RUN DMC Christmas in Hollis lyrics

Nothing says Christmas time like Run DMC's Christmas classic Rap track, Christmas In Hollis. The video itself is an Old school throwback rap classic complete with the gold chains, black hats and vintage ADIDAS that DMC brought to the game. And with a rowdy and fun rap track they still manage to deliver the themes of Christmas, chillin' in Hollis with mom for the holidays, while chasing no good elves out of the house with a broom and making sure you return Santa's wallet to him with cash in tact. Even back then Reverend Run was preaching peace and goodwill. The song appears on DMC's Greatest Hits, Very Special Christmas and the Tougher than Leather albums.

Instructions: Watch the Christmas in Hollis video below, download the MP3 here, and add the Christmas in Hollis ringtone to your cell phone.

Merry Christmas to all and a Happy New Year!

Here's the Run DMC Christmas in Hollis lyrics:

It was December 24th on Hollis Ave in the dark
When I seen a man chillin' with his dog in the park
I approached very slowly with my heart full of fear
Looked at his dog, oh my God, a ill reindeer!
But then I was illin' cause 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 driver's wallet smack dead on the lawn
I picked the wallet up 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 and 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 was for me!

D.M.C. :
It's Christmas time in Hollis, Queens
Mom's cookin' 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 that you hear are the rhymes of Darryl's
But each and every year we bust Christmas carols

(Christmas melodies)Interlude:

Isn't that the man from last night? Santa Macys?
Yo man lets go eat man, I'm starved...
haha Yo!

Run-D.M.C. :
Rhymes so loud and proud 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 D-M-C with the mic in my hand
And I'm chillin' and coolin' just like a snowman
So open your eyes, lend us a ear
We want to say:

"Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!" (ALL)
