White Christmas

Wednesday, December 24, 2014

From the 1954 movie of the same name comes this Irving Berlin's classic.

I'm dreaming of a white Christmas
Just like the ones I used to know
Where the tree tops 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 tree tops 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
May all your Christmases
May all your Christmases
May all your Christmases be white


I'm dreaming of a white
Christmas with you
Jingle Bells
All the way, all the way

Grown Up Christmas List

Tuesday, December 23, 2014

Written by David Lynch and Linda Thompson-Jenner, this song was first covered by Natalie Cole in 1990. When Amy Grant recorded it in 1992, she modified it slightly and it got more air play.

Do you remember me?
I sat upon your knee
I wrote to you
With childhood fantasies
Well, I'm all grown-up now
And still need help somehow.
I'm not a child
But my heart still can dream


So here's my lifelong wish
My grown-up Christmas list
Not for myself
But for a world in need



No more lives torn apart
That wars would never start,
And time would heal all hearts
And everyone would have a friend
And right would always win
And love would never end
This is my grown-up Christmas list



As children we believed
The grandest sight to see
Was something lovely
Wrapped beneath our tree
Well heaven surely knows
That packages and bows
Can never heal
A hurting human soul


No more lives torn apart
That wars would never start
And time would heal all hearts
And everyone would have a friend
And right would always win
And love would never end
This is my grown-up Christmas list


What is this illusion called the innocence of youth?
Maybe only in our blind belief can we ever find the truth



No more lives torn apart
That wars would never start
And time would heal all hearts
And everyone would have a friend
And right would always win
And love would never end, oh
This is my grown-up Christmas list
This is my only life long wish
This is my grown-up Christmas list

Deck the Halls

Monday, December 22, 2014

Another classic

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.

My Two Front Teeth

Sunday, December 21, 2014

From 1944

Everybody Pauses and stares at me
These two teeth are gone as you can see
I don't know just who to blame for this catastrophe!
But my one wish on Christmas Eve is as plain as it can be!



All I want for Christmas
is my two front teeth,
my two front teeth,
see my two front teeth!


Gee, if I could only
have my two front teeth,
then I could wish you
"Merry Christmas."
It seems so long since I could say,
"Sister Susie sitting on a thistle!"
Gosh oh gee, how happy I'd be,
if I could only whistle (thhhh, thhhh)


All I want for Christmas
is my two front teeth,
my two front teeth,
see my two front teeth.


Gee, if I could only
have my two front teeth,
then I could wish you
"Merry Christmas!"

    There are several famous people that I wonder, with all the money they have, why they don't fix their teeth.

Carol of the Bells

Saturday, December 20, 2014

This is an old one - some sources say it's based on a 1904 folk song.


Hark! how the bells
Sweet silver bells
All seem to say,
"Throw cares away."
Christmas is here
Bringing good cheer
To young and old
Meek and the bold



Ding, dong, ding, dong
That is their song
With joyful ring
All caroling
One seems to hear
Words of good cheer
From ev'rywhere
Filling the air


Oh how they pound,
Raising the sound,
O'er hill and dale,
Telling their tale,
Gaily they ring
While people sing
Songs of good cheer
Christmas is here
Merry, merry, merry, merry Christmas
Merry, merry, merry, merry Christmas


On, on they send
On without end
Their joyful tone
To ev'ry home


[Repeat from the beginning]

Ding, dong, ding, dong

    This is probably my very favorite Christmas Carol ever. I learned it in Choir in high school and fell in love with it then and there. Whenever I hear it, I still remember my alto part! Thank you so much for sharing it!

    I've always loved that song. Most of the time I only here the instrumental version on the radio. I remember learning to play and sing it in piano lessons as a child.
