ONE NIGHT A YEAR (as recorded by Monique Creber) Once again the windows, shine with pretty lights Once again our loved ones, gather at our sites Busy crowds of strangers greet each other with a smile There’s Christmas in the eyes of every child Once again the presents are resting by the tree Once again we worship the one who came for you and me I hear choirs of voices as they’re singing out his name Again we tell the story of how the Christ child came One night a year, we believe in peace on earth One night a year, we praise our Savior’s birth I wish every night the whole year through could be like Christmas Eve When love’s pure light is shining everywhere One night a year Once again around the world, heads are bowed in prayer Once again the promise of peace is in the air But soon will come the morning and the feeling will be past And I can’t help but wonder why that feeling only lasts One night a year, we believe in peace on earth One night a year, we praise our Savior’s birth I wish every night the whole year through could be like Christmas Eve When love’s pure light is shining everywhere One night a year, we believe in peace on earth One night a year, we praise our Savior’s birth I wish every night the whole year thru could be like Christmas Eve When love’s pure light is shining everywhere One night a year One night a year

SOMEDAY AT CHRISTMAS (as recorded by Michelle Creber) Someday at Christmas men won’t be boys Playing with bombs like kids play with toys One warm December our hearts will see A world where men are free Someday at Christmas there’ll be no wars When we have learned what Christmas is for When we have found what life’s really worth There’ll be peace on earth Someday all our dreams will come to be Someday in a world where men are free Maybe not in time for you and me But someday at Christmas time Someday at Christmas we’ll see a land No hungry children, no empty hand One happy moment people will share A world where people care (woah) Someday at Christmas there’ll be no tears All men are equal and no men have fears One shining moment, my heart ran away From a world today Someday all our dreams will come to be Someday in a world where men are free Maybe not in time for you and me But someday at Christmas time (yeah) Someday at Christmas men will not fail Hate will be gone and love will prevail Someday in a new world that we can start With hope in every heart (Someday all our dreams will come to be) Someday at Christmas (Someday in a world where men are free) Men will be free Maybe not in time for you and me But someday at Christmas time Someday at Christmas time

THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS (as recorded by Monique & Michelle Creber) ‘Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse The children were nestled, all snug in their beds While visions of sugar plums, danced in their heads Now Dasher, now Dancer, now Prancer and Vixen On Comet, on Cupid, on Donner and Blitzen To the top of the porch, to the top of the wall Now dash away, dash away, dash away all But I heard him exclaim, ere he drove out of sight Happy Christmas to all and to all a good night Children carry through the streets, a brightly painted star Angels gather round the hearth, strumming on guitars And men of great renown and faith say prayers on boulevards It’s the night before Christmas Cause you don’t have to be an angel to sing harmony You don’t have to be a child to love the mystery And you don’t have to be a wise man on bended knee The heart of this Christmas is in you and me The night before Christmas The night before Christmas If your heart’s been longing, you’ve been afraid to try Sorrow’s kept you company and the dance has passed you by I’ll lift you up and blaze with you across the moonlit sky On the night before Christmas ‘Cause you don’t have to be an angel to sing harmony You don’t have to be a child to love the mystery And you don’t have to be a wise man on bended knee The heart of this Christmas is in you and me The heart of this Christmas is in you and me The night before Christmas The night before Christmas ‘Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house (the night before Christmas) Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse (the night before Christmas) The stockings were hung by the chimney with care (the night before Christmas) In hopes that Saint Nicholas soon would be there (the night before Christmas) The children were nestled, all snug in their beds (the night before Christmas) While visions of sugar plums, danced in their heads (the night before Christmas)

ROCKIN’ CHRISTMAS MEDLEY (as recorded by Michelle Creber & Mic the Microphone) Jingle bell, jingle bell, jingle bell rock Jingle bells swing and jingle bells ring Snowin’ and blowin’ up bushels of fun Now the jingle hop has begun Jingle bell, jingle bell, jingle bell rock Jingle bells chime in jingle bell time Dancin’ and prancin’ in jingle bell square In the frosty air What a bright time, it’s the right time To rock the night away Jingle bell time, is a swell time To go glidin’ in a one-horse sleigh Giddy-ap, jingle horse, pick up your feet Jingle around the clock Mix and mingle in a jinglin’ beat That’s the jingle bell rock Twas the night before Christmas and I couldn't miss it I knew Santa Clause was deckin' halls, gettin' right down to business And the kids, sound asleep, had written up all their wishlists To hear his sleigh a-comin' and rumblin' 'round on Christmas Day. As they say, it was quiet, nothin' was movin' through my house I was enthused to be snoozin'; Sugar Plum Fairies about I felt the roof shake like an earthquake, what on earth could make, someone stir and shake Little did I know that Saint Nick has a guest and he wasn't here to give, but take I crept down stairs and what I saw made me shudder Wasn't Saint Claus, but another, I got my father and mother And tried to nudge them awake but they just nodded and muttered "You're fine dear. If you're scared, then just crawl under the covers." I felt my heart racin', started pacin' in the halls And tried to recall who or what is was that I saw Saint Nick usin' the front door? No, through the chimney he falls Or he came here for somethin' else... *GASP* to rob Santa Claus? I couldn't sit down or stand around with some Grinch-like dude makin' not a sound Gotta choose now or let every little kid wake up and lose... No, now I'm gonna do them proud It's time to strap up, it's go time, Winter Wrap Up If gifts he's gonna snatch up, then a gift he'll get when he's trapped up I'll be like Rambo with Nerf guns at the ready I'm gonna pop shots, perp best run before it gets heavy I've got my arsenal set, you know I'm checkin' it twice It's time to see if mister thief is feelin' naughty or nice Jingle bell, jingle bell, jingle bell rock Jingle bells swing and jingle bells ring Snowin’ and blowin’ up bushels of fun Now the jingle hop has begun Jingle bell, jingle bell, jingle bell rock Jingle bells chime in jingle bell time Dancin’ and prancin’ in jingle bell square In the frosty air What a… I knew the time was now, I had to go strike Amidst the night lights, I took aim, had the fake in my sights and And as he moved, I struck and gave him a fright "You’re not robbin’ Santa this time!" I yelled with all of my might And as I looked down upon him and got my targets locked on him I took the first pop, walkin' as I pegged that appaulin' Imposter. He tried to run but I knocked him down and jumped on him Then I heard my name called and I paused looked around for what's callin' And when I looked up, I was shook up, thought the perp I caught had worst luck But the hurt shmuck that I ambushed was the real Big Man and it sure sucked To be sittin' in the hot seat with Santa lookin' not pleased With bag in hand as he tried stand, leavin' this little kid feelin' not eased And I had to ask: "Man, is this some kinda trick? What's up, Nick? Why'd you use the door? That isn't your schtick!" And as I pointed and looked around somethin' finally clicked He didn't come through our chimney because it doesn't exist Oh. Uhh, ‘tis the season for forgiveness, right? Umm, I’m still on the nice list right?
