Merry Christmas to all our readers/ listeners ( as bread that is broken)



O' Holy Night-38 Special

O holy night the stars are brightly shining
It is the night of our dear Savior's birth
Long lay the world in sin and error pining
Till He appeared and the soul felt its worth

A thrill of hope, the weary world rejoices
For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn
Fall on your knees
O hear the angels' voices
O night divine
O night when Christ was born
O night divine, O night
O night divine

A thrill of hope, the weary world rejoices
For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn
Fall on your knees
O hear the angels' voices
O night divine
O night when Christ was born
O night divine, O night divine
O yes it was
It is the night of our dear saviours birth
O night divine


Santa Claus Is Back In Town-38 Special

Well, it's Christmas time pretty baby
And the snow is falling on the ground
Well, it's Christmas time pretty baby
And the snow is falling down
Well you be a real good little girl
Santa Claus is back in town
Got no sleigh with reindeer
No sack on my back
You're gonna see me comin' in a big black caddilac
Oh, it's Christmas time pretty baby
And the snow is falling on the ground
Well you be a real good little baby
Santa Claus is back in town

Hang up your pretty stockings
And turn off the light
Santa Claus is comin' down your chimney tonight
Oh, it's Christmas time pretty baby
And the snow is falling on the ground
Well you be a real good little baby
Santa Claus is back in town

That Old Rockin Chair-38 Special

Mama, words can't express
How I feel about you
Especially at this Christmastime
You went out of your way,
Thoughtful gifts that you gave
A love of giving, you passed on to us

Christmastime, Lord I love you
Sometimes life just doesn't seem fair
Christmastime, oh I miss you
I still see you in that old rockin' chair

You were always there for me
Through all of your life
I still miss our telephone calls
The jokes that you told
And the laughter we shared
Oh Lord, that's what I miss the most

Christmastime, Lord I love you
Sometimes life just doesn't seem fair
Christmastime, oh I miss you
Sittin' in that old rockin' chair

Lord, keep her safe in your arms
Right where she belongs
'Cause I know she's in heaven
Mama, you're finally home
Oh, you're finally home

Christmastime, Lord I love you
Sometimes life just doesn't seem fair
Christmastime, oh I miss you
Sittin' in that old rockin' chair

I still see you in that old rockin' chair

Merry Christmas
Always know that I'm thinking of you
Merry Christmas
Mama, I will always love you


A Wild-Eyed Christmas Night-38 Special

Now all year long we've been waiting for the season to come
Working and savin', dreamin' 'bout the Christmastime fun
Now the presents are under the tree
I've been as good as I can be
Let's call the gang over
Sounds like a party to me

While the little elves are workin' and the kids are in bed
Reindeer are flyin' way up over our heads
Everything is peaceful
The stars are clear and bright
We're gonna throw a party, celebrate the new year
Just get some 38 Special holiday cheer
This house will be a-rockin' on a wild-eyed Christmas night.

Well we got a few hours till Santa starts comin' our way
He's tunin' up his reindeer; the elves are loadin' the sleigh
The mistletoe is hangin' above
And everybody's lookin' for love
So baby come a rockin'; the moonlight's slippin' away

While the little elves are workin' and the kids are in bed
Reindeer are flyin' way up over our heads
Everything is peaceful
The stars are clear and bright
We're gonna throw a party, celebrate the new year
Just get some 38 Special holiday cheer
This house will be a-rockin' on a wild-eyed Christmas night.

So baby, get ready, get dressed, it's time to rock
Once the music starts pumpin', you won't be able to stop
Right about quarter to four
Just when we can't take anymore
He'll be comin' down the chimney, just when we're ready to drop

While the little elves are workin' and the kids are in bed
Reindeer are flyin' way up over our heads
Everything is peaceful
The stars are clear and bright
We're gonna throw a party, celebrate the new year

It's Christmas And I Miss You-38 Special

It's Christmas and I miss you
Your memory
Still lingers on
You're not really gone
And this message
Will find you
Through space and time
This love lives on
Here and beyond

And I will hear you
When Christmas bells are ringing
I will touch you
Though we're far apart
And I will feel you
When I hear the voices singing
Like magic when I'm dreaming
You are here
An angel in my heart.
But it's Christmas and I miss you
How simple it used to be
Just you and me

But when the bells ring
I will hear you in the music
When the angels sing
It will be our song
I will call you
With a love across the ages
I find the words beyond the pages
To describe my love
But it's Christmas and I miss you

No one can tell where this road will lead
I guess we should follow our hearts
I'm not sure of much, but I know one thing
Nothing can keep us apart

And I will hear you
When Christmas bells are ringing
I will touch you
Though we're far apart
And I will feel you
When I hear the voices singing
You're a shining star burning in my heart
And when the bells ring
I will hear you in the music
When the angels sing
It will be our song
And I will hold you
With a love across the ages
I find the words beyond the pages
To describe my love

It's Christmas and I miss you

Hallelujah! It's Christmas-38 Special

Christmas lights out in the yard
A wreath hung our door
There was Christmas music on the radio
And I stare outside my window
Waiting for Santa to come
I couldn't wait to see under our tree when
Santa's work was done

Singing Hallelujah it's Christmas
Everybody all over the world tonight
Singing Hallelujah it's Christmas
It's Christmastime again

All year long I tried to be
As good as I could be
Just a boy with all the childhood dreams
And I sit down and write,
"Dear Santa, don't forget to come my way.
I'll see you soon and please make room
for my guitar in your sleigh"

Singing Hallelujah it's Christmas
Everybody all over the world tonight
Singing Hallelujah it's Christmas
It's Christmastime again
Singing Hallelujah it's Christmas
People all sharin' their hearts tonight
Singing Hallelujah it's Christmas
It's Christmas all over the world

Have a happy Christmas
And make a joyful noise
Have a happy Christmas
From all us wild-eyed boys

I never got that pony
But they taught me to believe
That what means the most is only
To give more than receive
And if we could wish together
I'd wish the world in harmony
'Cause if Christmas could last forever
What better world it'd be

Singing Hallelujah it's Christmas
Everybody all over the world tonight
Singing Hallelujah it's Christmas
It's Christmastime again
Singing Hallelujah it's Christmas
Hallelujah Hallelujah
Hallelujah it's Christmas
It's Christmastime again

Singing Hallelujah it's Christmas
Everybody all over the world tonight
Singing Hallelujah it's Christmas
Everybody all over the world
Singing Hallelujah it's Christmas
People all sharin' their hearts tonight
Singing Hallelujah it's Christmas
It's Christmastime again
Singing Hallelujah it's Christmas
It's Christmastime again

Here Comes Santa Claus-38 Special

Here comes Santa Claus!
Here comes Santa Claus!
Right down Santa Claus Lane!
Vixen and Blitzen and all his reindeer
are pulling on the reins.
Bells are ringing, children singing;
All is merry and bright.
Hang your stockings and say your prayers,
'Cause Santa Claus comes tonight.

Here comes Santa Claus!
Here comes Santa Claus!
Right down Santa Claus Lane!
He's got a bag that is filled with toys
for the boys and girls again.
Hear those sleigh bells jingle jangle,
What a beautiful sight.
Jump in bed, cover up your head,
'Cause Santa Claus comes tonight.


Jingle Bell Rock-38 Special

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

Giddy-up, jingle horse
Pick up your feet
Jingle around the clock
Mix and mingle
In a jinglin' beat
That's the jingle bell rock

Happy Xmas (War Is Over)-Jimmy Buffett

And so this is Christmas, and what have you done?
Another year older, a new one just begun
And so this is Christmas, I hope you have fun
The near and the dear ones, the old and the young
A merry, merry Christmas and a happy new year
Let's hope it's a good one, without any fears
And so this is Christmas, for weak and for strong
The rich and the poor ones, the road is so long

And so, happy Christmas, for black and for white.
The yellow and red ones, and stop all the fights
A merry, merry Christmas and a Happy New Year
Let's hope it's a good one, without any fears

And so, this is Christmas, and what have we done?
Another year older, a new one just begun
And so, happy Christmas, I hope you have fun
The near and the dear ones, the old and the young
A merry, merry Christmas and a Happy New Year
Let's hope it's a good one, without any fears

A Sailor's Christmas-Jimmy Buffett

Sail on the horizons gotta landfall rendezvous
Captain steers a well-known course, he steers straight & true
As he trims the sheets, he sings a song
He learned on boats and bars
Sailor spends his Christmas in a harbour 'neath the stars

He's traveled through the doldrums, typhoons and hurricanes
He's logged a million soggy miles with water on his brain
But Christmas is the season better suited for dry land
He'll tell some lies, meet some spies
And dance barefoot in the sand

The sailor spends his Christmas in a harbour on the hook
Caye con les, no work today, let's shell the ol' log book
The waterfront is reveling, the season has begun
The sailor spends his Christmas in a harbour having fun.

There's a party down at Le Selecte, music, rum and cheers
Faces in the shadows, God, I haven't seen for years
A mast & shroud fill with lights
'Neath the waning of the moon
They're an airy celebration in the realm of King Neptune.

The sailor spends his Christmas in a harbour on the hook
Caye con les, no work today, let's shell the ol' log book
The waterfront is reveling, the season has begun
The sailor spends his Christmas in a harbour having fun.

Jesus was a fisherman who walked upon the sea
The North Pole is ocean's remote frozen balcony
The continents keep drifting but the children sing and play
'Cause nothing really matters, after all it's Christmas day

The sailor spends his Christmas in a harbour on the hook.
Vaye con les, no work today, he read it in a book
The waterfront is reveling, the season has begun
A sailor spends his Christmas in a harbour having fun
A sailor spends his Christmas in a harbour having fun
Havin' fun... havin' fun...havin' fun

Christmas Island-Jimmy Buffett

Let's get away from sleigh bells, let's get away from snow
Let's make a break some Christmas, Dear, I know the place to go
How'd ya like to spend Christmas on Christmas Island?
How'd ya like to spend the holiday away across the sea?
How'd ya like to spend Christmas on Christmas Island?
How'd ya like to hang a stocking on a great big coconut tree?

How'd ya like to stay up late, like the islanders do?
Wait for Santa to sail in with your presents in a canoe.
If you ever spend Christmas on Christmas Island
You will never stray for everyday
Your Christmas dreams come true.

How'd ya like to stay up late like the islanders do?
Wait for Santa to sail in with your presents in a canoe
If you ever spend Christmas on Christmas Island
You will never stray, for everyday
Your Christmas dreams come true
On Christmas Island your dreams come true.

Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas-Train



Have yourself a merry little Christmas
Let your heart be light
From now on our troubles will be out of sight

Have yourself a merry little Christmas
Make the yuletide gay
From now on our troubles will be miles away

Here we are as in olden days
Happy golden days of yore
Faithful friends, who are dear to us
Gather near to us once more

Through the years we all will be together
If the fates allow
Hang a shining star upon the highest bough
And have yourself a merry little Christmas now

Here we are as in olden days
Happy golden days of yore
Faithful friends, who are dear to us
Gather near to us once more

Through the years we all will be together
If the fates allow
So hang a shining star upon the highest bough
And have yourself a merry little Christmas now

The River-Train



It's coming on Christmas
They're cutting down trees
They're putting up reindeer
And singing songs of joy and peace
Oh I wish I had a river
I could skate away on

Well it don't snow here
It stays pretty green
I'm going to make a lot of money
Then I'm going to quit this crazy scene
I wish I had a river
I could skate away on

I wish I had a river so long
I would teach my feet to fly
Oh I wish I had a river
I could skate away on
I made my baby cry

She tried hard to help me
You know, she put me at ease
And she loved me so naughty
Made me weak in the knees
I wish I had a river
I could skate away on

But I'm so hard to handle
I'm selfish and I'm sad
Now I've gone and lost the best baby
That I ever had
I wish I had a river
I could skate away on

I wish I had a river so long
I would teach my feet to fly

Oh I wish I had a river
I could skate away on
I made my baby say goodbye

It's coming on Christmas
They're cutting down trees
They're putting up reindeer
And singing songs of joy and peace
I wish I had a river
I could skate away on

Christmas Must Be Tonight-Train



Come down to the manger, see the little stranger
Wrapped in swaddling clothes, the prince of peace
The wheels start turning, torches start burning
And the whole wise men journey from the east

How a little baby boy bring the people so much joy
Son of a carpenter, Mary carried the light
This must be Christmas, must be tonight

A shepherd on the hillside, went over my flock I bide
On a cold winter night, a band of Angels sing
In a dream I heard a voice say, "Fear not, come rejoice
It's the end of the beginning, praise the new born King"

How a little baby boy bring the people so much joy
Son of a carpenter, Mary carried the light
This must be Christmas, must be tonight

I saw it with my own eyes, written up in the skies
Why a simple herdsmen such as I
And then it came to pass, he was born at last
Right below the star that shines on high

How a little baby boy bring the people so much joy
Son of a carpenter, Mary carried the light
This must be Christmas, must be tonight
Son of a carpenter, Mary carried the light
This must be Christmas, must be tonight
Be tonight, be tonight
Be tonight, be tonight
Be tonight, be tonight
