about

A MusiCares benefit album

credits

released December 1, 2018

And now, it is time for the comp, A Green Monkey Christmas For Martians Up On Mars!
As you have no doubt ascertained having purchased and listened to The True Olympians single several times, the title comes from the final line of “Christmas Train”. Martians need love too. This October I put out the word as I do each year and this year we have 18 slices of Christmas love for you - a new record! We have some of our regulars, some old friends coming back to visit and some new kids that just want to jingle. You know - the usual. As always, all the money we take in from this album goes to MusiCares, a great charity that helps music people in need. We don’t keep a dime. I have sent folks that needed help to MusiCares and they got helped. Straight up. So we are happy to make our (and yours) little bit of difference. And, thanks to everyone who contributed a song this year – we hope you will do it again!

I think this is a great opportunity for all of you to play “battle of the bands” with all your friends at this year’s Christmas party! Step one. Get everyone there. Step two. Party up! Step three. Hit the dance floor and do the St. Nick boogey. Step four. Vote. It’s just that simple.

Track Name: The Holiday Bloch-busters - War On Christmas
It's a War on Christmas
Music: Tom Dyer Words: Joni Brill & Tom Dyer

It’s a war It’s a war
Head to your holiday bomb shelters
It's a war on Christmas
We're gonna arm St. Nick and all his elves
It's a war on Christmas

Ho Ho Ho you can't blame the Buddhist, the Muslims or the Jews
Ho Ho Ho No this phony a war was created by Fox News

They'll be no more popcorn chains
It's a war on Christmas
Hanging from the trees
It's a war on Christmas
No more cups of hot chocolate,
It's a war on Christmas
Warm apple cider or exotic teas
It's a war on Christmas

Ho Ho Ho Forget your childhood memories the ones from long ago
Ho Ho Ho of gentle family gatherings, of mittens, hats and snow
Ho Ho Ho don't worry about corporate profits They'll get theirs anyway
Ho Ho Ho it's the end of senseless worship of this Jesus holiday

It's the end of black Friday
And the crowded shopping malls
The long lines to visit Santa Claus and
Joyful carolers singing Deck the Halls
No more stars hanging from the trees
No houses lit in colored lights so bright
They're taking away your Christmas decorations
And declaring this a silent night
Track Name: Richard Stuverud - Empty Branches
SPIRITS OF OLD CHRISTMAS EVES

BRANCHES THAT GAVE UP THEIR LEAVES

CARDBOARD TUBES THAT ONCE HELD SILVER WRAPPING PAPER



EMBERS ALL BURNING DOWN

YOU AND ME STILL HANGING ROUND

HOPING THIS TIME WE DON'T GET CAUGHT NAPPING

WHEN IT COUNTS



DIFF'RENT LIGHT THIS TIME OF YEAR

USED TO BE MORE CHILDREN HERE

ANOTHER NIGHT I MIGHT HAVE ASKED YOU TO STAY



I CAN SEE HOW HARD YOU TRY

DON'T KNOW HOW TO SAY GOODBYE



BUT WHEN THE BELLS STOP RINGING

I'LL BE HEARING YOUR VOICE SINGING

WHEN THE BELLS STOP RINGING

I'LL BE HEARING YOU VOICE SINGING

(repeat)
