In December
I will be
a baubled bangled
Christmas tree
with soup bowls
draped all over me.
Merry once
merry twice
merry chicken soup
with rice.
        Maurice Sendak

Two merry blue eyes
A queer little nose
A long snowy beard
And cheeks like a rose
A round chubby man
A big bulging pack
Hurrah for Old Santa
We're glad he's come back!
A Christmas Tree
One little star
On the top of the tree
Two little presents
Underneath for me
Three silver ropes
Twisted round the tree
Four little colored lights
Shining prettily
Five shining balls
Glowing silvery
Oh what a sight
For us to see.
Little Pine Tree
In the summertime my branches were
A place for birds to nest.
In autumn my branches were
Their food for food and rest.
And now that wintertime is here
I hope - I hope to be
All glistening bright with snowflakes
--The birds' Christmas Tree.
My Goodness, my goodness,
It's Christmas again.
The bells are all ringing
I do not know when
I've been so excited.
The tree is all fixed,
The candles are lighted,
The pudding is mixed.
C is for Candle
That lights Christmas night.

H is for Holly
So prickly and bright.

R is for Reindeer
That pull Santa's sleigh.

I is for Infant
With birthday today.

S is for Stocking
Full of presents you know.

T is for Tree
All covered with snow.

M is for Music
That all children sing.

A is for Angel
With sparkling wing.

S is for Santa
That dear old man.
We all like to see him
As much as we can.
Stay, Christmas

Stay, Christmas!
Stay, Christmas!
Do not go
Away Christmas.

Laughter, jolly,
Lanterns, holly,
Bells ringing,
Children singing,
All things glad
Nothing sad...

Oh stay, Christmas!
Stay Christmas,
Do not go
Away, Christmas.
You Are My Reindeer
Tune:  You Are My Sunshine

You are my reindeer, my wild reindeer.
You make me angry when you won't mind.
You are my reindeer, my wild reindeer.
Please don't run away again!

You are my reindeer, my wild reindeer.
What will I do with all of you?
Santa will need you on Christmas Eve.
I can't train you, my wild reindeer.

You are my reindeer, my wild reindeer.
I'm learning to be so kind to you.
We are becoming very good friends.
Santa will be so proud of you.
