Stille nacht                                                                     1

Stille nacht, heilige nacht,
Alles slaapt, sluimer zacht.
Eenzaam waakt het hoogheilige paar,
Lieflijk Kindje met goud in het haar,
Sluimert in hemelse rust
Sluimert in hemelse rust.

Stille nacht, heilige nacht
Zoon van God, liefde lacht
Vriend’lijk om Uwe God’lijke mond,
Nu ons slaat de reddende stond,
Jezus van Uwe geboort’,
Jezus van Uwe geboort’.

Stille nacht, heilige nacht,
Herders zien ’t eerst Uw pracht;
Door der eng’len alleluja
Galmt het luide van verre en na:
Jezus de redder ligt daar,
Jezus de redder ligt daar.

O denneboom                                                            2

O denneboom, o denneboom,
Wat zijn uw takken wonderschoon
Ik heb u laatst in ’t bos zien staan,
Toen zaten er geen kaarsjes aan.
O denneboom, o denneboom,
Wat zijn uw takken wonderschoon

Er is een kindeke                                                     3

Er is een kindeke geboren op aard 2 x

’t kwam op de aarde voor ons allemaal 2 x

’t kwam op de aarde en ’t had er geen huis 2 x

’t kwam op de aarde en ’t droeg al zijn kruis 2 x

Er is een kindeke geboren in ’t strooi 2 x

’t lag in een kribje bedekt met wat hooi 2 x

Midden in de winternacht                                                4

Midden in de winternacht, ging de hemel open.
Die ons heil der wereld bracht, antwoord op ons hopen
Elke vogel zingt zijn lied, herders waarom zingt gij niet
Laat de citers slaan, blaast de fluiten aan
Laat de bel, laat de trom, laat de beltrom horen:
Christus is geboren!

Vrede was er overal, wilde dieren kwamen
Bij de schapen in de stal, en zij speelden samen.
Elke vogel zingt zijn lied, herders waarom zingt gij niet
Laat de citers slaan, blaast de fluiten aan
Laat de bel, laat de trom, laat de beltrom horen:
Christus is geboren!

Ondanks winter sneeuw en ijs bloeien de bomen,
want het aardse paradijs is vannacht gekomen.
Elke vogel zingt zijn lied, herders waarom zingt gij niet
Laat de citers slaan, blaast de fluiten aan
Laat de bel, laat de trom, laat de beltrom horen:
Christus is geboren!

Zie daar staat de morgenster, stralend in het duister
Want de dag is niet meer ver, bode van de luister
Die ons weldra op zal gaan,herders blaast uw fluiten aan
Laat de bel bim-bam, laat de trom rom-bom
Kere om, kere om, laat de bel-trom horen
Christus is geboren!

De herdertjes lagen bij nachte                                        5

De herdertjes lagen bij nachte
Zij lagen bij nacht in het veld
Zij hielden vol trouwe de wachte
Zij hadden hun schaapjes geteld


Daar hoorden zij ‘d engelen zingen
Hun liederen vloeiend en klaar
De herders naar Bethlehem gingen
’t Liep tegen het nieuwe jaar

Toen zij er te Bethlehem kwamen
Daar schoten drie stralen dooreen
Een straal van omhoog zij vernamen
Een straal uit het kribje benee


Daar vlamd’ er een straal uit hun ogen
En viel op het Kindeke teer
Zij stonden tot schreiens bewogen
En knielden bij Jesus neer

Maria die bloosde van weelde
Van ootmoed en lieflijke vreugd
De goede Sint Jozef hij streelde
Het Kindje der mensen geneugt


De herders bevalen te weiden
Hun schaapkens aan d’engelenschaar
Wij kunnen van ’t kribje niet scheiden
Wij wachten het nieuwe jaar

Hoe leit dit kindeke                                                  6

Hoe leit dit kindeke hier in de kou;
Ziet eens hoe alle zijn ledekens beven,
Ziet eens hoe dat het weent en krijt van rouw!
Na, na, na, na, na, na Kindeke teer,
Ei, zwijg toch stil, sus, sus!
En krijt niet meer.

Sa, ras, dan Herderkens, komt naar de stal:
Speelt op uw vedelkens voor dit teer lammeke:
Speelt er dan zachtje tot het slapen zal!
Na, na, na, na, na, na Kindeke teer,
Ei, zwijg toch stil, sus, sus!
En krijt niet meer.

En gij, o engeltjes, komt naderbij;
Zingt dan uw liedekens voor dit lief kindeke:
Wilt het vermaken met uw melodij;
Na, na, na, na, na, na Kindeke teer,
Ei, zwijg toch stil, sus, sus!
En krijt niet meer.

In excelsis Deo                                                        7

Eer zij God in onze dagen
eer zij God in deze tijd
mensen van het welbehagen
roept op aarde vrede uit

Gloria in excelsis Deo
Gloria in excelsis Deo

Eer zij God die onze Vader
en die onze Koning is
Eer zij God die op de aarde
naar ons toe gekomen is

Gloria in excelsis Deo
Gloria in excelsis Deo

Lam van God, Gij hebt gedragen
alle schuld tot elke prijs
geef in onze levensdagen
peis en vree, kyrieleis

Gloria in excelsis Deo
Gloria in excelsis Deo

Komt laten wij aanbidden                                                 8

Komt allen tezamen, jubelend van vreugde
Komt nu, o komt nu naar Bethlehem
Ziet nu de vorst der eng’len hier geboren
Komt laten wij aanbidden
Komt laten wij aanbidden
Komt laten wij aanbidden, die Koning!

De hemelse eng’len riepen eens de herders
Weg van de kudde naar ’t schamel dak
Spoeden ook wij ons met eerbied’ge schreden
Komt laten wij aanbidden
Komt laten wij aanbidden
Komt laten wij aanbidden, die Koning!

O, Kind, ons geboren, sluim’rend in de kribbe
Neem onze liefd’ in genade aan
U die ons liefhebt, U behoort ons harte
Komt laten wij aanbidden
Komt laten wij aanbidden
Komt laten wij aanbidden, die Koning!

Nu zijt wellekome                                                              9

Nu zijt wellekome Jesu, lieve Heer,
Gij komt van alzo hoge, van alzo veer.
Nu zijt wellekome van de hoge hemel neer.
Hier al op dit aardrijk zijt Gij gezien nooit meer.
Kyriëleis.

Herders op den velde hoorden een nieuw lied,
dat Jezus was geboren, zij wisten ’t niet.
“Gaat aan gene straten en gij zult Hem vinden klaar;
Bethl’em is de stede, daar is ’t geschied voorwaar.”
Kyriëleis.

Wijzen uit het Oosten, uit zo verren land,
zij zochten onzen Here met offerand.
Z’ offerden ootmoediglijk mirr’, wierook ende goud
t’ ere van dat kinde, dat alle ding behoudt.
Kyriëleis.

Why couldn’t it be Christmas everyday – Bianca Ryan          9a

I wait for Christmas all year long
How I wish I that I could only change it
Take the calendar and re-arrange it

Then every day would be so nice
Candy canes and all the snow that’s fallin’
Every summer we’d be deck the hallin’

        (every little wish you’d have would turn out true)

        every day a Christmas card from me to you
So I pray, and I wait, and I hope that it doesn’t come late

chorus 1

        Why couldn’t it be Christmas everyday
        Riding ‘round with Santa on his sleigh
        Don’t you know if you’ll be good just like you should

        you’ll here those jingle bells ring

chorus 2

        Why couldn’t it be Christmas every night
        Holding hands beneath the twinkling lights
        When you say that everyday’s a holiday

        you’ll here those calenders sing

Why couldn’t it be Christmas Christmas Christmas everyday
Just believe in Christmas Christmas Christmas all the way

And every time I’d see your eyes (everytime I see your eyes)

There’s some mistletoe that’s right above you
With the Christmas gifts to say I love you
There are some that say it’s just a dream
But close your eyes and you can almost see it
All you have to do is just believe it

        (Maybe there’s a gift for every girl and boy)
        Maybe there’s a stocking full of Christmas Joy
So I pray, and I wait, and I hope that it doesn’t come late

chorus 1   Why couldn’t it be .. etc Just believe in .. etc

Whatever kind of weather
Summer, Spring and Fall will melt together
Now I can see it clear
That we can make December last throughout the year   ….(omhoog)    chorus 1  chorus 2   Why couldn’t it be Christmas!

A Christmas song – Shawn Philips                                                   9b

He came in the way that the good things come

with the light shining in His eyes
And most people thought He was another little babe

that wrinkled up his face and cried
And then 1 wise man, 2 wise men

3 wise men come afrom afar    
And the many colored men knew this was a special Child

and that’s why they followed that star         doobiedoopdoop etc


He came east and west, then He found himself

in fourty day and fourty night
He gave a lot of love to everyone He met

and He told them that the way was right
And then the people drew near, said they want to hear

what’s all this talking about
And everybody loved that Man so much

that they wanted to laugh and shout          doobiedoopdoop etc

But a bunch of people said He had the wrong idea

so they told Him to forget that thought
So a secretive society came about

and they were looking for the love they sought
And then the people in power said: We gave You an order

Go back and be a carpenter
But the shining in His face told him He was right
So they put Him on a cross right there             doowdoowdoowdoow

    -intermezzo-

                                                                  Doobiedoopdoop etc

Now He’s been gone for a mighty long time
We’ve forgotten what the Man had said, yeah
Look at your life in the right direction

and be sure to look inside your head
And when you get around your Christmas tree
Be sure to give all you can
’Cause the more you’re gonna give, the more you’re gonna get

To be a woman or a gentleman

Now Christmas and Easter ain’t the only time

that we should be that way
Love all the people and help your neighbour

now each and every single day
And when you do that, you’ll feel where it’s at
You’ll feel what I’m talking around
And then the whole wide world is gonna live in peace

and everybody’s gonna be found


Let it go – Frozen          voorstukje                                              9c                                    

The snow glows white on the mountain tonight

not a footprint to be seen
A kingdom of isolation and it looks like I’m the queen

The wind is howling like this swirling storm inside
Couldn’t keep it in, heaven knows I’ve tried

Don’t let them in, don’t let them see
Be the good girl you always have to be
Conceal, don’t feel, don’t let them know
Well, now they know

Let it go, let it go, can’t hold it back anymore
Let it go, let it go, turn away and slam the door
I don’t care what they’re going to say
Let the storm rage on
The cold never bothered me anyway


It’s funny how some distance makes everything seem small
And the fears that once controlled me can’t get to me at all

It’s time to see what I can do
To test the limits and break through
No right, no wrong, no rules for me, I’m free

Let it go, let it go, I am one with the wind and sky
Let it go, let it go, you’ll never see me cry
Here I stand and here I’ll stay
Let the storm rage on

My power flurries through the air into the ground
My soul is spiraling like frozen fractals all around
And one thought crystallizes like an icy blast
I’m never going back, the past is in the past

Let it go, let it go, and I’ll rise like the break of dawn
Let it go, let it go, that perfect girl is gone
Here I stand in the light of day, let the storm rage on
The cold never bothered me anyway

All that I want – Weepies                                                       9d

Out in the harbor
The ships come in, it’s Christmastime
The kids all holler carols ‘cross the water
Stars that shine

All that I want, all that I want

Above the rooftops
The full moon dips its golden spoon
I wait on clip-clops, deer might fly
Why not? I met you

All that I want, all that I want

And when the night is falling
Down the sky at midnight
Another year is stalling
Far away a good bye, good night

All that I want., all that I want, all that I want

So small a turning
The world grows older every day
An ache, a yearning
Soften when I hear you say

All that I want, all that I want

And when the cold wind’s blowing
Snow drifts through the pine trees
In houses lights are glowing
Likewise in your eyes that find me here

With all that I want.

Out in the harbor
The ships come in, it’s Christmastime
It’s Christmastime
It’s Christmastime

Niets is Cooler dan Kerstmis  –  kvk                                           9e

Niets is cooler dan Kerstmis
Als iedereen bij elkaar is
Dan mag ik laat naar bed
En hoef ik niet naar school, wohoho

Niets is cooler dan Kerstmis
Als de zon schijnt en het koud is
De mooiste tijd van het jaar
Want we zijn met elkaar, echt waar
Niets is cooler dan Kerst-Kerstmis          (Here we go, here we go!)

Hey, ik voel de kriebels in mijn buik
Ik kijk er al een jaar naar uit
Dat ik de kerstboom mag versieren
Hey, nodig al je vrienden uit
En voel je welkom bij ons thuis
Er valt altijd wel iets te vieren

We hopen op een beetje sneeuw
Wie weet valt het nog deze eeuw
Yes, Oud en Nieuw komt dichterbij

refrein:
Niets is cooler dan Kerstmis
Als iedereen bij elkaar is
Dan mag ik laat naar bed en hoef ik niet naar school, hohoho

Niets is cooler dan Kerstmis
Als de zon schijnt en het koud is
De mooiste tijd van het jaar want we zijn met elkaar, echt waar
Niets is cooler dan Kerst-Kerstmis

                Eén ding mogen we nooit vergeten
                Heel veel mensen leven niet in vrede
                Kom laten we een wens doen samen
                Voor iedereen die dat nodig heeft
Niets is cooler dan Kerstmis          Na nananana nana 3x
oooooh

Refrein   2x     Nee niets is cooler dan Kerst-Kerstmis

Christmas was a friend of mine – Fay Lovsky           9f

<aaahhhhhhh>

Every year lasted too long – with Easter bunnies,

birthday cards and seaside outings in the summer
only to break the long – gap of time that stretched

between the one and the other

Christmas

Christmas in the sixties was fine
With candles, goodies, presents, and wine
‘Peace on Earth’ was real, it seemed
And LOVE a word as yet not obscene, no no


Watching the season parade – dying trees and neon spars

and plastic Santas for a penny

urging to celebrate  – . . . (ding dong ding dong)

Here comes another

Christmas

Christmas was a jolly old time
With Billy Smart’s and Auld Lang Syne
‘Peace on Earth’ was real, it seemed
And LOVE a word as yet not obscene, no no


solo


        Christmas tree smell and those silvery bells
        Christmas was a friend of mine

<aaahhhhhhh>
Pa pa pam pam paadam, pa pa pam pam paadam
Christmas was a friend, o’mine
Merry-, merry-, merry-, merry-, merry Christmas everybody
All around the world Happy Newyear

Santa Claus is back in town – Elvis                            9g

(Christmas, Christmas, Christmas)

Well, it’s Christmas time pretty baby
And the snow is falling on the ground (Christmas, Christmas)
Well, it’s Christmas time pretty baby
And the snow is on the ground (Christmas, Christmas)
Well, you be a real good little girl
Santa Claus is back in town (Christmas, Christmas)

Got no sleigh with reindeer, no sack on my back
You’re gonna see me coming in a big black Cadillac

Whoa oh it’s Christmas time pretty baby
And the snow is falling on the ground
Well, you be a real good little baby
Santa Claus is back in town

(Christmas, Christmas, Christmas)

Hang up your pretty stockings, turn off the light
Santa Claus is coming, down your chimney tonight

Whoa oh oh oh it’s Christmas time pretty baby
And the snow is falling on the ground
Well, you be a real good little baby
Santa Claus is back in town


(Christmas, Christmas, Christmas)

I’m dreaming tonight of a place I love
Even more than I usually do
And although I know it’s a long road back
I promise you

Rudolph the red nosed reindeer                         12

You know Dasher and Dancer
and Prancer and Vixen,
Comet and Cupid
and Donder 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 could 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 all the reindeer loved him,
as they shouted out with glee,
Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer,
you’ll go down in history.

I’m dreaming of a white Christmas              13

I’m dreaming of a white Christmas
Just like the ones I used to know
Where the treetops glisten and children listen
To hear sleighbells in the snow

I’m dreaming of a white Christmas
With every Christmas card I write
May your days be merry and bright
And may all your Christmases be white

I’m dreaming of a white Christmas
With every Christmas card I write
May your days be merry and bright
And may all your Christmases be white

It’s the most wonderful time of the year               14

It’s the most wonderful time of the year

And everyone telling

It’s the hap-happiest season of all

With those holiday greetings

and gay happy meetings
When friend come to call
It’s the hap-happiest season of all


BRUG  

There’ll be parties for hosting, marshmallows for toasting
And carolling out in the snow
There’ll be scary ghost story and tales of the glories

of Christmas long, long ago

It’s the most wonderful time of the year

There’ll be much mistletoe-ing

and hearts will be glowing
when love ones are near

It’s the most wonderful time of the year

Do they know it’s christmas                                            15


It’s Christmas time
There’s no need to be afraid
At Christmas time, we let in light and we banish shade
And in our world of plenty we can spread a smile of joy
Throw your arms around the world at Christmas time

But say a prayer
Pray for the other ones
At Christmas time it’s hard, but when you’re having fun
There’s a world outside your window
And it’s a world of dread and fear
Where the only water flowing is the bitter sting of tears
And the Christmas bells that ring there are the clanging
chimes of doom
Well tonight thank God it’s them instead of you


And there won’t be snow in Africa this Christmas time
The greatest gift they’ll get this year is life
(Oooh) Where nothing ever grows
No rain nor rivers flow
Do they know it’s Christmas time at all?

(Here’s to you) raise a glass for everyone
(Here’s to them) underneath that burning sun
Do they know it’s Christmas time at all?

Feed the world       Feed the world

Feed the world

Let them know it’s Christmastime again

Imagine                                                                             16

Imagine there’s no Heaven
It’s easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today

Imagine there’s no countries
It isn’t hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace

You may say that I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope someday you’ll join us
And the world will be as one

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world

You may say that I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope someday you’ll join us
And the world will live as one

At the fireplace while we watch the chestnuts pop

There’s a happy feelin’ nothing in the world can buy
When they pass around the chocolat and the pumpkin pie
It’ll nearly be like a picture print by Currier and Ives
These wonderful things are the things

Happy Xmas (war is over)                                  20

So this is Christmas and what have you done
Another year over and a new one just begun
And so this is Christmas, I hope you have fun
The near and the dear one, the old and the young

A very Merry Christmas
And a happy New Year
Let’s hope it’s a good one
Without any fear

And, so this is Christmas for weak and for strong
For rich and the poor ones, the world is so wrong
And so happy Christmas for black and for white
For yellow and red ones, let’s stop all the fight

A very Merry Christmas
And a happy New Year
Let’s hope it’s a good one
Without any fear

And, so this is Christmas and what have we done
Another year over, and a new one just begun
And, so happy Christmas, we hope you have fun
The near and the dear one, the old and the young

A very Merry Christmas
And a happy New Year
Let’s hope it’s a good one
Without any fear


War is over, if you want it, etc.

Jingle bells                                                                       21

Dashing through the snow, in a one-horse open sleigh,
Over the fields we go, laughing all the way.
Bells on bob-tails ring, making spirits bright,
What fun it is to ride and sing a sleighing song tonight.

Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way!
O what fun it is to ride in a one-horse open sleigh.
Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way!
O what fun it is to ride in a one-horse open sleigh.

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 we got upsot

Jingle bells,  jingle bells, …

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

Jingle bells,  jingle bells, …

Now the ground is white, go it while you’re young
Take the girls tonight, and sing this sleighing song;
Just get a bob-tailed bay, two-forty as his speed
Hitch him to an open sleigh and crack! you’ll take the lead     Jingle bells,  jingle bells, …

Winter wonderland                                                        22

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

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.

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.

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.

In the meadow we can build a snowman,
And pretend that he’s a circus clown
We’ll have lots of fun with mister snowman,
Until the other kids knock him down.

When it snows, ain’t it thrilling,
Though your nose gets a chilling
We’ll frolic and play, the Eskimo way,
Walking in a winter wonderland.

We are the world                                                            23

There comes a time when we hear a certain call
When the world must come together as one
There are people dying

and it’s time to lend a hand to life
There greatest gift of all

We can’t go on pretending day by day
That someone, somehow will soon make a change
We are all a part of God’s great big family
And the truth, you know love is all we need

REFREIN:
We are the world, we are the children
We are the ones who make a brighter day so let’s start giving
There’s a choice we’re making

we’re saving our own lives
It’s true we’ll make a better day, just you and me


Send them your heart so they’ll know that someone cares
And their lives will be stronger and free
As God has shown us by turning stones to bread
So we all must lend a helping hand

REFR


When you’re down and out

there seems no hope at all
But if you just believe there’s no way we can fall
Let us realize that a change can only come
When we stand together as one

Last christmas                                                               24

Last christmas I gave you my heart
But the very next day you gave it away
This year, to save me from tears
I’ll give it to someone special

– –
Once bitten and twice shy
I keep my distance but you still catch my eye
Tell me baby Do you recognize me?
Well, it’s been a year It doesn’t surprise me

(Happy Christmas) I wrapped it up and sent it
With a note saying “I love you”, I meant it
Now I know what a fool I’ve been
But if you kissed me now I know you’d fool me again

Last christmas etc

A crowded room, friends with tired eyes
I’m hiding from you and your soul of ice
My god I thought you were someone to rely on. Me?
I guess I was a shoulder to cry on

A face on a lover with a fire in his heart
A man under cover but you tore me apart
Now I’ve found a real love you’ll never fool me again

Last christmas etc

A face on a lover with a fire in his heart
A man under cover buy you tore him apart
Maybe next year I’ll give it to someone
I’ll give it to someone special

Rockin around the Christmas Tree                            25

Santa baby, a ‘54 convertible too, light blue

All I want for christmas is you                                                         27

I don’t want a lot for Christmas, there is just one thing I need

        I just want you for my own, more than you could ever know

        Make my wish come true, All I want for Christmas is you

I don’t want a lot for Christmas, there is just one thing I need

I don’t care about the presents underneath the Christmas tree

Santa Claus won’t make me happy with a toy on Christmas day

        I just want you for my own, more than you could ever know

        Make my wish come true, All I want for Christmas is you

I won’t ask for much this Christmas, I won’t even wish for snow

And I, I just wanna keep on waiting underneath the mistletoe

I won’t make a list and send it to the North Pole for St. Nick

I won’t even stay awake to hear those magic reindeer click

        Cause I just want you here tonight holding onto me so tight

        What more can I do, oh baby, all I want for Christmas is you

                All the lights are shining so brightly everywhere

                And the sound of childrens’ laughter fills the air

                And everyone is singing, I hear those sleigh bells ringing

                Santa won’t you bring me the one I really need

                Won’t you please bring my baby to me, quickly

I don’t want a lot for Christmas, this is all I’m asking for

I just wanna see my baby standing right outside my door

        I just want you for my own, more than you could ever know

        Make my wish come true, all I want for Christmas is you

All I want for Christmas is you, baby

Are you hanging up a stocking on your wall?
It’s the time that every Santa has a ball
Does he ride a red nosed reindeer?
Has a ton upon his sleigh?
Do the fairies keep him sober for a day?

chorus:

So here it is, Merry Christmas

everybody’s having fun

look to the future now, it’s only just begun.

Are you waiting for the family to arrive?
Are you sure you’ve got the room to spare inside?
Does your Granny always tell you
That the old songs are the best?
Then she’s up and rock ‘n’ rollin’ with the rest.

 chorus

brug:
       What will your Daddy do when he sees your

       Mamma kissing Santa Claus? Ah-ha…

Are you hanging up a stocking on your wall?
Are you hoping that the snow will to start to fall?
Do you ride on down the hillside
In a buggy you have made?  

When you land upon your head

then you’ve been slayed.

chorus

Jingle bell rock                                                       30

jingle bell swing and jingle bell ring

now the jingle hop has begun

Jingle bell, jingle bell, jingle bell rock
jingle bell chime and jingle bell time
dancing and prancing 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 riding in a one horse sleigh

Giddy up jingle horse pick up your feet
Jingle around the clock
We’ll mix and mingle and a jingling beat
That’s the jingle bell rock

What a bright time .. etc  

2000 miles                                                      31

He’s gone, 2000 miles- it’s very far.
The snows falling down.
It’s colder day by day.

I miss you.

The children were singing,
He’ll be back at Christmas time.

And these frozen and silent nights,
Sometimes in a dream, you appear.
Outside under the purple sky,
Diamonds in the snow, sparkle.

Our hearts were singing,
It felt like Christmas time.

*

2000 miles. is very far through the snow
I’ll think of you wherever you go.

*


He’s gone, 2000 miles. It’s very far.
The snows falling down, it’s colder day by day.
I miss you.


I can hear people singing,
It must be Christmas time.
I hear people singing,
It must be Christmas time.

I’m driving home for Christmas
Oh, I can’t wait to see those faces
I’m driving home for Christmas, yeah
Well I’m moving down that line

And it’s been so long but I will be there
I sing this song to pass the time away
Driving in my car, driving home for Christmas


It’s gonna take some time but I’ll get there


Top to toe in tailbacks
Oh, I got red lights all around
But soon there’ll be a freeway, yeah
Get my feet on holy ground

So I sing for you, though you can’t hear me
When I get trough and feel you near me
Driving in my car, I’m driving home for Christmas


Driving home for Christmas with a thousand memories
I take a look at the driver next to me
He’s just the same, just the same

        tussenstukje en solootje

Top to toe in tailbacks    etc.

So I sing for you, though you can’t hear me   etc.

Put a little love in your heart                                          36

Think of your fellow man, lend him a helping hand
Put a little love in your heart
You see, it’s getting late, oh, please don’t hesitate
Put a little love in your heart

And the world will be a better place
And the world will be a better place for you and me
You just wait and see

Another day goes by, and still the children cry
Put a little love in your heart
If you want the world to know, we won’t let hatred grow
Put a little love in your heart

And the world will be a better place
And the world will be a better place for you and me
You just wait and see. Wait and see

Take a good look around and if you’re lookin’ down
Put a little love in your heart

Put a little love in your heart
And the world will be a better place
And the world will be a better place for you and me
You just wait and see

Happy New Year                                                                           37


No more champagne, and the fireworks are through
Here we are, me and you
Feeling lost and feeling blue


It’s the end of the party and the morning seems so grey
So unlike yesterday
Now’s the time for us to say…

chorus:    Happy New Year, happy New Year
                May we all have a vision now and then
                Of a world where every neighbour is a friend
                Happy New Year, happy New Year
                May we all have our hopes, our will to try
                If we don’t, we might as well lay down and die
                You and I


Sometimes I see how the brave new world arrives
And I see how it thrives
In the ashes of our lives


Oh yes, man is a fool and he thinks he’ll be okay
Dragging on, feet of clay
Never knowing he’s astray –  keeps on going, anyway…

chorus

Seems to me now that the dreams we had before
Are all dead, nothing more
Than confetti on the floor


It’s the end of a decade, in another ten years time
Who can say what we’ll find
What lies waiting down the line –  in the end of eighty-nine…  

  chorus

Blue Christmas                                                            38

I’ll have a blue Christmas without you
I’ll be so blue just thinking about you
Decorations of red on a green Christmas tree
Won’t be the same dear, if you’re not here with me

And when those blue snowflakes start falling
That’s when those blue memories start calling
You’ll be doin’ all right, with your Christmas of white
But I’ll have a blue, blue blue blue Christmas

I’ll have a blue Christmas without you
I’ll be so blue just thinking about you
       You’ll be doin’ all right, with your Christmas of white
       But I’ll have a blue, blue blue blue Christmas
       But I’ll have a blue, blue Christmas

Santa Claus is coming to town                                       40

You better watch out, you better not cry
Better not pout, I am telling you why
Santa Claus is coming to town

He’s making a list, he’s checking it twice
He’s gonna find out who’s naughty or nice
Santa Claus is coming to town

            He sees you when you’re sleeping
       And he knows when you’re awake
       And he knows if you’ve been bad or good
       So be good for goodness sake

The Christmas song                                           41

Chestnuts roasting on an open fire
Jack Frost nipping at your nose
Yule-tide 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 aglow
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 mother’s child is gonna spy
To see if reindeer really know how to fly

And so I’m offering this simple phrase
To kids from one to ninety-two
Although it’s been said many times, many ways
Merry Christmas to you

       O Little Town Of Bethlehem                                  44

O little town of Bethlehem,
How still we see the lie!
Above thy deep and dreamless sleep
The silent stars go by;


Yet in thy dark streets shineth
The everlasting Light;
The hopes and fears of all the years
Are met in thee to-night.

For Christ is born of Mary,
And gathered all above,
While mortals sleep, the angels keep
Their watch of wondering love.


O morning stars, together
Proclaim the holy birth!
And praises sing to God the King,
And peace to men on earth.    

Solo


How silently, how silently,
The wondrous gift is given!
So God imparts to human hearts
The blessings of his heaven


No ear may hear his coming,
But in this world of sin,
Where meek souls will receive him, still
The dear Christ enters in.

The hopes and fears of all the years
Are met in thee tonight

The first Noel                                                              46


The first Noel the angels did say
Was to certain poor shepherds in fields as they lay:
In fields where they lay keeping their sheep
On a cold winter’s 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.


This star drew nigh to the north-west;
O’er Bethlehem it took it’s rest,
And there it did both stop and stay,
Right over the place where Jesus lay.

Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel,
Born is the King of Israel.

Beautiful star of Bethlehem                                   47

Oh beautiful star of Bethlehem
Shining far through shadows dimmed
Giving the light for those who long have gone
Guiding the wise men on their way
Unto the place where Jesus lay
Oh beautiful star of Bethlehem shine on

Oh beautiful star the hope of light
Guiding the pilgrims through the night
Over the mountains ’till the break of dawn
Into the land of perfect day
It will give out a lovely ray
Oh beautiful star of Bethlehem shine on
      
chorusOh beautiful star of Bethlehem
       Shine upon us until the glory dawns
       Give us a light to light the way
       Unto the land of perfect day
       Oh beautiful star of Bethlehem shine on


Oh beautiful star the hope, the grace
For the redeem the good and the blessed
Yonder in glory when the crowd is one
Jesus is now the star divine
Brighter and brighter he will shine
Oh beautiful star of Bethlehem shine on

Mary’s Boy Child                                                                          48

A-capella

Mary’s boy child Jesus Christ, was born on Christmas Day.
And man will live for evermore, because of Christmas Day.

Long time ago in Bethlehem, so the Holy Bible say,
Mary’s boy child Jesus Christ, was born on Christmas Day.

Chorus:
Hark, now hear the angels sing, a king was born today,
And man will live for evermore, because of Christmas Day.
Mary’s boy child Jesus Christ, was born on Christmas Day.

While shepherds watch their flock by night,
They see a bright new shining star,
They hear a choir sing a song, the music seem to come from afar.

chorus

Mmmmmmm


brug:       For a moment the world was aglow, all the bells

                rang out, there were tears of joy

                and laughter, people shouted “Let everyone know,

                there is hope for all to find peace.”

1 toon omhoog

Now Joseph and his wife, Mary, came to Bethlehem that night,
They found no place to bear her child, not a single room was in sight.

And then they found a little nook, in a stable all forlorn,
And in a manger cold ‘n’ dark, Mary’s little boy was born.

Hark, now hear the angels sing, a king was born today,
And man will live for evermore, because of Christmas Day.
Mary’s boy child Jesus Christ, was born on Christmas Day.

Oh My Lord you sent your son to save us

Oh My Lord your very self you gave us

Oh My Lord that sin would not enslave us

And love may reign once more

Oh my Lord, when in the crib they found him
Oh my Lord, a golden halo crowned him
Oh my Lord, they gathered all around him
To see him and adore

Oh my Lord, with the child’s adoration
Oh my lord, there came great jubilation
Oh my Lord, and full of admiration
They realized what they had

Oh my Lord, they had become to doubt you
Oh my Lord, what did they know about you
Oh my Lord, but they were lost without you
They needed you so bad

Oh my Lord, with the child’s adoration
Oh my lord, there came great jubilation
Oh my Lord, and full of admiration
They realized what they had

Frosty the Snowman                                                       49

Frosty the Snowman was a jolly happy soul
With a corncob pipe and a button nose
And two eyes made out of coal

Frosty the Snowman is a fairytale 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

                Thumpety thump thump

                look at Frosty go

                Thumpety thump thump

                over the hills and snow

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


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!

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  etc.

It’s gonna be a cold cold Christmas                              50

According to the radio
Warmer weather is on the way
The chances are we won’t be getting snow
But even if the sun shines
From now to Christmas day
As far as I’m concerned I know

chorus:
It’s gonna be a cold, cold Christmas without you
Dreaming of those warm, warm, lazy summer days
It’s gonna be a long and lonely Christmas without you
Missing you my darling in oh so many ways


Yesterday I saw your mum and dad
We bought our cards together
I fit the presents at the Christmas tree
And as I write this letter
It’s warm inside

the log fire’s burning bright oh darling

if only you were here to make it right

chorus

1 omhoog

I didn’t bother with the mistletoe
You won’t be here to kiss me
The only consolation that I’ve got
I know for sure you’ll miss me
It won’t be long

until you’re home again and we can

share these magic moments, but ’til then

chorus

Baby, it’s cold outside                                             51

I really can’t stay                                      – But baby it’s cold outside
I’ve got to go away                                   – But baby it’s cold outside
This evening has been                            – Been hoping that you’d drop in
so very nice                                              – I’ll hold your hands

                                                                            they’re just like ice


My mother will start to worry                   – Beautiful, what’s your hurry?
My father will be pacing the floor            – Listen to the fireplace roar
So really I’d better scurry                         – Beautiful, please don’t hurry
Well maybe just a soda-pop more          – Put some records on while I pour

The neighbors might think                       – Baby, it’s bad out there
Say, was that a wink?                              – No cabs to be had out there
I wish I knew how                                     – Your eyes are like starlight
to break this spell                                     – I’ll take your hat, your hair looks swell


I ought to get home for dinner                  – Mind if I move in closer?
So it’s time for me to cast you aside     -What’s the sense of hurting my pride?
I really can’t stay                                        – Baby don’t hold out    

                 
                            Baby it’s cold outside



I simply must go                                       – Baby it’s cold outside
So thanks for the show                           – But baby it’s cold outside
The welcome has been                           – How lucky that you dropped in
so nice and warm                                    – Look out the window at that storm


My sister will be suspicious                     – Gosh, your lips look delicious
My brother will be there at the door                  – Waves upon a tropical shore
My maiden aunt’s mind is vicious           – Gosh, your lips are delicious
Well maybe just a few minutes more      – never such a blizzard before

I’ve got to get home                                 – Baby, you’ll freeze out there
Say, lend me your comb                          – It’s up to your knees out there
You’ve really been grand                         – I thrill when you touch my hand
But don’t you see                                     – How can you do this thing to me?
There’s bound to be talk tomorrow         – Think of my life long sorrow
At least there will be plenty implied        – If you caught pneumonia and died
I really can’t stay                                      – Get over that hold out


                            Baby it’s cold, baby it’s cold outside

Once upon a long ago – Paul McCartney                           52

Picking up scales and broken chords

Puppy dog tails in the House Of Lords
Tell me darling, what can it mean?

Making up moons in a minor key
What have those tunes got to do with me?
Tell me darling, where have you been?

Once upon a long ago
Children searched for treasure
Nature’s plan went hand in hand with pleasure.
such pleasure.

solo

Blowing balloons on a windy day
Desolate dunes with a lot to say

tell me darling, what have you seen?

Once upon a long ago
Children searched for treasure
Nature’s plan went hand in hand with pleasure.
my pleasure.


Playing guitars on an empty stage
Counting the bars of an iron cage
Tell me darling, what can it mean?
Picking up scales and broken chords
Puppy dog tails in The House of Lords
Help me darling, what does it mean?

Hard candy Christmas – Dolly Parton                                       53

Hey, maybe I’ll dye my hair
Maybe I’ll move somewhere
Maybe I’ll get a car
Maybe I’ll drive so far that I’ll lose track
Me, I’ll bounce right back


Maybe I’ll sleep real late
Maybe I’ll lose some weight
Maybe I’ll clear my junk
Maybe I’ll just get drunk on apple wine
Me, I’ll be just

Fine and dandy
Lord it’s like a hard candy Christmas
I’m barely getting through tomorrow
But still I won’t let
Sorrow bring me way down. I’ll be fine etc.

Hey, maybe I’ll learn to sow

maybe I’ll just lie low
Maybe I’ll hit the bars
Maybe I’ll count the stars until dawn
Me, I will go on

Maybe I’ll settle down
Maybe I’ll just leave town
Maybe I’ll have some fun
Maybe I’ll meet someone and make him mine
Me, I’ll be just

Chorus

    omhoog

Chorus

‘Cause I’ll be fine
Oh, I’ll be fine

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas – Bing Crosby     54

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas

everywhere 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 every store

But the prettiest sight to see, is the holly that will be,

on your own front door.

Chorus:

A pair of hop along 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

everywhere 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

solo

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas

toys in every store…..

But the prettiest sight to see….. is the holly that will be,

on your own front door

sure it’s Christmas once more.

It’s Christmastime – Donna                                 55

you are my friend

my family

we get along so easily

if you fit in

then join us now

but if you don’t

then get away from us

we don’t want you here

we will fight and knock you down

chorus       Why don’t we just love each other

                   why don’t we trust one another

                   is there still hope for us

                   how did we get so lost

                   why won’t we just free each other

                   after all we all need each other

                   let’s try to get along

                   christmastime is here for us

my faith was gone

all hope was lost

I saw no light, I had no trust

but deep within

a spark of life

always comes up so strong

tells me that I belong

and that we all can get along

         chorus

                   why don’t we trust one another

                   why don’t we use this time

                   maybe we’ll be allright

         why won’t we just free each other

         after all we all need each other

         let’s try to get along

         Christmastime is here for us

Christmastime

it’s Christmastime    herh.
