Track Name: Santa's Little Helper
Santa’s little helper, won’t you work faster
C’mon build that toy soldier, finish off that toy car
Fly past Alaska, down through America
Flying t’wards Australia, give ‘em to the VB Brothers

I mean it, won’t you turn that little wrench and
Build those toys, and then dispense
You need to work a bit faster, if you’re to be Santa’s helper
Then fly straight across the Nullabor, drop off in Maroochydore
Fly down through Canberra, on the way to Erica

Said he was Santa’s Little Helper, Helping Santa
Santa’s Little Helper in the heart of Australia

Santa said
“If you want to help me,
You’ll have to know how to build the toys.
How to fly around the world,
help me deliver to the girls and boys”

I’m just Santa’s Little Helper, in the heart of Australia
Then delivering in Africa, on to America
Midnight arrival, cookies for survival
Gotta work faster, be a good Santa’s helper

VB, Ho ho ho, ho ho ho ho ho!

Santa’s Little Helper troddin' through the land, wo-ho-ooh!
Give the big red man a hand
Troddin' through the land, yea-hea, yea-ea!

Said he was Santa’s Little Helper, Christmas over Hanukkah
Workin’ with the other elves, hammerin’ the sleigh bells
Out of his workshop, prep the sled and on you hop
Gotta keep the reindeer fed, if you want them to pull the sled

VB, Ho ho ho, ho ho ho ho ho!

Leavin’ from the North Pole, take the reigns and take control
Ridin’ with the reindeer, spreading out the Christmas cheer
Cookies on arrival, Carrots for survival
Santa’s Little Helper, helping Santa.
Track Name: I Ate The Cherries
I ate the cherries
As I decorated the Christmas tree
I drank the sherry
As I decorated the Christmas tree

Yeah, all around in my home town
Power bills they not going down
The reason there is plain to see
It’s from the lights on the Christmas tree
Yeah the lights on the Christmas trees
So I say

I ate the cherries
Waiting to open my presents
I drank the sherry
Excited to know my gift’s contents

I wonder what Santa got me
Maybe socks? I don’t know
Every time I sneak a peak
Mama comes and she tell me “No”
Wait ‘til Christmas morning then you’ll know
And so

I ate the cherries
Waiting to open all my presents
I drank the sherry
Excited to know my gift’s contents

Santa came my way one day
All the way to my home town, yeah
I got so excited I couldn’t calm down
Just jumping up and down
So I went, I went, I went to bed and I say
In the morning I will play

I ate the cherries
Wondering what is under the tree
I drank the sherry
Wondering what Santa left for me

Curiosity got the better of me
And what is to be must be
I snuck out of bed and down the hall
Trying to catch Santa in the act
But he saw me, took all my presents all back
I say

I ate the cherries
But that’s all I get for being naughty
I drank the sherry
Santa took my gifts away from me
Track Name: Christmas Time
Christmas time
Go straight to bed
Don’t ever get up before
You hear ho ho ho ho

Christmas time
Cooking the food
Apples are stewed and plum
Pudding’s on the go
Custard on the stove

I have bought
Sherry wine to leave out for
The man in red
Christmas songs
in my mind
Sleigh bells ringing on his sled

Christmas time
Put up the tree
Fill me with glee at home
And it won’t depart;
That joy in my heart

Christmas time you make me feel so fine
You keep me rocking all of the time
Christmas you make me feel so grand
Santa Claus comin’ with his reindeer friend
Christmas time never make me feel sad
There’s too much happiness to ever feel bad
Christmas time you make me feel so fine
You give out your presents and I’ll give out mine
Christmas time you give me whole heap of zing
Whole heap of zing mek me want to sing
Christmas time you really show all your love
Your kind of loving like a blessing from above
Christmas time I love you right from the start
Right from the start with all of my heart
Christmas time in a VB style
Christmas time in a Van Bloom style, yeah

Give me Christmas time, let the tinsel shine
Give me Christmas time, give me sherry wine
Give me Christmas time because it make me feel fine
Mek me feel fine all of the time
Christmas time you make me feel so fine
You give out your presents and I’ll give out mine
The ham smoked, the egg nog yolk
Fruit cake and candy canes for every little bloke
Track Name: No Pudding No Pie
No pudding no pie. No turkey no thigh
No pudding no pie. No turkey no thigh

‘cause, ‘cause I remember when we used to sit
around the table in the kitchen
mama mama serving all the food to eat
as we would pass the peas and carve the meat
Good spreads we had and, good times we’ve froffed
Throughout the day yeah
But just remember to try and pace yourself
So you don’t vomit the night away yeah

No pudding no pie. No turkey no thigh
Ey little darlin’ don’t spill no beers
No turkey no thigh

Said - said - said I remember when we used to sit
On the veranda after dinner, yeah!
And then Adrian would turn on the Christmas lights
And it would make the backyard oh so bright yeah
Then Mum’d crack open bottle of cheap champagne
Pour us each a glass or two, yeah!
Slowly our feet stop listening to our brain
But still we try to push on through

Keep telling ourselves
Everything's gonna be all right!
Everything's gonna be all right!
Everything's gonna be all right, yeah!
Everything's gonna be all right!
Pass out early on Christmas night
Staring at the tree and the tinsel bright
Sleep 10 hours and you just might
Beat the hangover in the morning light yeah!

No pudding no pie
In this great future, you can't forget your flask;
No Turkey no thigh
