Track Name: The OnQ Ensemble - Soulful Noel
CHORUS:
I can feel the anticipation
All the people are filled with elation
Gotta a reason to celebrate
It's a Soulful Noel

Peace, Joy and Elevation
Every boy, every girl, every Nation
Come together in one accord
It's a Soulful Noel

Verse 1:
The Season is upon us
It's my favorite time of year
The gift of Love endows us
Everyone is full of cheer
All my family and friends convening
Everything is fine
We give thanks
Cause God has been so kind

CHORUS:
I can feel the anticipation
All the people are filled with elation
Gotta a reason to celebrate
It's a Soulful Noel

Peace, Joy and Elevation
Every boy, every girl, every Nation
Come together in one accord
It's a Soulful Noel

Verse 2:
I smell that tasty goodness
As it lingers in the air
My Grand Ma sets the table
And the begins the meal with prayer
There's a feast that's made for Kings and Queens
We're all feeling divine
Life is precious
It's such a special time

CHORUS:
I can feel the anticipation
All the people are filled with elation
Gotta a reason to celebrate
It's a Soulful Noel

Peace, Joy and Elevation
Every boy, every girl, every Nation
Come together in one accord
It's a Soulful Noel

Your faith and congregation
Doesn't matter, we're all in relation
Hanukkah and Kwanzaa too
It's a Soulful Noel

Yes, you and your persuasion
All are welcome no matter your station
There's hope for one and all
It's a Soulful Noel

Verse 3:
We can't forget the needy
As we go about our way
Cause surely we can all see
How they struggle day to day
If we all give just a portion
Of the blessings we've procured
We could change lives
And help someone endure

CHORUS:
I can feel the anticipation
All the people are filled with elation
Gotta a reason to celebrate
It's a Soulful Noel

Peace, Joy and Elevation
Every boy, every girl, every Nation
Come together in one accord
It's a Soulful Noel

Your faith and congregation
Doesn't matter, we're all in relation
Hanukkah and Kwanzaa too
It's a Soulful Noel

Yes, you and your persuasion
All are welcome no matter your station
There's hope for one and all
It's a Soulful Noel
Track Name: TRS - I Love Christmas
I LOVE CHRISTMAS
IT’S MY FAVORITE TIME OF THE YEAR
PEOPLE LAUGHING SPREADING LOTS OF JOY AND GOOD CHEER

THE CHILDREN ARE PLAYING THE CAROLERS SINGING
THE CHRISTMAS SPIRITS FEELS THE AIR
THE LIGHTS ARE ALL GLISTENING THE WIND IS A WHISTLING
A SURE SIGN THAT CHRISTMAS IS HERE

I LOVE CHRISTMAS IT’S MY FAVORITE TIME OF THE YEAR
TIME FOR FAMILY
THEY TRAVEL FROM FAR AND NEAR
PRESENTS EXCHANGING THE MUSIC IS PLAYING
STEALING KISSES UNDER MISTLETOE
THE CRACKLING FIRE THE TASTE OF HOT CIDER
REMINDS ME OF DAYS LONG AGO…

I LOVE CHRISTMAS IT’S MY FAVORITE TIME OF THE YEAR
PEOPLE LAUGHING SPREADING LOTS OF JOY AND GOOD CHEER
I LOVE CHRISTMAS
ITS MY FAVORITE TIME OF THE YEAR
Track Name: The OnQ Ensemble - Hey You
Verse I:
(Hey You)
Lead: Hey You
I'm talking to you
I got a whole lot on my mind

Don't always have a clue
But, best believe, I got a rhythm

The Holidays, they puzzle me
'Suppose to be good will and cheer

But the homeless roam the streets
While we're grinning from ear to ear

Shopping for gifts and toys
While the poor they long for more

We gotta show some charity
Now ain't that what the seasons for

Chorus I:
Distracted by commercialism of the Holidays (Hey you)
The sales, the bargains, weekend clearance, they consume our days (Hey you)
The pressure to gift everybody
Just becomes a chore (Hey you)
Your credit debt & lavish gifts
Won't make them love you more

Verse II:
(Hey you)
Every Christmas, Hanukkah even on Kwanzaa, it's the same

We come together for a time
We celebrate but where's the change

While we're sipping on eggnog
Somewhere a child just missed a meal

Gang violence on the streets
Children with guns, let's keep it real

Call it legalized slavery
The private prisons and jails

Putting up your Christmas tree
While a community lives in Hell

Chorus II:
Peace on Earth
Good will toward men
That's what we sing about
(Hey you)
But we forget the underprivileged
As they live without (Hey you)
We close our eyes to the condition
Of disease & war (Hey you)
The greed, the hate, division, fear
What are we fighting for (Hey you)

It's time to put our faith in action on this Holiday (Hey you)
Cause what defines us
Are our actions not just what we say (Hey you)
The rich are getting richer
And the poor are losing game
(Hey you)
Let's take responsibility
Instead of placing blame

Verse III:
(Hey You)
Lead: Hey You
I'm talking to you
I got a whole lot on my mind

Don't always have a clue
But, best believe, I got a rhythm

The Holidays, they puzzle me
'Suppose to be good will and cheer

But the homeless roam the streets
While we're grinning from ear to ear

Shopping for gifts and toys
While the poor they long for more

We gotta show some charity
Now ain't that what the seasons for

Hey you
Hey you
Hey you
Hey you
