Underneath the mountain
Right against the forest fence
By Saint Agnes’ fountain.

From Pennsylvania folks are travellin’
Down to Dixie’s sunny shore
From Atlantic to Pacific
Gee the traffic is terrific!


From I’ll Be Home For Christmas

Christmas Eve will find me
Where the lovelight gleams
I’ll be home for Christmas
If only in my dreams


From In Excelsis Deo

Angels we have heard on high,
Singing sweetly through the night,
And the mountains in reply
Echoing their brave delight.
Gloria in excelsis Deo.


From Deck the Halls

Deck the halls with boughs of holly
Fa la la la la, la la la la (fa la la la la, la la la la)
Tis the season to be jolly
Fa la la la la, la la la la (fa la la la la, la la la la)


From the Holly and the Ivy

The holly and the ivy,
When they are both full grown
Of all the trees that are in the wood
The holly bears the crown


From Jolly Old Saint Nicholas

Johnny wants a pair of skates
Suzie wants a dolly
Nellie wants a story book
She thinks dolls are folly


From We Wish You A Merry Christmas

We wish you a Merry Christmas; 
We wish you a Merry Christmas; 
We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. 
Good tidings we bring to you and your kin


From Joy to the World

Joy to the world, the Lord is come
Let earth receive her King
Let every heart prepare Him room
And Heaven and nature sing
