I don't want that holly jolly cheer I don't need 12 long days of Christmas I just need your Christmas presence here I don't need those silver bells ringing in Christmas joy I don't need snow blanketing the ground I don't need to deck the halls with boughs of anything I just need your Christmas presence here I don't hear angel choirs singing I don’t see sleighs with nine reindeer I don't hear angel choirs singing I just need your Christmas presence hear I don't see those sugar plums dancing in the children's heads I don't feel the spell of a holy night I don't wish for stockings hung with tenderness and care I just need your Christmas presence here I don't need this day to be the best one of the year I just need your Christmas spirit here

Don’t leave me here tonight It ‘s almost Christmas Eve I’d‘ve done things differently If you’d told me you would leave I would sing for you another song If the first one wasn't perfect And I wouldn't make you sing along If you did not prefer it That food we ate tonight Was a pathetic final meal Won't you stay for Christmas day And I'll make you something real Goose and cranberries and pumpkin pie I don’t know what a sugar plum is But I'd whip it up for you, my dear If it would make a difference The decorations, love Left much to be desired If you’d stay with me a little more I'll make sure they're rewired You deserve a full grown evergreen With 100,000 strands of lights And a humongous gift to you from me Would probably set things right Please don’t go

Oh, little town of Bethlehem How still we see thee lie Above thy deep and dreamless sleep The silent stars go by Yet in thy dark streets shineth The everlasting light The hopes and fears of all the years Are met in thee tonight. For Christ is born of Mary And gathered all above While mortals sleep, the angels keep Their watch of wondering love Oh, morning stars together Proclaim thy holy birth And praises sing to God the King And peace to men on earth. How silently, how silently The wonderous gift is given So God imparts to human hearts The blessings of His heaven No ear may hear His coming But in this world of sin When meek souls will receive Him still The dear Christ enters in. Oh, holy child of Bethlehem Descend to us we pray Cast out our sin and enter in Be born to us today We hear the Christmas angels The great glad tidings tell Oh come to us, abide in us Our Lord, Emmanuel

Welcome Christmas, fa who ramus Welcome Christmas, da who damus Welcome Christmas while we stand Heart to heart and hand in hand. Trim up the tree with Christmas stuff Like bingle balls and who foo fluff Trim up the tree with goowho gums And bizzlewicks and wums Trim every blessed window And trim every blessed door Hang up who-boo-who bricks Then run out and get some more Hand patoonkahs on the ceiling Pile pankoonas on the floor Trim every blessed needle On the blessed Christmas tree Christmas comes tomorrow Trim you, trim me! Trim up the tree with fuzzle fuzz And whiffer bloofs and wuzzle wuzz Trim up your uncle and your aunt With yards of who-flunt flan Fa who forays, da who dorays Welcome Christmas, come this way Fa who forays, da who dorays Welcome Christmas, Christmas day.

There’s magic in the air this evening Magic in the air The world is at her best you know When people love and care The promise of excitement is one the night will keep After all there’s only one more sleep til Christmas. The world has got a smile today The world has got a glow There’s no such thing as strangers when A stranger says hello And everyone is family, we’re having so much fun After all there’s only one more sleep til Christmas Tis the season to be jolly and joyous With a burst of pleasure we feel it alright It’s the season when the saints will employ us To share the news about peace and to keep love alive There’s something in the wind today That‘s good for everyone Yes faith is in our hearts today We’re shining like the sun And everyone can feel it, the feeling’s running deep After all there’s only one more sleep til Christmas After all there’s only one more sleep til Christmas day

It came upon a midnight clear That glorious song of old From angels bending near the earth To touch their harps of gold Peace on the earth, goodwill to men From heaven’s all gracious King The world in solemn stillness lay To hear the angels sing Still through the cloven skies they come With peaceful wings unfurled And still their heavenly music floats O'er all the weary world Above its sad and lowly plains They bend on hovering wing And ever o'er its Babel sounds The blessed angels sing For lo, the days are hastening on By prophet bards foretold When with the ever circling years Comes round the age of gold When peace shall over all the earth Its ancient splendors fling And the whole world give back the song Which now the angels sing

Christmas time is here Happiness and cheer Fun for all the children call Their favorite time of year Snowflakes in the air Carols everywhere Olden times and ancient rhymes Of love and dreams to share Sleigh bells in the air Beauty everywhere Yuletide by the fireside And joyful memories there Christmas time is here Families drawing near Oh that we could always see Such spirit through the year

God rest ye, merry gentlemen Let nothing you dismay Remember Christ our Savior Was born on Christmas day To save us all from Satan’s power When we were gone astray Oh tidings of comfort and joy From God our heavenly Father A blessed angel came And unto certain shepherds Brought tidings of the same How that in Bethlehem was born The Son of God by name Oh tidings of comfort and joy “Fear not,” then said the angel “Let nothing you affright This day is born a Savior Of a pure virgin bright To free all those who trust in Him Of Satan’s power and might” Oh tidings of comfort and joy Now to the Lord sing praises All you within this place And with true love and brotherhood Each other now embrace This holy tide of Christmas All other doth deface Oh tidings of comfort and joy

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 jo For auld lang syne We‘ll take a cup of kindness yet For auld lang syne And surely ye’ll be your pint-stowp! And surely I’ll be mine! And we’ll take a cup of kindness yet, For auld lang syne We twa hae run about the braes, And pu’d the gowans fine; But we’ve wandered mony a weary fit, Sin auld lang syne And there’s a hand, my trusty fiere! And gie‘s a hand o’ thine! And we’ll take a right gude willy waught, For auld lang syne
