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

Da da da da da ta ta ta tum Snow’s on the ground and old man winter’s .. Just - spreading his blanket over my head You’re out there .. oh so sad and blue Shall I - send my heart out to you .. It’s nice to know you’re still writing I used to be - head over heels in love with you You’re falling apart .. what’s a girl to do Shall I - send my heart out to you .. Any old way you want it I’ll send it by bus or mail Any old way you want it I’ll send it by plane or rail It don’t matter which way - it’ll get through If I - send my heart out to you Da da da da da ta ta ta tum Courting a storm without a shelter I was - closest to cold I ever knew You put your heart in a jar .. the jar it broke in two Shall I - send my heart out to you Any old way you want it I’ll send it by bus or mail Any old way you want it I’ll send it by plane or rail It don’t matter which way - it’ll get through If I send my heart out to you Da da da da da ta ta ta tum Sending my heart out to you .. Sending my heart out to you .. Sending my heart out to you .. Yes, I’m - sending my heart out to you Lyrics & Music (c) 2008 Robert James Angry Lion Publishing SOCAN/ASCAP A division of Horace Media 2022

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

Merry Christmas, Season’s Greetings and Happy Holidays. Welcome to our annual Christmas playlist, CandyLand style. I’ve started to think of this playlist as something else. CandyLand’s Christmas Tree. Every year we add an ornament … er, song, or two. We’ve added a new ornament for our super improved 2023 mix. Why look boys and girls, there’s five ornaments on the tree now. I’m still hoping to add at least one more ornament, er .. song, before the year winds down. After we added A STAR, the art department (god bless ‘em) decided Ol’ SweetTooth needed a new cover for his Christmas Mix. So Mark, Don & Mal rolled up their sleeves and got busy. It took a lot of convincing and conniving to get him to hand over the bowl so we could throw some lights in there. Once he saw the gang loading up the candy canes he was all smiles. We love that toothy grin. What’s left of it. The grin that stole Christmas … If you’re enjoying our little playlist we’re very grateful. Throughout the years we’ve been lucky enough to make the music we enjoy. And to share our humble gifts with you. And we thank you mightily for it. Let the Candy Canes reign. Or rain Candy Canes. And so. From our CandyLand to your CandyLand we wish you the merriest of Christmases and a very bright and shiny 2024 … xo RJ
