Description
I know it's a bit early yet for Christmas songs, but I want to get another song posted for New Year, so thought I'd better get a move on. If you don't have a sense of humour don't listen to this one, but if you do, then you will have a smile on your face by the end of the song.... as was the case with my first Chjristmas song I ended up laughing at my own near mistakes as i sang, but It's nice to end with a good laugh.... just hope it's infectious.
These are my two previous Christmas songs for 20007 and 2008.
Christmas, Christmas
It’s Christmas

Lyrics
The Merriest Christmas
1.
Soon be Christmas, so you’ll know, where this song is gonna’ go,
With tinsel, cards and decorations too,
And I hope you’ll sing along with this ‘Merry Christmas’ song,
Bringing happiness to anyone who’se blue.
2
Every Christmas as you know, people hope there will be snow,
Making everywhere we look a wonderland,
Christmas trees and mistletoe, even shops put on a show,
Everybody’s filled with Christmas cheer.
3.
It’s been building up for weeks, every word the children speak,
Is of Christmas and what Christmas day will bring,
To ensure some wanted gifts, they must give their Mom a lift,
Do some chores and learn some carols they can sing.
Chorus…………………………………………………
People carol singing, fairy lights are swingin’ on the trees and round the window panes,
People drinking sherry, clinking glasses, making merry,
You can hear the Church bells ringing down the lane.
4……………………………………………………………..
When the day has fina’ly come and the bustle’s been and gone,
The dinner cooked and everything’s been ate,
All the crackers have been pulled and the wine so finely Mulled,
All agree it’s been the Merriest Christmas yet.
.5.
Now the party has begun, from far and wide the family’s come,
All determined that they’re gonna’ have a ball.
Uncle Frank, thick as a plank, brought a Stink-bomb, Boy! It stank,
People scattered when he threw it down the hall.
Repeat Chorus
6.
Cousin Clare sure has a flair for tripping on the stair,
So the guys will all come rushing to her aid,
Last year it all went wrong, she fell and hit the Dinner Gong,
Thinking dinner’s served, they ran the other way.
Repeat Chorus.
7.
When Grandma came to call, she waved to one and all,
As she poured herself the biggest glass of Gin
No one could believe their ears when she told ‘em “ Since last year,
I’ve had my teeth out and a new Fireplace put in”.
Repeat Chorus
All the crackers have been pulled, and the wine so finely mulled,
Yes, I’m sure we’ll have the Merriest Christmas yet.
Maurice Vizard

Re Hi Dave
It's Andy, actually--but no worries. I know it can be hard keeping everyone's name straight around here--and I didn't help matters by having a nickname that doesn't relate in any way to my actual name.:)

Oh, man...
You gotta find a Christmas TV special to attach this wonderful song to. This is just amazing, Maurice: great lyrics, a really fun tune, and your inimitable vocalization including little sound effects now and again. You did it all. Wow. The "B" section really works, too, Such a perfect realization of orchestration throughout. You out-did yourself on this one. Just pleasant, pleasant, pleasant. Thanks for such a perfect song for the season.
Peace ... on the earth,
Paul

I'm really glad you enjoyed this so much... I've had it finished for a couple of weeks now and couldn't wait to post (though it's earlier than I'd intended).... it's a bit like a Pantomime in song isn't it.... and I'll bet you just can't wait to work with that Bell-Ringer LOL, All the Best Paul, regards M

This is great, Maurice. Lovely melody. Great harmony part. Fantastic lyric! Has a little bit of an English Music Hall fee-which I love. Has the feel of a classic. A very warm, funny, entertaining tune.

Christmas *Spirits*
An offbeat and delightful take on a Christmas song, Maurice. I do believe it's the first I've ever heard that references a stink bomb. LOL!

Lots of Christmas *spirits* in here, between the sherry, the wine and the gin which seems to fit some of the colorful episodes revealed in the lyric.

Nicely done, Maurice.

A very Merry Christmas to you. ;)

As regards all the booze I hadn't thought about there being three drinks mentioned.... as a non drinker, what does that say I wonder?LOL. Thanks a lot Joe; very pleased you called to listen, regards and best wishes, M

Well, Maurice
You certainly paint the fun word pictures with effects. This was funny! When I was little my parents had some crazy parties... This song reminded me of my aunt hanging upside down from the monkey bars, another aunt crying in the bathroom, and my baby sister discovering the beer keg at 5 AM when everyone else was asleep. You sound like you were having a lot of fun doing this one.
