about

Just in time for Christmas, the Pandas* have a present for you! Ben and Quinton have compiled a collection of carols classic and contemporary. Here's to hoping it makes your holidays a modicum more merry!

*Well, ok, it's just Ben and Quinton, and it sounds much closer to their new project, Something and the Whatevers, but that band hadn't been christened yet (plus, panda in a stocking cap!)

Track Name: Father Christmas (The Kinks cover)
xWhen I was small I believed in santa claus
Though I knew it was my dad
And I would hang up my stocking at christmas
Open my presents and I'd be glad

But the last time I played father christmas
I stood outside a department store
A gang of kids came over and mugged me
And knocked my reindeer to the floor

They said:
Father christmas, give us some money
Don't mess around with those silly toys.
Well beat you up if you don't hand it over
We want your bread so don't make us annoyed
Give all the toys to the little rich boys

Don't give my brother a steve austin outfit
Don't give my sister a cuddly toy
We don't want a jigsaw or monopoly money
We only want the real mccoy

Father christmas, give us some money
Well beat you up if you make us annoyed
Father christmas, give us some money
Don't mess around with those silly toys

But give my daddy a job cause he needs one
Hes got lots of mouths to feed
But if youve got one, I'll have a machine gun
So I can scare all the kids on the street

Father christmas, give us some money
We got no time for your silly toys
Well beat you up if you don't hand it over
We want your bread, so don't make us annoyed
Give all the toys to the little rich boys

Have yourself a merry merry christmas
Have yourself a good time
But remember the kids who got nothin
While you're drinkin down your wine

Father christmas, give us some money
We got no time for your silly toys
Father Christmas, please hand it over
We'll beat you up, so don't make us annoyed

Father christmas, give us some money
Don't mess around with those silly toys
Well beat you up if you don't hand it over
We want your bread, so don't make us annoyed
Give all the toys to the little rich boys
Track Name: I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas (Gayla Peevey cover)
I want a hippopotamus for Christmas
Only a hippopotamus will do
Don't want a doll, no dinky Tinker Toy
I want a hippopotamus to play with and enjoy

I want a hippopotamus for Christmas
I don't think Santa Claus will mind, do you?
He won't have to use our dirty chimney flue
Just bring him through the front door, that's the easy thing to do

I can see me now on Christmas morning, creeping down the stairs
Oh what joy and what surprise when I open up my eyes
To see a hippo hero standing there

I want a hippopotamus for Christmas
Only a hippopotamus will do
No crocodiles, no rhinoceroses
I only like hippopotamuses
And hippopotamuses like me too

Mom says the hippo would eat me up, but then
Teacher says a hippo is a vegeterian

There's lots of room for him in our two-car garage
I'd feed him there and wash him there and give him his massage
I can see me now on Christmas morning, creeping down the stairs
Oh what joy and what surprise when I open up my eyes
To see a hippo hero standing there

I want a hippopotamus for Christmas
Only a hippopotamus will do
No crocodiles or rhinoceroseses
I only like hippopotamuseses
And hippopotamuses like me too!
Track Name: Prisoner Christmas (The Professor Brothers cover)
Johnny wishes he was just a little bigger,
Frankie wishes he was back on the force.
Hairy Hal wishes for ladies and gals, and
Little William wants to get a divorce.

its Christmas, Christmas, Christmas Eve,
Can't leave, its Prisoner Christmas.
They're wishin', wishin', wishin',
Please, oh, please, release me this Christmas.
You can here 'em now.

Boo, wa wa hoo hoo hoo, wa wa hoo hoo,
Boo hoo, wa wa hoo hoo hoo, wa wa hoo hoo
Boo Hoooooooooooooooo



Well Dee-Dee wishes he asked to see her ID,
And Freddie wishes he could kill them again,
And Jeremy is just-a dreamin' for a re-do machine,
and Dunston wishes he had never checked in

its Christmas, Christmas, Christmas Eve,
Can't leave, its Prisoner Christmas.
They're wishin', wishin', wishin',
Please, please, please, please, please, release me this christmas.
You can here 'em now.

Boo, wa wa hoo hoo hoo, wa wa hoo hoo,
Boo hoo, wa wa hoo hoo hoo, wa wa hoo hoo
Boo Hoooooooooooooooo

Davy needs to be free so that he can proceed with his greed he wants every beanie baby
Jimmy prays he'll be saved so he slaves and behaves so one day he can kill his sucky lawyer
Alpha Male turning pale with the fear that this year
it's his rear that will be somebody's baby

Little Mike wasn't like what you find
But he's here and he's queer
So get used to iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiit

Its Prisoner Christmas
They're wishin, wishin, wishin,
Please, please, jesus, please, release me this Christmas
You can hear 'em now

Boo, wa wa hoo hoo hoo, wa wa hoo hoo,
Boo hoo, wa wa hoo hoo hoo, wa wa hoo hoo
Boo hoo, wa wa hoo hoo hoo, wa wa hoo hoo,
Boo hoo, wa wa hoo hoo hoo
Track Name: Christmas Song
Christmas morning I headed downstairs
To see what presents Santa had left there
But my older brother was waiting in the middle of the room
And he said, with a smile, "I've got something to tell you"

There is no Santa
There is no Rudolph
Your parents lied to you
Merry Christmas

There is no Santa
There is no Rudolph
Your parents lied
So merry Christmas

When vacation was over
