Forget the tinsel and the pretty tree We’ll rock around the clock Just keep those Christmas lights a’flashing .. Forget the spinning tops - toys and trinkets Tommy guns and dolls .. He’s wired for sound .. he’s a rockroll Santa Claus He loves to boogie in his way cool tricked out ride Ah he can rhumba, yeah .. but that’s not his gig tonight Ooh .. a whole new generation wanna make some noise He brought a lot of amps and electric guitars For all of the girls and boys Forget the tinsel and the pretty tree We’ll rock around the clock Just keep those Christmas lights a’flashing .. Forget the spinning tops - toys and trinkets Tommy guns and dolls .. He’s wired for sound .. he’s a rockroll Santa Claus He’ll splash your party in his hip red leather suit He’d love to stick around but he’s got things to do A couple hundred sets of drums are loaded in his sleigh A whole new generation Wants to learn to play Forget the tinsel and the pretty tree We’ll rock around the clock Just keep those Christmas lights a’flashing .. Forget the spinning tops - toys and trinkets Tommy guns and dolls .. He’s wired for sound .. he’s a rockroll Santa Claus Ooh .. A whole new generation wanna make some noise Pianos, horns, wah-wah pedals For all the girls and boys Forget the tinsel and the pretty tree We’ll rock around the clock Just keep those Christmas lights a’flashing .. Forget the spinning tops - toys and trinkets Tommy guns and dolls .. He’s wired for sound .. he’s a rockroll Santa Claus He’s wired for sound .. he’s a rockroll Santa Claus He’s wired for sound .. he’s a rockroll Santa Claus Lyrics & Music (c) 2018 Robert James Angry Lion Publishing SOCAN/ASCAP A division of Horace Media 2018

Snow stuck around my little town Setting the scene for Christmas Tinsel galore, wreath on the door The most wonderful time of the year Middle school choir invaded the mall Singing - Oh - Holy - Night The stores are all closing I'm busy shopping Looking for Christmas lights Shopped for a toy - small orphan boy Anonymous Santa this Christmas Metal toy train dipped in red paint A friend to last all through the years Little town choir with angels on high Singing - Oh - Holy - Night I'm walking home Treasures in tow And ... I found some Christmas lights Here's to the wise men who followed the star Seek and you will find More than a baby born in a stable The first Christmas light So - snow's coming down in my pretty town Just a few sleeps 'til Christmas One little tree is perfect for me I've kept it for all of these years Church choir aided by angels on high Singing - Oh - Holy - Night When I get home I'll write a song One about Christmas lights So - here's to the wise men who followed the star Seek and you will find More than a baby born in a stable The first Christmas light Snow stuck around in my pretty town Just one more sleep ' til Christmas Lyrics & Music (c) 2021 Robert James Angry Lion Publishing SOCAN/ASCAP A division of Horace Media. 2021

If you're blue and all alone Just pick up your telephone And Santa - Santa's on his way If your tree won't stand up straight Don't you worry - just you wait Hey, Santa - Santa's on his way Well, he - ain't got no reindeer Or no big black shiny car And his long dark hair is starting to turn grey It's a cold old winter's night You need someone to treat you right Well, Santa - Santa's on his way .. Hanging up your mistletoe Yuletide logs are all a'glow And Santa - Santa's on his way Close the window, trim the lights You won't be alone tonight 'Cause Santa - Santa's on his way Well, he - ain't got no reindeer Or no big black shiny car And his long dark hair is starting to turn grey It's a cold old winter's night You need someone to treat you right Well, Santa - Santa's on his way .. Well, he - ain't got no reindeer Or no big black shiny car And his long dark hair is starting to turn grey If there's someone you would like to see Underneath your Christmas tree Well, Santa - Santa's on his way .. Hey, Santa - Santa's on his way .. Lyrics & Music (c)2007 Robert James Angry Lion Publishing SOCAN/ASCAP A division of Horace Media 2019

about

Welcome to Christmas. Ol’ SweetTooth wanted to be on a cover. And he wanted his own Christmas compilation. In order to get him to wear the hat we had to add candy canes to his bowl of sweet treats. I’m not sure what happened but the candy canes are missing and so is a tooth. But hey. We hope you’ll enjoy our little mini Christmas sampler. All three of these tracks have been previously released and can be found on all the major music platforms. We just thought we’d put a little package together for you. And also because ol’ SweetTooth had to see his face up in lights … I’m just cannon fodder, we know who really runs CandyLand. I’m good on the Christmas lights but it would seem I have to go shopping for candy canes. Someone’s developed a real taste for them.
And so … on behalf of all of us here at www.robertjames.ca we’d like to wish you a very Merry Christmas and a bright and shiny 2022. … xoRJ

We didn't get to test drive "Friday Night" the way we wanted to. Mr./Ms. Universe stepped in. Our seventh full-length release "Piece Of Your Ghost" becomes available on June 18th, 2021. I'll see what I can do about a single release or two. September sounds good. Summer's coming! Time to kick a few ghosts around ... Something in mind ... hmmm ... xoRJ ... more
