So many people that I run into

in Kroger or where ever I happen to be they let me know

Yeah we've got our tickets we're coming

It's nice to know that so many folks

have made this a part of their Christmas season

I love the winter weather

So the two of us can get together

There's nothing sweeter, finer

When it's nice and cold I can hold my baby closer to me

And collect the kisses that are due me

I love the winter weather

'Cause I've got my love to keep me warm

I can't remember a worse December

Just watch those icicles form

What do I care if icicles form?

I've got my love to keep me warm

Off with my overcoat off with my glove

I need no overcoat I'm burning with love

I love the winter weather

So the two of us can get together

There's nothing sweeter, finer

When it's nice and cold I can hold my baby closer to me

And collect the kisses that are due me

I love the winter weather

'Cause I've got my love to keep me warm

Off with my overcoat off with my glove

I need no overcoat I'm burning with love

I love the winter weather

So the two of us can get together

There's nothing sweeter, finer

When it's nice and cold I can hold my baby closer to me

And collect the kisses that are due me

I love the winter weather

'Cause I've got my love to keep me warm

got my love to keep me warm

I grew up in a quintessential New England village

and we didn't have a lot

so my parents were industrious and creative

we would make a pinata

every night before Christmas

and we would hit the pinata

and we would also decorate a tree outside

with edible food for all the wildlife and the birds

and that was something that is just lovely

Oh the weather outside is frightful

But the fire is so delightful

And since we've no place to go

Let it snow let it snow let it snow

it doesn't show signs of stopping

And I've brought me some corn for popping

The lights are turned way down low

Let it snow, let it snow

When we finally kiss goodnight

How I'll hate going out in the storm

But if you really hold me tight

All the way home I'll be warm

the fire is slowly dying

And my dear, we're still goodbying

and as long as you love me so

Let it snow, let it snow

by this fire with this weather

the fire is so delightful

And since we've no place to go

Let it snow, let it snow

and it doesn't show signs of stopping

And I've brought me some corn for popping

The lights are turned way down low

Let it snow, let it snow

When we finally kiss goodnight

How I'll hate going out in the storm

But if you really hold me tight

All the way home I'll be warm

Oh the fire is slowly dying

And, my dear we're still goodbying

But as long as you love me so

Let it snow, let it snow

When we finally kiss goodnight

How I'll hate going out in the storm

But if you really hold me tight

All the way home I'll be warm

Oh the fire is slowly dying

And, my dear we're still goodbying

But as long as you love me so

Let it snow, let it snow

Let it snow, let it snow

One of my favorite things that she is doing

O Holy Night

She does a traditional rendiditon of it

but it's just beautiful

with her voice its just soraing

It really takes you there

What she's doing I feel is spritual

because she really has a lot of respect

for these Christmas tunes

O holy night the stars are brightly shining

It is the night of our dear Saviour’s birth

Long lay the world in sin and error pining

til he appeared and the soul felt it's worth

A thrill of hope the weary world rejoices

For yonder breaks

A new and glorious morn

Fall on your knees

O hear the angel voices

O night divine

O night when Christ was born

O night devine O night devine

A thrill of hope the weary world rejoices

For yonder breaks

A new and glorious morn

Fall on your knees

O hear the angel voices

O night divine

O night when Christ was born

O night devine O night devine

It's nice when you've been playing with people for so long

becasue you can exchange a look on stage

and everybody knows what that means

It's like having a team

we know each others signals

we know what the other person is going to do

so that just makes it fun

O Christmas tree o Christmas tree

How lovely are thy branches

O Christmas tree o Christmas tree

How lovely are thy branches

not only green when summer's here

but also when 'tis cold and drear.

O Christmas tree o Christmas tree

how lovely are thy branches

O Tannenbaum o Tannenbaum

Thy candles shine so brightly

O Tannenbaum o Tannenbaum

Thy candles shine so brightly

From base to summit tall and bright

You filled my heart with such delight

O Tannenbaum o Tannenbaum

Thy candles shine so brightly

O Christmas tree o Christmas tree

how lovely are thy branches

not only green when summer's here

but also when 'tis cold and drear.

O Christmas tree o Christmas tree

how lovely are thy branches

Ella Fitzgerald's takes on Christmas music I love

I always play it and I always play Nat King Cole at Christmas

So we're doing a couple of swinging tunes ya know

Have yourself a Merry little Christmas

in a swing feel

so that's natural for Bob Thompson

and I to do that sort of music togather

Have yourself a Merry little Christmas

Let your heart be light

Next year all our troubles

will be o ut of sight

Have yourself a Merry little Christmas

Make the yule-tide gay

Next year all our

troubles will be miles away

here we are as in olden days

Happy golden days of yore

Faithful friends who are dear to us

Will be near to us once more

through the years, we'll always will be together

if the fates allow

Until then, we'll have to muddle through somehow

Have yourself a Merry little Christmas now

here we are as in olden days

Happy golden days of yore

Faithful friends who are dear to us

Will be near to us once more

through the years, we'll always will be together

if the fates allow

Until then, we'll have to muddle through somehow

Have yourself a Merry little Christmas

Have yourself a Merry little Christmas

Have yourself a Merry little Christmas now

I love Christmas music I'm a big closet cornball

there's a lot of songs i love

it was easy for me to choose a bunch of Christmas songs

The Christmas Song by Mel Torme I'm a big fan of Nat King Cole

So that one was an easy choice

Chestnuts roasting on an open fire

Jack Frost nipping at your nose

Yule-tide 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 every 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

Although it's been said many times, many ways

Merry Christmas to you

They know that Santa's on his way

He's loaded lots of toys and goodies on his sleigh

And every 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

Although it's been said many times, many ways

Merry Christmas to you

One of my favorite arrangements is Auld Lang Syne. in 26 years

of doing the show, we are always looking for something new

this year we found something we've never done before

and that's definitely a part of the season

so we have nice little up tempo contemporary arrangement of that

Rockin' around the Christmas Tree

At the Christmas party hop

Mistletoe hung where you can see

Ev'ry couple tries to stop

Rockin' around the Christmas Tree

Let the spirit ring

Later we'll have some pumpkin pie

And we'll do some carolling

You will get a sentimental feeling when you hear

Voices singing, "Let's be jolly -

Deck the halls with boughs of holly!"

Rockin' around the Christmas Tree

Have a happy holiday

Everyone's dancing merrily

In a new old fashioned way

You will get a sentimental feeling when you hear

Voices singing, "Let's be jolly -

Deck the halls with boughs of holly!"

Rockin' around the Christmas Tree

Have a happy holiday

Everyone's dancing merrily

In a new old fashioned way

Angels we have heard on high

Sweetly singing o'er the plains

And the mountains in reply

Echoing their joyous strains

Gloria, in excelsis Deo

Gloria, in excelsis Deo

Shepherds, why this jubilee?

Why your joyous strains prolong?

What the gladsome tidings be

Which inspire your heav’nly song?

Gloria, in excelsis Deo

Gloria, in excelsis Deo

Come to Bethlehem and see

Him Whose birth the angels sing

Come, adore on bended knee

Christ the Lord, the newborn King

Gloria, in excelsis Deo

Gloria, in excelsis Deo

Merry Christmas everybody Merry Merry Christmas

and now I want everyone to sing this with me OK 1. 2. 3.

Gloria, in excelsis Deo

Gloria, in excelsis Deo

Gloria, in excelsis Deo

Gloria, in excelsis Deo
