Ships In The Harbor Oh oh, glory hallelujah Oh yes, pretty little baby Glory to the newborn king Some will call him Jesus but I'll call him Saviour Oh oh, glory hallelujah Oh yes, pretty little baby Glory to the newborn king Out of the east there came three wise men Oh oh, glory hallelujah Oh yes, pretty little baby Glory to the newborn king Virgin Mary had one son Oh oh, glory hallelujah Oh yes, pretty little baby Glory to the newborn king God rest ye merry, gentlemen Let nothing you dismay Remember, Christ, our Saviour Was born on Christmas day To save us all from Satan's power When we were gone astray O tidings of comfort and joy, Comfort and joy O tidings of comfort and joy From God our Heavenly Father A blessed Angel came; And unto certain Shepherds Brought tidings of the same: How that in Bethlehem was born The Son of God by Name.
O tidings of comfort and joy, Comfort and joy O tidings of comfort and joy Now to the Lord sing praises, All you within this place, And with true love and brotherhood Each other now embrace; This holy tide of Christmas All other doth deface.
O tidings of comfort and joy, Comfort and joy O tidings of comfort and joy. It's Christmas I Saw Three Ships I saw three ships come sailing in On Christmas Day in the morning.
And what was in those ships all three On Christmas Day in the morning? Tin Star Silent Night Holy infant so tender and mild, Sleep in heavenly peace. Sleep in heavenly peace. Silent night, holy night, Shepherds quake at the sight, Glories stream from heaven afar, Heavenly hosts sing alleluia; Christ the Savior is born!
Christ the Savior 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. True Believers Come All Ye Faithful Sing, choirs of angels, sing in exultation; Sing, all ye citizens of heaven above! Yea, Lord, we greet Thee, born this happy morning; Jesus, to Thee be glory given; Word of the Father, now in flesh appearing. She was one of only three solo women  who performed at the Woodstock Festival in and the inspiration for her first hit song, " Lay Down Candles in the Rain ", apparently arose from the Woodstock audience lighting candles during her set although most of the "candles" were actually matches or lighters.
The B-side of the single featured Melanie's spoken-word track "Candles in the Rain". InMelanie was the only artist to ignore the court injunction banning the Powder Ridge Rock Festival scheduled to be held on July 31, August 1 and August 2, Shortly following this performance, she played at the Strawberry Fields Festival held from August 7 to 9,at Mosport ParkOntario. She was also the artist who sang to herald in the summer solstice at Glastonbury Fayre later the Glastonbury Festival in England, in June She performed again at Glastonbury inthe 40th anniversary of the original festival.
Melanie left Buddah Records when they insisted that she produce albums on demand. Inshe formed her own label, Neighborhood Recordswith Peter Schekeryk, who was also her producer and husband. When first released, Merry Christmas - Melanie (2) - Peace Will Come (Cassette) New Key" was banned by some radio stations because some heard sexual innuendo in the lyrics.
Melanie has acknowledged the possibility of reading an unintended sexual innuendo in the song, stating, "I wrote [ Brand New Key ] in about fifteen minutes one night. I thought it was cute; a kind of old thirties tune. I guess a key and a lock have always been Freudian symbols, and pretty obvious ones at that. There was no deep serious expression behind the song, but people read things into it.
They made up incredible stories as to what the lyrics said and what the song meant. In some places, it was even banned from the radio [ Of course I can see it symbolically with the key, but I just thought of roller skating.
Merry Christmas - Melanie (2) - Peace Will Come (Cassette) was fasting with a twenty seven day fast on water. I broke the fast and went back to my life living in New Jersey and we were going to a flea market around six in the morning. On the way back So we pulled into the McDonalds and I got the whole works The aroma brought back memories of roller skating and learning to ride a bike and the vision of my dad holding the back fender of the tire.
And me saying to my dad Then I'd look back and he wasn't holding and I'd fall. So that whole thing came back to me and came out in this song. So it was not a deliberate or intentional sexual innuendo. To compete with this release, Melanie's former record company released "The Nickel Song", which she had recorded while still signed to Buddah Records.
Both songs were simultaneous top hits while "Brand New Key" was still on the charts — setting a record for the first female performer to have three top hits concurrently.

When she became an official UNICEF ambassador inshe agreed to forego a world tour in favor of raising money for the organization. Melanie had another top hit single in with "Bitter Bad", a song that marked a slight departure from the hippie sentiments of earlier hits with lyrics such as "If you do me wrong I'll put your first and last name in my rock n' roll song".
InMelanie started to retreat from the spotlight to begin a family. The album was praised by The New York Times as one of the year's best, although it was largely ignored by the public. InMelanie wrote the music and lyrics for a theatrical musicalAce of Diamondswith a book by Ed Kelleher and Seymour Vall, based on a series of letters written by Annie Oakley.

After a series of disagreements, the relationship between the artist and the label was severed. Her sold-out performance received critical acclaim, with The Independent saying, "it was hard to disagree that Melanie has earned her place alongside Joan Baez, Judy Collins, Joni Mitchell and Marianne Faithfull in the pantheon of iconic female singers.
Meltdown was all the better for her presence. She recorded "Psychotherapy", sung to the tune of the " Battle Hymn of the Republic ", which parodies aspects of Freudian psychoanalysis.
