about

I was feeling like I needed one more original song, so about about 5 AM, and with 2 hours before I had to send these tracks to the CD manufacturer, I wrote and recorded this goofy Mellencampy jingle. I had borrowed a mandolin from a friend and used it to write and record the base track atop an obnoxious drum loop, then added the acoustic guitar and vocals, then rushed all the tracks off in hopes of getting CDs made and in my hands before my 6pm show 5 days later. The CDs literally showed up at 5pm during setup/soundcheck and I had to run home minutes before showtime to pick up the delivery. Sold out that night!

lyrics

VERSE 1:
There's a feeling that we get this time of year
I can't explain it but you know that it is near
Outside it's getting colder, come on, bring yourself on over
Babe, it's Christmas, make it last this year

VERSE 2:
There's a feeling that is falling with the snow
Oh and when that first flake hits you gonna know
So bring yourself on over, I can feel it's getting colder
Honey, it's Christmas, make it last this year

CHORUS 1:
Come on now, don't keep Christmas all to yourself
Now come on, share it with somebody else
Outside it's getting colder, come on, bring your body closer
Baby, we can make it last this year

SOLO:
(same as verse)

CHORUS 2:
Well this Christmas is our time for fun
While everybody else is on the run
We can bundle up and go outside
And then come back home and stay by the fire
Outside it's getting colder, baby, bring your body closer
Honey, we can make it last all year

VERSE 3:
There's a feeling that we get this time of year
I can't explain it but you know that it is here
So bring yourself on over, I can feel it's getting colder
Baby, we can make it last this year
Outside it's getting colder, honey, bring yourself on over
Babe, it's Christmas, make it last all year
