      (Written by Janet Devlin & Richard "Roo" Walker)

      Chestnuts roasting on the fire top
      Children's signs read Santa stop
      Familiar scents that we forgot
      December daze

      The sound of church bells start to ring
      Everyone's out caroling
      We've all got a song to sing
      December daze, they're here again

      With family on our mind
      We'll be home on time

      Their gifts wrapped in ribbon
      unopened and new
      waiting beneath the tree
      The gift with my name on
      unravels with glee
      So Merry Christmas to me

      We watch snowflakes start to fall
      We build snowmen standing tall
      and don't forget to deck the hall
      December daze they're here again

      With family on our mind
      We'll be home on time

      Their gifts wrapped in ribbon
      unopened and new
      waiting beneath the tree
      The gift with my name on
      unravels with glee
      So Merry Christmas to me

    • Lyrics

      (Written by Joni Mitchell)

      It's coming on Christmas
      They're cutting down trees
      They're putting up reindeer
      And singing songs of joy and peace
      Oh I wish I had a river I could skate away on

      But it don't snow here
      It stays pretty green
      I'm going to make a lot of money
      Then I'm going to quit this crazy scene
      Oh I wish I had a river I could skate away on

      I wish I had a river so long
      I would teach my feet to fly
      I wish I had a river I could skate away on
      I made my baby cry

      He tried hard to help me
      You know, he put me at ease
      And he loved me so naughty
      Made me weak in the knees
      Oh, I wish I had a river I could skate away on

      I'm so hard to handle
      I'm selfish and I'm sad
      Now I've gone and lost the best baby
      That I ever had
      I wish I had a river I could skate away on

      Oh, I wish I had a river so long
      I would teach my feet to fly
      I wish I had a river
      I could skate away on
      I made my baby say goodbye

      It's coming on Christmas
      They're cutting down trees
      They're putting up reindeer
      And singing songs of joy and peace
      I wish I had a river I could skate away on

      (Written by Hugh Martin & Ralph Blaine)

      Have yourself a merry little Christmas
      Let your heart be light
      From now on your troubles will be out of sight, yeah

      Have yourself a merry little Christmas
      Make the Yuletide gay
      From now on our troubles will be miles away

      Here we are as in olden days
      Happy golden days of yore
      Faithful friends who are dear to us
      Gather near to us once more

      Through the years we all will be together and
      If the fates allow
      Hang a shining star upon the highest bow
      And have yourself a merry little Christmas now

      Here we are as in olden days
      Happy golden days of yore

      Through the years we all will be together
      If the fates allow
      Hang a shining star upon the highest bow
      And have yourself a merry little Christmas now

      (Written by Janet Devlin)

      Everybody's out playing in the snow
      but I'm sat here beside the fire 'cause you know
      I don't like the cold
      Everyone's out dancing in the street
      singing songs and carols, while the children are asleep
      but that's just not for me

      And just 'cause you're a little more festive than me
      doesn't mean I don't enjoy a good holiday
      so know, I want you to know

      Have yourself a merry happy jolly festive Christmas time
      You do yours the way you do, and I'll be fine the way I do mine

      Have yourself a merry happy jolly festive Christmas time
      I'll be drinking whiskey not wine
      So happy holidays, happy holidays

      Families gather round tellin' stories of old
      Reminiscing of the good times wearing festive hats of gold
      Don't forget these days we're always told

      And just because you're a little more festive than us
      doesn't mean we won't enjoy our time this Christmas
      so know, we want you to know

      Have yourself a merry happy jolly festive Christmas time
      You do yours the way you do, and I'll be fine the way I do mine

      Have yourself a merry happy jolly festive Christmas time
      I'll be drinking whiskey not wine
      So happy holidays, happy holidays

      Happy H-O-L-I-D-A-Y!

      So happy holidays!

      Happy H-O-L-I-D-A-Y-S!

    • Lyrics

      (Written by Franz Gruber & Joseph Mohr)

      Silent night, Holy night
      All is calm, all is bright
      Round yon virgin, mother and child
      Holy infant, so tender and mild
      Sleep in heavenly peace
      Sleep in heavenly peace

      Silent night, Holy night
      Shepherds quake, at the sight
      Glories stream from heaven above
      Heavenly hosts sing Hallelujah
      Christ the Savior is born
      Christ the Savior is born

      Silent night, Holy night
      Son of God, love's pure light
      Radiant beams from thy holy face
      With the dawn of redeeming grace,
      Jesus, Lord at thy birth
      Jesus, Lord at thy birth

Irish singer/songwriter Janet Devlin, who People Magazine claim will “knock your socks off”, will punctuate her tremendously eventful 2015 with the November 27 release of herDecember Daze EP on OK! Good Records.  The holiday-themed EP, which will feature a pair of originals (“December Daze”, “Happy Holidays”), two traditional Christmas numbers “(Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas”, “Silent Night”) and a cover of Joni Mitchell’s “River” will follow up the Spring 2015 release of Devlin’s debut album, Running With Scissors.

 Capturing an optimism and bliss that only the holiday season can produce, the title track “December Daze” was written last winter during Devlin’s first ever trip to New York City. “I’d gone for a walk in Central Park and it was covered in snow, reminding me of all the classic Christmas films that had been made there,” she remembers of the experience. “Back in my hotel, I sat on the 36th floor with my guitar player, with the view of Times Square in the background, watching people with their woolly hats and oversized coats.”

Joined by a friskier, tongue-in-cheek, “Happy Holidays,” in which Devlin plays drums, percussion, ukulele, glockenspiel and vocal, December Daze’s duo of originals slot in flawlessly against the time honored holiday classics like “Silent Night”, “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas”, and Joni Mitchell’s “River.”

As a memorable 2015 fades away, Devlin will enter the studio in early 2016 to begin work on her highly anticipated sophomore release.
