Time Of The Year Song lyrics

All songs arranged and produced by Livingstone Brown and Maxi Priest


Let Them In

Now this is the season
Love is the reason
Why folks gather round
It’s Christmas time

Joy bells are ringing
And children are singing
Songs that warm your heart
It’s Christmas time
Let them in, let them in
Let them in, let them in
Let them in

When love comes knocking
You hear carols singing
See the joy through the window
Smile on their faces
It’s Christmas time

Let them in, let them in

Snowflakes are falling
It’s Christmas time
Let them in, let them in
Let them in

It was a nice Christmas morning
When Savannah comes knocking
Daddy wake up, it’s Christmas time
There’s presents for the giving
And presents to be opened
It’s Christmas time
Lots of hugs and kisses
As we make our wishes
Fireworks cracking, love in the kitchen
It’s Christmas time
Let them in, let them in

(Chorus)

Have a reggae reggae Christmas
That’s what we wish you
What a beautiful sound
It’s Christmas time
Share love with your neighbour
Let it bloom like a flower
You’ll never see me down
When Christmas comes around
When Christmas comes around
Let them in, let them in
Let them in, let them in


I As a King

I as a King have followed the star
Respect and love straight from the heart
Fields and mountains
The world I’ve travelled
Following the glowing star

Star of wonder, star of night
Star of royal beauty light
Still proceeding always believing
Guide us forever more
Born is the King that gives to the world
Straight from Zion, love is the word
Praises forever and ever and ever
He reigns over us all

Star of wonder, star of night
Star of royal beauty light
Still proceeding always believing
Guide us forever more
Guide us forever more

My love, my heart is all that I have
Sharing the joys humanity has
Give praise to the father
Love to each other
Following the glowing star

Star of wonder, star of night
Star of royal beauty light
Still proceeding always believing
Guide us forever more
Yes he does
Guide us forever more


What a Wonderful World

I see trees of green
Red roses too
I see them bloom, for me and for you
And I say to myself
What a wonderful world
I see skies are blue
Clouds of white
Bright blessed days
Dark sacred nights
And I say to myself
What a wonderful world

The colours of the rainbow
So pretty in the skies
Also on the faces of people going by
I see friends shaking hands
Saying how do you do
But they’re really saying
I love you

I hear babies crying
I watch them grow
They’ll have much more
Than I’ll ever know
And I say to myself
What a wonderful world
I say to myself
What a wonderful world
Yes it is


My Favourite Things

Building a snowman
Laughing and playing
Shopping and choosing
Gifts for the giving
Smiling and singing old carol songs
These are a few of my favourite things

Stardust is falling down from the sky
Dreaming of magic all through the night
I hear all the laughter
I love what it brings
These are a few of my favourite things

When it’s midnight, when it’s midnight
And the clock strikes
And the clock strikes
We count down from ten
We simply forget
Leave our worries behind
And what will the new year bring
Bright lights and colours
Moonlight and dancing
Music is playing, love and romancing
Sharing and caring, family and friends
These are a few of my favourite things

Sit by the fire, candles for memories
Shelters for homeless
Warmth from the coldness
Together we pray
As the church bells they ring
These are a few of my favourite things

When the clock strikes
When the clock strikes
And it’s midnight, midnight
We count down from ten
We simply forget
Leave our worries behind
And what will the new year bring

These are a few of my favourite things

Merry Christmas Baby

Merry Christmas baby
You sure do treat me nice
Merry Christmas baby
You sure do feel so right
You gave me all this love for Christmas
You make me feel like I’m in paradise
It feels mighty fine baby
We got music on the radio
And me and you together baby
Wrapped up all night long
Said I feel like I’m gonna kiss you baby
Underneath the mistletoe

I said Merry Christmas baby
You sure do treat me nice
Merry Christmas baby
You sure do feel so right
You’re the best thing
I got for Christmas baby
And I’m gonna love you
For the rest of my life

Merry Christmas baby
You gave me all this good love
For Christmas
Makes me feel like I’m in paradise
Merry Christmas baby
You sure look good tonight
I said Merry Christmas baby
Your love is out of sight
You gave me all this good love for Christmas baby
Makes me feel like I’m in paradise

I said Merry Christmas baby
It sure feels good tonight
I said Merry Christmas baby
You sure do treat me nice
I hear jingle bells ringing
In the sweetest melody

I said Merry Christmas baby
You sure do treat me nice
You sure do treat me nice
Merry Christmas baby
You sure do feel so right


Time Of The Year

It’s that time of the year
To share some love
Time of the year
To spread joy
It’s that time of the year
To spread some love
Time of the year to share joy
Bells are ringing, people smiling
Folks are singing and everyone is happy
And feeling joy
Snow is falling, fire is burning
And kisses under the mistletoe
And I got this present for you baby
And ain’t that what this time is for

One glass of Champagne for you baby
And two, you’re my sip of sherry amour!

It’s that time of the year to spread some love
It’s that time of the year to share some joy
It’s that time of the year to spread some love
It’s that time of the year to share some joy
Let’s light a candle and stand by the tree
Play some music baby won’t you dance with me

Happy New Year to you baby
I’m wishing you joy
Lets celebrate this time together baby
Right here, right now, I’m yours

(Chorus)

Baby let’s go outside and say hello to the snowman
Cuddle in the cold
Listen to the children sing their carol songs
Cause everybody, everybody, everybody, everybody knows
(Chorus to fade)

Jingle Belles

Dashing through the snow
In a one horse open sleigh
Over fields we go
Laughing all the way
Bells on bobtails ring
Making spirits bright
What fun it is to laugh and sing
On a sleighing song tonight

Jingle bells, jingle bells
Jingle all the way
Oh what fun it is to ride
On a one horse open sleigh, hey
Jingle bells, jingle bells
Jingle all the way
Oh what it is to ride
On a one horse open sleigh
One horse open sleigh
(Tag)
It’s fun time, it’s Christmas time
Here we are again
It’s giving time, it’s sharing time
Love is in the air

Oh, jingle bells, jingle bells
Jingle all the way
Oh what fun it is to ride
On a one horse open sleigh, hey
Jingle bells, jingle bells
Jingle all the way
Oh what it is to ride

(Verse 1 repeat)

(Chorus)

(Tag repeat x2)

Oh jingle bells, jingle bells
Jingle all the way
Oh what fun it is to ride
On a one horse open sleigh, hey
Jingle bells, jingle bells
Jingle all the way
Oh what it is to ride

Jingle bells, jingle bells
Jingle all the way
Oh what fun it is to ride
On a one horse open sleigh, hey
Jingle bells, jingle bells
Jingle all the way
Oh what it is to ride
Oh what it is to ride
Oh what it is to ride
On a one horse open sleigh

Do You Hear What I Hear?

Said the night wind to the little lamb
Do you see what I see?
Way up in the sky little lamb
Do you see what I see ?

A star, a star
Dancing in the night
With a tail as big as a kite
With a tail as big as a kite

Said the little lamb to the shepherd boy
Do you hear what I hear ?
Ringing through the sky shepherd boy
Do you hear what I hear ?
A song, a song
High above the trees
With a voice as big as the sea
With a voice as big as the sea

Said the shepherd boy
To the mighty King
Do you know what I know?
In your palace wall mighty King
Do you know what I know ?
A child, a child
Shivers in the cold
Let us bring him into the fold
Let us bring him out of the cold

Said the King to the people everywhere
Listen to what I say
Pray for peace people everywhere
Listen to what I say
The child, the child
Sleeping in the night
He will bring us goodness and light
He will bring us goodness and light Goodness and light
Goodness and light


Happy Xmas (War Is over)

So this is Christmas
And what have you done?
Another year’s over
And a new one’s just begun
So this is Christmas
And I hope you had fun
The near and the dear ones
The old and the young
A very Merry Christmas
And a Happy New Year
Let’s hope it’s a good one
Without any fears

So this is Christmas
For the weak and the strong
For the rich and the poor ones
The war is too long
So Happy Christmas
For black and for white
For yellow and red ones
Let’s stop the fight
A very Merry Christmas
And a Happy New Year
Let’s hope it’s a good one
Without any fears

So this is Christmas
And what have we done
Another year’s over
And a new one’s just begun
So Happy Christmas
I hope you had fun
The near and the dear ones
The old and the young
A very Merry Christmas
And a Happy New Year
Let’s hope it’s a good one
Without any fears

So this is Christmas
And what have we done
Another year’s over
And a new one’s just begun
So this is Christmas
And what have we done
Another year’s over
And a new one’s just begun
So this is Christmas
And what have we done
Another year’s over
And a new one’s just begun
So this is Christmas

Silent Night

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
Glorious streams from Heaven afar
Heavenly hosts sing Hallelujah
Christ our Saviour is born
Christ our Saviour is born

Silent night, Holy night
Son of God, loves pure light
Radiant beam from thy Holy face
With the dawn of redeeming grace
Jesus, Lord at thy birth
Jesus, Lord at thy birth
