Santa saw your facebook page and to make your christmas merry

He’s bringing you some brand new clothes and great big dictionary

Christmas is a race to see which gives out first

Your money or your feet I don’t know which one is worse



I hate company christmas parties and this I have to say

It burns me up when I have to look for a job the very next day

Granma bought some batteries and attached them to a note

Toys are not included and that is all she wrote




If the relatives start to fight like they have in the past

Put some mistletoe in your back pocket so that they can kiss your A**

I guess it’s time to celebrate so pass the christmas cheer

If the dog don’t bite Santa we’ll have a happy holiday this year




lights are on the front porch but no snow is on the ground

Cause it’s eighty degrees and the wreath you bought is turning kind of brown

Frosty the snowman ain’t gonna melt cause he’s made from styrofoam

Christmas makes me homesick even though I’m home

Nice job on the words.

That was a fun song to listen to,

Tom,

Super. A solid write through and through. A really strong lyric - you should post them along with this - always nice to be able to read a lyric - especially one this good.

A solid mix as well. It all fit together perfectly. Good vocal to go along with it all...

I enjoyed this immensely.

Happy Holiday to you!

floyd

Well done.

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Herb, Bob,and Rich, Thanks for listening and commenting.

Floyd and Dani, Glad you enjoyed this one. Thanks for the kind words.

Josie, My son said what's with the whistle, who do you think you are Andy Griffith? I guess the younger generation can't identify part of the melody from Jingle Bells. Thanks for the comments. Glad I got an LOL.

Danny, David and George, Thanks for taking the time to listen and comment.

Again, To all my forum friends, Happy Holidays!

Super cool and very clever. Nothing to apologize for re the slide show -- it works perfectly. Please do add the lyric. Gonna share this one with the family for sure. Oh, and as always, the vocal and mix are top notch.
