about

With the devastation that Hurricane Sandy brought to the East Coast, we wanted to pull together and help out in some kind of way, so Thanksgiving weekend of 2012 we got together with our friend Vince Sceno and made this Christmas record.

100% of the profits from this release will go directly to the Hurricane Sandy New Jersey Relief Fund.

Track Name: Carol of the Bells
Hark! how the bells
Sweet silver bells
All seem to say,
"Throw cares away."
Christmas is here
Bringing good cheer
To young and old
Meek and the bold

Ding, dong, ding, dong
That is their song
With joyful ring
All caroling
One seems to hear
Words of good cheer
From everywhere
Filling the air

Oh how they pound,
Raising the sound,
Over hill and dale,
Telling their tale,
Gaily they ring
While people sing
Songs of good cheer
Christmas is here
Merry, merry, merry, merry Christmas
Merry, merry, merry, merry Christmas

On, on they send
On without end
Their joyful tone
To every home
Track Name: Away in a Manger / Joy to the World
away in a manger, no crib for his bed
the little lord jesus lay down his sweet head
the stars in the sky looking down where he lay
the little lord jesus asleep in the hay.

joy to the world, 'cause the lord has come
let earth receive her king.

the cattle are lowing the poor baby wakes
but the little lord jesus, no crying he makes
i love thee lord jesus look down from the sky
and stay by my crib watching my lullaby.

joy to the world, 'cause the lord has come
let earth receive her king.

let every heart prepare him room.
(let heaven and nature sing)
joy to the world 'cause he has come.

let heaven and nature sing.
Track Name: Blue Christmas
i'll have a blue christmas with out you
i'll be so blue just thinking about you
decorations of red, on a green christmas tree
won't be the same dear, if you're not here with me.

and when those blue snowflakes start falling
that's when those blue memories start calling
you'll be doing alright with your christmas of white
but i'll have a blue christmas.

you'll be doing alright with your christmas of white
but i'll have a blue christmas.
Track Name: Happy Xmas (War is Over)
and so this is christmas
and what have you done?
another year over, and a new one just begun.

and so this is christmas
i hope you have fun
the near and the dear one, the old and the young.

a very merry christmas, and a happy new year
let's hope it's a good one
without any fear.

and so this is christmas
for weak and for strong
for rich and the poor ones, the world is so wrong.

and so happy christmas
for black and for white
for yellow and red ones, let's stop all the fights.

a very merry christmas, and a happy new year
let's hope it's a good one
with out any fear.

and so this is christmas
and what have we done?
another year over, and a new one just begun.

and so happy christmas
we hope you have fun
the near and the dear one, the old and the young.

a very merry christmas, and a happy new year
let's hope it's a good one
with out any fear.

war is over (if you want it).
Track Name: Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas
have yourself a merry little christmas
let your heart be light
from now on, our troubles will be out of sight.

have yourself a merry little christmas
make the yuletide gay
from now on, our troubles will be miles away.

here we are, as in olden days
happy golden days of your
faithful friends who are dear to us,
gather near to us, once more.

through the years, we all will be together
if the fates allow
hang a shining star upon the highest bow.

and have yourself a merry little christmas now.
