Oh, I gotta real good feelin That this gonna be the best Christmas No fightin no fussin no stealin Imma get everything on my wish list Oh, I gotta real good feelin That this gonna be the best Christmas No poutin no cussin no squealing Imma get everything on my wish list Dear Santa, I been on my best behavior I brush before bedtime and I play nice with the neighbors, I keep my room spotless and I wash all of the dishes, Plus I share with my brothers and I stick up for my sisters I take out the trash when it isnt my turn to, I come in the house 4 minutes before curfew finish all my dinner even when I don't enjoy it Do what ever I'm told but my parents ignore it But they told me you know when I'm Awake and know when I'm asleep and know when I'm a make mistakes and when I don't so I'm totally sure Cuz I see it every-time that we go to the store, It's the same thing I've wanted for the past 2 Seasons So I know I deserve it, shoot I'm past due even, I signed the letter in my best Manuscript, Sat it next to the ginger snaps and cold milk A brand new bike on my wish list And some brand new nikes on my wish list Couple video games on my wish list Even a herringbone chain on my wish list Ya won't find no socks on my wish list or those turtleneck tops on my wish list Or the corduroy pants on my wish list I think I really took a chance on my wish list I know what musta happened in the previous year I was scribbling too fast, you couldnt read it too clear So even though I thought I asked for the Jordan's with patent leather You mistook it for a request for a stack of sweaters It's all good, I'll take the blame for the mishap Cuz this years are betterthan last years, dig that, Thisll be heaven sent I even ripped the page outta the Sears Catalog for you for reference CHORUS Oh, I gotta real good feelin That this gonna be the best Christmas No fightin no fussin no stealin Imma get everything on my wish list Oh, I gotta real good feelin That this gonna be the best Christmas No poutin no cussin no squealing Imma get everything on my wish list A new stereo set on my wish list New jeans and sweats on my wish list Comic books and kicks on my wish list A little loot for flicks, on my wish list I didn't put any ties on my wish list Penny loafers, any size on my wish list superman long johns on my wish list I Been working a long time on my wish list

Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the hood Not a creature was stirring, so everything was all good. The stockings were hung by the chimney so neat, In hopes that St Nicholas would come to our street. my nerves were stirring, I couldnt get to bed, While dreams of new trinkets danced in my heads. And mamma in her nightgown and I in my stocking (cap), Had just settled down from a long day of shopping When out on the stoop there arose such a fuss, I sprang from the bed to see what was up. Away to the window I flew like in a hurry, Tore open the shutters and i saw snow flurries. The moonlit glow of the new-fallen snow Gave the lustre of mid-day to the cars below. When, what to my wondering eyes should appear, But a miniature sleigh, and eight little deer. With a little old driver, so lively and quick, I thought to myself, it cant be St Nick. More rapid than crackheads his carriers they came, And he whistled, and shouted, and called them by name! now as a man raised in a ghetto so hard my senses are heightened, I'm always on guard i put on my glasses and grab my old bat for if he's a burglar, I know how to handle that i never imagined a sleigh that could fly, so quickly i dismissed this sight as a lie but up to the roof-top the reindeer they flew, With the sack full of Toys, and a dude in a red suit And then, in a twinkling, I heard em on the roof The prancing and patting of each little hoof. As I drew in my head, and was turning around, i looked up the chimney, and guess who was coming down. He was dressed all in fur, his shoes they still shined, and although he had traveled through such dirt and grime. A bundle of gadgets he flung on his back, And he looked like a peddler, just opening his pack. His eyes-how they twinkled! his dimples how merry! His cheeks were tomatoes, his nose like a cherry! the beard of his chin was as white as some cotton. I put down my bat as if i had forgotten The stump of a pipe he clenched within his teeth, And the smoke it encircled his head like a wreath. i instantly thought it was someone just joking, so i grabbed his pipe and whispered no smoking This jolly old man, i saw him yes I did, but hadnt believed in since i was like a little kid he placed his fat finger in front of his lips, then turned to my cookie, my milk and my list He spoke not a word, but I knew the deal, I got so excited, Santa is real! thought he was silent, his motions were strong he would not give presents unless I got gone i went back to bed, smiling ear to ear my belly warm and full, bursting with christmas cheer we woke up that morning with a yawn and stretch and no one was ready for what we saw next all of the presents I knew i would see, the boxes with bows sitting under that tree my mom was sad, i asked her "whats wrong?" The tree, the gifts, our christmas is gone. could it be true that my hunches were right? the jolly old man who went bump in the night was not St Nick, but some sort of imposter and that we were struck by a holiday robber? he took the playstations, our bikes, TV's nintendo ds'es and and coats with long sleeves this expert magician was smoother than silk he even devoured my cookies and milk though i was upset that he'd broke in our home, he made a mistake, he took my iPhone. thanks to the insight and brains of Steve Jobs Find My iPhone activates when you're robbed and when the time came to talk to the police thanks to technology, this cat's off the streets always lock your doors and remember, sleep light merry christmas to all, and to all a good night

Pennywise Roqy really hates christmas and i dont know why Its the best time of year where everybody feels fine Santa musta never made a stop at his crib Either that or maybe he was just a really bad kid Or maybe its the idea of santa having elves Trying to makem do the work that he should probably do himself Or maybe its the banks and corporations trying to cash in We just wana know and thats the reason why we're asking Why you gotta be a scrooge? look at tiny tim The last spirit of the story had the future looking grim So why you hate christmas i think u need to tell Before i turn your ringtone into a bunch of sleigh bells CHORUS (Ran) Yo, What you got against christmas, Roq? (Miranda) was it that you didn't get gifts a lot? (Pennywise) is it cause you think we forgot what it means? (Ran) or are you really that mean? Mr. Miranda Now RoQy, I know u don't like xmas, but livin just ain't livin if u don't have a wish list, that's a bummer to me, I know you don't have to be gifted to open gifts under a tree, but it's all about family time, xmas shopping's a workout like the p90x insanity grind, folks out buyin trees, xmas lights, hot chocolate, gingerbread houses it's just nice, to be around all the people you care for, it should happen always but this the time people will share more, lil kids tryin to pull mo' clothes, so they can go and shine brighter than Rudolph's nose CHORUS Yo, What you got against christmas, Roq? was it that you didn't get gifts a lot? is it cause you think we forgot what it means? or are you really that mean? Random Mr Tyraid, I'm tryin to understand where you coming from most holidays are pretty cool, but some of them are blown outta proportion, some would say they all are, ridiculous excuses to run out and buy a hallmark- card but Christmas, its deeper than that deeper than the toys the big man keeps in his sack all the gifts we get in this life? gotta appreciate the things people do for you dog? i think you need to take a look at what we goin through right now think about how many people would kill to have your lifestyle It's enough sadness for all the days on the calendar so take a day off and take a load off,i challenge ya to let yourself go and discover the true essence and wait--are you saying that you dont accept presents? stop lyin! start trying, take the coal he gave you and turn it to a diamond! CHORUS Yo, What you got against christmas, Roq? was it that you didn't get gifts a lot? is it cause you think we forgot what it means? or are you really that mean? RoQy TyRaiD Past Christmases all that mattered was fam & Religion/ Now its propaganda and capitalism/ Can't Have a Tradition without Corporations' association/ Everything that's sacred and wholesome is tainted/ No inspiration to participate in "mistletoe kisses" obligated dinners and gift exchangin/ I'm sick of fakeness/ You forgive mistakes.. cuz "its the holidays" /  But won't pay em a visit when it's NOT though, they're a mile away! / Lame songs & eggnog, thank god its just a day long/ I'm a grinch, I know/ I just refuse to be convinced.. you're in a "sentimental mood"/ Forget the presents, throw the residents of Whooville off the Cliff (noooooooooo) /  Along with their "holiday cheer"/ It gets earlier and earlier, it started mid-august, this year!/ I DO accept and give gifts, lets not be mistaken/ I just don't need a special day to show my appreciation/

Soon as we finish off the turkey and the cranberry Sauce, I'm off the basement with aunt Mary Breaking out the boxes labeled xmas A 7 foot tree completes the checklist Tree up, stocking stuffed, now we ready, The warmth of the season always gets my heart heavy kinda feel emotional this time of year Know the holidays are sposed to bring all kinda cheer, But I wonder how the homeless is gettin through em Without presents or family to give em to em And the orphans, who watch us spend fortunes, on stuff we can't afford when they only get a portion, That's why I try to show some love, Donate some time sweaters, coats and gloves, ya know Growin up we didn't have alotta dough Borderline poor, but don't that to my momma though Single mother, cuz was pop was never there But she saved all year so the tree was never bare And I'm proud of her, I know I'm lucky G, Pray to be half the parent that she was to me Taught me some valuable lessons, Like if you're blessed its only right to be a blessing And imma always remember The season of giving don't start in December CHORUS This is my Christmas Prayer, I hope this sees you in good health or gets you there, yeah Sometimes we forget you there But the the blessing is that we have gifts to share, I say again This is my Christmas Prayer, I hope this sees you in good health or gets you there, yeah Sometimes we forget you there But the the blessing is that we have gifts to share, To the students I taught in Langhorne at woods services, who never the good fortune of better alternatives Products of poor parenting and mad abuse And they wonder Feel like they don't deserve to live How serious is it? Some kids go years without a parental visit But they send you mad expensive presents And you would trade it all to be in their presence Some are never goin home again I pray you never spend a holiday alone again Gets me in a reflective mood How would you live if you had no one you were special to Some people see it as some decorations and lights I see it as a symbol on how to live your life Why make a child if u can't take care of it And What good is fortune if you aint sharing it The best gift is easy to see, It isn't in a box sitting under a tree It's good in the winter and all year through, The greatest gift I have is you The best gift is easy to see, It isn't in a box sitting under a tree It's good in the winter and all year through, The greatest gift I have is you CHORUS This is my Christmas Prayer, I hope this sees you in good health or gets you there, yeah Sometimes we forget you there But the the blessing is that we have gifts to share, I say again This is my Christmas Prayer, I hope this sees you in good health or gets you there, yeah Sometimes we forget you there But the the blessing is that we have gifts to share
