LITTLE CHRISTMAS TREE

Little Christmas Tree

Michael Jackson – The Jackson 5 – from the Album: 2009 Ultimate Christmas Collection (Jackson 5)

Written by Clinton/Wayne

YouTube link – “Little Christmas Tree”

 

I watch the snowflakes fall
against my window pane
and wonder if you
are watching snowflakes too
I take a walk downtown
to where you used to meet me
There’s joy everywhere
but all that’s waiting there is

[Chorus]
Just a little Christmas tree
Looking sorta sad and lonely just like me
No one seems to care
They just went away and left it standing there
All alone on Christmas Eve

I hear the Christmas bells
(Bum Bum Bum)
The happy people singing
The songs of good cheer that only brings me tears
I sadly close my eyes
and say a little prayer
you’ll be waiting there for me
I look but all I see is

[Chorus]
Just a little Christmas tree
Looking sorta sad and lonely just like me
No one seems to care
They just went away and left it standing there
All alone on Christmas Eve

This is the season of love
(This is the season of love)
But I’m as sad as I can be
(sad as can be)
Why did you have to leave me
(Why did you have to leave me)
(Why did you have to leave me)

[Chorus]

Just a little Christmas tree
Looking sorta sad and lonely just like me
No one seems to care
They just went away and left it standing there
All alone on Christmas Eve

I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus

Written by Connors

YouTube link – “I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus”

 (kiss sound)

Wow! Mommy’s kissing Santa Claus!
I saw Mommy kissing Santa Claus
Underneath the mistletoe last night
She didn’t see me creep
Down the stairs to have a peep
She thought that I was tucked up
In my bedroom, fast asleep

Then I saw Mommy tickle Santa (tickle, tickle, Santa Claus) Claus
Underneath his beard so snowy white
Oh, what a laugh it would have been
If Daddy had only seen
Mommy kissing Santa Claus last night

He saw Mommy kissing Santa Claus
I did! I really did see Mommy kissing Santa Claus
And I’m gonna tell my Dad
(bell sound)

Then I saw Mommy tickle Santa (tickle, tickle Santa Claus) Claus
Underneath his beard so snowy white
Oh, what a laugh it would have been
If Daddy had only seen
Mommy kissing Santa Claus last night

Oh, what a laugh it would have been
If Daddy had only seen
Mommy kissing Santa Claus last night

I did! I did! I really did see Mommy kissing Santa Claus
You gotta believe me! You just gotta believe me!
Come on, fellas, believe me! You just gotta believe me! (I told you, I told you)

Shut up Michael no, you didn’t oh, OK now I believe you

Someday at Christmas

Lead vocals by Michael Jackson and Jermaine Jackson

Written by Miller/Wells

YouTube link – “Someday at Christmas”
Someday at Christmas men won’t be boys
Playing with bombs like kids play with toys
One Warm December our hearts will see
A world where men are free

Someday at Christmas there’ll be no wars
When we have learned what Christmas is for
When we have found what life’s really worth
There’ll be peace on earth

Someday all our dreams will come to be
Someday in a world where men are free
Maybe not in time for you and me
But someday at Christmas time

Someday at Christmas we’ll see a land
(Someday at Christmas)
With no hungry children, no empty hand
(Someday at Christmas)
One happy morning people will share
A world where people care, oh

Someday at Christmas there’ll be no tears
(Someday at Christmas)
Where all men are equal and no men have fears
(Someday at Christmas)
One shining moment, one prayer away
From our world today

Someday all our dreams will come to be
Someday in a world where men are free
Maybe not in time for you and me
But Someday at Christmas time

Someday at Christmas men would not have failed
Hate will be gone and love will prevail
Someday in a world that we can start
With hope in every heart, oh

Someday at Christmas  hmm, hmm. hmm

But Someday at Christmas time
Someday at Christmas Time

GIVE LOVE ON CHRISTMAS DAY

Give Love on Christmas Day

Michael Jackson – The Jackson 5 – from the Album: Jackson 5 Christmas Album (1970)

Written by Gordy/Mizell/Perren/Richards

YouTube link – “Give Love On Christmas Day”
People making lists, buying special gifts
Taking time to be kind to one and all
It’s that time of year when good friends are near
And you wish you could give more than just presents from a store

Why don’t you give love on Christmas Day
Oh, Even the man who has everything
Would be so happy if you would bring
him love on Christmas Day,
No greater gift is there than love

People you don’t know smile and nod hello
Everywhere there’s an air of Christmas joy
It’s that once of year when the world’s sincere
And you’d like to find a way to show the things that words can’t say

Why don’t you give love on Christmas Day
Oh, The man on the street and the couple upstairs
All need to know there’s someone who cares
Give love on Christmas Day
No greater gift is there than love

What the world needs is love
Yes, the world needs more love

Why don’t you give love on Christmas Day
Oh, Every little child on Santa’s knee
Has room for your love underneath his tree
Give love on Christmas Day
No greater gift is there than love

What the world needs is love
Yes, the world needs more love

Give love, oh give love on Christmas Day

Lead vocals: Jermaine Jackson

Written by Marks

YouTube link – “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer”

 

You know Dasher and Dancer, Prancer and Vixen
Comet and Cupid, Donner and Blitzen
But do you recall
The most famous reindeer of all?

Hey Rudolph
Wo-hoah, Rudolph

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer
Had a very shiny nose
And if you ever saw it
You would even say it glowed
All of the other reindeer
Used to laugh and call him names
They never let poor Rudolph
Join in any reindeer games

(chorus)
Oh, then one foggy Christmas Eve
Santa came to say (hey Rudolph)
Rudolph, with your nose so bright,
Won’t you guide my sleigh tonight
Then how the reindeer loved him,
As they shouted out with glee:
Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer
You’ll go down in history
You’ll go down in history
Hey Rudolph

Oh, then one foggy Christmas Eve
Santa came to say (hey Rudolph)
Rudolph, with your nose so bright,
Won’t you guide my sleigh tonight
Then how the reindeer loved him,
As they shouted out with glee:
Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer
You’ll go down in history
You’ll go down in history
Hey Rudolph

Hey Rudolph
Wo-hoah, Rudolph
Red-Nosed Reindeer

FROSTY THE SNOWMAN

Frosty the snowman

Michael Jackson – The Jackson 5 – from the Album: Jackson 5 Christmas Album (1970)

Written by Nelson/Rollins
YouTube link – “Frosty the Snowman”

 

Oh, Frosty, yeah
Frosty the snowman was a jolly happy soul
With a corncob pipe and a button nose
and two eyes made out of coal
Frosty the snowman is a fairy tale they say
He was made of snow but the kids all
know how he came to life one day
There must have been some magic here
old silk hat they found
For when they placed it on his head
he began to dance around
Oh
Frosty the snowman
was alive as he could be
And the kids all say he could laugh
and play just the same as you and me

Frosty, oh yeah, the snowman, yeah, yeah

He led them down the streets of town
right to the traffic cop
And he only paused a moment when
he heard him holler “Stop!”
Frosty the snowman
had to hurry on his way
But he waved goodbye saying
“Don’t you cry
I’ll be back again some day”

Thumpetty thump thump
thumpety thump thump
Look at him go

Frosty, the snowman
Thumpetty thump thump
thumpety thump thump
Frosty, the snowman (repeat)

 

UP ON THE HOUSETOP

Up On the Housetop

Michael Jackson – The Jackson 5 – from the Album: Jackson 5 Christmas Album (1970)

Written by Hanby

YouTube link – “Up On the Housetop” 
Here comes Santa Claus
Here comes Santa Claus
Here he comes, here he comes

Here comes Santa Claus
Here comes Santa Claus
Here he comes, here he comes

Up on the housetop, reindeer pause
Out jumps good old Santa Claus
Down through the chimney with lots of toys
All for everyone’s Christmas joys

Tito had just one desire
That he gets a new guitar
But he wants a guarantee
That it won’t play out of key

Ho, ho, ho! Who wouldn’t go?
Ho, ho, ho! Who wouldn’t go?
Up on the housetop, click, click, click,
Down through the chimney with old St. Nick

(I said) Ho, ho, ho! Who wouldn’t go?
Ho, ho, ho! Who wouldn’t go?
Up on the housetop, click, click, click,
Down through the chimney with old St. Nick

Here comes Santa Claus
Here comes Santa Claus
Here he comes, here he comes

Here comes Santa Claus
Here comes Santa Claus
Here he comes, here he comes

Jackie’s almost six feet tall
But no hot shot at basketball
Bring him a basket three feet tall
Maybe he’ll play like a pro

Marlon wears his shoes so thin
He’s gone through his socks again
He’s always dancing as you know
(So bring me some shoes with lots of soles)

Ho, ho, ho! Who wouldn’t go?
Ho, ho, ho! Who wouldn’t go?
Up on the housetop, click, click, click,
Down through the chimney with old St. Nick

(I said) Ho, ho, ho! Who wouldn’t go?
Ho, ho, ho! Who wouldn’t go?
Up on the housetop, click, click, click,
Down through the chimney with old St. Nick

Patter patter pitter patter
Pitter patter patter
Pitter patter pitter patter
Pitter patter patter

Oh Dasher, Dancer, Prancer and Vixen
Come on Comet, Cupid, Donner and Blixen
To the top of the porch, to the top of the wall
Now dash away, dash away, dash away all!

Did you read Santa Claus my list?
All the girls you’re waiting to kiss?
Mike, that list was only a joke
Too late, Jermaine, he’s bringing you mistletoe

Bet you just want toys and stuff
Yeah, but that’s not even half enough
What I want means more than fun
What’s that? – Love and peace for everyone

Up on the house top reindeer stand
Waiting for that dear old man
Up to the chimney with gifts to spare
And lots of Christmas joy to share

Ho, ho, ho! Who wouldn’t go?
Ho, ho, ho! Who wouldn’t go?
Up on the housetop, click, click, click,
Up out through the chimney with old St. Nick

Ho, ho, ho! Who wouldn’t go?
Ho, ho, ho! Who wouldn’t go?
Up on the housetop, click, click, click,
Up through the chimney with old St. Nick

Ho, ho, ho! Who wouldn’t go?
Ho, ho, ho! Who wouldn’t go?
Up on the housetop, click, click, click,
Up through the chimney with old St. Nick

Ho, ho, ho! Who wouldn’t go?
Ho, ho, ho! Who wouldn’t go?
Up on the housetop, click, click, click,
Up through the chimney with old St. Nick

THE CHRISTMAS SONG

The Christmas Song

The Jackson 5 – from Album: Jackson 5 Christmas Album (1970)

Lead vocal: Jermaine Jackson

Written by Torme/Wells
YouTube link – The Christmas Song”

 

Merry Christmas
Merry Christmas
Merry Christmas to you
Chestnuts roasting on an open fire
Jack Frost nipping at your nose
Yuletide carols being sung by a choir
And folks dressed up like Eskimos

Everybody knows a turkey and some mistletoe
Help to make the season bright
Tiny tots with their eyes all aglow
Will find it hard to sleep tonight

They know that Santa’s on his way
He’s bringing lots of toys and goodies on his sleigh
And every mother’s child is on the spy
To see if reindeer really know how to fly

And so, I’m offering this simple phrase
To kids from 1 to 92
Though it has been said many times, many ways

Merry Christmas (Merry Christmas)
Merry Christmas (Merry Christmas)
Merry Christmas to you (repeat)

Jingle Bell, Jingle Bell, Jingle all the way (repeat)
