Mary’s Boy Child

Long time ago in Bethlehem So the Holy Bible say Mary’s boy child, Jesus Christ Was born on Christmas Day.

Hark now hear the angels sing A new king born today And man will live for evermore Because of Christmas Day.

While shepherds watched their flocks by night, then hear a choir sing Then see a bright new shining star Music seemed to come from afar.

Hark now hear the angels sing A new king born today And man will live for evermore Because of Christmas Day. (Repeat chorus X 2)

Joseph and his wife, Mary, Come to Bethlehem that night, Them find no place to born the child, Not a single room was in sight.

Hark now hear the angels sing A new king born today And man will live for evermore Because of Christmas Day. (Repeat chorus X 3)

 

Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer

You know Dasher and Dancer and Prancer and Vixen Comet and Cupid and Donner 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 how the reindeer loved him As they shouted out with glee “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer You’ll go down in history”

 

Mary Did you Know?

Mary, did you know that your Baby Boy would one day walk on water?

Mary, did you know that your Baby Boy would save our sons and daughters?

Did you know that your Baby Boy has come to make you new? This Child that you delivered will soon deliver you.

Mary, did you know that your Baby Boy will give sight to a blind man?

Mary, did you know that your baby boy will calm the storm with His hand?

Did you know that your Baby Boy has walked where angels trod? When you kiss your little Baby you kiss the face of God?

Oh, Mary did you know?

The blind will see The deaf will hear The dead will live again The lame will leap The dumb will speak The praises of The Lamb.

Mary, did you know that your Baby Boy is Lord of all creation?

Mary, did you know that your Baby Boy would one day rule the nations?

Did you know that your Baby Boy is heaven’s perfect Lamb? The sleeping Child you’re holding is the Great, I Am.

Oh Mary, did you know?

 

Rockin’ around the Christmas tree
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 carolling.

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.

Reindeer Hokey Pokey

You put your hooves in
You put your hooves out
You put your hooves in
and you shake ’em all about
You do the reindeer pokey
And you turn yourself around
That’s what it’s all about.

You put your antlers in
You put your antlers out
You put your antlers in
And you shake it all about
You do the reindeer pokey
And you turn yourself around
That”s what it’s all about.

You put your tail in
You put your tail out
You put your tail in
And you shake it all about
You do the reindeer pokey
And you turn yourself around
That’s what it’s all about.

You better watch out
You better not cry
Better not pout
I’m telling you why
Santa Claus is coming to town

 

He’s making a list
And checking it twice;
Gonna find out Who’s naughty and nice

He sees you when you’re sleeping
He knows when you’re awake
He knows if you’ve been bad or good
So be good for goodness sake!

Jingle Bell Rock

Jingle bell, jingle bell, jingle bell rock
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 a-mingle in the jinglin’ feet
That’s the jingle bell rock

Jingle bell, jingle bell, jingle bell rock
Jingle bell 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 a-mingle in the jinglin’ feet
That’s the jingle bell
That’s the jingle bell
That’s the jingle bell rock

 

Santa Baby

Santa Baby, just slip a sable under the tree…. For me.
Been an awful good girl, Santa baby,
So hurry down the chimney tonight.

Santa baby, a 61 convertible too…….In Red.
I’ll wait up for you dear,
Santa baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight.

Think of all the fun I’ve missed,
Think of all the fellas that I haven’t kissed,
Next year I could be just as good,
If you’ll check off my Christmas list,

Santa baby, I wanna yacht And really that’s not…. a lot,
Been an angel all year,
Santa baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight.

Come and trim my Christmas tree,
With some decorations bought at Tiffany’s,
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,

Hurry down the chimney tonight,
Hurry, tonight.

 

Jingle Bells   – Trad / Aussie

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

Dashing through the bush

In a rusty Holden Ute

Kicking up the dust

Esky in the boot

Kelpie by my side

Singing Christmas songs

Its summer time and I am in

My singlet, shorts and thongs

Oh, Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells, Jingle all the way

Christmas in Australia

On a scorching summer’s day

Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells, Christmas time is beaut

Oh what fun it is to ride, In a rusty Holden Ute

Come the afternoon

Grandpa has a doze

The kids and Uncle Bruce

Are swimming in their clothes

The time comes round to go

We take a family snap

Then pack the car and all shoot through

Before the washing up

 

Oh, Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells, Jingle all the way

Christmas in Australia

On a scorching summer’s day

Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells, Christmas time is beaut

Oh what fun it is to ride, In a rusty Holden Ute

Hallelujah

I heard there was a secret chord
That David played and it pleased the Lord
But you don’t really care for music, do you?

Well, it goes like this, the fourth, the fifth
The minor fall and the major lift
The baffled King composing Hallelujah

Hallelujah….. Hallelujah …….Hallelujah…… Hallelujah

Well, your faith was strong but you needed proof
You saw her bathing on the roof
Her beauty and the moonlight overthrew you

She tied you to her kitchen chair
She broke your throne and she cut your hair
And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah

Hallelujah ….Hallelujah….. Hallelujah     ^ Hallelujah

Baby, I’ve been here before
I’ve seen this room and I’ve walked this floor
I used to live alone before I knew you

I’ve seen your flag on the marble arch
But love is not a victory march
It’s a cold and it’s a broken Hallelujah

Hallelujah……Hallelujah……. Hallelujah     ^  Hallelujah

Well, maybe there’s a god above
But all I’ve ever learned from love
Was how to shoot somebody who outdrew you

It’s not a cry that you hear at night
It’s not somebody who’s seen the light
It’s a cold and it’s a broken Hallelujah

Hallelujah Hallelujah Hallelujah Hallelujah

Hallelujah Hallelujah Hallelujah Hallelujah

All I Want for Christmas (Is You)

I just want you for my own More than you could ever know Make my wish come true oh All I want for Christmas is you

I don’t want a lot for Christmas There is just one thing I need, and I Don’t care about the presents Underneath the Christmas tree I don’t need to hang my stocking There upon the fireplace Santa Claus won’t make me happy With a toy on Christmas day I just want you for my own More than you could ever know Make my wish come true All I want for Christmas is you

I won’t ask for much this Christmas I won’t even wish for snow, and I I just wanna keep on waiting Underneath the mistletoe I won’t make a list and send it To the North Pole for Saint Nick I won’t even stay awake To hear those magic reindeer click ‘Cause I just want you here tonight Holding on to me so tight What more can I do Oh, Baby all I want for Christmas is you

All the lights are shining So brightly everywhere And the sound of children’s Laughter fills the air And everyone is singing I hear those sleigh bells ringing Santa won’t you bring me The one I really need Won’t you please bring my baby to me quickly

I don’t want a lot for Christmas This is all I’m asking for I just wanna see my baby Standing right outside my door I just want you for my own More than you could ever know Make my wish come true Baby all I want for Christmas is you

O holy night

O Holy Night! The stars are brightly shining It is the night of the dear Saviour’s birth.

Long lay the world in sin and error pining Till He appeared and the soul felt its worth

A thrill of hope the weary world rejoices For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn.

Fall on your knees! Oh, hear the angel voices! O night divine, the night when Christ was born;

O night divine, O night, O night divine!

Chains he shall break, for the slave is our brother And in his name all oppression shall cease.

Sweet hymns of joy in grateful chorus raise we With all our hearts we praise His holy name

Christ is the Lord!

Then ever, ever praise we

NOEL NOEL O night, O night divine!

NOEL

NOEL O night, O night divine!

NOEL

NOEL

O night, O night divine!

White Christmas

I’m dreaming of a white Christmas
Just like the ones I used to know
Where the treetops glisten and children listen
To hear sleigh bells in the snow

I’m dreaming of a white Christmas
With every Christmas card I write
May your days be merry and bright
And may all your Christmases be white

I’m dreaming of a white Christmas
Just like the ones I used to know
Where the treetops glisten and children listen
To hear sleigh bells in the snow

I’m dreaming of a white Christmas
With every Christmas card I write
May your days be merry and bright
And may all your Christmases be white

 

I’ll be home for Christmas

I’ll be home for Christmas
You can plan 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
I’ll be home for Christmas
You can plan 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

 

Rudolf The Red Nosed Reindeer

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer

Had a very shiny nose

And if you ever saw it

You might 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 how all the reindeer loved him,

As they shouted out with glee,

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer,

You’ll go down in history.
