Nat King Cole was so smooth that his songs could elegantly slide away from a listener, like a figure skater heading for the far end of the pond.

Jones' unmistakable organ licks, which bring a dash of soul to the country Christmas vibe. Willie's jazz-informed phrasing makes even "Jingle Bells" sound new, and the self-penned title track stands right up alongside the album's other yuletide standards. Pretty Paper Willie Nelson.

Pretty paper, pretty ribbons of blue Wrap your presents to your darling from you Pretty pencils to write "I love you" Pretty paper, pretty ribbons of blue.

Should you stop?, better not, much too busy You're in a hurry, my how time does fly In the distance the ringing of laughter And in the midst of the laughter he cries. 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.
