Christmas Caroling

ALL I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS

Chorus:
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.  (Chorus)

 

ANGELS WE HAVE HEARD ON HIGH
Angels we have heard on high, sweetly

singing o’er the plains, And the mountains in

reply, echoing their joyous strains.

 

Gloria in excelsis Deo,

Gloria in excelsis Deo.

 

Shepherds, why the jubilee?

Why your joyous strains prolong?

What the gladsome tidings be

Which inspire your heav’nly song?  (Chorus)

 

Come to Bethlehem and see, Him whose

Birth the angels sing. Come adore on

Bended knee, Christ the Lord,

The newborn King.  (Chorus)

 

AWAY IN A MANGER
Away in a manger, no crib for a bed

the little Lord Jesus laid down his

sweet head. The stars in the heaven

looked down where he lay.  The

little Lord Jesus asleep on the hay.

 

Be near me Lord, Jesus, I ask you

to stay beside me forever, and guide

me, I pray.  Bless all the dear children

in your tender care, and take us to

heaven to be with you there.

 

 

CHRISTMAS SONG
Chestnuts roasting on an open fire.

Jack Frost nipping on your nose,

Yuletide carols being sung by a choir,

And folks dressed up like Eskimos.

Everybody knows a turkey and some

mistletoe, help to make the season bright.

Tiny tots with their eyes all aglow, will find

it hard to sleep tonight.

They know that Santa’s on his way;

He’s loaded lots of toys and goodies on his

sleigh.  And every mother’s child is gonna

spy, to see if reindeer really know how to fly.

And so I’m offering this simple phrase,

to kids from one to ninety-two,

although it’s been said many times,

many ways, Merry Christmas,

Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas to you.

 

DECK THE HALLS

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.

 

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.

 

FELIZ NAVIDAD

Feliz navidad, feliz navidad,Feliz

navidad, prospero ano y Felicidad. (Repeat)

 

I wanna wish you a Merry Christmas (x3)

From the bottom of my heart. 
 

FROSTY THE SNOWMAN

Frosty the snowman was a jolly, happy soul,

With a corn cob pipe and a button nose,

And two eyes made out of coal.  Frosty

The snowman is a fairytale, they say,

He was made of snow by 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.

 

Thumpety, thump, thump,

Thumpety, thump, thump,

Look at Frosty go.

Thumpety, thump, thump,

Thumpety, thump, thump,

Over the hills of snow.

 

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!”

 

Frosty the snowman had to

Hurry on his way, but he waved

Goodbye, saying, “Don’t you cry,

I’ll be back again some day.”

Thumpety, thump, thump…
 

HOLLY JOLLY CHRISTMAS

Have a holly jolly Christmas

It’s the best time of the year.

I don’t know if there’ll be snow

But have a cup of cheer.

 

Have a holly jolly Christmas

And when you walk down the street

Say hello to friends you know

And ev’ryone you meet.

 

Oh, ho, the mistletoe

Hung where you can see

Somebody waits for you

Kiss her once for me.

 

Have a holly jolly Christmas

And in case you didn’t hear

Oh, by golly, have a holly jolly

Christmas – this year.

 

I’LL BE HOME FOR CHRISTMAS

I’ll be home for Christmas

You can count 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.

 

JINGLE BELLS

Dashing through the snow

In a one horse open sleigh

O’er the fields we go

Laughing all the way.

Bells on bobtail ring

Making spirits bright

What fun it is to laugh 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!
 

JOY TO THE WORLD

Joy to the world!  The Lord has come;

Let earth receive her King;

Let every heart prepare him room,

And heaven and nature sing,

And heaven and nature sing,

And heaven, and heaven, and nature sing.

 

Joy to the world!  The Savior reigns;

Let men their songs employ;

While fields and floods, rocks, hills,

And plains, repeat the sounding joy,

Repeat the sounding joy.  Repeat,

Repeat the sounding joy.

 

MY FAVORITE THINGS

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.

 

O LITTLE TOWN OF BETHLEHEM

O little town of Bethlehem,

How still we see thee lie!

Above thy dep 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.

O morning stars, together

Proclaim the holy birth!

And praises sing to God the King,

And peace to men on earth.

 

RUDOLPH, THE RED-NOSED REINDEER
Rudolph, the red nosed reindeer, had a

Very shiny nose!  (Like a lightbulb!) And,

If you ever saw it, you would even say

It glows!  (Like a flashlight!)

 

All of the other reindeer, used to laugh

And call him names.  (Like Pinocchio!)

They never let poor Rudolph join in any

Reindeer games.  (Like Monopoly!)

 

Then one foggy Christmas Eve, Santa came

To say, (Ho! Ho! Ho!):  “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, (Yippee!): 

“Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer, you’ll

Go down in history!” (Like George

Washington!)

 

SANTA CLAUS IS COMIN’ TO TOWN
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.

Santa Claus is coming to town.


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!

 

Oh! You better watch out, you better

Not cry, better not pout I’m telling you why.

Santa Claus is coming to town.

Santa Claus is coming to town.

 

SILENT NIGHT
Silent night, holy night. 

All is calm, all is bright.

‘Round yon virgin mother and Child

Holy infant so tender and mild.

Sleep in heavenly peace (x 2).

 

Silent night, holy night,

Shepherds quake at the sight.

Glories stream from heaven afar,

Heav’nly hosts sing Alleluia;

Christ the Savior is born (x2).

 

Silent night, holy night,

Son of God, love’s pure light.

Radiant beams from Thy holy face,

With the dawn of redeeming grace,

Jesus, Lord, at Thy birth (x2).

 

SILVER BELLS

City sidewalks, busy sidewalks

Dressed in holiday style. 

In the air there’s a feeling of Christmas. 

Children laughing, people passing

Meeting smile after smile

And on every street corner you’ll hear.


Chorus:

Silver bells, silver bells

It’s Christmas time in the city.

Ring-a-ling, hear them sing.

Soon it will be Christmas day.

 

Strings of streetlights, even stoplights

Blink a bright red and green

As the shoppers rush home with their

Treasures.  Hear the snow crunch,

See the kids bunch,

This is Santa’s big scene.  And above

all this bustle you’ll hear. (Chorus)

 

THE TWELVE DAYS OF CHRISTMAS

On the first day of Christmas,

My true love sent to me:

     A partridge in a pear tree.

 

On the second

     Two turtle doves, and 1…

     Three French hens, 2, 1…etc.

     Four calling birds, 3, 2, 1

 

     Five golden rings, 4, 3, 2, 1

 

     Six geese a laying, 5…

     Seven swans a swimming, 6…

     Eight maids a milking, 7…

     Nine ladies dancing, 8…

     Ten Lords a leaping, 9…

     Eleven pipers piping, 10…

     Twelve drummers drumming, 11…

 

Lets end this…!!!

 

UP ON THE HOUSETOP

Up on the housetop reindeer pause,

Out jumps good old Santa Claus.

Down through 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 through the chimney

With good St. Nick!

 

WE WISH YOU A MERRY CHRISTMAS

We wish you a Merry Christmas (x3)

And a Happy New Year.

 

Chorus:

Good tidings we bring to you and your kin;

Good tidings for Christmas and a

Happy New Year!

 

O, bring us some figgy pudding (x3)

And a cup of good cheer.  (Chorus)

 

We won’t go until we get some (x3)

So bring some out here.  (Chorus)

 

We wish you a Merry Christmas (x3)

And a Happy New Year.

 

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”

 

WINTER WONDERLAND

Sleigh bells ring, are you listening?

In the lane snow is glistening

A beautiful sight, we’re happy tonight

Walking in a winter wonderland.

 

Gone away is the bluebird

Here to stay is a new bird

He sings a love song, as we go along

Walking in a winter wonderland.

 

In the meadow we can build a snowman

Then pretend that he is parson Brown

He’ll say:  Are you married?

We’ll say:  No man,

But you can do the job

When you’re in town.

 

Later on, we’ll conspire

As we sit by the fire

To face unafraid, the plans that we made

Walking in a winter wonderland.
