Want the lyrics to our Festive Songs? 

Sleeps Till Santa is back for another Christmas, and Santa has asked Mark on Breakfast to help get the you ready for another festive season, and you can join the fun!

We need everyone to join in each morning to count down the days until the big man himself turns up on his sleigh to deliver the presents.

The countdown is on every weekday morning at around 8;15, so don’t be late! And remember Dominick the Donkey will be back as well just after Sleeps for another sing along each day!

 

LYRICS

SLEEPS 'TILL SANTA

x more sleeps to go,
x more sleeps 'til Santa,
x more sleeps 'til the big fat fella
comes down your chimney
and brings you presents
and drinks your beer,
x more sleeps 'til Santa

x more sleeps to go,
x more sleeps 'til Santa,
x more sleeps 'til the big fat fella
comes down your chimney
and brings you presents
and drinks your beer,
x more sleeps 'til Santa

x more sleeps to go,
x more sleeps 'til Santa,
x more sleeps 'til the big fat fella
comes down your chimney
and brings you presents
and drinks your beer,
x more sleeps 'til Santa

 

DOMINICK THE DONKEY

Hey, chingedy ching, hee haw, hee haw
It's Dominick, the donkey
Chingedy ching, hee haw, hee haw
The Italian Christmas donkey
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, ladioda

Santa's got a little friend, his name is Dominick
The cutest little donkey, you never see him kick
When Santa visits his Paesans with Dominick he'll be
Because the reindeer cannot climb the hills of Italy

Hey, chingedy ching, hee haw, hee haw
It's Dominick, the donkey
Chingedy ching, hee haw, hee haw
The Italian Christmas donkey
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, ladioda

Jingle bells around his feet and presents on the sled
Hey, look at the mayor's derby on top of Dominick's head
A pair of shoes for Louie and a dress for Josephine
The label on the inside says they're made in Brooklyn

Hey, Chingedy ching, hee haw, hee haw
It's Dominick, the donkey
Chingedy ching, hee haw, hee haw
The Italian Christmas donkey
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, ladioda

Children sing and clap their hands and Dominick starts ta dance
They talk Italian to him and he even understands
Cummares' and Cumpare's do the dance a tarentell
When Santa Nicola comes to town and brings il ciucciariello

Hey, chingedy ching, hee haw, hee haw
It's Dominick, the donkey
Chingedy ching, hee haw, hee haw
The Italian Christmas donkey
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, ladioda

Hey Dominick, Bouna Natale
Hee haw, hee haw, hee haw, hee haw, hee haw

ABOUT MARK AND THE SHOW...

Mark has been waking up Hinckley and Nuneaton since 2009 and nominated for an Arqiva Commercial Radio Award back in 2015. 

November 2018 saw Mark celebrate 20 years of professional broadcasting after he started back on 107.9 across Hinckley and Nuneaton in 1998. 

He's lived and worked in the Fosse 107 area all his life so knows the are very well and says he has no plans to move having just renovated his house in Elmesthorpe.

The one thing Mark loves though is interaction with you, so during his Breakfast Show there are plenty of opportunities to do just that.

You can email him at studio@fosse107.co.uk during the show or after 10:00 using markrowley@fosse107.co.uk. Or call the studio on 01455 700 107 or 01509 350 107

Regular features on the show include The Early Bird Quiz from 6:20 with a mention on the show if you have a go.

The Survey of the Day from 7:30, he's still trying to work out just who the people are that they survey as your answers rarely match what he has seen.

There's also the Birthday Song and mentions, so let him know your's or a friend or relatives, make sure they listen around 8:15.

And then 1 hour of hits from just a single year with clues from the news with The Test of Time, it could be any year between 1978 and 2008, but will you get the bell or buzzer, let him know your guess and listen to find out which awaits you, from 9 - 10:00.
