Holiday Lyrics

Good King Wenceslas looked out

On the Feast of Stephen
When the snow lay 'round about
Deep and crisp and even
Brightly shone the moon that night
Though the frost was cruel
When a poor man came in sight
Gath'ring winter fuel


"Hither, page, and stand by me,
If thou know'st it, telling
Yonder peasant, who is he?
Where and what his dwelling?"
"Sire, he lives a good league hence,
Underneath the mountain
Right against the forest fence
By Saint Agnes' fountain."


"Bring me flesh and bring me wine
Bring me pine-logs hither
Thou and I shall see him dine
When we bear them thither."
Page and monarch, forth they went                   
Forth they went together
Through the rude wind's wild lament                
And the bitter weather.

 

I have a little dreidel
I made it out of clay
And when it’s dry and ready
Oh dreidel, I shall play


Oh, dreidel, dreidel, dreidel
I made you out of clay
And when you’re dry and ready
Oh Dreidel we shall play

 

 

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
 

Johnny wants a pair of skates;
Susy wants a sled;
Nellie wants a picture book;
Yellow blue and red;
Now I think I'll leave to you

What to give the rest;
Choose for me, dear Santa Claus
You will know the best.
 

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

 

Up on the housetop reindeer pause
Out jumps good old Santa Claus
Down through 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?
Oh, up on the housetop, click-click-click
Down through the chimney with good St. Nick
 

First comes the stocking of little Nell
Oh, dear Santa will fill it well
Give her a dolly that laughs and cries
One that will open and shut its eyes

(Ho-ho-ho) who wouldn't go?
(Ho-ho-ho) who wouldn't go?
Oh, up on the housetop, click-click-click
Down through the chimney with the good St. Nick

 

Next comes the stocking of little Bill
Oh, just see what a glorious fill
Here is a little hammer and lots of tacks
A whistle and a ball and whip that cracks

(Ho-ho-ho) who wouldn't go?
(Ho-ho-ho) who wouldn't go?
Up on the housetop, click-click-click.
Down through the chimney with the good St. Nick

 

We wish you a Merry Christmas
We wish you a Merry Christmas
We wish you a Merry Christmas
And a Happy New Year

Now bring us some figgy pudding
Now bring us some figgy pudding
Now bring us some figgy pudding
And a cup of good cheer

Good tidings we bring                                     
To you and your kin
We wish you a Merry Christmas
And a Happy New Year

We wish you a Merry Christmas
We wish you a Merry Christmas
We wish you a Merry Christmas
And a Happy New Year

 

 

 

Oh Hanukkah, Oh, Hanukkah

Come light the menorah

Come to our party

We'll all dance the hora

Gather 'round the table

We'll give you a treat,

Dreidels to play with and latkes to eat

And while we are playing

The candles are burning low

One for each night, they shed a sweet light

To remind us of days long ago

One for each night, they shed a sweet light

To remind us of days long ago

 

In the bleak mid-winter

Frosty wind made moan;

Earth stood hard as iron,

Water like a stone;

Snow had fallen, snow on snow,

Snow on snow,

In the bleak mid-winter

Long ago.

 

Our God, heaven cannot hold Him

Nor earth sustain,

Heaven and earth shall flee away

When He comes to reign:

In the bleak mid-winter

A stable-place sufficed

The Lord God Almighty —

Jesus Christ.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Let It Snow

Oh, the weather outside is frightful

But the fire is so delightful

And since we've no place to go

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow

Man it doesn't show signs of stoppin'

And I brought me some corn for poppin'

The lights are turned way down low

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow

When we finally kiss good-night

How I'll hate going out in the storm

But if you really hold me tight

All the way home I'll be warm

And the fire is slowly dying

And, my dear, we're still good-bye-ing

But as long as you'd love me so

Let it snow, let it snow, and snow

 

I'm dreaming of a white Christmas

Just like the ones I used to know

Where the tree tops glisten

And children listen

To hear sleigh bells in the snow, oh, the snow

I said, I'm dreaming of a white Christmas

With every Christmas card I write

May your days be merry and bright

And may all your Christmas' be white
