    MOVIE LYRICS - Nightmare Before Christmas - Opening

    Notes: This is a fantastic character read from the movie. Patrick Stewart did the original introduction, but now his version can only be heard on the movie soundtrack CD. Both versions are available on YouTube if you look for them.

    Trying to emulate Stewart's version is a great way to practice emotion, timbre, high and low pitches and everything in between. Enjoy!



    ‘Twas a long time ago,
    Longer now than it seems
    in a place that perhaps
    you've seen in your dreams
    For the story that you are about to be told
    began with the holiday worlds of old

    Now, you've probably wondered
    where holidays come from.
    If you haven't I'd say
    it's time you begun.
    For the holidays are the result of much fuss
    and hard work for the worlds that create them for us

    Well you see now, quite simply
    that's all that they do,
    making one unique holiday
    especially for you

    But once, a calamity ever so great
    occurred when two holidays ... met by mistake
