Santa If You're Listening How the holidays have changed Each year more of their meaning fades They sneak up on us like a wave That washes out to sea Here I am on Christmas Eve With so fewer gifts to give Been trying to make ends meet these days There's just no easy way Santa if you're listening Can you find me work I lost my job back in the Spring And I feel I've lost my worth I can stretch a dollar But it don't cover much Santa if you hear me Could you get me through this month Now I am not a lazy man Answered every want ad I'm not afraid to use my hands Even for low wage You see I've got a family A wife and kids, and a dog to feed They're everything and more to me I'd give them anything Santa if you're listening Can you find me work Lost my job back in the spring Now I feel I've lost my worth It's hard not to worry And to keep my spirits up Oh Santa if you hear me Could you get me through this month Wish I could fill these stockings With nothing else but love Cause I have a wealthy pockets full And I would give more than enough How the holidays have changed Each year more of the meaning fades I hope it becomes clear again At Christmas time next year
As We Count (On New Year's Eve) This is the final minute Before the year runs out May it take no good with it And leave behind our peace and health And as we bide this moment All of our dreams abound I wish for doors that open And raise a glass as we count 10, 9, 8, 7, 6 The time piece ticks And as we pass each second Watching the ball come down I hope that love will beckon To every heart and spread around. As we recite the numbers Shouting among the crowd I pray the trials that cumber Fall away as we count 5, 4 with a loud roar We start to cheer 3, 2, 1 I'm counting on A Happy New Year!
