Track Name: A Christmas Song
christmas eve
and all the shoppers fill the town
and the snow is slowly drifting down
all around
there's the sound
of carols falling on the ear
saying christmas day will soon be here
and the lights
glow a warm red and green
it's a beautiful sight
like an old movie scene
in a beautiful world of magic and of love

christmas eve
the best night of the year
is finally here
meaning christmas is near
christmas eve

christmas eve
and strings of lights line every street
while the children try to fall asleep
counting sheep
there's a sheet
of snowflakes lying on the grass
saying christmas day is here at last
and the lights
glow a warm red and green
it's a beautiful sight
like an old movie scene
in a beautiful world of magic and of love

christmas day
all the children will cheer
the best day of the year
is finally here
christmas day
Track Name: The Bells They Ring
the bells they ring
because it's christmas day
the choirs sing
christmas songs all day
but the loudest song of all will be the song of all mankind
singing love
at christmas time

the cymbals clang
and the band all plays
the drums go bang
leading the parade
but the loudest sound of all is every heart beating in time
beating joy
at christmas time

Loving one another
is the only way
if we really want
to make the yuletide gay

the bells they ring
because it's christmas day
the choirs sing
christmas songs all day
but the loudest song of all will be the song of all mankind
singing love
at christmas time
Track Name: I Wish It Would Snow
well I wish that it would snow
let it snow all through the night
'cause all i want is for this christmas to be white

well I wish that it would snow
let it snow down from the sky
maybe then it would finally feel like christmas time

and all of the snowflakes that fall down on my nose
make me think of santa maybe this year he will show
i hope he remembers that letter that i wrote
saying all i want for christmas... is snow

snow down, snow down on me

well I wish that it would snow
let it snow all through the night
'cause all i want is for this christmas to be white

well I wish that it would snow
let it snow just once this year
maybe then it would feel like christmas day is here

and all of the snowflakes that fall down on my nose
make me think of santa maybe this year he will show
i hope he remembers that letter that i wrote
saying all i want for christmas... is snow

snow down, snow down on me
snow down, snow down on me
Track Name: My Christmas Gift (After the Eggnog)
my christmas gift
is for nobody but you
my christmas gift
is the love i have for you
as the days go by
my love will never die
my gift will last your whole life through

gold will lose its shine
and diamonds fade with time
but my love will never fade away
like a bottle of wine
it just gets sweeter with time
my love for you is here to stay

my christmas gift
is for nobody but you
my christmas gift
is the love i have for you
as the days go by
my love will never die
my gift will last your whole life through

and when
there's no more pie
and all the egg nog has run dry
and it's time to turn off the christmas lights
(I will still be there)
and I will say to you
ho ho ho
let's go find some mistletoe

my love will last beyond christmas night
my love will still be there when we see the morning light
as the years go by
oh my love will never die
my love will last the rest of your life
my christmas gift will last the rest of your life
Track Name: He's Santa Clause
he's santa claus
he's ridin' that sleigh
he's gotta bring those toys to the kids
by christmas day

he's ol' st. nick
he's got a big ol' beard
and he know's if you've been good
all through the year


so if you wanna get a present
then this is my advice
don't be on the naughty list
you gotta be on the nice

and if you want him to fill your stocking
then this is what you do
leave a glass of milk
and a couple cookie too


he's santa claus
he's ridin' that sleigh
he's gotta bring those toys to the kids
by christmas day

he's kris kringle
he's makin' them toys
he's gotta spread that christmas cheer
to all the girls and boys

so if you wanna get a present
then this is my advice
don't be on the naughty list
you gotta be on the nice

and if you want him to fill your stocking
then this is what you do
leave a glass of milk
and a couple cookie too
