    Nice, Not Naughty

     

    I’m gonna be nice, not naughty.  I’m gonna be nice, not naughty.

    I’m gonna be good this year.  I’m gonna give lots and lots of cheer!

    I’m gonna be nice, not naughty.  I’m gonna be nice, not naughty.

    I’m gonna be good this year.  I’m gonna give lots and lots of cheer!

    I’m gonna be nice!

    Santa makes a list each year.  I hear he checks it twice.

    This time when he double checks, he’ll see that I’ve been nice!

    (spoken) N-i-c-e, Nice!

    I’m gonna be nice, not naughty.  I’m gonna be nice, not naughty.

    I’m gonna be good this year.  I’m gonna give lots and lots of cheer!

    I’m gonna be nice, not naughty.  I’m gonna be nice, not naughty.

    I’m gonna be good this year.  I’m gonna give lots and lots of cheer!

    I’m gonna be nice!

    I’m gonna be nice. I’m gonna be nice. I’m gonna be nice, not naughty but nice,

    Not naughty but nice.

    I’m gonna be nice!  Nice!

     

    Jingly

     

    Oh I love it when I hear those jingles, ‘cause I know it’s that time of year.  

    It’s a happy sound, a light and merry sound that brings a smile and good cheer.

    Oh, they’re so jingly! Lovely and ringly! Pleasant and tingly, jingle bells!

    Oh, they’re so jingly! Lovely and ringly! Pleasant and tingly, jingle bells!

    Oh I love it when I hear those jingles, ‘cause I know it’s that time of year.  

    It’s a happy sound, a light and merry sound that brings a smile and good cheer.

    Oh, they’re so jingly! Lovely and ringly! Pleasant and tingly, jingle bells!

    Oh, they’re so jingly! Lovely and ringly! Pleasant and tingly, jingle bells!

    Jingle Bells!

     

    Winter Wiggles

     

    I get the wiggles in the winter.  I get the wiggles when it’s cold outside.

    I think it’s thrillin’, but I won’t be chillin’, cause I can’t hold this wiggling inside!

    I got the wiggles, the winter wiggles!  I got the wiggles, the winter wiggles!

    I’ve got the frosty, freezy, icy, breazy wiggles!  I’ve got the chilly, willy, can’t stand still-y wiggles!

    I get the wiggles in the winter.  I get the wiggles when it’s cold outside.

    I think it’s thrillin’, but I won’t be chillin’, cause I can’t hold this wiggling inside!

    I got the wiggles, the winter wiggles!  I got the wiggles, the winter wiggles!

    Stop!

    Africa

     

    I hear the drums echoing tonight, But she hears only whispers of some quiet conversation

    She's coming in twelve-thirty flight, Her moonlit wings reflect the stars that guide me toward salvation.  I stopped an old man along the way, Hoping to find some old forgotten words or ancient melodies. He turned to me as if to say, "Hurry, boy, it's waiting there for you."

    It's gonna take a lot to drag me away from you, There's nothing that a hundred men or more could ever do, I bless the rains down in Africa, Gonna take some time to do the things we never had

    The wild dogs cry out in the night, as they grow restless longing for some solitary company

    I know that I must do what's right, sure as Kilimanjaro rises like Olympus above the Serengeti

    I seek to cure what's deep inside, frightened of this thing that I've become

    It's gonna take a lot to drag me away from you, There's nothing that a hundred men or more could ever do, I bless the rains down in Africa, Gonna take some time to do the things we never had

     

    "Hurry, boy, she's waiting there for you."

     

    It's gonna take a lot to drag me away from you, there's nothing that a hundred men or more could ever do, I bless the rains down in Africa, I bless the rains down in Africa, I bless the rains down in Africa, I bless the rains down in Africa, I bless the rains down in Africa

    Gonna take some time to do the things we never had

    Menorah Glow

     

    The light shines in our window. It’s warm and bright. It’s our menorah glow.

    We light a candle ev’ry night to celebrate the Festival of Lights.

    Eight candles represent each night. And the shammash makes each one shine bright.

    A lovely sight. We celebrate this Hanukkah with love and joy and our menorah.

    The light shines in our window. It’s warm and bright. It’s our menorah glow.

    Honor past and present, gather families, wish them all shalom.

    And the warmth we all know, comes from our menorah glow.

    Ooh. Menorah glow. Ooh. Menorah glow.




    Chanukah, oh Chanukah

     

    Lai lai lai lai...Chanukah, oh Chanukah, come light the Menorah  

    Chanukah, oh Chanukah, come light the Menorah

    Gather around the table and lets have a treat  

    Happy songs we’ll sing and latkes we’ll eat

    (Repeat paragraph)

    And while we are singing The candles are burning bright

    One for each night, they shed a sweet light

    And remind us of days long ago One for each night, they shed a sweet light

    And remind us of days long ago

    Oh Chanukah, oh Chanukah, a festival of joy  

    A holiday, a jolly day, for every girl and boy  Gather around the table and let’s have a treat Happy songs we’ll sing and latkes we’ll eat

    (Repeat paragraph)

    And while we are singing  We’ll think of those days long ago

    And then we’ll tell the story of the miracles, glory  And dance by the candles burning low, And then we’ll tell the story of the miracles, glory  And dance by the candles burning low

    And while we are singing  We’ll think of those days long ago

    And then we’ll tell the story of the miracles, glory And dance by the candles burning low

    And then we’ll tell the story of the miracles, glory  And dance by the candles burning low

    Lai lai lai lai

    Northern Lights

     

    Everytime, I close my eyes, I can touch the colors around me

    Suddenly, I realize, everything I thought was impossible is here

    And my heart sings…in a world so incredible, And everything…burns much brighter

    I, I…want to fly, I…..into this beautiful life, I think it’d be nice with you…

    I…want to fly, I…..into this beautiful life, I think it’d be nice with you…

    Fingertips, Northern lights, tracing colors right through the sky

    Underneath, a lullaby, I never felt as blissful as I do here…

    And my heart sings…in a world so incredible, And everything…shines much brighter

    I, I…want to fly, I…..into this beautiful life, I think it’d be nice with you…

    I…want to fly, I…..into this beautiful life, I think it’d be nice with you…

    Set the night on fire if we want to , Hanging out with the stars and the big moon

    I’m very well, thank you, how do you do?

    Set the night on fire if we want to , Hanging out with the stars and the big moon, Put them down for a dance with with your lasso

    I think it’d be nice with you…with you…



    Good King Wenceslas

     

    Good King Wenceslas look’d out, On the feast of Stephen, When the snow lay ’round about, Deep and crisp and even.

    Brightly shone the moon that night, Though the frost was cruel, When a poor man came in sight, Gath’ring winter fuel.

    “Hither, page, and stand by me, If thou know’st it telling, Yonder peasant, who is he? Where and what his dwelling?”

    “Sire, he lives a good league hence, Underneath the mountain, Right against the forest fence, By St. Agnes’ fountain.”

    “Bring me flesh and bring me wine, Bring me pine logs hither.  Thou and I will see him dine When we bear them thither.”

    Page and monarch, forth they went, Forth they went together, Through the rude wind’s wild lament And the bitter weather.

    In his master’s steps he trod, Where the snow lay dinted. Heat was in the very sod Which the saint had printed.

    Therefore, Christian men, be sure, Wealth or rank possessing, Ye who now will bless the poor, Shall yourselves find blessing.

    Therefore, Christian men, be sure, Wealth or rank possessing, Ye who now will bless the poor, Shall yourselves find blessing.  Good King.

    Celebrate (Everyone enters Arena, singing words in bold)

     

    Mom if you can hear me, I think I made it, 20,000 fans from the stage I'm standing on

    I want you to know I appreciate it, One day I'll come home, we can celebrate

    Mom I gotta go, the curtain's calling, All the way from Rome, I'm really sorry

    Tell my little sister I said hey, One day I'll come home, we can celebrate

    Yeah these late nights and these long drives, Full moons under dark skies                            

    Tears fall behind phone screens, Lonely hearts lead to bad dreams                                         

    Wish that I could be there for you, I hope that life will be fair for you                                           

    It's hard to sleep 'cause I'm always thinking And passing out off of a cold dream                     

    And I hope you know that I'm not complaining, Hope you know I appreciate it                        

    Every day is just filled with love Man every day is just thanks and praises                                

    But, memories of your birthdays they get me in the worst ways                                             

    When you say "dad, it's okay", When you get home we can celebrate

    Mom if you can hear me, I think I made it, 20,000 fans from the stage I'm standing on

    I want you to know I appreciate it, One day I'll come home, we can celebrate

    Mom I gotta go, the curtain's calling, All the way from Rome, I'm really sorry

    Tell my little sister I said hey, One day I'll come home, we can celebrate

    Not the money, not the fame, Love the struggle, love the pain                                                 

    After all that we have gained We realize we're all the same                                                   

    Sacrifice my brothers cried, We've been gone when family died                                          

    Losing my focus, symphonies open, Singing my opus, just for a moment                                 

    One day I'll get home and we can throw a big party Invite other people that helped us get started

    To all of you artists that feel a martyr Don't ever give up you just gotta go harder

    Mom if you can hear me, I think I made it, 20,000 fans from the stage I'm standing on

    I want you to know I appreciate it, One day I'll come home, we can celebrate

    Mom I gotta go, the curtain's calling, All the way from Rome, I'm really sorry

    Tell my little sister I said hey, One day I'll come home, we can celebrate

    Every night feels like another weekend, Keep pretending that it's easy                                    

    Sold my soul for a wrecking ball, I shot at the moon but I mostly fall

    Mom if you can hear me, I think I made it, 20,000 fans from the stage I'm standing on

    I want you to know I appreciate it, One day I'll come home, we can celebrate

    Mom I gotta go, the curtain's calling, All the way from Rome, I'm really sorry

    Tell my little sister I said hey, One day I'll come home, we can celebrate

    One day I’ll come home, we can celebrate
