Track Name: It's Christmastime Again
IT’S CHRISTMAS TIME AGAIN
It’s Christmastime again; it’s Christmastime again
Underneath the mistletoe, I can hear a Ho Ho Ho!
All the lights are shining just like the stars, I can hear the sound of a 1,000 guitars
Oh yeah, it’s Christmastime
It’s Christmastime again; it’s Christmastime again
That much I know, I see it everywhere I go
All the kids make lots of noise, playing with all their little toys
Oh yeah, it’s Christmastime
Santa goes here & then he goes there
He’s sliding down the chimney everywhere
From the great North Pole all the way to outer space
Here comes Santa with a smile on his face
It’s Christmastime again; it’s Christmastime again
That much is true, you know it too
There’s a feeling of joy in the air; You can feel it everywhere
Oh yeah, it’s Christmastime
Oh yeah, it’s Christmastime
Oh yeah, it’s Christmastime

Track Name: Johnny Pierre, Holiday Music, Christmas, Americana Rock, NY Long Island, - Christmas Cards
CHRISTMAS CARDS
Christmas cards, Christmas cards, way too many to write
It looks like I’m gonna be up all night
Christmas cards, Christmas cards, yuletide delight
I think I’ll have a drink or two; I’ll be merry and bright

There’s one for my friend Billy and Debbie Doobie too
One for Pistol Pete and the Ashley Street crew
Wishing you the very best, you know it’s true
I remember every Christmas and the things we used to do

Christmas cards, Christmas cards, way too many to write
Too many names, not enough time, I’ll be up all night
Christmas cards, Christmas cards, yuletide delight
I think I’ll have a drink or two; I’ll be merry and bright
La la la la, la la la la…oh no! There’s too many cards!

Christmas cards, Christmas cards, way too many to write
It looks like I’m gonna be up all night
Christmas cards, Christmas cards, yuletide delight
I think I’ll have a drink or two; I’ll be merry and bright

There’s one for my friend Ray and little Amylou
There’s one for my friend Garry and Charlie too
Each one’s a special memory just for me and you
I remember every Christmas and the things we used to do

Christmas cards, Christmas cards, way too many to write
Too many names, not enough time, I’ll be up all night
Christmas cards, Christmas cards, yuletide delight
I think I’ll have a drink or two; I’ll be merry and bright
I think I’ll have a drink or two; I’ll be merry and bright
I think I’ll have a drink or two; I’ll be merry and bright

Track Name: I Wanna Be Your Santa Claus
I WANNA BE YOUR SANTA CLAUS
I was hanging at my baby’s house on Christmas Eve
& just as I was getting ready to leave
I was looking at that Santa suit there on the bed
And then I winked at my baby and this I said
I wanna be your Santa Claus; I wanna be your Santa Claus,
I wanna be your Santa Claus; hey little girl, I got something in my bag for you
We were getting real jolly with the lights down low
Every now & then I’d shout “Ho Ho Ho!”
I was feeling the spirit of the holidays
When I looked at my baby and I had to say
I wanna be your Santa Claus; I wanna be your Santa Claus,
I wanna be your Santa Claus; hey little girl, I got something in my bag for you
There came a knock on the door with a rooty-toot- toot
It was little fat man who looked so cute
He looked like a vision all dressed in red
Then he winked at my baby and this he said
I wanna be your Santa Claus; I wanna be your Santa Claus,
I wanna be your Santa Claus; hey little girl, I got something in my bag for you
Hey little girl, I got something in my bag for you
Hey little girl I got something in my bag for you
I wanna be your Santa Claus, I wanna be your Santa Claus

Track Name: Hey Santa Claus
Hey Santa Claus
Hey Santa Claus, sliding down the chimney; Hey Santa Claus, coming to town
Hey Santa Claus, sliding down the chimney; Hey Santa Claus, coming to town
I can hear him up there on the rooftop, bringing toys to the boys & girls
He’s up there flying in the sky now
Bringing Christmas to the whole wide world
Hey Santa Claus, sliding down the chimney; Hey Santa Claus, coming to town
Hey Santa Claus, sliding down the chimney; Hey Santa Claus, coming to town
I can hear him calling to his reindeer, “come on boys we got to spread some joy!”
He’s just like a ghost in the moonlight, bringing Christmas to the whole wide world
Hey Santa Claus, sliding down the chimney; Hey Santa Claus, coming to town
Hey Santa Claus, sliding down the chimney; Hey Santa Claus, coming to town
I can see hear him up there in the sky now, bringing toys to the boys & girls
You might hear him moving in the moonlight
Bringing Christmas to the whole wide world
Hey Santa Claus, sliding down the chimney; Hey Santa Claus, coming to town
Hey Santa Claus, sliding down the chimney; Hey Santa Claus, coming to town
Hey Santa Claus, Hey Santa Claus, Hey Santa Claus, Hey Santa Claus

Track Name: Santa's Housetop Blues
SANTA’S HOUSETOP BLUES
Up on the housetop reindeer pause,
Here comes sweet ol’ Santa Claus
Down through the chimney with lots of toys;
Bringing home the bacon for the girls & boys
You can hear the sound of his squeaky shoes
Santa’s got a case of those housetop blues
Ho, ho, ho! Let the cold winds blow!
Ho, ho, ho! Let the good times roll!
Up on the housetop tick tick tick!
Down through the chimney with ol’ Saint Nick
All the reindeers are singing, “Go man go!”
Santa’s getting crazy with the mistletoe
Milk and cookies by the easy chair
You can hear the squeaky shoes everywhere
Up on the housetop lickety split
Somebody’s called the cops on ol’ Saint Nick
Oh, it’s getting late…
Santa jumps into his big red sleigh
It’s time to make his getaway
All the reindeers are screaming, “Go man go!”
Santa knows it’s time to hit the road
Up on the housetop, he’s got nothing to lose
A real bad case of those housetop blues
Ho, ho, ho! Let the cold winds blow!
Ho, ho, ho! Let the good times roll!
Up on the housetop, all night long
Santa’s been here and now he’s gone
Gone like the wind…gone!
That guy’s outta here!

Track Name: North Pole Hop
NORTH POLE HOP
Santa Claus starts swinging every year on Christmas Day
His whole gang is jumping when he pulls up in his sleigh
Everybody in the house is all wound up
All the yule cats are ready to do the North Pole Hop
CHORUS: I say, Ho Ho Ho (ho ho ho) Come on let’s go (hey, let’s go)
Do you wanna rock to the North Pole Hop?
I say, Ho Ho Ho (ho ho ho) Come on let’s go (hey, let’s go)
Do you wanna rock to the North Pole Hop?
All the elves are moving, spinning like a top
Rocking & rolling, bopping & strolling, doing the North Pole Hop
Rudolph’s getting toasted, man he’s hot to trot
All the yuletide cats know where it’s at, doing the North Pole Hop
CHORUS
Santa he got busy on that Christmas day
His whole gang was jumping when that music started to play
Everybody in the house was all wound up
All the yule cats were swinging, doing the North Pole Hop
CHORUS
Hop Hop North Pole Hop, Hop Hop North Pole Hop, Hop Hop North Pole Hop
Hop Hop North Pole Hop, Hop Hop North Pole Hop, Hop Hop North Pole Hop
Hop Hop North Pole Hop, Hop Hop North Pole Hop, Hop Hop North Pole Hop

Track Name: Have A Happy New Year
DOIN THAT HOLIDAY THING
Another year is almost gone
Time these days don’t last that long
Memories good as gold, hear those sleigh bells ring
Have a happy New Year, doin that holiday thing
Here comes another “Ho Ho Ho!”
I can see those angels in the snow
All lit up like a Christmas tree, hear those sleigh bells ring
Have a happy New Year, doin that holiday thing
We’ll sing Auld Lang Syne once again
As another crazy year comes to an end
Here comes another “Ho Ho Ho!”
Who knows where the time goes
All lit up like a Christmas tree, hear those sleigh bells ring
Have a happy New Year, doin that holiday thing
Yes you’re all lit up like a Christmas tree, hear those sleigh bells ring
Have a happy New Year, doin that holiday thing
Doin that holiday thing, ring-a-ding-ding-ding
Doin that holiday thing, ring-a-ding-ding-ding
Doin that holiday thing, ring-a-ding-ding-ding
Doin that holiday thing, ring-a-ding-ding-ding
Happy New Year!

Track Name: New Year's Party
New Year Party
Well, I went to the New Year’s party, the drinks went to my head
We argued about politics and then I fell asleep on the bed
I went to the New Year’s party, I stayed there much too long
When I woke up in the morning another year was gone
Happy New Year to the Human Race
Never gonna stop, come on let’s rock, let’s rock this place
Happy New Year to the Human Race
Never gonna stop, come on let’s rock, let’s rock this place
I went to the New Year’s party, shed some crocodile tears
I made my resolution and the past just disappeared
We drank up all the egg nog and sang a New Year’s song
& when we woke up in the morning, another year was gone
Happy New Year to the Human Race
Never gonna stop, come on let’s rock, let’s rock this place
Happy New Year to the Human Race
Never gonna stop, come on let’s rock, let’s rock this place
Well, I went to a New Year’s party and everything felt strange
A friend of mine told me,
“the more things change they remain the same”
I went to the New Year’s party, I stayed there much too long
When I woke up in the morning another year was gone
Happy New Year to the Human Race
Never gonna stop, come on let’s rock, let’s rock this place
Happy New Year to the Human Race,
do you wanna rock? Come on let’s rock!
Happy all the time killing me with that auld Lang sine
Happy all the time killing me with that auld Lang sine
Happy all the time killing me with that auld Lang sine
Happy all the time killing me with that auld Lang sine
