From the 2004 CDAn Eclectic Christmas Album.
Most of the songs crafted by Dean Olson and Jim Romero have been originals, but there are also cover songs in

Jim played the guitars in

Enjoy this one ANYTIME of

Chestnuts roasting on an open fire
/ Jack Frost nipping at your nose
Yuletide carols being sung by a choir
/ And folks all dressed up like
I think everybody
knows aturkey and that famous mistletoe /
Help to make the season bright
Tiny tots with their eyes all aglow
/ Will find it hard to sleep tonight.
Cause they know that Santa's on his
way / He's loaded lots of toys and goodies
on his magic Christmas sleigh
And every mother's child is gonna stay up
late and spy / Just to see if reindeer really know how to
And so, I'm
offering this very simple phrase / To kids from one to ninety-two
song's been played many times, many ways
Christmas to you.
Christmas / Merry Merry Christmas
topping on the tree / Light it up and sing with me
and mistletoe / Angels in the Christmas snow
