Christmas In Hollis


Christmas in Hollis - Run-DMC

It was December 24th on Hollis Ave at the dark

When I seen a man chilling with his dog at the park

I approached them very slowly with my heart full of fear

Looked at his dog oh my God a ill reindeer

But then I was illin' because the man had a beard

And a bag full of goodies 12 o'clock had neared

So I turned my head a second and the man was gone

But he left his drivers wallet smack dead on the lawn

I picket the wallet up and then I took a pause

Took out the license and it cold said Santa Claus


A million dollars in it cold hundreds of G's

Enough to buy a boat matching car with ease

But I'd never steal from Santa

'Cause that ain't right

So I was going home to mail

It back to him that night

But when I got home I bugged

'Cause under the tree

Was a letter from Santa and the dough is for me


It's Christmas time in Hollis Queens

Mom's cooking chicken and collard greens

Rice and stuffing macaroni and cheese

And Santa put gifts under Christmas trees

Decorate the house with lights at night

Snow's on the ground snow white so bright

In the fireplace is the yule log

Beneath the mistletoe as we drink egg nog

The rhymes you hear are the rhymes of Darryl's

But each and every year we bust Christmas carols


Rhymes so loud and prod you hear it

It's Christmas time and we got the spirit

Jack Frost chillin' the orchas out

And that's what Christmas is all about

The time is now the place is here

And the whole wide world is filled with cheer

My name's DMC with the mic in my hand

And I'm chilling and coolin' just like a snowman

So open your eyes

Lend us a ear we want to say

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year
