Synchronicity edgar?

VENI EMMANUEL



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Veni, veni Emanuel!
Captivum solve Israel!
Qui gemit in exilio,
Privatus Dei Filio.

Refrain

Gaude, gaude, Emanuel
Nascetur pro te, Israel.

Veni, veni o oriens!
Solare nos adveniens,
Noctis depelle nebulas,
Dirasque noctis tenebras.

Refrain

Veni, veni Adonai!
Qui populo in Sinai
Legem dedisti vertice,
In Maiestate gloriae.

I hope those folks who are always wanting Latin translations find this thread. <smile>

Me too. I can't read beyond simple English.

You can if you look it up on the web, edgar. Razz

That was the Latin version of O Come O Come Immanuel.

I know the first verse from memory in English:

O Come O come Immanuel,
And ransom captive Israel,
Who's born in lonely exile here.
Until the son of God appear.

Rejoice! Rejoice! Immanuel,
Shall come to thee O Israel.

I wondered for thirty years about the meaning of a song I love: Cucurucucu Paloma. Finally got it translated on the web.

This has been a crazy night, edgar. I was looking for a song called La Paloma and ran across a site loaded with old songs.

Well, my friend. Guess I'll turn in now.

Goodnight,
From Flo

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 loaded lots of toys and goodies
On his sleigh


And ev'ry mother's
Child is gonna spy to see if
Reindeer really know how to fly


And so, I'm offering this
Simple phrase to kids from
One to ninety-two
Altho' it's been said many times
Many ways; "Merry Christmas to you"

Happy Christmas (war Is Over)

So this is Christmas
And what have you done
Another year over
And a new one just begun
Ans so this is Christmas
I hope you have fun
The near and the dear one
The old and the young
A very merry Christmas
And a happy New Year
Let's hope it's a good one
Without any fear
And so this is Christmas
For weak and for strong
For rich and the poor ones
The world is so wrong
And so happy Christmas
For black and for white
For yellow and red ones
Let's stop all the fight
A very merry Christmas
And a happy New Year
Let's hope it's a good one
Without any fear
And so this is Christmas
And what have we done
Another year over
And a new one just begun
Ans so this is Christmas
I hope you have fun
The near and the dear one
The old and the young
A very merry Christmas
And a happy New Year
Let's hope it's a good one
Without any fear
War is over over
If you want it
War is over
Now...

"Christmas Caravan" by Squirrel Nut Zippers is a nice little album and a fun listen.

As for individual songs: My favorite Christmas song ever recorded is Boyz II Men's version of "Silent Night." An especially nerdy song is "I Want an Alien for Christmas."

"Christmas in Prison" by John Prine gives a different side of the standard holiday song.

I'll probably post more here later.

Does anyone know the second verse of this harmony to Silent Night.

The first verse goes like this...

Neath the silent stars
the town is sleeping
Flocks are safe within the hold
secure from danger, want or cold
Silent, silent night
Holy, holy night
Sleep in Peace
Sleep in heavenly peace,
In peace.

There is a modernized version of Do You Hear What I Hear that I like. Don't recall the artist.

Christmas Island by Jimmy Buffett. Makes me forget our dreary weather around christmas here. Makes me think of Key West, and I think that's the purpose.

Long time ago in Bethlehem,
so the Holy Bible say,
Mary's boy child Jesus Christ,
was born on Christmas Day.

Hark, now hear the angels sing, a new king born today,
and man will live for evermore, because of Christmas day.
Trumpets sound and angels sing, listen to what they say,
that man will live for evermore, because of Christmas Day.

While shepherds watch their flocks by night,
them see a bright new shining star,
them hear a choir sing,
the music seemed to come from afar.

Hark, now hear the angels sing, a new king born today,
and man will live for evermore, because of Christmas day.
Trumpets sound and angels sing, listen to what they say,
that man will live for evermore, because of Christmas Day.

Now Joseph and his wife, Mary,
come to Bethlehem that night,
them find no place to born she child,
not a single room was in sight.

Hark, now hear the angels sing, a new king born today,
and man will live for evermore, because of Christmas day.
Trumpets sound and angels sing, listen to what they say,
that man will live for evermore, because of Christmas Day.

By and by they find a little nook
in a stable all forlorn,
and in a manger cold and dark,
Mary's little boy was born.

Hark, now hear the angels sing, a new king born today,
and man will live for evermore, because of Christmas day.
Trumpets sound and angels sing, listen to what they say,
that man will live for evermore, because of Christmas Day.

"Blue Yule" with John Lee Hooker, Lightening Hopkins, Johnny & Edgar Winter, Louis Jordan, Sonny Boy Williams and a host of others. And Handel Messiah by the Philharmonic Chorus and Orchestra. Every Christmas for many, many years while still living at home, it was my job to cue up my mothers' Handel Messiah on the stereo and she listened and sang while preparing dinner. She absolutely loved it.

Frosty the Snow Man

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 children
know how he came to life one day
There must have been some magic in that
old silk hat they found
For when they placed it on his head
he began to dance around
O Frosty the snowman
was alive as he could be
And the children say he could laugh
and play just the same as you and me
Thumpetty thump thump
thumpety thump thump
Look at Frosty go
Thumpetty thump thump
thumpety thump thump
Over the hills of snow


Frosty the snowman knew
the sun was hot that day
So he said
"Let's run and
we'll have some fun
now before I melt away
" Down to the village
with a broomstick in his hand
Running here and there all
around the square saying
Catch me if you can
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!"
For Frosty the snow man
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 Frosty go
Thumpetty thump thump
thumpety thump thump
Over the hills of snow

All I Want For Christmas Is My Two Front Teeth

Every body stops
and stares at me
These two teeth are
gone as you can see
I don't know just who
to blame for this catastrophe!
But my one wish on Christmas Eve
is as plain as it can be!

All I want for Christmas
is my two front teeth,
my two front teeth,
see my two front teeth!
Gee, if I could only
have my two front teeth,
then I could with you
"Merry Christmas."
It seems so long since I could say,
"Sister Susie sitting on a thistle!"

Gosh oh gee, how happy I'd be,
if I could only whistle (thhhh)
All I want for Christmas
is my two front teeth,
my two front teeth,
see my two front teeth.
Gee, if I could only
have my two front teeth,
then I could wish you
"Merry Christmas!"

Have yourself a merry little Christmas,
Let your heart be light
From now on,
our troubles will be out of sight
Have yourself a merry little Christmas,
Make the Yule-tide gay,
From now on,
our troubles will be miles away.

Here were are as in olden days,
happy golden days of yore.
Faithful friends who are dear to us
gather near to us once more.

Through the years we all will be together
If the Fates allow
Hang a shining star upon the highest bough.
And have yourself a merry little Christmas now.

It's the most wonderful time of the year.
With the kids jingle belling,
and everyone telling you,
"Be of good cheer,"
It's the most wonderful time of the year.

There'll be parties for hosting,
marshmallows for toasting and
caroling out in the snow.
there'll be scary ghost stories and
tales of the glories of Christmases
long, long ago.

It's the most wonderful time of the year.
There'll be much mistletoeing
and hearts will be glowing,
when loved ones are near.
It's the most wonderful time of the year.
