Christmas In July 2009-Day The Eighth

Entering the second week of Christmas In July fun, and I'm bending the rules a little bit. All of the tracks today are from the same artist and the same album, but it's not the whole album. Back during the 1982-83 school year, the Lockhart Cougar Chorus recorded an album, and tonight you're getting most of the tracks from side two. I'm not normally a big fan of little kids singing, much less random schoolkids, but the songs on here are not bad, and some of them are quite unique. I'm sure you'll enjoy it as much as I did. This was a private pressing, no label info on the record or the sleeve, just a cougar and name on the front cover. Oh, there was a mimeographed list inside showing the names of all the kids in the chorus, as well as the principal and the director. The track titles are as follows:

Twelve Days After Christmas (This is great, if a bit disturbing)
White Christmas (Sorry, no smart comment for this one)
As Long As He Needs Me (Is this even a Christmas song?)
Will The Real Santa Please Stand Up (Eminem was around in 1982?)
Griselda (Another of Santa's unknown reindeer!)
Ding Dong Merrily On High (Some of those Gloria's go on for way too long...)
Christmas Is For Kids (Yes, yes it is)

Trust me, you're gonna love this one. Here's the download link, go get it.

No idea where this Lockhart school is. There's a Lockhart Elementary near here in Tampa, but it's tough to tell. There are probably dozens of them around the country.
