WINTER WONDERLAND

Sleigh bells ring,

are you listening,

in the lane,

snow is glistening;

A beautiful sight,

we're happy tonight,

walking 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,

walking 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've made,

walking in a winter wonderland.

CHRISTMAS SONG
 

Chestnuts roasting on an open fire,

Jack Frost nipping at your nose.

Yuletide carols being sung by a choir,

And folks dressed up like eskimoes.

Everybody knows a turkey and some mistletoe,

Helps to make a season bright.

Tiny tots with their eyes all a glow,

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 going to 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.

Although it's been said, may times, many ways;

Merry Christmas to you!

[repeat]

IT'S BEGINNING TO LOOK ALOT LIKE CHRISTMAS
 

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.

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas

Ev'rywhere 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.

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.

THE FIRST NOEL

1) The first Nowell, the angels 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. [CHORUS]

_______________________________________________________

Nowell, nowell, nowell, nowell,

born is the King of Israel.

_______________________________________________________

2) They looked above 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. [CHORUS]

_______________________________________________________

3) And by the light of that same star

three sages came from country far;

To seek for a king was their intent,

and to follow the star wherever it went. [CHORUS]

_______________________________________________________

4) This star shone bright in the northwest,

o'er Bethlehem it seemed to rest,

And there it did both stop and stay,

right over the place where Jesus lay. [CHORUS]

_______________________________________________________

5) Then entered in those magi three,

and bending low upon their knees,

They offered there, in great reverence,

their gold and myrrh and frankincense. [CHORUS]

JINGLE BELLS
 

1) Dashing through the snow,

In a one-horse open sleigh,

O'er 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. [chorus]

_______________________________________________________

CHORUS:

Jingle bells, jingle bells,

Jingle all the way,

Oh, what fun it is to ride

In a one-horse open sleigh, O

Jingle bells, jingle bells,

Jingle all the way,

Oh, what fun it is to ride

In a one-horse open sleigh.

*******************************************************

2) 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,

We ran into a drifted bank,

And there we got upsot. [chorus]

*******************************************************

3) Now the ground is white,

Go it while you're young,

Take the girls along,

And sing this sleighing song.

Just get a bob-tailed bay,

Two-forty as his speed,

Hitch him to an open sleigh

And crack! You'll take the lead. [chorus]

*******************************************************

BETHLEHEM! OH BETHLEHEM!
Bill Baxter
 

CHORUS:

Bethlehem! O Bethlehem!

The City of which The Angels sing.

In a manger bare

Born of Mary there

'Twas the Savior Christ the King.

*******************************************************

1) Gloria! Gloria!

In excelsis Deo

They heard The Angels sing

Good tidings they did bring

Off to Bethlehem the shepherds did go. [chorus]

************************

2) The Wisemen journeyed far,

And they followed the star,

Which shined over the place where Jesus lay.

On that 12th Christmas Day,

They came to the place,

Where Mary, Joseph, and the Baby Jesus stayed. [chorus]

***********************************

3) During this time of year

Which we hold so dear

And do things that are festive beyond reason.

The Name which stands out

From Frosty and Santa, is Jesus;

Who's the reason for The Season. [chorus]

*******************************************************

We won't go until we get some, so bring some out here
We wish you a Merry Christmas; 
We wish you a Merry Christmas; 
We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
