Track Name: Smells Like Christmas
Smells like Christmas (Magical Bells)

Falling snow
Melts on my nose
And It smells like Christmas
It feels like Christmas

Lace my boots
And off I go
And it feels like Christmas
It sounds like Christmas

Magical bells
Will ring all night
Through the roaring pines
On this sled I’ll glide
As the owls look down
And the moon comes out
On this sled I’ll ride
On this sled I’ll
Fly
Tonight

Solo: Em / G/ Em/ G
Tonight

Won’t you please come out with me
We’ll wander in our sleep
To the sleighbells of our dreams
Oh the perfect sight
The world is our tonight
Tonight

Magical bells
Will ring all night
Through the roaring pines
On our sled we’ll glide
As the owls look down
And the moon comes out
On our sled we’ll ride
On this sled we’ll
Fly
Tonight
Track Name: End of the Year
The End of the Year

It’s the end of the year, that’s all I can say

to hell with the past, let’s get on our way

bring water or wine or whiskey or beer

fill up a glass and we'll raise it in cheer

to all bright horizons shining anew

with love and good people to share them with you.

It’s the end of the year another one’s past

and if your like me then you feel a bit gassed.

maybe for better, sometimes, not sure

but it feels right tonight as we head out the door.

Dawn, Christmas morning, the tree lights the day

and shines for the New Year rolling this way,

nothing can stop it, best not to try,

so just set your rail and draw a true line

and come back tomorrow, tomorrow, and then

see what it brings, maybe a friend

to share in the feast as we sing the years end
the reaper is waiting with old father time,

laughing and singing while we walk the line

so join in the party cause whatever you do

they are just going to keep getting closer to you.

It’s the end of the year, that’s all I can say

the past is the past, let’s toast the new day

bring water or wine or whiskey or beer

fill up a glass and we'll raise it in cheer

to all bright horizons shining anew

with love and good people to share them with you.
