Stories & Songs #5 | Twelve Days of Christmas!

I just couldn't let the opportunity for a Christmassy Stories & Songs pass me by! As always, you can find all the songs below in this playlist.




by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan

"All I Want for Christmas is You"
Mariah Carey

Oh, I won't ask for much this Christmas
I won't even wish for snow
I'm just gonna keep on waiting
Underneath the mistletoe

I won't make a list and send it
To the North Pole for Saint Nick
I won't even stay awake to
Hear those magic reindeer click

'Cause I just want you hear tonight
Holding on to me so tight
What more can I do?
Baby, all I want for Christmas is you



by Charles Dickens

"God Bless Us Everyone"
Andrea Bocelli

To the voices no one hears
We have come to find you
With your laughter and your tears
Goodness, hope and virtue

Father, mother, daughter, son
Each a treasure be
One candle's light dispels the night
Now our eyes can see

Burning brighter than the sun
God bless us everyone
A miracle has just begun
God bless us everyone



by Jenny Colgan

"Stop the Cavalry"
Jona Lewie

Bang, that's another bomb on another town
While Luzar and Jim have tea
If I get home, live to tell the tale
I'll run for all presidencies
If I get elected I'll stop-
I will stop the cavalry

Dub a dub a dum dum
Dub a dub a dum
Dub a dum dum dub a dub
Dub a dub a dum

Dub a dub a dum dum
Dub a dub a dum
Dub a dum dum dub a dub
Dub a dub a dum

Wish I was at home for Christmas

"Nos Galan"
John Ceiriog Hughes

Oer yw'r gwr sy'n methu caru,
Fa la la la la, la la la la
Hen fynyddoedd anwyl Cymru,
Fa la la la la, la la la la
Iddo ef a'u car gynhesaf
Fa la la la la, la la la la
Gwyliau llawen flwydd nesaf,
Fa la la la la, la la la la

I'r helbulus oer yw'r biliau,
Fa la la la la, la la la la
Sydd yn dyfod yn y Gwyliau,
Fa la la la la, la la la la
Gwrando bregeth mewnun pennill,
Fa la la la la, la la la la
Byth na waria fwy na'th ennill,
Fa la la la la, la la la la

Oer yw'r eira ar Eryi,
Fa la la la la, la la la la
Er fod gwrthban gwlanen arni,
Fa la la la la, la la la la
Oer yw'r bobol na ofalan',
Fa la la la la, la la la la
Gwrdd a'u gilydd Ar Nos Galan,
Fa la la la la, la la la la



by E. T. A. Hoffman

"Toy Soldier"
Enya

One toy soldier stands alone
With his drum down by his side

One toy soldier on his own
With his drum to keep the time

He keeps the beat of marching feet
He keeps the beat so true
He's one small toy for one small boy
But his heart is oh so blue

Who can mend my broken drum
Will it be as good as new

I must play when morning comes
If I don't, what shall I do?

He keeps the beat of marching feet
He keeps the beat inside
While children sleep, in dreams so deep
There's a secret he must hide

For he keeps the beat of marching feet
He keeps the beat so true
He wants to sing and hopes to bring
Happy Christmas day to you

Da, Da, Da...

He keeps the beat of marching feet
He keeps the beat inside
Someone has come to mend his drum
Now his heart lights up with pride

So he keeps the beat of marching feet
He keeps the beat so true
When morning comes, he plays his drum

Happy Christmas Day to you!
Happy Christmas Day to you!
Happy Christmas Day to you!
Happy Christmas Day to you!
