Thank You For The Music lyrics

I'm nothing special, in fact I'm a bit of a bore
If I tell a joke, you've probably heard it before
But I have a talent a wonderful thing
'Cause everyone listens when I start to sing
I'm so grateful and proud
All I want is to sing it out loud

So I say
Thank you for the music, the songs I'm singing
Thanks for all the joy they're bringing
Who can live without it, I ask in all honesty?
What would life be?
Without a song or a dance what are we?
So I say thank you for the music
For giving it to me

Mother says I was a dancer before I could walk
She says I began to sing long before I could talk
And I've often wondered, how did it all start?
Who found out that nothing can capture a heart
Like a melody can?
Well, whoever it was, I'm a fan

So I say
Thank you for the music, the songs I'm singing
Thanks for all the joy they're bringing
Who can live without it, I ask in all honesty?
What would life be?
Without a song or a dance what are we?
So I say thank you for the music
For giving it to me

I've been so lucky, I am the girl with golden hair
I wanna sing it out to everybody
What a joy, what a life, what a chance

Thank you for the music, the songs I'm singing
Thanks for all the joy they're bringing
Who can live without it, I ask in all honesty?
What would life be?
Without a song or a dance what are we?
So I say thank you for the music
For giving it to me
So I say thank you for the music
For giving it to me

Its Christmas every where

Its Christmas everywhere!
There’s music in the air from east to west the bells will ring; from north to south we’ll dance and sing!
Its Christmas every where there’s music in the air we celebrate the world around.
Its Christmas everywhere!
It can start as early as November
It can last the whole month of December.

Christmas

...Jingle Bells and a Cake Lights! Snow! Santa! It was that time of year again, my favorite holiday, Christmas. My mom, two of my brothers and I all decorated the house, inside and out. Our house was so nice and filled with Christmas colors. Our tree, garage, front door, and driveway were all covered with bright LED lights. I decorated a green reef with ornaments and bows to put up on the door. It was my mom’s idea to put a red bow on the mailbox. We had three plastic reindeer outside, two standing up and one down looking like it was eating grass. After all since it does snow a lot in Richmond we had a white Christmas. The snow is was so fluffy and soft that it felt like soft marshallows that will melt in your hand. The snow was perfect for the snowman we made to put up. He was a traditional snowman with the black pebbles for eyes, a carrot for a nose, and long branches for arms. To change him up from the rest of the snowmen my brother put one of his own black cardigans around the snowman. On the inside of the house we had a big 10 foot tree. It had lights spiraled around it, globe ornaments that were different colors (but they all matched, nothing tacky), little angles dangling and a nice white star at the top. Those decorations took a lot of work, but it was worth it. My family came to my exquisite city of Richmond, Virginia. All my cousins, my grandparents, my uncles and aunts even family friends came over to my house. It was a celebration. Not just a celebration of......

Christmas Season

...White Christmas We all know that God created us, and he want us to take care of his creation. So God point is, he want us to give care on each other, care about his creation, and not only care about ourselves. But how can we give care of his creation? What should we do? If some peoples are not caring about their selves, what more to others? On our culture, there is one day that all people are giving love and care to each other, and that is the Christmas day. Even it is only one day; it can make a person generous. Like us, the 1st year students of Wesleyan University-Philippines, before we have our Christmas break, we conducted a “White Christmas” on Brgy. Cruz Roja. We gave love and care to the children; we gave them a gift that can help them on their lives. By means of that, we made them happy, so we also fell happy. Helping children is so fun; we saw their smiles while playing games and when they are eating. It is fun even we are tired. By just helping them, we show that we are caring for them and we love them. We make them feel important to us, and we make them feel that there’s someone who can help them. Even those things are small to us, for them that are so big. On helping others, even by means of something small or big, we can show our care and love for them. By that, we’ll feel happy. But not all people can help. Some peoples cannot help others because they cannot help themselves. Their reason is, they are only a poor person, but they didn’t know that even......

Christmas Hippo

...Christmas Hippo I. One of the joys of Christmas for me is the Christmas music that is played on the radio. I specifically like to hear the music on the radio rather than the music I have on my phone and at my command.

One of my Favorite songs to hear is I want a Hippopotamus for Christmas There a young Girl sings about her desire to have a Hippopotamus for Christmas. In her mind nothing else will satisfy her B.

One of my favorite lines in that songs is the excuse mom gives The Hippo will eat you up but the child replies that the teacher said Hippos are vegetarians. II. One of my other Joys at Christmas is watching the Christmas movies. Many of the shows I like to watch. It’s a Wonderful Life, Miracle on 34th ST, A Christmas Carol, and of course A Christmas Story.

Song of Songs

...Song of Songs Rabbi Aqiba once said that “For in all the world there is nothing to equal the day on which the Song of Songs was given to Israel, for all the writings are Holy, but the Song of Songs is the Holy of Holies.” (Davidson) This statement is made in regards to whether or not the book “Song of Songs” is to be included in the canon on the Bible. This book is a collection of songs and love poetry between two lovers. This book can be considered as an allegory of human sexuality, or divine love. However, there is no direct mention of the Divine Presence anywhere within the book. Even the Jewish Rabbis with the most understanding of biblical concepts regarding sexuality have trouble agreeing that a book of seemingly secular love poetry should be included in the sacred canon.(Davidson) When Aqiba said the Song of Songs was the Holy of Holies, he probably intended that to mean that the Song was detailed symbolism of the historical relationship between Yahweh (the Divine Presence) and the people of Israel from the Exodus to the coming of the Messiah.(Davidson) During the time, sexual feelings were considered pagan and evil. Some Christian allegorists believe that the author (or authors) of the songs wrote in a way that disguised sexual expressing as a yearning for God. Most scholars believe that the authors purposely wrote about yearning for God in an incredibly sexual way to further imply the strong emotions behind said yearning. These songs are regardless a type of......

Christmas

...Christmas is a holiday celebrated by Romans. The first time the birth of Jesus Christ was ascribed to December 25 in the 4th century, according to the early Roman history. Early celebrations of Christmas are considered to have resulting from Roman and other European festivals that marked the ending of the harvest, and the beginning of winter solstice. Some traditions from those celebrations that have survived include decorating homes with greenery, giving presents, singing songs, and eating winter foods. There is a legend about St. Nicholas. Although a lot of his history is unconfirmed, he lived in the 4th century and is believed that he was a bishop. Many miracles ascribed to him are doubtful. Yet he was considered a patron saint in some countries. Children, sailors, and the poor also considered him a saint because he helped them. So to honor him, the Feast of Saint Nicholas was celebrated on December 6th and presents are given the night before. This tradition was well recognized by many countries by the 12th century. Eventually, Christmas Day and St. Nicholas’ Day were combined because they were so close together. St. Nicholas took on different characters in different countries. For example, The Netherlands have Sinter Klaas, Father Christmas gives gifts in Great Britain, Père Noël gives gifts in France, and in Germany St. Nicholas has had many names including Klaasbuur, Burklaas, Rauklas, Bullerklaas, and Sunnercla, although the name Father Christmas is becoming......

The Christmas Truce

...Brittany Prunsky Episodes of World War I The Christmas Truce of 1914 “Christmas Eve was, in the way of weather, everything that Christmas Eve should be’. Christmas Day itself was a perfect day. A beautiful, cloudless blue sky. The ground hard and white ... It was such a day as is invariably depicted by artists on Christmas cards - the ideal Christmas Day of fiction. And indeed, the curious manifestations taking place along considerable stretches of the British front that day had a look of the most surprising fiction” (Terraine). The wonderful events that occurred over the Christmas holiday of 1914 revealed to all that the human spirit seems to have a way of peaking through at rather disastrous times showing that even in times of chaos, a glimmer of hope can be seen through the compassion that humans undoubtedly possess. This was proven true during one of the most violent and fatal wars in history. World War I, also known as The Great War, spanned from 1914 until 1918 experiencing around 37 million war casualties (“First World War Casualties”). During the horrors of the war, an almost unexplainable incident occurred; the Christmas Truce of 1914, which restored a bit of hope in many men living in hopelessness. Neither a civilian nor a soldier during World War I could have anticipated the Christmas Truce of 1914 due to its story like characteristics. Although at times seen as merely a myth or a small incident blown widely out of proportion, this truce......

Christmas Is Christmas

...Christmas or Christmas Day is a holiday[4][5][6] generally observed on December 25 (with alternative days of January 7 for many Orthodox churches, January 6 for the Armenian Apostolic Church and January 19 for the Armenians of Jerusalem and the Holy Land[7]) to commemorate the birth of Jesus, the central figure of Christianity.[8][9] The date the actual birthday of Jesus is not known, and the events of Christ's birth are only recorded in two of the Canonical gospels. Christmas may have initially been chosen to correspond with either the day exactly nine months after Christians believe Jesus to have been conceived,[10] the date of the Roman winter solstice,[11] or one of various ancient winter festivals.[10][12] Christmas is central to the Christmas and holiday season, and in Christianity marks the beginning of the larger season of Christmastide, which lasts twelve days.[13] Although nominally a Christian holiday, Christmas is also celebrated by an increasing number of non-Christians worldwide,[1][14][15] and many of its popular celebratory customs have pre-Christian or secular themes and origins. Popular modern customs of the holiday include gift-giving, music, an exchange of Christmas cards, church celebrations, a special meal, and the display of various decorations; including Christmas trees, lights, garlands, mistletoe, nativity scenes, and holly. In addition, in Western Christianity several figures, known as Saint Nicholas, Father Christmas, and Santa Claus, among other...

Christmas

...Christmas Holidays are found no matter where you go. Everyone in this world celebrates one thig or another. The only differences between the holidays for different countries are the subjects of celebration. Christmas may be one of the most renowned holidays in this world. Christmas is a holiday that occurs on the 25th of December. It first originated in western culture, and is heavily celebrated in the US. Christmas was slowly adapted in East Asia once globalization started occurring. Just because it is celebrated in places like China does not mean it encompasses the same meaning for the people. Christmas, for both countries is a holiday near the end of the year where most businesses and schools are closed. It is a holiday where people give gifts to each other, and also spend time with each other. It is a holiday where families spend time together and have a unique experience. For the US, Christmas is a major holiday where many traditions and events occur. There exist a whole backstory, characters, myths, and beliefs for this holiday. There are special ornaments, and decorations. Everyone tries to decorate their whole house and also get a tree. There are special food and drinks too. I hear people have things like turkey, fruit cake, gingerbread houses, and eggnog. There are festive songs, and movies. There are so many songs about Christmas and even more movies about it.

The Christmas

...The Christmas The leadership of the church that the author (Bill McKibben) of this story "The Christmas" urges practitioners to do what they call "Hundred Dollar Holidays". He explains this as "The church leadership voted to urge practitioners not to spend more than $100 per family on presents, and to rely on simple homemade gifts and on presents of services". This was suggested to anchor against the seductions of advertisers during the holiday season, and to save the families some money that could be used on other things like bills and things needed for the home. Bill then states that "When we began the $100 campaign, merchants who wrote letters to the local papers, made it clear to us what a threatening idea it was." With an idea like this and with how much revenue the holidays bring in for businesses this could really hurt them. He says that "So far, our daughter, Sophie, does fine at Christmas. Her stocking is exciting to her; the tree is exciting; skating on the pond is exciting. It's worth mentioning, however, that we don't have a television, so she may not understand the degree of her impoverishment." He states earlier that it is not about the money anymore it is about bringing more joy to the holiday. I on one hand can see his point on this, the holidays are about joy and spending time with one another and not about how much stuff you get. now on the other growing up we got two toys for Christmas and then all the other stuff was neat but it was stuff that we......
