New Lyrics for Christmas Album (Nashville)

Old Hickory Blvd near Franklin Pike

(google map)

I have written complete rhyming lyrics to four new Christmas songs that are ready to be put into your Christmas CD or album, sung to your tune, played by you and/or your artists. All lyrics have been copyrighted by me. You can copyright your artistic work with these lyrics. I do have a sample melody for each song that may be used or may be ignored. I can email the melodies to you in an MP3 file. Songs are described below in no particular order. Each song would be about 3 to 3.5 minutes long.

FIRST SONG relates to Rudolph and the other reindeer.
Preliminary title: On Christmas Day in the Morning
7 verses and no Chorus. All verses have four rhyming lines and then end with same last line.
--Verse 3:
Then fog rolled in that Christmas eve
And Santa said, "I do believe
This night's so dark we won't achieve
Our goal of gifts we want to leave
For Christmas day in the morning."

SECOND SONG relates to Santa's relationship with his reindeer.
--Preliminary title: Santa's Reindeer Fly Only at Christmas.
--11 verses and no chorus.
--Verse 11:
So now you know some of the story
For each of these special reindeer
Who love making toys in the workshop
And fly only at Christmas each year.

THIRD SONG relates to Christmas eve.
Preliminary title: Our Rottweiler bit Santa at the Chimney.
Meter is same as Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer.
7 verses plus chorus.
--Verse 7:
I never after that forgot my duty
To pen the dog up on that night.
And when we tell our family story
We always talk about that Christmas bite.
--Chorus
Our Rottweiler bit Santa at the Chimney
When I forgot to put him in the pen.
Noise woke up my sisters who were cryin'
When they saw Santa cornered in the den.

FOURTH SONG has the typical elements of a southern holiday ballad: poverty, dirt farm, railroad, death, loneliness, Christmas, hope.
Preliminary title: Don't Forget Your Grandma Now at Christmas.
7 verses plus chorus.
--Verse 7:
Grandma hoped her children would stay longer. (i.e., when they came home for funeral)
She wished the grandkids could have come along.
But work and sports seem now to be life's master
And we need to be reminded by this song.
--Chorus
Don't forget your grandma now at Christmas,
Living there alone with all her charm.
Taking care of what her husband left her
When he died while working on the farm.
