Track Name: Christmas Is Love (2016)
It's not just one thing
It's not just one gift
It's not just one smile
Or a mistletoe kiss

It ain't church once a year
So you can sing your favorite hymn
It's not just some birthday
Or the month we're in

The older I get the less I need
And the things I want can't fit under a tree
If Christmas is love then wrap it up neat
And give it to me everyday, everyday

Christmas is love
Christmas is love
Christmas is love
And I want Christmas everyday

It's not just one card
Or a visit from a child
It's bot one conversation
to the number you just dialed

It's not drink with old friend
Or some fancy meal
A yearly get together
Where we hare how we feel

Boxes and bows just get tossed aside
The only things that last are memories of those times
If Christmas is love then wrap it up neat
And give it to me everyday, everyday

Christmas is love
Christmas is love
Christmas is love
And I want Christmas everyday

Noel - Noel - Noel

Spread your love every day
Just like it was Christmas!
Track Name: Welcome Home (2015)
For those wanderers and vagabonds
The table's been set
In hopes that you'll soon be here

We've set out the lights
On the path to our door
For those who might share in our cheer

We spent the past year
Running here and there
Gathering worries like stones and splinters

Now we lighten our load
Sing some holiday songs
As we do each and every winter

In this season of hope
This season of love
It's the season we gather round our own
Call it Christmas or whatever your compass may choose
It's the season we find our way home

You don't need a reason
To visit or call
We'll gladly welcome you in

There's always plenty
If not we'll make more
Let the season of giving begin

The road for some
Is a long one
It takes years for their journey to end

There's wood on our fire
So come in from the cold
We've always got room for a friend

In this season of hope
This season of love
It's the season we gather round our own
Call it Christmas or whatever your compass may choose
It's the season we find our way home

Welcome home
Welcome home my dear
Welcome home
Welcome home

Welcome home
Welcome home my dear
In this season of love
Welcome home
Track Name: I Fell In Love with the Radio City Rockettes (2014)
When I was a boy we headed down to New York City
To see Santa and a Christmas show
Me and my folks would sit in the balcony
Basking in the holiday glow

Then the band started crankin' like a music box
Little elves runnin' round in knee-high socks
And then girls came on to dance
Like Mrs. Clause in heels and hot pants

Now I was only five
But when I caught St. Nick's eye
I knew we were both starin' at those dancer's thighs

I fell in love love love
Love love love
I fell in love
With the Radio City Rockettes

I'm mesmerized and hypnotized
By the synchronicity of their kicks
I'm jingle belled and overwhelmed
Cause I'm diggin' these Christmas chicks

Now I go back every year to see the same old show
Just like I did when I was naive
The girls look the same standing five foot six
Those legs make me want to believe

Santa's on stage just takin' it in
Ho ho ho he's a gironi' a grin
Cause he's got the best view
On all of Sixth Avenue

Now whenever I see a chorus kick line
I get that warm feelin' of Christmas time

I fall in love love love
Love love love
I fall in love with the Radio City Rockettes
I fall in love
With the Radio City Rockettes

Chestnuts roasting on an open fire
Track Name: Christmas With You (2013)
Christmas With You

The snow’s fallin’ down like angels tears
On a winter’s night like the one’s we shared for so many years
But now you’ve gone so far, so far away from me
And this time of year just ain’t the same as it used to be

I’ll light the candles and place them in my windows
Like a star for the Kings they’ll help you find your way back home
And I’ll think of moments lost
Like our breath when it turns to frost

I’m closing up my presents with ribbons and rue
And I dream about spending Christmas with you

I keep our old traditions close to my heart
I still trim the tree, light a fire, even though we’re apart
I pour a glass of wine and toast some cheer
And somehow, I seem to muddle through, even though you’re not here

I’ve written out my last card and put them all in the mail
I’m not sure if the one I wrote to you will ever find your door
I wait for one last kiss
Under the mistletoe I make a wish

I sing a few notes of a carol we both knew
And I dream about spending Christmas with you
Track Name: Dime Store Santa (2012)
Well the kids that come and see me
Are from the other side of town
Their mom and dad can't afford the toys
On the lists they've written down

And they sit on my lap and whisper
Just like I was the real thing
They're waiting round for Christmas day
To see what I will bring

But I'm just a Dime Store Santa
A rented suit and shabby beard
Five and dime merchandise
Is all we carry here

But if you can't afford Macy's
And Daddy's lost his job
Come on over to see me
Cause I'm your Dime Store Santy Clause

I ain't got no reindeer
Tied up to a sled
I ain't delivering packages
Christmas eve I'll be in bed

But I'm here til Sunday
If you want to sit on St. Nicks knee
You can say hello to Mrs. Clause
She's cashier number three

I'm just a Dime Store Santa
A rented suit and shabby beard
Five and dime merchandise
Is all we carry here

But if you can't afford Macy's
And Daddy's lost his job
Come on over to see me
Cause I'm your Dime Store Santy Clause
Track Name: Christmas Time (2011)
[Verse]
At home with the family
Hiding presents underneath the tree
Ain't no place I'd rather be
At Christmas time

Got a bunch of songs to sing
The old carols, a few new things
Can't wait to see what Santa brings
At Christmas time

[Chorus]
Hey
It's Christmas time
Hey
It's Christmas time
Peace on Earth good to men
Sharing love with family and friends
I hope this feeling never ends
At Christmas time

[Bridge]
The snow is falling gently
On this peaceful silent night
I pour you another glass of wine
Drink a toast to the season
As we sit in the firelight
Nothing could be better
Nothing could be better than Christmas Time

[Verse]
Kids are waiting quiet as mice
Didn't need to ask them twice
If they've been naughty or nice
At Christmas time

Unwrap another box of cheer
Throw the ribbons over here
Mistletoe kisses suddenly appear
At Christmas time

[Chorus]
Hey
It's Christmas time
Hey
It's Christmas time
Peace on Earth good to men
Sharing love with family and friends
I hope this feeling never ends
At Christmas time

[Tag]
Hey
It's Christmas time
Hey
It's Christmas time

Jingle Bells...
