Track Name: (There's No War On Christmas) When Christmas Is In Your Heart
They started up with that stuff again,
I saw them on TV,
Bill and Ann and Rush and Glen,
And all their coterie.
They said that there's a battle raging,
All across the land,
And called their armies into war
But I don't understand.

‘Cause what they've all be saying,
It isn't very smart.
'Cause there's no war on Christmas,
When Christmas is in your heart.

It doesn't really matter
If you use an X or C.
I doubt that Jesus would have cared.
They both spell love to me.
So you can wish me Merry Christmas
Or Happy Holidays.
You're only saying Peace On Earth
In many different ways.

So don't let all those Grinches
Pull us all apart.
'Cause there's no war on Christmas
When Christmas is in your heart.

So don't let all those Scrooges
Pull us all apart.
'Cause there's no war on Christmas
If Christmas is in your...
If we just loved each other,
That would be a start.
'Cause there's no war on Christmas,
No, there's no war on Christmas.
I can't believe they missed this:
That Christmas is in your,
Christmas is in your,
Christmas is in your heart.

There'll be no war on Christmas this year...

(That would be nice...)

(In your heart...)
Track Name: (What's A Better Present) At Christmas Time
Another New York Christmas Eve where the empty streets are tucking me in
(Cause’ you’ve gone)
Home again for the holidays baby
But you know that loneliness is not gonna win.

Cause’ you’re mine
Yeah you’re mine
Yeah you’re mine
Oh you’re mine
And what’s a better present than that at Christmas time

My lips are chapped and broken from the East River wind blowing cold
(In the sky)
I watch the planes bound for Idlewild
I wonder where’s the one that’s bringing you home

'Cause’ you’re mine
Yeah you’re mine
Yeah you’re mine
Oh you’re mine
And what’s a better present than that at Christmas time

You know I’m working retail baby
So there ain’t much time for missing you
They say it’s like a winter wonderland
But it’s feeling more like a zoo

When I see your plane cross the Brooklyn skyline
(Yeah I’m catching a cab)
I’ll catch a cab with my heart in my hand and I’ll make straight for Terminal 5

Yeah you’re mine
Yeah you’re mine
Yeah you’re mine
Yeah you’re mine

And what’s a better present than that at Christmas time
Oh yeah baby you’re mine
Yeah you’re mine
Yeah you’re mine
Oh lord you’re mine
And I can’t wait to meet you standing in the baggage line
'Cause’ my holiday season will begin when you’re by my side
