Track Name: White Out
Fa la la la la
Fa la la la la

White out
I’ve written this letter too much
White out
Let me start over
Its white out
Maybe the postman won’t come
White out
I could use a snowblower

But I heard there’s no school from the radio
And I know I wanna write you soon but I’ve got no way with words
The sun is ultraviolet bright reflecting shining white
My eraser is all worn down, I need some white out

Fa la la la la
Fa la la la la

White out
I’m feeling a bit out of touch
White out
Another year older
Its a white out
Staring down at a blank page
White out
Your shoulder is colder

But I heard there’s no work from the tv set
And I know I’m gonna write you soon, I’m pretty much all set
The sun is shining in my eyes and I wanna see you tonight
Forget every shade of gray, its a white out

How’s your resolution gonna find out a solution
All the coughing and pollution and the problems that are plaguing you
At the bottom of a mug walking up and down the stairs
Sweep ‘em underneath the rug cuz I’m wassailing away these blues

Fa la la la la
Fa la la la la
(Mother Mary come to me)
(Very merry company)
Track Name: Neonlicht
(German)
Neonlicht
Schimmendes neonlicht
Und wenn die nacht anbricht
Ist diese stadt aus licht

(English translation)
Neon lights
Shimmering neon lights
And at the fall of night
This city's made of light
Track Name: C-H-R-I-S-T-M-A-S
C-H-R-I-S-T-M-A-S
C-H-R-I-S-T-M-A-S
C-H-R-I-S-T-M-A-S
C-H-R-I-S-T-M-A-S

How’s Little Saint Nick coming down your chimney?
50 cups of coffee and it finally came to me
In with the guests, hiding in your laundry
Hanging off the back on the back of your Christmas tree

C-H-R-I-S-T-M-A-S
C-H-R-I-S-T-M-A-S
C-H-R-I-S-T-M-A-S
C-H-R-I-S-T-M-A-S

I was driving through the woods on a foggy Christmas Eve
I saw 8 tiny deer and you know what they said it to me?
“Can we catch a ride please open sesame”
They pulled me ‘round the world and rest is history
Track Name: Christmas Screensaver
The weather inside is delightful
The Christmas lights are on a timer
And we’ll huddle, me and you tonight
Around the Christmas screensaver

The static on the TV is snowing
The blinking lights on the cable box are glowing
You’re with me tonight in the laptop’s light
In front of the Christmas screensaver

Our favorite Blu-rays are in the player
The candy canes are mango flavored
And you’ll kiss me goodnight into the webcam’s eye
In front of the Christmas wallpaper

I didn’t hear from you
But I want to see you soon
I know you’re at home and you left your little phone
The one with the Christmas screensaver
Track Name: Little Hands
Little hands clapping
Children are laughing
Little hands clapping all over the world

Piper is piping
Drummers are drumming
Little hands clapping all over the world

Come let us meet them
Ah, yes, we will greet them

Little hands clapping
Children are caring
Piper is piping all over the world

Out in the street
The sick that you meet
How many friends do you call your own?

Come let us meet them
Ah, yes, we will greet them

Little hands clapping
Children are happy
Little hands loving all 'round the world

Little hands clasping
Truth they are grasping
A world with no pain for one and all

Come let us meet them
Ah, yes, we will greet them
Track Name: Christmas Wrapping
"Bah, humbug!" No, that's too strong
'Cause it is my favorite holiday
But all this year's been a busy blur
Don't think I have the energy

To add to my already mad rush
Just 'cause it's 'tis the season.
The perfect gift for me would be
Completions and connections left from

Last year, ski shop,
Encounter, most interesting.
Had his number but never the time
Most of '81 passed along those lines.

So deck those halls, trim those trees
Raise up cups of Christmas cheer,
I just need to catch my breath,
Christmas by myself this year.

Calendar picture, frozen landscape,
Chilled this room for twenty-four days,
Evergreens, sparkling snow
Get this winter over with!

Flashback to springtime, saw him again,
Would've been good to go for lunch,
Couldn't agree when we were both free,
We tried, we said we'd keep in touch.

Didn't, of course, 'til summertime,
Out to the beach to his boat could I join him?
No, this time it was me,
Sunburn in the third degree.

Now the calendar's just one page
And, of course, I am excited
Tonight's the night, but I've set my mind
Not to do too much about it.

Merry Christmas! Merry Christmas!
But I think I'll miss this one this year.

Hardly dashing through the snow
Cause I bundled up too tight
Last minute have-to-do's
A few cards a few calls
'Cause it's r-s-v-p
No thanks, no party lights
It's Christmas Eve, gonna relax
Turned down all of my invites.
Last fall I had a night to myself,
Same guy called, Halloween party,
Waited all night for him to show,
This time his car wouldn't go,

Forget it, it's cold, it's getting late,
Trudge on home to celebrate
In a quiet way, unwind
Doing Christmas right this time.

A&P has provided me
With the world's smallest turkey
Already in the oven, nice and hot
Oh damn! Guess what I forgot?

So on with the boots, back out in the snow
To the only all-night grocery,
When what to my wondering eyes should appear
In the line is that guy I've been chasing all year!

"I'm spending this one alone," he said.
"Need a break; this year's been crazy."
I said, "Me too, but why are you?
You mean you forgot cranberries too?"

Then suddenly we laughed and laughed
Caught on to what was happening
That Christmas magic's brought this tale
To a very happy ending! "

Merry Christmas! Merry Christmas!
Couldn't miss this one this year!
Track Name: Little Drummer Boy
Come they told me, pa rum pum pum pum
A new born King to see, pa rum pum pum pum
Our finest gifts we bring, pa rum pum pum pum
To lay before the King, pa rum pum pum pum,
rum pum pum pum, rum pum pum pum
Track Name: Marshmallow World
It's a marshmallow world that we live in
Where the snow never melts off the ground
Take the time to lie, under whipped cream skies
I've waited for you all year round

Those are marshmallow clouds being friendly
In the arms of the evergreen trees
And the sun is red, like a pumpkin's head
It's shining so your nose won't sneeze

The world is a snowball, see how it grows
That's how it goes, whenever it snows
The world is a snowball, just for a song
Get out and roll it along

It's a yum-yummy world made of Sweet Tarts
Take a walk with a peppermint swirl
It's a sugar taste, what if spring is late?
Believe me it's a marshmallow world
Track Name: 7 O'Clock News / Silent Night
Silent night, holy night
All is calm, all is bright
Round yon Virgin, Mother and Child
Holy infant so tender and mild
Sleep in heavenly peace
Sleep in heavenly peace

Silent night, holy night
Shepherds quake at the sight
Glories stream from heaven afar
Heavenly hosts sing Alleluia
Christ the Savior is born
Christ the Savior is born
Track Name: Christmas Celebration
Christmas celebration
All around the nation
Won't you stay with me tonight
Cuz I'm running out of fight
And the pagentry is such a bore

Carolers are singing
Registers ka-chinging
And the presents are in place
But I'd rather eat some paste
Cuz the egg nog always makes me sick

You know how the story goes
You've seen it all before
That man is so obese
That he can't get out the door

Christmas to perfection
I'm begging for some action
And the ringing in my ears
Is the sound of christmas cheer
Cuz they knocked me screaming overboard

You know how the story goes
You've seen it all before
That man is so obese
That he can't get out the door

Christmas celebration
All around the nation
Won't you stay with me tonight
Cuz I'm running out of fight
And the pagentry is such a bore
The pagentry is such a bore
The pagentry is such a bore
Track Name: Wishlist
I wish I was a neutron bomb, for once I could go off
I wish I was a sacrifice but somehow still lived on
I wish I was a sentimental ornament you hung on
The Christmas tree, I wish I was the star that went on top
I wish I was the evidence, I wish I was the grounds
For 50 million hands upraised and open toward the sky

I wish I was a sailor with someone who waited for me
I wish I was as fortunate, as fortunate as me
I wish I was a messenger and all the news was good
I wish I was the full moon shining off a Camaro's hood

I wish I was an alien at home behind the sun
I wish I was the souvenir you kept your house key on
I wish I was the pedal brake that you depended on
I wish I was the verb 'to trust' and never let you down

I wish I was a radio song, the one that you turned up
Track Name: Christmas Heatwave
I’ve waited all year for the 25th
I never expected weather like this
Others may dream of White Christmas
But me, I just want to wear some pants

How is this Christmas eve?
With all this Christmas heat?
I’ve been wearing shorts since March 10th
When will this heatwave end?

This year we almost ran out of water
I’ve never been so thirsty, it’s never been hotter
I’ve keep on dreaming of Blue Christmas
Watch Water World while doing a rain dance

How is this Christmas eve?
With all this Christmas heat?
I’ve been wearing shorts since March 10th
When will this heatwave end?

If I could walk on water it would mean this drought would end
But let’s not get ahead of it, my friends
It’s already snowing in the tropical islands
From every butterfly that flapped it’s wings again

How is this Christmas eve?
With all this Christmas heat?
I’ve been wearing shorts since March 10th
When will this heatwave end?
Track Name: Forest of Christmas Trees
Upon a foggy Christmas eve
A forest of Christmas trees
Although I miss these things
The loved ones meant everything

All the stares of the brokenhearted
And the love of the dearly departed
Pinholes in the starry sky
Just a moment to thank that I’m alive

The fire burns the last calendar page
Someday I’ll remember just the good parts of these days
Upon the log in the brick of the hearth
Block the black and take the good in my heart

All the stairs that led to today
And every cookie in the milky way
A single star in the darkest evenings
To guide my way when I couldn’t see anything

It made no sense like Frankincense
And all the love was heaven sent
There’s more than I could ever mention
Here in my heart
Track Name: This Will Be Our Year
The warmth of your love
Is like the warmth of the sun
And this will be our year
Took a long time to come

don't let go of my hand
Now darkness has gone
And this will be our year
Took a long time to come

And I won't forget
The way you held me up when I was down
And I won't forget the way you said,
"Darling I love you"
You gave me faith to go on
Now we're there and we've only just begun
This will be our year
Took a long time to come

The warmth of your smile
Smile for me, little one
And this will be our year
Took a long time to come
You don't have to worry
All your worried days are gone
This will be our year
Took a long time to come

And I won't forget
The way you held me up when I was down
And I won't forget the way you said,
"Darling I love you"
You gave me faith to go on
Now we're there and we've only just begun
And this will be our year
Took a long time to come

Yeah we only just begun
Yeah this will be our year
Took a long time to come
Track Name: Awaiting On You All
You don't need no love in
You don't need no bed pan
You don't need a horoscope or a microscope
The see the mess that you're in
If you open up your heart
You will know what I mean
We've been polluted so long
Now here's a way for you to get clean

By chanting the names of the Lord and you'll be free
The Lord is awaiting on you all to awaken and see
Chanting the names of the Lord and you'll be free
The Lord is awaiting on you all to awaken and see

You don't need no passport
And you don't need no visas
You don't need to designate or to emigrate
Before you can see Jesus
If you open up your heart
You'll see he's right there
Always was and will be
He'll relieve you of your cares

By chanting the names of the Lord and you'll be free
The Lord is awaiting on you all to awaken and see
Chanting the names of the Lord and you'll be free
The Lord is awaiting on you all to awaken and see

You don't need no church house
And you don't need no Temple
You don't need no rosary beads or them books to read
To see that you have fallen
If you open up your heart
You will know what I mean
We've been kept down so long
Someone's thinking that we're all green

And while the Pope owns fifty one percent of General Motors
And the stock exchange is the only thing he's qualified to quote us
The Lord is awaiting on you all to awaken and see
By chanting the names of the Lord and you'll be free
