Track Name: Christmas Eve Eve
Footsteps on the roof again
Saint Nicholas circling overhead
and I ain't getting nothing but coal
I got on the naughty list
but I'm not there all by myself
'cause I ain't been bad all alone

This Christmas Eve Eve I'm gonna throw a party
for all my loser friends and all the working stiffs
so if you pass by my house, Santa don't you worry
this Christmas I have no use for gifts

No brand new red fire trucks
no stockings filled up with stuff
no kisses beneath the mistletoe
I guess this just wasn't my year
but I'm not giving up on cheer
'cause I won't spend Christmas alone

This Christmas Eve Eve I'm gonna throw a party
for all my piss drunk friends and all the double shifts
so if you pass by my house, Santa don't you worry
this Christmas you can cross me off the list
This Christmas Eve Eve I'm gonna throw a party
for all my loser friends and all the working stiffs
so if you pass by my house, Santa don't you worry
this Christmas I have no use for gifts
Track Name: Lo, How A Rose E're Blooming
Lo, how a rose e're blooming
from tender stem hath sprung
Of Jesse's lineage coming
as men of old have sung
It came a flower bright
Amid the cold of winter
when half spent was the night

This flower who's fragrance tender
with sweetness fills the air
Dispels with glorious splendor
the darkness everywhere
True love so pure and good
From pain and death it saves us
and lightens every load

A spotless rose is blowing
sprung from a tender root
Of ancient seers for showing
of Jesse's promised fruit
Its bud unfolds to light
Amid the cold, cold winter
and in the dark midnight
