Bing Crosby / The Andrews Sisters – Mele Kalikimaka

Mele Kalikimaka is the thing to say on a bright Hawaiian Christmas day
That’s the island greeting that we send to you
From the land where palm trees sway
Here we know that Christmas will be green and bright
The sun will shine by day and all the stars at night
Mele Kalikimaka is Hawaii’s way to say Merry Christmas to you


I Hate Christmas – Oscar the Grouch


I can’t think of anything that’s dumber.
To a grouch, Christmas is a bummer!

Beaming faces everywhere.
Happiness is in the air.
I’m telling you, it isn’t fair!
I hate Christmas!

People loaded with good will,
Giving presents. What a thrill!
That slushy nonsense makes me ill.
I hate Christmas!

I’d rather have a holiday like normal grouches do.
Instead of getting presents, they take presents back from you!

Here comes Santa, girls and boys!
So who needs that big red noise?
I’ll tell him where to leave his toys.
I hate Christmas!

And if you want the truth, I ain’t so crazy about Easter and Labor Day either!

Christmas carols to be sung.
Decorations to be hung.
Oh, yeah? Well, I stick out my tongue!

I hate Christmas!

Christmas bells play loud and strong.
Hurts my ears, all that ding-dong.
Besides, it goes on much too long!

I hate Christmas!

I’d rather have a holiday with a lot less joy and flash,
With a lot less cheerful smiling, and a lot more dirty trash, yeah!

Christmas Day is almost here.
When it’s over, then I cheer!
I’m glad it’s only once a year.
I hate Christmas!
