"The Night Before Christmas" as written by and Carly Simon....
Children carry through the streets
A brightly painted star
Angels gather round the hearth
Strumming on guitars
Men of great renown and faith
Say prayers on boulevards
It's the night before Christmas

But you don't have to be an angel
To sing harmony
You don't have to be a child
To love the mystery (mystery)
And you don't have to be a wise man
On bended knee
The heart of this Christmas is in you and me

(The night before Christmas)
(The night before Christmas)

If your heart's been longing
You've been afraid to try
Sorrow's kept you company
And the dance has passed by
I'll lift you up and blaze with you
Across the moonlit sky
On the night before Christmas

'Cause you don't have to be an angel
To sing harmony
You don't have to be a child
To love the mystery (mystery)
And you don't have to be a wise man
On bended knee
The heart of this Christmas is in you and me

The heart of this Christmas is in you and me
(The night before Christmas)
(The night) the night before Christmas
(The night) the night before Christmas
(The night) the night before Christmas
(The night before Christmas)
(The night) the night before Christmas
(The night before Christmas)
(The night) the night before Christmas
(The night) la, la, la, la
