There Is No Christmas Like a Home Christmas

Words by Carl Sigman; music by Mickey J. Addy
radio playing

There is no Christmas like a home Christmas
With you Dad and Mother, Sis' and Brother there,
With their hearts humming at your home-coming,
And that merry yuletide spirit in the air.
Christmas bells, Christmas bells, ringing loud and strong.
Follow them, follow them, you've been away too long.
There is no Christmas like a home Christmas
For that's the time of year all roads lead home.

Toyland

Words by Glen MacDonough; music by Victor Herbert

Toyland! Toyland!
Little girl and boy land,
While you dwell within it.
You are ever happy then.
Childhood's joy-land
Mystic merry Toyland,
Once you pass its borders
You can never return again.

The Twelve Days of Christmas

Traditional English Carol
radio playing

On the first day of Christmas my true love gave to me
A partridge in a pear tree.

On the second day of Christmas my true love gave to me
Two turtle doves and a partridge in a pear tree.

On the third day of Christmas my true love gave to me
Three French hens, two turtle doves, and a partridge in a pear tree.

On the fourth day of Christmas...four calling birds
On the fifth day of Christmas...five golden rings
On the sixth day of Christmas...six geese a laying
On the seventh day of Christmas...seven swans a swimming
On the eighth day of Christmas...eight maids a milking
On the nineth day of Christmas...nine ladies dancing
On the tenth day of Christmas...ten lords a leaping
On the eleventh day of Christmas...eleven pipers piping
On the twelfth day of Christmas...twelve drummers drumming

Up on the Housetop

Words and music by B. R. Handy
radio playing

Up on the housetop reindeer pause,
Out jumps good old Santa Claus;
Down thru 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 thru the chimney with good Saint Nick.

First comes the stocking of little Nell;
Oh, dear Santa, fill it well;
Give her a dollie that laughs and cries,
One that will open and shut her eyes.
Ho, ho, ho, Who wouldn't go!
Ho, ho, ho, Who wouldn't go!
Up on the housetop, click, click, click,
Down thru the chimney with good Saint Nick.
