Track Name: Christmas On My Mind
Christmas on My Mind
(Craig Klein/Paul Sanchez)

I have Christmas on my mind
New Year's is right behind
I need Christmas everyday
To bring my baby back to play

Christmas joy on that holiday
That’s when her presence comes my way
I gonna see her smile some day
My baby's coming back to play

bridge:
At Christmas time we're gonna hold hands & shop on-line
Get down on our knees and pray
Soon we'll be together,
Soon we'll be together,
Soon we'll be together
New Year's Day

I have Christmas on my mind
New Year's is right behind
I need Christmas everyday
To bring my baby to play
Track Name: Hanging Up My Stockings
Hanging up My Stockings
(Chester Church)

Silent Night and the stars are bright
The fields are white with snow
Christmas trees are waiting
Lights are turned down low

Tinsel bells and tinsel shells
Reflect the firelight's hue
Seem to whisper softly
There's just one thing to do

I'm hanging up my stockings
Tonight is Christmas Eve
Want to show old Santa Claus
that I believe

Want to hear his reindeer come dancing
Through the snow
Hope their bells will wake me up
So I will know

Now I lay me down to sleep
upon this joyful night
An angel will watch over me
until the morning light

And Santa Claus will be here
That's one thing I believe
So I'm hanging up my stocking
On this Christmas Eve

Now I have seen his reindeer come dancing
Through the snow
Heard their bells, their tinsel shells
So now I know

And Santa Claus has been here
In that I do believe
So I'm putting up my stocking 'til next
Christmas Eve
Track Name: Holding You This Christmas
Holding You This Christmas
(John Boutte/Paul Sanchez)


Lets turn out the Christmas lights
Another year is through

The holidays have gone away and I'm alone with you
We'll raise our glass, for things to be
Good times we've known
Holding you this Christmas feels like home
Holding you this Christmas feels like home

Slowing down, catching up, seeing those we miss
Old folks we love, friends we know, people who insist

New years resolutions break
Before the 12th bell tones

Holding you this Christmas feels like home
Holding you this Christmas feels like home
Track Name: Christmas In New Orleans
Christmas in New Orleans
(Ingrid Lucia/Paul Sanchez)

Ain’t no snow on the ground
I’ve had some good and bad times
Living in this poor man’s town
I’d rather be in New Orleans
Only love can be found

It’s Christmas in New Orleans
(Bright) colored bulbs light the porch
Sittin’ there since last year
Plug them in on the 24th
“There’ll be a hot time in the old town”
As cold cocktails start to pour

(solo one chorus)

The band is playing
This Christmas tune
New Orleans is swinging
Away the blues

It’s Christmas in New Orleans
Jazz music plays downtown
Candles light the midnight mass
Where all good people can be found
Singing “Ave Maria”,
It is the sweetest, sweetest sound

It’s Christmas in New Orleans
Loved ones gather round today
Sharing love and gifts
As the “saints” play
I wouldn’t change a thing
On this New Orleans Christmas day
Track Name: All Jacked Up For The Holidays
All Jacked up for the Holidays
(Mary Lasseigne)

I've had a hard, hard lesson to learn, I gotta keep my faith burning, so I try, yeah I try

Holidays, joy and pain. Holidays joy and pain. I'm all jacked up for the holidays.

Oh it was hard, hard, hard, but my luck can turn, so I gotta keep my bonfire burning

So I try, yeah I try.

Holidays joy and pain. (Fa la la la la la la la)

Holidays joy and pain. (Fa la la la la la la la)

Holidays joy and pain. (Fa la la la la la la la)

Holidays joy and pain. I'm all jacked up in the holi - holi- holi -days. (Well let's move)

So hard, so happy, I'm in the middle (let's move) - I'm all jacked up for the holidays

So hard, so happy, I wanna love it like I used to

Oh we got peace and love and light and

Peace and love and light and

Peace and love and light and

Peace and love and light and (we got) Jack.
Track Name: Santa, Let Me Call You A Cab
Santa, Let Me Call You a Cab
(Alex McMurray)

The kids are crying in the bedroom
My wife is gone I don't know where
Santa, you have drunk up all my whiskey
And now you're snoring in a chair
Your boots in the pudding, your beard in the goose
Santa--why'd you turn your reindeer loose?

You disassembled Junior's wagon
You bit the head off Janey’s doll
You acted rudely with the neighbor
She’s just a little girl, that's all
Go out the back way or you're gonna get stabbed
Santa, let me call you a cab

It’s the spirit of the season
A man may have his Christmas cheer
But old Mr. Patterson down at the mall
Will never have you back next year

And here beneath the old florescent
You ask what Christmas means to me
Once more you've acted prepubescent
For all the family to see
And so it shall be until you're laid on the slab
Santa, let me call you a cab

You hung with care your Christmas stocking
Only to find a lump of coal
It’s time for you to take it walking
You’ve violated your parole
Soon those results will come back from the lab
Santa, let me call you a cab
Track Name: It's Christmas
It's Christmas
(Margie Perez/Paul Sanchez)

You're at the mall and someone takes your parking spot
Resist temptation with everything you've got
Just have a yule that's cool and find another lot
It's Christmas!

You get a present from your sister and it's clear
She gave you something you regifted from last year
Just laugh and hug be glad you got somebody near
It's Christmas!

Don't forget it's Christmas
Don't yell. Don't scream. Don't shout.
Don't forget what Christmas is all about.

Your family gathering is getting out of hand
Your drunken Uncle's kissing every girl he can
Just hide the misteltoe and find your sober aunt
It's Christmas!

Don't forget it's Christmas
Don't yell. Don't scream. Don't shout.
Don't forget what Christmas is all about.

It's about faith, and the kindness of strangers
It's about joy, and the boy in the manger

So if your holidays are sprinkled with some dread
And all the sugarplums are stomping in your head
I got a reason you should get up out of bed
It's Christmas!
It's Christmas.....
Track Name: Drunk This Christmas
Drunk this Christmas
(Paul Sanchez)

I see a stocking hanging but don't know whose it is
I hope Santa's bringing, an icy Sloe-Gin Fizz
'Cause I've spent all my money and I can hardly stand
My head feels very funny and I can't find my pants

Guess I went out drinking
Some rot-gut Christmas cheer
I got drunk this Christmas
Like I do most every year

The juke-box plays a carol, I start to feel a glow
Got a red nose just like Rudolph and I'm having drinks to go
Lonely guys will gather, tall tales will be told
But it won't really matter, I'll be passed out cold

Guess I went out drinking
Some rot-gut Christmas cheer
I got drunk this Christmas
Like I do most every year

Today I feel like talking and I don't care to who
But the girl beside me snoring looks hung over, too
Maybe I should kiss her but would she be ashamed
If I said, "Merry Christmas... baby, what's your name?"

Guess I went out drinking
Some rot-gut Christmas cheer
I got drunk this Christmas
Like I do most every year
I got drunk this Christmas
Like I do most every year
