Track Name: I Wish I Was Santa Claus
I wish I was Santa Claus
I'd take all the whole year off
Except on christmas day
I'd go flyin' on my sleigh
I wish I was Santa Claus.

I'd give away all the toys my little elves make
And leave them for the children of the world
I wish I could be there with em' when they all wake
To see the happy little boys and girls.

I wish I was Santa Claus
With a belly that was big and soft
I'd go flyin' on my sleigh
Have Rudolph lead the way
I wish I was Santa Claus.

I wish I was Santa Claus
I'd take all the whole year off
Except on christmas day
Go flyin' on my sleigh
I wish I was Santa Claus.
Track Name: Christmas Eve Can Kill You
The winter's flaking snow is brushin' through the pinewood trees
I stuff my hands down deep inside my coat
I think of years ago and half remembered Christmas trees
And faces that still warm me with their glow
The cold and empty evening hangs around me like a ghost
I listen to my footsteps in the snow
The sound of one man walking through the snow can break your heart
And stopping doesn't help, so on I'll go
And Christmas eve can kill you
When you're trying to hitch a ride to anywhere

The icy air I'm breathin's all that keeps me on my feet
I feel like I've been walking all my life
A car goes runnin' by; the man don't even turn his head
Guess he's busy bein' Santa Claus tonight

The saddest part of all is knowin' if I switched with him
I'd leave him stumbling ragged by the road
I'd ride that highway to arms of my sweet family
And forget about the stranger in the cold
And Christmas eve can kill you
When you're tryin' to hitch a ride to anywhere

And as I walk I'm singing to myself 'O Silent Night'
Hopin' I can save those other souls
Oh, God forgive the man that drives right by the other man
Take pity on the stranger in the cold
Cause Christmas eve can kill you
When you're tryin' to hitch a ride to anywhere
Track Name: Christmas Morning
When you’re a kid waitin’ for christmas morning
you can’t sleep the whole night through
you just lie awake dreaming
about all the things you’re gonna do

Your little sister’s gonna wake you up
and you’ll just pretend to be asleep
you can’t let excitement show
‘cause then everybody will know
that you’ve been waiting for this all week

Christmas morning for a kid
from England to Madrid
From Texas all the way to Tokyo

Some kids pray and some kids play around
it’s both religious and cultural ground
You do what your parent’s say
you don’t know of a better way
for everybody to get feeling good the whole year round

so settle down it be alright
this is the best part of the night
when you don’t know what’s gonna happen
but everybody seems to be laughin’
waiting for that magical christmas morning light

Christmas morning for a kid
from England to Madrid
From Texas all the way to Tokyo
From Texas all the way to Tokyo
