I Want A Hippopotamus For Christmas

I want a hippopotamus for Christmas
Only a hippopotamus will do
Don't want a doll, no dinkey tinker toy
I want a hippopotamus to play with and enjoy

I want a hippopotamus for Christmas
I don't think Santa Claus will mind, do you?
He won't have to use a dirty chimney flue
Just bring him through the front door
That's the easy thing to do

I can see me now on Christmas morning
Creeping down the stairs
Oh what joy, what surprise
When I open up my eyes
To see a hippo hero standing there

I want a hippopotamus for Christmas
Only a hippopotamus will do
No crocodiles, no rhinosauruses
I only likes hippopotamuses
And hippopotamuses like me, too

(Instrumental)

Mom says a hippo, would eat me up but then
Teacher says a hippo is a vegetarian

(Instrumental)

There's lots of room for him in our two-car garage
I'd feed him there and wash him there

and give him his massage

I can see me now on Christmas morning
Creeping down the stairs
Oh what joy, what surprise
When I open up my eyes
To see a hippo hero standing there

I want a hippopotamus for Christmas
Only a hippopotamus will do
No crocodiles, or rhinosauruseses
I only likes hippopotamuses
And hippopotamuses like me, too

Joy To The World

Joy to the World , the Lord is come! Let earth receive her King;
Let every heart prepare Him room, And Heaven and nature sing,

And Heaven and nature sing,
And Heaven, and Heaven, and nature sing

He rules the world with truth and grace, And makes the nations prove
The glories of His righteousness,
And wonders of His love,

And wonders of His love,
And wonders, wonders, of His love.

My Favorite Things

Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens

Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens

Brown paper packages tied up with strings

These are a few of my favorite things

Cream colored ponies and crisp apple streudels

Doorbells and sleigh bells and schnitzel with noodles

Wild geese that fly with the moon on their wings

These are a few of my favorite things

Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes

Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes

Silver white winters that melt into springs

These are a few of my favorite things

When the dog bites, When the bee stings

When I'm feeling sad
I simply remember my favorite things

And then I don't feel so bad

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?

This, this is Christ the King

Whom shepherds guard and angels sing.

Haste, haste to bring Him laud,
The Babe, the Son of Mary.

Why lies He in such mean estate

Where ox and ass are feeding?
Good Christian, fear: for sinners here,

The silent Word is pleading.

This, this is Christ the King
Whom shepherds guard and angels sing.

Haste, haste to bring Him laud,
The Babe, the Son of Mary.

  

Hark! The Herald Angels Sing

Hark the herald angels sing,
"Glory to the newborn King!
Peace on earth and mercy mild,
God and sinners reconciled"
Joyful, all ye nations rise,

Join the triumph of the skies

With the angelic host proclaim:

"Christ is born in Bethlehem"
Hark! The herald angels sing,

"Glory to the newborn King!"

Hail the heav'n-born Prince of Peace!,

Hail the Son of Righteousness!
Light and life to all He brings,
Ris'n with healing in His wings

Mild He lays His glory by,
Born that man no more may die

Born to raise the sons of earth,

Born to give them second birth

Hark! The herald angels sing,

"Glory to the newborn King!"

Rudolph, The Red-Nosed Reindeer

You know Dasher and Dancer and Prancer and Vixen,

Comet and Cupid and Donner 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 would even say it glows
And all of the other reindeer, Used to laugh and call him names

They never let poor Rudolp, 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

(REPEAT)

Silent Night

Silent night, holy night, All is calm, all is bright

Round yon Virgin Mother and Child
Holy Infant so tender and mild
Sleep in heavenly peace

Sleep in heavenly peace

Silent night, holy night, Son of God, love's pure light

Radiant beams from Thy holy face
With the dawn of redeeming grace
Jesus, Lord, at Thy birth

Jesus, Lord, at Thy birth

  

Deck the Halls

Deck the halls with boughs of holly,

Fa la la la la, la la la la.

Tis the season to be jolly,

Fa la la la la, la la la la.

Don we now our gay apparel,

Fa la la, la la la, la la la.

Troll the ancient Yule tide carol,

Fa la la la la, la la la la.

See the blazing Yule before us,

Fa la la la la, la la la la.

Strike the harp and join the chorus.

Fa la la la la, la la la la.

Follow me in merry measure,

Fa la la la la, la la la la.

While I tell of Yule tide treasure,

Fa la la la la, la la la la.

Away in a Manger

Away in a manger, no crib for a bed
The little Lord Jesus lay down His sweet head
The stars in the bright sky looked down where he lay

The little Lord Jesus asleep on the hay.

Be near me, Lord Jesus, I ask Thee to stay

Close by me for ever and love me, I pray  

Bless all the dear children in Thy tender care

And take us to Heaven to live with Thee there

Good King Wenceslas

Good King Wenceslas looked out, on the Feast of Stephen,
When the snow lay round about, deep and crisp and even;
Brightly shone the moon that night, tho' the frost was cruel,
When a poor man came in sight, gath'ring winter fuel.

 

My Dreydal

I have a little dreidel, I made it out of clay
And when it's dry and ready, Then dreidel I shall play!

Oh, dreidel, dreidel, dreidel, I made it out of clay
And when it's dry and ready, Then dreidel I shall play!

 

My dreidel’s always playful, It loves to dance and spin

A happy game of dreidel, Come play now, let’s begin!

Oh, dreidel, dreidel, dreidel, I made it out of clay
And when it's dry and ready, Then dreidel I shall play!

   

The First Noel

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!
(REPEAT)

Jolly Old St. Nicholas

Jolly old Saint Nicholas, Lean your ear this way!
Don't you tell a single soul What I'm going to say;

Christmas Eve is coming soon; Now, you dear old man,

Whisper what you'll bring to me; Tell me if you can.

When the clock is striking twelve, When I'm fast asleep,

Down the chimney broad and black, With your pack you'll creep;
All the stockings you will find Hanging in a row;

Mine will be the shortest one, You'll be sure to know.

O Come, All Ye Faithful

O Come All Ye Faithful, Joyful and triumphant,
O come ye, O come ye to Bethlehem.
Come and behold Him, Born the King of Angels;
O come, let us adore Him, O come, let us adore Him,

O come, let us adore Him, Christ the Lord.

O Sing, choirs of angels, Sing in exultation,
Sing all that hear in heaven God's holy word.
Give to our Father glory in the Highest;
O come, let us adore Him, O come, let us adore Him,

O come, let us adore Him, Christ the Lord.

We Wish You a Merry Christmas

We wish you a Merry Christmas;
We wish you a Merry Christmas;
We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Good tidings we bring to you and your kin;
Good tidings for Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Oh, bring us a figgy pudding;
Oh, bring us a figgy pudding;
Oh, bring us a figgy pudding and a cup of good cheer

Good tidings we bring to you and your kin;
Good tidings for Christmas and a Happy New Year
