    My son gave me this stumper today --

    The names of most Christmas carols can be found somewhere in their lyrics. Below is listed the first two word of a line that immediately follows the one in which a carol's title appears. How many can you identify?

    For instance: "Oh, what..." would be Jingle Bells.

    I'm going crazy --- stuck on these...... CAN YOU HELP??? :)

    "Giddy-yap, giddy-yap..."

    "Right down...."

    "It doesn't...."

    "If only....."

    Here are more -- I've figured these out! :)

    "Fa La...."

    "Had a...."

    "Just like...."

    "Underneath the..."

    "It's Christmas...."

    "With a....."

    "How still...."

    "Let your...."

    "He sees...."

    "All is...."

    Thanks for any help!

    Giddy yap giddy yap appears in the song Sleigh Ride..but its not the second line in my version:
    Sleigh Ride

    Just hear those sleigh bells jingle-ing
    Ring ting tingle-ing too
    Come on, it's lovely weather
    For a sleigh ride together with you
    Outside the snow is falling
    And friends are calling "You Hoo"
    Come on, it's lovely weather
    For a sleigh ride together with you
    Giddy-yap giddy-yap giddy-yap let's go
    Let's look at the snow
    We're riding in a wonderland of snow
    Giddy-yap giddy-yap giddy-yap it's grand

    OHhh your son is a tricky little devil :) I found giddy yap Look on my first post I did an edit. And I found "It Doesnt" Its in:

    Let It Snow

    Oh the weather outside is frightful
    But the fire is so delightful
    And since we've no place to go
    Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!

    IT DOESN'T show signs of stopping
    And I've bought some corn for popping
    The lights are turned way down low
    Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow

    If only now this one will be hard to find....

    I had even thought of that one, but I must have had the wrong verse humming in my head because it didn't fit.

    "If only....." I keep thinking of "if I only had a brain!".... of course, Wizard of Oz songs aren't Christmas songs!!! :)

    Isn't there a line, "if only in my dreams"? I just can't make it fit.....

    I'll Be Home For Christmas
    Kim Gannon, Walter Kent (c) 1943
    I'll be home for Christmas
    You can count on me
    Please have snow and mistletoe
    and presents on the tree

    Christmas Eve will find me
    Where the love light gleams
    I'll be home for Christmas
    If only in my dreams

    Here Comes Santa Claus
    Gene Autry, Oakley Haldeman (c) 1947
    Here comes Santa Claus!
    Here comes Santa Claus!
    Right down Santa Claus Lane!
    Vixen and Blitzen and all his reindeer
    are pulling on the reins.
    Bells are ringing, children singing;
    All is merry and bright.
    Hang your stockings and say your prayers,
    'Cause Santa Claus comes tonight.

    Here comes Santa Claus!
    Here comes Santa Claus!
    Right down Santa Claus Lane!
    He's got a bag that is filled with toys
    for the boys and girls again.
    Hear those sleigh bells jingle jangle,
    What a beautiful sight.
    Jump in bed, cover up your head,
    'Cause Santa Claus comes tonight

    Let It Snow!
    Sammy Cahn, Jule Styne (c) 1945
    Oh, the weather outside is frightful,
    But the fire is so delightful,
    And since we've no place to go,
    Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow.

    It doesn't show signs of stopping,
    And I brought some corn for popping;
    The lights are turned way down low,
    Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow.

    When we finally say good night,
    How I'll hate going out in the storm;
    But if you really hold me tight,
    All the way home I'll be warm.

    The fire is slowly dying,
    And, my dear, we're still good-bye-ing,
    But as long as you love me so.
    Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow.

    ...and...

    Tennessee Christmas
    Amy Grant, Gary Chapman (c) 1983
    Come on, weather man,
    give us a forecast snowy white
    Can't you hear the prayers
    of every childlike heart tonight
    Rockies are calling, Denver snow falling
    Somebody said it's four feet deep
    But it doesn't matter, give me the laughter
    I'm gonna choose to keep.

    Another tender Tennessee Christmas
    The only Christmas for me
    Where the love circles around us
    Like the gifts around our tree
    Well, I know there's more snow up in Colorado
    Than my roof will ever see
    But a tender Tennessee Christmas
    is the only Christmas for me.

    Every now and then I get a wandering urge to see
    Maybe California, maybe Tinsel Town's for me
    There's a parade there, we'd have it made there
    Bring home a tan for New Year's Eve
    Sure sounds inviting, awfully exciting
    Still I think I'm gonna keep.

    Another tender Tennessee Christmas
    The only Christmas for me
    Where the love circles around us
    Like the gifts around our tree
    Well, they say in L.A. it's a warm holiday
    It's the only place to be
    But a tender Tennessee Christmas
    is the only Christmas for me.

    heheheehehe..... I won't tell!!! But you had to know WHICH ones to look in to find the correct words. :)

    And here I was wondering just how you knew the "Tennessee Christmas" song.... :)
     
  13. "Giddy-yap, giddy-yap..."

    That's from Sleigh Ride...normally heard as an insturmental song, it actually has lyrics.

    Outside the snow is falling and friends are calling yoo-hoo
    come on it's lovely weather for a sleigh-ride together with you
    Giddy-up, giddy-up let's go,
    let's look at the show
    we're riding in a wonderland of snow
    giddy-up, giddy-up it's grand
    just holding your hand

    "He sees......" you when you're sleeping.
    He knows when you're awake.
    He knows if you've been bad or good.
    So, be good for goodness sake!

    Oh, You better watch out.
    You better not cry.
    You better not pout.
    I'm telling you why....
    SANTA CLAUS is coming to town!
