Track Name: Back Door Santa
they call me the back door santa
i make my runs about the break of day
they call me the back door santa
i make my runs about the break of day
i make all the little girls happy, while the boys are out to play

i ain't like the old saint nick, he don't come but once a year
i ain't like the old saint nick, he don't come but once a year
i come runnin with my presents every time they call me dear

i keep some change in my pocket
in case the children are home
i give them a couple of pennies
so we could be alone
i leave the back door open
so if anybody smells a mouse
I'd surely be in trouble
there ain't no chimney in the house

they call me the back door santa
i make my runs about the break of day
i make all the little girls happy, while all the boys are out to play
Track Name: Christmas Must Be Tonight
come down to the manger, see the little stranger
wrapped in swaddling, lo, the prince of peace
wheels start turning, torches start burning
and the old wise men journey from the East

how a little baby boy bring the people so much joy
son of a carpenter, mary carried the light
this must be christmas, must be tonight

a shepherd on a hillside, while over my flock I bide
on a cold winter night a band of angels sing
in a dream I heard a voice saying "fear not, come rejoice
it's the end of the beginning, praise the new born king"

I saw it with my own eyes, written up in the skies
but why a simple herdsmen such as I
and then it came to pass, he was born at last
right below the star that shines on high
