Refrain Go, tell it on the mountain, Over the hills and everywhere Go, tell it on the mountain, That Jesus Christ is born. While shepherds kept their watching Over silent flocks by night Behold throughout the heavens There shone a holy light. Refrain The shepherds feared and trembled, When lo! above the earth, Rang out the angels chorus That hailed the Savior’s birth. Refrain Down in a lowly manger The humble Christ was born And God sent us salvation That blessèd Christmas morn. Refrain

Don't let the hair of the dog lead you straight unto your grave This eternal cold front can make you misbehave Even the snow wants someplace where it can go To grab a bit of heat; we're turning into frozen meat Baby, it's cold inside. Baby, it's cold inside. (spoken Russian followed by) Get out! Built for the weather, at least to some extent We've got our freedom in this place but the weather is the rent Cold mama, cold mama, knockin' at the door Go ahead and open; it don't matter any more Snow mama, snow mama Come in, babe. Come in, babe. Composed & performed by Theo Obrastoff ©2015 Andy's Angels Records

Tracing tears through all our years Following our prayers In our hearts, the darkness seems to grow Listening for hints of joy Forgiveness seems beyond us In our hearts, the darkest place we know Do you hear the Christmas bells ringing out across this day? Emmanuel - God Is With Us Prophets join the angels as they sing across the void Emmanuel - God Is With Us A light has come into this world That never will go out A light has come into this world That never dims and never will go out And all your debts are paid Rise anew and go your way with love All your debts are paid Rise anew and go your way with love A light has come into this world That never will go out A light has come into this world That never dims and never will go out A light has come into this world A light has come into this world A light has come into this world It never will go out

She decorates the house for Christmas Stringing lights on all the trees It’s 80 degrees I don’t know why I have no spirit It seems I haven’t got a clue (Maybe I do) This time of year once stood for something It once confirmed what I believe Am I naïve? We sent the cards out to the family I wonder if they feel the same way The same as me Don’t want to be the grownup At least for just one day I’m tired of the responsible way They don’t know how much it costs They don’t know how much has been lost Sometimes I wish I could be selfish again They never got to meet their Grandma The way she always tried and tried And then she died The joys of winter all went with her No pumpkins in the fall No snowmen here at all We throw our happiness on credit There is so much we have to pay It’ll be there ‘til May I used to not be quite this jaded Where did all the lightness go? I miss it so Don’t want to be the killjoy Fearing the bottom line Wish that I could go back in time Don’t want to be the grownup At least for just one day I’m tired of the responsible way They don’t know how much it costs They don’t know how much has been lost Sometimes I wish I could be selfish again

When you cried when you were born Where you thinking of the crown of thorns That would pierce your head when all the world was laughing Did you know from the very start Were you born with a broken heart For a world to blind to see their Savior Did you wake up in the middle of the night with dreams of how it would end Did your mother ever ask you why Why you seemed preoccupied And your hands always seemed to be shaking Did you ever have any fun Could you ever just kill the time Or was every second a painful reminder Every time you heard your dad pound the hammer down Did it make you cringe at the thought Did you ever want to run away Did you ever get down on your knees and pray Oh Father take this cup away Held tightly in your mother's arms Did you know you’d be rejected and despised

Secret Santa She could work for the CIA Maybe double for the KGB She knows who killed Marilyn Monroe And John F Kennedy I asked if I could see her face She said man don't you know That document was sealed away Many many years ago My secret Santa Works for the government I don't even know her name But she keeps bringing me presents She knows if I've been good or bad Says she doesn't need a warrant My secret Santa Works for the government Now I start thinking of All the things that she's done for me Saying hey man watch your back Keeping tabs on my family tree And even though I love her so I get this feeling that I just can't shake What if she's setting me up What if this is all a big mistake

Sometimes you think you see me Sometimes may even hear Santa’s milk and cookies Have simply disappeared I see you when you’re sleeping You lie in bed awake You thought that I would go If you were good for goodness sake You know I’m coming Especially for you Naughty is as naughty does And I’m not Santa Claus You may call me Krampus My sack’s not filled with toys I’ve room in mine For all the really bratty girls and boys That means there’s room for you too

I step into the night air of a Christmas Eve I cry out from my spirit, "You are beautiful, beautiful!" I think of everything You've ever done for me With my final breath I will sing, "Beautiful, beautiful, Lord!" Composed & performed by Theo Obrastoff ©2015 Andy's Angels Records
