From the recording My Bachelor Ways
Not everybody celebrates Christmas, but everybody agrees that the Winter Solstice is a cause for CELEBRATION, because that's when the days start getting longer again.
DNO – vocals
René Gely – guitars, drums, piano, synths, harmonies
Craig Pedersen – trumpet
Everybody's home for the holidays
Presents in their bags
Everyone's got a tag
And I saw one there for you, and you, and you.
Decorations, cards on the mantle
Grandma's cooking up a storm
The fire there to keep us warm
With a little nip of rhum and egg nog too.
Well it's a Sappy Sentimental Solstice Season
Everybody's feelin' fine
We're all family and that's a real good reason to be happy.
Yes it's a sappy sentimental solstice season
I can hear the church bells chime
I love that sappy sentimental solstice time.
You and me meet out on the balcony
Kissin' in the evening light
That's shinin' as I hold you tight
And reflecting on the snow-covered fields around.
They won't miss us, they're too busy singing
Our noses are about to freeze
But we've got the warmest love we've ever found.
Everybody loves this time of year
It just seems to go by so fast
The songs, the laughter and the cheer
We wish that we could make it last
Make it last!
