all my friends and neighbors
Better watch out for yourselves
They should never give a license
To a man who drives a sleigh and plays with elves.

Grandma got run over by a reindeer
Walking home from our house Christmas Eve
You can say there's no such thing as Santa
But as for me and Grandpa we believe

Grandma got run over by a reindeer
Walking home from our house Christmas Eve
You can say there's no such thing as Santa
But as for me and Grandpa we believe!

It's a marshmellow world in the winter, 
When the snow comes a tumblin' down, 
It's the time for play, it's a whipped cream day 
I wait for it the whole year 'round. 

Those are marshmellow clouds being friendly 
In the arms of the evergreen trees 
And the sun is red, like a pumpkin head 
It's shining so your nose won't freeze. 

The world is your snowball, see how it grows; 
That's how it goes whenever it snows 
The world is your snowball just for a song 
Get out and roll it along. 

It's a yum-yummy world made for sweethearts 
Take a walk with your favorite girl 
It's a sugar date, what if spring is late 
In winter it's a marshmellow world. 

If you love snow, as I do,
Sing it again 

It's a marshmellow world in the winter, 
When the snow comes a tumblin' down, 
It's the time for play, it's a whipped cream day 
I wait for it the whole year 'round. 

Those are marshmellow clouds being friendly 
In the arms of the evergreen trees 
And the sun is red, like a pumpkin head 
It's shining so your nose won't freeze.

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas,
Ev'rywhere you go;
Take a look in the five-and-ten,
Glistening once again
With candy canes and silver lanes aglow. 

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas,
Toys in ev'ry store,
But the prettiest sight to see
Is the holly that will be
On your own front door. 

A pair of hopalong boots
And a pistol that shoots
Is the wish of Barney and Ben;
Dolls that will talk
And will go for a walk
Is the hope of Janice and Jen;
And Mom and Dad can hardly wait
for school to start again.
And Mom and Dad can hardly wait
for school to start again. 

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas;
Soon the bells will start,
And the thing that will make them ring
Is the carol that you sing
Right within your heart
Within your heart. 




OH LITTLE TOWN OF BETHLEHEM

Intro
Oh, little town of Bethlehem, 
How still we see thee lie.
Above thy deep and dreamless sleep
The silent stars go by.
Yet in they dark streets shineth,
The everlasting Light.
The hope and fears of all the years 
Are met in thee tonight.


For Christ is born of Mary, 
And gathered all above, 
While mortals sleep the angels keep 
Their watch of wondering love. 
O morning stars, together. 
Proclaim the holy birth, 
And praises sing to God the King, 
And peace to men on earth 

How silently, how silently 
The wonderous gift is giv'n 
So God imparts to human hearts 
The blessings of His heav'n
No ear may hear His coming
But in this world of sin,
Where meek souls will receive Him still, 
The dear Christ enters in. 

O holy Child of Bethlehem, 
Descend to us, we pray 
Cast out our sin and enter in,
Be born in us today. 
We hear the Christmas angels 
The great glad tiding tell, 
O come to us, abide with us, 
Our Lord Emmanuel

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 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
That's the jingle bell
That's the jingle bell rock

IT WAS ALMOST CHRISTMAS TIME
Back to Top

It was almost Christmas Time,
And There I stood in another line,
Trying to buy that last gift or two,
Not really in the Christmas mood.

Standing right in front of me,
Was a little boy waiting anxiously,
Pacing round like little boys do,
And in his hands he held a pair of shoes,

And his clothes were worn and old
He was dirty from head to toe,
But when it came the time to pay,
I couldn't believe what I heard him say,

Sir I want to buy these shoes,
For my Momma please,
It's Christmas eve and these shoes are just her size,
Could you hurry Sir, Daddy says there's not much time,

You see, she's been sick for quite a while,
And I know these shoes will make her smile,
And I want her to look beautiful,
If Momma meets Jesus tonight.

He counted pennies for what seamed like years,
The cashier said, Son there's not enough here,
He searched his pockets franticly,
Then he turned and he looked at me.

He said, Momma made Christmas good at our house,
Most years she just did without, 
Tell me sir, What am I going to do?
Somehow I've got to buy her these Christmas shoes.

So, I laid the money down,
I just had to help him out,
And I'll never forget the look on his face,
When He said, Momma's gonna look so great.

Sir I want to buy these shoes,
For my Momma Please,
It's Christmas Eve and these shoes are just her size,
Could you hurry Sir, Daddy says there's not much time.

You see, she's been sick for quite a while,
And I know these shoes will make her smile,
And I want her to look beautiful,
If Momma meets Jesus tonight.

I knew I caught a glimpse of heavens Love,
As he thanked me and ran out,
I knew that God had sent that little boy,
To remind me what Christmas is all about.

Sir I want to buy these shoes,
For my Momma Please,
It's Christmas Eve and these shoes are just her size,
Could you hurry Sir, Daddy says there's not much time.

You see, she's been sick for quite a while,
And I know these shoes will make her smile,
And I want her to look beautiful,
If Momma meets Jesus tonight.
