Holly and Mistletoe - Lyrics

A
The holly and the mistletoe,
The lights on the tree,
The glow in the fireplace
Is Christmas time for me.
The cards on the mantlepiece,
The gifts round the tree,
The old Advent calendar is Christmas time for me.

B
Christmas time is the season to celebrate,
Christmas time is the reason to sing.
Christmas time is the season to celebrate,
Christmas time is a wonderful reason to sing!

Midnight - Lyrics

Midnight,
there’s the strangest feeling in the air tonight,
There’s something going on but I can’t make it out,
I wonder what it’s all about?
Star light, breaking through the darkness in the dead of night,
Illuminates the path that takes you out of sight,
and all the way to Bethlehem.

Tonight’s events were planned in heaven,
the greatest story ever penned.
Heaven and earth have come together,
and life has come to Bethlehem

Angels – taking care of things that only they can do,
Are waiting in the wings to bring the joyful news,
it’s going to turn the world around.
Strangers – having made arrangements for a night or two,
Have found accommodation in the crowded rooms;
the house in packed in Bethlehem.

CHORUS

Shepherds – minding their own business looking after things,
Are startled by an unexpected happening,
as angel choirs appear to them.
Wise men – taking charts and telescopes and compasses,
Investigate the star that takes them travelling,
until they come to Bethlehem.

CHORUS X2… and life has come to Bethlehem

Hope Lyrics

Hope is the way through the deepest maze.
Hope is the road to freedom.
Hope is the dream that we hold onto
When the troubles are hard and when we feel low.
Hope is the friend we need around
When life is changing like it’s never changed before.
Hope takes us through the darkness –
Brings us to the light.
It’s been a brother and a sister to me.

Hope is the way through the deepest maze.
(Showing the way we have to go)
Hope is the road to freedom.
(It is setting all the prisoners free)
Hope is the dream that we hold onto
(Giving us light)
When the troubles are hard and when we feel low.
(When the troubles are so hard and when we feel so low)
Hope is the friend we need around
(Friends will always be around to help us)
When life is changing like it’s never changed before.
(Friends will always be around).
Hope takes us through the darkness –
Brings us to the light.
(Brings us to the light)
It’s been a brother and a sister to me.
(It’s been a brother and a sister to me).

UNISON
Hope is the friend that we need around
When life is changing like it’s never changed before.
Hope takes us through the darkness –
Brings us to the light.
It’s been a brother and a sister to me.

My Christmas Stocking - Lyrics

My Christmas stocking is special,
It’s red and it’s green and it’s gold,
I’ve had it since I was a baby,
So now it is ever so old!
I’ve hung it up next to the fireplace,
It’s waiting – all empty and flat!
But, when I wake up in the morning,
Please let it be bulging and fat (Oh, please!)
Let it be bulging and fat!

Christmas Everyday - Lyrics

When the snowman brings the snow
Oh, well he just might like to know
He’s put a great big smile
On somebody’s face
If you jump into your bed
Quickly cover up your head
Don’t you lock the doors
You know that sweet Santa Claus is on the way

Oh well, I wish it could be Christmas everyday
When the kids start singing and the band begins to play
Oh, I wish it could be Christmas everyday
So let the bells ring out for Christmas

When you’re skating in the park
If the storm cloud paints it dark
Then your rosy cheeks gonna light
My merry way Now the frosticals appeared
And they’ve frozen up my beard
And so we’ll lie by the fire
Till the sleep simply melts them all away

Oh well, I wish it could be Christmas everyday
When the kids start singing and the band begins to play
Oh, I wish it could be Christmas everyday
So let the bells ring out for Christmas

When the snowman brings the snow
Oh, well he just might like to know
He’s put a great big smile
On somebody’s face
So if Santa brings the sleigh
All along the Milky Way
I’ll sign my name on the rooftop in the snow
Then he may decide to stay

Oh well, I wish it could be Christmas everyday
When the kids start singing and the band begins to play
Oh, I wish it could be Christmas everyday
So let the bells ring out for Christmas

Why don’t you give your love for Christmas?

Jingle Bell Round - Lyrics

A
Riding through the forest
On a one-horse open sleigh;
Shouting to the folks we know
And laughing all the way!
Friends come out to greet us,
As we’re gliding through the snow,
All dressed up for winter
And singing as we go….

B
Jingle Bells, jingle bells,
Jingle all the way!
Oh, what fun it is to ride
On a one-horse open sleigh – hey! X2

Christmas Cacophony - Lyrics

The holly and the ivy,
When they are both full-grown,
Of all the trees
That are in the wood
The holly bears the crown.
Oh, the rising of the sun and
The running of the deer,
The playing of the merry organ
Sweet-singing in the choir!

1) Christmas, Christmas, happy happy Christmas! X2
2) Deck the hall with boughs of holly – tra-la-la!
3) Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way!
4) Good King Wenceslas looked out – he looked out all day!

Jingle Bell Rock - Lyrics

Jingle-bell, Jingle-bell, Jingle-bell rock,
Jingle-bell swing and Jingle-bells ring,
Snowin’ an’ blowin’ up bushels of fun,
Now the Jingle-bell hop has begun!
Jingle-bell, Jingle-bell, Jingle-bell rock,
Jingle-bells chime in Jingle-bell time,
Dancin’ an’ 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!

Ding dong! - Lyrics

Ding-dong merrily on high,
In heaven, the bells are ringing!
Ding-dong verily the sky
Is riven with angels singing!

A big, fat, Christmas round! - Lyrics

A) I love to eat, at Christmas, puds and pies and turkey roast!
B) Parsnips and potatoes – they’re the things I love the most!
C) A tin of sweets, some choc’late coins and lots of sugary stuff!
D) I’d keep on eating choc’late ‘till I think I’ve had enough!

Together At Christmas - Lyrics

Standing together as Christmas is near,
The waiting is finally over.
Now that the time for the snowflakes is here,
We can all sing to each other. (twice)
Now that Christmas is finally here.
Time to reflect on the year.
Finding hope at this Christmas time.
Stand together at Christmas time.

So ring the bells and sing together at Christmas time.

So ring the bells and sing together at Christmas time. (Christmas time, Christmas time)

Presents are wrapped, Christmas cards on the wall,
Music and dancing around us.
Twinkling lights as the snow starts to fall,
Tinsel and trees and the Santas!

Now that Christmas is finally here.
Time to reflect on the year.
Finding hope at this Christmas time.
Stand together at Christmas time.
So ring the bells and sing together at Christmas time.

So ring the bells and sing together at Christmas time. (Christmas time, Christmas time)
Hear the sounds of Christmas chimes,
Now we know it’s Christmas time.
Sing together at Christmas time,
Sing together at Christmas time.
Sing together at Christmas time,
Sing together at Christmas time.
So ring the bells and sing together at Christmas time.

So ring the bells and sing together at Christmas time.
(Solo) Standing together as Christmas is near. We can all sing to each other.

Sing Up - It’s Christmas! - Lyrics

Can you feel the magic all around?
Jingling, tingling, festive sights and sounds.
Lights twinkle on the Christmas tree,
Presents are wrapped for you and me.
Wonder what’s inside,
You’ll have to wait and see…

What Christmas Means to Me! - Lyrics

Ba ba ba ba ba, Oh yeah!
Candles burning low
Lots of mistletoe
Lots of snow and ice
Everywhere we go
Choirs singing carols
Right outside my door
All these things and more
(All these things and more)

That’s what Christmas means to me my love
(That’s what Christmas means to me my love) Oh yeah!
I see your smiling face
Like I never seen before
Even though I love you madly
It seems I love you more
And little cards you give me
Will touch my heart for sure
All these things and more (x2)
That’s what Christmas means to me, my love (x2)

I feel like running wild
As anxious as a little child
Greet you ‘neath the mistletoe
Kiss you once and then some more
I wish you a Merry Christmas, baby
(I Wish you a Merry Christmas, baby)
And such happiness in the comin’ year (x2)
Let’s deck the halls with holly
Sing sweet silent night
Fill the tree with angel hair
And pretty, pretty lights
Go to sleep and wake up
Just before daylight
All these things and more (x2)
That’s what Christmas means to me, my love (x2)
All these things and more (x2)
That’s what Christmas means to me, my love (x2)

means to me, means to me,
(Ba ba ba ba ba, Ba ba ba ba ba)
That’s what Christmas, Christmas means to me!

Silver Sleigh Ride - Lyrics
When the world is white with winter weather,
That’s the time we take to get together
Gliding, riding, sliding on the silver sleigh!
Snowflakes falling all in mounds around us
Like a blanket on the ground around us
Gliding, riding, sliding on the silver sleigh!

Now and then the fall of an icicle
Hits your face with a PLOP!
Happy, laughing, singing, joking
We never want to stop!

See the robin bobbin’ up to greet us,
If we’re lost Jack Frost will come and greet us,
Gliding, riding, sliding on the silver sleigh.
What a wonderful way to spend a holiday!

Abiyoyo - Lyrics
Ah-bee-yo!
A Starry Night - Lyrics

It was on a starry night,
when the hills were bright
Earth lay sleeping, sleeping calm and still.
Then in a cattle shed,
in a manger bed a boy was born,
king of all the world.

Chorus:
And all the angels sang for him,
the bells of heaven rang for him
for a boy was born,
king of all the world. X2
Soon the shepherds came that way
where the baby lay and were kneeling,
kneeling by his side.
And their hearts believed again
for the peace of men,
for a boy was born,
king of all the world.

Chorus:

The Animals in the Stable - Lyrics

The donkey stood in the stable,
The donkey stood in the stall,
The donkey saw the baby Jesus,
But all he could say was – ‘Ee-Aw!’

The mice they scurried…but all they could say was, ‘Eek, eek!’

The cattle stood…….but all they could say was, ‘Moo,moo!’

The chickens pecked in the….but all they could say was, Cluck, cluck!’

The animals stood….but all they could say was… (choose the sound)!

The Snowman Song - Lyrics

Mum, I need a carrot for my snowman’s nose,
Snowman’s nose, for my snowman’s nose!
Mum, I need a carrot for my snowman’s nose,
Or else how will he smell?

Now I need some raisins for my snowman’s eyes,
Snowman’s eyes, for my snowman’s eyes!
Now I need some raisins for my snowman’s eyes,
Or else how will he see?

Chorus:
There’s a snowman in my garden,
I hope he’s here to stay!
But, if the sun comes out tomorrow,
I guess he’ll melt away!

Now I need some sticks for my snowman’s hands, ….
Or else how will he wave?

Dad, I need a hat for my snowman’s head…..
Or else he might get cold!

Chorus:
There’s a snowman in my garden,
I hope he’s here to stay!
But, if the sun comes out tomorrow,
I guess he’ll melt away! X2
I guess he’ll melt away! X2

Christmas Dinner - Lyrics
The turkey’s on the table
And the sprouts are in the bowl!
The spuds are looking tasty
But the gravy’s getting cold!
The Christmas pud is steaming
And the stuffing’s in the dish
but, who will get the wishbone
To make a Christmas wish?

The turkey’s on the table
And the sprouts are in the bowl!
The spuds are looking tasty
But the gravy’s getting cold!
We ‘ve lit the Christmas candles,
We’re ready to begin
So, pull the Christmas crackers now
And join with us to sing:

‘We wish you a merry Christmas,
We wish you a merry Christmas,
We wish you a merry Christmas,
And a Happy New Year!’
