When A Child Is Born-Kenny Rogers

When a child is born

A ray of hope flickers in the sky
A tiny star lights up way up high
All across the land dawns a brand new morn'
This comes to pass when a child is born.

A silent wish sails the seven seas
The winds of change whisper in the trees
And the walls of doubt crumble, tossed and torn
This comes to pass when a child is born.

A rosy hue settles all around
You got the feel, you're on solid ground
For a spell or two no-one seems forlorn
This comes to pass when a child is born.

And all of this happens because the world is waiting
Waiting for one child, black, white, yellow - no one knows
But a child that will grow up and turn tears to laughter
Hate to love, war to peace and everyone to everyone's neighbour
And misery and suffering will be words to be forgotten, forever.

It's all a dream, an illusion now
It must come true sometime soon somehow
All across the land dawns a brand new morn'
This comes to pass when a child is born.

This comes to pass when a child is born.
Is born.
Is born...

O Holy Night-Kenny Rogers

White Christmas-Kenny Rogers



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.

May your days be merry and bright
And may all your Christmases be white.

Christmas Is My Favorite Time Of The Year-Kenny Rogers

How wise the wise men must have been
To find the child in Bethlehem
He lives again and draws us near
Christmas time is here

A tail of love that never dies
The laughter in the children's eyes
The child in me is always there
Christmas is my favorite time of year

The mist of wonder lies under my tree
The gift of memories is waiting for me

The day will come and soon depart
The spirit stays to hear my heart
With love for people everywhere
Christmas is my favorite time of the year
Christmas is my favorite time of the year

Sweet Little Jesus Boy-Kenny Rogers

(Swee-ee-ee-eet)

Sweet little Jesus boy
They made You be born in a manger
Sweet little Holy child
They didn't know who You were.

Didn't know You'd come to save us Lord
To take our sins away
Our eyes were blind
And we could not see
We didn't know who You were.

A long time ago
You were born in a manger, Lord
Sweet little Jesus Boy (Sweet Jesus boy)
Now the world treated You mean, Lord
And it's been treatin' me mean too
But that's how things are done now, yeah (Sweet)
We didn't know it was You.

You done told us how
And we are a-tryin'
Master, You done showed us how (how)
Even when you were dyin' (when you were dyin')
It just seems like we can't do right (do right)
Look how we treated you, yeah
Please, please, forgive us Lord
We didn't know it was you.

Sweet little Jesus boy (Sweet little Jesus)
Born a long time ago
Sweet little Holy child
We didn't know who You were...

Kids-Kenny Rogers

Kids, kids, Christmas is for kids
Look around and you will see
Kids from one to ninety-three
Laughin', lovin' life and bein' kids.

Kids, kids, Christmas is for kids
Kids like you and little brother
Aunts and uncles, dads and mothers
Grandma, grandpa an' all the other kids.

Daddy runs the 'lectric train
While all the children wait in vain
To take their turn
At playin' engineer.
Grandpa catches grandma's cheek
And all the family sneaks a peak
And suddenly
Their wrinkles disappear.

Take a look at Betty Joe
Underneath the mistletoe
Pretending that
She doesn't know it's there.
And in the front yard Uncle Mike
Just fell off brother's brand new bike
There's Christmas cheer
And laughter everywhere.

Kids (kids), kids (kids)
Christmas is for kids
Christmas time is here again
And now it's when the fun begins
This time of year we all turn into kids...

Carol Of The Bells-Kenny Rogers

Hark! how the bells, sweet silver bells
All seem to say, throw cares away
Christmas is here, bringing good cheer
To young and old, meek and the bold
Ding, dong, ding, dong, that is their song
With joyful ring, all carolling.

One seems to hear, words of good cheer
From everywhere, filling the air
Oh, how they pound, raising their sound
O'er hill and dale, telling their tail
Gaily they ring, while people sing
Songs of good cheer, Christmas is here.

Merry, merry, merry, merry Christmas
Merry, merry, merry, merry Christmas.

On, on they send, on without end
Their joyful tone, to every home
Hark! how the bells, sweet silver bells
All seem to say, throw cares away.

Christmas is here, bringing good cheer
To young and old, meek and the bold
Ding dong, ding, dong, that is their song
With joyful ring, all carolling
One seems to hear, words of good cheer
From everywhere, filling the air
O, how they pound, raising their sound
O'er hill and dale, telling their tail
Gaily they ring, while people sing
Songs of good cheer, Christmas is here.

Merry, merry, merry, merry Christmas
Merry, merry, merry, merry Christmas.

On, on they send, on without end
Their joyful tone, to every home
Hark! how the bells, sweet silver bells
All seem to say, throw cares away.

Hallelujah
Hallelujah - Christmas is here.
Hallelujah - Christmas is here.
Hallelujah - Christmas is here.
Hallelujah - Christmas is here.
Hallelujah - Christmas is here.
Hallelujah - Christmas is here.
Hallelujah - Christmas is here.
Hallelujah - Christmas is here...

Kentucky Homemade Christmas-Kenny Rogers

They shut down the mine last summer, we're gettin' by on welfare
It's Christmas Eve, I'm walkin' home, not a dollar to my name
Night is almost on me, a night I'm almost dreading
No store bought gifts to open, but there'll be Christmas just the same.

It's just another homemade Christmas in Kentucky
Just odds and ends I fashioned with my heart and with my hands
It's just another homemade Christmas in Kentucky
Our fine and fancy homemade love, God's precious gift from up above
Make up the homemade Christmas of this poor Kentucky man.

There's a brand new Barlow knife with a shiny wooden handle
Gleamin' in the window down at Galen Johnson's store
My wide eyed little Billy Boy, his face pressed to the window
Too young for understandin' what it means to be so poor.

It's just another homemade Christmas in Kentucky
Just odds and ends I fashioned with my heart and with my hands
It's just another homemade Christmas in Kentucky
Our fine and fancy homemade love, God's precious gift from up above
Make up the homemade Christmas of this poor Kentucky man.

Little Linda ain't no baby, hell she turns thirteen in April
She's been dreamin' about that dolly in the window for half her life
She's old enough to realize that it ain't never comin'
I'd damn near rob a bank to get that doll and Billy's knife.

It's just another homemade Christmas in Kentucky
Just odds and ends I fashioned with my heart and with my hands
It's just another homemade Christmas in Kentucky
Our fine and fancy homemade love, God's precious gift from up above
Make up the homemade Christmas of this poor Kentucky man.

Islands In The Stream - Dolly Parton & Kenny Rogers (with Instrumental cover by Burns Ernst)


Baby, when I met you
There was peace unknown
I set out to get you
With a fine tooth comb
I was soft inside
There was something going on

You do something to me
That I can't explain
Hold me closer and I feel no pain
Every beat of my heart
We got something going on
Tender love is blind
It requires a dedication
All this love we feel
Needs no conversation
We can ride it together, ah-ha
Making love with each other, ah-ha

Islands in the stream
That is what we are
No one in between
How can we be wrong
Sail away with me
To another world
And we rely on each other, ah-ha
From one lover to another, ah-ha

I can't live without you
If the love was gone
Everything is nothing
If you got no one
And you did walk in the night
Slowly losing sight of the real thing

But that won't happen to us
And we got no doubt
Too deep in love and we got no way out
And the message is clear
This could be the year for the real thing

No more will you cry
Baby, I will hurt you never

We start and end as one
In love forever
We can ride it together, ah-ha
Making love with each other, ah-ha

Islands in the stream
That is what we are
No one in between
How can we be wrong
Sail away with me
To another world
And we rely on each other, ah-ha
From one lover to another, ah-ha

Sail away

[Instrumental Interlude]

Ooooh, come sail away with me

Islands in the stream
That is what we are
No one in between
How can we be wrong
Sail away with me
To another world
And we rely on each other, ah-ha
From one lover to another, ah-ha

Islands in the stream
That is what we are
No one in between
How can we be wrong
Sail away with me
To another world
And we rely on each other, ah-ha
From one lover to another, ah-ha
