It's cold outside And there is snow on the ground You can feel the yuletide And you can hear the sound Of caroling And people who are having fun You can hear them sing To celebrate their favorite son Christmas comes just once a year So fill your cup with joy and spread the cheer The miseltoe Waits patiently As we watch the snow And decorate the tree Jingle bells Ring through the night And the Christmas lights Shine so very bright (so very bright, so very bright) Christmas comes just once a year It's a time to hold the ones you love And say I love you dear (I love you dear, I love you dear) Christmas comes just once a year It's a time to hold the ones we love So very near Merry Christmas Peace on earth Christmas comes just once a year So fill your cup with joy and spread the cheer Christmas comes just once a year I want to wish the whole wide world Merry Christmas, merry Christmas Seasons greetings, happy holiday

Austin summer it's so hot outside You can see the sun running overdrive I take a stroll down to the corner store And I go back inside because I want some more Alegria and the Groovers' lane I can see the sky and I can hear the train In the distance going somewhere new I just want to be in the moment with you She can change my whole wide world She can change my whole wide world Lay in bed o Lord I slept so late It's been way too long that I have been away She yawns and rubs the sleepin' from her eyes I'm so glad to be here she says so am I She can change my whole wide world She can change my whole wide world

Georgia Ann 03:26
Georgia Ann, please take my hand And take a walk with me girl Georgia Ann please understand I want to talk with you girl I've been gone for way too long And I have missed your smiling face I can't stand to go another day Without the thought of your embrace (put your arms around me) Georgia Ann, please understand I didn't mean to make you feel this way Georgia Ann, your wish is my command But there's something that I got to say Hear me out and please don't pout I know that you didn't want me to go Let me sing and let me shout Because I want the world to know (how he feels about you) Georgia Ann, please understand It's been so hard to be away I have traveled the whole wide world But I can't wait to get back to my sweet, sweet girl I am so glad you're my Georgia Ann I am so glad that I'm a family man Georgia Ann, I've been a lonely man Since I said goodbye to mommy and you I had to go away for my workadays But you know that's what daddy's do I want you know that I will always be here To catch you if you fall And when you need me for anything All you got to do is call Georgia Ann, please understand There is something I've got to say I have traveled the whole wide world But I can't wait to get back to my sweet, sweet girl I am so glad you're my Georgia Ann I am so very glad to be your dad

You looking at me, looking at you You're looking so fine I never had dreamed That someone like you Would call me mine When I start to feel this way You look me in the eye Cause you know you're the only one Who can make me fly Cause, Lady, I want to make sweet love to you Like honeybears and butterflies and pandas at the zoo Lady, only you will do Cast your magic spell on me And put me in the mood A beautiful sight As I watch you tonight Across the room Please come closer to me Cause I want to see Your flowers bloom Show me what my woman does To make this man a swan Cause you know you're the only one Who can turn me on Cause, Lady, I want to make sweet love to you Like bumblebees and birds in trees And lovers on the moon Lady, won't you come lay next to me Let me whisper in your ear And kiss you tenderly I never knew What love was for Til you came in my life Then I knew it was more Than just a dream That someone like you Would belong to me Cause, Lady, I want to make sweet love to you Like honeybears and butterflies and pandas at the zoo Lady, only you will do Cast your magic spell on me And put me in the mood Put me in the mood For loving you

Hey Joe, where you going? What did I hear you say? You're heading out to New York Then maybe Frisco Then down to LA You're gonna tell 'em the story Of morning glory And o by the way Everyone's doing it hunky dory So won't you please pass that jay? You gotta tell 'em, Joe You gotta let 'em know That you just must be on your way You gotta tell 'em, Joe Although it hurts you so There's just no way you can stay You'll love them all some sunny day You were born on the seventh hour On the seventh day Now you've got seven women Don't let them stand in your way You gotta tell 'em, Joe You gotta let 'em know That you just must be on your way You gotta tell 'em, Joe Although it hurts you so There's just no way you can stay Little girly standing in the corner She caught your eye You better go over there and warn her It won't be long 'fore you say goodbye You gotta tell 'em, Joe You gotta let 'em know That you only like it one way You gotta tell 'em, Joe Although it hurts you so There's just no way you can stay

Tracie B, please spend your life with me I love you endlessly So don't you run away Tell me that you'll hold me til forever Tell me that you'll always be my lover Tracie B, won't you marry me?

There's nothing you can grow that can't be grown There's nothing you can plant that can't be sown There's nothing you can think that can't be thunk There's nothing you can drink that can't be drunk All we need is grapes All we need is grapes All we need is grapes All we need is grapes Mother nature is yours and she is mine And the tender grapes she grows on the vine She gives us the earth, the sun, the sky But it takes humankind to make the wine so fine All we need is grapes All we need is grapes All we need is grapes All we need is grapes

about

Parzen Family Singers Houston, Texas

Parzen Family Singers is an indy-pop band formed in Houston by Nous Non Plus guitar player and Les Sans Culottes alumnus Jeremy Parzen (aka Cal d'Hommage).

For Parzen, writing a song is like writing a blog post: it captures a moment in time, an impression of the world around us, and a feeling inside our hearts.

Inspiration comes from Lila Jane (7) and Georgia P (9) and wife Tracie P née B.
