Would you mind it very much this year if we forget about a tree? And leave the tinsel on the shelf tucked next to the ornaments beneath the color wheel... No traffic jams No One day sales Let's think about the times before We wrapped up all our dreams In silk and satin ribbons colored cellophane And it's barely Halloween! Could we think about spending the time on our knees instead of joining the crowds who shove and mob each other in the streets? No one is looking in each other's eyes No hugs when they greet... No, let's not get a tree this year instead let's plant the seed. Scatter the season with love and dig deep beneath the skin. Wanna feel my heart bloom just like that Yuletide rose so fragrant If I can-- It is simple enough to say Merry Christmas but not realize the gift that lives in you. Don't want to get nuthin' this year Just wanna BE THE PROOF. I can feel it-- the sun inside I can feel it-- the roots are stretching out I can feel it-- won't you open your eyes and see the joy I can feel it-- Beyond the Winter's snow I can feel it-- Beyond the Auld Lang Syne I can feel it-- That sweet valentine I can feel it-- And this year when we end this prayer and rise to our feet We'll look above and see the branches overhead...

Somebody call up Santa Tell him he ain't gotta bring nothin for me Got what I want under the mistletoe Next to the Christmas tree. Now you might think I'm crazy 'cuz I don't want a Mercedes Or some kind a diamond ring. I don't need to get nothing from the store Just wanna hear my baby sing We're gonna have a good time this Christmas Baby it's true I don't need you to buy me a thing All I want is you. We're gonna have a good time this Christmas Baby that's real I don't need no material things Give me something that I can feel. Now if you run across something that you think i'll like Just let me say I ain't gonna try to stop your Santa-Claus'n From bringing something good my way. Now talk to Rudolph And I told Frosty To give Santa this message Got what I want under the Christmas tree And she's a sweet little gadget We're gonna have a good time this Christmas!

Go Santa 03:55
The moon was shinin' The only light Down on creation On a snowy night. Not a creature was stirrin' Everything was quiet Up in the sky Reindeer was flyin' Santa Claus Swoopin' down chimneys Comin' through back doors He got somethin' for you baby Then he got to go Red light Start flashin' You got hooves on your rooftop Somebody's screamin' Go Santa, don't stop! Santa Claus Thirty thousand feet Up in the sky I know you been waitin' on him He gonna stop by Get them cookies ready And cut him a slice Of the sweet potato pie He'll leave you something nice Santa Claus
