Track Name: Only on Weekends - Christmas Everyday
Lyrics by: Harry Rose

I don’t need a plastic tree
Snow on the ground does not mean a thing to me
But I know this much is true
That all I want for Christmas is you
(All I want for Christmas is you)
Mistletoe is hung round my home
But I don’t care because I’m all alone
And no one can kiss me the way that you do
So all I want for Christmas is you
(All I want for Christmas is you)

You make every day
(You make every day)
You make every day
(You make every day)
You make every day feel like Christmas
You make every day
(You make every day)
You make every day
(You make every day)
You make every day feel like Christmastime

The stockings are hung by the chimney with care
But I won’t care until I see your name up there
Hanging next to mine by the flu
Cause all I want for Christmas is you
(All I want for Christmas is you)
If Santa passes by me tonight
I know I will still be alright
Knowing that you feel the way that I do
And all I want for Christmas is you
(All I want for Christmas is you)

You make every day
(You make every day)
You make every day
(You make every day)
You make every day feel like Christmas
You make every day
(You make every day)
You make every day
(You make every day)
You make every day feel like Christmas

You make every day feel like Christmas
You make every day feel like Christmas

Lyrics by: Wham!

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

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
I just want you for my own
More than you could ever know
Make my wish come true
Baby, all I want for Christmas is you
All I want for Christmas is you
Track Name: Russ The Admiral - Why Can't Every Day Be Like Christmas
Lyrics by: Red West

I hear the bells
Saying christmas is near
They ring out
To tell the world
That this
Is the season of cheer
I hear a choir
Singing sweetly
Somewhere
And a glow
Fills my heart
I'm at peace
With the world
As the sound
Of their singing
Fills the air
Oh
Why can't every day
Be like christmas
Why can't that feeling
Go on endlessly
For if everyday
Could be just
Like christmas
What a wonderful world
This would be
I hear a child
Telling Santa
What to bring
And the smile
Upon his tiny face
Is worth more to me
Than anything
Track Name: KinGGeeK - 50 Ways to Catch-A-Santa
Lyrics by: Alex Marlys

Didn't catch Santa until I was 23
tried every year, but yeah
I failed miserably
but when I caught him
(when I caught him)
he looked straight at me and said
"Son you're the first who found me"
(oh, word?)
...and then santa tried to drown me...
(say what?)

after he found my gills he explained all of this;
(your gills?)
it is illegal for a santa clause to reminis
(im sure)
and just by being there,
(just by being there)
i jeopardized christmas
(jeopardized christmas)
then he leaped out through the chimney
but i just could not leave it be


caught him again going through his big bag of tricks
3 years must have gone by
cause by then i was 26
but that old fat man
he hadnt aged a bit
the north pole is where they freeze souls..

sweet santa clause are you sick of all the admiring?
I know your summers are long,
but would u ever consider retiring?
or at the very least
could ya tell me if your hiring?
I'm asking nicely, I'm saying please
take me with you when you leave


you mean to tell me you want a job at the north pole?
(that's right)
were not taking applicants,
besides its far too cold
and to those dwarves..
(to those what?!)
you'd be like manute bol
(who is manute bol?)
santa you know that i adore ya
(why thanks)
but i want your job, and im comin for ya
(who me?)

now dasher, now basher
now penny, and ian
on devin, and lemon
and only on weekends
from the top of the verse
to the top admiral
now bash away, bash away, bash away all
bash away all
bash away all
Track Name: Tom & Penny - Nobody Wants to Be Alone for Christmas
Lyrics by: Tom Principato, Chris Penny

Making a snowman of ice cream and candy
Dressed up in a boa and shades
This holiday feeling was making itchy and bitchy
This cold weather drives me insane
As far as we know, the reason it snows
is so i can keep you warm all day
This must be why people say.
Nobody wants to be alone for Christmas.
The only gift I need is you right by my side
With you in my life it feels like Christmas time.
It's morning already it's time to get ready
I look and you're still fast asleep.
I'll brew us some coffee to shake off that party
I'm sorry I threw up on your fancy sheets.
As far as we know, the reason it snows
is so i can keep you warm all day
This must be why people say.
Nobody wants to be alone for Christmas.
The only gift I need is you right by my side
With you in my life it feels like Christmas time.
The only gift I need is to have you with me.
The only gift I need is you.
Track Name: Mr. Devin Sellers - In Love At Christmastime
Lyrics by: Devin Sellers

There's a feeling going 'round
It's sweeping all across the town
People screaming from their doors
That they got what they've waited for
They can't wait to let it out
What their joy is all about

CHORUS:
There's nothing like good family
And nothing like a Christmas tree
And nothing like all the food
And nothing like being in love with you
But most of all there's nothing like
Being happy at Christmastime

This feeling that's built up all year's
Behind all these shouts of cheer
The dancing and the revelry
Is catching up to you and me
We've got the wine, we've got the nerve
We sing the songs, we know all of the words

CHORUS

Go to sleep
And try hard not to peek
'Cause he won't come if
He knows that you're awake
Through the door
With what you've waited for
A shiny pair of
Brand new roller skates!

CHORUS
Track Name: Against The Bay - (L)Ass(t) Christmas
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

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
If it's been a year
It doesn't surprise me
"Merry 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
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

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

Ooooo
Oh oh baby

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
Oh oh
Now I've found a real love you'll never fool me again

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

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

SPECIALLLLLL

A face on a lover with a fire in his heart ( Gave you my heart)
A man under cover but you tore me apart
Next year I'll give it to someone
I'll give it to someone special.
Special
Someone someone
I'll give it to someone,I'll give it to someone special
Who'll give something in return
I'll give it to someone
Hold my heart and watch it burn
I'll give me to someone,I'll give it to someone special
I've got you here to stay
I can love you for a day
I thought you were someone special
Gave you my heart
I'll give it to someone,I'll give it to someone
Last christmas i gave you my heart
You gave it away
I'll give it to someone,I'll give it to someone
Track Name: Call Me Lemon - Baby, Please Come Home
Lyrics by: Jeff Barry, Ellie Greenwich, Phil Spector

The snow's coming down
I'm watching it fall
Watching the people around
Baby please come home

The church bells in town
They're ringing a song
What a happy sound
Baby please come home

They're singing deck the halls
But it's not like Christmas at all
I remember when you were here
All the fun we had last year

Pretty lights on the tree
I'm watching them shine
You should be here with me
Baby please come home
Baby please come home

They're singing deck the halls
But it's not like christmas at all
I remember when you were here
All the fun we had last year

If there was a way
I'd hold back these tears
But it's Christmas day
Baby please come home
Baby please come home
(Whoa oh, oh oh Christmas)
(A very merry Christmas)
(A nice white Christmas)
Baby please come home
