Have Yourself a Little Music at Christmas

I'm wrapping presents and tying bows
Haven't got time for regular life
But here's to you with a HO HO HO!
It's not easy being a Christmas wife

 Have a jolly time.

John Coltrane, with Elvin Jones, Jimmy Garrison and McCoy Tyner - What Child is This? (Greensleeves)

Bessie Smith - At the Christmas Ball (1925)  Have you ever been to a Christmas Ball? Me neither. It sounds fancy!

Leadbelly - Christmas is A-Coming

Tom Waits - Silent Night & Christmas Card from a Hooker in Minneapolis

Charles Brown - Merry Christmas Baby

Blind Blake - Lonesome Christmas Blues (1929)
