Track Name: From Me To Yule
From Me to Yule
By Alexandra L. Weber Morales © November 18, 2014

Winter’s here and I forgot to remember
To make enough money to last through December
So let's snuggle up on the old leather couch
Watch the TV Yule log, man it never burns out

The holiday party didn’t go as planned
Drank too much nog and then I did a head stand
Next day at the office they're looking at me funny
Guess I'm toast ‘cause there’s a layoff coming

[prechorus]
Blaring ads, the stores play us for fools
Selling slippers and bath salts and shiny tools
Even Santa knows the joy of thrift
His workshop runs on forced labor!
So I wrapped up free stuff left out by the neighbor
Look! A yoga ball and a ravioli maker!

[chorus]
Won't you accept this gift
Won't you accept this gift
From me to Yule
From me to Yule

Never send cards but I think of friends fondly
Then I remember how they wronged me
Didn't help out at the soup kitchen
But I gave 20 bucks to every street musician

Won't you accept this gift
Won't you accept this gift
From me to Yule
From me to Yule

[bridge]
Like Jimmy Stewart we could lasso the moon
It's A Wonderful Life is on at noon
I'll make hot cocoa and you hold me close
Somewhere there must be a blanket of snow

Won't you accept this gift
Won't you accept this gift
From me to Yule
From me to Yule
Track Name: Minuit, Chretiens (O Holy Night)
Minuit, chrétiens, c’est l’heure solennelle
Où l’Homme-Dieu descendit jusqu’à nous,
Pour effacer la tache originelle,
Et de son Père arrêter le courroux.
Le monde entier tressaille d’espérance,
À cette nuit qui lui donne un Sauveur.
Peuple, à genoux, attends ta délivrance
Noël! Noël! Voici le Rédempteur!
Noël! Noël! Voici le Rédempteur!

Le Rédempteur a brisé toute entrave,
La Terre est libre et le Ciel est ouvert.
Il voit un frère où n’était qu’un esclave,
L’amour unit ceux qu’enchaînait le fer.
Qui lui dira notre reconnaissance?
C’est pour nous tous qu’il naît, qu’il souffre et meurt.
Peuple, debout! Chante ta délivrance.
Noël! Noël! Chantons le Rédempteur!
Noël! Noël! Chantons le Rédempteur!

En otros años regalos y risas sobraban
A nuestras fiestas de lujo amistades llegaban
Diamantes y joyas, collares y aretes
Niños enloquecidos con caros juguetes

Aunque todos los sueños ya desvanecieron
Y los indiferentes desaparecieron
Alabamos un niño nacido en pesebre
Que su vida de paz y amor se celebre

Es noche buena y mi cartera está vacía
Las notas serán perlas en esta melodía
Mi chimenea no tiene leña
Solo hay el calor de mi bossa nova navideña

La caridad vale más que la vida ostentosa
Hay amor en familia y es muy hermosa
La escasez no nos mata, sólo enflaquece
La honradez en la lucha a lo largo enriquece

Es noche buena y mi cartera está vacía
Las notas serán perlas en esta melodía
Mi chimenea no tiene leña
Solo hay el calor de mi bossa nova navideña
