 Lyrics

Christmas Time in the City (Letourneau)
Drive in from the country
to see all the pretty lights
There's so many people in the city
And oh so many things to see

(Chorus)
Drove back to the city
It's something everyone should see
Maybe it's just meant to be
'cause it's Christmas time ... In the city


Went down to the grocery store
Everyone wearin' their reindeer hats
Guess that means it's okay to be
And spread some cheer for all to see

(Chorus)

Was invited to a party
We all had a good time
Met some new friends, found some old friends
Ya know we really had a good time

(Chorus)

Just can't wait 'til Christmas morning
To see what's under the tree
Feels just like it used to be
This time it's made for just you and me

(Chorus x2)


Christmas is Almost Here (Letourneau)
I need a Christmas vacation
'Cause I've worked all year round
There was a time not so long ago
When music filled the air

Got no time for negative thoughts
I've walked a... a thousand miles
Gotta make my way, my way back home
Back home to my kind

(Chorus)
Christmas is almost here
   Go out and spread some cheer
It ain't the way it used to be
Christmas comes but once a year


Friends near and far
Drink to your heart's desire
Give honour to the holy night
And keep on thru ’til Christmas night

(Chorus x 3)


Special Time of Year (Letourneau)
Got a beat up truck
Spent some time listening to the radio
Got a one way ticket
A one way ticket to the real big show

(Chorus)
Waitin' for my time
Bettin' on the line
Now put down that shovel and
Stop and wave goodbye


Got too much on the go
Ain't no use in turning back now
No matter what they say
I'll just keep on working' on my dreams

Got my mind on my home
Drivin' through the snow
Got my radio on high
Not a moment... a moment to spare
   
(Chorus)
                             
Got some time off work
Gonna sleep in ... 'til noon
Got some good ol' friends who are
Gonna be droppin’ on by

It's that special time of year
When everyone is near
Wishin' it could be here
All through the year

(Chorus)

O Holy Night (Public Domain)

The Christmas Tree (Letourneau)
It's a nice day for a ride
Got everything in the car
Remembered all the details

Even wrote down the directions
We travelled outside the city
To the call, "Are we there yet?"

In the distance we can see
A special place for me
All the cars are parked in one spot

As we head towards the gate
Eagerly awaiting our turn
Horse drawn carriage take you away

The early winter chill fills the air
As we ready our quest
We're here together as family
To retrieve our centrepiece

In the distance we can see
A little hope to be
Through the path, more than just hope

As we come down to a clearing
We can tell
It's our Christmas Tree

The early winter chill fills the air
As we ready our quest
We're here together as family
To retrieve our centrepiece

The early winter chill fills the air
As we ready our quest
We're here together as family
To retrieve our centrepiece


At Christmas Time (Letourneau)
On a cold and windy night
Warm feeling came over me
Got this feeling I can’t resist
Can’t fight this mystery

On such a dark and distant night
Watch the world stand still
As we discover it’s our turn
To make this alright

(Chorus)
We’ve waited all year ‘round
For this gathering to happen
and would you be mine
At Christmas time


On a snowy December night
You can still see a light
It lights the way back home
To my favourite time of year

(Chorus)

We’ve waited all year ‘round
For this gathering to happen
And would you be mine
At Christmas time


It’s The Eve (Letourneau, Judy & Rob)
Well it's Christmas Eve and I'm waiting to see
What Santa Clause is gonna bring to me

(Chorus)
Good night, Good night, Good night...


Went to midnight mass and on the way home
‘Bout a quarter to one well it started to snow

(Chorus)

Got all my presents bought
And wrapped under the tree

(Chorus)

The turkey's in the oven
And the family is comin’

(Chorus)

To all that are here, we wish you good cheer
Have a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

(Chorus x 2)
