‘Tis the Season  
Written by: Rehya Stevens & Jon Kubis 

Deck! The Halls with boughs of holly 
Fa la la la it’s Christmas time  
Tis the season, oh by golly too 
Fa la la la la it’s Christmas time  
Join  the Yuletide celebration  
Fa la la la it’s Christmas time  
Little ones await impatiently 
Fa la la la it’s Christmas time  

Bridge:  
Johnny wants a scooter and choo choo train        
Jenny wants a little puppy that she can name  
Mom and dad wish the kids were back in school again  
But until then  

Sweep the chimney, Santa's coming  
Fa la la la it’s Christmas time  
Be of good cheer - cuz he’ll be watching you  
Fa la la la it’s Christmas time  

TAG  
‘Tis the season for that jolly ole time of the year 
‘Tis the season - it’s that jolly old time of the year 

Bridge:  
Uncle Jack is coming with a pumpkin pie 
Auntie’s making stuffing that you gotta try  
Buddy spiked the eggnog  
‘Til neither one can drive  
But that's alright  

Deck! The Halls with boughs of holly 
Fa la la la it’s Christmas time  
Tis the season, oh by golly too 
And have yourself a merry little Christmas now

Wonderland of Winter 
Written by: Rehya Stevens & Tom Keane 

Silver white snowflakes     
Are falling on peppermint tongues 
Sweet notes of cinnamon with evergreen              
Float on the breeze 
As soon as December comes  
                                 
Holly & mistletoe           
beckoning lovers to find       
Mystery packages under the tree 
shimmer with curls that wind  
When December comes  

It’s a wonderful time of the year 
Such a wonderful time of the year 

Bundle up tight                                    
Let’s go caroling out in the snow 
I heard the weatherman say that it might      
Be twenty below 
When December comes 

BRIDGE: 
Even though the skies are dark and gray 
The cardinal, she sings her song  
Echoing so sweetly in refrain 
It’s a winter wonderland  
Wonderland  

Interlude... 

Bridge: 
Even though the skies are dark and gray       
The cardinal, still sings her song 
Echoing such beauty in refrain 
In a winter wonderland 

It’s a wonderland of winter 
Winter wonderland 
It’s a wonderland of winter  
Winter wonderland   

It’s a wonderland of winter 
Winter wonderland 
It’s a wonderland of winter  
Winter wonderland 

It’s a wonderful time of the year 
Winter wonderland 
Such a wonderful time of the year 
Winter wonderland 
It’s a wonderland of winter  
Winter wonderland

Santy Claus is loadin’ up the old red sleigh 
Jingalin’ all the way 
Full of good cheer for little girls and boys 
Jingalin’ all the way 

Rudolph is shinin’ up his bright red nose

It’s time for bed   
Tuck your toesies in tight  
And you better stay put ‘cos the man in red  
Is coming down the chimney tonight 

Sweet Sugar plum dreams of the old red sleigh

Jingalin’ all the way 
Bringin’ happiness to little girls and boys  
All around on Christmas day

Marry Me For Christmas  
Written by: Rehya Stevens  

You’ve got me so high, so light 
I could fly home   
Just like the snow  

Ooo wee ooo wee 
Will you marry me for Christmas  
Ooo wee ooo wee  
Let’s honeymoon through new years eve  

You’re lookin so tight Mr. Right 
Like the star of a movie show  
And I’m all dressed up in white tonight  
There’s no better place to go  

Hear the sleigh bells  
Jinglin all the way 
To a place where 
We’ll go to say I do, I do   
And merry Christmas too 

Hear the sleigh bells  
Jinglin all the way 
To a place where 
We’ll go to say I do, I do  
And merry Christmas too 

Ooo wee ooo wee   
Say you’ll marry me 
Ooo wee ooo wee 
Let’s honeymoon through new years eve  
Ooo wee ooo wee 
Say you’ll marry me 
Come on… 
Let’s call up the minister down the road 
Pick up some flowers from Annies 
I hear she’s got a new fellow 
What’s his name, Stanley? 
Tell her to bring that little Yorkie of hers 
(Laugh) 
He’s so cute!

Christmas In My Heart  
Written By: Rehya Stevens  

Pretty lights  
Sparkling through window panes 
Children wait listening for Santa’s sleigh 

Evergreen, pumpkin pie 
And carols fill the air  
Laughter by the fireside 
And memories to share  

Christmas time is here again  
Time for love, good cheer and happiness 
For me a you  
It’s Christmas everywhere  
And it’s ours  to share  

But the most magical thing of all 
Aren’t the reindeer who fly  
It’s the mistletoe that’s occupied  
By you and I  
That makes it Christmas time  
In my heart tonight  
Tonight  
Tonight

Christmas is Coming Soon   
Written by: Rehya Stevens   

Put up the evergreen 
It's a necessity 
Christmas is coming soon 
Trim all the branches 
For the circumstances 
For Christmas is coming soon 

Get the house a 'glowing 
The snow blowers blowing 
Yes, Christmas is coming soon 
The dogs are a'barking 
The carols are harking 
Yes, Christmas is coming soon 

Call the chimney sweep 
Then head down to the beauty shop 
For you don't want to be unprepared 
Rsvp to the neighbor's down the block 
They host the event of the year 

Get dressed for the party 
Try not be tardy 
For Christmas is coming soon 
Bring something delightful, delicious to die for 
For Christmas is coming soon 

Pick up a bottle of wine 
From the little corner store 
Drop by the post office too 
Only to find there's a line around the door 
There's simply too much to do 

Squeeze sugar white mountains 
On gingerbread houses 
For Christmas is coming soon 
The kids are debating 
And your head is aching 
But, Christmas is coming soon 

The clock is tick tocking 
So hang up those stockings 
Yes, Christmas is coming soon 
And finish the shopping 
While stores are a'hopping 
Yes, Christmas is coming soon 

Wrap the presents up 
Then tie each one with a bow 
You don't want to be unprepared 
Let the chestnuts pop by the fire 
Oh, heaven knows 
There's not one detail to spare 

The kitchens a'splatter 
With gravy and batter 
And Christmas is coming soon 
The Dishes are clanging 
The door knocker's banging 
And Christmas is coming soon 

Toast to family friends 
Hey, let's pour another round 
Reminisce and share all this is new 
Fill up your plate there's enough to go around 
And plenty of leftovers too 

Wearily, wearily 
Tuck the kids into bed 
Christmas is coming soon 
Ever contrarily 
They'll sleep but barely 
'Cos Christmas is coming soon 

Happy, happy joyful 
We gather round the hearth 
At 5 am in the morning 
After presents let's go 
Build a snowman in the yard 
And by half past noon we'll be snoring 

Gone is a flurry 
The hustle, the hurry 
The new year is 'round the bend 
With new stories to tell 
We must say our farewells 
'Til the season comes 'round again 
'Til the season comes 'round again

Santa, Won’t You Hurry? 
Written by: Rehya Stevens & Tom Keane 
          
Sleigh bells are ringin’ all over town               
Carolers sing along to the sound  
Of people everywhere celebrating  
A merry Christmas  
      
Shoppers rush like a merry go round           
Merrily with the treasures they’ve found  
People everywhere anticipating  
A merry Christmas  

But I don’t care about the presents  
underneath my tree 
But I’m beggin’ you            
Santa, please - there’s one thing I need  

I know you’ve got a lot of things to do  
But, Santa won’t you hurry?  
Cuz I’m here waiting patiently  
Oh, Santa I’m tryin’ not to worry  
I know you’ve gotta take it up with your crew 
But, Santa won’t you hurry? 
Swoop on by my roof          
And bring my baby right down my chimney  

'Tis the season for parties and shows       
Invitations from people you know  
And everywhere you go are salutations 
"Have a merry Christmas"  
And every night when you light up the tree  
Is one more chance to make a new memory   
With everything aglow for merry making 
A merry Christmas 

But I’ll just hang the mistletoe  
And hold my pillow tight  
Dreamin’ of just one thing to           
To make it right  
There's on thing I need 

I know you’ve got a lot of things to do  
But, Santa won’t you hurry? 
Cuz I’ve been waiting patiently  
Oh, Santa I’m tryin’ not to worry  
I know you've gotta take it up with your crew 
But, Santa won’t you hurry? 
Swoop on by my roof               
And bring my baby right down my chimney  

I’ve been oh so good this year  
I hope you feel inspired 
To bring me just one thing                                 
I need tonight 
Santa, make it alright 

I know you’ve got a lot of things to do  
But, Santa won’t you hurry? 
Cuz I’m here waiting patiently  
Oh, Santa I’m tryin’ not to worry  
I'm sure you’ve gotta take it up with your crew 
But, Santa won’t you hurry? 
Swoop on by my roof           
And bring my baby right down my chimney  

Santa Santa, Santa won't you hurry? 
Santa won't you hurry? 
Cuz I’m here waiting patiently  
Oh, Santa I’m tryin’ not to worry  
I'm sure you’ve gotta take it up with your crew 
But, Santa won’t you hurry? 
Swoop on by my roof           
And bring my baby right down my chimney  

Santa Santa, Santa won't you hurry? 
I need my baby... 
Santa Santa, Santa won't you hurry?

 Please Come Home 
Written by: Rehya Stevens & Gene Black 

Blessings to the earth 
And good will to man 
But if I had one wish, I'd wish 
For peace with you again 
At Christmas time 

All the stars are shinin' 
On this holy, holy night 
And on this war we've been fighting 
When heaven knows 
Only love can make it right 

So this is my reason for callin' 
I wanna to tell you I'm sorry 
I was wrong, Baby please come home 
Well this is the season for giving 
And forgetting 
So remember, how I love you so 
Baby come home for Christmas 
Come home, for Christmas 

I may not have all the answers 
like the wise men do 
But we could cast away our doubts 
And we could have faith 
in what love can do 

All the stars are shinin' 
On this lonely, lonely night 
And on this love we've been hidin' 
When lord knows 
Love's the only thing that's gonna make it right 

So this is my reason for callin' 
I'm here to tell you I'm sorry 
I was wrong, Baby please come home 
And if you need a reason for giving 
And forgetting 
Just remember, how I love you so 
Baby come home for Christmas 
Please come home for Christmas 
I was so wrong 
Mmmm... 
Baby please forgive me 

Baby this is my reason for callin' 
I'm here to tell you I'm sorry 
I was wrong, please come home 
Well this is the season for giving 
And forgetting 
But remember, how I love you so 

I still love you so 
I can't let you go  
I gotta let you know 
Baby please come home 
Oh I... 
I still love you so 
I can't let you go  
I gotta let you know 
Baby please come 
Come home 
Please, please  
Say you'll come on home 
For Christmas 
I was wrong 
Baby... 
Please, please 
Baby come home for Christmas

Santa Baby 

Written by: Joan Javits & Philip Springer

Santa baby, slip a sable under the tree for me 
I've been an awful good girl 
Santa baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight 

Santa baby, a '54 convertible too, light blue 
I'll wait up for you, dear 
Santa baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight 

Think of all the fun I've missed 
Think of all the fellas that I haven't kissed 
Next year, I could be just as good 
If you check off my Christmas list 

Santa baby, I want a yacht and really that's not a lot 
I've been an angel all year 
Santa baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight 

Santa honey, one little thing I really need, the deed 
To a platinum mine 
Santa baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight 
Santa cutie, and fill my stocking with a duplex and checks 
Sign your "X" on the line 
Santa cutie, and hurry down the chimney tonight 

Come and trim my Christmas tree 
With some decorations bought at Tiffany's 
I really do believe in you 
Let's see if you believe in me 

Santa baby, forgot to mention one little thing, a ring 
I don't mean on the phone 
Santa baby, so hurry down my chimney tonight  
Hurry down the chimney tonight  
Hurry, tonight

Santa Claus is Comin' to Town 

John Frederick Coots and Haven Gillespie 

You better watch out 
You better not cry 
You better not pout 
I'm telling you why 
Santa Claus is comin' to town 

He's making a list 
He's checking it twice 
He's going to find out 
Who's naughty and nice 
Santa Claus is comin' to town 

He sees you when you're sleeping 
He knows when you're awake 
He knows when you've been bad or good 
So be good for goodness sake 

With little tin horns, little tin drums 
Rudy-toot-toots and rummy tum tums 
Santa Claus is comin' to town 
Santa Claus is comin' to town 
Santa Claus is comin' to town 

He sees you when you're sleeping 
He knows when you're awake 
He knows when you've been bad or good 
So be good for goodness sake 

You better watch out 
You better not cry 
You better not pout 
I'm telling you why 
Santa Claus is comin' to town 
Santa Claus is comin' to town 
Santa Claus is comin' 
Santa Claus is comin'  
Santa Claus is coming to town  

So you better be real nice 
Cuz Santa Claus is Comin' to Town!

All Through the Night/The Holly & the Ivy

(TRADITIONAL) 

Sleep, my child, and peace attend thee 
All through the night 
Guardian angels God will send thee 
All through the night 

Soft the drowsy hours are creeping 
Hill and dale in slumber sleeping 
I my loved ones watch are keeping 
All through the night 

(Interlude: "The Holly & the Ivy) 

O'er thy spirit gently stealing, 
Visions of delight revealing 
Breathes a pure and holy feeling 
All through the night 
While the angels sigh 
On this holy, holy night

A Christmas Song (feat. Chris Standring)

Written by: Rehya Stevens & Jon Kubis

 

Twinkling lights through window panes

Chimneys white with billowed clouds

Evergreen - fragrant on the breeze

And folks are hanging stars up on the bows

 

Yuletide gatherings

Making spirits bright

All our troubles seem worlds away

With friends stopping by

For no reason why

But to say happy holidays

 

Presents under the topless trees

Stockings hung by the fire

Little ones try not to sleep

Listening for sleigh bells in the sky

 

Future memories

Making spirits bright

All our worries seem worlds away

With friends stopping by

For no reason why

But to say happy holidays

 

Soon the winter will melt into spring

And we'll be glad to see the flowers

On a world in bloom when the birds start to sing

But until then may your dreams all come true

And happy holidays to you
