Lyrics

Santa, What Do You Have in Mind

Written By: Juan Oskar & Bridget Maynes

Copyright 2005 by: JM & BM
(Verse) I'll be feeling grim, then he'll pass a grin, That only his reindeer see
Santa, What do you have in mind?
We'll be on his sleigh, and we'll play all day,
Snow will be flying everywhere!
Santa, What do you have in mind?
(Chorus) We'll be dashing through the snow, With all the lights a glow
Singing carols all the merry way
We're sipping on champagne
Riding down Candy Cane Lane
I'll help him wrap up all the gifts He winks at me, I'm on his list!
(Verse) I'm feeling pretty swell, Don’t ask me I won’t tell, but
He lets me jingle all the bells!
Santa, What do you have in mind?
(Instrumental Section)
(Chorus) I’ll be dancing with his elf, When Santa's by himself
making a list of the good boys and girls.
He delivers all the toys, Not making too much noise
Cookies made with sugar & spice He gives me one, he knows I've been nice!
(Verse) Christmas Eve is through, I think I've got a clue,
Now I know just what to do!
Santa, What do you have in mind?!

Chevy Bells

Written By: Jingle Bells P.D. Lyrics & Adapted by:J.M.


Driven to the lay,
In my “62 Chevrolet...
Over the streets I go,
It’s the streets that got the beat.

Bells on my car ring,
Making spirits bright,
What fun it is to drive a thing
A two door swing a ling.

Chevy Bells
Chevy Bells
In the bright red coat I wear,
Oh what fun it is to ride in my
Hard top Coupe Belair.

Chevy Bells
Chevy Bells
Four speed all the way
Oh what fun this Navidad
In my Chevy Coupe all day.

Christmas is for Grownups Too

Written By: Copyright 1982 by: Jay Maynes

It’s here once more
the holiday, as kids we waited for.
We’re grown-ups now
and still the lights and tinsel
make us feel like we’re children again.

But remember this, there’s something
more we wish,
than the box with the bright red bow.

You see we’re all grown
and so much more prone,
to fantasies that only love can bring.

So here’s a thought, just for us,
since we’re not kids any more.
It’s Christmas time in our paradise

So let’s you and me sit by our Christmas tree,
cause Christmas if for Grownups Too.
