    I like the version of "Little Drummer Boy" that is done by Bing Crosby and David Bowie. As for silly song, "I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas".

    i love all the songs mentioned, except i've never heard the "hippo" song before. :holly3:

    i also love the song "chestnuts roasting on an open fire". i love singing that song the most. :melody: see website: caroling corner

    chestnuts roasting on an open fire
    jack frost nipping at your nose
    yuletide carols being sung by a choir
    and folks dressed up like eskimos
    everybody knows a turkey and some mistletoe
    help to make the season bright
    tiny tots with their eyes all aglow
    will find it hard to sleep tonight

    they know that santa's on his way
    he's bringing lots of toys and goodies on his sleigh
    and every mother's child is gonna spy
    to see if reindeer really know how to fly

    and so i'm offering this simple phrase
    to kids from one to ninety-two
    although it's been said many times, many ways
    merry chrismas to you

    and so i'm offering this simple phrase

    merry chrismas to you

    I love "what child is this". My favorite silly song is "ding-a-ling the Christmas bell".

    Favorite serious christmas song: Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas

    Silly songs: "Chipmunks roasting over an open fire, steak sauce dripping out their nose..." Sung to tune of Silver Bells....

    "Walking round in women's underwear" to the tune of Winter Wonderland
    Sorry if I ruined those songs for anybody!

    tencat....nuttin' wrong with being silly with music. music is fun, and has an individual meaning to everyone. whatever gets a laugh as long as it's kept clean and not dishonoring anyone or god...is okay by me. now...this is just my own personal take on making silly music out of nonsilly music...so don't nobody go get all freaky deaky about it.

    adeste fideles

    adeste fideles
    laeti triumphantes
    venite, venite in bethlehem
    natum videte
    regem angelorum
    venite adoremus
    dominum
    cantet nunc io
    chorus angelorum
    cantet nunc aula caelestium
    gloria, gloria
    in excelsis deo
    venite adoremus
    dominum
    ergo qui natus
    die hodierna
    jesu, tibi sit gloria
    patris aeterni
    verbum caro factus
    venite adoremus
    dominum

    i sent it off and just said this
    i know exactly what i want this year
    santa, can you hear me ?

    i want someone to love me, someone to hold
    maybe, maybe
    be all my own in a big red bow
    santa, can you hear me ?

    i have been so good this year
    and all i want is one thing
    tell me my true love is here
    he's all i want just for me underneath my christmas tree
    i'll be waiting here
    santa that's my only wish this year.

    cause i heard that your coming to town
    santa, can you hear me ?

    i really hope your on your way
    with something special for me in your sleigh
    ooh please make my wish come true
    santa, can you hear me ?


    i want my baby, baby
    i want someone to love me, someone to hold
    maybe, maybe
    we'll be all alone under the mistle toe
    santa, can you hear me ?

    i have been so good this year
    and all i want is one thing
    tell me my true love is here

    The Michael Crawford version of O Holy Night
    The Manhien Steamroller version of Silent Night

    But my #1 Favorite Christmas Song of all time is "Merry Christmas Darling" by the Carpenters.

    Cheerfuldoer,

    Turn on your speakers when you go to this site:

    http://www.minibite.com/christmas/hippo.htm

    It not only gives you the lyrics, but plays the song.:icon_lol:
