SILENT NIGHT"
This carol was written in 1818,
Silent night, holy night,
All is calm, all is bright
Round yon virgin mother and child.
Holy infant so tender and mild,
Sleep in heavenly peace.
Sleep in heavenly peace.
Silent night, holy night,
Shepherds quake at the sight,
Glories stream from heaven afar,
Heavenly hosts sing alleluia;
Christ the Savior, is born!
Christ the Savior, is born!
Silent night, holy night,
Son of God, love's pure light
Radiant beams from thy holy face,
With the dawn of redeeming grace,
Jesus, Lord, at thy birth.
Jesus, Lord, at thy birth.
 

WHITE CHRISTMAS 

I'm dreaming of a white Christmas,
just like the ones I used to know,
where the tree-tops glisten
and the children listen
to hear sleigh bells in the snow.

I'm dreaming of a white Christmas
with ev'ry Christmas card I write:
may your days be merry and bright
and may all your Christmases be white.

I'm dreaming of a white Christmas
with ev'ry Christmas card I write:
may your days be merry and bright
and may all your Christmases be white


WE WISH YOU A MARRY CHRISTMAS

We wish you a marry Christmas
we wish you a marry Christmas
we wish you a marry Christmas
and a happy new year. (2 v.)
Good tidings to you
wherever you are
good tidings for Christmas
and happy new year.

Now bring us some wiggle pudding
now bring us some wiggle pudding
now bring us some wiggle pudding
and bring some right here.
We won't go until we get some
we won't go until we get some
we won't go until we get some
so bring some right here.

We wish...
Good tidings to you
wherever you are
good tidings for Christmas
and happy new year.

Now bring us some tea and crumpets
now bring us some tea and crumpets
now bring us some tea and crumpets
and bring some right here.
We won't go until we get some
we won't go until we get some
we won't go until we get some
so bring some right here.
We wish..
We all know that Santa's coming,
we all know that Santa's coming,
we all know that Santa's coming,
and soon will be here.

  JINGLE BELLS     (James Pierpont - 1857)
   
Dashing through the snow In a one-horse open sleigh
Through the fields we go Laughing all the way.
Bells on bob-tail ring Making spirits bright
What fun it is to ride and sing A sleighing song tonight.

chorus: Jingle bells, jingle bells Jingle all the way,
Oh what fun it is to ride In a one-horse open sleigh,
O Jingle bells, jingle bells Jingle all the way,
Oh what fun it is to ride In a one-horse open sleigh.

A day or two ago I thought I'd take a ride
And soon Miss Fanny Bright Was seated by my side;
The horse was lean and lank Misfortune seemed his lot,
We ran into a drifted bank And there we got upsot.

chorus:
   
A day or two ago The story I must tell
I went out on the snow And on my back I fell;
A gent was riding by In a one-horse open sleigh
He laughed at me as I there sprawling laid But quickly drove away.

chorus:

Now the ground is white, Go it while you're young,
Take the girls along And sing this sleighing song.
Just bet a bob-tailed bay, Two-forty as his speed,
Hitch him to an open sleigh and crack! You'll take the lead.

chorus:
   
ADESTE FIDELES

Adeste fideles Læti triumphantes
Venite, venite in Bethlehem
Natum videte Regem angelorum
Venite adoremus Dominum

En grege relicto humiles ad cunas
Vocati pastores adproperant
Et nos ovanti gradu festinemus
Venite adoremus Dominum
 
Æterni Parentis Splendorem æternum
Velatum sub carne videbimus
Deum infantem pannis involutum
Venite adoremus Dominum

Pro nobis egenum et fœno cubantem
Piis foveamus amplexibus
Sic nos amantem quis non redamaret
Venite adoremus Dominum

Ergo qui natus die hodierna,
Jesu, tibi sit gloria,
Patris aeterni, Verbum caro factum est
Venite adoremus Dominum
  O COME ALL YE FAITHFUL    

O come, all ye faithful Joyful and triumphant,
O come ye, O come ye to Bethlehem.
Come and behold Him, Born the King of Angels!

refrain: O come, let us adore Him,
O come, let us adore Him,
O come, let us adore Him, Christ the Lord

God of God, Light of Light,
 Lo! He abhors not the Virgin’s womb.
 Very God, begotten not created;

(refrain)

Sing, choirs of angels, sing in exultation!
 Sing, all ye citizens of heaven above:
 Glory to God, glory in the highest!2

(refrain)

Yea, Lord, we greet Thee, born this happy morning,
 Jesu, to Thee be glory given.3
 Word of the Father, now in flesh appearing;
(refrain)
   
 LAST CHRISTMAS    (WHAM)

Last Christmas I gave you my heart
But the very next day you gave it away
This year to save me from tears
I'll give it to someone special
Last Christmas I gave you my heart
But the very next day you gave it away
This year to save me from tears
I'll give it to someone special
Once bitten and twice shy
I keep my distance but you still catch my eye
Tell me baby, do you recognise me?
Well it's been a year it doesn't surprise me
(Happy Christmas!)
I wrapped it up and sent it
With a note saying "I love you" I meant it
Now I know what a fool I've been
But if you kissed me now I know you'd fool me again
A crowded room, friends with tired eyes
I'm hiding from you and your soul of ice
My god I thought you were someone to rely on
Me? I guess I was a shoulder to cry on
A face on a lover with a fire in his heart
A man undercover but you tore me apart
Now I found a real love you'll never fool me again

   OH HAPPY DAY

Oh happy day [Oh happy day]
Oh happy day [Oh happy day]
When Jesus washed [When Jesus washed]
Oh when He washed [Oh when He washed]
Mmm, when He washed [Oh when He washed]
He washed the sins away [Oh happy day]
Oh happy day [Oh happy day]
He taught me how to watch, fight and pray
[Fight and pray]
He taught me how to watch, fight and pray
[Fight and pray]
Oh happy day [Oh happy day]
Oh happy day [Oh happy day]
When Jesus washed [When Jesus washed]
Oh when He washed [Oh when He washed]
Mmm, when He washed [Oh when He washed]
He washed the sins away [Oh happy day]
Oh happy day [Oh happy day]
Oh happy day [Oh happy day]
Oh yes happy day [Oh happy day]
[happy day] [happy day]
happy day [happy day]
happy day [happy day]
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Oh happy day...

   

 HAPPY CHRISTMAS  (War Is Over-John Lennon)
So this is Christmas
and what have you done
another year over
a new one just begun
and so this Xmas
I hope you have fun
the near and the dear one
the old and the young.
A merry merry Christmas
and happy New Year
let's hope it's a good one
without any fear.
And, so this is Christmas (war is over)
for weak and for strong (if you want it)
for rich and the poor ones(War is over now)
the road is so long
and so happy Christmas
for black and for white
for the yellow and red ones
let's stop all the fight.
A merry merry Christmas
and happy New Year
let's hope it's a good one
without any fear.
And, so this is Christmas
and what have we done
another year over
a new one just begun
and, so happy Christmas
we hope we have fun
the near and the dear one
the old and the young.
A merry merry Christmas
and happy New Year
let's hope it's a good one
without any fear.
(War is over if you Want
it war is over, now)

 

 STILLE NACHT 

(Joseph Mohr e Franz Xaver Gruber)

Stille Nacht, heilige Nacht, alles schlaft, einsam wacht
Nur das traute heilige Paar. Holder Knab im lockigten Haar.
Schlafe in himmlischer Ruh', Schlafe in himmlischer Ruh'
Stille Nacht, heilige Nacht, Gottes Sohn, o wie lacht,
Lieb' aus deinem gottlichen Mund,
Da uns schlagt die rettende Stund.
Jesus in deiner Geburt, Jesus in deiner Geburt.
Stille Nacht, heilige Nacht, die der Welt Heil gebracht,
Aus des Himmels goldnen Hohn, uns der Gnaden Fulle la?t sehn,
Jesus in Menschengestalt, Jesus in Menschengestalt.
Stille Nacht, heilige Nacht, Hirten erst kundgemacht.
Durch der Engel Halleluja, tont es laut bei fern und nah,
Jesus der Retter ist da, Jesus der Retter ist da.
 


 

Oh Holy Night  -  (Adolphe Adam – 1847)
O holy night the stars are brightly shining
It is the night of our dear Savior's birth
Long lay the world in sin and error pining
Till He appeared and the soul felt its worth

A thrill of hope, the weary world rejoices
For yonder breaks a glorious morn
Fall on your knees
O hear the angels' voices
O night divine
O night when Christ was born
O night divine, O night
O night divine

A thrill of hope, the weary world rejoices
For yonder breaks a glorious morn
Fall on your knees
O hear the angels' voices
O night divine
O night when Christ was born
O night divine  -  O night divine

   

AULD LANG SYNE
La canzone nota come "Valzer delle candele" viene cantata nella notte di capodanno per dare l'addio al vecchio anno. “i bei tempi andati”.

Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And never brought to mind?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And days of auld lang syne?

For auld lang syne, my dear,
For auld lang syne,
We'll tak a cup o' kindness yet,
For days of auld lang syne.

And surely ye'll be your pint-stowp,
And surely I'll be mine!
And we'll tak a cup o' kindness yet,
For auld lang syne.

For auld lang syne, my dear,
For auld lang syne,
We'll tak a cup o' kindness yet,
For auld lang syne.

We twa hae run about the braes,
And pu'd the gowans fine;
But we've wander'd mony a weary fit
Since days of auld lang syne.

For auld lang syne, my dear,
For auld lang syne,
We'll tak a cup o' kindness yet,
For auld lang syne.

We twa hae paidled i' the burn,
Frae morning sun till dine;
But seas between us braid hae roared
Since days of auld lang syne.

For auld lang syne, my dear,
For auld lang syne,
We'll tak a cup o' kindness yet,
For auld lang syne.

And there's a hand, my trusty fiere,
And gie's a hand o' thine!
And we'll tak a right guid-willie waught
For auld lang syne.

For auld lang syne, my dear,
For auld lang syne,
We’ll tak a cup o’kindness yet,
For days of auld lang syne.

---------------------------------------------------------
Noi due abbiamo corso sui sereni pendii e raccolto bei fiori,ma abbiamo camminato stancamente molte volte da quei tempi lontani.Abbiamo camminato a piedi nudi sulle rive dal sole del mattino fino alla sera,
ma ora gli oceani hanno ruggito da quei vecchi giorni lontani.
Eccoti la mano, mio fedele amico, e tu dammi la tua
e faremo un'abbondante bevuta ancora per i vecchi tempi.
E sarò per te come un sorso di birra, e tu lo sarai per me.
E berremo una tazza di tenerezza, ancora per i vecchi tempi andati.
Per i vecchi tempi, amico mio, per i vecchi tempi
berremo una coppa di tenerezza, ancora per i vecchi tempi.
