Track Name: Fro Zen - Garlands Are Better Than Tinsel [Ozark Snow Edition]
garlands are better than tinsel
when we trim up the tree

yeah, tinsel is tacky
and messy and scrappy
and it really does a number on the vacuum!

whoa, it’s okay buddy
but tinsel shines brighter than garlands
as silver does next to gold

that’s technically true
for Ag and Au (but depending on the wavelength…)!

alrighty, let's just hang the lights

you’re right!

just let the lights be lights
Track Name: Simon and Peterfunkel - I Found a Rock
oh every year
at the dawning of December
i would write a wishlist
and send it on its way
i counted off the days
but on the 25th i woke to my dismay
i found a rock
down in my stocking

what have i done
oh i’ve tried to be good this year
am i a degenerate
i only asked for presents
presents i could use
i would even take an ugly pair of shoes
but i found a rock
down in my stocking

i’m not a crook
though i’ve acted like a baby
and now i’m staring at a nativity
i know that i’ve been flailing
around on shifting sand
and i need a firmer ground on which to stand
i found a rock
down in my stocking

and that rock never sways
and my stocking's not the same
Track Name: Madonna on the Rocks - Second​-​Rate Presents
hey boys and girls, do you believe in santa claus
'cause i've got something to sing about it

don't hope for second-rate presents
put your gifts to the test
you know, you know i've got you
checked on my christmas list
maybe i'll help you see that love is real
'cause these gifts don't wrap themselves

you know these presents
don't wrap themselves
on christmas day
but if you wannna know how they got wrapped
i could show you now
but it would ruin the surprise
if you opened your eyes

every year there's a fascination
with goodies and the north pole
cold nights and tiny lights too
and caroling out in the snow
well is it spirit past or present
or future that you love the most
bikes and trains and video games
have got nothing on the holy ghost

don't hope for second-rate presents
put your gifts to the test
ho ho ho ho, i've got you
checked on my christmas list
maybe i'll help you see that love is real

and on christmas day there'll be no more sugar
in those advent calendar doors
and on boxing day just return that reindeer sweater
don't try to pawn it on me, no please

don't hope for second-rate presents
put your gifts to the test
you know, you know i've got you
checked on my christmas list
maybe i'll help you see that love is real

you know these presents
don't wrap themselves
on christmas day
Track Name: Freezin's the Reason
there’s a town in the north
where it’s cold and it’s called
the magic city
where they bustle all year long
our foundations rest upon
the hopes that they’re building

with childlike faith to get us there
we could travel by air
like the enchanted reindeer
and everyone in that happy land
well they understand
why not everyone stays

it’s freezin’s the reason
for this season is cold, cold, cold

what comes down the fireplace
brings you joy and warms your face
with hope for the race
another line to tie minot
to this parcel well why not
it needs to keep safe

for another child on the way
tell me if you know the day
we can’t wait to believe in
it’s warm inside i feel the glow
it tells me where is need to grow
just don’t leave me out in the snow

it’s freezin’s the reason
for this season is cold, cold, cold

freezin’s the reason
for this season is cold, cold, cold
and if he is the reason
for your season it warms your soul
Track Name: The Holly and the Ivy
The holly and the ivy
When they are both full grown
Of all the trees that are in the wood
The holly bears the crown
O the rising of the sun
And the running of the deer
The playing of the merry organ
Sweet singing of the choir

The holly bears a blossom
As white as lily flower
And Mary bore sweet Jesus Christ
To be our sweet Saviour
O the rising of the sun
And the running of the deer
The playing of the merry organ
Sweet singing of the choir

The holly bears a berry
As red as any blood
And Mary bore sweet Jesus Christ
To do poor sinners good
O the rising of the sun
And the running of the deer
The playing of the merry organ
Sweet singing of the choir

The holly bears a prickle
As sharp as any thorn
And Mary bore sweet Jesus Christ
On Christmas Day in the morn
O the rising of the sun
And the running of the deer
The playing of the merry organ
Sweet singing of the choir

The holly and the ivy
Now both are full well grown
Of all the trees that are in the wood
The holly bears the crown
O the rising of the sun
And the running of the deer
The playing of the merry organ
Sweet singing of the choir
Track Name: Solstice
the west was close to there
the east was just as near, they lived without a fear
equidistant from the poles
where life would be diametrically opposed
and we won't stop waiting on the "whether"
as it comes around
and we won't stop waiting on for "ever"
where we hear that sound

the days are shorter now
but they soon will be lengthening somehow
if this gives cause to cheer
we're wondering if this solstice wasn't here
and we won't stop waiting on the weather
as it comes around
and we won't stop waiting on forever
where we hear that sound

come on you know you are beloved
come on you know you are
come on you know you are
come on you know you are beloved, beloved
come on you know you are
come on you know you are

and we won't stop waiting on the "whether"
as it comes around
and we won't stop waiting on for "ever"
where we hear that sound
Track Name: Ozark Snow
if there's magic in the snow
i'd love to know
if its home is in the sky
i'd love to fly
as the world tilts from the sun
you'll bring us back
to where we're from
and if you drift from the earth
then what's it worth

all i know of you
is what you've done
to make me new
all i know of you
is what you do

i won't find it all on my own
i'm not the one who owns it all
i won't find it all on my own
i'm not the one who owns it all

if there's magic in the snow
i'd love to know
if its home is in the sky
i'd love to fly
as the world tilts from the sun
you'll bring us back
to where we're from
and if you drift from the earth
then what's it worth
