Home Exercises: Week 36

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

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

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.
