Description
I got to collab w/ Yves, the man! And it has been a joy to work with him! Thank you Yves for this opportunity! I also want to thank my little elf for helping me write these lyrics, bet you can't guess who?! Actually Yves got it started with "Andy wants a brand new Sax, Sigmund wants a Strat"...
Love you all, Merry Christmas, Happy New Year! ~ Katy ~

Lyrics
~ Jolly Old St. Nicholas ~

Jolly Old St. Nicolas,
Lean your ear this way!
Don't you tell a single soul,
What I'm going to say,
Christmas Eve is coming soon,
Now you dear old man,
Whisper what you'll bring to me,
tell me if you can.
When the clock is striking twelve,
When I'm fast asleep,
Down the chimney broad & black,
with your pack you'll creep,
all the stockings you will find
hanging in a row,
mine will be the shortest one,
You'll be first to know.
Solo
Andy wants a brand new sax
Sigmund wants a strat
Karen wants a Harley bad
Jamesy wants a Mac!
Gaylen wants a microphone
Andrew wants a bass
Michael wants a grand piano,
delivered to his place
Bobby wants another arm,
Mike wants more drums
Carrie wants a new ring.....
tone for her phone
Paula Munk wants a hunk
And Charles wants a new home
Yves wants another collab
with a saxaphone
Sylvia wants a new keyboard
Chris Flyn wants new strings
Bud wants to be called Kevin,
that's his real name!
All the other MacJammers
want their presents too,
We wish them all a Happy New Year
Oh ~ Merry Christmas, too!!!!

Your voice is sweet and pure, perfect for this song. Yves did a great job of making the music full and rich without ever overpowering the vox. I love the amended lyrics. Very cool.

kevmikwa said 3225 days ago (December 22nd, 2010)
Good strategy
That's a good way to get the MJ community to comment on a song: include everyone in it! I gotta remember that next time. You are indeed correct: I *DO* want a new set of (virtual) drums ... hoping I've been a good boy. Thank you for keeping the autotune level to a reasonable level (even though the warble still distracts me from time to time).

Excellent backer, Yves - you are a true multi-instrumentalist! Is that you soloing around 1:39+? Well done!
ktholliday said 3225 days ago (December 22nd, 2010)
~ Thanks, Mike ~
I appreciate the comments. Glad you stopped by. Have a bright and beautiful Christmas & a Happy New Year!!! ~ Katy ~

Talking about multi-instrumentalism
Mike, I try to play a little bit of these just to get me going creating a song, though I think you're the real multi-instrumentalist ! Man, if you play the keys like that, I don't know what I'll be doing on our next collab :-)

I indeed tried the solo on the song, though I often reproach myself lacking imagination.

How wonderful!
This was as delightful as anything I'd hear from Rockefeller Center this time of the year, except you are singing directly to us (I think you elf did a really great job making up Santa's List here--except am I the one getting the grand piano? I really don't have room but if I find an electric keyboard under the tree this year, I owe you guys a pizza lunch!) I'm so happy you were able to work with Yves--he is a consummate professional and just one helluva a nice guy (Yves, your work here is excellently realized--perfection) And to you Katy, your winsome delivery here is very charming and very well done. Thanks for sharing this with us you two--and wishing you both a very Merry Christmas and a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year. Take care now, Michael

I just love you, meases to pieces!Michael, you always have such a sweet spirit and you brighten my day, with all your delightful and uniqueness about you! ~ Michael, YES ~ capish on the grand piano for you, but if you insist.....an electric keyboard sounds magnificent! I would love to see you in the works of your home! You are such a gifted and talented musician. I am in awe of your special gifts! I just read that comment you posted from your newest song! Wow, I love that Santa's sleigh and the illuminus effects on that print you posted! It's swwwweeeeet! Thanks again, for wishing us a Mele' Kalikimaka and may your holidays also be filled with everything that makes this coming New Year bright and beautiful! Have a wonderful evening. We thank you immensely! Keep in touch, my friend!!! ~ Katy ~

I've got a question...
Do you and J.D. each have your own recording setup or do you have to kick the man off when you are ready to lay down a masterpiece? In my house I had to get my own setup because my kid would not let me use his!

This is wonderful great! Your vocals are sooo cool!

Great collab - what fun!
Just to set the record straight - I'm good with Bud - it's actually what my wife and some friends call me - but I'm fine with Kevin obviously and really glad to be included in this excellent tune. I hear a little Sarah Silverman in the vocal delivery - but if you went with that the list would be unprintable. Very fine arrangement from Yves as usual and great lyrics and vox Katy.

Hi Katy. Your vocals have just the right amount of child-like Xmas glee. Great arrangement by Yves as well. Congratulations to you both.
P.S. I would like an American Standard Tele (just in case Santa is an "invisible" MJ member!). Merry Xmas to you both. Regards, Peter.

Love your voice Katy, I can imagine you singing almost anything as you seem so adaptable though mostly I can imagine you fitting into the Dinah Washington or Billie Holiday style or maybe even the Chicago hokum scene. There are many famous singers who don't have anything like your talant gal, and that's because they have no personality or character in their voices. It's down to the actress within. Great track by the way.
