A song about rediscovering the true spirit of Christmas through the eyes of my daughter late on Christmas eve.
I’m suffering from the traditional December headcold right now, so excuse the odd splutter..but its the most heartfelt and true thing I’ve posted here so far.
I’d love any musos, remixers, singers or jaded/faded Xmas lovers to do what they will with either the melody, lyrics or pell.
My quick remix is here .

The pell is as dry as I wish my nose was right now.

Here’s the lyrics;

It came upon a midnight clear
as I sat real quiet
drinking Santas beer
cause I’m not as bright this time of year
now I am growing older
by the year

umm
um ummm

Well the ribbons all wrapped around that tree
but as I grew taller
it was not for me
I once believed in Santa Claus
and lookn for the prints
of the reindeer paws

But Oh
its a silent night
but not feel’n right…
ho ho…

I’d turned myself into some kind of grinch
no nutmeg in my eggnog
not a pinch
As the years rolled by
it ‘came such a cinch
as the Chistmas tree
shrunk inch by inch.

But no!
now the cold wind blows
ho ho…
(hope that no one knows)

But then I think about
my friend next door
and his pretty little girl
whose turn’n four
rememebering how
it was before
when I used to nail the mistletoe above your door

But oh
I’ve been hardened so…
Oh no!
it begins to snow!

And then hear the bells and the carols clear
from that little Christmas angel in my ear;
I stand right up
I shed a tear
cause theres no use feeling grumpy this time of year
Its a sign!
now I’m feeling fine
for some family time
plugging Santas line…

Cause Christmas trees aint getting shorter
just a little more magic
just ask my daughter
As I look right down to the things I bought her
the thaw is coming early
and I think it oughta
Ummm…
Um Ummm

(Go to bed sweetheart!
Santas nearly here
can’t you hear the bells?)

Cause Christmas trees aint getting shorter
just a little more magic
just ask my daughter
the thaw is here
and I thing it oughta
As I look right down to the things I bought her

Oh..
Its a quieter time
now I’m feeling fine!
Ho Ho!

Now hark those heralds
angels sing
now I’m march’n to the beat of a brand new thing
the joy and laughter it can bring
since I’ve listened to those Christmas bells to ring!
ah ha
ho ho
I can hear them now!
Oh lord
I can feel their power!
Oh God

Cause Christmas trees aint getting shorter
just a little more magic
just ask your daughter
As you look right down to the things you bought her
the thaw is coming early
bet I’m glad you taught her
Oh
ho ho
kids tucked up in bed
(I hope?)
guess its time for me
to bed
I go…
ho ho
ho ho
ho ho….
