Winter Wonderland

Over the ground lies a mantle of white
A heaven of diamonds shine down
through the night
Two hearts are thrillin' in spite of the
chill in weather.
Love knows no season
Love knows no clime
Romance can blossom any old time
Here in the open
We're walkin' and hopin' together

 

Sleigh bells ring, are you list’nin’!
In the lane snow is glist’nin’,

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 Bleak Midwinter

In the bleak midwinter, frosty wind made moan,

earth stood hard as iron, water like a stone;

snow had fallen, snow on snow, snow on snow,

in the bleak midwinter, long ago.

 

Heaven cannot hold him, nor earth sustain;

heaven and earth shall flee away when he comes to reign.

In the bleak midwinter a stable place sufficed

the Lord God Almighty, Jesus Christ.

 

What can I give him, poor as I am?

If I were a shepherd, I would bring a lamb; If I were a wise man, I would do my part. Yet what can I give him, I would give my heart.

 

Jingle Bell Rock

Jingle-bell, jingle-bell, jingle-bell rock,
Jingle-bell swing and jingle-bell 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 mingle in a jinglin’ beat,
That’s the jingle-bell, that’s the jingle-bell,
That’s the jingle-bell rock!

 

Let it go

The snow glows white on the mountain tonight
Not a footprint to be seen
A kingdom of isolation,
And it looks like I'm the queen.
The wind is howling like this swirling storm inside,
Couldn't keep it in, heaven knows I tried!
Don't let them in, don't let them see
Be the good girl you always have to be
Conceal, don't feel, don't let them know
Well, now they know!

Let it go, let it go
Can't hold it back anymore
Let it go, let it go
Turn away and slam the door!
I don't care
What they're going to say
Let the storm rage on,
The cold never bothered me anyway!

It's funny how some distance
Makes ev’rything seem small
And the fears that once controlled me
Can't get to me at all!
It's time to see what I can do
To test the limits and break through
No right, no wrong, no rules for me, I'm free!

Let it go, let it go
I am one with the wind and sky
Let it go, let it go
You'll never see me cry!
Here I stand
And here I'll stay
Let the storm rage on!

My power flurries through the air into the ground
My soul is spiraling in frozen fractals all around
And one thought crystallises like an icy blast
I'm never going back,
The past is in the past.

Let it go, let it go
And I'll rise like the break of dawn
Let it go, let it go
That perfect girl is gone!
Here I stand
In the light of day
Let the storm rage on,
The cold never bothered me anyway!

 

Little Donkey

Little donkey, little donkey
On the dusty road
Got to keep on plodding onwards
With your precious load.

Been a long time, little donkey
Through the winter’s night
Don’t give up now, little donkey
Bethlehem’s in sight.

Ring out those bells tonight
Bethlehem, Bethlehem
Follow that star tonight
Bethlehem, Bethlehem.

Little donkey, little donkey
Had a heavy day
Little donkey
Carry Mary safely on her way.

 

Little donkey, little donkey
Journey’s end is near
There are wise men waiting for a
Sign to bring them here.

Do not falter, little donkey
There’s a star ahead
It will guide you, little donkey
To a cattle shed.

Ring out those bells tonight
Bethlehem, Bethlehem
Follow that star tonight
Bethlehem, Bethlehem

Little donkey, little donkey
Had a heavy day
Little donkey
Carry Mary safely on her way.

Little donkey
Carry Mary safely on her way.
Mmmmmmm

 

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 ev’ry Christmas card I write.
May your days be merry and bright,
And may all your Christmases be white.
Repeat

 

Auld Lang Syne

Should auld

acquaintance be forgot,
And never brought to mind?
Should auld

acquaintance be forgot,
And days of auld lang syne?

 

For auld lang syne, my dear,
For auld lang syne.
We’ll take a cup o’ kindness yet
For auld lang syne.

And here’s a hand, my trusty friend,
And here’s a hand o’ thine;
We’ll take a cup o’ kindness yet
For auld lang syne

For auld lang syne, my dear,
For auld lang syne.
We’ll take a cup o’ kindness yet
For auld lang syne.

 

I wish it could be Christmas everyday

When the snowman brings the snow, well he just might like to know,

he’s put a great big smile on somebody’s face.

If you jump into your bed
Quickly cover up your head
Don't you lock the doors
You know that sweet Santa Claus is on the way

Chorus: Oh well, I wish it could be Christmas everyday
When the kids start singing and the band begins to play
Oh, I wish it could be Christmas everyday
So let the bells ring out for Christmas


When you're skating in the park
If the storm cloud paints it dark
Then your rosy cheeks gonna light
My merry way Now the frosticals appeared
And they've frozen up my beard
And so we'll lie by the fire
Till the sleep simply melts them all away


Chorus: Oh well...


When the snowman brings the snow
Oh, well he just might like to know
He's put a great big smile
On somebody's face
So if Santa brings the sleigh
All along the Milky Way
I'll sign my name on the rooftop in the snow
Then he may decide to stay
Chorus: Oh well…
Why don't you give your love for Christmas?

It was on a Starry Night

It was on a starry night when the hills were bright
Earth lay sleeping, sleeping calm and still.
Then in a cattle shed, in a manger bed
a boy was born, king of all the world.

 

Chorus: And all the angels sang for him, the bells of heaven rang for him
for a boy was born, king of all the world.

And all the angels sang for him, the bells of heaven rang for him
for a boy was born, king of all the world.


Soon the shepherds came that way where the baby lay
and were kneeling, kneeling by his side.
And their hearts believed again for the peace of men,
for a boy was born, king of all the world.

Chorus: And all...

 

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.

Chorus: Good tidings we bring to you and your kin;
We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Now, bring us some figgy pudding;
Now, bring us some figgy pudding;
Now, bring us some figgy pudding and bring some out here.

 

Chorus: Good tidings ...

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 some out here.

Chorus: Good tidings …
