My Favorite Christmas Song: 2016

4

 

My favorite Christmas song of late was never intended to be a Christmas song- it just became one because some say, it mentions Christmas.

I think there is more to it then that- it’s asking for peace and hope and the desire to be with the people  you love.

That sounds like a lot of other Christmas songs – but to me, it’s one of the best and I do love to sing it, I love to listen to it most of all I  feel it in my ones.

Stop the Cavalry

Jona Lewie

Hey, Mr. Churchill comes over here
To say we’re doing splendidly
But it’s very cold out here in the snow,
Marching to win from the enemy
Oh I say it’s tough, I have had enough
Can you stop the cavalry?

I have had to fight, almost every night
Down throughout these centuries
That is when I say, oh yes yet again
Can you stop the cavalry?
Mary Bradley waits at home
In the nuclear fall-out zone
Wish I could be dancing now
In the arms of the girl I love

(Dub a dub a dumb dumb)
(Dub a dub dubadum dubadum dub a dub dubadum)

Wish I was at home for Christmas

Bang! That’s another bomb on another town
While Luzar and Jim have tea
If I get home, live to tell the tale
I’ll run for all presidencies
If I get elected I’ll stop, I will stop the cavalry

(Dub a dub a dumb dumb)
(Dub a dub dubadum dubadum dub a dub dubadum)

Wish I was at home for Christmas

Wish I could be dancing now
In the arms of the girl I love
Mary Bradley waits at home
She has been waiting two years long
Wish I was at home for Christmas

AND THE #1 CHRISTMAS HOLIDAY SONG AT MY ENDURING BONES IS

THE BOAR’S HEAD CAROL!

The boar’s head in hand bear I
Bedecked with bay and rosemary;
I pray you my masters be merry,
Quot estis in convivio [as many as are at the feast].

Chorus
Caput apri defero [I bring in the boar’s head]
Reddens laudes Domino [Giving thanks to the lord]
Caput apri defero
Reddens laudes Domino
The boar’s head as I understand
Is the rarest dish in all the land,
Which thus bedecked with a gay garland,
Let us servire cantico [serve it with a song].

Chorus

Our steward hath provided this
In honour of the King of bliss,
Which on this day to be served is
In Reginensis atrio [In Queen’s Hall].
