Christmas As I Knew It

Original and similar lyrics
One day near Christmas when I was just a child Mama called us together and mama tried to smile She said you know the cotton crop hadn't been too good this year There's not a lot of spending money and well at least we're all here I hope you won't expect a lot of Christmas presents Just be thankful that there is plenty to eat That'll make things a little more pleasant And us kids got to thinking how really blessed we were At least we were all healthy and most of all we had her Roy cut down a pine oak tree and we drug it home Jack and me Daddy killed a squirrel and Louise made the bread Reba decorated the tree with popcorn strings before we went to bed Mama and daddy sacrificed because this Christmas was kind of lean After all there was the babies Tom and Joanne And babies need a few things I whittled a whistle for my brother Jack And though we disagreed now and then When I gave Jack that whistle he knew I thought the world of him Mama made the girl's dresses out of flower sacks And when she ironed them down You couldn't tell that they hadn't come from town A sharecropper family across the road didn't have it as good as us They didn't even have a light and it was way past dusk And mama said, "Well I bet they don't even have coal oil Let alone apples and oranges and such" Me and Jack took a jar of coal oil nd some hickernuts we'd found We walked to the sharecropper's porch and set 'em down A poor old ragged lady eased open the door She picked up the coal oil and hickernuts and said "I sure do thank you" and quickly closed the door We started back home me and Jack And about halfway we stopped looked back And in the sharecropper's window at last was a light So for one of the neighbors and for us it was a good Christmas night Christmas came and Christmas went Christmas that year was heaven sent And my daddy put on his rubber boots And paced the floor waiting for the thaw Back home in Dyess Arkansas

Jacks Obsession

Tim Burton
Performed by Danny Elfman and Cast CITIZENS OF HALLOWEEN Something's up with jack Something's up with jack Don't know if we're ever going to get him back He's all alone up there Locked away inside Never says a word Hope he hasn't died Something's up with jack Something's up with jack JACK Christmas time is buzzing in my skull Will it let me be? I cannot tell There are so many things I cannot grasp When I think I've got it, and then at last Through my bony fingers it does slip Like a snowflake in a fiery grip Something's here I'm not quite getting Though I try, I keep forgetting Like a memory long since past Here in an instant, gone in a flash What does it mean? What does it mean? In these little bric-a-brac A secret's waiting to be cracked These dolls and toys confuse me so Confound it all, I love it though Simple objects, nothing more But something's hidden through a door Though I do not have the key Something's there I cannot see What does item? What does it mean? What does item? Hmm... I've read these Christmas books so many times I know the stories and I know the rhymes I know the Christmas carols all by heart My skull's so full, it's tearing me apart As often as I've read them, something's wrong So hard to put my bony finger on Or perhaps it's really not as deep As I've been led to think Am I trying much too hard? Of course! I've been too close to see The answer's right in front of me Right in front of me It's simple really, very clear Like music drifting in the air Invisible, but everywhere just because I cannot see it Doesn't mean I can't believe it You know, I think this Christmas thing It's not as tricky as it seems And why should they have all the fun? lt should belong to anyone Not anyone, in fact, but me Why, I could make a Christmas tree And there's no reason I can find I couldn't handle Christmas time I bet I could improve it too And that's exactly what l'II do Hee,hee,hee Heureka! I've got it

Mass Destruction

FAITHLESS "No Roots"
My dad came into my room holding his hat I knew he was leavin, sat on my bed told me some facts, son, I have a duty callin on me, you'n your sister be brave my little soldier an don't forget all I told ya, You're the mister of the house now remember this, an when you wake up in the mornin give you're mama a kiss, Then I had to say goodbye, in the mornin woke mama with a kiss on each eyelid even though I'm only a kid, certain things can't be hid, mama grabbed me, held me like I was made of gold but left her inner stories untold, I said Mama it'll be alright, when daddy comes home tonight. Chorus: Whetther long range weapon or suicide bomb a wickded mind is a weapon of mass destruction, whether you're soaraway sun or BBC1 misinformation is a weapon of mass destruction, You coulda caucasian or a poor Asian racism is a weapon of mass destruction, whether inflation or globalisation fear is a weapon of mass destruction, whether halliburton, enron or anyone greed is a weapon of mass destruction, we have to find courage, overcome inaction is a weapon of mass destruction. The skin under my chin is exploding again I'm getting stress from some others children, I'm holding it in we takin sides like a politician an if I get friction we get to fightin I defend my dad He's the best of all men an whatever he's doin, he's doin the right thing its frightening, but it makes me mad why do all these people seem to hate my dad? an if that ain't enough, now I got these spots I go to sleep every night with my stomach in knots and whats more I can hear mama next door explore the radio for reports of war an all we ever seem to do is hide the tears seems like daddy's been gone for years but he was right, now I'm geared up for the fight an he would be proud of me if my daddy came home tonight. Chorus My story stops here, lets be clear this scenario is happenin everywhere an you ain't goin to nirvana or far-vana you comin right back here to live out you're karma with even more drama than previously... seriously just how many centuries have we been waitin for someone else to make us free an we refuse to see, that people overseas suffer just like we bad leadership and ego's unfettered and free who feed on the people they're supposed to lead I don't need good people to pray and wait for the lord to make it all straight there's only now, do it right 'cos I don't want your daddy leaving home tonight! Chorus

Town Meeting Song

Tim Burton
Performed by Danny Elfman arid Cast JACK Listen, there were objects so peculiar They were not to be believed All around, things to tantalise my brain It's a world unlike anything I've ever seen And as hard as I try I can't seem to describe Like a most improbable dream But you must believe when I tell you this It's as real as my skull and it does exist Here, let me show you This is a thing called a present The whole thing starts with a box DEVIL A box? is it steel? WEREWOLF Are there locks? HARLEOUIN DEMON Is it filled with a pox? DEVIL, WEREWOLF, HARLEGUIN DEMON A pox How delightful, a pox JACK lf you please just a box with bright-colored paper And the whole thing's topped with a bow WITCHES A bow? But why? How ugly What's in it? What's in it? JACK That's the point of the thing, not to know CLOWN It's a bat Will it bend? CREATURE UNDER THE STAIRS lt's a rat Will it break? UNDERSEA GAL Perhaps it s the head that I found in the lake JACK Listen now, you don't understand That's not the point of Christmas land Now, pay attention Now we pick up an oversized sock And hang it like this on the wall MR. HYDE Oh, yes! Does it still have a foot? MEDIUM MR. HYDE Let me see, let me look SMALL MR. HYDE Is it rotted and covered with gook? JACK Hmm, let me explain There's no foot inside, but there's candy Or sometimes it's filled with small toys MUMMY AND WINGED DEMON Small toys WINGED DEMON Do they bite? MUMMY Do they snap? WINGED DEMON Or explode in a Sack? CORPSE KID Or perhaps they just spring out And scare girls and boys MAYOR What a splendid idea This Christmas sounds fun Why, I fully endorse it Let's try it at once JACK Everyone, please now, not so fast There's something here that you don't quite grasp Well, I may as well give them what they want And the best, I must confess, I have saved for the last For the ruler of this Christmas land Is a fearsome king with a deep mighty voice Least that's what I've come to understand And I've also heard it told That he's something to behold Like a lobster, huge and red And sets out to slay with his rain gear on Carting bulging sacks with his big great arms That is, so I've heard it said And on a dark, cold night Under full moonlight He flies into a fog Like a vulture in the sky And they call him Sandy Claws Welt, at least they're excited Though they don't understand That special kind of feeling in Christmas land Oh, well...
