Hi hi everybody!!! It’s your resident Hamilton addict Alexander Flamilton (Flamepaw) back again with another article! This time, I’ll be matching up Christmas songs and Warriors characters/scenes/relationships/etc., and I’m really excited because Christmas is my very favorite time of the year! (And I’m hoping this comes out in December-ish–I’m writing this in early October! 😀) After all, Buddy the elf did once say that “Christmas is the greatest day in the whole wide world”, and I can’t say he’s wrong! 😉

First of all, I’ll start with Last Christmas, which is one of my favorite Christmas songs!
Personally, I feel like this song fits Ashfur and Squilf really well ( last Christmas, I gave you my heart, but the very next day, you gave it away )! Ashfur is saying how his lover “gave away his heart”, which makes a lot of sense, seeing as Ashfur never took another romantic partner (unless you ship Ash x Hawk) and he resorted to villainy in both trapping and threatening his ex and her “kits” in a fire and later possessing his said ex’s husband from the grave which is obviously lovely stuff haha :DD
So here’s my revised lyrics (it’s almost exactly the same if not the exact same):

[Ashfur]: Last leaf-bare, I gave you my heart,
But the very next day, you gave it away.
This year, to save me from tears,
I’ll give it to someone special.

Last leaf-bare, I gave you my heart,
But the very next day, you gave it away.
This year, to save me from tears,
I’ll give it to someone special…

Battle-scarred, never shy,
I keep my distance, but you still catch my eye.
Tell me, baby, do you recognize me?
Well, it’s been so long, it wouldn’t surprise me.

“Happy leaf-bare”, I wrapped it up and sent it,
With a note that said, “I love you,” I meant it!
Now I know what a fool I’ve been,
But if you smiled at me now, I know you’d fool me again…

Last leaf-bare, I gave you my heart,
But the very next day, you gave it away.
This year, to save me from tears,
I’ll give it to someone special…

Last leaf-bare, I gave you my heart,
But the very next day, you gave it away.
This year, to save me from tears,
I’ll give it to someone special…

Oooh…
Oh, oh, baby…

[Squirrelflight]: Crowded island, Clans with tired eyes.
I’m hiding from you, and your soul of ice,
StarClan, I thought you were someone to rely on!
Me, I guess I was a shoulder to cry on.

Face on a lover with a fire in is heart,
A tom undercover, but ‘cha tore me apart.
Ooh, oh now I’ve found a real love,
You’ll never fool me again…

[Ashfur]: Last leaf-bare, I gave you my heart,
But the very next day, you gave it away.
This year, to save me from tears,
I’ll give it to someone special…

Special…

[Ashfur and Squilf duet]: Face of a lover with a fire in his heart (I gave you mine…)
A tom undercover but you tore me apart…
Maybe next year, I’ll give it to someone,
I’ll give it to someone special…

Special.

What do you think? Personally, I like it, but I would’ve liked it if I had done any scenario because I love Christmas and Christmas music, haha. 😛

Next up is another one of my favorites that I feel isn’t as common, Cold December Night by Michael Bublé!

I feel like this would really suit Firestar singing to Sandstorm because it’s narrated by a guy asking his love to be with him, and I feel like that’s kind of how it went with Firey–Sandstorm liked him too but didn’t want to ask him because of Spotted so he asked her (Fire x Sand melts my heart ❤️).
Here’s the lyrics!

[Firestar]: The nests are made with care,
All the kits sleep with one eye open.
Well now there’s more than toys at stake,
‘Cause I’m older now, but not done hopin’.

The twinkling of the lights,
The sound of carols fill the Clan’s camp.
Old Saint Nick has taken flight,
With a heart on board, so please be careful.
Each year, I ask for many diff’rent things.
But now I know what my heart wants you to bring…

So please just fall in love with me,
This leaf-bare,
There’s nothing else that I will need,
This leaf-bare,
It won’t be wrapped under the tree,
I want something to last forever,
So kiss me on this cold leaf-bare night.

A cheer that smells of pine,
A camp that’s filled with joy and laughter.
The mistletoe stays “stand in line”,
Loneliness is what I’ve captured.
Oh, but this evening can be a holy night,
Let’s cozy on up by a fireplace
And dim those starry lights…

So please just fall in love with me,
This leaf-bare,
There won’t be else that you will need,
This leaf-bare,
It won’t be wrapped under a tree,
I want something to last forever…
So kiss me on this cold leaf-bare night.

They call it “The season of giving”,
I’m here, yours for the taking.
They call it “The season of giving”,
I’m here, I’m yours…

[Firestar and Sandstorm duet]: Just fall in love with me,
This leaf-bare,
There’s nothing else that we will need,
This leaf-bare,
It won’t be wrapped under a tree,
I want something to last forever (last forever)
So kiss me on this cold leaf-bare night, mm,

[Firestar]: They call it “The season of giving”,
I’m here, yours for the taking,
They call it “The season of giving”,
I’m here, I’m yours.

Aaaa that song just makes my heart so warm I love it so much!!! <3333

The next song I picked is Merry Xmas (War is Over) by John Lennon and Yoko Ono!
This song gives me post-Great Battle (OotS) vibes, and I feel like Ivypool would be the singer! I also feel like some of the lyrics also fit with her dealing with Dovewing leaving to go to ShadowClan with Tigerheart, too! I’ve always really liked this idea so I’m excited to see what happens haha! 😛

Le updated lyrics:

[Ivypool] So this is leaf-bare,
And what have you done?
Another year over,
And a new one just begun.
And so this is leaf-bare,
I hope you have fun.
The near and the dear ones,
The old and the young.

A very merry leaf-bare,
And a happy new year,
Let’s hope it’s a good one,
Without any fear.

[Ivypool and Clanmates]: And so this is leaf-bare (war is over)
For weak and for strong (if you want it)
For rich and for poor Clans (war is over)
The path is so long (now)
And so happy leaf-bare (war is over)
For Shadow and Thunder (if you want it)
For River and WindClan (war is over)
Let’s stop all the fight… (now)

A very merry leaf-bare,
And a happy new year…
Let’s hope it’s a good one,
Without any fear.

And so this is leaf-bare (war is over)
And what have we done? (if you want it)
Another year over (war is over)
And a new one just begun (now)
And so happy leaf-bare (war is over)
We hope you have fun… (if you want it)
The near and the dear one (war is over)
The old and the young (now)

[Ivypool]: A very merry leaf-bare,
And a happy new year.
Let’s hope it’s a good one,
Without any fear.

War is over, if you want it,
War is over
Now.

Happy leaf-bare!

I really like the sound of that! What do you guys think? 😀
The next song I picked is Santa Tell Me, and I personally quite like that song!
I feel like this song really fits Cinderpelt. She’s saying she wants to find a love who won’t move on within the next year and says that she’s avoiding all love until he says something to her, basically, and I feel like that “he” would be Firestar. (Shocker, I know 😛)
Here’s my revised lyrics:
[Cinderpelt]: StarClan, tell me, if you’re really there,
Don’t make me fall in love again if he won’t be here,
Next year.
StarClan, tell me, if he really cares,
‘Cause I can’t give it all away if he won’t be here,
Next year.

Feelin’ leaf-bare all around,
And I’m tryin’ to play it cool,
But it’s hard to focus when I see him walkin’ ‘cross the room.
“Let it Snow” is blasting out,
But I won’t get in the mood.
I’m avoiding every mistletoe until I know it’s
True love that he thinks of
So next leaf-bare,
I’m not all alone, boy…

StarClan, tell me, if you’re really there,
Don’t make me fall in love again if he won’t be here,
Next year.
StarClan, tell me, if he really cares,
‘Cause I can’t give it all away if he won’t be here,
Next year.

I’ve been down this road before,
Fell in love one leaf-bare night,
But on New Year’s Day I woke up and he wasn’t by my side.
Now I need someone to hold,
Be my fire in the cold,
But it’s hard to tell if this is just a fling.
Or it’s true love
That he thinks of,
So next leaf-bare,
I’m not all alone, babe…

StarClan, tell me, if you’re really there,
Don’t make me fall in love again if he won’t be here
Next year.
StarClan, tell me, if he really cares,
‘Cause I can’t give it all away if he won’t be here
Next year.

Oh, I wanna have him beside me like oh, oh, oh,
On the 25th by that fireplace, oh, oh, oh,
But I don’t want a new broken heart,
This year I’ve got to be smart,
Ooh, baby,
(StarClan, tell me, StarClan, tell me)
If he will be, if he will be here (StarClan, tell me, StarClan, tell me,)
Oh, oh, oh,

StarClan, tell me, if you’re really there (StarClan, tell me, ‘cause I really care)
Don’t make me fall in love again if he won’t be here
Next year,
StarClan, tell me, if he really cares (tell me, tell me, boy)
‘Cause I can’t give it all away if he won’t be here
Next year.

StarClan, tell me, if you’re really there (tell me, tell me, baby)
Don’t make me fall in love again if he won’t be here
Next year (if he won’t be, if he won’t be here…)
StarClan, tell me, if he really cares (tell me, do you care?)
‘Cause I can’t give it all away if he won’t be here
Next year.

I really like that! I think it sounds quite groovy, in my opinion. ✨ (😛)

Moving on to our next song, which is Mistletoe, by Justin Bieber!

The narrator is saying that he should be hanging out with his friends or partaking in normal holiday decorations, but he’d rather be spending time with the person he loves. Personally, I feel like this really suits Cloudtail, because instead of doing normal warrior duties, he tries helping Brightheart as much as possible.
Honestly, I don’t think the lyrics need to be tweaked at all, so I’m not going to post the lyrics, but I recommend you listen to the song because it’s a really beautiful song! ❤️

The second-to-last song I’m doing will make all you Swifties happy, it’s Christmas Tree Farm by none other than Taylor! *pauses as Silvie and Swifties cheer maniacally*
The narrator (Taylor) is saying she’s having a really busy and stressful life and that in her fantasy she’d be with the person she loves at a Christmas tree farm where everyone is carefree and happy. In a way, I feel like this really fits Ivypool as though she was singing to Bristlefrost! (“You would be there, too.”) I also feel like the first verses where she talks about being busy and her life filled with static really fits Ivypool because (spoilers for Thunder!!!) in the excerpt released for Thunder, Ivypool is named as ThunderClan’s new deputy so long as Squilf does get accepted as the new leader, and it’s common knowledge in the Warriors fandom that the job of a Clan’s deputy can be very stressful at times.

So here goes with the new lyrics!:

My leaf-bare nights are taken up by static
Stress and patrol-assigning traffic
But I close my eyes and I’m somewhere else
Just like magic…

In my heart is a Christmas tree farm,
Where the Clans would come
To dance under sparkling stars,
Bundled up, fluffing out their fur,
And the joy here would flow
And I just wanna be there tonight

Sweet dreams of Hollyleaf (😉) and ribbon,
Mistakes are forgiven,
And everything is icy and blue
And you would be there, too.

Under the mistletoe,
Watching the stars all glow
And telling me, “I love you,”
Just you being away from harm
Takes me back to that little farm
Where every wish comes true

In my heart is a Christmas tree farm,
There’s a light in the warm den,
We run inside out from the cold
In the Clan, kits are dreamin’ of sleighs,
And they’re warm and they’re safe
They wake to see a blanket of snow.

Sweet dreams of Hollyleaf and ribbon
Mistakes are forgiven
And everything is icy and blue…
And you would be there, too.

Under the mistletoe,
Watching the stars all glow
And telling me, “I love you,”
Just you being away from harm
Takes me back to that little farm
Where every wish comes true,
Baby, yeah,

And when I’m feeling alone,
You remind me of home,
Oh, baby, baby, happy leaf-bare,
And when the world isn’t fair,
I’d just pretend that we’re here
Baby, baby, happy leaf-bare
To you,

Under the mistletoe (to you)
Watching the stars all glow
And telling me, “I love you,”

Oh baby, baby, happy leaf-bare,
Oh baby, baby, happy leaf-bare (darling),
Oh baby, baby, happy leaf-bare
I love you.
Oh baby, baby, happy leaf-bare,
Oh baby, baby, happy leaf-bare (I just want you to know)
Oh baby, baby, happy leaf-bare
Where every wish comes true,
I love you.

Ugh this just melts my heart aboeneovheocndcvndeocvcmdc ❤️

The last song I’m going to do is I Don’t Know What Christmas Is, But Christmastime is Here, from the Guardians of the Galaxy Christmas Special! In my personal opinion, I love this song and I think it’s basically the most fabulous Christmas song ever written, but that’s just me probably. 😛
I honestly don’t think that any of the lyrics need to be changed, but I totally imagine this as Firestar explaining to ThunderClan about this mysterious holiday his Twolegs celebrated–and made him partake in as well, hehe. That honestly sounds beautiful. ✨

I guess I need to wrap up this article now, huh?
Well, I hope you liked it, and happy holidays to all of you!
