DATE OF RELEASE: 1989



THIS ONES FOR THE CHILDREN

This is a very serious message so all of you please listen.
There are some people living in this world
They have no food to eat
They have no place to go
But we all are God's children
We've got to learn to love one another
Just remember, they could be us
Remember, we all are brothers

I'm not trying to darken up your day
But help others in need
And show them there's a better way

This one's for the children
The children of the world
This one's for the children
May God keep them in His throne

Many people are happy
And many people are sad
Some people have many things
That others can only wish they had
So for the sake of the children
Show them love's the only way to go
'Cause they are tomorrow and people, they've got to know

I'm not trying to darken up your day
But help others in need
And show them there's a better way

This one's for the children
The children of the world
This one's for the children
May God keep them in His throne

This one's for the children
The children of the world
This one's for the children
May God keep them in His throne



LAST NIGHT I SAW SANTA CLAUS

I hope everybody's havin' a merry christmas, I know I am, hey!
I feel good, I feel alright, hey!

Last night I couldn't believe my eyes, y'all
I saw a big fat man in a red disguise, y'all
He had a fuzzy white beard and big black boots
He had a pack on his back and red caboose, now... check this out
I tried to sleep, but my eyes wouldn't shut
You wouldn't believe it Mama, guess what!

Chorus:
Last night I saw Santa Claus
Sneakin' out of my back door
Last night I saw Santa Claus
What's he got in his great big bag for me?
What's he got for me?

He had crazy long hair and a red guitar, y'all
I never knew Santa Claus was a rock and roll star, now
Look-a-here... hey!
I asked my Mama could I join his band
She just screamed and yelled... she don't understand

Chorus
I wonder what he's got for me

Hey Jon, what's Santa doin'? He's pullin' somethin' out of his bag... what is it?
Uh, it looks like... a saxophone!
Hey Santa!

Look-a-here
I tried to sleep, but my eyes wouldn't shut
I told all my friends... guess what!

Chorus
I wonder what he's got for me

Blow, Santa!
Can't even sleep at night
Talkin' 'bout Santa Claus
Hey, ooh!
Play it one more time
Hey!
Sounds so good
Hey fellas, let's jam!



ILL BE MISSING YOU COME CHRISTMAS

Did you ever really start to cry over something you just wrote?
Well I'm writing you, my dear St. Nick, it's the saddest little note.
Is it fair come this Christmas Eve that I should be alone,
when she knows how much I'm missing her, would you kindly bring her home?

This boy's letter to Santa Claus it's gonna tear him up,
when he reads how much I'm missing her it's gonna tear him up.
I'm sure if all his reindeers could arrange room on his sleigh
then I'd receive a big bright package and she'd be mine today.

I'll be missing you come Christmas, wishing hard, my dear,
missing you come Christmas, wishing you were here.

Did you ever really start to cry over something that was said?
Well, I'm writing you, dear Santa, it's the saddest thing you ever read.
Is it fair come this Christmas time that I should be without you,
you know how much I miss you, girl, won't you kindly help me through?

This boy's letter to Santa Claus it's gonna tear him up,
when he reads how much I'm missing her it's gonna tear him up.
I'm sure he'll write a special note to remind him Christmas Eve
that he has to mend a broken heart that believes in make believe.

Right above his VIP we'll be ranking number one,
no sadder request will he receive he'll know it has to be done.

Hey, Santa, if you're my friend, please take heed, it's not pretend.
This boy's letter....
I'm sure if all ....

Oh, Santa, I'll be missing you come Christmas, wishing hard, my dear,
missing you come Christmas, wishing you were here.



I STILL BELIEVE IN SANTA CLAUS

I still believe in Santa Claus

maybe thats just becuase Im sitll a child at heart.

and I still believe in old St. Nick, but then again maybe that's the
trick we need, we need to retreat to a world of make believe.

Let's make this Christmas last forever, shine a little love along the way
for the sake of all children let love show us the way.

I still....

This time of year is for the giving, this time of year is for the joy.
May joy and happiness be with you always this day.
I still....



MERRY, MERRY CHRISTMAS

Peace to the world from the New Kids On The Block, we are here,
we're spreading all our joy, spreading all our love and our cheers.
Cheerful sleigh bells ring, choir children sing,
it's peace and love and harmony we bring.

Hail, merry Christmas, merry, merry Christmas
to all our sisters and brothers
Hail, merry Christmas, merry, merry Christmas
let all of the world join our hands.

There's a feeling in the air, it's beginning to look like Christmas everywhere.
Hear the gentle sounds of the snowflakes trickle down without a care.
People stop and stare, the Christmas tree is there,
a star on top which nothing can't compare.

Hail, merry Christmas, merry, merry Christmas
it's all about peace and understanding
Hail, merry Christmas, merry, merry Christmas
let all of the world lend a hand

A time for me, a time for you,
there's enough of love to last our whole life through
Hail, merry...



CRISTMAS SONG (CHESTNUTS ROASTING ON AN OPEN FIRE)

Chestnuts roasting on an open fire, Jack Frost nipping at your nose.
Yuletide carols being sung by a choir and folks dressed up like Eskimos.
Everybody knows, a turkey and some mistletoe help to make the season bright.
Tiny tots with their eyes all aglow will find it hard to sleep tonight.
They know that Santa's on his way.
He's loaded lots of toys and goodies on his sleigh.
And every mother's child is gonna spy to see if reindeer really know how to fly.
And so I'm offering this simple phrase to kids from 1 to 92
Although it's been said many times, many ways: Merry Christmas to you.



FUNKY, FUNKY, XMAS

Ho, ho, ho, oh, little train, my little elf, another great Christmas.
Ah, man, it's boring, it's boring, same thing every year,
so let's have a funky Christmas!

Have a funky funky Christmas, have a funky funky Christmas.

Funky Christmas and a funky new year, I swear we got ourselves a party here

Should I stop - nah cool - here's more of this song, a funky Christmas melody
'cause Jordan K feels so Christmasy
Throw your hands in the air pause, kick the ballistics Santa Claus

Have a funky...
Sneaking downstairs on Christmas Eve
I saw a sight that you just wouldn't believe
St. Nick by the fireplace dusting off his head with a frown on his face
He said hay - said what - he said you - I said what
He said you left the fire burning and I burnt my butt
so now I've learned you've got to turn the fireplace down
so Santa won't get burned

Have a funky...

Have a funky...
Slipping and sliding through the city streets
I'll be in town getting down to the Christmas beat
it's Danny D I'm here with Christmas cheer
no feeling to end the party of the year
it's going I'm showing fresh rhymes I'm throwing
it's snowing outside but we ho-ho-hoing
Santa's on the way, sleigh bells are ringing, swinging, everybody start singing

Have a funky....

It's Christmas, can you swing this?
Funky, dope jam top on your Christmas list, do you dig this?

with Donnie D doing it?

Have a funky....

Ho, ho, ho, this is the MC Santa Claus and my elf little Joe
Yeah, merry Christmas, merry Christmas, we gonna kick the ballistics
of our Christmas wishes.



WHITE CHRISTMAS

I'm dreaming of a white Christmas just like the ones I used to know,
where the tree tops glisten and children listen to hear
sleigh bells in the snow.

I'm dreaming of a white Christmas with every Christmas card I write,
may your days be merry and bright and may all your Christmases be white.

I'm dreaming of a white Christmas just like the ones I used to know,
where the tree tops glisten and children listen to hear
sleigh bells in the snow.

I'm dreaming of a white Christmas with every Christmas card I write,
may your days be merry and bright and may all your Christmases be white.



LITTLE DRUMMER BOY

Come, they told me, pa-romp-pa-pom-pom,

TONIGHT

Remember when we said, girl, please don't go,
and how I'd be loving you forever,
taught you 'bout hangin' tough as long as you got the right stuff,
didn't we, girls, ooh, didn't we, girls, aah?

Well, I guess, it's a brandnew day after all
every time we hear the curtain call,
see the girls with the curls in the hair,
the buttons and the pins and the loud fanfares.
Tonight, tonight.

Remember when we traveled round the world,
there were a lot of people and girls,
fan mail from everywhere showed us how you care,
didn't it, girls, ooh, didn't it, girls, aah?

Well, I guess...

(Spoken:) Sounds good, hey fellas, let's do it, here we go.
La-la-la-la-la-la tonight, la-la-la-la-la-la tonight.
Tonight, tonight (repeat & fade)



BABY I BELIEVE IN YOU

Baby, I believe in you and every little thing you do.
Every time we kiss it always feels like this, I believe in you.
Baby, I believe in us and every little inch of our trust.
Whether I'm around, you never let me down, I believe in you.

Maybe I might sound crazy for the way I feel about you,
but, baby, you're just so amazing and I'm so in love, girl, with you.
I believe in you.

Maybe I ....
Oh, girl, there's something about you.
Maybe I ....

I believe in you, I believe in you, all the things you do, I believe in you
(repeat ad lib & fade)



CALL IT WHAT YOU WANT

I can tell you've been watching me, girl, I've been watching you too.
I got the feeling you want my love, I must admit, I want your love too.
Call it what you want, baby, girl, I call it love.
Call it what you want, darling, I still call it love.

You know there's something about you, girl, what it is it's kind a hard to say.
I only wish we could get away, give me love, and I'll lead the way.
Call it....

Na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na. Na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na.
It's so groovy just to be with you.
It's so good, babe, just to dance or anything that you wanna do.
Na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na. Na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na.
I can feel it, I can feel it, I can feel it, I can feel that love, girl.
It's so groovy just to be with you.
It's so good, babe, just to dance or anything that you wanna do.
Call it what you want, I'll still call it love.
Call it anything that you want to, girl, I'll still call it love.
You can call it this, you can call it that, you can call it anything, girl.

Call it.... (repeat chorus & fade)



LETS TRY AGAIN

I've heard of true loves that lasted forever, I guess there is a way,
and I've heard of true loves that needed each other more and more each day.
What is love when there's no one that cares?
Next time you need my love I'll be there, be right by your side.
Let's try it again, try it again, let's try it again,
my love for you, it has no end.
Let's try it again, 'till the end, all because I love you.

I've heard of two loves that stayed with each other,
didn't wander through the night,
and I've heard of two loves that prayed for each other,
didn't argue, fuss or fight.
Now I know just what love's all about.
Next time you need my love I won't doubt, doubt your love again.
Let's try.... (repeat & fade)

GAMES

Somebody said somebody wouldn't last too long, somebody's still going strong.
Somebody said somebody was all a front, somebody's still talking junk.
Think of what you say, think of what you do,
think of what you try to put us through.
We're just singing our song.
When you put us down, it ain't gonna get you nowhere.
We're positive and no matter what you think we really care.
Oh, ee, oh, oh, oh, games, games, games, games, games.

Somebody said somebody worked too hard, somebody gotta charm some hearts.
Somebody said everybody's gonna wait and see, what's gonna be is gonna be.
Think of .....

Games, oh, ee, oh, oh, oh, games, games, games, games, games.
(RAP:) Yeah, people keep on fronting on the Beantown posse,
but it's time to step up to the stand,
'cause we ain't going out like that.
Back, huh, stronger than ever, did you think we'd sever?
Never, we're too clever to be taken down clown
by your ignorant state of mind, I ain't blind but
every time I look I find you dissin' a mission that
strictly be righteous, we gotta fight this so now I think I might just
take a stand, man, like never before, and I'm sure
that we'll endure so now it's time to even the score
I hear you knocking me but you ain't shocking me
'cause jealousy is telling me that you're just jocking me
so keep on talking skee, with pride I'm walking see,
because on anybody's block is where I'm gonna be rockin' gee.
Don't play those games, oh, ee, oh, oh, oh, stop playing those games.
(repeat ad lib & fade)



TIME IS ON OUR SIDE

Girl, there's more to love than meets the eye,
girl, there's more to what I feel inside.
And if I told you, would you be my girl, for you I'd travel round the world.
Time is on our side, girl, you're my one true love, girl,
we've come too far to ever be just friends.
Time is on our side, girl, let's show the whole world,
love is the answer and time is our closest friend.

If I sent you flowers, would you walk away,
or would it be enough to make you stay?
Even though we're young, girl, one thing's for sure,
in time our love will endure.
Time is ...

Babe, what would you say, time brings us closer every day.
Time is ...
Time is ...



WHERE DO I GO FROM HERE?

Where do I go from here? Do I tell you I still love you?
And where do I go from here? Do I tell you I still miss you?
Can't you see, you're a part of me?
Don't you know, I can't let you go?
My problems are few when I am with you, what should I do?
I don't know, I don't know.

Where...
Picture me not loving you, picture you, what you're going through.
My problems....

Where...
Where do I go, where do I go from here?
Where do I go, where do I go from here?
Tell me do I tell you that I love you,
tell me do I tell you that I need you,
where do I go from here?
Tell me... (repeat & fade)



STAY WITH ME BABY

Yeah, man, oh, we're going to have some fun with this one, man,
and I don't know where it's gonna take us,
but it's a long way from Boston, man, here we go.

Stay with me baby, stay with me baby, me whole life long.
Stay with me baby, stay with me baby, I can do you no wrong.

Sure me saw you walking down the street,
you were looking so good, I said you were looking so sweet,
then me didn't know what to say, all I know is that you're
brightening up a beautiful day, ah.

(Spoken:) Oh, yeah, wer're groovin' now, man, oh, yeah!

Nobody can tell me my baby's not for real,
they don't know just how she feels,
what a girl, me pretty little thing, oh!

Stay....

I would never repay you for the love you've given to me,
me play every day and stay with me for eternity.
The only thing that we know for sure, me could never ever doubt you, ah.

Nobody can tell me my baby's not the best,
she's the best, oh, she's so fresh, what a girl me pretty little thing, oh!

Stay..... (repeat & fade)
We be jammin......



FUNNY FEELING

All I asked for was your hand, love was in demand, how was I to understand?
Then you told me how you feel, it was so unreal, guess, it's time for
me to reveal the way I feel.

Gotta funny feeling that you don't even, even love me (Don't love me)
Gotta funny feeling that you don't even, even care.

We assured each other at the start, forever in our hearts,
you and I would never part.
Then you...
Gotta funny ....
Gotta funny ... (repeat ad lib & fade)



NEVER GONNA FALL IN LOVE AGAIN

Never gonna fall in love again, never gonna fall in love again,
never gonna fall in love again, never gonna fall in love again.

You said you'd never ever try to break my heart,
you told a lie, you tore my love apart.
You said you've always wanted someone just like me,
you let me down, baby, you set me free.
Whether it's wrong, whether it's right, won't take me through the night,
told me that you loved me so and you'd never let me go.
You played the game you're not the same, I never thought you'd ever change,
if it's got to be this way I'm never gonna fall in love.
Never gonna fall in love again, never gonna fall in love again,
never gonna fall in love again, never gonna fall in love.
Never gonna fall in love again, never gonna fall in love again,
never gonna fall in love again, never gonna fall in love. (Spoken:) Break one!

When I heard this crazy stuff about this other guy,
I didn't believe it, had to see it in my eyes.
When I saw you and him, you passed me by,
he's not your friend, he's the other guy.
Whether...
Break two!

(Rap:) I'm never gonna fall 'cause I fell, loving you for me was like hell.
How could you play me like a champ, a tramp, a cramp?
Girl, you did me worse than a food stamp.
You told me I could trust you, if I didn't I would crush you,
but never thought that one day I'd bust you
walking in the sand hand in hand with another man
I know your game plan and now I understand
love so deep is like sleep and it will leave you blind
but I see how you're living so baby next time
what'cha gonna do now that the tables are turned around
I'm living swell and now you wanna be down
Step off 'cause baby I've learned if you're
messing with fire then you're gonna get burned
You still look dope but a dope I'm not
I can't get with you 'cause you're too hot

Never gonna ... (repeat ad lib & fade)
