LYRICS

It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas – Bing Crosby

[Verse 1]

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas

Everywhere you go

Take a look in the five and ten, glistening once again

With candy canes and silver lanes aglow

[Verse 2]

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas (Christmas)

Toys in every store

But the prettiest sight to see is the holly that will be

On your own front door

[Refrain]

A pair of Hop-a-long 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

[Verse 3]

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas

Everywhere you go

There’s a tree in the Grand Hotel, one in the park as well

The sturdy kind that doesn’t mind the snow

[Verse 4]

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas

Soon the bells will start

And the thing that will make ’em ring is the carol that you sing

Right within your heart

[Instrumental Break]

[Verse 2]

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas

Toys in every store

But the prettiest sight to see is the holly that will be

On your own front door

It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year – Andy Williams

It’s the most wonderful time of the year

With the kids jingle belling

And everyone telling you “be of good cheer”

It’s the most wonderful time of the year

 

It’s the hap-happiest season of all

With those holiday greetings

And gay happy meetings when friends come to call

It’s the hap-happiest season of all

 

There’ll be parties for hosting

Marshmallows for toasting

And caroling out in the snow

There’ll be scary ghost stories

And tales of the glories

Of Christmases long, long ago

 

It’s the most wonderful time of the year

There’ll be much mistletoeing

And hearts will be glowing when loved ones are near

It’s the most wonderful time of the year

 

There’ll be parties for hosting

Marshmallows for toasting

And caroling out in the snow

There’ll be scary ghost stories

And tales of the glories

Of Christmases long, long ago

 

It’s the most wonderful time of the year

There’ll be much mistletoeing

And hearts will be glowing when loved ones are near

It’s the most wonderful time

It’s the most wonderful time

It’s the most wonderful time

It’s the most wonderful time of the year

The Christmas Song – Nat King Cole

[Verse]

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

 

[Bridge]

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

 

[Chorus]

And so I’m offering this simple phrase

To kids from one to 92

Although it’s been said many times, many ways

Merry Christmas to you

 

[Piano Solo]

 

[Chorus]

And so I’m offering this simple phrase

To kids from one to 92

Although it’s been said many times, many ways

Merry Christmas to you

Jingle Bell Rock – Brenda Lee

Jingle bell, Jingle bell, Jingle bell rock

Jingle bells swing and Jingle bells ring

Snowing and blowing up bushels of fun

Now the Jingle hop has begun

 

Jingle bell, Jingle bell, Jingle bell rock

Jingle bells chime in Jingle bell time

Dancing and prancing 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 it’s a swell time

To go gliding in a one-horse sleigh

Giddy up Jingle horse, pick up your feet

Jingle around the clock

Mix and mingle in a Jingle and beat

That’s the Jingle bell rock

 

What a bright time, it’s the right time

To rock the night away

 

Jingle bell time it’s a swell time

To go gliding in a one-horse sleigh

Giddy up Jingle horse, pick up those feet

Jingle around the clock

Mix and mingle in a Jingle and beat

That’s the Jingle bell

That’s the Jingle bell

That’s the Jingle bell rock

Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree – Brenda Lee

Rockin’ around the Christmas tree
At the Christmas party hop
Mistletoe hung where you can see
Every couple tries to stop

Rockin’ around the Christmas tree
Let the Christmas spirit ring
Later we’ll have some pumpkin pie
And we’ll do some caroling

You will get a sentimental feeling when you hear
Voices singing, let’s be jolly
Deck the halls with boughs of holly

Rockin’ around the Christmas tree
Have a happy holiday
Everyone dancin’ merrily
In the new old-fashioned way

You will get a sentimental feeling when you hear
Voices singing, let’s be jolly
Deck the halls with boughs of holly

Rockin’ around the Christmas tree
Have a happy holiday
Everyone dancin’ merrily
In the new old-fashioned way

I’m dreaming of a white Christmas
Just like the ones I used to know (Ooo)
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 (Ooo)
“May your days be merry and bright
And may all your Christmases be white”

Let it Snow! – Dean Martin

[Verse 1]
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

[Verse 2]
Man, it doesn’t show signs of stopping
And I’ve brought me some corn for popping
The lights are turned way down low
Let it snow, let it snow

[Bridge]
When we 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

[Verse 3]
And the fire is slowly dying
And, my dear, we’re still goodbyeing
But as long as you love me so
Let it snow, let it snow, and snow

[Bridge]
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

[Verse 4]
Oh, the fire is slowly dying
And, my dear, we’re still goodbyeing
But as long as you love me so
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow

Here Comes Santa Claus – Gene Autry

[Verse 1]
Here comes Santa Claus, here comes Santa Claus, right down Santa Claus Lane
Vixen and Blitzen and all his reindeers pulling on the reins
Bells are ringing, children singing, all is merry and bright
So hang your stockings and say your prayers, ’cause Santa Claus comes tonight

[Verse 2]
Here comes Santa Claus, here comes Santa Claus, right down Santa Claus Lane
He’s got a bag that’s filled with toys for boys and girls again
Hear those sleigh bells jingle jangle, oh what a beautiful sight
So jump in bed and cover your head, ’cause Santa Claus comes tonight

[Verse 3]
Here comes Santa Claus, here comes Santa Claus, right down Santa Claus Lane
He doesn’t care if you’re rich or poor, he loves you just the same
Santa Claus knows we’re all God’s children, that makes everything right
So fill your hearts with Christmas cheer, ’cause Santa Claus comes tonight

[Verse 4]
Here comes Santa Claus, here comes Santa Claus, right down Santa Claus Lane
He’ll come around when chimes ring out that it’s Christmas morn’ again
Peace on Earth will come to all if we just follow the light
So let’s give thanks to the lord above, ’cause Santa Claus comes tonight

[Verse 1]
Here comes Santa Claus, here comes Santa Claus, right down Santa Claus Lane
Vixen and Blitzen and all his reindeers pulling on the reins
Bells are ringing, children singing, all is merry and bright

Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer – Gene Autry

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 how the reindeer loved him as they shouted out with glee
“Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer, you’ll go down in history”

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 how the reindeer loved him as they shouted out with glee
“Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer, you’ll go down in history”

Frosty the Snowman – Gene Autry

Frosty the snowman was a jolly happy soul
With a corn cob pipe and a button nose
And two eyes made out of coal

Frosty the snowman is a fairy tale, they say
He was made of snow, but the children know
That 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 as live 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 have some fun, now
Before I melt away.’

Down to the village with a broom stick 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
He only paused a moment when they 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, someday.’

Frosty the snowman was as live 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 have some fun, now
Before I melt away.’

You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch – Thurl Ravenscroft

[Verse 1]
You’re a mean one, Mr. Grinch
You really are a heel
You’re as cuddly as a cactus
You’re as charming as an eel, Mr. Grinch
You’re a bad banana
With a greasy black peel

[Verse 2]
You’re a monster, Mr. Grinch
Your heart’s an empty hole
Your brain is full of spiders
You’ve got garlic in your soul, Mr. Grinch
I wouldn’t touch you
With a thirty-nine-and-a-half foot pole

[Verse 3]
You’re a vile one, Mr. Grinch
You have termites in your smile
You have all the tender sweetness
Of a seasick crocodile, Mr. Grinch
Given the choice between the two of you
I’d take the seasick crocodile

[Verse 4]
You’re a foul one, Mr. Grinch
You’re a nasty, wasty skunk
Your heart is full of unwashed socks
Your soul is full of gunk, Mr. Grinch
The three words that best describe you
Are as follows, and I quote:
“Stink. Stank. Stunk.”

[Verse 5]
You’re a rotter, Mr. Grinch
You’re the king of sinful sots
Your heart’s a dead tomato splotched
With moldy purple spots, Mr. Grinch
Your soul is an appalling dump heap
Overflowing with the most disgraceful assortment
Of deplorable rubbish imaginable
Mangled up in tangled-up knots
[Verse 6]
You nauseate me, Mr. Grinch
With a nauseous super-naus
You’re a crooked, jerky jockey
And you drive a crooked hoss, Mr. Grinch
You’re a three-decker sauerkraut and toadstool sandwich
With arsenic sauce

Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer – Elmo & Patsy

[Chorus]
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

[Verse 1]
She’d been drinkin’ too much eggnog
And we’d begged her not to go
But she forgot her medication
And she staggered out the door into the snow
When we found her Christmas mornin’
At the scene of the attack
She had hoof prints on her forehead
And incriminatin’ hoof marks on her back

[Chorus]
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
(Lord, we believe)

[Verse 2]
Now we’re all so proud of Grandpa
He’s been takin’ this so well
See him in there watchin’ football
Drinkin beer and playin’ 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?
(send them back)

[Chorus]
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
(Lord, we believe)

[Verse 3]
Now the goose is on the table
And the pudding made of fig
And a blue and silver candle
That would have just 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.”

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

Sing it, Grandpa!
Grandma got run over by a reindeer
Walking home from our house Christmas Eve
(Minding her own business)
You can say there’s no such thing as Santa
(What do you mean there’s no Santa?)
But as for me and Grandpa, we believe
Sing it, Grandpa!

[Outro]
Oh
As for me and Grandpa, we believe
(We believe in Santa Claus)

[Intro]
Wow! Mommy’s kissing Santa Claus!

[Verse 1]
I saw mommy kissing Santa Claus (kissing, 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, tickle (tickle, 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

And I’m gonna tell my dad

Underneath his beard so snowy white

Mommy kissing Santa Claus last night

You just gotta believe me! (I told you, I told you)

 

Blue Christmas – Elvis Presley

[Verse 1]
I’ll have a blue Christmas without you
(Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh)

Decorations of red on a green Christmas tree
(Ahh, ahh)
Won’t be the same dear, if you’re not here with me
(Ooh)

[Verse 2]
And when those blue snowflakes start fallin’
(Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh)
That’s when those blue memories start callin’

(Ahh, ahh)
But I’ll have a blue, blue, blue, blue Christmas

[Bridge]

Silver Bells – Dean Martin

[Verse 1]
City sidewalks, busy sidewalks, dressed in holiday style
In the air there’s a feeling of Christmas
Children laughing, people passing, meeting smile after smile
And on every street corner you hear

[Chorus]
Silver bells (Silver bells), silver bells (Silver bells)
It’s Christmas time in the city
Ring-a-ling (Ring-a-ling), hear them ring (Hear them ring)
Soon it’ll be Christmas Day

[Verse 2]
(Strings of street lights, even stop lights, blink a bright red and green)
As the shoppers rush home with their treasures
(Hear the snow crush, see the kids bunch, this is Santa’s big scene)
And above all this bustle you hear

[Outro]
(Silver bells) Silver bells, (Silver bells) silver bells
It’s Christmas time in the city
Ring-a-ling (Ring-a-ling), hear them ring (Hear them ring)
Soon it’ll be Christmas Day
Silver bells, silver bells, silver, silver bells

We Need a Little Christmas – Johnny Mathis

Haul out the holly
Put up the tree before my spirit falls again
Fill up the stocking
I may be rushing things but deck the halls again now

For we need a little Christmas right this very minute
Candles in the window, carols at the spinet
Yes we need a little Christmas right this very minute
Hasn’t snowed a single flurry, but Santa dear we’re in a hurry

Climb down the chimney
Turn on the brightest string of lights I’ve ever seen
Slice up the fruit cake
It’s time we’ve hung some tinsel on the evergreen bough

For I’ve grown a little leaner, grown a little colder
Grown a little sadder, grown a little older
And I need a little angel sitting on my shoulder
Need a little Christmas now

For we need a little music, need a little laughter
Need a little singing ringing through the rafter
And we need a little snappy, happy ever after
We need a little Christmas now!

 

Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas – Sam Smith

Have yourself a merry little Christmas
Let your heart be light
From now on
Your troubles will be out of sight

Have yourself a merry little Christmas
Make the Yule-tide gay
From now on
Your troubles will be miles away

Here we are as in olden days
Happy golden days of yore
Faithful friends who I dear to us
They gather near to us once more

Through the years
We’ll always be together
If the Fates allow
Hang a shining star upon the highest bough

So have yourself a merry little Christmas
Have yourself a merry little Christmas
So have yourself a merry little Christmas now

I’ll Be Home for Christmas – Michael Bublé

I’m dreaming tonight of a place I love
Even more than I usually do
And although I know it’s a long road back
I promise you

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

Christmas eve will find me
Where the love light breathes
I’ll be home for Christmas
If only in my dreams

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 you
Where the love light breathes
I’ll be home for Christmas
If only in my dreams

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

Do You Hear What I Hear? – Whitney Houston

[Verse 1]
Do you hear what I hear?
Said the little lamb to the shepherd boy
Do you hear what I hear? (Hear what I hear)
Ringing through the night, shepherd boy
Do you hear what I hear (Hear what I hear)
A song, a song, high above the trees
With a voice as big as the sea
With a voice as big as the sea

[Verse 2]
Said the shepherd boy to the mighty king
Do you know what I know (Know what I know)
In your palace warm, mighty king
Do you know what I know (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, oh yeah, oh

[Verse 3]
Said the king to the people everywhere, yeah
Listen to what I say (To what I say)
Pray for peace (Peace), people everywhere
Listen to what I say (To what I say)
Oh, a child, a child, sleeping in the night
He will bring us goodness and light, yes He will
He will bring us goodness and light, yes He will

[Outro]
I know He will, oh, yes He will
(Do you hear what I hear?)
Do you hear? Do you hear?
(Do you hear what I hear?)
Do you hear? Do you know?
(Do you hear what I hear?)
What I know, what I hear
(Do you hear what I hear?)
What I hear, do you know, do you know?
(Do you hear what I hear?)
Do you know, do you know?

 

All I Want for Christmas is You – Mariah Carey

[Intro]
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, yeah

[Verse 1]
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 (Ah)
Santa Claus won’t make me happy
With a toy on Christmas Day

[Chorus]
I just want you for my own (Ooh)
More than you could ever know (Ooh)
Make my wish come true
All I want for Christmas is you
You, baby

[Verse 2]
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 (Ah)
I won’t even stay awake to
Hear those magic reindeer click

[Chorus]
‘Cause I just want you here tonight (Ooh)
Holding on to me so tight (Ooh)
What more can I do?
Oh baby, all I want for Christmas is you
You, baby

[Bridge]
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 (Oh)
Santa, won’t you bring me the one I really need? (Yeah, oh, oh)
Won’t you please bring my baby to me?

[Verse 3]
Oh, I don’t want a lot for Christmas
This is all I’m asking for (Ah)
I just wanna see my baby
Standing right outside my door

[Chorus]
Oh, I just want you for my own (Ooh)
More than you could ever know (Ooh)
Make my wish come true
Oh baby, all I want for Christmas is you

[Outro]
You, baby
All I want for Christmas is you, baby (You)
All I want for Christmas is you, baby (Ah, oh, ah, oh)
All I want for Christmas is you, baby (You)
All I want for Christmas is you, baby (All I really want, baby, ooh)
All I want for Christmas is you, baby (All I want, all I really want is you)
