"Oh Santa!" was released as the album's first single on October 11, 2010. The song, co-written and co-produced by Mariah, Jermaine Dupri and Bryan-Michael Cox, debuted at number one on Billboard's Holiday Digital Songs chart, and at number twelve on the Hot Adult Contemporary Tracks chart before reaching number one the following week, making it the fastest rise to the top in the history of the chart.

"When Christmas Comes" was re-recorded as a duet with singer John Legend and released on November 21, 2011.

Santa's gonna come and make him mine this Christmas
Santa's gonna come and make him mine, mine
Santa's gonna come and make him mine this Christmas
Santa's gonna come and make him mine, mine

Santa, if you get this letter won't you help me out
I know you're kinda busy with your elves right now
And I don't know how
You do the things you do while I sleep on Christmas Eve

But it's amazing
And I bet that you could bring me back my baby
Because every time I see Christmas lights
I feel this burn inside and I just can't take it

I saw them shopping last week
And his new girl was so bleak
And then I swore to myself
Santa's gonna come and make him mine this Christmas night

Ho, ho, ho
Santa's gonna come and make you mine this Christmas
Santa's gonna come and make you mine, ho, ho, ho
Santa's gonna come and make you mine this Christmas

Oh Santa, I heard that it's really gonna snow this year
So I hope Rudolph and them other eight reindeer
Get you safely here
So you can scoop him up and swoop him right down my chimney

I've been really, really, really good this year
So put on that red suit and make him appear
'Cause Christmas cheer just ain't the same without my baby
Come on, oh Kris Kringle, send me help

They say it's unrealistic
But I believe in you, Saint Nick
So grant this wish for me right quick
Santa won't you come and make him mine this Christmas night

Ho, ho, ho
Santa's gonna come and make you mine this Christmas
Santa's gonna come and make you mine, ho, ho, ho
Santa's gonna come and make you mine this Christmas

Oh Santa, oh Santa
Oh, oh, oh Santa
C'mon Santa

Santa's gonna come and make you mine this Christmas
Santa's gonna come and make you mine, mine
Santa's gonna come and make you mine, mine

Oh Santa Claus, if you get this letter please don't make me wait
'Cause all December I'll be counting down the days
So hop on your sleigh
I promise that I won't forget the milk and cookies

The trees are sparkly and gold
But inside I feel so cold
So soon as you leave the North Pole
Santa won't you come and make him mine this Christmas

Santa's gonna come and make you mine Ho, ho, ho
Santa's gonna come and make you mine this Christmas
Santa's gonna come and make you mine Ho, ho, ho
Santa's gonna come and make you mine, mine

O little town of Bethlehem
How still we see thee lie
Above thy deep and dreamless sleep
The silent stars go by
Yet in thy dark streets shineth
The everlasting light
The hopes and fears of all the years
Are met in thee tonight

Pa, rum, pa, pum, pum
Rum, pa, pum, pum
Rum, pa, pum, pum
Then he smiled at me

For Christ is born of Mary
And gathered all above
While mortals sleep
The angels keep
Their watch of wondering love
All morning stars together
Proclaim the Holy birth
And praise and sing
To God the King
And peace to men on Earth

Christmas time is in the air again
Christmas chimes reminding me of when
We fell like the snow so deep in love
High above us the evergreens
Sparkle with lights and feel the breeze
As we made future Christmas memories

Christmas shoppers glance at us and smile
'Cause the mistletoe is occupied
And the dream is to share
This Christmas cheer with you all year
And not wait till the morning
When Christmas time is in the air again

Mean Mr. Grinch simply can't resist
Warming up when he looks our way
Even Old Scrooge makes a Christmas wish
For a honey to hold Christmas day
And to feel love like ours always

And the dream is to share
This Christmas cheer
With you all throughout the year
And not wait till the morning
When Christmas time is in the air

Christmas time is everywhere
Christmas time is in the air again
Again and again


Written and produced by Mariah Carey and Marc Shaiman.

The First Noel
The angels did say
Was to certain poor shepherds
In fields as they lay
In fields where they lay
Keeping their sheep
On a cold winter's night
That was so deep

Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel
Born is the King of Israel

Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel
Born is the King of Israel

They looked up
And saw a star
Shining in the East
Beyond them far
And to the earth
It gave great light
And so it continued
Both day and night

Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel
Born is the King of Israel

Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel
Born is the King of Israel
Israel

Born is the King of Israel
Israel, Israel, Israel, Israel
Israel
Born is the King, born is the King
Born is the King, born is the King
Born is the King, born is the King
Our finest gifts we bring
To the King of Israel
King of Kings
The First Noel the
Angels did say

The whole world
Feels a little bit more love
When Christmas comes
When Christmas comes
And everywhere that you go
There's people singing "Let It Snow"
And hanging up
That mistletoe

And me, and you gonna have ourselves
A holiday
And we don't need nobody else
To celebrate
And we're gon' kiss our worries
And our cares away
I can't wait

Because this Christmas time
Get together
It's gonna be so nice
Better than ever
And baby, you're the one
Special treasure
I can't wait to unwrap your love
Until Christmas comes

So many souls hurt
So many don't have enough
When Christmas comes
When Christmas comes
But baby, if you spread love
Someday it might be enough
To heal each other
One by one

And we gon' get together
And rejoice and pray
And we gon' help the world
Become a better place
And we gon' sing and shout
Because the Savior reigns
So don't dismay

Because this Christmas time
Get together
It's gonna be so nice
Better than ever
Because this gift of love
Lasts forever
The Lord makes our hearts open up
Soon as Christmas comes

It's gon' be alright
When Christmas comes
Oh, jingle all the way
Oh what fun

And we gon' reminisce about
The good old days
And we gon' laugh together
As the children play
And through the years it's always
Gonna be this way
Come what may

Because this Christmas time
Get together
It's gonna be so nice
Better than ever
And baby, you're the one
That I treasure
I can't wait to unwrap your love
When Christmas comes

Here comes Santa Claus

Christmas time is here
Happiness and cheer
Fun for all that children call
Their favorite time of year

Snowflakes in the air
Carols everywhere
Olden times and ancient rhymes
Of love and dreams to share

Sleigh bells in the air
Beauty everywhere
Yuletide by the fireside
And joyful memories there

Christmas time is here
We'll be drawing near
Oh, that we could always see
Such spirit through the year
Oh, that we could always see
Such spirit through the year

O come all ye faithful
Joyful and triumphant
O come ye
O come ye to Bethlehem
O come and behold Him
Born the King of Angels
O come, let us adore Him
O come, let us adore Him
O come, let us adore Him
Christ the Lord

And He shall reign forever and ever
And He shall reign forever and ever
For the Lord God, King of kings, reigneth
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah

O Sing
Choirs of angels
Sing in exultation
Sing Hallelujah
Heaven above
Glory to God
Him the Highest
O come, let us adore Him
O come, let us adore Him
O come, let us adore Him
Christ the Lord

And He shall reign forever and ever
And He shall reign forever and ever


O Come All Ye Faithful: Traditional
Hallelujah Chorus written by George Frideric Handel.
Produced by Mariah Carey, James "Big Jim" Wright and Randy Jackson.

O holy night the stars are brightly shining
It is the night of our dear Savior's birth
Long lay the world in sin and error pining
Till He appeared and the soul felt its worth

A thrill of hope, the weary world rejoices
For yonder breaks a new glorious morn
Fall on your knees
O hear the angels' voices
O night divine
O night when Christ was born
O night divine, O night
O night divine

A thrill of hope, the weary world rejoices
For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn
Fall on your knees
O hear the angels' voices
O night divine
O night when Christ was born
O night divine, O night
O night divine


Traditional.
Produced and arranged by Walter Afanasieff and Mariah Carey.

An angel appeared
Of the highest One
And Mary believed
The word she received of
God's only son
The Virgin rejoiced
Gave thanks to the Lord
And as Joseph dreamt
The angel was sent
With tidings of peace and joy
Of the blessed baby boy

They travelled for miles
To reach Bethlehem
Yet when they arrived
No one could provide
Place at the inn for them
But God kept them safe
From hurt, harm and danger
In His warm embrace
Away in a manger
Waiting for Jesus' birth
To glorify the Earth
Then He came

One child can change the world
Christmas Morn'
The King of all kings was born
He reigns forevermore
Let us worship and adore
Christ the Lord

A wondrous star
Led shepherds and wise men
Through valleys and mountains
Angels surrounded them
As they travelled far
As Heaven and Home
Rang out for the Savior
The Sweet Prince of peace
Lay majestically
Asleep glorious and pure
And His mercy endures for always

One child can change the world
Christmas Morn'
The King of all kings was born
He reigns forevermore
Let us worship and adore
Christ the Lord

One child can change the world
Christmas Morn'
The King of all kings was born
He reigns forevermore
Let us worship him
Let us worship him
Let us worship
Christ the Lord

This angel appeared
The angel appeared
Christ the Lord
On Christmas Morn'

I don't want a lot for Christmas
There is just one thing I need
I don't care about presents
Underneath the Christmas tree
I just want you for my own
More than you could ever know
Make my wish come true...
All I want for Christmas
Is you...

I don't want a lot for Christmas
There is just one thing I need
I don't care about presents
Underneath the Christmas tree
I don't need to hang my stocking
There upon the fireplace
Santa Claus won't make me happy
With a toy on Christmas day
I just want you for my own
More than you could ever know
Make my wish come true
All I want for Christmas is you...
You baby

I won't ask for much this Christmas
I won't even wish for snow
I'm just gonna keep on waiting
Underneath the mistletoe
I won't make a list and send it
To the North Pole for Saint Nick
I won't even stay awake to
Hear those magic reindeer click
'Cause I just want you here tonight
Holding on to me so tight
What more can I do
Baby all I want for Christmas is you
You...

All the lights are shining
So brightly everywhere
And the sound of children's
Laughter fills the air
And everyone is singing
I hear those sleigh bells ringing
Santa won't you bring me the one I really need - won't you please bring my baby to me...

Oh I don't want a lot for Christmas
This is all I'm asking for
I just want to see my baby
Standing right outside my door
Oh I just want him for my own
More than you could ever know
Make my wish come true
Baby all I want for Christmas is
You...
All I want for Christmas is you baby

(Repeat)

Should old acquaintance be forgot
And never brought to mind
Should old acquaintance be forgot
And auld lang syne

For auld lang syne, my dear
For auld lang syne
We'll take a cup of kindness, yes
For auld lang syne
For auld lang syne

10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1

Old acquaintance be forgot
And never brought to mind
Should old acquaintance be forgot
And days of auld lang syne

For auld lang syne, my dear
For auld lang syne
We'll take a cup of kindness yet
For auld lang syne

For auld lang syne, my dear
For auld lang syne
We'll take a cup of kindness yet
For auld lang syne

Happy New Year, baby

5, 4, 3, 2

Should old acquaintance be forgot
And never brought to mind
Should old acquaintance be forgot
And days of auld land syne

Does anybody really know the words?
Might as well sing along

Happy New Year, baby
Happy New Year, baby

Should old acquaintance be forgot
And never brought to mind
Should old acquaintance be forgot
And days of auld land syne

Happy New Year to you and your friends
And have a drink for me
Happy New Year to you too
And have a drink for me
