A Holiday to Remember

Written By: Audrey Malone & Michael Evans

A HOLIDAY TO REMEMBER
WINTER SNOWY SPLENDOR
A HOLIDAY TO REMEMBER
STORYBOOK DECEMBER

A SILVERY DISC
PARTNER AND SNOW
DOWN THE HILLSIDE
AWAY WE GO

GIGGLES AND LAUGHS
FLAT ON OUR BACKS
MAKING ANGELS
IN THE SNOW

HOPING THIS SEASON BRINGS
A HOLIDAY TO REMEMBER
WINTER SNOWY SPLENDOR
A HOLIDAY TO REMEMBER
STORYBOOK DECEMBER

GETTY UP & AWAY
IN OUR HORSE DRAWN SLEIGH
SINGING CAROLS
THE ENTIRE WAY

THE HUSH OF THE LAND
AS THE SNOWFLAKES DANCE
WALK TO THE INN
WHILE HOLDING YOUR HAND

HOPING THIS SEASON BRINGS
A HOLIDAY TO REMEMBER

A HOLIDAY TO REMEMBER

HOT COCOA NEAR A ROARING FIRE
FAMILY AND FRIENDS IN THEIR SLUMBER ATTIRE
ESKIMO KISS AS WE SAY GOODNIGHT
I WISH THIS WOULD NEVER END

HERE’S HOPING THIS SEASON BRINGS
HERE’S HOPING THIS SEASON BRINGS

HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO YOU…….

Twas' the Night

Written By: Audrey Malone & Michael Evans

TWAS THE NIGHT
SANTA CAME TO TOWN
IT WAS A SIGHT
TO WATCH HIM GET AROUND

THERE WAS A GREAT BIG OLE SNOW STORM
LEFT A BLANKET OF SNOW ON THE GROUND
WITH THE LIGHT OF RUDOLPH’S BRIGHT SHINY NOSE
YOU KNOW, HE CAN GUIDE THAT SLEIGH AROUND

NO MATTER WHAT HAPPENS
SANTA WON’T LET ANY ONE DOWN
IT WAS THE NIGHT
SANTA CAME TO TOWN

NOT A CREATURE WAS STIRRING
NO NOT EVEN A MOUSE
ALL WAS QUIET HUSHED
THROUGH THE WHOLE ENTIRE HOUSE

GOT A BIG BATCH OF COOKIES
TALL COLD GLASS OF MILK
AFTER SANTA VISITS
HE’LL HAVE TO LOOSEN UP HIS BELT

NO MATTER WHAT HAPPENS
SANTA WON’T LET ANY ONE DOWN
IT WAS THE NIGHT
SANTA CAME TO TOWN

I LIKE THOSE BEARING GIFTS
OF THOSE I SAVOUR
WHEN IT COMES TO WHAT I WANT
YOU KNOW SANTA CLAUS IS IN MY FAVOUR

HE’S PRIVE TO MY SECRETS
KNOWS MY HEARTS DESIRE
WHEN HE COMES DOWN MY CHIMNEY
I HOPE HE DON’T CATCH ON FIRE

NO MATTER WHAT HAPPENS
SANTA WON’T LET ANY ONE DOWN
IT WAS THE NIGHT
SANTA CAME TO TOWN

NEW YORK, PARIS, LONDON
AUSTRALIA WAY DOWN UNDER
SANTA WON’T MISS ONE SINGLE PLACE
HE’S A WORLD WIDE TRAVELING WONDER

I HOPE THE REAL SANTA SHOWS UP THIS YEAR
NOT ANOTHER HOMELESS MAN WITH A BEARD
CAUSE WHEN I LEAN OVER AND WHISPER
I WANT IT TO BE IN THE RIGHT EAR

NO MATTER WHAT HAPPENS
SANTA WON’T LET ANY ONE DOWN
IT WAS THE NIGHT
SANTA CAME TO TOWN

Baboushka

Written By: Audrey Malone & Michael Evans

THERE WAS AN OLD WOMAN
WHO HAD NO FAMILY
LIVED ALONE IN A GREAT BIG HOUSE
WITH NOT MUCH COMPANY

ALL SHE COULD PONDER
WAS CLEANING AND CHORES
TENDING TO HER PROPERTY
ALL ELSE SHE IGNORED

ON A CHILLY EVE
WHILE SHE WAS SCRUBBING FLORS
3 WISE MEN PASSED BY
ON THE WAY TO SEE THE LORD

COME AND GO BABOUSHKA
SEE THE HOLY KING BABOUSHKA

NO NEED TO TRAVEL WEARY
COME REST FOR THE NIGHT
BUT THE BIG BRIGHT STAR
THEY TRAVELLED BY
WAS ONLY SEEN AT NIGHT

ALL SHE COULD PONDER
WAS CLEANING AND CHORES
BUT LEFT ALONE WITH WHAT THEY SAID
SHE COULD NOT IGNORE

COME AND GO BABOUSHKA
SEE THE NEWBORN KING BABOUSHKA

TRAVELLING THE WORLD ORE
TO THIS VERY DAY
BABOUSHKA BEARING GIFTS
STILL SEARCHING FOR THE BABE.

Dreamin' of Santa

Written By: Audrey Malone & Michael Evans

BLACK AS COAL BOOTS
IN A RED VELVET SUIT
A JOLLY OLE SOUL IS HE

WORKING ALL THROUGH THE NIGHT
AS CHILDREN SLEEP TIGHT
DREAMING OF WHAT CHRISTMAS BRINGS

CANDY AND TOYS
FOR ALL GIRLS AND BOYS
OH DID I WAKE FROM MY DREAM
ON HIS MAGICAL SLEIGH
HE’LL MAKE CHRISTMAS DAY
THE BEST ONE I’VE EVER SEEN

DREAMING OF SANTA
OH WHERE CAN YOU BE
HAVE YOU COME AND GONE
BROUGHT PRESENTS ALONG
DID YOU LEAVE ONE UNDER THE TREE

DREAMING OF SANTA
OH WHERE CAN YOU BE
HAVE YOU COME AND GONE
BROUGHT PRESENTS ALONG
IS THERE ONE JUST FOR ME

WIGGLES HIS NOSE
DOWN THE CHIMNEY HE GOES
QUIET AS HE CAN BE

WORKING ALL THROUGH THE NIGHT
AS CHILDREN SLEEP TIGHT
DREAMING OF WHAT CHRISTMAS BRINGS

CANDY AND TOYS
FOR ALL GIRLS AND BOYS
OH DID I WAKE FROM MY DREAM
ON HIS MAGICAL SLEIGH
HE’LL MAKE CHRISTMAS DAY
THE BEST ONE I’VE EVER SEEN

Child of Mary

Written By: Audrey Malone & Michael Evans

A CHILD WAS BORN OF MARY
HE CAME TO SAVE THE WORLD
ANGELS HARKENED ROUND THE CHILD
IT’S SAID HIS NAME IS JESUS

3 WISE MEN
FOLLOWED A DISTANT STAR
GATHERED ROUND THE NEWBORN KING
BEARING GIFTS FROM AFAR

SON OF GOD
BORN OF MAN
THE UNIVERSE PROCLAIMS
HEAVEN ON EARTH
HALLOWED BE
JESUS IS THY NAME

SHEPARDS BIDING FLOCKS BY NIGHT
FEAR NOT THE ANGEL OF THE LORD
UNTO YOU BORN THIS VERY DAY
A SAVIOUR, CHRIST THE LORD

SON OF GOD
BORN OF MAN
THE UNIVERSE PROCLAIMS
HEAVEN ON EARTH
HALLOWED BE
JESUS IS THY NAME

PEACE ON EARTH
GOODWILL TO MEN
THE ANGELSS DIDPROCLAIM
HEAVEN ON EARTH
HALLOWED BE
JESUS IS THY NAME

This Christmas

Written By: Audrey Malone & Michael Evans

CHRISTMAS IS HERE, MY DEAR
FILLED WITH ALL THE JOY AND CHEER
BEAUTIFUL SCENES EVERYWHERE
TIME FOR LOVE AND TO SHARE

COMING HOME TO THIS SPECIAL PLACE
I WANT TO SEE YOUR SMILING FACE
WISHING YOU WERE HERE WITH ME
WITHOUT YOU, HERE THIS CHRISMAS

ALL THE PRESENTS UNDER THE TREE
DON’T MEAN A THING TO ME
WITHOUT YOU HERE THIS CHRISTMAS

EVERGREENS LIT STRING BY STRING
BELLS TOLL , CAROLERS SING
SNOWFLAKES ARE FALLING DOWN
WITH HOPE YOU’LL SOON BE AROUND

ALL THE PRESENTS UNDER THE TREE
DON’T MEAN A THING TO ME
WITHOUT YOU HERE THIS CHRISTMAS

SOLO

ALL THE PRESENTS UNDER THE TREE
DON’T MEAN A THING TO ME
WITHOUT YOU HERE THIS CHRISTMAS

REMINISCING OF CHRISTMAS PAST
MAKING MEMORIES THAT WILL ALWAYS LAST
THINKING OF ALL THE THINGS THAT HAVE CHANGED
WISHIN YOU WERE HERE WITH ME
WITH OUT YOU. HERE. THIS CHRISMAS

ALL THE PRESENTS UNDER THE TREE
DON’T MEAN A THING TO ME
WITHOUT YOU HERE
WITHOUT YOU HERE
WITHOUT YOU HERE THIS CHRISTMAS

The Present

Written By: Audrey Malone & Michael Evans

WHAT A BEAUTIFUL CHRISTMAS TREE
SITTING UNDERNEATH IS LITTLE OLE ME
TIED UP WITH A BOW
WAITING FOR YOU TO UNWRAP ME

I HEAR THE BELLS OF SANTA’S SLEIGH
COULD BE MORE PRESENTS ON THE WAY
I AM REALLY GOOD
SAVE ME TIL CHRISTMAS DAY

SOME ARE ADORNED WITH SHINY COLORED PAPERS
OR HAVE FANCY BOWS
BUT A GIFT FROM THE HEART
BRINGS JOY TO THE SOUL
WHEN FEELINGS OF LOVE ARE SHOWN

YOU CAN PLAY PEEK A BOO
YOU CAN’T SEE ME
I KNOW IT’S YOU
WAITED OH SO LONG
TO BE IN THE ARMS WHERE I BELONG

I HEAR THE BELLS OF SANTA’S SLEIGH
COULD BE MORE PRESENTS ON THE WAY
I AM REALLY GOOD
SAVE ME TIL CHRISTMAS DAY

Who's That

Written By: Audrey Malone & Michael Evans

WHO’S GONNA GET THERE STOCKING FILLED
WHO’S THAT, WHO’S THAT, WHO’S THAT
COULD IT BE A BOY NAMED TOM OR A GIRL NAMED JILL
SANTA’S COMING TO PAINT THE TOWN
IT’S RED AND GREEN WHERE TINSEL BEAMS
FROM THE STARS SHINING DOWN

HE’S COMING, COME IN

WITH A ZIG ZAG, CLICKETY CLACK
WHO’S THAT, WHO’S THAT, WHO’S THAT
WHO’S THAT

HAS SANTA BEEN HERE,
BEEN HERE, BEEN THERE, BEEN ANYWHERE
HE’S REALLY QUICK, HE’S SUPER SLICK
THAT SNEAKY OLD ST. NICK

SANTA’S CHECKING OUT EVERONE IN TOWN
IF OU’RE ON HIS LIST YOU WON’T BE MISSED
HE’L LA THEM PRESENTS DOWN

HE’S COMING, COME IN

WITH A ZIG ZAG, CLICKETY CLACK
WHO’S THAT, WHO’S THAT, WHO’S THAT
WHO’S THAT

HE’S COMING , COME IN
