about

'Warmest Christmas Wishes', Engelbert Humperdinck’s brand new Christmas album, features 14 heartfelt holiday songs, including 2 brand new originals written especially for this album – “Christmas for the Family” and “Around the Christmas Tree”.

Much like its predecessor, 'A Merry Christmas With Engelbert Humperdinck', 'Warmest Christmas Wishes' is a combination of classic, new and unexpected songs. Traditional holiday songs like “Silent Night” and “O Tannenbaum” sit next to American Yule standards like “Please Come Home for Christmas” and “White Christmas”. Fans can expect to hear the latter reinvented in a Django Reinhardt-inspired swing arrangement. Engelbert delivers Christmas cheer with contemporary tunes such as Chris Rea’s “Driving Home for Christmas” and Gilbert O’Sullivan’s “Christmas Song”. Engelbert’s two new original songs “A Christmas for the Family” and “Around the Christmas Tree” are bound to become instant holiday favorites. In all, there are 14 new holiday tunes to celebrate Christmas joy, delivered in Engelbert Humperdinck’s inimitable style.

Track Name: Please Come Home for Christmas
Bells will be ringing this sad, sad news
Oh, what a Christmas to have the blues
My baby's gone, I have no friends
To wish me greetings once again

Choirs will be singing Silent Night
Christmas carols by candlelight
Please, come home for Christmas
Please, come home for Christmas 
If not for Christmas, by New Year's night 

Friends and relations send salutations 
Sure as the stars shine above 
This is Christmas, yes, Christmas my dear 
The time of year to be with the ones you love 

Then won't you tell me, you'll never more roam 
Christmas and New Year's will find you home 
There'll be no more sorrow, no grief and pain 
And I'll be happy, happy once again 

Friends and relations send salutations 
Sure as the stars shine above 
But this is Christmas, yes, Christmas my dear 
The time of year to be with the ones you love

Then won't you tell me, you'll never more roam 
Christmas and New Year's will find you home 
There'll be no more sorrow, no grief and pain 
And I'll be happy, happy once again
And I'll be happy, happy once again
Track Name: Driving Home for Christmas
I'm driving home for Christmas
Oh, I can't wait to see those faces
I'm driving home for Christmas
Well I'm moving down that line

And it's been so long but I will get there
I sing this song to pass the time away
Driving in my car
Driving home for Christmas

It's gonna take some time but I'll get there

Top to toe in tailbacks
Oh, I got red lights all around
But soon there'll be a freeway
Get my feet on holy ground

So I sing for you though you can't hear me
When I get through and feel you near me
Driving in my car
Driving home for Christmas
Driving home for Christmas
With a thousand memories

I take look at the driver next to me
He's just the same
Just the same

Driving, driving, driving
Driving, driving, driving
Driving home for Christmas

Top to toe in tailbacks
Oh, I got red lights all around
I'm driving home for Christmas
Get my feet on holy ground

So I sing for you though you can't hear me
When I get through and feel you near me
Driving in my car
Driving home for Christmas
Driving home for Christmas
With a thousand memories

I take look at the driver next to me
He's just the same
He’s driving home, driving home
Driving home for Christmas
He’s driving, driving, driving home
Track Name: Christmas Song (I'm Not Dreaming of a White Christmas)
I'm not dreaming of a white Christmas
I'm not dreaming of a white Christmas
All I'm dreaming of the whole day long
Is a peaceful world

Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year
To those of you who live in fear
And let us hope that very soon
The peace you seek will then resume

I'm not dreaming of a white Christmas
I'm not dreaming of a white Christmas
All I'm dreaming of the whole day long
Is a peaceful world

(I'm not dreaming of a white Christmas
I'm not dreaming of a white Christmas
All I'm dreaming of the whole day long
Is a peaceful world) 

A Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year
To those of you who live in fear
And let us hope that very soon
The peace you seek will then resume

I'm not dreaming of a white Christmas
I'm not dreaming of a white Christmas
All I'm dreaming of the whole day long
Is a peaceful, peaceful world
Is a peaceful world
Track Name: I'll Be Home for Christmas
I'm dreaming tonight of a place I love
Even more than I usually do
And although I know it's a long road back
I promise this to you

I'll be home for Christmas
You can plan on me
Please have snow and mistletoe
And presents by the tree

Christmas eve will find me
Where the love light gleams
I'll be home for Christmas
If only in my dreams

Christmas eve will find me
Where the love light gleams
I'll be home for Christmas
If only in my dreams
If only in my dreams
Track Name: Snowy Christmas (Medley)
Oh the weather outside is frightful
But the fire is so delightful
And since we've no place to go
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow

It doesn't show signs of stoppin'
And I've brought some corn for poppin'
The lights are turned way down low
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow

When we finally kiss goodnight
How I'll hate going out in the storm
But if you'll really hold me tight
All the way home I'll be warm…

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas
Everywhere you go
Take a look at the five and ten
It’s glistening once again 
With candy canes and silver lanes aglow 

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas
Toys in every store
But the prettiest sight to see
is the holly that will be 
On your own front door…

Sleigh bells ring, are you listening?
In the lane, snow is glistening
A beautiful sight
We're happy tonight
Walking in a winter wonderland

Gone away is the bluebird
Here to stay is a new bird
He sings a love song
As we go along
Walking in a winter wonderland

In the meadow we can build a snowman
Then pretend that he is Parson Brown
He'll say, “Are you married?” We'll say, “No man”
But you can do the job when you're in town…

And the fire is slowly dyin'
And my dear, we're still goodbyin'
But as long as you love me so
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow
Track Name: A Christmas for the Family
Christmas comes but once a year
Been waiting now the time is near
Everyone from far and wide
Will come and celebrate this night

When the fireplace is crackling
And the snow is on the ground
We begin to see the joy and smiles
Of our loved ones all around

I can hear the sleigh bells ringing
In the distance loud and clear
There’s a sound like angels singing
Santa must be very near

What a jolly holiday
We fill our hearts and say
It’s Christmas for the family
All we need is you and me
To sing around the tree
It’s the best night of the year

It’s Christmas for the ages
Come to celebrate this night
We are joined by friends and family
In the glow of candle light

What a jolly holiday
We fill our hearts and say
It’s Christmas for the family
All we need is you and me
To sing around the tree
It’s the best night of the year

The sound of laughter in the air
The Christmas tree with gifts to spare
The starry lights that twinkle in our eyes
With generations old and young
The children playing, having fun
The greatest gift is being here as one

What a jolly holiday
We fill our hearts and say
It’s Christmas for the family
All we need is you and me
To sing around the tree
It’s the best night of the year (Repeat)

Is everyone awake
Is everyone awake
Is everyone awake it’s Christmas
Is everyone awake
Is everyone awake
Is everyone awake it’s Christmas (Repeat)
Track Name: Silently Falls the Snow
Silently falls the snow
With fires in homes all aglow
Warming our hearts with good cheer
Rejoice for the Christ child is near

Gone are worries and pain
Our sorrows all fading away
With never a reason to fear
Rejoice for the Christ child is near

Angels are singing above
With sounds of a heavenly love
Soon holy night will be here
Rejoice for the Christ child is near

Angels are singing above
With sounds of a heavenly love
Warming our hearts with good cheer
Rejoice for the Christ child is near

With never a reason to fear
Rejoice for the Christ child is here
Track Name: O Tannenbaum
O Tannenbaum, O Tannenbaum
Wie treu sind deine Blätter
O Tannenbaum, O Tannenbaum
Wie treu sind deine Blätter
Du grünst nicht nur zur Sommerzeit
Nein, auch im Winter, wenn es schneit
O Tannenbaum, o Tannenbaum
Wie treu sind deine Blätter

O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree
Thy leaves are so unchanging
O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree
Thy leaves are so unchanging
Not only green when summer's here
But also when it’s cold and drear
O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree
Thy leaves are so unchanging

O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree
Such pleasure do you bring me
O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree
Such pleasure do you bring me
Each shining light, each silver bell
No other light spreads cheer so well
O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree
Such pleasure do you bring me
Such pleasure do you bring me
Track Name: Still Still Still
Still, still, still
One can hear the falling snow
For all is hushed
The world is sleeping
Holy Star its vigil keeping
Still, still, still
One can hear the falling snow

Sleep, sleep, sleep
'Tis the eve of our Saviour's birth
The night is peaceful all around you
Close your eyes
Let sleep surround you
Sleep, sleep, sleep 
'Tis the eve of our Saviour's birth

Dream, dream, dream
Of the joyous day to come
While guardian angels without number
Watch you as you sweetly slumber
Dream, dream, dream
Of the joyous day to come
Dream, dream, dream
Of the joyous day to come
Track Name: Silent Night
Silent night, Holy night
All is calm, all is bright
Round yon Virgin Mother and Child
Holy Infant, so tender and mild
Sleep in heavenly peace
Sleep in heavenly peace

Silent night, Holy night
Shepherds quake at thy sight
Glories stream from Heaven afar
Heavenly Hosts sing Alleluia
Christ our Saviour is born
Christ the Saviour is born

Silent night, Holy night
Son of God, love’s pure light
Radiant beams from Thy Holy Face
With the dawn of redeeming grace
Jesus Lord at Thy Birth
Jesus Lord at Thy Birth

Silent night, Holy night
All is calm, all is bright
Round yon Virgin Mother and Child
Holy Infant, so tender and mild
Sleep in heavenly peace
Sleep in heavenly peace
Track Name: Around the Christmas Tree
Around and 'round the Christmas tree
You’re so beautiful, won’t you dance with me
Red and yellow, blue and green
What a beautiful Christmas tree

Outside the snow is crisp and white
Father Christmas is on his way
His sleigh is probably filled with things
For you - on Christmas Day

All the stars are shining bright
All glittering on this special night
The world is filled with colored light
From the beautiful Christmas tree

Come and dance with me

Outside the snow is crisp and white
Old Man Christmas is on his way
His sleigh is positively filled with things
For you and me - on Christmas Day

See the baubles shining bright
They’re all glittering on this special night
The world is filled with colored light
From the beautiful Christmas tree
What a beautiful Christmas tree

On this wonderful night
Won’t you dance with me?

On this beautiful night
A Merry Christmas
Track Name: White Christmas
I'm dreaming of a white Christmas
Just like the ones I used to know
Where the treetops 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 treetops 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

May your days be merry and bright
And may all your Christmases be white
Track Name: What Are You Doing New Year's Eve?
Maybe it's much too early in the game
Oh, but I thought I'd ask you just the same
What are you doing New Year's?
New Year's eve?

I Wonder whose arms will hold you good and tight
When it's exactly twelve o'clock that night
Welcoming in the New Year
New Year's eve

Maybe I'm crazy to suppose
I'd ever be the one you chose
Out of a thousand invitations
You received

Oh, but in case I stand one little chance
Here comes the jackpot question in advance
What are you doing New Year's?
New Year's Eve?

Maybe I'm crazy to suppose
I'd ever be the one you chose
Out of a thousand invitations
You received

Oh, but in case I stand one little chance
Here comes the jackpot question in advance
What are you doing New Year's?
New Year's Eve?
What are you doing New Year's Eve?
Track Name: Leise rieselt der Schnee
Leise rieselt der Schnee
Still und starr liegt der See
Weihnachtlich glänzet der Wald
Freue Dich, Christkind kommt bald

In den Herzen ist’s warm
Still schweigt Kummer und Harm
Sorge des Lebens verhallt
Freue Dich, Christkind kommt bald

Bald ist heilige Nacht
Chor der Engel erwacht
Horch’ nur, wie lieblich es schallt
Freue Dich, Christkind kommt bald

Bald ist heilige Nacht
Chor der Engel erwacht
Horch’ nur, wie lieblich es schallt
Freue Dich, Christkind kommt bald

Horch’ nur, wie lieblich es schallt
Freue Dich, Christkind kommt bald
