I didn't think I would have time to record and post another song this year, but after my wife got back from a vacation with our daughter I got inspired. So here it is - another Christmas song (Hang in there B.D. I know they annoy you, but just another couple of days and we'll be through the season - and at least there's no banjo in this one!) When I was a kid Pure Prairie League put out a couple of albums that I loved (Two Lane Highway & Taking the Stage.) I know it is dated, but I was shooting for that kind of a feel with this one. I'm certainly open to all ideas, critiques and comments, should you choose to give it a listen. Merry Christmas everyone.

https://soundcloud.com/user-722422510/mrs-santa-claus

When I was just a kid, like every kid around,
I couldn’t wait for Christmas when Santa came to town.
‘Cause there’d be something special on my Christmas list
Then early Christmas morning I’d find out what I’d get.
Now I may have grown. I may have changed a bit,
but there’s still something special on my Christmas list.
Now some may think it’s strange, but it’s really just because
all I want for Christmas is Mrs. Santa Claus.
All I want for Christmas is Mrs. Santa Claus.

‘Cause she’s got spiked heel boots and a red hat made of felt,
a tiny Christmas suit that makes the snow melt.
Then steam comes from the water, it beats all you ever saw.
They don’t come any hotter than Mrs. Santa Claus
when she pulls up in her sleigh, says “What’s your Christmas wish?”,
but I know if I say I’ll be on that naughty list.
So is it really strange, can it really be so wrong
For me to be in love with Mrs. Santa Claus?
For me to be in love with Mrs. Santa Claus?

Oh, Mrs. Santa Claus, she’s got me in her spell.
Gets me thinking crazy thoughts that ring my jingle bells.
She really turns me on, I don’t want nothin’ else.
She’s so smoking hot. She’s everything I want.
My only Christmas wish is for my pretty misses,
Mrs. Santa Claus. Mrs. Santa Claus.

Oh, Mrs. Santa Claus, she’s got me in her spell.
Gets me thinking crazy thoughts that ring my jingle bells.
She really turns me on, I don’t want nothin’ else.
She’s so smoking hot. She’s everything I want.
My only Christmas wish is for my pretty misses,
my Mrs. Santa Claus, she’s got me in her spell.
Gets me thinking crazy thoughts that ring my jingle bells.
She really turns me on, I don’t want nothin’ else.
She’s so smoking hot. She’s everything I want.
My only Christmas wish is for my pretty misses, my Mrs. Santa Claus.
Yeah, my only Christmas wish is for my pretty misses,
Mrs. Santa Claus. Mrs. Santa Claus.
My Misses, whoa my Mrs. Santa Claus.

So your wife has come back and inspired you to have fantasies about Mrs. Claus in boots with spiked heels ... ahem ... wink

I like your song and especially the lyrics. In my opinion, it's not a Christmas song at all (with jingle bells and all that), but a song about Christmas. I don't have a problem with that.
Oh, and thanks for not using a banjo grin

Ha! Great lyrics. I was smiling the whole time.

I love the band, although I don't mind a banjo at all.

I was going to say it's cool to get such inspiration from your family, Brad, but BD makes a good point. Love this song!! My kind of Christmas song.


Enjoy whatever happens!

Thanks for the listen all, I'm glad it brought a smile. Around my house, I'm Santa Claus, so I'm okay with this kind of inspiration coming from "my" Mrs. Santa Claus! Hope everyone had a great Christmas and I'm looking forward to another year of great music coming from you in this coming year!

Hi, Brad.

Ha! I guess there's another reason the polar ice cap is melting! wink

Fun song.

BTW, you might want to fix the URL - the last bit is left off, so you have to select the song once you get to your SoundCloud page.

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

WOW what a fantastic song!

I'm sure that you wife loved this one!

Super groove with a spot on vocal.

Loved the lyrics.

PS - I'm in the 4th stage of Santa Claus:
1-you believe in Santa Claus
2-you don't believe in Santa Claus
3-you are Santa Claus
4-you look like Santa Claus


I just posted a selfie and all of the responses were get well soon!

Great song with some clever lines, I enjoyed it! I recall PPL well, I met Craig Fuller back when I was a record store manager in the seventies. Amie was their big song back then.

Hey there David, hope you had a great Christmas - and thanks for the heads up. I'll see if I can fix that when I get the time.

Thanks for giving it a listen Peter.

Howdy Mario, I'm getting there too! No beard, but plenty of gray hair (all except for where there's no hair at all!)

Hope you had a great Christmas with the family Dan. Thanks for listening - and I'll keep my head low for a while!

TM, I'll be that was fun. I think I ran a needle through Taking the Stage, and I wore out the tape on Two-Lane highway! Oh, the days of vinyl and tapes ...

Haha! Witty lyric and a good band to go with your happy vocal.

Pure Prairie League was a band we listened to some also.

We hope you and Mrs. Claus had a Merry Christmas!

The Band-in-a-Box® Flash Drive Backup Option

Today (April 5) is National Flash Drive Day!

Did you know... not only can you download your Band-in-a-Box® Pro, MegaPAK, or PlusPAK purchase - you can also choose to add a flash drive backup copy with the installation files for only $15? It even comes with a Band-in-a-Box® keychain!

For the larger Band-in-a-Box® packages (UltraPAK, UltraPAK+, Audiophile Edition), the hard drive backup copy is available for only $25. This will include a preinstalled and ready to use program, along with your installation files.

Backup copies are offered during the checkout process on our website.

Already purchased your e-delivery version, and now you wish you had a backup copy? It's not too late! If your purchase was for the current version of Band-in-a-Box®, you can still reach out to our team directly to place your backup copy order!

Note: the Band-in-a-Box® keychain is only included with flash drive backup copies, and cannot be purchased separately.

Handy flash drive tip: Always try plugging in a USB device the wrong way first? If your flash drive (or other USB plug) doesn't have a symbol to indicate which way is up, look for the side with a seam on the metal connector (it only has a line across one side) - that's the side that either faces down or to the left, depending on your port placement.
