Description
This was the first Christmas song I performed and posted here in my first year '07. I gave it a re-mix and thought it might need another airing. Hope those who didn't hear it the first time will enjoy the 'old tyme' feel I tried to create and that others will give it another hearing too. I would have thought it a bit early to post Christmas songs, but I saw some posted a month ago, so here goes.... M

Lyrics
Christmas, Christmas

Verse 1.
Christmas, Christmas, A time when love and laughter fill the air,
Children singing carols everywhere,
Trees stand tall in the firelight’s glow
And the Baubles shine so bright,
While the kids curl up in bed so warm and tight.
Verse 2.
Christmas, Christmas, Greetings being shared by one and all,
Loved ones taking time to make a call,
And, share a gift just to show they care,
Even though it’s been a while,
Wishing “Merrry Christmas” with a smile.

Bridge.
Church bells will be ringing and maybe snow will fall
People will be singing and a good time will be had by all.

Verse 3.
Christmas, Christmas, When Loving feelings surface once again,
A cosy, cosy feeling everywhere,
As….thoughts are turned to absent friends,
And glasses raised with cheer,
So Mem’rys will keep burning ever clear.

Middle Break….
Half Verse.
The trees stand tall in the firelight’s glow
And and the baubles shine so bright,
While the kids curl up in bed so warm and tight.

Repeat Bridge,
Repeat 2nd verse.
Ending…… Wishing “Merry Christmas” with a smile,
Merry Christmas Everybody,
Merry Christmas Al,l
Merry Christmas All,
Merry Christmas All.

Christmas
There is no time like it! This is a perfect example of why this is such a great time of year. Not too soon at all! I already put up two of them....I figure anytime from the day after Thanksgiving is "the season". Since I missed the first airing, I'm glad you put this up again.

Christmas, Christmas.
This is a really nice piece of songwriting. Lyric goes hand-in-glove with the music, and really expresses the holiday spirit well. Consider sending this one out to publishers if you are so inclined.

Merry Christmas, Mo
and, other than for commercial purposes, it is never too early. Besides, if everyone posted their Christmas pieces at the same time, we'd have a hard time hearing them all before Easter.
This is your usual, warm, wonderfulness. Thanks, and have a terrific holiday season.

A sentimental journey
Hi Maurice. This took me on a sentimental journey back to a simpler, less hurried time. I like your vocals - just right for this style of music. Thanks for dusting off the hoar frost on this one and making it available to more recent MJ'ers. Regards, Peter

This could easily be on a Christmas compilation cd, alongside the likes of Burl Ives, Nat King Cole, and Bing Crosby. Absolutely ideal for hanging decorations on the tree! So nice to listen to - thanks for reposting, and Merry Christmas to you!

Old Time Feeling
Maurice, I remember the original post, though not clearly enough to comment about this remix, though I must say that THIS is just about as perfect a little Christmas song as I have heard anywhere. Definitely, this one should be on the radio as a perennial tune! And while the song itself is really superb, your delivery of it is right on the money. I enjoyed this so much and am glad that you posted it again.

Nice retro feel. This reminds me of the soundtracks I'd hear as a kid during my favorite holiday TV programs. Nice vocal, particularly on the bridge.

Soothing
This wonderfully recalls Christmases of days gone by . . . . I thought of Nat King Cole as I listened. I'd gladly turn on the Christmas tree lights, cozy up next to a warm fire, drink a cup of hot cocoa, and listen to this. In a world that is becoming increasingly cynical, it is so soothing to the soul to hear music like this. Beautifully done.

Thank you
Yes, it does hark back to a time of relative peace and harmony... I just wish it really was like this, but maybe listening will bring a time of respite from the hustle, bustle and worry of modern times. Again Catalina, thank you for listening and for your very kind comments, regards M

Enjoyed this...
My wife loves Christmas Time like a little child does. You have a good voice and approach to the material you are singing about, and I appreciate that. It almost has that sort of old-time classic feel about it.
