Declan Galbraith "Auld Lang Syne"




And once again here we are,
family and friends from afar,
Sharing our hopes and our dreams,
Laughing at old memories,
So when that old song starts,
Everyone sing from the heart.
Let's sing...
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And never brought to mind,
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
For the sake of auld lang syne.
Dancing as one, holding hands,
Like people all over the land,
Greeting a friend with a smile,
World is at peace for awhile,
So when that old song starts,
Everyone sing straight from the heart.
Let's sing...
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And never brought to mind,
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
For the sake of auld lang syne.
For auld lang syne, my friends,
For auld lang syne,
We'll take a cup of kindness yet,
For the sake of auld lang syne.
For auld lange syne, my friends,
For auld lange syne,
We'll take a cup of kindness yet,
For the sake of auld lang syne.
For auld lang syne, my friends,
For auld lang syne,
We'll take a cup of kindness yet,
For the sake of auld lang syne.
For auld lange syne, my friends,
For auld lange syne,
We'll take a cup of kindness yet,
For the sake of auld lang syne.

"All I Want for Christmas Is My Two Front Teeth"





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."
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, 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!"

Gee, if I could only
have my two front teeth,
then I could wish 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, thhhh)

"Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer"





You know Dasher and Dancer
And Prancer and Vixen,
Comet and Cupid
And Donner and Blitzen.
But do you recall
The most famous reindeer of all?

Rudolph, the red-nosed reindeer
had a very shiny nose.
And if you ever saw him,
you would even say it glows.

All of the other reindeer
used to laugh and call him names.
They never let poor Rudolph
join in any reindeer games.

Then one foggy Christmas Eve
Santa came to say:
"Rudolph with your nose so bright,
won't you guide my sleigh tonight?"

Then all the reindeer loved him
as they shouted out with glee,
Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer,
you'll go down in history!
