Christmas In Hollis lyrics:
It was December 24th on Hollis Ave after dark
When I see a man chillin' with his dog in the park
I approached very slowly with my heart full of fear
Looked at his dog, oh my God, an ill reindeer
But then I was willin' because the man had a beard
And a bag full of goodies, 12 o'clock had neared
So, I turned my head a second and the man had gone
But he must have dropped his wallet smack down on the lawn.
I picked the wallet up, then I took a pause
Took out the license and it cold said "Santa Claus"
A million dollars in it, cold hundreds of G's
Enough to buy a boat and matching car with ease
But I'd never steal from Santa, cause that ain't right
So I was going home to mail it back to him that night
But when I got home I bugged, cause under the tree
Was a letter from Santa and the dough's for me.
It's Christmas time in Hollis Queens
Mom's cooking chicken and collard greens
Rice and stuffin', macaroni and cheese
And Santa put gifts under Christmas trees
Decorate the house with lights at night
Snow's on the ground, snow white so bright
In the fireplace is the yule log
Beneath the mistletoe as we drink eggnog
The rhymes that you hear are the rhymes of Darryl's
But each and every year we bust Christmas carols.
Rhymes so loud and proud you hear it
It's Christmas time and we got the spirit
Jack Frost chillin', the orchids out
And that's what Christmas is all about
The time is now, the place is here
And the whole wide world is filled with cheer.
My name's D.M.C. with the mike in my hand
And I'm chilling and coolin' just like a snowman
So open your eyes, lend us an ear
We want to say Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
