Everyone’s A Kid At Christmas Time

By Ron and Aurora Miller (made famous by Stevie Wonder)

All: Ev’ryone’s a kid at Christmas time, A holly, jolly kid at Christmas time. Ev’ryone from Maine to Baton Rouge got the news, Sahra: even Scrooge.

All: Ev’ryone’s a kid at Christmas time, A holly, jolly kid at Christmas time. Mistletoe is now the latest rage, And no one wants to act their age.

Olive & Avery: The older folks are playing with their trains, Chloe & Riley: Eating candy-canes, Mia & Stella: and trimmin’ trees. 

Isabelle: Some nice old guy is riding through the sky. Laura: Would you believe he’s jumping into chim-i-neys?

 

All: Whoa, Everyone’s a kid at Christmas time. A holly, jolly kid at Christmas time. Now’s the time to throw your cares away. The world is on a holiday.

Madalena & Melodie: There’s even people singing in the street. Anna & Anisa: Life is such a treat.

Emma:  And goodness knows- Noa: That same old guy, Karolina: still riding through the sky, Amina: And talking to a reindeer with a big red nose!


All: Whoa, Ev’ryone’s a kid at Christmas time. A holly, jolly kid at Christmas time. Ev’ryone from one to ninety-three, Feelin’ free, look at me!

Oh, Ev’ryone’s a kid at Christmas Time. A holly, jolly kid at Christmas time. Now’s the time to throw your cares away,

Lucy: And do the things you did  Alexa: When you were just a kid  All: The world is on a holiday.


"We all know Santa rewards good behavior and we're sure you've all been very good this year.  But hey- nobody's perfect!" 

Get Happy/Santa Claus Is Comin' To Town

Laura: Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Come you sinners gather 'round. Olive: Hallelujah! Hallelujah! All you sinners, I have found- 

Both: a land where the weary forever are free. Come you sinners, and just follow me! 

All: Forget your troubles and just get happy.  You better chase all your cares away.  Sing 'Hallelujah', come on, get happy.  Get ready for the judgment day.  The sun is shining', come on get happy.  The Lord is waiting to take your hand.  Shout 'Hallelujah', come on, get happy.  We're going to the promised land. 

We're heading' 'cross the river, wash your sins 'way in the tide. It's all so peaceful on the other side. Forget your troubles and just get happy. You better chase all your cares away.  Shout 'Hallelujah', come on, get happy. Get ready for the judgement day. 

[Laura/Anisa: hold long notes Olive/Anna/Madalena/Melodie: sing all lyrics]

Forget your troubles and just get happy.  You better chase all your cares away.  Sing 'Hallelujah', come on, get happy.  Get ready for the judgment day.  The sun is shining', come on get happy.  The Lord is waiting to take your hand.  Shout 'Hallelujah', come on, get happy.  We're going to the promised land.  

[All sing as before]

We're headin' 'cross the river, wash your sins 'way in the tide.  It's all so peaceful on the other side. Forget your troubles and just get happy.  You better chase all your cares away.  Shout 'Hallelujah', come on, get happy, 

Get ready... Get ready... Get ready...

Santa Claus is comin' to town, oh yeah, Santa Claus is coming' to town.  You better watch out, you better not cry, Better not pout, I'm tellin' you why:

Santa Claus is Comin' To Town, oh yeah, Santa Claus Is Comin' To Town.  Santa Claus Is Comin' To Town.  

He's making a list and checking it twice, gonna find out who's naughty and nice. 

Santa Claus Is Comin' To Town, oh yeah, Santa Claus Is Comin' To Town.  Santa Claus Is Comin' To Town.

He sees you when he's sleepin'; He knows when you're awake.  He knows if you've been bad or good, so be good for goodness sake.

You better watch out, you better not cry, Better not pout, I'm tellin' you why: 

Santa Claus Is Comin' To Town, oh yeah, Santa Claus Is Comin' To Town.  Santa Claus Is Comin' To Town.

Anna: With little tin horns and little toy drums Anisa: Rooty toot toots and rummy tum tums. 

Madalena: Curly head dolls that cuddle and coo Melodie: Elephants, boats, and kiddy cars too.

All: Santa Claus Is Comin' To Town, oh yeah, Santa Claus Is Comin' To Town. 

Santa Claus Is Comin' - Come on, Get Happy! - To Town!

Avery: "You know who this song really reminds me of?"

Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer

Avery: You know Dasher and Dancer and Prancer and Vixen, Comet and Cupid and Donner and Blitzen,

Avery/Alexa/Isabelle/Lucybut do you recall the most *beautiful* reindeer of all? 

Rudolph, the red-nosed reindeer had a very shiny nose, and if you ever saw it, you would even say it glows.  All of the other reindeer used to laugh and call him names. They never let poor Rudolph join in any reindeer games.  Then one foggy Christmas Eve, Santa came to say, [Josh: "Rudolph, with your nose so bright, won't you guide my sleigh tonight?"]

Then how the reindeer loved him as they shouted out with glee: "Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer, you'll go down in history!"

Oh, Rudolph, no matter what you do, no matter what they say, let your light shine on, you can lead the way! Oh, Rudolph. 


Emma: "Do you know the best part about the holidays?" Noa: "yeah! the presents!" Amina: "There used to be this boy who would get me all these presents... and then one day, he just stopped." Karolina: "Sometimes you don't appreciate a good thing till it's gone."  

Karolina: When I had you to myself, I didn't want you around.  Those pretty faces always made you stand out in a crowd. Noa: Then someone picked you from the bunch.  One glance was all it took.  Now it's much too late for me All: to take a second look. 

Oh baby, give me one more chance (show you that I love you). Won't you please let me back in your heart? 

Oh darlin', I was blind to let you go (let you go baby) but now since I see you in her arms, I want you back. I want you back.  I want you back.  I want you back.

Amina: Tryin' to live without your love is one long sleepless night. Let me show you boy, that I know wrong from right.

Emma: Ev'ry street you walk on I leave tear stains on the ground. Following the boy All: I didn't even want around. 

Oh baby, give me one more chance (show you that I love you). Won't you please let me back in your heart?

Oh darlin', I was blind to let you go (let you go baby) but now since I see you in her arms...

A boo boo boo boo (All I want) A boo boo boo boo (All I need) A boo boo boo boo (All I want) A boo boo boo boo (All I need)

Oh baby, give me one more chance (show you that I love you baby) Baby (baby) Baby (baby) 

I want you back.  I want you back.  I want you back.  I want you back.  

Oh darlin', I was blind to let you go (let you go baby) but now since I see you in her arms, 

I want you back.  I want you back.  I want you back.  I want you back...'cause...

Santa Baby

lyrics by Whitney

Mister Claus, we had a good thing goin'. So please come back and keep the presents flowin'! 

Santa Baby, just slip an iPad under the tree, for me, been an awful good girl, Santa Baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight.

Santa Baby, a Harry Potter box set that's signed.  You'll find J.K. Rowling won't mind, Santa Baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight. 

Think of how great it will be opening the presents that you got for me.  I appreciate your love, and even more your generosity! 

Santa Baby, another thing that would do the trick, a click with an amazon card, Santa Baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight.

Santa Baby, some front row seats to see Taylor Swift, that gift you could share with me, too.  Santa Honey, so hurry down the chimney tonight.

Santa Cutie, we should rent a sleek limo bus for us; go to parties in style. Santa Cutie, and hurry down the chimney tonight. 

Come and spend some time with me at Rockefeller Center 'round the Christmas tree.  It would be a dream come true- just you and me and N.Y.C.! 

Santa Baby, I really hope that you will return.  I've learned there's no one like you- that's fact! Santa Baby, so hurry-- I want you back! 

What Christmas Means To Me Finale

Candles burnin' low, lots of mistletoe, lots of snow and ice, everywhere we go.  Choirs singing carols right outside my door. All these things and more (all these things and more) that's what Christmas means to me, my love (that's what Christmas means to me, my love).  Yeah, and you know what I mean. 

I see your smiling face like I never seen before.  Even though I love you madly, it seems I love you more.  The little cards you'll give me will touch my heart for sure.  All these things and more (all these things and more) that's what Christmas means to me, my love (that's what Christmas means to me, my love). 

I feel like running wild, as anxious as a little child, to greet you 'neath the mistletoe, kiss you once and then some more.  And wish you a Merry Christmas, baby. And such happiness in the coming year, happiness in the coming year!

Let's deck the halls with holly, sing sweet Silent Night.  Fill a tree with angel hair and pretty, pretty lights.  Go to sleep and wake up just before daylight. All these things and more (all these things and more) that's what Christmas means to me, my love (that's what Christmas means to me, my love). 

Candles burning low, lots of ice and snow, Christmas bells are ringing, Christmas choirs singing. That's what Christmas means to me.  That's what Christmas means to me. 

Oh, everyone's a kid at Christmas time.  A holly, jolly kid at Christmas time.  Now's the time to throw your cares away, the world is on a holiday.  There's even people singing in the street.  Life is such a treat. And goodness knows, that same old guy, still riding through the sky and talking to a reindeer with a big red nose. Oh everyone's a kid at Christmas time.  A holly, jolly kid at Christmas time.  Everyone from one to ninety-three feeling free.  Look at me! 

Oh everyone's a kid at Christmas time. A holly, jolly kid at Christmas time.  Now's the time to throw your cares away and do the things you did when you were just a kid- The world is on a holiday! 

 

"We hope you've enjoyed the show!"  "We have one more tune for you --" "Sing, Sing, Sing!"  "Hit it, Josh!"

Sing Sing Sing

Sing, sing, sing, sing all you got to do is sing.  Girls and boys make a noise, just try singing with a swing.  Sing, sing, sing, sing, everybody likes to sing.  Summer, Fall, Winter, Spring - these are all good times to sing!  When the music comes around, just join in with your own sound.  Here's the thing you need to know- Just make it all up as you go! Sing, sing, sing, sing, all you got to do is sing.  Shakespeare said, "the song's the thing" when you sing it with a swing!
