Deck The Halls

 

Intro 2

 

Deck the halls with boughs of holly,

Fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la.

’Tis the season to be jolly,

Fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la.

 

Don we now our gay apparel,

Fa-la-la, la-la-la, la-la-la.

Troll the ancient Yule-tide carol,

Fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la.

 

See the blazing Yule before us,

Fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la.

Strike the harp and join the chorus,

Fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la.

 

Follow me in merry measure,

Fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la.

While I tell of Yule-tide treasure,

Fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la.

 

Fast away the old year passes,

Fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la.

Hail the new, ye lads and lasses,

Fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la.

 

Sing we joyous, all together,

Fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la.

Heedless of the wind and weather,

Fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la.

Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer

 

Intro 4

 

You know Dasher and Dancer and Prancer and Vixen,

Comet and Cupid and Donder 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 all the reindeer loved him

As they shouted out with glee,

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer,

You'll go down in history.

Frosty The Snowman

 

Intro 4

 

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 fairy tale, 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

Oh, 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

 

Ooh 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!"

Oh, Frosty the snowman

Had to hurry on his way

But he waved goodbye, saying

"Don't you cry, I'll be back again someday."

 

Thumpety thump thump

Thumpety thump thump

Look at Frosty go

Thumpety thump thump

Thumpety thump thump

Over the hills of snow

It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas

 

Intro 4

 

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 trumpet that toots

Is the wish of Barney and Jen

Dolls that will talk and will go for a walk

Is the hope of Janice and Ben

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

Dreidel, Dreidel, Dreidel

 

Intro 6

 

Dreidel, dreidel, dreidel,

I made it out of clay,

And when it’s dry and ready,

Then dreidel I shall play!

 

Oh, dreidel, dreidel, dreidel,

I made it out of clay,

And when it’s dry and ready,

Then dreidel I shall play!

O Chanukkah

 

Intro 4

 

Oh Chanukkah, Oh Chanukkah

Come light the menorah 

Let’s have a party, we’ll all dance the hora

Gather round the table, we’ll give you a treat

Dreidels to play with and latkes to eat

And while we are playing, the candles are burning bright

One for each night

They shed a sweet light

To remind us of years long ago

One for each night 

They shed a sweet light

To remind us of years long ago

Let It Snow!  Let It Snow!  Let It Snow!

 

Intro 2

 

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

 

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, let it snow

 

When we finally say good-night

How I'll hate going out in the storm

But if you really hold me tight

All the way home I'll be warm

 

And the fire is slowly dying

And, my dear, we're still goodbying

But as long as you love me so

Let it snow, let it snow and snow

Jingle Bells

 

Intro 4

 

Dashing through the snow

In a one-horse open sleigh

O'er the fields we go

Laughing all the way

 

Bells on bobtails 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, hey!

 

Jingle bells, jingle bells

Jingle all the way

Oh, what fun it is to ride

In a one-horse open sleigh

Break 4

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 then we got upsot

 

Jingle bells, jingle bells

Jingle all the way

Oh, what fun it is to ride

In a one-horse open sleigh, hey!

 

Jingle bells, jingle bells

Jingle all the way

Oh, what fun it is to ride

In a one-horse open sleigh

Vive Le Vent

 

Vive le vent, vive le vent,

Vive le vent d’hiver

Qui s’en va sifflant, soufflant

Dans les grands sapins verts.

 

Oh! Vive le temps, vive le temps,

Vive le temps d’hiver

Boule de neige et jour de l’an

Et bonne année grand-mère.

 

Vive le vent, vive le vent,

Vive le vent d’hiver

Qui rapporte aux vieux enfants

Un souvenir d’hier.

 

Oh! Vive le temps, vive le temps,

Vive le temps d’hiver

Boule de neige et jour de l’an

Et bonne année grand-mère.

Ein kleiner weißer Schneemann

 

Ein kleiner weißer Schneemann
der steht vor meiner Tür,
ein kleiner weißer Schneemann
der stand gestern noch nicht hier,
 

und neben dran der Schlitten,
der lädt uns beide ein,
zur aller ersten Schlittenfahrt
ins Märchenland hinein.

 

Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells,
klingt es weit und breit.
Schön ist eine Schlittenfahrt
im Winter wenn es schneit.
 

Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells,
klingt es weit und breit.
Mach' mit mir 'ne Schneeballschlacht,
der Winter steht bereit!

 

Er kam auf leisen Sohlen
ganz über Nacht,
hat heimlich und verstohlen
den ersten Schnee gebracht.

 

Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells,
klingt es weit und breit.
Hell erstrahlt die ganze Welt
im weißen, weißen Kleid.
 

Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells,
klingt es weit und breit.
Christkind geht durch
den Winterwald,
denn bald ist Weihnachtszeit.

Cascabel 

 

Cascabel, cascabel,

Dulces horas, gratas horas,

Juventud en flor.

Cascabel, cascabel,

tan sentimental.

No ceces, oh cascabel,

How lovely are your branches!
O Christmas Tree, O Christmas tree,
How lovely are your branches!
Not only green in summer’s heat,
But also winter’s snow and sleet.
O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree,
How lovely are your branches!

O Christmas Tree, O Christmas tree,
Of all the trees most lovely;
O Christmas Tree, O Christmas tree,
Of all the trees most lovely.
Each year you bring to us delight
With brightly shining Christmas light!

Give hope and strength throughout the year.

Du grünst nicht nur zur Sommerzeit,

Nein auch im Winter, wenn es schneit.

Die Hoffnung und Beständigkeit

Gibt Trost und Kraft zu jeder Zeit.

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 mingle in the jinglin' beat 

That's the jingle bell rock

My Favorite Things

 

Intro 4

 

Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens 

Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens 

Brown paper packages tied up with strings 

These are a few of my favorite things

 

Cream-colored ponies and crisp apple strudels 

Doorbells and sleigh bells and schnitzel with noodles 

Wild geese that fly with the moon on their wings 

These are a few of my favorite things

 

Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes 

Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes 

Silver-white winters that melt into springs 

These are a few of my favorite things

 

When the dog bites 

When the bee stings 

When I'm feeling sad 

I simply remember my favorite things 

And then I don't feel so bad

Intro 4

 

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

Up On The Housetop

 

Intro 4 

 

Up on the housetop
Reindeer pause,
Out jumps good old Santa Claus.
Down thru’ the chimney
With lots of toys,
All for the little ones,
Christmas joys.
 

Ho, ho, ho!
Who wouldn’t go!
Ho, ho, ho!
Who wouldn’t go!
Up on the housetop,
Click, click, click,
Down thru’ the chimney
With good Saint Nick.

 

First comes the stocking
Of little Nell,
Oh, dear Santa
Fill it well;
Give her a dolly
That laughs and cries
One that will open
And shut her eyes.
 

Ho, ho, ho!
Who wouldn’t go!
Ho, ho, ho!
Who wouldn’t go!
Up on the housetop,
Click, click, click,
Down thru’ the chimney
With good Saint Nick.

 

Next comes the stocking
Of little Will,
Oh just see
What a glorious fill
Here is a hammer
And lots of tacks,
Also a ball
And a whip that cracks.
 

Ho, ho, ho!
Who wouldn’t go!
Ho, ho, ho!
Who wouldn’t go!
Up on the housetop,
Click, click, click,
Down thru’ the chimney
With good Saint Nick.

We Need A Little Christmas

 

Intro 2  

 

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
