Hello Cheyne Gang!
This week and next we have some Christmas songs for you performed by Kathy and The Merlin Academy Harmony Belles at Portmore Gardens. Kathy has provided us with lyrics to have a sing-along!
We also have a couple of festive songs from YouTube that were chosen by Anne for you to enjoy,
As we have no breathing exercises, or physical warm-ups this week or next, we would encourage you to look through previous weeks exercises. There are lots to choose from the home exercises tab but Julie's 'Feel the Fill' from Week 10, Sophie's Active Warm-up from Week 4 and Fiona's Rhythmic Exercise from Week 24 are all particularly good!
Remember to check your advent calendar today!
From Kathy Kennedy and The Merlin Academy Harmony Belles at Portmore Gardens
Special thanks to Mr and Mrs David Reid of Portmore House and Gardens
The Harmony Belles are: Rhona, Justine, Marjorie and Kate
Merry Christmas to the Cheyne Gang from Merlin Academy of Music, Melrose!
Mr. Santa – to the tune of Mr. Sandman, ( Pat Ballard ) Lyrics by The Dolls especially for The Cheyne Gang
Mr. Santa ! by : THE DOLLS
( to the tune of Mr. Sandman )
( Ho , ho, ho, ho, ho, ho, ho, ho, ho, ho, ho, ho, ho! ) repeat
Mr. Santa! Fill up your sleigh( ho, ho,ho, ho ) With lots of goodies to come our way( ho, ho, ho, ho)
We’ll be asleep before you get here/ we’ll leave a light on to guide your reindeer!
Mr. Santa – come down the chim-nee ( ho, ho, ho, ho) And leave some presents around the tree/ Such a bu-sy Christmas Eve! Mr. Santa, yes, we believe!
Mr. Santa - please stop right here ( ho, ho, ho, ho )
We’ve tried real hard to be good all year ( ho, ho, ho, ho)
We’ll bake you scones and maybe some sweet jam
Put your feet up and enjoy a wee-dram!
Mr. Santa, make OUR –dreams-come-true ( ho, ho, ho, ho)
You- must- know- that we believe in you, oh what a busy Christmas Eve: Mr. Santa, yes, we believe!
Mr. Santa ( Ye-e-e-s? ) We think you’re cute ( ho, ho, ho, ho)
You look so handsome in your big red suit ( ho, ho, ho, ho)
We just can’t wait for midnight to come ’round – we’ll listen out for those jingle-bell sounds!
Mr. Santa – you make us smile, come down the chimney and tarry a-while
Oh, what a busy Christmas Eve! Mr. Santa Cutie, Sweet, sweet, Santa – Mr. Santa, yes, we BELIEVE!
Mele Kalikimaka – a Hawaiian-themed Christmas Song written by: Robert Alex Anderson
Mele Kalikimaka is the thing to say
On a bright Hawaiian Christmas Day
That’s the Island greeting that we send to you
From the land where palm trees sway
Here we know that Christmas will be green and bright
The sun to shine by day and all the stars at night
Mele Kalikimaka is Hawaii’s way to say:
Merry Christmas to you!
( repeat )
And here are Anne's picks from YouTube.
