I'm a Little Reindeer
to the tune of "I'm a Little Teapot"

I'm a little reindeer,
Can't you see?
Black nose, antlers --
Look at me.
Christmas is coming;
Soon it will be here.
I'll help Santa spread
Christmas cheer!

I'm a Tiny Evergreen
to the tune of "I'm a Little Teapot"

I'm a tiny evergreen, can't you see,
All the other evergreens are taller than me.
But I'll keep on growing and one day I'll be
A great big merry Christmas tree!

Jingle Bells

Jingle bells, jingle bells,
Jingle all the way,
Oh what fun it is to ride
In a one-horse open sleigh!

Jingle all the way.
Oh what fun it is to ride
In a one-horse open sleigh!

Our Christmas Tree
to the tune of "The Mulberry Bush"

This is the way we look for a tree,
Look for a tree, look for a tree,
This is the way we look for a tree,
Early in December.

This is the way we dig it up,
Dig it up, dig it up,
This is the way we dig it up,
Early in December.

This is the way we carry it home,
Carry it home, carry it home,
This is the way we carry it home,
Early in December.

This is the way we stand it up,
Stand it up, stand it up,
This is the way we stand it up,
Early in December.

This is the way we decorate it,
Decorate it, decorate it,
This is the way we decorate it,
Early in December.

This is the way we water it,
Water it, water it,
This is the way we water it,
All through December.

This is the way we plant it again,
Plant it again, plant it again,
This is the way we plant it again,
When December's over.

Ten Little Candy Canes

One little, two little, three little candy canes,
Four little, five little, six little candy canes,
Seven little, eight little, nine little candy canes,
Ten little canes.

Candy canes, candy canes,
What shall we do with them?
Candy canes, candy canes,
What shall we do with them?
Candy canes, candy canes,
What shall we do with them?
What shall we do with them?

Lick them, lick them, lick those candy canes.
Hang them, hang them, hang them on the Christmas tree.
Tie them, tie them, tie them up with bows.
Ten litte candy canes.

Tiny Elves

Tiny elves,
Tiny elves,
See how they work!

Making toys -- there's no time to stop.
For Christmas will soon be here.
For Christmas will soon be here.



We Wish You A Merry Christmas

Reindeer flying high,
Traveling here tonight,
Traveling here tonight.
