A Moffatts Christmas


Old Man Winter

He's got a real long beard that's white as snow
He's got icicle fingers and popsicle toes
He's got chestnuts roasting on an open fire
He's got you scootin' down the hill on a worn out tire
He's got sleigh bells ringing out into the night
He's got everybody feeling alright

When Old Man Winter comes to town
He's got a special way of dropping in
And spreading cheer around
You know Christmas is around the bend
And he won't let you down

When Old Man Winter comes to town
He's got the whole world sleeping beneath a blanket of white
He's got everything shining on a full moon night
He's got kids of all ages, clowning around,
Building snow forts and knocking them down
He's got frost on the windows, ice on the stairs
Smoke from the chimney and pine in the air

When Old Man Winter comes to town
He's got a special way of dropping in
And spreading cheer around
You know Christmas is around the bend
And he won't let you down

When Old Man Winter comes to town
He knows Frosty the Snowman and all the reindeer
And everybody's happy when he's been here
Cause he talks to Santa and all of the elves
And he took one day of Christmas and he turned it into twelve

When Old Man Winter comes to town
He's got a special way of dropping in
And spreading cheer around
You know Christmas is around the bend
And he won't let you down

When Old Man Winter comes to town

The Brightest Star

God said "I will place a star over Bethlehem
So that all can find their way to see the Son of Man."
The shepherds and the wisest kings
Fell on their knees to pray.
What a wondrous sight it must have been
On that Christmas day.
Heaven opened up its gates
And peace filled every heart.

Chorus:
Guided by the Holy light
Of The Brightest Star
Baby Jesus lying in a manger full of hay.
Gifts of gold lay at His feet as all the angels sang
Glory Alleluia
Christ the King was born
To take away the sins of man
On that Christmas morn.
Heaven opened up its gates
And peace filled every heart.

Chorus

Earl The Christmas Squirrel

Chorus:
Earl the Christmas Squirrel works form dawn till dusk,
Scurrying all around the world collecting Christmas nuts,
Walnuts, chestnuts, hazlenuts, peanuts,
And on his Hawaiian cruise
He goes nuts over coconuts and macadamias too!

Long ago on a winter's day Santa was riding on his sleigh
He saw Earl jumping through the trees,
he stopped to watch for a little while,
his rosy cheeks tipped on his smile,
he said "Earl would you do that for me?"

Chorus

So if you see a squireel up in a tree
You never know, it just might be
Earl gathering nuts for Christmas Eve
Now he's a part of Santa's crew
Just like the elves and Rudolph too,
Working all year long for you and me

Chorus

He goes nuts over coconuts and macadamias too!

Peace On Earth

No sugar plums
No stockings hung
But in their hearts
Christmas carols will be sung
They huddle round
In this little town
When celebrating the birth of Christ
New life is found
Peace on Earth
Good will to all men
Give joy to the season
by reaching out your hand
The Greatest Gift is the love we give
And we will find true peace of mind in the way we live
Peace on Earth
Good will to all men
Give joy to the season by reaching out your hand
The Greatest Gift is given free
True peace of mind, can't be found, beneath a Christmas tree
And we will find true peace of mind within you and me
Peace On Earth

Santa's In My Neighborhood

I hear footsteps on my roof
Sure must be some awesome dude
Bailing down the chimney with a big sack of loot
I hope he's wearing his bestest suit

All year long, I've been good
And Santa's in my neighborhood
Well he's driving that sleigh at the speed of light
To a billion houses in just one night
And there's milk and cookies at everyone
Man that man must weigh a ton

All year long, I've been good
And Santa's in my neighborhood
Christmas comes but once a year
And I sure hope it comes here

All my life I will believe
In the man that comes on Christmas eve
I'm so glad I've been so good
Cause Santa's in my neighborhood
All year long, I've been good
And Santa's in my neighborhood

(RAP:) Well I'm so glad I've been so good cause Santa's in my neighborhood
I hear footsteps on my roof, sure must be some awesome dude
All my life I will believe in that man that comes at Christmas Eve

How Would Jesus Feel

Think about a little boy
Born on Christmas Day
There's a party going on
But he feels so out of place
Cause every one is having fun
And playing with their games
There're presents for these other kids
But none that bare his name
That's how Jesus feels at Christmas
Sometimes he gets left out
Not every one remembers what the season's all about
So when you're out their buying gifts
Imagine what he might say
And how would Jesus feel if he came to your house Christmas Day
He feels so lonely
Rejected and torn
He thinks, why was I forgotten
On the day that I was born
Well there's, nothing wrong with Santa Claus
And lights and mistletoe
But don't forget the baby boy
That was born so long ago
How will Jesus feel this Christmas
Will he be left out
Will every one remember what the season's all about
So when you're out there buying gifts
Imagine what he might say
And how would Jesus feel if he came to your house Christmas day
And how would Jesus feel if he came to your house Christmas Day

Oh What A Wonderful Day

It's Christmas morning and Daddy's snoring as we sneak down the stairs
Outside it's snowing, our tree is glowing, there's magic in the air
To our surprise, before our eyes, there's presents everywhere
He hasn't forgotten to fill our stockings with Apples and Oranges and Pears
Merry Christmas to one and all it's all been worth the wait
Rip off the ribbons and open the gifts it's time to celebrate
Bring on the turkey, the ham and the yams and the cookies that momma makes
Christmas only comes once a year
Oh what a wonderful day

There's carolers singing and church bells ringing everywhere today
Uncles and cousins and kin by the dozens droppin' by to say
Merry Christmas to one and all it's all been worth the wait
Rip off the ribbons and open the gifts it's time to celebrate
Bring on the turkey, the ham and the yams and the cookies that momma makes
Christmas only comes once a year
Oh what a wonderful day

Merry Christmas to one and all it's all been worth the wait
Rip off the ribbons and open the gifts it's time to celebrate
Bring on the turkey, the ham and the yams and the cookies that momma makes
Christmas only comes once a year
Oh what a wonderful day

Christmas only comes once a year
Oh what a wonderful
Yes what a wonderful
Oh what a wonderful day

Santa Knows

Heard a scream and right before my eyes
There was Daddy swingin' by
Using those Christmas lights like a jungle vine.
Can't repeat what I heard him say
'Cause it's gettin' real close to Christmas Day
I'd take the chance but I'd know Santa Knows.

Santa Knows everything I do.
He knows everything I say.
So I ain't gonna do nuthin wrong...
'Cause Santa Knows.

Shakin' the gifts underneath the tree
Everything sounded so good to me
'Til I raised up and that tree come a-tumblin' down.
Mama come a-runnin--had that look in her eyes
Woulda blamed it on the dog but I couldn't lie
I'd take the chance but I'd know Santa Knows.

Santa Knows everything I do.
He knows everything I say.
So I ain't gonna do nuthin wrong...
'Cause Santa Knows.

Granny's sugar cookies were sittin' on the shelf
Mama said "Don't go helpin' yourself"
But I couldn't see the harm in takin' just one.
No one was lookin' the moment was right
I knew they'd be good 'n I could steal a bite
I'd take the chance but I'd know Santa Knows.

Santa Knows everything I do.
He knows everything I say.
So I ain't gonna do nuthin wrong...
'Cause Santa Knows.

Ain't gonna do nuthin' wrong.
Can't take a chance.
Ain't gonna do nuthin' wrong 'cause Santa Knows.
'Cause Santa Knows.

Christmas Eve

You can't believe everything you hear
And only half of what you see
But you can't deny the magic of a Christmas tree
It can melt a heart of stone
Bring warmth into a home
Give you strength when your alone on Christmas Eve
The message is so real
That's exactly how I feel
For the feelings everywhere on Christmas Eve

Chorus:
This Christmas Eve
Hang up your guns
This Christmas Eve
Aim with your heart
This Christmas Eve
We can change the world
We can all be one
There's a child inside of us
There's a child that needs your trust
Open up your heart to everyone
This Christmas Eve

There's a light that shines above
It's a symbol of our love
Like the star upon the tree in our living room
So I believe it's true
It's wrapped inside of you
The gift of love comes through on Christmas Eve

Chorus

This Christmas Eve
This Christmas Eve
We can change the world
We can all be one
There's a child inside of us
There's a child that needs your trust
Open up your heart to everyone
This Christmas Eve

Santa Left A Hole In Daddy's Pocket

Christmas time rolls around once a year
And I can't hardly wait
But Daddy looks at it differently
He don't mind if it comes late
Us kids get everything we want
And momma gets a whole lot too
And Dad's still got the same old thing
He never gets nothing new
Santa left a hole in Daddy's pocket

Chorus:
Once again this year
He surprised with all kinds of gifts
Sent Uncle Joe some some Christmas cheer
Momma got a brand new apron
And once again wouldn't you know
Santa left a hole in Daddy's pocket

This year Daddy had a plan
To get old Saint Nick back
He ate his milk and cookies
And hid all of his slacks
But Santa he knows everything
You know he can't be fooled
And Dad's still got the same old thing
He never gets nothing new
Santa left a hole in Daddy's pocket

Chorus 2x
