Lyrics Challenge: Christmas Edition Name the songs these lines come from.
1. Go it while you're young
2. Like a pumpkin's head
3. Stood a lowly cattle shed
4. Everybody out there been good, or what?
5. The world is so wrong
6. Make the Yuletide gay
7. A duplex, and checks
8 A few cards, a few calls
9. The Christmas we get we deserve
10. Isaiah 'twas foretold it
11. She'll walk a toboggan with a four speed stick
12.For I've grown a little leaner, grown a little colder
13. Bring me a five pound box of money
14. We kissed on a corner then danced through the night
15. I'd never steal from Santa, cause that ain't right

Bonus challenge: What do the following songs have in common?

Sleigh Ride
Jingle Bells
Winter Wonderland
Let it Snow
Good King Wenceslas
Frosty the Snowman
Bonus challenge first: I believe that none of the six songs listed ever mention Christmas AT ALL.

And the easiest of the Lyrics for me was #6..'Make the Yuletide gay' is from "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas", because I grew up in the 1960s, the first decade in which the word "gay" could elicit giggles from adolescents.

And, oh yeah, #12... 'for I've grown a little leaner, grown a little colder' is from "We Need a Little Christmas (Right This Very Minute", which is followed by 'grown a little sadder, grown a little older, and I need a little angel, sittin' on my shoulder' (great rhymes, IMO)

1 - Jingle Bells! - I really love Ella Fitzgerald's version.
5 - Merry Xmas (War is Over) - I love PART of this song, heh heh.
7 - Santa Baby! (one of my least faves, for some reason)
11 - Lil Saint Nick - one of the goofiest :-)

I really only know the secular stuff I think.
