Track Name: Psycho Santa
I saw him flying with a sleigh full of sacks
They're full of clothes, toys, candy, knick-knacks
The kids can't sleep 'cause their minds conspire
About the things they're about to acquire

Psycho St. Nick
qui est ce mec
ho ho ho ho ho ho ho ho ho better

fly fly fly fly fly fly fly away Ho ho ho hoooooooo yeah yeah yeah

You start a christmas list you can't even finish it.
You ask for a lot, but you don't deserve anything.
When I check my list, your fate is sealed.
Do something wrong, and I may abstain.

Track Name: Not Even A Mouse
Twas the night before Christmas baby
When all through the house not a creature
Sugar plums danced in their heads
Not even a mouse

O come ye faithful and triumphant
O come ye all to Bethlehem
When what to wondering eyes appear
Not even a mouse

I saw three ships come sailin' in; on Christmas Day on Christmas Day
Christmas Day in the morning
Joy to earth the savior reigns
Fields and floods, rocks, hills, and plains
Strike the harp join the chorus

Said the night wind to little lamb
Ringing through the sky shepherd boy
Said the king to people everywhere
Not even a mouse

Peace on earth good will to men; let every heart prepare him room
Guide us thy perfect light
Follow me in merry measure
While I tell of Yule tide treasure
Star with beauty bright

Not even a mouse

God rest you merry gentlemen
Pray for peace for us everywhere
He was born on Christmas Day
Not even a mouse

It's Christmas time in Hollis Queens; Mom's cooking those collard greens
God - an illin' reindeer
Rhymes so loud and proud to hear it
Christmas time we got the spirit
And a happy new year
Track Name: And He Was
And snow was falling in the grass
And he could hear the children playing
And he could see the nearby playground
He’s making sure he is freezing

See the smiles as the children play
Now he’s starting to rise
Take a minute to come to life and he opens up his eyes

CHORUS

The sun was rising he
Right there melting and he was
The snow was thawing he was
Liquefying and he was – and he was

And he was drifting through the backyard
And he was taking off his scarf
And he was moving very slowly
Sinking down into the Earth

Dissolving into the atmosphere and he’s, nothing more than a hat
Button eyes and a corn cob pipe, and he’s now mud in the yard

The sun was rising he
Right there melting and he was
The snow was thawing he was
Liquefying and he was – and he was
And he was mad about it
No doubt about it
The kids aren’t sure about what they’ve done
No time to think about talking snowmen
No time to think about what they’ve done and he was

HEY HEY HEY HEY HEY HEY

And he was made out of snow
And he came to life one day
There was magic in that silk hat
They placed on top of Frosty’s snow head

HEY HEY HEY HEY HEY HEY…

The sun was rising he
Right there melting and he was
The snow was thawing he was
Liquefying and he was – and he was
Joining the world of
Missing Snowmen and he was
Missing the skin to
Keep from melting and he was

And he was…
Track Name: Uh-Oh Santa Comes To Town
Wait, wait for the 12 month to come
Wake up, wake up and make your list
Believe, believe in Mistletoe
Clause Clause Clause Clause is simple as 1-2-3 (being good?) (Red and Green?)

He’s a know-it-all, he’s the smartest man around
That's right, you be good when Clause comes to town
Here come a reindeer, here come a Sleigh
If you were really good, you'd know what to do
When I say...

Wake up, Jump out, Scream out, Run down,
Get downstairs
Its Christmas morning and there’s no
school today
I'd rather be with my
Family
we open our presents, we feel the love

I've been to Macys, I've been to the mall
I've met the cashiers that you see interviewed on the news
Here come a reindeer, here come a sleigh
If you were really good you'd know what to do when I say
Decorations getting out of control, Carolers all around
People strapping trees to their cars when Clause has come to town

Where, where is my G.I. Joe?
Why...does this, have to end?
Believe, I believe in Mistletoe
Clause, Clause Clause Clause is simple as 1-2-3

Here come some cookies, here come some milk
If you were really good, you'd know what to do when I say
Why am I going out of my head, when December rolls around?
The answer is obvious, Clause has come to town!
Track Name: Wild Wild Ride
I'm wearing a fleece parka
I ride a wood toboggan
It's bruising my fanny
Slow down I can't help you

Down this mountaintop oh no!
It's a wild wild ride
I got some bruises to show you Oh no!
What a wild wild ride
Here comes the snow patrol thank God!
They come to save my life
You know this is hard to control
I know!
It's a wild wild ride

I was going for the record
You're laughing my face is checkered
That fence didn't feel good
It'll take some time to mend those sores

Check out lubrication-man oh no!
He used some wild wild stuff
He's aiming for that tree down range oh no!
He's got a wild wild ride
breaking arm then he lays on the ground oh no!
He's going to be alright!
I know that he didn't die yet Oh no!
He must have nine, nine lives

He's the man!
He don't use a break
No control!
You let 'er rip anytime you like

It's like riding on Pineneedles
This thing fell apart, it's horrific

Shooting across the interstate watch out!
It's a wild wild ride
Leaning left, leaning right
Watch out!
It's a wild wild ride
When I go, Man I go, yeah I go
Here I go
On this wild wild ride
I got a big running start oh yeah! For this wild wild ride
I'm traveling at the speed of light
Look out!
It's a wild wild ride
I've gone so far, I've gone so fast
Oh yeah
Wild wild ride
You know that's the way I like it
Ho ho!
This wild wild wild ride!
