  • January always brought me down
    All the magic of December’s like a circus leaving town
    All I wanna do is follow it around
    Cause everybody wishes it was Christmas all year ‘round.

    To wake up every morning with a present in my bed
    That’s how I been feeling since the moment we first met.

    I don’t need the snow to fall
    I don’t need the lights to shine
    I don’t need a mistletoe cause I’ll still kiss you all the time.
    We don’t have to take a sleigh ride
    For our hearts to race inside
    I still get just as excited when we go to sleep at night
    Every day is Christmas as long as everyday you are mine.

    Spring is coming but the air is chill
    It reminds me of the winter fires that we would always build
    Hiding from the cold it’s always warmer in your arms
    Whenever you are kissing me it’s Christmas in my heart.

    I don’t need the snow to fall
    I don’t need the lights to shine
    I don’t need a mistletoe cause I’ll still kiss you all the time.
    We don’t have to take a sleigh ride
    For our hearts to race inside
    I still get just as excited when we go to sleep at night
    Every day is Christmas as long as everyday you are mine.

    I’ll be dreaming…
    I believe it…

    Now January doesn’t bring me down
    Cause the magic of December’s always here when you’re around.

    No we don’t need the snow to fall
    We don’t need the lights to shine
    We don’t need a mistletoe cause we’ll be kissing all the time
    We don’t have to take a sleigh ride
    For our hearts to race inside
    We still get just as excited when we go to sleep at night
    Every day is Christmas as long as every day you are mine.

    Every day is Christmas
    Every day is Christmas
    Every day you are mine
    Every day is Christmas
    Every day is Christmas
    You are mine
    Every day, every day
    You are mine
    You are mine
    You are mine
    You are mine

  • I’m dreaming of a white Christmas
    Just like the ones I used to know.
    Where the treetops glisten
    And children listen
    To hear sleigh bells in the snow.
    I’m dreaming of a white Christmas
    With every Christmas card I write.
    May your days be merry and bright
    And may all your Christmases be white.

    I’m dreaming of a white Christmas
    Just like the ones I used to know.
    Where the treetops glisten
    And the children listen
    To hear those sleigh bells in the snow
    I’m dreaming of a white Christmas
    With every Christmas card I write
    May your days be merry and bright
    And may all your Christmases
    May all your Christmases
    May all your Christmases be white
    And may all your Christmases be white
    May they be white
    Christmases be white.

  • Merry Christmas, baby
    Sure do treat me nice.
    Merry Christmas, baby
    You sure do treat me nice
    Bought me diamond ring for Christmas
    I feel like I’m in paradise.

    I feel mighty fine, y’all
    I’ve got music on my radio
    Feel mighty fine, girl
    I’ve got music on my radio
    I feel like I’m gonna kiss you
    Standing beneath that mistletoe.

    Santa came down the chimney
    Half past three, y’all
    Left all them good ol’ presents
    For my baby and for me

    Merry Christmas baby
    Sure to do treat me nice
    You bought all those good ol’ presents
    I love you baby rest of my life

    Merry Christmas, girl
    Merry, merry, merry Christmas, baby
    Sure to treat me nice
    Merry Christmas, baby
    I said you sure do treat me nice
    You bought me all those lovely things, yeah
    I feel like I’m in paradise

    I wish you a Merry Christmas baby
    Happy New Year
    A Merry Christmas, honey
    Everything here is beautiful
    I love you, baby
    For everything that you give me
    I love you, honey…

  • The moon is right
    The spirit's up
    We're here tonight
    And that's enough
    Simply having a wonderful Christmastime

    The party's on
    The feeling's here
    That only comes
    This time of year
    Simply having a wonderful Christmastime
    Simply having a wonderful Christmastime

    The choir of children sing their song

    The word is out
    About the town
    To lift a glass
    Ah, and don't look down

    Simply having a wonderful Christmastime
    Simply having a wonderful Christmastime

    The party is on
    The feeling is here
    That only comes this time of year
    We’re here tonight and that’s enough
    Simply having a wonderful Christmastime
    Simply having a wonderful Christmastime.

    The party's on
    The spirit's up
    We're here tonight
    And that's enough

    Simply having a wonderful Christmastime
    Simply having a wonderful Christmastime

    The choir of children sing their song
    They practiced all year long

    The moon is right
    The spirit's up
    We're here tonight
    Oh and that's enough

    Simply having a wonderful Christmastime
    Simply having a wonderful Christmastime
    Simply having a wonderful Christmastime

    Ooh…Christmas
    Ooh…Wonderful Christmastime
    Ooh…Christmas
    Ooh…Wonderful Christmastime

  • Hooray it’s Christmastime
    But there’s one lousy tradition
    There’s a certain show that we will see
    That is old and many would agree
    It is time to find another show to substitute for the Nutcracker

    I’m watching the game but something’s wrong
    Staring is my wife her face looks long
    I know that look it must be me
    It’s not our anniversary
    I shrug, no clue.
    “What did I do?”
    She stands in disbelief
    WHAT?

    This holiday scene brings no laughter
    Forced going to see the Nutcracker
    I tried to block it from my mind
    Think fast! What reason can I find?
    Got work to do
    I’ll fake the flu
    No chance, I’m done, I’m screwed
    NO!
    I’ve seen the Nutcracker twenty times.
    Sure it is fun if you are four.
    BUM!
    Don’t call me a Scrooge cause it’s a bore.
    The story’s dated and that mouse-king-thing freaks me out!

    Well, guess I’m a guy what can I say
    I’d rather watch football than ballet
    I try my hardest not to grown
    And pull the score up on my phone
    As I complain,
    “It’s not the same.”
    We’re rushing out the door
    GO!
    All holiday shoppers on the road
    My holiday spirit might explode
    Of course there is no place to park
    We’re late the theater’s in the dark
    In no small feat
    We find a seat
    The show’s about to start.
    SHH!

    Here’s that song from Tetris
    And I know it’s the part when I fight
    Not to fall asleep
    March the wooden soldiers
    Bunch of mice start a fight
    Land of sweets
    Man this stuff’s trippy.

    By the way this story makes no sense
    Still don’t know
    What it means
    After all these years
    So confusing
    Feel like snoozing
    Eyes are heavy
    As I start to dream…

    Whoa I’m awake must’ve fallen asleep guess I didn’t snore or make a peep
    Cause my wife had no clue I’d been out-cold
    Is the finale coming up because there is no beer left in my cup
    To make it through I’ll need another drink
    Snuck out to the lobby
    Oh look I found a TV
    I forgot the game was happening
    It’s down to the wire
    Time will soon expire
    Down by one this kick would win it

    HUT-HUT!
    The ball’s snapped
    OH NO!
    The kick’s bad
    RIGHT RIGHT!
    No, we lost!
    NO!
    How could this night get any worse?

    Now I’m feeling all depressed
    But I still have to act impressed
    A pirouette oh wow that’s great a six year-old could do that too
    Saw my team lose at the bar
    Now dancing dudes in leotards
    Last Nutcracker hopefully
    But my wife’s thinking differently
    She leans in closely, whispers softly
    Can’t wait for you to take me next year.

  • VERSE 1
    I hope that you’re on that sleigh, it's filled up with gifts and toys for us.
    Santa please don’t delay, the stockings are hung, the tree’s lit up.

    I left you some milk and cookies on the shelf.
    I hope you don’t mind I had a couple myself.
    I CLEANED THE CHIMNEY SO YOU DON’T DIRTY YOURSELF.
    Check your list twice ,see I’ve been nice
    Mom and dad ‘ll agree yea.

    CHORUS
    Ho ho ho, Christmas is here, ya know it’s my favorite time of the year
    And when I’m dreaming you’re stuffin’ the tree, wishin and hoping that those gifts are for me,
    This is a shoutout to you– oh oh oh oh
    And all that you do – oh oh oh oh
    Santa its true,
    My dude
    Hey Santa, This song is for you.

    VERSE 2
    Morning I rise, open my eyes, just as wide as they can be.
    I'm Gonna run down the stairs, without a care to get me to that Christmas tree.

    Mama said,”boy you betta brush yo teeth.
    Nothing gets opened til you’ve sumthin to eat.
    Anticipation’s killin me.
    I’m eatin food, fast as I can, nothing CAN STOP ME NOW yeah

    BRIDGE
    I THOUGHT I HEARD YOU COMIN DOWN THE CHIMNEY
    I TRIED TO CATCH A GLIMPSE BUT MOMMA CAUGHT ME. SHE CAUGHT ME.

    I’M HAVIN A HARD TIME GETTING TO SLEEP, wondering if you made it to my tree. I hope you got my list but that's enough about me. Bout me

    Chorus.

    Outro- this song, this song is for you Santa and only you Santa oh ow oh this song this song is for you Santa and only you Santa.

  • Amazing Grace how sweet the sound
    That saved a wretch like me.
    I once was lost, but now I’m found
    Was blind but now I see.

    Twas grace that taught my heart to fear
    And grace my fears relieved.
    How precious did that grace appear
    The hour I first, first believed?

    When we’ve been there ten thousand years
    Bright shining as the sun.
    Oh we’ve no less days to sing God’s praise
    Then when we’ve first begun.

    So amazing…
    Thank you…
    For your grace…
    I can’t thank you enough.

    Amazing grace how sweet the sound
    That saved a wretch like me.
    I once was lost but now am found
    Was blind but now I see.

    So glad I see…
    I was blind but now I can see
    I was blind but now I see.

I just cannot stop listening to "Home by Christmas Day", it is a very nice song that I play full blast in my car almost constantly..with breaks for "Nutcracker" of course!! I have listened to those two songs for hours on end..just amazing!

Just curious why the lyrics are not highlighted/available for the original song "Home by Christmas Day"? This EP made me fall in back in love with Christmas music! Thank you!
