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 take a cup of kindness yet For days of auld lang syne

Snowmen sleeping on the lawn No one is getting on Oh what could it mean? Well it's Christmas again, in Calfornia Icicles hanging from every house It's 100 degrees! But it's Christmas again, in California Christmas is supposed to be a very merry time of year But how can I get any shopping done with all this Christmas jeer? I have never seen a line this long There's just something wrong When it's Christmas again, in California Christmas is supposed to be a very merry time of year But how can I get any shopping done with all this Christmas jeer? Oh oh oh... Lives are lost over a parking spot Can't we all just get along? Cause it's Christmas again, in California But everyone that's on the 101 has got a gun There's nothing to fear! When it's Christmas again, in California You'll never ever miss a Christmas in California You'll never ever miss a Christmas in California You'll never ever miss a Christmas in California You'll never believe there's an isthmus in California You'll never ever... You'll never ever miss a Christmas in California

It came upon the midnight clear That glorious song of old From angels bending near the earth To touch their harps of gold Peace on the Earth, goodwill to men From heaven's all-gracious King The world in solemn stillness lay To hear the angels sing

O come, O come, Emmanuel And ransom captive Israel That mourns in lonely exile here Until the son of God appear Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel Shall come to thee, O Israel O come thou wisdom from on high And order all things far and nigh To us the path of knowledge show And cause us in her ways to go Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel Shall come to thee, O Israel O come desire of nations bind All peoples in one heart and mind Bid envy, strife, and quarrels cease Fill the whole world with heaven’s peace Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel Shall come to thee, O Israel O come thou dayspring come and cheer Our spirits by thine advent here Disperse the gloomy clouds of night And death's dark shadows put to flight Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel Shall come to thee, O Israel

I've been waiting here for so long Just to watch you go I've been dreaming of the scene when You come running home So run back to me Come on home to West Covina Come on home to West Covina Come on home to West Covina town Come on home to West Covina Come on home to West Covina Come on home to West Covina town Where there's Christmas times in every Christmas times in every month In every month Christmas times in every... Christmas times in every month In every month Christmas times in every month

Christmas is cruel when you're not around And I don't know what else I can say But I'd sure like to see your face today But things can be so cruel on Christmas Christmas was cool when you were around And I took you to see all the lights in town And if only they could see you now But things can be so cruel on Christmas Things can be so cruel on Christmas Day Why'd you have to go on Christmas Day? Why'd you have to go?

Toyland, Toyland Little girl and boy land While you dwell within it You are ever happy there Childhood's joy-land Mystic merry Toyland Once you pass its borders You can never return again

about

At long last, the long awaited complete and definitive version of "Christmas on the Sofa" is finally here! Rejoice!

Heavily inspired by The Beach Boys' Christmas Album, "Christmas on the Sofa" is a mixture of traditional and original holiday songs full of both joy and melancholy alike. Specifically recognizing the sorrow that can sometimes come with the holidays, it is a virtual warm hug for those that need it most this time of year.

Happy holidays everyone! Sofa City Sweetheart loves you!
