Track Name: Put The Lights On The Tree
put the lights on the tree
(put them on the tree, put them on the tree)
put the ribbon on the wreath
(put it on the wreath, put it on the wreath)
call your grandma on the phone
(call her on the phone, call her on the phone)
if she's living all alone
(if she's all alone, if she's all alone)

tell her jesus christ is here
(tell her he is here, tell her he is here)
tell her she has none to fear
(there is none to fear, there is none to fear)
and if she's crying on the phone
(crying on the phone, crying on the phone)
tell her you are coming home
(you are coming home, you are coming home)
Track Name: Got Something For You
hey baby
i got something for you
and i wanna tell you
but you'll have to wait

you think you're smart
looking for your gifts in the dark
you think that i can't see
you looking under the christmas tree
Track Name: Feliz Navidad
feliz navidad
prospero año y felicidad

i wanna wish you a merry christmas
from the bottom of my heart
Track Name: Shopping
well you know that it's going to be alright
i think it's gonna be alright
everything will always be alright
when we go shopping

it's always lalalalalalalalalalalalalalalala
shopping spree begin
it's always lalalalalalalalalalalalalalalala
everybody wins

so shut up
and never stop
let's shop
until we drop

shopping never end
shopping with our friends
shopping once again

it's never enough
until you got all the stuff
and when the going gets rough
just shop with somebody tough
Track Name: A Virgin, You Say?
how could mary even have a baby
if she hadn't had any love

how could a baby even come out of her
if she hadn't been with anyone

how do you think joseph must've felt
when he didn't even get a chance

to show mary how much he loved her
with the power of love and romance
Track Name: That Was The Worst Christmas Ever
going outside
shoveling snow in the driveway, driveway
taking our shoes
riding a sled down the hillside, hillside

can you say what you want
can you say what you want to be
can you be what you want
can you be what you want

our father yells
throwing the gifts in the woodstove, woodstove
my sister runs away
taking her books to the schoolyard, schoolyard

in time the snow will rise
in time the snow will rise
in time the lord will rise
in time the lord will rise

silent night, holy night
silent night, nothing feels right
Track Name: Silver Bells
silver bells
silver bells
it's christmas time in the city
ring-a-ling
hear them ring
soon it will be christmas day

city sidewalks, busy sidewalks
dressed in holiday style
in the air there's a feeling of christmas
children laughing, people passing
meeting smile after smile
and on every street corner you'll hear
Track Name: I Can Still Sing About The Beach
baby, it's cold outside
but only in spirit
i still wear short sleeves
you wanna go home
but only near it
we wanna go look at the leaves

the lights are bright
our hands held tight
but there's no snow
so what do you know
it still looks like the summer

for all i can say
they're back at the bay
drinking away
all of the day
it's not christmas to them

as long as the snow don't fall
and the dove don't call
and the sun is tall
i can still sing about the beach

you better watch out
'cause i'm coming to town
i'm not saint nick
but i get around
i can tell if you're not being nice

this mistletoe
ain't hanging low
for every seed you can sow
every deer is a doe
and you're looking fine for me

as long as those bells
don't ring too well
and there's still swells
i can still sing about the beach

it's christmas on the shore
and i can still sing about the beach
