From the recording Christmas Dream
Feeling all festive and holidayish, I began to get the melody and lyric for this song while getting ready for my Mother’s birthday that we were to celebrate at our house December 4th! Later on, when I had more time, I took it to the piano and banged it out!
Christmas songs on random play — tidy up and decorate
I hope Stanley brings the tree home on time
‘Cause we’re gonna celebrate tonight
Pull out the dishes holiday style — reminiscent, lost for awhile
Better get a move on — it’s already half past three
‘fore you know it seven o’clock will be here!
CHORUS: HOLIDAY PARTY TIME — MAKING SPIRITS BRIGHT
MERRY CHRISTMAS! IT’S PARTY TIME
HANG UP THE MISTLETOE — WITH THE FIRE AGLOW
CRANK UP THE MUSIC IT’S PARTY NIGHT!
Christmas comes but once a year
Deck the halls with all the cheer of iridescent silver, red and green
It’s all such a twinkle-lighted dream! Repeat chorus.
Bridge: Good friends and memories—pretend life is easy
Wishes and prophecies — out with the old, in with the new
But before that we gotta whole lot to do. . . Repeat chorus.
Tag: havin’ a holiday party—holiday party—holiday party tonight (repeat and fade)
