Track Name: Julie Andrews
Last day at school, it was time for a break
Xmas coming soon, I made one big mistake.
I thought I would please the kids once for all
Back home they would say: "our teacher's so cool"
So I plugged the old tv, I turned the lights off, played my DVD of Lord of the Rings.
No explosion of joy, no hooray for me, no reaction at all, they kept staring at me.

Kids, what's wrong with you: there's no lesson today, we'll watch a movie!
Hey, I'll tell you what: if you remain that quiet, I'll get you candies

Yet they started to moan, some did even yawn. Just as Frodon was on, the spirit was gone.
A few of them raised their hands and I said: "What is it now children???" and so lucy spoke: "Sir, it is nice of you but to tell you the truth we wanna watch something starring Julie Andrews!"

We wanna sing with Julie Andrews before the bells ringing
And if you don't agree we'll suggest you where to stick up you candies!
Track Name: Heimlich Maneuver
I don't mind you finishing my bourbon and my brandy
I don't mind you smoking cigars in my Maserati
But you've got to put that skirt back on

I don't care if you want to go out with my friend Jerry
I don't think his Mum is gonna love you as much as me
You are not the perfect bride-to-be

But you're mature enough to know
And dad...he died a year ago

Yeah he choked to death in the middle of Christmas dinner
We were just too drunk to help him with Heimlich maneuver
Strangely, we've had worse evenings that year

Oh please mamma don't go out tonight, stay with the family
Jerry, he can wait and find a date who isn't sixty
We kinda miss you since you feel so free

But you're mature enough to know
Or at least I'd like to think so.
Track Name: The Train To Jeruzalem
Some people go to New York
Some people spend it at work
Some people spend it alone
For Christmas, I won't stay home

I'm taking the train to Jeruzalem

But no lamentation wall
Respect and land for all
In Jesus blood I will crawl
Just as the snow starts to fall

I'm taking the train to Jeruzalem

Under the moon I'm drinking
Slovenian wine and thinking:
If Jesus wants to be back, he'll surely follow my track
And he'll take a train from Jerusalem

And he'll take a train from Jerusalem
