Bob Dylan Christmas Album

For a good cause:

"..all of Bob Dylan's U.S. current and future royalties from sales of Christmas In The Heart will be donated in perpetuity to Feeding America, guaranteeing that more than four million meals will be provided to over 1.4 million people in need in this country during this year's holiday season."

Can't help noticing though that the play list is missing something..What could it be?

1. Here Comes Santa Claus
2. Do You Hear What I Hear?
3. Winter Wonderland
4. Hark the Herald Angels Sing
5. I'll Be Home for Christmas
6. Little Drummer Boy
7. Christmas Blues
8. O' Come All Ye Faithful (Adeste Fideles)
9. Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas
10. Must Be Santa
11. Silver Bells
12. First Noel
13. Christmas Island
14. Christmas Song
15. O' Little Town of Bethlehem

Where are the "Northern Latitudinal Homesick Blues" eh?

Vixen's in the basement
Mixing up the cocoa mix
I'm on the ice-sheet
Chewin' on some pepamint
The man in the red coat
list out, takes off
Says he's got a long night
Wants ta get home 'fore dawn
Look out kid
It's somethin' you did
Claus knows when
But you're doin' it again
You better duck down the hall way
Lookin' for your own bed
The man in the red-fur
With the big pen
Wants eleven counted sheep
You only got ten
Maggie comes fleet foot
Face full of black soot
Talkin' bout the black boot
Standin’ in the fireplace
The milk's tapped anyway
Maggie says that cookies gone
We must dust in early Morn
Orders from the dad n’ mom.
Look out kid
Don't matter what you did
Walk on your tip toes
Don't try "No Doze"
Better stay away from those
Carried round by reindeer
Keep a clean nose
Watch the plain clothes
You don't need a weather man
To know which way the snow blows
Ah Get naughty, get nice
Hang around those that’s nice
Drink nog, hot choc
If anything wrong, goin' to tell
Try hard, gotta nod
Lay back, saw wood
Count sheep, must sleep
Lump o carbon, if you fail
Look out kid
You're gonna get skipped
By Donder, Blitzen
Reindeer pullin’
Hang around the rooftops
Growlin by the chimney
Lookin' for a foot hold
Don't eat the cookies
Watch the peepin' kiddies
Ah shoes-worn, keep warm
Chimney soot, black stuff, tracked in
Get dressed, jammies pressed
Try to say god bless
Please her, please him, get gifts
Don't steal, don't shout
Couple years of schoolin'
And they put you in time out
Look out kid
They keep it all hid
Better jump under blankets
Light yourself a flashlight
Don't wear sandals
Try to avoid the scandals
Don't wanna be a bum
You better chew gum
The fridge don't work
'Cause the Claus-man took the handle

Monday Madness

Shut Up
