Not quite Perry Como...

Not quite Perry Como...


Not everyone celebrates the festive season in the same fashion, but everyone agrees that the Winter Solstice is a cause for CELEBRATION, when the days start getting longer again.

Verse 1

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

love that sappy sentimental solstice time.

Verse 2

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 

Holiday melodies

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!
