Ho! Ho! Ho! Its Christmas Time Guide

Ho! Ho! Ho! It's Christmas Time!

The children have been working very hard on creating this superb Christmas song - I am very proud of all their hard work and in awe of their talent!

Ronnie Gilmour (from the amazing 'James Edwyn and the Borrowed Band') and I have created this audio clip as a guide to what the song may sound like once it's all finished so please keep in mind this is NOT the final draft - we still have lots of work to do adding the children's vocals and of course some jingle bells!

 

The children will be singing all the vocal parts in the final version (my voice is only here to give you an idea of what to practice!)

Mrs Anderson's primary 2s will be singing all the parts in RED and BLUE

Mrs McKenna's Primary 3/4 class will be singing the parts in GREEN and BLUE

There are some solos and lead vocals as well - some of these will be decided on the day, others have the names of the people who will perform that part next to them below (as this is what we have practiced in school already). The lyrics on this page will always be the most up-to-date.

Happy singing! ho! ho! ho! and we will see all the amazing singer-songwriters on Tuesday at the Recording Studio with Ronnie and his team from the University of the West of Scotland!

Massive thank you to the school for supporting this voluntary music project and all those involved who have given their time to make it possible for our kids to have this great experience!

INTRO

 

Hear my little voice sing                         

Feel the joy that I can bring                    

Eyes that sparkle full of glee               

Like twinkle lights on Christmas trees.  

 

HO! HO! HO! It’s Christmas time        

HO! HO! HO! It’s Christmas time

HO! HO! HO! It’s Christmas time        

HO! HO! HO! It’s Christmas time

 

VERSE 1

 

Hear our little voices sing

(HO! HO! HO! It’s Christmas time)

Feel the joy that we can bring

(HO! HO! HO! It’s Christmas time)

Eyes that sparkle full of glee

(HO! HO! HO! It’s Christmas time) 

Like twinkle lights on Christmas trees

(HO! HO! HO! It’s Christmas time)

 

CHORUS 1

 

HO! HO! HO! Here we go! 

It’s Christmas time! It’s Christmas time!

HO! HO! HO! It’s Christmas time

Christmas time! It’s Christmas time!

HO! HO! HO! It’s Christmas time

 

VERSE 2

 

Good reports from little elves

(HO! HO! HO! It’s Christmas time)

Up there on their little shelves

(HO! HO! HO! It’s Christmas time)

Santa Clause is on his way

(HO! HO! HO! It’s Christmas time)

Reindeers pulling that big sleigh

(HO! HO! HO! It’s Christmas time)

 

CHORUS 2

HO! HO! HO! Here we go! 

It’s Christmas time! It’s Christmas time!

HO! HO! HO! It’s Christmas time

Christmas time! It’s Christmas time!

HO! HO! HO! It’s Christmas time

BRIDGE (wee rap)

Hats, scarves, gloves on ready for the snow, (Zack)

Jingle Bells! Bring the mistletoe! (Maisie)

Presents all wrapped underneath the tree, (Jamie)

Best part is being with my family (Aiden and Lewis)

CHORUS 3

 

HO! HO! HO! Here we go! 

It’s Christmas time! It’s Christmas time! HO! HO! HO! It’s Christmas time

Christmas time! It’s Christmas time! HO! HO! HO! It’s Christmas time

 

VERSE 3 (quiet then build)

 

Jesus in a manger lay (Rhys)

On the first Christmas Day (Carla)

He’s the reason we rejoice

So sing out with your BIG VOICE!            

 

CHORUS 5

 

HO! HO! HO! Here we GOOOOOOOO! (HOLD FOR 8!)

HO! HO! HO! It’s Christmas time

Christmas time! It’s Christmas time!

HO! HO! HO! It’s Christmas time

 

OUTRO (all together quietly)

 

Hear our little voices sing                  

Feel the joy that we can bring            

Eyes that sparkle full of glee             

Like twinkle lights on Christmas trees
