Last Christmas

Last Christmas
I gave you my heart
But the very next day you gave it away.
This year
To save me from tears
I’ll give it to someone special.

Once bitten and twice shy
I keep my distance
But you still catch my eye.
Tell me, baby,
Do you recognize me?
Well,
It’s been a year,
It doesn’t surprise me
(Merry Christmas)

I wrapped it up and sent it
With a note saying, “I love you,”
I meant it
Now I know what a fool I’ve been.
But if you kissed me now
I know you’d fool me again.

[Chorus 2x]

Oh, oh, baby.

A crowded room,
Friends with tired eyes.
I’m hiding from you
And your soul of ice.
My god I thought you were someone to rely on.
Me? I guess I was a shoulder to cry on.

A face on a lover with a fire in his heart.
A man under cover but you tore me apart, ooh-hoo.
Now I’ve found a real love, you’ll never fool me again.

[Chorus 2x]

A face on a lover with a fire in his heart (I gave you my heart)
A man under cover but you tore him apart
Maybe next year I’ll give it to someone
I’ll give it to someone special.

Blue Christmas

I’ll have a Blue Christmas without you
I’ll be so blue thinking about you
Decorations of red on a green Christmas tree
Won’t be the same dear, if you’re not here with me

And the when those blue snowflakes start fallin’
That’s when those blue memories start callin’
You’ll be doin’ all right, with your Christmas of white
But I’ll have a blue, blue, blue, blue Christmas

Christmas Wrapping – Spice Girls

“Bah! Humbug” – no, that’s too strong
Cause it’s my favourite holiday
But all this year’s been a busy blur
Don’t think I have the energy
To add to my already mad rush
Just because it is the season
The perfect gift for me would be
Completions and connections left from
Last year, world tour, aeroplanes and babies
Met some guys but never the time
Most of ’98 passed along those lines
So deck the halls and trim those trees
Raise up the cups of Christmas cheer
I just need to catch my breath
Christmas with my mates this year

Calendar picture, frozen landscape
Chilled this room for twenty-four days
Evergreens, sparkling snow
Get this winter over with!
Flashback to springtime, saw him again
Would’ve been good to go for a lunch
Couldn’t agree we were both free
We tried, we said we’d keep in touch
We didn’t, of course, ’til the summertime
Out to the beach to his boat, could I join him?
No, this time it was me
Sunburn in the third degree
Now the calendar’s just one page
And, of course, I am excited
Tonight’s the night, but I’ve set my mind
Not to do too much about it

Merry Christmas! Merry Christmas!
But I think I’ll miss this one this year
Merry Christmas! Merry Christmas!
But I think I’ll miss this one this year

Hardly dashing through the snow
Cause I bundled up too tight
Last minute have-to-do’s
A few cards, a few calls
Because it’s R-S-V-P
No thanks, no party lights
It’s Christmas Eve, gonna relax
Turned down all of my invites
Last fall I had a night to myself
Same guy called, Halloween party
Waited all night for him to show
This time his car wouldn’t go
Forget it, it’s cold, it’s getting late
Trudge on home to celebrate
In a quiet way, unwind
Doing Christmas right this time

Merry Christmas! Merry Christmas!
But I think I’ll miss this one this year
Merry Christmas! Merry Christmas!
But I think I’ll miss this one this year

Tesco has provided me
With the world’s smallest turkey
Already in the oven, nice and hot
Oh damn, guess what I forgot?
So it’s on with the boots, back out in the snow
To the only all-night garage
But when to my wondering eyes should appear
In the line that guy I’ve been chasing all year
“Spending this one alone,” he said
“Need a break; this year’s been crazy.”
I said, “Me too, but why are you?
You mean you forgot the papers too?”
Then suddenly we laughed and laughed
Caught on to what was happening
Christmas magic’s brought this tale
To a very happy ending

Merry Christmas! Merry Christmas!
But I think I’ll miss this one this year
Merry Christmas! Merry Christmas!
But I think I’ll miss this one this year

Santa Baby

Santa Baby, slip a sable under the tree, For me.
been an awful good girl, Santa baby,
so hurry down the chimney tonight.

Santa baby, a 54 convertible too,
Light blue.
I’ll wait up for you dear,
Santa baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight.

Think of all the fun I’ve missed,
Think of all the fellas that I haven’t kissed,
Next year I could be just as good,
If you’ll check off my Christmas list,

Santa baby, I wanna yacht,
And really that’s not a lot,
Been an angel all year,
Santa baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight.

Santa honey, there’s one thing I really do need,
The deed
To a platinum mine,
Santa honey, so hurry down the chimney tonight.

Santa cutie, and fill my stocking with a duplex,
And checks.
Sign your ‘X’ on the line,
Santa cutie, and hurry down the chimney tonight.

Come and trim my Christmas tree,
With some decorations bought at Tiffany’s,
I really do believe in you,
Let’s see if you believe in me,

Santa baby, forgot to mention one little thing,
A ring.
I don’t mean on the phone,
Santa baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight,
Hurry down the chimney tonight,
Hurry, tonight.

A Very Minimum Wage Christmas – Sarah Jickling

Fa la la la la la la
Fa la la la la la la
Fa la la la la la la la la
(x2)
Someday we’ll spend Christmas with somebody who loves us
Instead of making drinks behind the counter of starbucks
Sorry all your family is giving out gifts
But you’re tough out of luck, cause you got the morning shift
But watcha gonna do?
We gotta work through New Years too
It’s the holidays, we gotta work or we won’t get paid
Merry Christmas to you
It’s the holidays, when you’re working minimum wage
Merry Christmas to you
Fa la la la la la la
Fa la la la la la la
Fa la la la la la la la la
(x2)
I know you really wanted that cool waterbed
I can’t afford a present so I made a card instead
The people at the mall are full of holiday cheer
But Christmas shopping’s not as fun when you’re the cashier
But I’ll still sing along to the same ten Christmas songs
It’s the holidays, we gotta work or we won’t get paid
Merry Christmas to you
It’s the holidays, when you’re working minimum wage
Merry Christmas to you
Fa la la la la la la
Fa la la la la la la
Fa la la la la la la la la

Don’t Kill Me, Santa – Sarah Jickling

Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse
Except me, I was lying in bed with a knife
Not a real one, of course, one made by fisher price
And all the other kids could not wait for Christmas
I would never tell, but I was scared shitless
Cause who’s that man with the jolly red face
Who’s gonna break into my house through the fire place

What’s that sound?
Could it be him?
Does he have gifts?
Or is he here to do me in?
I didn’t know, cause I was only six years old
But I was straight up terrified by the twinkle in his eye
Santa spare me, please don’t kill me
Santa let me live
Santa spare me, please don’t kill me
I am just a kid

Twas the week before Christmas and all through the mall
All the kids were lined up to see Santa Clause
And my mom says, “You go and you sit on his lap”
And I cry like I’m having a panic attack
All the other kids just wanted to hug him
Something wasn’t right and I just didn’t trust him
Cause I knew a thing about Stranger Danger
Who cares if he’s brought me a pink Power Ranger

What’s that sound?
Could it be him?
Does he have gifts?
Or is he here to do me in?
I didn’t know, cause I was only six years old
But I was straight up terrified by the twinkle in his eye

Santa spare me, please don’t kill me
Santa let me live
Santa spare me, please don’t kill me
I am just a kid
I’m just a kid
I’m just a kid

All I want for Christmas is You

I don’t want a lot for Christmas
There is just one thing I need
I don’t care about the presents
Underneath the Christmas tree
I just want you for my own
More than you could ever know
Make my wish come true oh
All I want for Christmas is you

I don’t want a lot for Christmas
There is just one thing I need, and I
Don’t care about the presents
Underneath the Christmas tree
I don’t need to hang my stocking
There upon the fireplace
Santa Claus won’t make me happy
With a toy on Christmas day

I just want you for my own
More than you could ever know
Make my wish come true
All I want for Christmas is you

I won’t ask for much this Christmas
I won’t even wish for snow, and I
I just wanna keep on waiting
Underneath the mistletoe

I won’t make a list and send it
To the North Pole for Saint Nick
I won’t even stay awake
To hear those magic reindeer click

‘Cause I just want you here tonight
Holding on to me so tight
What more can I do
Oh, Baby all I want for Christmas is you

All the lights are shining
So brightly everywhere
And the sound of children’s
Laughter fills the air

And everyone is singing
I hear those sleigh bells ringing
Santa won’t you bring me
The one I really need
Won’t you please bring my baby to me quickly

I don’t want a lot for Christmas
This is all I’m asking for
I just wanna see my baby
Standing right outside my door

I just want you for my own
More than you could ever know
Make my wish come true
Baby all I want for Christmas is you

All I want for Christmas is you, baby

Mele Kalikimaka

Mele Kalikimaka is the thing to say
On a bright Hawaiian Christmas day
That’s the island greeting that we send to you
From the land where palm trees sway

Here we know that Christmas will be green and bright
The sun will shine by day and all the stars at night
Mele Kalikimaka is Hawaii’s way
To say Merry Christmas to you

Run Run Rudolph

Out of all the reindeers you know you’re the mastermind
Run, run Rudolph, Randalph ain’t too far behind
Run, run Rudolph, Santa’s got to make it to town
Santa make him hurry, tell him he can take the freeway down
Run, run Rudolph ’cause I’m reelin’ like a merry-go-round

Said Santa to a boy child “What have you been longing for?”
“All I want for Christmas is a Rock and Roll electric guitar”
And then away went Rudolph a whizzing like a shooting star
Run, run Rudolph, Santa’s got to make it to town, come on
Santa make him hurry, tell him he can take the freeway down
Run, run Rudolph, reeling like a merry-go-round

Said Santa to a girl child “What would please you most to get?”
“A little baby doll that can cry, sleep, drink and wet”
And then away went Rudolph a whizzing like a Saber jet
Run, run Rudolph, Santa’s got to make it to town
Santa make him hurry, tell him he can take the freeway down
Run, run Rudolph ’cause I’m reelin’ like a merry-go-round

Rocking around the Christmas Tree

Rockin’ around the Christmas tree
At the Christmas party hop
Mistletoe hung where you can see
Every couple tries to stop

Rockin’ around the Christmas tree
Let the Christmas spirit ring
Later we’ll have some pumpkin pie
And we’ll do some carolling

You will get a sentimental feeling
When you hear
Voices singing let’s be jolly
Deck the halls with boughs of holly

Rockin’ around the Christmas tree
Have a happy holiday
Everyone dancing merrily
In the new old fashioned way

Feliz Navidad

Feliz Navidad
Feliz Navidad
Feliz Navidad
Prospero año y felicidad

Feliz Navidad
Feliz Navidad
Feliz Navidad
Prospero año y felicidad

I want to wish you a Merry Christmas
I want to wish you a Merry Christmas
I want to wish you a Merry Christmas
From the bottom of my heart

Grandma got run over by a Reindeer

Grandma got run over by a reindeer
Walking home from our house Christmas eve
You can say there’s no such thing as Santa
But as for me and Grandpa, we believe

She’d been drinking too much eggnog
And we’d begged her not to go
But she forgot her medication
And she staggered through the door out in the snow

When they found her Christmas morning
At the scene of the attack
She had hoof prints on her forehead
And incriminating Claus marks on her back

[Chorus]

Now were all so proud of Grandpa
He’s been taking this so well
See him in there watching football
Drinking beer and playing cards with cousin Mel

It’s not Christmas without Grandma
All the family’s dressed in black
And we just can’t help but wonder
Should we open up her gifts or send them back?

[Chorus]

Now the goose is on the table
And the pudding made of fig
And a blue and silver candles
That would just have matched the hair in Grandma’s wig

I’ve warned all my friends and neighbours
Better watch out for yourselves
They should never give a license
To a man who drives a sleigh and plays with elves

[Chorus]

Christmas in L.A. – Vulfpeck

On Christmas morning, on Christmas day
Kris Kringle’s driving a Chevrolet
He left his reindeer, he went down south
He just had to see what it’s all about

Wrapping presents out in the sun
Stuffing stockings, having some fun
Reading, writing, Christmas is here
California, Yuletide cheer

All the little children and all the big children, it’s Christmas (in L.A.)
All the ladies and all the little babies, it’s Christmas (in L.A.)
Even the gentlemen, every single one of them, Christmas (in L.A.)
In L.A.

Oh, everyone around the world
Every boy and every girl
It’s time to say
It’s time to say
It’s time to say
Out loud

All the little children and all the big children, it’s Christmas (in L.A.)
All the ladies and all the little babies, it’s Christmas (in L.A.)
Even the gentlemen, every single one of them, Christmas (in L.A.)
In L.A.

You gotta get down to Los Angeles
Cause this year that’s where Santa is

Silent Night, Funky Night

Silent Night
Funky Night
On the One
The beat feels right
When the groove pulls you to the dancefloor
Keep on dancing and we’ll play you some more
Then we’ll party all night
Then we’ll party all night

Silent Night
Funky Night
Bootsy called
He wants to jam tonight
So we pile into the funkmobile
Race like a maniac behind the wheel
George Clinton might be there
Geroge Clinton might be there

Silent Night
Funky Night
Groupies of age
Meet us backstage
We’ll show you the meaning of getting funky
With The Maneuver everyone’s getting lucky
Then we’ll party all night
Then we’ll party all night

Six White Boomers

Early on one christmas day
A Joey kangaroo
Was far from home and lost
In a great, big zoo

Mommy….where’s my mommy?
They’ve taken her away

We’ll help you find your mommy, son
Hop up on the sleigh

So up inside the bag of toys
Little Joey hopped
But they hadn’t gone far when santa stopped
Unharnessed all the reindeer
And Joey wondered why
Then he heard a far off booming in the sky

Six white boomers
Snow white boomers
Racing santa claus through the blazing sun
Six white boomers
Snow white boomers
On his Australian run

Pretty soon old Santa began to feel the heat
Took his fur-lined boots off to cool his feet
Into one popped Joey
Feelin’ quite okay
While those old man kangaroos kept pullin’ on the sleigh
hey!

[chorus]

Then joey said to Santa, “Santa, what about the toys?
Aren’t you giving some to these girls and boys?”

“Well, they’ve all had their presents, sonny
We were here last night
This trip is an extra trip
Joey’s special flight

[chorus]

Soon the sleigh was flashing past
Right over marble bah
“Slow down there!” cried Santa
“It can’t be far
Hop up on my lap here, son
And have a look around”
“There, there she is!
That’s mommy! bounding up and down!”

[chorus]

Well, that’s the bestest christmas treat
That joey ever had
Curled up in mother’s pouch feeling snug and glad
The last they saw was Santa heading northwards from the sun
The only year the boomers worked a double run

[chorus]

Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer

Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer
Had a very shiny nose
And if you ever saw it
You would even say it glows

All of the other reindeer
Used to laugh and call him names
They never let poor Rudolph
Join in any reindeer games

Then one foggy Christmas Eve
Santa came to say
Rudolph with your nose so bright
Won’t you guide my sleigh tonight?

Then all the reindeer loved him
And they shouted out with glee
Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer
You’ll go down in history!

Merry Christmas (I don’t want to fight tonight)

Merry Christmas, I don’t want to fight tonight
Merry Christmas, I don’t want to fight tonight
Merry Christmas, I don’t want to fight tonight with you

Where is Santa? At his sleigh?
Tell me why is it always this way?
Where is Rudolph? Where is Blitzen, baby?
Merry Christmas, merry merry merry Christmas

All the children are tucked in their beds
Sugar-plum fairies dancing in their heads
Snowball fighting, it’s so exciting baby

I love you and you love me
And that’s the way it’s got to be
I loved you from the start
‘Cause Christmas ain’t the time for breaking each other’s hearts

Where is Santa? At his sleigh?
Tell me why is it always this way?
Where is Rudolph? Where is Blitzen, baby?
Merry Christmas, merry merry merry Christmas

All the children are tucked in their beds
Sugar-plum fairies dancing in their heads
Snowball fighting, it’s so exciting baby

Yeah, yeah, yeah

I love you and you love me
And that’s the way it’s got to be
I loved you from the start
‘Cause Christmas ain’t the time for breaking each other’s hearts

Merry Christmas, I don’t want to fight tonight
Merry Christmas, I don’t want to fight tonight
Merry Christmas, I don’t want to fight tonight with you

Fairytale of New York

It was Christmas Eve babe
In the drunk tank
An old man said to me, won’t see another one
And then he sang a song
The Rare Old Mountain Dew
I turned my face away
And dreamed about you

Got on a lucky one
Came in eighteen to one
I’ve got a feeling
This year’s for me and you
So happy Christmas
I love you baby
I can see a better time
When all our dreams come true

They’ve got cars big as bars
They’ve got rivers of gold
But the wind goes right through you
It’s no place for the old
When you first took my hand
On a cold Christmas Eve
You promised me
Broadway was waiting for me

You were handsome
You were pretty
Queen of New York City
When the band finished playing
They howled out for more
Sinatra was swinging,
All the drunks they were singing
We kissed on a corner
Then danced through the night

The boys of the NYPD choir
Were singing “Galway Bay”
And the bells were ringing out
For Christmas day

You’re a bum
You’re a punk
You’re an old slut on junk
Lying there almost dead on a drip in that bed
You scumbag, you maggot
You cheap lousy faggot
Happy Christmas your arse
I pray God it’s our last

The boys of the NYPD choir
Still singing “Galway Bay”
And the bells were ringing out
For Christmas day

I could have been someone
Well so could anyone
You took my dreams from me
When I first found you
I kept them with me babe
I put them with my own
Can’t make it all alone
I’ve built my dreams around you

The boys of the NYPD choir
Still singing “Galway Bay”
And the bells are ringing out
For Christmas day

Christmas in Hollis

It was December 24th on Hollis Ave after dark
When I seen a man chilling with his dog at the park
I approached them very slowly with my heart full of fear
Looked at his dog, oh my God, a illin’ reindeer

But then I was chillin’ because the man had a beard
And a bag full of goodies, 12 o’clock had neared
So I turned my head a second and the man was gone
But he must of dropped his wallet smack dead on the lawn

I picket the wallet up and then I took a pause
Took out the license and it cold said Santa Claus
A million dollars in it, cold hundreds of G’s
Enough to buy a boat, matching car with ease

But I’d never steal from Santa, ’cause that ain’t right
So I was going home to mail it back to him that night
But when I got home I bugged, ’cause under the tree
Was a letter from Santa and the dough is for me

It’s Christmas time in Hollis, Queens
Mom’s cooking chicken and collard greens
Rice and stuffing, macaroni and cheese
And Santa puttin’ gifts under Christmas trees

Decorate the house with lights at night
Snow’s on the ground, snow white so bright
In the fireplace is the yule log
Beneath the mistletoe as we drink egg nog
The rhymes that you hear are the rhymes of Darryl’s
But each and every year we bust Christmas carols

Rhymes so loud and proud to hear it
It’s Christmas time and we got the spirit
Jack Frost chillin’, the hawk is out,
And that’s what Christmas is all about
The time is now, the place is here
And the whole wide world is filled with cheer

My name’s DMC with the mic in my hand
And I’m chilling and coolin’ just like a snowman
So open your eyes, lend us a ear, we want to say
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
