We wish you a sober Christmas

and an AA New Year!
 
Good tidings we bring!
for drunks who don't drink,
We can help any alkie
pour it down the sink!
 
Now bring us a cup of coffee
Now bring us a cup of coffee
Now bring us a cup of coffee
And a meeting each day!
 
Let normals drink booze,
We don't need a drop.
With 12 Steps and meetings,
We all can stay stopped!
 
We won't go until we get it,
We won't go until we get it,
We won't go until we get it,
We need meetings to live!
 
away in a manger
 
Away in a detox
just a pillow and bed
the poor little alky
lay down his tired head
 
Twelve steppers came in
just to tell that they had
once been just like him
and heard them say
 
come join us in AA
here's what you will find
a group you can trust
when you’re in a bad bind
a life without booze
is a life you can share
at your home group,
we all really care.
 
We three kings
 
We three kings of orient are
Bearing gifts we traverse afar
we delayed it never made it
stopped at a roadside bar.
 
O oh, bar of wonder, Bar of night
Bar with country juke box bright,
Who needs myrrh, Gold and incense?
Trade them for Miller Lite.
 
We three kings woke up the next morn
Our heads a mess, our clothes were torn
We relented, we repented,
Found the AA Star.
 
O oh Star of wonder, star of life
Star to get us through the strife
Yes we see you, yes we need you
Thank you for the gift of life.
 
Choices, now I have them galore
Never did I have them before
Drink came first unquenchable thirst
back to the liquor store.
 
Now I'm free and have a great time.
Not afraid of committing a crime
I can walk straight, I can keep a date
Even sing songs that rhyme.
 
AA's over 50 years old
It gives me more than mountains of gold
A chance to live, learn how to give
So many hands to hold
 
Have yourself a merry Christmas
 
Have yourself a merry AA Christmas
May your heart be light
From now on our troubles
Will be out of sight
 
Have yourself a merry AA Christmas
Make the yuletide play
From now on our troubles will be miles away
(Thanks to AA)
 
We don't need all those oldies days
Wet and moldy days of yore
These won't be "Alcohol days"
They'll be holidays for sure
 
Through the year we'll all stick together
If the fates allow
Day by day we'll make it through some how
So have yourself a merry AA Christmas Now!
 
The first Noel
 
The first little drink my sponsor did say,
Would take my three year chip away.
Be it whiskey or beer, red wine or white
It'll end with me puking all through the night
Little drink, little drink
The first little drink -
It's an idea that really Stinks!
 
Deck the halls
 
Deck the dash with beer and wine
D D D D D D, DWI
Wreck the car In no time
D D D D D D, DWI
Officer I hear you sing,
D D D, D D D, DWI
Breathe into this little thing,
D D D D D D,
 
O come o come Emmanuel
 
O come my friends or parents please
an make the jailor turn his keys
I'm lying in this jail cell here
I lost the wheel to save a falling beer
Rejoice! Rejoice!
Here comes a wealthy friend,
Enabling me to drink again.
 
God rest ye merry gentlemen
 
AA is where you ought to go
When drinking is in your way
It tells you what you need to know
To get you through the day
It leads you to your Higher power
When you've gone astray
O come now and join us in AA
Come to AA
O come now and join us in AA.
 
Jingle Bells
 
Jingling keys, jingling keys,
That is what you'll hear
When you get to rehab
The end of your career
Of Alcohol, self abuse,
Life in disarray
Then you can discover
The healing of AA.
