The Cotswold Voices

The CV Xmas Medley

All: Silent night, holy night

All is calm, all is bright

Round yon Virgin Mother and Child

Holy Infant so tender and mild

Sleep in heavenly peace

Sleep in heavenly peace

 

(B, T, S: oohs) Altos: I don't want a lot for Christmas

There is just one thing I need

Sops: I don't care about the presents

Underneath the Christmas tree

(B & T ahs) A & S: I just want you for my own

More than you could ever know

Make my wish come true...

All: All I want for Christmas

Is you...

 

(B, T, S: Oohs) Altos: I don't want a lot for Christmas

There is just one thing I need

(and I) Sops: I don't care about the presents

Underneath the Christmas tree

(Oohs) Altos:  I don't need to hang my stocking

There upon the fireplace

(Ahs) Sops: Santa Claus won't make me happy

With a toy on Christmas day

(B, T, ahs) A & S: I just want you for my own

More than you could ever know

Make my wish come true

All: All I want for Christmas is

S: you...Oooh, You baby

A, T, B: Last Christmas

I gave you my heart

But the very next day you gave it away

B, T, S: When the snowman brings the snow (A: When the snowman brings the snow)

Well he just might like to know (A: Well he just might like to know)

He's put a great big smile, on somebody's face

If you jump into your bed (A: If you jump into your bed)

Quickly cover up your head (A: Quickly cover up your head)

Don't you lock the doors

You know that sweet Santa Claus in on the way

 

All: Well I wish it could be Christmas, every day

When the kids start singing and the band begins to play

Oh, I wish it could be Christmas, every day

Let the bells ring out for Christmas

 

All: Have yourself a merry little Christmas,

Let your heart be light

From now on,

our troubles will be out of sight

 

Have yourself a merry little Christmas,

Make the Yule-tide gay,

From now on,

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

Gather near to us once more.

 

Through the years

We all will be together,

If the Fates allow

Hang a shining star upon the highest bough.

And have yourself a merry little Christmas now.

 

Christmas is not all it's cracked up to be

Families fighting around a plastic tree

Nothing on the TV that you'd want to see

And it's hardly ever snowing

The way it's meant to be

(Like in) White Christmas year after year

Bing Crosby, Bing Crosby,

Are you listening to me?

 

It doesn't often snow at Christmas

the way it's meant to do

But I'll still have a glow at Christmas

because I'll be with you

 

The Christmas message was long ago lost

Now it's all about shopping and how much things cost

(It's meant to) be goodwill as well as synthetic fun

and what is this year's festive number one

 

It doesn't often snow at Christmas

the way it's meant to do

But I'll still have a glow at Christmas

because I'll be with you

 

(Like in) White Christmas year after year

Bing Crosby, Bing Crosby,

Are you listening to me?

 

It doesn't often snow at Christmas

the way it's meant to do

But I'll still have a glow at Christmas

because I'll be with you

 

Repeat

It Doesn't Often Snow At Christmas
