White Christmas
Song by Irving Berlin. 1940.

The sun in shining, the grass is green,
The orange and palm trees sway.
There’s never been such a day in Beverly Hills, L.A.
But it’s December, the twenty-fourth,
And I am longing to be up North.

Chorus:
I’m dreaming of a White Christmas
Just like the ones I used to know
Where the tree-tops glisten
And children listen
to hear sleigh bells in the snow.
I’m dreaming of a White Christmas
With every CHRISTMAS CARD I write
“May your days be merry and bright
And may all your Christmases be white.

My mother recalls the time when both my brother and youngest sister lost their front teeth at about the same time, so they sang this song at Christmas time during an Sunday evening service. Wouldn’t it be so cute to have closeup’s of your children’s toothless grin in a scrapbook next to this song?

All I Want for Christmas Is My Two Front Teeth.
Song by Don Gardner.

Everybody stops and stares at me
These two teeth are gone as you can see
I don’t know just who to blame for this catastrophe!
But my one wish on Christmas Eve is as plain as it can be!

Chorus:
All I want for Christmas is My Two Front Teeth,
My two front teeth, see my two front teeth!
Gee, if I could only have my two front teeth,
Then I could wish you, “Merry Christmas”
It seems so long since I could say,
“Sister Susie sitting on a thistle!”
Gosh oh gee, how happy I’d be,
If I could only whistle – (thhh).
All I want for Christmas is My Two Front Teeth,
My two front teeth, see my two front teeth.
Gee, if I could only have my two front teeth,
Then I could wish you “Merry Christmas!”

Paper Doll.
Song by Johnny S. Black. 1915.

I’m goin’ to buy a Paper Doll that I can call my own,
A doll that other fellows cannot steal.
And then the flirty, flirty guys with their flirty, flirty eyes,
Will have to flirt with dollies that are real.
When I come home at night she will be waiting,
She’ll be the truest doll in all this world.
I’d rather have a Paper Doll to call my own,
Than have a fickleminded real live girl.
