del - walking in a winter wonderland

WINTER WONDERLAND – Bing Crosby

[Chorus]
Sleigh bells ring, are you listening, In the lane, snow is glistening
A beautiful sight, we’re happy tonight, Walking in a winter wonderland

[Post-Chorus]
Gone away is the bluebird, Here to stay is a new bird
He sings a love song as we go along, Walking in a winter wonderland

[Verse 1]
In the meadow, we can build a snowman, Then pretend that he is Parson Brown
He’ll say, “Are you married?” We’ll say, “No man,”  But you can do the job when you’re in town

[Refrain]
Later on, we’ll conspire, As we dream by the fire
To face unafraid, the plans that we’ve made, Walking in a winter wonderland

[Chorus]
Sleigh bells ring, are you listening, In the lane, snow is glistening
A beautiful sight, we’re happy tonight, Walking in a winter wonderland

[Post-Chorus]
Gone away is the bluebird, Here to stay is a new bird
He sings a love song as we go along, Walking in a winter wonderland

[Verse 2]
In the meadow, we can build a snowman, And pretend that he’s a circus clown
We’ll have lots of fun with Mr. Snowman, Yes, until the other kiddies knock him down

[Refrain]
Later on, we’ll conspire, As we dream sittin’ by the fire
To face unafraid all the plans that we’ve made
Walking in a winter wonderland
Walking in a winter wonderland

Frosty The Snowman – Ella Fitzgerald

Who’s debonair with the tall silk hat?
Muffler of wool and a tummy that’s fat?
King for a day, and he loves the road
With a broomstick cane and a heart of gold
That’s Frosty the Snowman, He’s a jolly happy soul
With a corncob pipe and a button nose, And two eyes made out of coal
Frosty the Snowman, Is a fairy tale they say
He was made of snow But the children know
How he came to life one day
There must have been some magic in That old silk hat they found
For when they placed it on his head He began to dance around
Frosty the Snowman, Was alive as he could be
And the children say He could laugh and play
Just the same as you and me
Frosty the Snowman, Knew the sun was hot that day
So he said let’s run And we’ll have some fun
Now before I melt away
So down to the village, With a broomstick in his hand
Running here and there all around the square
Saying catch me if you can
He led them down the streets of town Right to the traffic cop
And he only paused a moment when He heard him holler stop
For Frosty the Snowman, Had to hurry on his way
But he waved goodbye Saying don’t you cry
I’ll be back again some day
Thumpety thump thump, Thumpety thump thump, Look at Frosty go
Thumpety thump thump, Thumpety thump thump, Over the hills of snow

JINGLE BELLS

[Verse 1]
Dashing through 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 ride and sing  A sleighing song tonight

[Chorus]
Jingle bells, jingle bells Jingle all the way
Oh, what fun it is to ride In a one-horse open sleigh, hey
Jingle bells, jingle bells  Jingle all the way
Oh, what fun it is to ride  In a one-horse open sleigh

[Verse 2]
A day or two ago  I thought I’d take a ride
And soon, Miss Fanny Bright  Was seated by my side
The horse was lean and lank Misfortune seemed his lot
He got into a drifted bank  And then we got upsot

[CHORUS]  Jingle bells, Jingle bells…

[Verse 3]
A day or two ago The story I must tell
I went out on the snow And on my back I fell
A gent was riding by, In a one-horse open sleigh
He laughed as there I sprawling lie, But quickly drove away

[CHORUS]  Jingle bells, Jingle bells…

[Verse 4]
Now the ground is white, Go it while you’re young
Take the girls tonight, And sing this sleighing song
Just get a bobtailed bay, Two forty as his speed
Hitch him to an open sleigh, And crack, you’ll take the lead

[CHORUS]  Jingle bells, Jingle bells…

Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer – Gene Autry

You know Dasher and Dancer and Prancer and Vixen
Comet and Cupid and Donner and Blitzen
But do you recall, The most famous reindeer of all?
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 how the reindeer loved him, As they shouted out with glee
“Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, You’ll go down in history”
[Jack Johnson Restorative Justice Ending]:
But Rudolph he didn’t go for that
He said, “I see through your silly games
“How can you look me in the face when only yesterday you called me names?”
Then all the other reindeer, Man they really felt ashamed
They said, “Rudolph you know we’re sorry, And we’re really gonna try to change!”

SILVER BELLS – Bing Crosby

City sidewalks, busy sidewalks, Dressed in holiday style
In the air there’s a feeling of Christmas
Children laughing, People passing, Meeting smile after smile
And on every street corner you’ll hear

Silver bells, (Silver bells) Silver bells, (silver bells)
It’s Christmas time in the city
Ring-a-ling (ring-a-ling), Hear them ring (hear them ring)
Soon it will be Christmas day

Strings of streetlights, Even stop lights, Blink a bright red and green
As the shoppers rush, Home with their treasures

And above all this bustle you’ll hear

Silver bells) the corner Santa Claus
(Silver bells), it’s busy now because
It’s Christmas time in the city
Ring-a-ling, (it fills the winter air)
Hear them ring (you’ll hear it everywhere)
Soon it will be Christmas day

City sidewalks, (silver bells) busy sidewalks
(Silver bells) Dressed in holiday style
In the air (It’s Christmas time in the city)
There’s a feeling of Christmas
Children laughing, (ring-a-ling)
People passing, (Hear them ring)
Meeting smile after smile
Very soon it will be Christmas day

12 Days o Christmas

THE TWELVE DAYS OF CHRISTMAS

On the twelfth day of Christmas12 days of Christmas my true love sent to me:
12 Drummers Drumming
Eleven Pipers Piping
Ten Lords a Leaping
Nine Ladies Dancing
Eight Maids a Milking
Seven Swans a Swimming
Six Geese a Laying
Five Golden Rings
Four Calling Birds
Three French Hens
Two Turtle Doves
and a Partridge in a Pear Tree
