Hit Pause for Santa Claus

Hey, hey, gimme a
minute,
Ya hear?

Hit Pause for Santa Claus,

I spend all year
Getting all the toys in gear
Show me some Christmas cheer.

Hear, hear,

Hit Pause for Santa Claus,

Ain’t askin’ you to stop your career,
Wanna make that very clear,
Just show me some Christmas cheer.

Hey, hey, honey chile’
Cantcha chill for a while?

Hit Pause for Santa Claus,

Let go of that hectic lifestyle,
C’mon, toss that office file
Shine on a big ole smile
Is all I ask with no guile.

Hit Pause for Santa Claus

Hey, that ain’t crampin’ your style,
Do somethin’ fun before you go senile;
Smile, smile, long as a mile.

It’s Christmas time in the city,
In the country,
In the valley,
So let’s have a pep rally

For Christmas merry, merry

Hit Pause for Santa Claus

Let’s all be jolly,
Stop and smell the holly.

Hit Pause for Santa Claus

So we can all have a merry, merry

CHRISTMAS

Ghouls Gone Wild

The bash is a smash,
So much laughter and banter,
Endless libation and flirtation.

Ghouls gone wild . . .

Dracula dares to juggle for muggles,
While the mummy enjoys stuffing his tummy,
Leaving Frankenstein alone to zip through a line.

Ghouls gone wild. . .

There’s Michael Myers bragging his blade is sharper than Freddy Krueger’s,
Off in a corner is Pinhead trying to hook up with the walking dead,
And here’s Chucky who’s nobody’s doll and way too ugly for the cabinet of Dr. Caligari.

Today’s Halloween, when ghouls gone wild.

The Empress of Soul

Gladys Knight graced the stage tonight, singing among others, her most notable songs:

  • Midnight Train to Georgia
  • If I Were Your Woman
  • Neither One of Us (Wants to be the First One to Say Good-bye)
  • I’ve Got to Use My Imagination
  • I Heard it Through the Grapevine
  • Best Thing that Ever Happened to Me
  • Help Me Make it Through the Night

She didn’t look her age of 73. Her voice sounded as good as when she was a decade or so younger. Excellent performance!
