LYRICS TO ALL SONGS
(For your BEST results and fun, try listen to the song samples while you read or SING along)

Hello Ho-Ho!

December’s here, it’s that time of year
Say hello to mittens, hats and snow
Summers gone and wintertime is on
Christmas day is on the way!
Soon everyone will say…

Hello ho-ho!
Hello ho-ho!
Hello ho-ho-ho!

The North Pole crew knows just what to do
When the elves hear those Christmas bells
Sleigh and Reindeer ready for this year
Christmas day is on the way!
Soon everyone will say…

CHORUS

After Santa Claus’ song has come and gone
You can keep that magic spirit going strong
Don’t wait a year, to spread some Christmas cheer
Make today a special day
That everyone will say…

CHORUS 2x’s

Merry Christmas!
Merry Christmas!
Merry Christmas!
Merry Christmas!
-----------------

Blizzard Buster

Whoosh goes the wind, flip on the tube
It’s a snow day! What shall I do?
I’ll call my friends and get ready to play
Hooray! Hooray! It’s a…
Blizzard buster day!

Should I build a snowman, go sledding or ski?
Go down to the pond and play hockey?
I got hit by a snowball but that’s ok
I’m so glad it’s a…
Blizzard buster day!

Snow day, snow day
Time to get out of the house and play
Snow day, snow day
It’s wet and cold but I like it that way, it’s a…
Blizzard buster day!

The sun’s going down, it’s getting late
There’s still so much to do, but wait…
My Mom is calling, “Come home”. I say, “No way!”
I don’t want to say good-bye to this…
Blizzard buster day!

Snow day, snow day
Time to get out of the house and play
Snow day, snow day
It’s wet and cold but I like it that way, it’s a…
Blizzard buster day!

There are just some things you can’t do in the summer
So you have wait for a blizzard buster

Snow day, snow day
Time to get out of the house and play
Snow day, snow day
It’s wet and cold but I like it that way, it’s a…
Blizzard buster day!
Blizzard buster day!
Blizzard buster day!

Fruitcake

Here comes that Christmas time of year
Winter, snow and 12 reindeer
Santa’s coming his toys are great
But there’s one gift that most kids hate called…
Fruitcake! (Fruitcake!)
Fruitcake! (Fruitcake!)
Fruitcake! (Fruitcake!)
Fruitcake! (Fruitcake!)

Who understands why children fear
There’s lots of stuff they like in here
Cherries, nuts and sugar bakes
With eggs and butter ‘til it makes
Fruitcake! (Fruitcake!)
Fruitcake! (Fruitcake!)
Fruitcake! (Fruitcake!)
Fruitcake! (Fruitcake!)

F-R-U-I-T-C-A-K-E
There has to be a
F-R-U-I-T-C-A-K-E
Under the tree
F-R-U-I-T-C-A-K-E
For you and me
F-R-U-I-T-C-A-K-E
Traditionally

Who understands why children fear
There’s lots of stuff they like in here
Santa’s coming his toys are great
But there’s one gift that most kids hate called…
Fruitcake! (Fruitcake!)
Fruitcake! (Fruitcake!)
Fruitcake! (Fruitcake!)
Fruitcake! (Fruitcake!)
Fruitcake!

Guardian Angels

When I’m awake or I’m fast asleep
Guardian Angels watching me
When I’m playing games or sitting quietly
Guardian Angels watching me
When I need a hug there are special friends
Waiting for me
They always know just where I am
Guardian Angels watching me
Guardian Angels watching me

And if I fall or scrape my knee
Guardian Angels watching me
Kiss the pain away quickly
Guardian Angels watching me
I feel safe because I know
They’re as close as can be
If I’m in trouble they won’t be slow
Guardian Angels watching me
Guardian Angels watching me

There are Guardian, Guardian
Guardian Angels
Guardian, Guardian
Guardian Angels watching me

I know that when I brush my teeth
Guardian Angels watching me
Every hour every week
Guardian Angels watching me
They say my name with a shining face
And make time for me
Even though this world is a busy place
Guardian Angels watching me
Guardian Angels watching me

It’s Winter In Wisconsin

It’s winter in Wisconsin
The Packers play today
On the way to Lambau Field
Cheese heads on parade
Smell the brats down Brett Favre Pass
Across to Holmgren way
It’s winter in Wisconsin
It’s winter in Green Bay

It’s winter in Wisconsin
Dust off your old snow blower
Snowmobile across the field
Deer hunting seasons over
East side to the West side
La Cross to Fon du Lac
It’s winter in Wisconsin
Wintertime is back!

It’s winter in Wisconsin
Ice fishing starts today
Let’s grab our poles and dig our holes
And go fishing on the bay
From Wausau to Door County
Milwaukee to Eau Claire
It’s winter in Wisconsin
It’s winter everywhere
It’s winter everywhere
It’s winter everywhere
It’s winter everywhere

Christmas Riddle

Here’s a musical riddle
For you to figure it out!
See if you can guess who I’m singing about
If you listen carefully
To every little clue
Maybe you can solve this Christmas riddle too!

C-H-R-I-S-T-M-A-S
R-I-D-D-L-E
Try to guess this…
C-H-R-I-S-T-M-A-S
R-I-D-D-L-E

Someone’s getting ready
To visit every town
All around the world where ever kids are found
White stuff on the rooftop
And children in their beds
Twelve of his friends pull a big magic sled

CHORUS

When you wake up in the morning
And look under your tree
You know that he’s been there waiting by the chimney
Did he have some milk and cookies?
Did the big guy share?
Before he flew away Santa laughing all the way

CHORUS

Did you find the answer?
Do you know the name?
Of someone who was not allowed near reindeer games
Until that stormy night
When Santa came to say
With your nose so bright, won’t you guide my sleigh?

CHORUS
-----------------

Jingle Hop

Put your right arm up
Put your right arm down
Put your right arm up
Don’t let it drop
It’s time to do the Jingle Hop!

Hop around (hop, hop, hop, hop)
Up and down (hop, hop, hop, hop)
Keep your right arm up don’t let it drop
While we do the Jingle Hop now….STOP!

Put your left arm up
Put your left arm down
Put your left arm up
Don’t let it drop
It’s time to do the Jingle Hop!

CHORUS (left arm)

Put your right leg up
Put your right leg down
Put your right leg up
Don’t let it drop
It’s time to do the Jingle Hop!

CHORUS (right leg)

Put your left leg up
Put your left leg down
Put your left leg up
Don’t let it drop
It’s time to do the Jingle Hop!

CHORUS (left leg)

Put your smile up
Put your smile down
Put your smile up
Don’t let it drop
It’s time to do the Jingle Hop!

CHORUS (smile)
-----------------

What is Christmas?

What is Christmas all about?
A little voice once cried out
Is it all about a big spruce tree?
With blinking lights dressed up nicely

Or can it be about new toys
Lots of gifts for girls and boys
The kind of stuff seen on TV
That makes kids shout gimmie, gimmie!

What makes this time of year so cool?
A short vacation from our school?
Or playing games out in the cold
That we will quit when we get old?

If you teach me I will learn
And share the memory when I’m grown
Of how you once explained to me
The meaning of Christmas from A to Z
The meaning of Christmas from A to Z
The meaning of Christmas from A to Z
The meaning of Christmas from A to Z

Say Good-bye (The New Year Song)

Say good-bye
In January it was cold and snowy
Say good-bye
Valentines were shared in February
Say good-bye
The month of March we were wearing green
Say good-bye
And in April we did Easter things
Say good-bye to the old and hello to the new
On New Years Day that’s what people do

Say good-bye
May brought us flowers and mothers Day
Say good-bye
School vacation in June hooray!
Say good-bye
July a birthday for the USA
Say good-bye
After August fall was on its way
Say good-bye to the old and hello to the new
On New Years Day that’s what people do

Say good-bye
Back to school when September came
Say good-bye
Halloween was October’s game
Say good-bye
We all gave thanks at a November meal
Say good-bye
Before we knew it December was here
Say good-bye to the old and hello to the new
On New Years Day that’s what people do

January
February
March
April
May
June
July
August
September
October
November
December

Say good-bye to the old and hello to the new
On New Years Day that’s what people do
Bye to the old and hello to the new
On New Years Day that’s what people, people, people do

Winter Holidays and Some Christmas Music, All Rocked Up!
I really like the traditional winter holidays and Christmas songs, and look forward to that time of year, especially for the music! But Mr. Billy puts a really fun and upbeat spin on this kind of music with FRUITCAKE. I really like fruitcake---No, I mean I really enjoy eating fruitcake! (I must be weird!) But Mister Billy's song Fruitcake is right on line for lots of folks. I love Winter in Wisconsin, being from WI, myself. It's rockin' and upbeat in the best Mr. Billy tradition! Jingle Hop hops right along, and we even get the softer side of Mister Billy with What Is Christmas?. A really nice mix of songs and a great stocking stuffer, come Christmas time!

Seona Mules

Super fun music with lots of holiday cheer!
