Track Name: Now I Know It's Christmas Time
NOW I KNOW IT’S CHRISTMAS TIME
Written by Frank Aimetti and Richard Burke


Santa ringing a bell, asking “Please, won’t you help”
(Now I know it's Christmas time)
Lights hung high over streets and a huge lighted tree
(Now I know it's Christmas time)
Blow up snowmen bobbing on a lawn in the breeze
And next door a wooden white nativity
I know it's Christmas time!

People passing me say "Have a wonderful day!"
(Now I know it's Christmas time)
And the houses all glow while we wait for some snow.
(Now I know it's Christmas time)
Present shopping fills the malls most every night
Kids all know and try to do only what's right
They know it's Christmas time!

With December Jack Frost chills the air
Men with white beards fill up Santa chairs
Songs that tell us of a holy night
They’re part of the season’s signs that fill me with delight.
I know it’s Christmas time!

Cards we send and receive speak of what we believe
(Now I know it's Christmas time)
Wreaths we hang up with wire, stockings hung by the fire
(Now I know it's Christmas time)
Decorations passed from my parents to me
Reinforces Christmas is about family.
The love of Christmas time!

Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen
Comet, Cupid, Donder, Blitzen
(Now I know it's Christmas time)
Santa ringing a bell, asking “Please, won’t you help”
(Now I know it's Christmas time)
Lights hung high over streets and a huge lighted tree
(Now I know it's Christmas time)
People passing me say "Have a wonderful day!"
(Now I know it's Christmas time)
And the houses all glow while we wait for some snow.
(Now I know it's Christmas time)
Cards we send and receive speak of what we believe
(Now I know it's Christmas time)
Wreaths we hang up with wire, stockings hung by the fire
(Now I know it's Christmas time)
Track Name: Memories Of Christmas
MEMORIES OF CHRISTMAS
Written by Frank Aimetti and Richard Burke

Christmas comes and in my mind I’m a child at night
Driving with my family to see Christmas lights
And I think of waking up, my brother by my side
To stockings overflowing and presents piled so high

Memories of Christmas
With our star bright and lights red and green and blue
Memories of Christmas
I’ll make memories of Christmas with you

Now I’m grown and I’m with you and I clearly see
Decorations that we bought, on our Christmas tree
Makes me smile just knowing that come this Christmas morn
You’ll wish me “Merry Christmas,” and the day will be reborn

Memories of Christmas
With our star bright and lights red and green and blue
Memories of Christmas
I’ll make memories of Christmas with you

Christmas present makes memories
That we hold on to
That we can taste and smell and touch and hear and see

We’ll have kids and as they grow, I know they will find
All the joys of family that I had with mine
You and I will make it so with our love, my dear
Happy family memories of Christmas every year

Memories of Christmas
With our star bright and lights red and green and blue
Memories of Christmas
I’ll make memories of Christmas
I’ll make memories of Christmas
I’ll make memories of Christmas with you
Track Name: Christmas In Mind
Christmas In Mind
Written by Frank Aimetti and Richard Burke

Wrapping of presents for Christmas morn
Back hurts, we’re tired; paper gets torn
Biting our tongues when the tape we can’t find
Trying so hard to keep Christmas in mind

INTRO

Wrapping of presents for Christmas morn
In our beds we have to stay
Back hurts, we’re tired, paper gets torn
We can’t wait for Christmas day
Biting our tongues when the tape we can’t find
Presents underneath the tree
Trying so hard to keep Christmas in mind
Hope some are for me

Eight weeks of shopping so Christmas is right
We know that on Christmas Eve
Trudging through malls strung with sparkling lights
To the good kids who believe
Even when pushed, we try hard to be kind
Santa and his reindeer fly
Sometimes it’s hard to keep Christmas in mind
Presents piled so high

Is there more of Christmas that we all should keep in mind?
Peace on earth and joy to all and love for all mankind?
Isn’t that what Christmas time is really all about?
Could we see the majesty if we did without?

BREAK

Is there more of Christmas that we all should keep in mind?
Peace on earth and joy to all and love for all mankind?
Isn’t that what Christmas time is really all about?
Could we see the majesty if we did without?

Hearth filled with fire, tree filled with lights
Have another Christmas dream
Drinking some eggnog, holding my wife
May be hard, or so it seems
Watching a movie, a life’s redefined
That we’ll always be inclined
We found our way to keep Christmas in mind
To keep Christmas in mind

We’ll keep Christmas in mind
We’ll keep, we’ll keep, we’ll keep Christmas in mind
Track Name: Christmas Is Coming (The New York State Thruway)
Christmas Is Coming (The New York State Thruway)
Written by Frank Aimetti and Richard Burke


The New York State Thruway’s a cold, lonely road
In wintertime, north of Poughkeepsie
And driving a semi through gale driven sleet
Brings a warp speed effect – makes you dizzy.

And it doesn’t help much that I’m missing you so
Makes my mind drift to when we’re together
But six exits later I come back to the road
And I wonder just how did I get there

Well, Christmas is comin’, there’s presents to buy
So our kids can keep up with the Jones’
Christmas is coming, there’s presents to buy
So we don’t have to hear all their groans

Been driving this rig for a day and a half
Cause the money’s too good to reject it.
So I lie to the owners and live on caffeine
And I hope that my rig I don’t wreck it.

And it isn‘t real easy to tell the white lines
From the white snow that covers this roadway
And it isn’t real easy keepin’ open my eyes
But I still keep on haulin’ my loads, hey

‘Cause Christmas is comin’, there’s presents to buy
So our kids can keep up with the Jones’
Yeah, Christmas is coming, there’s presents to buy
So we don’t have to hear all their groans

So I turn up my XM and listen real hard
‘Bout a mother who prays for deliverance.
And I swear to that God if I get where I’m goin’
I’ll sleep for a day without hindrance.

Oh Yeah, Christmas is comin’, there’s presents to buy
So our kids can keep up with the Jones’
Christmas is coming, there’s presents to buy
So we don’t have to hear all their groans
