Christmas in Hollis - Run DMC

It was December 24th on Hollis Ave in the dark

When I seen a man chilling with his dog in the park

I approached very slowly with my heart full of fear

Looked at his dog, oh my God, an ill reindeer

But then I was illin because the man had a beard

And a bag full of goodies, 12 o'clock had neared

So I turned my head a second and the man had gone

But he left his driver's wallet smack dead on the lawn

I picket the wallet up then I took a pause

Took out the license and it cold said "Santa Claus"

A million dollars in it, cold hundreds of G's

Enough to buy a boat and matching car with ease

But I'd never steal from Santa, cause that ain't right

So I'm going home to mail it back to him that night

But when I got home I bugged, cause under the tree

Was a letter from Santa and all the dough was for me

It's Christmas time in Hollis Queens

Mom's cooking chicken and collard greens

Rice and stuffing, macaroni and cheese

And Santa put gifts under Christmas trees

Decorate the house with lights at night

Snow's on the ground, snow white so bright

In the fireplace is the yule log

Beneath the mistle toe as we drink egg nog

The rhymes you hear are the rhymes of Darryl's

But each and every year we bust Chrsitmas carrols

ill steer this back to something boring/clean.

I love all the older ones/church chorales, the ones made for a choir/full orchestra.

Silent Night

Oh Holy Night

Joy to the World

Hark the Herald Angels Sing

Good King Wenceslas

Ding Dong Merrily on High

Bring a Torch Jeanette Isabella (Un Flambeau)

Sleigh Ride

Greensleeves/What Child is This

We Three Kings

First Noel

And the greatest of all is probably:

Handel - The Messiah! The closing to that is simply awesome.

Gotta at least mention Garth Brooks' "Belleauwood."

Garth Brooks, Belleau Wood Lyrics

Looking for Garth Brooks tabs and chords? Browse alphabet (above).

Oh, the snowflakes fell in silence

Over Belleau Wood that night

For a Christmas truce had been declared

By both sides of the fight

As we lay there in our trenches

The silence broke in two

By a German soldier singing

A song that we all knew

Though I did not know the language

The song was "Silent Night"

Then I heard my buddy whisper,

"All is calm and all is bright"

Then the fear and doubt surrounded me

'Cause I'd die if I was wrong

But I stood up in my trench

And I began to sing along

Then across the frozen battlefield

Another's voice joined in

Until one by one each man became

A singer of the hymn

Then I thought that I was dreaming

For right there in my sight

Stood the German soldier

'Neath the falling flakes of white

And he raised his hand and smiled at me

As if he seemed to say

Here's hoping we both live

To see us find a better way

Then the devil's clock struck midnight

And the skies lit up again

And the battlefield where heaven stood

Was blown to hell again

But for just one fleeting moment

The answer seemed so clear

Heaven's not beyond the clouds

It's just beyond the fear

No, heaven's not beyond the clouds

It's for us to find it here

Carol of the Bells - any version, but I really like the Trans-Siberian Orchestra's version (Christmas in Sarejevo)

Little Drummer Boy - Bob Seger's version

Another Christmas Song by Jethro Tull

Snoopy v. the Red Baron (Christmas Bells) by the Royal Guardsmen

The Nutcracker

And when I want to annoy my wife:

Mistress for Christmas by AC/DC

Christmas at Ground Zero by Weird Al
