This Christmas

Oh there is no place like home for the holidays
The smell of bread and ham baking
Music wears me like a smile
Everybody knows a turkey and some mistletoe
Help to make the season bright
Sorrel boiling for celebration
A star a star dancing in the night
Wrapping pastelles in banana leaves
Tidings of comfort and joy comfort and joy
Holiday cookies sweet bread
Rum punch and poncha creme
Line the pantry shelves
Waiting for Santa
And his little elves
It's late it's almost here
Children tucked away asleep
Silent night holy night
All is calm all is bright
Home spick and span
In your palace warm mighty king
The town is quiet as a whisper
Shall I play for you
Pa rum pum pum pum
Ahh it's done
Last string of bright hung
A song a song high above the trees
Fall on your knees
Oh hear the angel voices
Sipping spiced tea
Dreaming wishing peace
Sitting in place
Enjoying my memory space
Through the years
We all will be together
If the fates allow
And heaven and nature sing
Santa knows
All I want for Christmas is you
