Track Name: Marqiss - Holiday Love
If Marqiss could fly
like Santa Claus up in the sky
He’d land the sleigh up on your roof girl
Light a Menorah, candle-lit dinner for two
open some nice manischewitz
cheers to baby Jesus
and god bless us
every one

You know you wanna
I hope we gonna
Snuggle on Christmas
Get on our Kwanzaa
Ohhh girl
spread the love Hanukkah
yeah baby
Cuz it’s lovely to love on a holiday

I wanna unwrap you girl
In the Marqiss sleigh fly you all around the world
We could drop off a whole lot of presents
Kiss you in the north pole heavens
I know you like hot roasted chestnuts
So here’s to you
And god bless us
Every one

You know you wanna
I hope we gonna
Snuggle on Christmas
Get on our Kwanzaa
Ohhh girl
spread the love Hanukkah
yeah baby
Cuz it’s lovely to love on a holiday
Track Name: Mothball Fleet - It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas
Ev'rywhere you go;
Take a look in the five and ten glistening once again
With candy canes and silver lanes aglow.
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas
Toys in ev'ry store
But the prettiest sight to see is the holly that will be
On your own front door.

A pair of hopalong boots and a pistol that shoots
Is the wish of Barney and Ben;
Dolls that will talk and will go for a walk
Is the hope of Janice and Jen;
And Mom and Dad can hardly wait for school to start again.
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas
Ev'rywhere you go;
There's a tree in the Grand Hotel, one in the park as well,
The sturdy kind that doesn't mind the snow.
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas;
Soon the bells will start,
And the thing that will make them ring is the carol that you sing
Right within your heart.
Track Name: Mr. Kind - The Ballad of Mall Santa
My name is Carl
But Saint Nick I'm called
One month out of the year
I hold court in a mall

Never seen snow
I'm California raised
Been the king of this Santa Land here for the last 5 holidays

Children and parents line up
Waiting anxiously
With hopes of a picture and to ask gifts of me

I play the part
Perfect to a T
'til the gifts have been given and then it's back to old me

11 months a year no one knows who I am
As I drift between temporary jobs
In my red suit and hat I am where I belong
It's good to be the clause

I've set my sights on
My Mrs. Clause to be
In a kiosk by Sears
where she sells jewelry

I look great with kids
I must be on her mind
For a man in my powerful place
It's just a matter of time

I shouldn't wait too long
Got to make my move quick
Won't have much to offer
Come the 26th

11 months out of the year she wouldn't care who I am
Without this costume to cover my flaws
But I'm irresistible in my glasses and beard
It feels good to be the clause

My name is Carl
But you can call me Nick
5 weeks out of the year
I let myself be tricked

I'm standing in line
Application in hand
The work isn't Santa Clause
but I'm ho-ho-holding on 'til next year
Track Name: River Shiver - Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas
Have yourself a merry little Christmas
Let your heart be light
From now on your troubles will be out of sight, yeah

Have yourself a merry little Christmas
Make the Yuletide gay
From now on your troubles will be miles away, oh

Here we are as in olden days
Happy golden days of yore, ah
Faithful friends who are dear to us
They gather near to us once more, ooh

Through the years we all will be together and
If the fates allow
Hang a shining star upon the highest bow, oh yeah, oh
And have yourself a merry little Christmas now, oh, oh

Faithful friends who are dear to us
They gather near to us once more, oh, oh

Through the years we all will be together and
If the fates allow, oh yeah
But 'til then we'll have to muddle through somehow, oh yeah, oh, oh
And have yourself a merry little Christmas now, ooh yeah, oh, ooh
Track Name: Finish Ticket - Jingle Bell Rock
Jingle bell, jingle bell, jingle bell rock
Jingle bells swing and jingle bells ring
Snowin' and blowin' up bushels of fun
Now, the jingle hop has begun

Jingle bell, jingle bell, jingle bell twist
Jingle bells chime in jingle bell time
Dancin' and prancin' in Jingle Bell Square
In the frosty air

What a bright time, it's the right time
To rock the night away
Jingle bell time is a swell time
To go glidin' in a one-horse sleigh

Giddy-up jingle horse, pick up your feet
Jingle around the clock
Mix and a-mingle in the jinglin' feet
That's the jingle bell rock, yeah

Jingle bell, jingle bell, jingle bell rock
Jingle bells swing and jingle bells ring
Snowin' and blowin' up bushels of fun
Now, the jingle hop has begun

Jingle bell, jingle bell, jingle bell twist
Jingle bells chime in jingle bell time
Dancin' and prancin' in Jingle Bell Square
In the frosty air

What a bright time, it's the right time
To rock the night away
Jingle bell time is a swell time
To go glidin' in a one-horse sleigh

Giddy-up pony time, kick up your feet
Jingle around the clock
Mix and a-mingle in the jinglin' feet
That's the jingle bell rock, jingle rock
Jingle bell rock, rock, rock
Track Name: Chelsea Coleman - The Merry Innocents
God rest you merry, Innocents,
Let nothing you dismay,
Let nothing wound an eager heart
Upon this Christmas day.
Yours be the genial holly wreaths,
The stockings and the tree;
An aged world to you bequeaths
Its own forgotten glee.
Soon, soon enough come crueler gifts,
The anger and the tears;
Between you now there sparsely drifts
A handful yet of years.

Oh, dimly, dimly glows the star
Through the electric throng;
The bidding in temple and bazaar
Drowns out the silver song.

The ancient altars smoke afresh,
The ancient idols stir;
Faint in the reek of burning flesh
Sink frankincense and myrrh.

Gaspar, Balthazar, Melchior!
Where are your offerings now?
What greetings to the Prince of War,
His darkly branded brow?

Two ultimate laws alone we know,
The ledger and the sword --
So far away, so long ago,
We lost the infant Lord.

Only the children clasp His hand;
His voice speaks low to them,
And still for them the shining band
Wings over Bethlehem.

God rest you merry, Innocents,
While innocence endures,
A sweeter Christmas than we to ours
May you bequeath to yours.
Track Name: Mana Maddy - What Child is This?
What child is this who laid to rest on Mary's lap is sleeping, whom angels greet with anthems sweet, while shepherds watch are keeping?

Raise, raise the song on high! A mother sings her lullaby. Joy, joy, for Christ is born, the babe, the son of Mary.

What child is this who lays so sweet while ox and ass lay at his feet. Come have no fear God's children hear, the silent word is pleading.

Raise, raise the song on high! A mother sings her lullaby. Joy, joy, for Christ is born, the babe, the son of Mary.
Track Name: The Plastic Arts - O, Holy Night
O holy night!
The stars are brightly shining
It is the night
Of the dear Savior's birth!
Long lay the world in sin and error pining
Till he appear'd and the soul felt His worth
A thrill of hope
The weary world rejoices
For yonder breaks
A new and glorious morn!
Fall on your knees
Oh hear the angel voices
Oh night divine
Oh night when Christ was born
Oh night divine, oh night, oh night divine

Chains shall He break
For the slave is our brother
And in His name all oppression shall cease
Sweet hymns of joy
In grateful chorus raise we
Let all within us praise His holy name
Christ is the Lord, let ever ever praise Thee
Noël, Noël
Oh night, Oh night divine
Noël, Noël
Oh night, Oh night divine
Noël, Noël
Oh, oh night, oh night divine
