Winter Fantasy


Snowflakes falling all over town,

slipping, sliding, ev’rybody rushin’ ‘round.

There’s an icy chill in the air,

telling us that winter’s really here,


Oh!


I’m so glad that winter is here.

Grab your sled and let out a happy cheer because it’s

snowing, blowing, all through the day.

Winter winds will surely blow all your cares away.

Jingle Bells


Dashing thru the snow in a one-horse open sleigh.

O’er the fields we go, laughing all the way.

Bells on bobtails ring, making spirits bright. What

fun it is to laugh and sing a sleighing song tonight.


Oh!


Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way.

Oh, what fun it is to ride in a one-horse open sleigh.

Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way.

Oh, what fun it is to ride in a one-horse open sleigh.

Deck the Hall


Deck the hall with boughs of holly,

Fa la la la la, la la la la.

‘Tis the season to be jolly,

Don we now our gay apparel,

Troll the ancient Yuletide carol.


See the blazing yule before us,

Strike the harp and join the chorus,

Follow me in merry measure,

While I tell of yuletide treasure.


Fast away the old year passes,

Hail the new, ye lads and lasses,

Sing we joyous altogether,

Heedless of the wind and weather.


Ding Dong Merrily On High


Ding, dong! merrily on high

In heav’n the bells are ringing;

Ding, dong! verily the sky

is riv’n with angels singing.


Glo—ria hosanna in excelsis.


Ding dong! carol all the bells,

Awake now, do not tarry!

Sing out, sound the good nowells,

Jesu is born of Mary.


Here We Come A-Caroling


Here we come a-caroling

Among the leaves so green;

Here we come a-wandering,

So fair to be seen.


Love and joy come to you,

And to you glad Christmas too;

And God bless you and send you

A happy New Year,

And God send you a happy New Year.


We are not daily beggars

That beg from door to door;

But we are neighbors’ children,

Whom you have seen before.


God bless the master of this house,

Likewise the mistress too,

And all the little children,

That round the table go.

Jolly Old St. Nicholas


Jolly old Saint Nicholas,

Lean your ear this way!

Don’t you tell a single soul

What I’m going to say;

Christmas Eve is coming soon;

Now, you dear old man,

Whisper what you’ll bring to me;

Tell me if you can.


When the clock is striking twelve,

When I’m fast asleep,

Down the chimney broad and black,

With your pack you’ll creep;

All the stockings you will find

Hanging in a row;

Mine will be the shortest one,

You’ll be sure to know.


Johnny wants a pair of skates;

Susy wants a dolly;

Nellie wants a story book/

She think dolls are folly;

As for me, my little brain

Isn’t very bright;

Choose for me, old Santa Clause,

What you think is right.

Up On the Housetop


Up on the house-top the reindeer pause,

Out jumps good old Santa Claus;

Down thro’ the chimney with lots of toys,

All for the little ones’ Christmas joys.


Ho, Ho, Ho! Who wouldn’t go?

Ho, Ho, Ho! Who wouldn’t go?

Up on the house-top,

Click, click, click,

Down thro’ the chimney

with good Saint Nick.


First comes the stocking of little Nell;

Oh, dear Santa, fill it well;

Give her a dollie that laughs and cries,

One that will open and shut her eyes.


Next comes the stocking of little Will;

Oh, just see what a glorious fill;

Here is a hammer and lots of tacks,

Also a ball and a whip that cracks.

We Wish You a Merry Christmas


We wish you a Merry Christmas,

We wish you a Merry Christmas,

We wish you a Merry Christmas,

And a happy New Year!


Good tidings we bring,

To you and your kin,

Good tidings of Christmas,

And a Happy New Year.


Oh, bring us some figgy pudding,

Oh, bring us some figgy pudding,

Oh, bring us some figgy pudding,

And bring it out here!


We won’t go until we get some,

We won’t go until we get some,

We won’t go until we get some,

So bring some out here.
