Whole Lotta Cleanin’ Goin’ On! -- (4A, 5Del, 5Deg, 5K, 5G, 5M, 5R)

Well, there’s a whole lotta cleanin’, a whole lotta cleanin’ goin’ on.
Yes, there’s a whole lotta cleanin’, a whole lotta cleanin’ goin’ on.
But it sure goes faster when you’re singin’ a song.

Well, there’s a whole lotta cleanin’, a whole lotta cleanin’ goin’ on.
Yes, there’s a whole lotta cleanin’, a whole lotta cleanin’ goin’ on.
But it sure goes faster when you’re singin’ a song.

Dust, sweep, wax, wipe.  (Soak, mop, scrub, swipe.)
Wash, brush, cleanse, scrape (Vacuum, disinfect, shine, shake.)
Sponge, shampoo, scour, rinse.  (Polish, tidy up) LOOK IT’S A CINCH!

Well, there’s a whole lotta cleanin’, a whole lotta cleanin’ goin’ on.
Yes, there’s a whole lotta cleanin’, a whole lotta cleanin’ goin’ on.
But it sure goes faster,
Oo-----  bop, bow!
Yes, it sure goes faster, when you’re singin’ a song!

Whole Lotta Cleanin’ Goin’ On!  -- (4G, 6C, 6F, 6M, 6W, 6W/Mc)

Well, there’s a whole lotta cleanin’, a whole lotta cleanin’ goin’ on.
Yes, there’s a whole lotta cleanin’, a whole lotta cleanin’ goin’ on.
But it sure goes faster when you’re singin’ a song.

Ooo, bop, bow!  Whole lotta cleanin’ goin’ on.
Ooo, bop bow!  Whole lotta cleanin’ goin’ on.
Ooo, bop! When you’re singin’ a song!

(Dust, sweep, wax, wipe.)  Soak, mop, scrub, swipe.
(Wash, brush, cleanse, scrape) Vacuum, disinfect, shine, shake.
(Sponge, shampoo, scour, rinse) Polish, tidy up LOOK IT’S A CINCH!

Ooo, bop, bow!  Whole lotta cleanin’ goin’ on.
Ooo, bop bow!  Whole lotta cleanin’ goin’ on.
Ooo, bop, bow! But it sure goes faster.

When you’re singin’ a song!

Strollin’ Through the 50’s With You

Do you remember our lives in the fifties?
The pace was much slower, That’s true!
The birth of the golden arches, and Holiday Inns
Strollin’ through the fifties with you.(2X)

Do you remember our lives in the fifties?
I coloured my hair; it turned blue!
The frozen T.V. dinners and Smokey the Bear.
Strollin’ through the fifties with you.(2X)

 (lines spoken over very quiet singing below)
Santa:           I remember you’d start each day with a cup of coffee and the Today Show.
Mrs. Claus:         Santa, I still do!  And I still watch The Price is Right, too!
Santa:         And you remember Walt, that nice gentleman who invited us to California for a big Christmas parade?
Mrs. Claus:         Yes, dear, that was back in 1955 when Disneyland first opened!
Santa:                  Hmm, wonder if it’s still there?

Oo ---Sha-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la (2X)
Oo sha bop, Oo sha bop, Oo wah
Strollin’ through the fifties with you. (2X)

Oo ---In the fifties. (2x)
Oo sha bop, Oo sha bop, Oo wah
Strollin’ through the fifties with you. (2X)

Do you remember our lives in the fifties?
The clean black and white saddle shoes!
The first transistor radios and colour T.V.
Strollin’ through the fifties with you.
Strollin’ through the fifties with you.  Oooo, yeah!

Gifts Come From the Heart

May the treasures we share with the children ev’rywhere,
Bring joy and laughter – to ev’ryone.
May the love that we share show the children that we care.
Gifts come from the heart.

May the letters they write fill the children with delight
As they discover – what goodness brings.
May they find being nice will make you feel good twice.
Gifts come from the heart.

And in this season of love and cheer let all children do their part.
May kindness and grace, always have a place in our home,
And our heart, in our heart.

May the treasures we share with the children ev’rywhere
Bring joy and laughter – to ev’ryone.
May the love that we share show the children that we care.
Gifts come from the heart.

Gifts come from the heart.


Santa, Be Good to Me

Part 1 – regular print
Part 2 – italic print
Part 1 and 2 together – BOLD regular print!

Santa, be good to me.  Be good to me, be good to me.
Santa, be good to me.  Be good to me, be good to me.
I’m so very nice; and I say “thank you” twice.
Santa, be good to me.  Be good to me.

Santa, be good to me.  Be good to me, be good to me.
Santa, be good to me.  Be good to me, be good to me.
I put toys away;  I brush my teeth each day.
Santa, be good to me.  Be good to me.  Oh—

That’s why I am writing, I want you to see.
All this year I’ve been so good,
Please leave a gift, under my tree

Santa, be good to me.  Be good to me, be good to me.
Santa, be good to me.  Be good to me, be good to me.
I am quite polite.  I always do what’s right
Santa, be good to me.  Be good to me.

That’s why I am writing, I want you to see.
All this year I’ve been so good,
Please leave a gift, under my tree

Santa, be good to me.  Be good to me, be good to me.
Santa, be good to me.  Be good to me, be good to me.
I always comb my hair.  I’ve even learned to share.
Santa, be good.  Santa, be good!
Santa, Santa,  be good to me!    I’ve been good!


Rockin’ Down the Chimney Tonight!

Part 1 – regular print
Part 2 – italic print
Part 1 and 2 together – BOLD regular print!

Well I woke up Christmas Eve, heard rock ‘n’ roll music in the air.
When I looked around the house there wasn’t anybody there.
So I looked up in the sky, saw Santa in his sleigh.
And his radio was turned up all the way,
Yes, he was slippin’ and a-slidin’,
Rockin’ and a-rollin’ all the way.

CHORUS:
Oh Santa’s rockin’, rockin’, rockin’, rockin’
Rockin’ down the chimney tonight.
Santa’s rockin’ down the chimney tonight.
Yes, Santa’s rockin, rockin’, rockin’, rockin’
Rockin’ down the chimney tonight.
Santa’s rockin’ down the chimney tonight.
Well, the music is loud, but he doesn’t seem to care.
He’s swingin’ his hips, and he’s shakin’ his hair!
Yes Santa’s rockin’, rockin’, rockin’, rockin’
Rockin’ down the chimney tonight.
Santa’s rockin’ down the chimney tonight.
Oh Yeah!  **Santa’s rockin’!

Well, I think I saw the reindeer dancin’ and rockin’ on the roof.
They were stompin’ and a-strollin’ step touchin’ hoof to hoof.
I saw Dasher and a-Dancer strollin’ down the line.
Comet and a-Cupid boppin’ double time!
Yes, they were slippin’ and a-slidin’,
Rockin’ and a-rollin’ all the way.

CHORUS:
CHORUS:
**Santa’s rockin’ down the Chimney tonight!
