THE MOST WONDERFUL TIME- Written by C.Hawk/J.Portee/A.Baraka

IT'S THE MOST WONDERFUL TIME

TIME OF THE YEAR

IT'S THE MOST WONDERFUL TIME

TIME OF THE YEAR

 EVERYBODY'S SHOPPING

PARTIES EVERYWHERE

JINGLE BELLS ARE RINGING

SO MUCH LOVE TO SHARE

IT'S THE TIME OF YEAR

TO SHOW THE WORLD SOME GOOD CHEER

 THERE'LL  BE MISTLETOEING

CHRISTMAS LIGHTS ARE GLOWING

EVERYBODY'S CALLING

TO SAY THE SNOW IS FALLING

IT'S THE TIME OF YEAR

 TO SPREAD YOUR LOVE AND GOOD CHEER

 IT'S THE MOST WONDERFUL TIME

TIME OF THE YEAR

IT'S THE MOST WONDERFUL TIME

TIME OF THE YEAR 

 FAMILY'S ALL AROUND ME

PRESENCE EVERYWHERE

CHRISTMAS STOCKINGS HANGING

CHILDREN STOP AND STARE

IT'S THE TIME OF YEAR

WHEN YOUR LOVED ONES ARE NEAR

 IT'S THE MOST WONDERFUL TIME

TIME OF THE YEAR

IT'S THE MOST WONDERFUL TIME

TIME OF THE YEAR 

 THE MOST, THE MOST, THE MOST

THE MOST BEAUTIFUL PRESENT IS YOUR PRESENCE

INSTEAD OF GIFTS I'M COUNTING MY BLESSING

YOU WON'T FIND MY HEART WHERE THE CASH IS 

DESPITE COMMERCIALISM OF THE MASSES

BROKE OR RICH IN SNOW OR RAIN

I'M FEELING JOLLY THAT SOMETHING  

THAT MONEY WON'T CHANGE

YULETIDES HERE TO PUT ME IN A BETTER PLACE

CHRISTMAS WON'T START

'TILL WE HEAR SOME DONNY HATHAWAY

 

   CHRISTMASTIME IS HERE- written by Vince Guaraldi

CHRISTMAS TIME IS HERE

HAPPINESS AND CHEER

FUN FOR ALL THAT CHILDREN CALL

THEIR FAVORITE TIME OF YEAR

SNOWFLAKES IN THE AIR

CAROLS EVERYWHERE

OLDEN TIMES AND ANCIENT RHYMES

OF LOVE AND DREAMS TO SHARE

SLEIGH BELLS IN THE AIR

BEAUTY EVERYWHERE

YULETIDE BY THE FIRESIDE

AND JOYFUL MEMORIES THERE

 CHRISTMAS TIME IS HERE

FAMILIES DRAWING NEAR

OH THAT WE COULD ALWAYS SEE

SUCH SPIRIT THROUGH THE YEAR

 THE FIRST NOEL- public domain

THE FIRST NOEL, THE ANGEL DID SAY

WAS TO CERTAIN POOR SHEPHERDS

IN FIELDS AS THEY LAY

IN FIELDS WHERE THEY

LAY KEEPING THEIR SHEEP

ON A COLD WINTERS NIGHT

THAT WAS SO DEEP

 NOEL, NOEL NOEL, NOEL

BORN IS THE KING OF ISRAEL

 THEY LOOKED UP

AND SAW A STAR

SHINING IN THE EAST

BEYOND THEM FAR

AND TO THE EARTH

IT GAVE GREAT LIGHT

AND SO IT CONTINUED

BOTH DAY AND NIGHT

 NOEL, NOEL NOEL, NOEL

BORN IS THE KING OF ISRAEL

 AND BY THE LIGHT

OF THAT SAME STAR

THREE WISE MEN CAME FROM

A COUNTRY FAR

TO SEEK FOR A KING WAS THEIR INTENT

AND TO FOLLOW THAT STAR WHEREVER IT WENT

WAITING ON CHRISTMAS- written by C.Hawk/J.Portee

CHRISTMAS IS THE TIME

WE CELEBRATE THE BIRTH OF CHRIST

SHOWING LOVE TO THOSE

LESS FORTUNATE THAN THOSE WE KNOW

IN THIS SEASON OF LOVE

AT THIS TIME OF YEAR

WE'RE REMINDED THAT WE NEED TO CARE

FOR THE YOUNG AND OLD

WHO HAVEN'T ANYWHERE TO CALL HOME

IN THIS SEASON OF HOPE

 SO WHY ARE WE WAITING ON CHRISTMAS

THERE'S SOMEONE WHO NEEDS LOVE TODAY

IT'S NOT TOO LATE TO MAKE IT BETTER

'CAUSE EVERYDAY COULD BE CHRISTMAS

ON ANY DAY YOU GIVE LOVE AWAY

 THERE'S KINDNESS IN THE AIR

LOVE PEACE AND SMILES TO SHARE

ATTENTION SHOWN TO THOSE  

WE NEVER TOOK THE TIME TO NOTICE

IN THIS SEASON OF LOVE

 SO WHY ARE WE WAITING ON CHRISTMAS

THERE'S SOMEONE WHO NEEDS LOVE TODAY

IT'S NOT TOO LATE TO MAKE IT BETTER

'CAUSE EVERYDAY COULD BE CHRISTMAS

ON ANY DAY YOU GIVE LOVE AWAY

 NO NEED TO WAIT TO A HOLIDAY

TO SHOW SOME LOVE TO YOUR BROTHER

WE'RE ALL TOGETHER HERE YEAR ROUND  

LET'S SHOW OUR LOVE TO ONE ANOTHER

 

THE CHRISTMAS SONG- written by M. Torme 

CHESTNUTS ROASTING ON AN OPEN FIRE

JACK FROST NIPPING AT YOUR NOSE

YULETIDE CAROLS BEING SUNG BY A CHOIR

AND FOLKS DRESSED UP LIKE ESKIMOS

EVERYBODY KNOWS

A TURKEY AND SOME MISTLETOE

HELP TO MAKE THE SEASON BRIGHT

TINY TOTS WITH THEIR EYES ALL A GLOW

WILL FIND IT HARD TO SLEEP TONIGHT. 

THEY KNOW THAT SANTA'S ON HIS WAY

HE'S LOADED LOTS OF TOYS AND GOODIES

ON HIS SLEIGH

AND EVERY MOTHERS CHILD IS GOING TO SPY

TO SEE IF REIGN DEER REALLY KNOW HOW TO FLY

AND SO I'M OFFERING THIS SIMPLE PHRASE

TO KIDS FROM ONE TO NINTY-TWO

ALTHOUGH IT'S BEEN SAID MANY TIMES , MANY WAYS

MERRY CHRISTMAS TO YOU

 THIS CHRISTMAS written by N. Mckinnor and D. Pitts

HANG ALL THE MISTLETOE  

I'M GOING TO GET TO KNOW YOU BETTER

THIS CHRISTMAS

AND AS WE TRIM THE TREE

HOW MUCH FUN IT'S GONNA BE TOGETHER

THIS CHRISTMAS

THE FIRESIDE IS BLAZING BRIGHT

WE'RE CAROLING THROUGH THE NIGHT

 AND THIS CHRISTMAS WILL BE

A VERY SPECIAL CHRISTMAS FOR ME

 PRESENTS AND CARDS ARE HERE

MY WORLD IS FILLED WITH CHEER AND YOU

THIS CHRISTMAS

AND AS WE LOOK AROUND YOUR EYES  

OUT SHINE THE TOWN THEY DO

 THIS CHRISTMAS

 

 CHRISTMAS WITHOUT YOU written by C.Hawk and J.D.Carter

STREETS ARE FULL AND THE LIGHTS THEY GLOW

CHILDREN SINGING LET IT SNOW

IT'S CHRISTMAS

PRESENTS UNDERNEATH THE TREE

NO OTHER PLACE I'D RATHER BE  

THIS CHRISTMAS

WHEN I SEE A PASSERBY

I GIE A SMILE AND SAY HELLO

CAUSE THEY DON'T KNOW THE PAIN I FEEL INSIDE

SO HOW DO I GO ON WITHOUT YOU

TELL ME WHAT AM I SUPPOSED TO DO

I'M MISSING YOU, I HATE THAT YOU LEFT ME

THIS DOESN'T EVEN FEEL LIKE HOME

'CAUSE EVERYWHERE I LOOK REMINDS ME THAT YOU'RE GONE

FOR SOME IT'S JUST ANOTHER DAY

FOR ME IT HOLDS A SPECIAL PLACE

CHRISTMAS

IT DON'T FEEL RIGHT SINCE YOU WENT AWAY

YOUR LOVE REMAINS AND FILLS THIS PLACE

THIS CHRISTMAS

EVEN THROUGH THE TEARS I'VE CRIED

OH I KNOW IT'LL BE OKAY

I'M TRYING TO FIND A WAY TO SMILE AGAIN

 SO HOW DO I GO ON WITHOUT YOU

TELL ME WHAT AM I SUPPOSED TO DO

I'M MISSING YOU, I HATE THAT YOU LEFT ME

THIS DOESN'T EVEN FEEL LIKE HOME

'CAUSE EVERYWHERE I LOOK REMINDS ME THAT YOU'RE GONE 

 OH IT FEELS SO WRONG  

BUT I KNOW THAT YOU ARE WHERE YOU BELONG

BUT EVERYDAY I WISH YOU WERE STILL HERE

ON MY KNEES I PRAY

THAT GOD WOULD HELP ME THROUGH THIS PAIN

ESPECIALLY ON THIS DAY
