about

'Merry Christmas To You' is the first Christmas Single by Dublin Rock 'n' Roll band The Aluskas. 50% of all proceeds will go to Focus Ireland, a homeless charity in Ireland. The A-side is an upbeat number in the style of 70's festive hits like 'I Wish It Could Be Christmas Everyday' (Wizzard), 'Merry Xmas Everybody' (Slade) & 'Step Into Christmas' (Elton John). The B-side, 'Walking In The Snow' on the other hand is a more laidback festive affair which brings to mind the sound of pre-rock era legends like Bing Crosby, Nat King Cole & Frank Sinatra. No Christmas playlist is complete without both tracks.

Track Name: Merry Christmas To You
MERRY CHRISTMAS TO YOU

Merry Christmas to you
Merry Christmas to you
If you’re lucky your wishes will come true
Merry Christmas to you

Christmas time when Santa calls
Waiting all year for the snow to fall
If you want to come away
Then we can take off riding in a sleigh
Can you hear those jingle bells?
Here comes Santa and his little elves
Little children filled with glee
And brightly coloured lights up on the tree

Merry Christmas to you
Merry Christmas to you
If you’re lucky your wishes will come true
Merry Christmas to you

Snow is getting heavier
Roads have been cut off
Had to hitch a sleigh-ride home
Through the freezing fog
Santa comes this Christmas Eve for you and me

See the smoke rise from the roofs
And the tracks left from the horses hooves
Turn the lights off, don’t forget
And get those little children off to bed

Merry Christmas to you
Merry Christmas to you
If you’re lucky your wishes will come true
Merry Christmas to you
(And a happy New Year!)
Track Name: Walking In The Snow
WALKING IN THE SNOW

We could go walking
Spend hours together talking
Or I could go running just to keep up with you
I wake up and I’m yawning
You’re waiting in the morning
You know I’d be jaded if it wasn’t for you

Let’s go out, go walking in the snow
Where the wild winds blow (where the wild winds blow)
And we’ll wrap up warm before its time to go

You know it’s got me thinking
Maybe later we’ll go drinking
And I’ll end up singing your name under the stars
Oh don’t leave me sighing
No more wasting time, no
I’m tired of being lonely without you

Let’s go out, go walking in the snow
Where the wild winds blow (where the wild winds blow)
And we’ll wrap up warm before its time to go

Oh, let it snow
Let it snow
