#MusicMonday – There’s a twinkle in your eyes…

Music Monday

Whoooop Whooooop!!!!! Yes it’s time for #MusicMonday and yes it’s December so I’m selecting some of my favourite Christmas tunes! I do this under the banner of Drew Weldon’s Music Monday.

Last December, I shared my two all-time favourite Christmas tunes. So this I thought I’d share some more throughout December (sorry Drew). Today’s choice I had the luck and joy of hearing the singer perform live on release day a couple of weeks ago. First “live” performance I’ve experienced in a good while even if it was via Zoom… enjoy!

Hang Your Lights by Jamie Cullum

Sing, sing, sing of the mistletoe
Dance, dance, dance by the fire
Keep the golden songs alive
With an old church choir
And you can hang your lights on me

Love, love, love under frosty skies
Arm in arm in the snow
There’s a twinkle in your eyes
‘Cause when you know, you know
And you can hang your lights on me
You can hang your lights on me

Hang your lights (hang your lights)
Hang your lights (hang your lights)
You can hang your lights on me
Put yourself at the top of my tree
And you can hang your lights on me

Bring, bring, bring down a gleaming crown
Raise a toast to one and old
Shut the curtains and the door
I want your loving not your war
You can hang your lights on me
You can hang your lights on me

Hang your lights (hang your lights)
Hang your lights (hang your lights)
You can hang your lights on me
Put yourself at the top of my tree

Oh, hang your lights (hang your lights)
Hang your lights (hang your lights)
You gotta hang your lights on me
Just put yourself at the top of my tree

Oh
Hang your lights (hang your lights)
Hang your lights (hang your lights)
You gotta hang your lights on me
Put yourself at the top of my tree
You can hang your lights on me
