ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
These songs were written, and based on, my own twisted vision---my strange and fictitious view of relationships and the Christmas and Holiday Season, and as such are weird, sad, fun, and demented. I really hope you enjoy them as much as I do singing them!



SONG LYRICS:

CHRISTMAS TREE BOOGIE
© Hilary F. Marckx, BMI, all rights reserved

GET A CHRISTMAS TREE LIGHT, GET A CHRISTMAS TREE STAR,
GET A CHRISTMAS TREE OR YOU WON’T GET VERY FAR

IT’S THE CHRISTMAS TREE BOOGIE;
IT’S THE CHRISTMAS TREE BOOGIE;
IT’S THE CHRISTMAS TREE BOOGIE’
BOOGIE WOOGIE, BOOGALOO

OUT IN THE FOREST, BUT I DON’T CARE,
I SAW A DOUG FIR DANCING IN ITS UNDERWEAR.

GOING DOWN THE FREEWAY DOING NINETY-FIVE;
GOT PASSED BY SANTA TRYIN’ TO STAY ALIVE.

I GOT MY CHRISTMAS TREE GAL, AND SHE’S GOT ME,
AND WE’RE MAKIN’ SWEET LOVE NEATH THE CHRISTMAS TREE.


ROCKABILLY REBEL
© Hilary F. Marckx, all rights reserved

I’M A ROCKABILLY REBEL, IN A CHRISTMAS SPELL
I’M A ROCKABILLY REBEL, IN A CHRISTMAS SPELL
OL’ SANTA CAST A DOOZY, NOW I’M FEELIN’ BETTER THAN SWELL.

SOAP ON A ROPE, AND SWANK COLOGNE,
MOHAIR SWEATER, AND MISTLETOE
I GOT A HOT ROD PLYMOUTH, AND A WAD ON MON
AND A ROCKABILLY HON TO SPEND SOME ON

MY TREE IS BRIGHT WITH TINSEL AND LIGHTS,
MY ROCKABILLY RECORDS ARE SHAKIN’ THE NIGHT
ROCKABILLY SUZIE IS LIT UP, TOO,
I’M A ROCKABILLY REBEL BOPPIN’ THE BLUES.


CHRISTMAS CAROLS, CHRISTMAS LIES
© Hilary F. Marckx, BMI, all rights reserved

CHRISTMAS CAROLS, CHRISTMAS LIES
I THOUGHT WE’D SING FOR ALL OF TIME
WE SANG THE GREEN OF CHRISTMAS RHYMES
WE SANG NIGHT’S COLD, WITH NO SUNRISE,

CHRISTMAS CAROLS, CHRISTMAS LIES
OUR WORDS WERE MADE OF LOVE THAT DIED
RHYTHMS LOST NOT REALIZED
BEAUTY LOST IN LOVE’S DEMISE.

CHRISTMAS CAROLS, CHRISTMAS LIES
THE CAROL LOVE COULD NEVER HIDE
I CRY ALONE THIS CHRISTMAS-TIME
THIS CHRISTMAS THAT YOU SAID GOODBY

CHRISTMAS CAROLS, CHRISTMAS LIES
YOU SANG ME SONGS THAT MADE ME CRY
YOU SANG ME GONE, OF LOVE THAT FLIES
CHRISTMAS CAROLS, CHRISTMAS LIES


GREEN-BUTTER BROWNIES
© Hilary F. Marckx, BMI, all rights reserved

CHRISTMAS EVE OF SIXTY-SEVEN WE WERE ALL JUST A LITTLE HIGH,
DONE A HOOKAH FULL OF NOTHING BUT SOME STUFF THAT WAS JUST SO FINE.
WHEN SOMEONE STOPPED TO ASK THE QUESTION WE HAD NEVER, EVER, THOUGHT TO ASK,
IF SANTA MIGHT LIKE A BROWNIE IF WE BAKED SOME UP REAL FAST.
SO WE GRABBED A QUART OF GREEN BUTTER WE’D BEEN SAVIN FOR SOMETHING LIKE THAT.
THE FINEST THAT WE HAD EVER BREWED UP AND WE KNEW THAT IT WOULD LAST
SANTA FROM OUR CHIMNEY TOP BACK TO THE OLD NORTH POLL
WE WENT TO WORK AND MIXED UP THE BEST BROWNIES YOU COULD BEHOLD

GREEN-BUTTER BROWNIES, GREEN-BUTTER BROWNIES.
GOOD FOR ALL THAT AILS YOU AND GOOD TASTIN’, TOO,
GREEN-BUTTER BROWNIES, GREEN-BUTTER BROWNIES.
WON’T JUST GET YOU HIGH, THEY’LL PARALYZE YOU.
GREEN-BUTTER BROWNIES, GREEN-BUTTER BROWNIES.
BETTER GET A HAND-FULL, DON’T SETTLE FOR A FEW
GREEN-BUTTER BROWNIES, GREEN-BUTTER BROWNIES.
JUST WHAT THE DOCTOR ORDERED FOR YOU

WE MADE ‘EM UP AND LAID ‘EM OUT WITH A QUART OF JIMMY BEAM,
A QUALITY CHECK THEN WE TRUNDLED OURSELVES UP, AND OFF TO SLEEP.
JUST IMAGINE OUR AMAZEMENT IN THE MORNING WHEN WE FOUND
OLD SANTA DESTROYED BY OUR FIREPLACE ALL PARALYZED AND STONED
HE HAD SLOBBERED ALL OVER OUR CARPET, AND DROOLED UPON HIS CHIN
HAD JUSTA SMALL LITTLE ACCIDENT, ‘CAUSE HE COULDN’T QUITE HOLD IT IN
HE’D MADE ‘BOUT HALF HIS DELIVERIES, TIL HE WAS SABOTAGED THAT NIGHT,
AND AT THE REST OF THE HOUSES PAST OUR HOUSE THE KIDDIES JUST CRIED AND CRIED.


ROCKIN’ THROUGH THE HOLIDAYS
© Hilary F. Marckx, BMI, all rights reserved

THERE’S CHANUKAH, CHRISTMAS, AND QUANZA LIGHTS
WE’RE DANCIN’ SLOW, AND HOLDIN’ TIGHT

WE’RE ROCKIN’, ROCKIN’ THROUGH THE HOLIDAYS
ROCKIN’, ROCKIN’ THROUGH THE HOLIDAYS.

IT’S A CHRISTMAS GROOVE EVERYWHERE WE GO
ACTIN’ LIKE KIDS AND PLAYIN’ IN THE SNOW

BUNDLED IN SWEATERS AND STOCKING CAPS
GALOSHES AND GLOVES AND THINGS LIKE THAT

IT’S JUST US FOLKS AND WE’RE HAVING FUN
SINGIN’ CHRISTMAS CAROLS SIPPIN’ BUTTERED RUM

THERE’S MISTLETOE AND ONE THING’S CLEAR
I’LL GET A KISS BEFORE WE LEAVE FROM HERE

STARS IN THE SKY THAT LIGHT YOUR EYES
I’VE GOT YOUR LOVE AND YOU’VE GOT MINE


ROCKABILLY CHRISTMAS TIME
© Hilary F. Marckx, BMI, all rights reserved


I WANNA ROCKABILLY CHRISTMAS, ROCKABILLY CHRISTMAS-TIME
ROCKABILLY CHRISTMAS, WITH THAT ROCKABILLY GAL OF MINE
ROCKA ROCKABILLY, CHRISTMAS TREE CHRISTMAS-TIME

ROCKABILLY BABY, BABY’S JUST SO FINE
ROCKABILLY HONEY, HONEY’S MINE ALL MINE,
ROCKABILLY PRETTY, DANCIN’ BY MY CHRISTMAS TREE
ROCKABILLY SWEETY, MY O ME, SHE’S MY CHRISTMAS TREAT.

BE BOP BETTY, AND LONG TALL SALLY DON’T MAKE MY CHRISTMAS FINE
SWEET GEORGIA BROWN DON’T MAKE IT FOR CHRISTMAS RHYME
ROCKABILLY BABY’S THAT CHRISTMAS-TIME BABY OF MINE.


CACTUS CHRISTMAS TREE
© Hilary F. Marckx, BMI, all rights reserved

LONG AGO, OUT ON THE DESERT, ON A CHRISTMAS EVE ALONE
A LONELY COWBOY MADE HIS CAMP SO FAR FROM HOME
THERE WAS ONE STAR IN THE SKY SHINING BRIGHTLY
ON SOME COW CHIPS, SOME DRY GRASS,
AND HIS CACTUS CHRISTMAS TREE

IT WAS CHRISTMAS, AND THE COWBOY
MADE HIS CHRISTMAS WISH ALONE
FOR HIS LOVE SO FAR AWAY
IN CALIFORNIA’S STOCKTON TOWN
“MAY THIS STAR THAT SHINES SO BRIGHTLY
ON MY CACTUS CHRISTMAS TREE
FIND HER WELL AND WARM AND SAFE
WHILE SHE’S HOME NOT HERE WITH ME.

HE TOOK SOME DRY GRASS FOR THE TINSEL
HE DID NOT HAVE TO MATCH HER EYES
AND A COW CHIP FOR HIS ORNAMENT TO HANG BENEATH THE SKY.
IT WAS SIMPLE, HE WAS HUMBLE, LOOKING TO THAT STAR ABOVE,
HE OFFERED THANKS FOR HIS CACTUS CHRISTMAS TREE
AND FOR HIS LOVE.


ANGEL-WINGS IN THE SNOW
© Hilary F. Marckx, BMI, all rights reserved

ANGEL-WINGS IN THE SNOW
CHRISTMAS LIGHTS ALL AGLOW
WE’RE OUT WALKING HAND IN HAND
SINGERS CAROL THROUGHOUT THE LAND
A KISS BENEATH THE MISTLE TOE
WE’RE HOLDING TIGHT, DON’T WANT TO GO
HOME TONIGHT AND ALL ALONE
OUR LOVE WANTS MORE AND MORE AND MORE

I WANT MY ANGEL-WINGS TONIGHT
PLEASE STAY WITH ME, IT SEEMS SO RIGHT
I KNOW YOU SAY YOU NEED TO GO
BUT STAY WITH ME I LOVE YOU SO.


SANTA IS A-ROCKIN’
© Hilary F. Marckx, BMI, all rights reserved

SANTA IS A-ROCKIN’ AND HE’S BOPPIN’ ALL OVER THE WORLD.
I SAID SANTA IS A ROCKIN’ AND HE’S BOPPIN’ ALL OVER THE WORLD
IT’S A BE BOP SANTA, WITH GOODIES FOR THE BOYS AND GIRLS

SANTA’S GOT A SLEIGH AND IT’S FULL OF GOODIES AND TOYS.
YEAH, SANTA’S GOT A SLEIGH AND IT’S FULL OF GOODIES AND TOYS.
HE’S ROCKIN’ ‘ROUND THE PLANET, FOR ALL YOU GIRLS AND BOYS.

HE’S GOT SOME CANDY, GOT A TRAIN SET, TOO
WITH DONDER AND BLITZEN AND RUDOLPH TOO,
HE’S GOT BLUE SUEDE SHOES, AND SOME RED BLUE JEANS,
YEAH HE’S ROCKIN’ ‘ROUND THE WORLD AND HE’S MAKIN’ THE SCENE

YEAH, ROCKIN’ ROLLIN’ SANTA IS HITTIN’ YOUR HOUSE TONIGHT
ROCKIN’ ROLLIN’ SANTA IS HITTIN’ YOUR HOUSE TONIGHT
SO, LEAVE HIM OUT SOME GOODIES, ‘CAUSE SANTA’S REALLY ROCKIN’ IT RIGHT


SILVER HOPES AND SILVER DREAMS
© Hilary F. Marckx, BMI, all rights reserved

SILVER BELLS ON THE TREE,
SILVER SPARKLES ALL SO BRIGHT
SILVER STAR IN MY HEART,
WISHIN’ FOR YOU WITH ALL MY MIGHT
SILVER MOON UP ABOVE,
SILVER LOST AND SILVER GONE
SILVER CHRISTMAS STARS TONIGHT,
BUT YOU LEFT ME ALONE

SILVER HOPES AND SILVER DREAMS
SILVER LININGS SILVER THINGS
SILVER HEART THAT’S BROKE, IN TWO
SILVER TEARS JUST FOR YOU.
SILVER STRINGS ON MY GUITAR
SILVER PLAYS A BROKEN SONG
SILVER’S COLD WHEN YOU ARE GONE.
SILVER MAKES ME SO ALONE
