Little Drummer Boy

Katherine Davis/Henry Onorati/Harry Simeone

 

Come, they told me, pa rum pum pum pum
A 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

Little baby, 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
To lay before the 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 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

 
 
 
God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen

Traditional

 
God rest ye merry gentlemen, let nothing you dismay
Remember Christ our Savior was born on Christmas day
To save us all from Satan's power when we were gone astray
O tidings of comfort and joy

From God our heavenly Father a blessed angel came
And unto certain shepherds brought tiding to the same
How that in Bethlehem was born the Son of God by name
O tidings of comfort and joy
Comfort and joy
O tidings of comfort and joy

Remember Christ our Savior was born on Christmas day
O tidings of comfort and joy
Comfort and joy
O tidings of comfort and joy

God rest ye merry gentlemen, let nothing you dismay
Remember Christ our Savior was born on Christmas day

Repeat
 
 
 

Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas

Hugh Martin/Ralph Blane

 

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 Yule-tide 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

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

Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas
And have yourself a merry little Christmas now

 
 
 

The Christmas Song

Robert Wells/Mel Torne

 

Chestnuts roasting on an open fire
Jack Frost nipping at your nose
Yule-tide 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 ev'ry mother's child is gonna spy
To see if reindeer really know how to fly

So, I'm offering this simple phrase
To kids from 1 to 92
Although it's been said many times, many ways,
Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas to you
Merry Christmas, yeah

 
 
 

O Come All Ye Faithful

Traditional

 

O come, all ye faithful, joyful and triumphant
O come ye, o come ye to Bethlehem
Come and behold him, born the King of angels
O come let us adore Him, O come let us adore Him,
O come let us adore Him, Christ the lord

Sing choirs of angels, sing in exultation
Sing all ye citizens of heaven above
Glory to God, in highest glory
O come let us adore Him, O come let us adore Him,
O come let us adore Him, Christ the lord

Yea, Lord, we greet thee, born this happy morning
Jesus, to thee be glory given
Word of the Father, now in flesh appearing
O come let us adore Him, O come let us adore Him,
O come let us adore Him, Christ the lord

 
 
 

Child's Prayer

Lee Loughnane/John Durrill

 

Now I lay me down before I sleep
Pray the Lord my soul to keep
Stay with me, Jesus, through the night
Till I wake in the morning light

Merry, merry, Christmas

Glory to the King

Now I lay me down before I sleep
Pray the Lord my soul to keep
Stay with me, Jesus, through the night
Till I wake in the morning light

Christmas day is coming

Glory to the King

(la, la, la, la ...)

Glory to the King

Glory, glory, glory

Glory to the King

Lord bless us all it's Christmas day
Peace on earth for this we pray
Love is a gift we all must give
Love is all (love is all) there is
Love is all (love is all) there is
Love is all (love is all) there is

Santa Claus Is Coming To Town

Haven Gillespie/Fred Coots

 

Saint Nick is comin', comin', comin'
The fat man's comin' to town
Saint Nick is comin', comin', comin'
He's gonna be bringin' it down, down, down

You better watch out
You better not cry
You better not pout, I'm telling you why
Santa Claus is coming, he's coming to town

Comin', comin', comin'
The fat man's comin' to town

He's making a list
He's checking it twice
He's gonna find who's naughty and nice
Santa Claus is coming, he's coming to town tonight

He sees you when you're sleeping
He knows when you're awake
He knows if you're been bad or good, so be good for goodness sake

Saint Nick is comin', comin', comin'
He's gonna be bringin' it down, down, down

You better be cool
Y'all gotta chill
You better behave, you all know the drill
Santa Claus is coming to town

He sees you when you're sleeping
He knows when you're awake
He knows if you're been bad or good, so be good for goodness sake

Saint Nick is comin', comin', comin'
The fat man's comin' to town
Saint Nick is comin', comin', comin'
He's gonna be bringin' it down, down, down

 
 
 

Christmas Time Is Here

Lee Mendelson/Vince Guraldi

 

Christmas time is here
Happiness and cheer
Fun for all
The children call their favorite time of year

Snowflakes in the air
Carols everywhere
Olden times
And ancient rhymes of love and dreams to share

Sleigh bells in the air
Beauty everywhere
Yule-tide by the fireside
And joyful memories there

Christmas time is here
Families drawing near
Oh that we could always see such spirit
Through the year

Sleigh bells in the air
Beauty everywhere
Yule-tide by the fireside
And joyful memories there
Christmas time is here
Families drawing near
Oh that we could always see such spirit
Through the year

 
 
 

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

S. Kahn/J. Styne

 

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

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

Well they finally kissed goodnight
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
But if you really hold me tight
All the way home I'd be warm

The fire is slowly dying
And my dear we're still goodbying
But as long as you me so
let it snow, let it snow, let it snow

Well they finally kissed goodnight
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
But if you really hold me tight
All the way home I'd be warm

The fire is slowly dying
And my dear we're still goodbying
But as long as you me so
let it snow, let it snow, let it snow

 
 
 

What Child Is This?

Traditional

 

An angel's song is sung
Mary's time has come to pass
The Lord will have a son
Wise men come to welcome home the child

What child is this, who, laid to rest, on Mary's lap, is sleeping?
Whom angels greet with anthems sweet, while shepherds watch are keeping?

This, this is Christ the King, whom shepherds guard and angels sing
Haste, haste to bring him laud, the Babe, the Son of Mary!

An angel's song is sung
Mary's time has come to pass

So bring Him incense, gold, and myrrh, come peasant king to own Him
The King of kings, salvation brings, let loving hearts enthrone Him.

Raise, raise the song on high, the Virgin sings her lullaby
Joy, joy, for Christ is born, the Babe, the Son of Mary!

An angel's song is sung
Wise men come to welcome home the child

What child is this, who, laid to rest, on Mary's lap, is sleeping?
Whom angels greet with anthems sweet, while shepherds watch are keeping?

An angel's song is sung
Mary's time has come to pass
The Lord will have a son
Wise men come to welcome home the child

 
 
 

White Christmas

Irving Berlin

 

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 ev'ry Christmas card I write
May your days be merry and bright
And may all your Christmases be white

I'm dreaming of a white Christmas
With ev'ry Christmas card I write
May your days be merry and bright
And may all your Christmases be white

 
 
 

Silent Night

Traditional

 

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, sleep in heavenly peace

 
 
 

One Little Candle

Larry Mysels/J. Mallay Roach

 

It is better to light just one little candle
Than to stumble in the dark.
Better far that you light just one little candle
All you need is a tiny spark.
If we'd all say a prayer that the world would be free
A wonderful dawn of a new day we'd see
And if everyone lit just one little candle
What a bright world this would be
What a bright world this would be
