Jingle Bell Rock

Words and music by Joe Beal and Jim Boothe
radio playing

Jingle bell, Jingle bell, Jingle bell rock
Jingle bell 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
Giddyap, jingle horse pick up your feet
Jingle around the clock
Mix and mingle in a jinglin' beat
That's the Jingle Bell Rock.

Jingle bell, Jingle bell, Jingle bell rock

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
Giddyap, jingle horse pick up your feet
Jingle around the clock
Mix and mingle in a jinglin' beat
That's the Jingle Bell,
That's the Jingle Bell Rock.

Jingle Bells

Words and music by J. Pierpont
radio playing

Dashing through the snow,
In a one horse open sleigh,
O'er the fields we go
Laughing all the way.
Bells on bob-tail ring
Making spirits bright,
What fun it is to ride and sing
A sleighing song tonight!

CHORUS
Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells,
Jingle all the way.
Oh what fun it is to ride
In a one horse open sleigh!
Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells,
Jingle all the way.
Oh what fun it is to ride
In a one horse open sleigh!

A day or two ago
I thought I'd take a ride;
And soon Miss Fannie Bright
Was seated by my side.
The horse was lean and lank,
Misfortune seemed his lot,
He got into a drifted bank
And we, we got upsot!

CHORUS

Now the ground is white
Go it while you're young.
Take the girls tonight
And sing this sleighing song.
Just get a bob-tail bay.
Two-forty for his speed,
Then hitch him to an open sleigh
And crack! you'll take the lead!

CHORUS

Jingle Jingle Jingle

Words and music by Johnny Marks
radio playing

Jingle, jingle, jingle, you will hear his sleigh bells ring.
Jolly old Kris Kringle is the king of jingling.
Jingle, jingle reindeer, through the frosty air they'll go.
They are not just plain deer, they're the fastest deer I know. (Ho!Ho!)
You must believe that on Christmas Eve Kris won't pass you by.
He'll dash away in his magic sleigh, flying through the sky.
Jingle, jingle, jingle, you will hear his sleigh bells ring.
Jolly old Kris Kringle is the king of jingling.(Ho!Ho!)

Jingle, jingle, jingle, you will hear his sleigh bells ring.
Jolly old Kris Kringle is the king of jingling.
Jingle, jingle reindeer, through the frosty air they'll go.
They are not just plain deer, they're the fastest deer I know. (Ho!Ho!)
You must believe that on Christmas Eve Kris won't pass you by.
He'll dash away in his magic sleigh, flying through the sky.
Jingle, jingle, jingle, you will hear his sleigh bells ring.
Jolly old Kris Kringle is the king of jingling. Ho! Ho!

Jolly Old Saint Nicholas

Traditional 19th Century Americal Carol
radio playing

Jolly old Saint Nicholas,
Lean your ear this way!
Don't you tell a single soul
What I'm going to say.
Christmas Eve is coming soon.
Now, my dear old man,
Whisper what you'll bring to me.
Tell me if you can.

When the clock is striking twelve,
When I'm fast asleep
Down the chimney broad and black,
With your pack you'll creep.
All the stockings you will find
Hanging in a row.
Mine will be the shortest one.
You'll be sure to know.

Johnny wants a pair of skates,
Suzy wants a sled;
Nellie wants a picture book,
Yellow, blue, and red.
Now I think I'll leave to you
What to give the rest.
Choose for me, dear Santa Claus.
You will know the best.

Joy to the World

Words by Isaac Watts; music by George F. Handel
radio playing

Joy to the world!
The Lord is come.
Let earth receive her King.
Let ev'ry heart prepare Him room,
And heav'n and nature sing,
And heav'n and nature sing,
And heav'n and heav'n and nature sing,

Joy to the world!
The Savior reigns.
Let men their songs employ.
While field and floods
Rocks, hills, and plains
Repeat the sounding joy,
Repeat the sounding joy,
Repeat, repeat the sounding joy,

He rules the world
With truth and grace,
And makes the nations prove
The glories of His righteousness
And wonders of His love,
And wonders of His love,
And wonders, wonders of His love.

Let It Snow!Let It Snow!Let It Snow!

Words by Sammy Cahn; music by Jule Styne
radio playing

Oh, the weather outside is frightful,
But the fire is so delightful.
And since we've no place to go,
Let it snow! Let it snow! Let it snow!

It doesn't show signs of stopping,
And I brought some corn for popping.
The lights are turned way down low.
Let it snow! Let it snow! Let it snow!

When we finally kiss goodnight,
How I hate going out in the storm!
But if you'll really hold me tight,
All the way home I'll be warm.

The fire is slowly dying,
And, my dear, we're still goodbyeing,
But as long as you love me so,
Let it snow! Let it snow! Let it snow!

The weather outside is frightful,
But the fire is so delightful.
And since we've no place to go,
Let it snow! Let it snow! Let it snow!

The Little Drummer Boy

Words and music by Katherine Davis, Henry Onorati, and Harry Simeone
radio playing

Come they told me, pa-rum pum pum pum.
Our new born King to see, pa-rum pum pum pum.
Our finest gifts we bring, pa-rum pum pum pum.
To lay before the King, pa-rum pum pum pum,
Rum pum pum pum, rum pum pum pum.
So to honor Him, pa-rum pum pum pum,
When we come.

Baby Jesus, pa-rum pum pum pum.
I am a poor boy too, pa-rum pum pum pum.
I have no gift to bring, pa-rum pum pum pum.
That's fit to give our King, pa-rum pum pum pum,
Rum pum pum pum, rum pum pum pum.
Shall I play for You, pa-rum pum pum pum,
On my drum?

Mary nodded, pa-rum pum pum pum.
The ox and lamb kept time, pa-rum pum pum pum.
I played my drum for Him, pa-rum pum pum pum.
I played my best for Him, pa-rum pum pum pum,
Rum pum pum pum, rum pum pum pum.
Then He smiled at me, pa-rum pum pum pum,
Me and my drum.

Little Saint Nick

Words and music by Brian Wilson

Well, way up north where the air gets cold,
There's a tale about Christmas that you've all been told,
And a real famous cat all dressed up in red,
And he spends his whole year working out in his sled.
It's the little Saint Nick, (little Saint Nick.)
It's the little Saint Nick, (little Saint Nick.)

Just a little bob-sled, we call it old Saint Nick,
But she'll walk the toboggan with a four-speed stick.
She's candy-apple red with a ski for a wheel,
And when Santa gives the gas, man just watch her peel.
It's the little Saint Nick, (little Saint Nick.)
It's the little Saint Nick, (little Saint Nick.)
Run, run, reindeer. Run, run, reindeer
Run, run, reindeer. Run, run, reindeer

He's haulin' through the snow at a fright'nin' speed,
With a half dozen deer, with Rudy to lead.
He's got to wear goggles 'cuz the snow really flies,
And he's cruisin' ev'ry pad with a little surprise.
It's the little Saint Nick, (little Saint Nick.)
It's the little Saint Nick, (little Saint Nick.)

Oo, Merry Christmas Saint Nick.
