***********************************************

Here's the lyrics
Here I am sitting alone
Watching the world pass me by
But wait just one moment
What do I see coming across the sky

It's Rudolf with his red nose bright
What a wonderful sight
Shining the way for Santa Claus
He'll be here soon tonight


Santa Claus is coming you see
With lots of presents for you and for me
Under the Christmas tree he'll place some socks
But the best is Band In A Box

Instrumental

Santa Claus is coming you see
With lots of presents for you and for me
Under the Christmas tree he'll place some socks
But the best is Band In A Box

It's snowing outside on this cold Christmas night
But Santa is wrapped up just fine
He's had lots to eat everyone that he meets
Offers him a glass of mulled wine

Santa Claus is coming you see
With lots of presents for you and for me
Under the Christmas tree he'll place some socks
But the best is Band In A Box
But the best is Band In A Box

Let me know what you think

Best regards
Michee

Hey Michee - really good one. I'll let the better ears critique what they will.

I just like the song - got a chuckle or two - well done. It's hard to write a carefree feeling Christmas song and you've done it.
Thanks for including the lyric as always.
A+

Cheers - Ian

WOW this is great. I liked your vocals on this. The backing tracks were spot on. The Band-in-a-Box line was a spark of genius!

It nitpick I didn’t like the ending, but I know how hard they can be. I hope PGMusic come up with better RT endings soon.

A new Christmas Classic!

Hi Michee,

You made me smile. Maybe someone in your family will get the hint You're really getting exceptionally good at writing, performing and mixing songs; each one just seems to keep on getting better and better. Like Mario, I thought the instrumental was an excellent fit. This effort is a real credit to you.

Regards,
Noel
