Track Name: Christmas is the Best!
I got a bike, got a yellow kite, thank you Santa it's just what I wanted
15 dollars and a funny card, thank you Grandma, it's a pretty good gift, but
All the best things comes from under the tree, alright?
Christmas is the best, I love Jesus and my friends tonight

I got a game with an awesome name, verse my friends when we're hangin out
I got a bat, got a kitty cat, thank you mom it's a really cute cat, but
All I really need can't fit under a tree, alright?
Christmas is the best, I love Jesus and my friends tonight

Lately you're saying that you don't believe, and that you're lonely this Christmas Eve
But baby, I've got a vice, get your eyes off the sky
Get to dancing off the Christmas blues!

Christmas is the best

Christmas is the best, I love Jesus and my friends tonight
Track Name: Toyland
Toyland, toyland
Little girl and boy land
While you dwell within it,
You are ever happy then.
Childhood’s joy-land,
Mystic merry Toyland,
Once you pass it’s borders,
You can never return again.
Track Name: Don't You Know Where Christmas Comes From?
Nobody knows the hour or the minute or the day
Savior will come to say "Away!"
Terrible heiress, old tamarind, teething yet
Which Spirit of Christmas is the best?
Wait for the sound of flight
Gold bells in the hymns of night

Every angel in heaven cries where the brass band
Trumpets the Savior's life, tonight
Glorious feast of lights, lanterns lit in the sky
Here we proclaim the King, the Christ
Bright halls, laughter and all
Where song is the sound of love
Send the Holy Spirit dove
To rouse every heart for the good ghost's son

Nobody knows the hour, nobody knows the hour
Track Name: Angels We Have Heard On High
Angels we have heard on high
Sweetly singing o'er the plains,
And the mountains in reply
Echoing their joyous strains.

Gloria, in excelsis Deo!
Gloria, in excelsis Deo!

Come to Bethlehem and see
Christ Whose birth the angels sing;
Come, adore on bended knee,
Christ the Lord, the newborn King.

Gloria, in excelsis Deo!
Gloria, in excelsis Deo!
Track Name: Malady
Whistler Ridge, Bonnie's blood at the pass
Broken sled, come inside, lay by me, crying
Breathing in unison, havok hands shaking bad
Empty halls, Christmas dinner alone
Hollow head, pulse resounding again
How you cave, sleep for days, wake, revert, live in haste

Every broken ornament, and twenty thousand robbins
And countless cutlery here on Christmas Eve

Take my cot, carry that cross, bury that boat, lamenting Lot
Save that dance, saffron hands, Winter ruse, rosy mess
Lacquered loft, simple song, arid eyes, sultry thought
Malady, livid dream, cold-sweat night
Track Name: I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day
I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play
And wild and sweet, the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men

I thought how, as the day had come
The belfries of all Christendom
Had rolled along unbroken song
Of peace on earth, good will to men
Peace on earth, good will to men

And in despair, I bowed my head
"There is no peace on earth," I said
For hate is strong, and mocks the song
Peace on earth, good will to men

Then pealed the bells, more loud and deep
God is not dead, nor doth he sleep
The wrong shall fail, the right prevail
Peace on earth, good will to men
Track Name: Tinsel Vision
Trampled toke, alpaca weave
Wet wool in the snow
Savor that cement, reverent little harlot
Canterbury croak, Christmas ghost in the foyer
Circumvent, surmise the intent of the day

Tinsel vision, tunnel town
I've dreamt every sound
You were just a hatbox I'd held on the ground
Pray, what is it which wakes your judgement?
I've kissed, but I can't seem to graze your garment
Track Name: Auld Lang Syne
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And never brought to mind?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And auld lang syne!

For auld lang syne, my dear,
For auld lang syne.
We'll take a cup o' kindness yet,
For auld lang syne.
Track Name: What Are You Doing New Year's Eve?
Maybe it’s much too early in the game
Ah, but I thought I’d ask you just the same
What are you doing New Year’s
New Year’s Eve?

Wonder whose arms will hold you good and tight
When it’s exactly twelve o’clock that night
Welcoming in the New Year
New Year’s Eve

Maybe I’m crazy to suppose
I’d ever be the one you chose
Out of a thousand invitations
You’d receive

Ah, but in case I stand one little chance
Here comes the jackpot question in advance
What are you doing New Year’s
New Year’s Eve?
