Lyrics WELL LOOK HERE JACK,
THERE'S SOMETHING
DOWN THE TRACK,
HE'S GOT RHYTHM
IN HIS FEET
BUT NOTHING
IN THE SACK;
THE BOOGIE WOOGIE SANTA CLAUS,
BOOGIE WOOGIE SANTA CLAUS,
BOOGIE WOOGIE SANTA
COMES TO TOWN
EVERY CHRISTMAS DAY.

WELL HE LIVES UP IN A MOUNTAIN
LIKE A HERMIT IN THE CAVE,
HE NEVER HAD A HAIRCUT,
HE NEVER TOOK A SHAVE;
THE BOOGIE WOOGIE SANTA CLAUS,
BOOGIE WOOGIE SANTA CLAUS,
BOOGIE WOOGIE SANTA
COMES THIS TIME
EVERY CHRISTMAS DAY.

WELL IT'S ROCK ROCK ROCK,
MISTER SANTA,
JUMP JUMP JUMP,
MISTER SANTA
WELL THE BOOGIE WOOGIE SANTA
WILL BOOGIE ALL YOUR BLUES AWAY.

GOT NO PRESENTS
FOR YOUR TREE,
NO CANDY
FOR YOUR SOCKS,
WHEN HE STARTS TO BOOGIE,
THE WHOLE TOWN ROCKS.

MAMA GET YOUR HAT,
PUT YOUR BEST DRESS ON,
WE'RE GONNA JUMP FOR JOY
ON THE CHRISTMAS MORN;
THE BOOGIE WOOGIE SANTA CLAUS,
BOOGIE WOOGIE SANTA CLAUS,
BOOGIE WOOGIE SANTA BOOGIE ALL YOUR BLUES AWAY

WELL IT'S ROCK ROCK ROCK,
MISTER SANTA,
JUMP JUMP JUMP,
MISTER SANTA CLAUS,
WELL THE BOOGIE WOOGIE SANTA
WILL BOOGIE ALL YOUR BLUES AWAY.

Lyrics NEIGHBORS,
ON THIS FROSTY TIDE,
THE WIND IS BLOWING,
THERE'S SNOW BESIDE.
SO LET US SIT
BY YOUR FIRESIDE,
AND JOY SHALL BE YOURS
IN THE MORNING.

HERE WE STAND
IN COLD AND SLEET,
BLOWING FINGERS
AND STAMPING FEET,
YOU BY THE FIRE
AND WE IN THE STREET,
AND BIDDING YOU JOY
IN THE MORNING.

A STAR FROM AFAR
HAS LED US ON
AND GAVE US LIGHT
BEFORE THE DAWN.
FOR BLISS TOMORROW
AND JOY ANON,
AND JOY
FOR EVERY MORNING.

GOOD JOSEPH
SAW ACROSS THE SNOW
THE STAR
ABOVE THE MANGER LOW.
HE MADE A BED
FOR HIS MARY,
SO THAT JOY
WOULD BE HERS
IN THE MORNING.

AND IN THE STABLE
WHERE THEY DID DWELL,
WHO WERE THE FIRST
TO SING NOEL?
DONKEY AND COW,
FOR IT BEFELL
THAT JOY WOULD BE THEIRS
IN THE MORNING.

SO, NEIGHBORS,
ON THIS FROSTY TIDE,
THE WIND IS BLOWING,
THERE'S SNOW BESIDE.
SO LET US SIT
BY YOUR FIRESIDE,
AND JOY WILL BE YOURS
IN THE MORNING.

Lyrics verse:
CHRISTMAS IN KILLARNEY
IS WONDERFUL TO SEE,
LISTEN TO MY STORY
AND I'LL TAKE YOU BACK
WITH ME.

Chorus:
THE HOLLY GREEN,
THE IVY GREEN,
THE PRETTIEST PICTURE
YOU'VE EVER SEEN
IS CHRISTMAS IN KILLARNEY
WTH ALL OF THE FOLKS
AT HOME.
IT'S NICE YOU KNOW,
TO KISS YOUR BEAU
WHILE CUDDLING
UNDER THE MISTLETOE,
AND SANTA CLAUS,
YOU KNOW OF COURSE,
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,
THE LIKES YOU'VE NEVER KNOWN,
IS CHRISTMAS IN KILLARNEY
WITH ALL OF THE FOLKS
AT HOME.

Lyrics I HEAR SLEIGH BELLS RINGING,
BUT I HAVEN'T HEARD
A WORD FROM YOU
IN YEARS.
I HEAR SLEIGH BELLS RINGING,
BUT I HAVEN'T HEARD
A WORD FROM YOU
IN YEARS;
OH, I HEAR A CHOIR SINGING
AND I'M SITTING HERE CRYING
CHRISTMAS TEARS.

EVERYBODY SINGING MERRY CHRISTMAS
AS THEY WATCH
THE STARRY SKIES
FILLED WITH REINDEERS,
EVERYBODY SINGING MERRY CHRISTMAS
AS THEY WATCH
THE STARRY SKIES
FILLED WITH REINDEERS;
OH, I'M SMILING
ON THE OUTSIDE
BUT ON THE INSIDE
I'M CRYING
CHRISTMAS TEARS.

THOUGH YOU'VE BEEN GONE
FOR A LONG LONG TIME,
ITS CHRISTMAS
AND I CANT GET YOU
OFF MY MIND;
IT SEEMS
SINCE YOU'VE BEEN GONE
LIKE A HUNDRED YEARS OR MORE,
BUT IF YOU WERE HERE
WITH ME
I COULD HANG
CHRISTMAS ON MY DOOR.

I NEED YOU DARLING
TO HOLD ME TIGHT,
I NEED YOU DEAR
ON THIS CHRISTMAS NIGHT.
AS I SIT AND THINK
OF THE LONELY YEARS,
I CAN'T HELP BUT CRY
CHRISTMAS TEARS.

Lyrics REMEMBER THE CHRISTMAS MORNING
LONG AGO,
THE FROSTED GLASS,
THE DANCING SNOW,
THE HAPPY TIME?
REMEMBER THE PAINTED HORSE,
THE CAROUSEL,
THE CHOCOLATE KISS,
THE CARAMEL,
THE HAPPY TIME?
REMEMBER THE PALE PINK SKY,
YOUR FIRST EASTER HAT?
AND IF YOU SHOULD ASK ME WHY,
THE REASON I ASK YOU THIS
IS THAT
I WANT TO REMEMBER YOU
REMEMBERING
THE HAPPY TIME.

REMEMBER THE DAY
YOU FOUND THE DOLLAR BILL,
OR ROLLER SKATING
DOWN THE HILL,
THE HAPPY TIME?
REMEMBER THE COMPLIMENT
YOU ONCE RECEIVED,
THE LIE YOU TOLD
THEY ALL BELIEVED,
THE HAPPY TIME?
REMEMBER YOUR FIRST SCHOOL PLAY,
THE SOUND OF APPLAUSE?
WHY DO I GO ON THIS WAY?
I'M ONLY REMINDING YOU
BECAUSE
I WANT TO REMEMBER YOU
REMEMBERING
THE HAPPY TIME.

REMEMBER THE DEAREST LOVE
YOU EVER KNEW,
THE DAY SHE SAID,
HELLO TO YOU.
THE HAPPY TIME?
REMEMBER THE TULIP TREES
YOU WALKED AMONG,
THE GAME WAS OLD,
THE PLAYER YOUNG,
THE HAPPY TIME?
REMEMBER A LONG DEEP SIGH,
A TENTATIVE KISS?
AND IF
YOU SHOULD ASK ME WHY,
THE REASON I ASK YOU
THAT IS THIS:
I'M LONGING TO SEE YOU SMILE
AND HEAR YOU LAUGH
SO I CAN HAVE THE PHOTOGRAPH
AND REMEMBER YOU.
REMEMBERING
THE HAPPY TIME.

Lyrics 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 COUNT ON ME.
PLEASE HAVE SNOW
AND MISTLETOE,
AND PRESENTS
ON THE TREE.
CHRISTMAS EVE
WILL FIND ME
WHERE THE LOVELIGHT
GLEAMS.
I'LL BE HOME FOR CHRISTMAS,
IF ONLY IN MY DREAMS.

Lyrics I'M FILLED WITH CHRISTMAS CHEER
BECAUSE I GOT A WONDERFUL GIFT
THIS YEAR.

I'M GONNA BE AN ANGEL,
I'M GONNA BE AN ANGEL,
I'M GONNA BE AN ANGEL
IN THE CHRISTMAS PLAY.
I'M GONNA HAVE A HALO,
A BRIGHT AND SHINY HALO,
I'M GONNA HAVE A HALO
IN THE CHRISTMAS PLAY TODAY.
I'M GONNA WEAR A PAIR OF WINGS
AND RIDE UPON A CLOUD.
WHEN MOMMY HEARD
I GOT THE PART
I DON'T KNOW WHY
SHE LAUGHED SO LOUD.
I'M GONNA BE AN ANGEL,
A PERFECT LITTLE ANGEL,
I'M GONNA BE AN ANGEL
ANYWAY.

THIS MORNING
I LOST MY FAVORITE SNAKE
IN A BATTER
OF MOMMY'S CHOCOLATE CAKE.
THEN I WENT TO THE STORE
AND BOUGHT SOME CHALK
AND SCRIBBLED THE NEWS
ON OUR FRONT WALK.
BUT I WILL BE AN ANGEL
IN THE CHRISTMAS PLAY.
THIS MORNING
I MADE A BIG MUD BALL
AND I SPLATTERED IT
ON MY BEDROOM WALL.
THEN I HURRIED OUTSIDE
AND CAUGHT A MOUSE
AND MADE IT A HOME
IN SISTER'S BLOUSE.
THEN MY DADDY FELL DOWN
A FLIGHT OF STAIRS
THEY TELL ME
I LEFT MY SKATES SOMEWHERE.
BUT I WILL BE AN ANGEL,
A BRIGHT AND SHINY ANGEL,
I'M GONNA BE AN ANGEL
IN THE CHRISTMAS PLAY.

Lyrics Text by Christina Rossetti:

IN THE BLEAK MIDWINTER,
FROSTY WIND MADE MOAN,
EARTH STOOD HARD AS IRON,
WATER LIKE A STONE
SNOW HAD FALLEN,
SNOW ON SNOW,
ON SNOW,
HEAVEN CANNOT HOLD HIM,
NOR EARTH SUSTAIN,
HEAVEN AND EARTH
SHALL FLEE
WHEN HE COMES
TO REIGN.

ANGELS AND ARCHANGELS
MAY HAVE GATHERED THERE,
CHERUBIM AND SERAPHIM,
CHERUBIM AND ARCHANGELS,
ANGELS,
ARCHANGELS,
CHERUBIM,
SERAPHIM
THRONGED THE AIR,
ANGELS AND ARCHANGELS
THRONGED THE AIR
BUT HIS MOTHER
ONLY IN HER MAIDEN BLISS,
WORSHIPED THE BELOVED
WITH A KISS.

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 I CAN,
I GIVE HIM,
WHAT I CAN,
I GIVE HIM:

GIVE MY HEART
IN THE BLEAK MIDWINTER,
LONG AGO.

Lyrics BELLS WILL BE RINGING
THE BAD, BAD NEWS,
OH, WHAT A CHRISTMAS
TO HAVE THE BLUES.
MY BABY'S GONE,
I HAVE NO FRIENDS
TO WISH ME GREETINGS
GREETINGS ONCE AGAIN.

CHOIRS WILL BE SINGING
SILENT NIGHT,
CHRISTMAS CAROLS
BY CANDLELIGHT.
PLEASE COME HOME FOR CHRISTMAS,
PLEASE COME HOME FOR CHRISTMAS,
IF NOT FOR CHRISTMAS,
BY NEW YEAR'S NIGHT.

FRIENDS AND RELATIONS
SEND SALUTATIONS
SURE AS THE STARS
SHINE ABOVE.
FOR THIS IS CHRISTMAS,
CHRISTMAS MY DEAR,
THE TIME OF YEAR
TO BE WITH
THE ONE YOU LOVE.

OH, WON'T YOU TELL ME
YOU'LL NEVER ROAM.
CHRISTMAS AND NEW YEAR
WILL FIND YOU HOME.
THERE'LL BE NO TROUBLE
NO GRIEF AND PAIN
FOR I'LL BE HAPPY
ONCE AGAIN.

WILL YA?

SANTA BABY,
JUST SLIP A SABLE
UNDER THE TREE
FOR ME,

SANTA CUTIE,
AND FILL MY STOCKING
WITH A DUPLEX
AND CHECKS,
SIGN YOUR X
ON THE LINE
SANTA CUTIE,
AND HURRY DOWN
THE CHIMNEY TONIGHT.

COME AND TRIM
MY CHRISTMAS TREE
WITH SOME DECORATIONS
BOUGHT AT TIFFANY.
I REALLY DO
BELIEVE IN YOU,
LET'S SEE
IF YOU BELIEVE
IN ME.

SANTA BABY,
FORGOT TO MENTION
ONE LITTLE THING
- A RING!
I DON'T MEAN
ON THE PHONE
SANTA BABY,
SO HURRY DOWN
THE CHIMNEY TONIGHT.
