Xmas Time In Jessup I'm stuck here in prison behind these old brick walls Down here by the railroad tracks where Jessup made his cut He took two hundred thousand tons of clay to clear them Made the walls too high for happy Christmas nights It's Christmas time in Jessup. We're all locked up at the Cut. Barbwire hangs instead of Christmas lights [last time to outro] I'm hunkered down in a jail cell. And no one gives a shit. My lawyer's on vacation, can't get me out of it. OUTRO: ...in prison here tonight. Why I shot that man in Fells Point anyone can understands I caught him with my lover and it changed all my plans Instead of Christmas Stockings I got prison socks and bread. Bad meat loaf in the oven bad thoughts inside my head. Now I am such an woman and I'll never see the light. That man I shot in Fells Point... wasn't worth the fight. The girl she up and married Now my lawyer's second wife. Another lonely Christmas … for me tonight. © 2016 winkte music/ascap

Christmas Without You It wouldn't be Christmas without a little snow It wouldn't be Christmas without ribbons and bows Pretty packages wrapped up, Christmas time is near But it won't be like Christmas with out you here. It wouldn't be Christmas without lights on the tree Bright red, green and blue ones for reindeer to see Little children singing, voices full of good cheer But it won't be like Christmas with out you here. Bridge: We'll all be waiting all eyes on the door. Anticipating your smile once more. It won't feel like Christmas in our little town tonight. No holiday wishes any joy or delight We wait for your arrival. And wish a healthy New Year, But it won't feel like Christmas with out you here. Tag: How do we get through this Christmas with out you here? Georgie Jessup Mauler © 2016 winkte music

Dear Santa 02:35
Dear Santa Dear Santa, don’t want no train. Dear Santa, I don’t need a plane. Dear Santa, please cut me some slack, All I want for Christmas is my baby back Dear Santa, I got everything I need. Dear Santa, I’m down on my knees. Dear Santa, please cut me some slack, All I want for Christmas is my baby back. I miss that lovin'. It was oh so good! I miss that lovin' . I should have knocked on wood. And now I miss it every night, I’m hoping Mr. Clause you'll bring it back tonight! Dear Santa, My baby knows how to walk. Dear Santa, My baby knows how to talk. Dear Santa, please cut me some slack, All I want for Christmas is my baby back. Dear Santa, I'll try not to pout. Dear Santa, Don't make me shout. Dear Santa, please cut me some slack, All I want for Christmas is my baby back… Georgie Jessup Mauler © 2016 winkte music

When Santa Was A Pagan When Santa was a pagan we had so much fun We danced around the fire until we saw the sun The moon was full and glowing as we danced under the light When Santa was a pagan we danced all through the night When Santa was a pagan our life was filled with joy We ate the sacred mushroom no cheap commercial toys We stopped to smell the cedar embrace the Mystery When Santa was a pagan we worshiped at the Tree When Santa was a pagan all the children sang They danced and sang and worshiped and never saw their shame Rome stole away our Christmas and left us with the blame When Santa was a pagan the devil stole his name The world is filled with trouble and all of life's a sin Or so they try to tell us the sin is being pagan So now we all got Christmas but the spirit burns like gas When Santa was a pagan...
