We Wish You A Merry Christmas

And a happy New Year with a star on top!

No, I didn't come up with the pan-ultimate song that would sum everything thing up in a tidy little package of 42 and wrapped with a bow. For the warm fuzzy feeling I shall post the lyrics to the Charlie Brown song Christmas Time Is Here ~ at the bottom of the page after this one. :> Wake up the kids!

When I was just a wee little lad full of health and joy,
My father homeward came one night and gave to me a toy.
A wonder to behold, it was, with many colors bright,
And the moment I laid eyes on it, it became my heart's delight.

It went "zip" when it moved and "bop" when it stopped,
And "whirr" when it stood still.
I never knew just what it was and I guess I never will.

The first time that I picked it up, I had a big surprise,
For right on its bottom were two big buttons that,
Looked like big green eyes.
I first pushed one and then the other, and then I twisted its lid,
And when I set it down again, this is what it did:


It first marched left and then marched right,
And then marched under a chair.
And when I looked where it had gone, it wasn't even there.
I started to sob and my daddy laughed, for he knew that I would find,
When I turned around, my marvelous toy, chugging from behind.


Well, the years have gone by too quickly, it seems,
I have my own little boy.
And yesterday I gave to him my marvelous little toy.
His eyes nearly popped right out of his head,
And he gave a squeal of glee.
Neither one of us knows just what it is,
but he loves it, just like me.

It still goes "zip" when it moves, "bop" when it stops,
And "whirr" when it stands still.
I never knew just what it was,
And I guess I never will.
I never knew just what it was,
And I guess I never will.

Okay, now for the "Christmas" one, you traditionalists. I was saving it for today, in point of fact. I don't know why of all the songs I wanted y'all to have the lyrics to this one. Write em down.

Christmas Time Is Here - "A Charlie Brown Christmas" version
From The Charlie Brown Christmas Special
by Vince Guaraldi

Christmas time is here,
happiness and cheer,
fun for all that children
call their favorite time of year.

Snowflakes in the air,
carols everywhere,
olden times and ancient rhymes
and love and dreams to share.

Sleigh bells in the air;
beauty every where;
yuletide by the fireside
and joyful memories there.

Christmas time is here;
we'll be drawing near;
oh that we could always see
such spirit through the year,
such spirit through the year.
