My favorite christmas song is Santa Baby, originally recorded by Eartha Kitt.

Santa Baby
Just slip a sable under the tree
For me
Been an awful good girl
Santa Baby
So hurry down the chimney tonight

Santa baby
A '54 convertible too
Light blue
I'll wait up for you, dear
Santa baby
So hurry down the chimney tonight

Think of all the fun I've missed
Think of all the fellas that I haven't kissed
Next year I could be just as good
If you'll check off my Christmas list

Santa Baby
I want a yacht and really that's not
A lot
Been an angel all year
Santa Baby
So hurry down the chimney tonight

Santa honey
One little thing I really need
The deed
To a platinum mine
Santa Baby
So hurry down the chimney tonight

Santa cutie
And fill my stocking with a duplex
And cheques
Sign your 'x' on the line
Santa cutie
And hurry down the chimney tonight

Come and trim my Christmas tree
With some decorations bought at Tif-fa-ny's
I really do believe in you
Let's see if you believe in me

Santa Baby
Forgot to mention one little thing
A ring
I don't mean on the phone
Santa Baby
So hurry down the chimney tonight
Hurry down the chimney tonight



And this one too:

Nuttin' For Christmas

I broke my bat on Johnny's head;
Somebody snitched on me.
I hid a frog in sister's bed;
Somebody snitched on me.
I spilled some ink on Mommy's rug;
I made Tommy eat a bug;
Bought some gum with a penny slug;
Somebody snitched on me.

Oh, I'm gettin' nuttin' for Christmas
Mommy and Daddy are mad.
I'm getting nuttin' for Christmas
'Cause I ain't been nuttin' but bad.

I put a tack on teacher's chair
Somebody snitched on me.
I tied a knot in Susie's hair
Somebody snitched on me.
I did a dance on Mommy's plants
Climbed a tree and tore my pants
Filled the sugar bowl with ants
Somebody snitched on me.

So, I'm gettin' nuttin' for Christmas
Mommy and Daddy are mad.
I'm gettin' nuttin' for Christmas
'Cause I ain't been nuttin' but bad.

I won't be seeing Santa Claus;
Somebody snitched on me.
He won't come visit me because
Somebody snitched on me.
Next year I'll be going straight;
Next year I'll be good, just wait
I'd start now, but it's too late;
Somebody snitched on me.

So you better be good whatever you do
'Cause if you're bad, I'm warning you,
You'll get nuttin' for Christmas.

this song in particular means Christmas and friends and family to me

We're Going to SingWhen you see us coming up the walk
Better run and open the door.
Put the shortbread on the plate.
Have the egg nog ready to pour.
And get your voices ready,
You're going to want to sing a long
When you hear those neighborhood carollers
And your favorite Christmas song

We're gonna sing 'Joy to the World'
We're gonna sing 'Hark the Herald'
We're gonna sing 'Deck the Halls'
And 'It Came upon a Midnight Clear'
We're gonna sing every Christmas Carol
That we can remember
We're gonna end with a 'Merry Christmas'
And a 'Happy New Year'

Some of us can sing in tune
The others sing loud and clear
We've got a version of 'We three Kings'
That you really have to hear.

Bless this house that has welcomed us
And shared it's Christmas cheer
Joy to all of the hearts within
All throughout the year
Good luck to all of us carolers
As down the road we go
May we be warmed by the toddy
And the joys of the Mistletoe

Query on an old post...
cneier wrote:
Ceili wrote:
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.


I know this descant as well, but we always sang "Flocks are safe within the fold". To the best of my knowledge, this is a descant only for the first verse, I don't think there is a second verse. If you hear otherwise, please let me know. Thanks, Connie


I have been searching for this for years! This harmony was taught to me in grammar school over 40 years ago... and I've never forgotten it. Does anyone have any idea of any recordings of it being sung with Silent Night? Failing that, does anyone have the actual title of it or perhaps a pointer to the sheet music?

Ore the moonlite plains are Angels winging
See their robes of glistening gold

@MarcW,
I learned this in about 1959-60 in a North Carolina elementary school music program. We learned two verses.
#2 Ore the moonlite plains are angels winging
See their robes of glistening gold
reflecting a celestial light
silent , silent night......

I love Manhattan Transfer's The Christmas Album,
http://www.amazon.com/The-Christmas-Album/dp/B00138F9O0/ref=sr_shvl_album_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1260411100&sr=301-2;
A Charlie Brown Christmas,
http://www.amazon.com/A-Charlie-Brown-Christmas-Expanded/dp/B000UBJRS0/ref=dm_ap_alb1?ie=UTF8&qid=1260411194&sr=1-1

Then my latest Christmas enjoyment: A Colbert Christmas which I believe you can only get on iTunes. The DVD can be pretty much bought everywhere they sell DVD's however.

This has become my favorite Christmas chestnut



The song was originally sung by Judy Garland in the film Meet Me In St Louis with drab and depressing lyrics



Quote:
Have yourself a merry little Christmas, it may be your last,
Next year we may all be living in the past
Have yourself a merry little Christmas, pop that champagne cork,
Next year we will all be living in New York.

No good times like the olden days, happy golden days of yore,
Faithful friends who were dear to us, will be near to us no more.

But at least we all will be together, if the Fates allow,
From now on we'll have to muddle through somehow.
So have yourself a merry little Christmas now.


Lyrics were changed( if the Lord allow- if the fates allow) and it became a poignant hit for the servicemen in the winter of '44

Chrissie Hynde' s version to me is sublime, mostly for the superb guitar by the late James Honeyman Scott

@panzade,
Well, I love BB King and you can actually HEAR the twinkle in his eye on this one - it always makes me laugh

same song but this is a new guy with a pretty impressive blues voice and a slightly different take

@aidan,
thanks for the tip. Yellin is a sound-alike for Stevie Wonder but has the blues chops of his own.
