Description
I haven't posted for a little while as I seemed to have hit a blank and come up with a couple of songs I wasn't able to finish. I pulled myself together and whipped up a little ditty to bring an air of light hearted jollity to the season, Merry Christmas to ALL.

Lyrics
It’s Christmas

It’s the time of year again when people bustle round,
You can hear the music playin’ all around the town.
Everybody’s happy and the kids jump up and down,
It’s Christmas!

Santa’s in his grotto while the children stand and queue,
They all receive a present and they hold it tight like glue,
But when they get it home they find some pieces gone askew,
That’s Christmas!

Bridge.
Christmas songs and Pantomimes bring the season’s cheer,
Bells are ringin’ people singin’ carols they hold dear,
Stars look down on snowy ground and decorated trees,
Everybody wrapped up warm just in case they sneeze, Chooo!

The wind is cold and bitter, but the kids still have their fun,
Skatin’, throwin’ snowballs, until the settin’ sun,
Then they wander homeward ‘cause the Holiday’s begun,
It’s Christmas!
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, etc.
Bridge rpt.

Gathered round the fire with the faces all aglow,
They’re writing notes to Santa; up the chimney they will go,
Telling him the gifts the want, in case he doesn’t know,
It’s Christmas!
Outro .
Christmas, oh, it’s Christmas, wishing everybody “Merry Christmas”
Christmas, oh, it’s Christmas, wishing everybody “Merry Christmas” Though the wind blows cold, it’s like times of old,
In a cotton wool land filled with Mistletoe, it’s Christmas……
Merry Christmas!
Maurice Vizard.

It even has bells!
Maurice, they should play this on your local radio station. Bring them a copy and tell them it's a classic, because it should be. A fun song for the kiddies and adults who need to wind down after standing in those long lines.

Hey Roxie,
You've heard the expression "with bells on" LOL, well I grabbed what I could and played them here. As regards the Radio Station..... I wish. Glad you enjoyed my little spoof song, Cheers M

Right back on track!
Something about Christmas that seems to pull a person out of hibernation or state of suspended animation. It has been the same for me the past 6 months, until I decided to sing a Christmas song to jump start my upcoming new year. This song is lively and full of energy and you seem very inspired. Nice to see that enthusiasm and creative energy back. Same here for me. Happy holidays, Mov!

Great to
see you here again Leon;I was only thinking about you last week. You're right that we seem to pull ourselves out of ourselves at times like this and we need to. I think sometimes we can try too hard and then nothing comes.... this one seemed to pull itself together reasonably quickly though, once I got started. Glad you like it too.
I'm just off to comment on your latest which I just listened to (and it's really emotional), thanks again, M

I don't care...
...if it's not technical enough:

"I love this piece"

guitapick said 3054 days ago (December 18th, 2008)
Bad wording...
...on my part, Maurice. You'd mentioned that you "whipped this thing together"....what I shoulda (woulda/coulda) said was:

"You could have put this together in 5 minutes and it would have been great. It really does capture the spirit perfectly".

Hope that's a bit more like it...

paul f. page said 3055 days ago (December 17th, 2008)
somehow...
...at the local roller rink or ice rink and your music is playing as I watch children sliding around in circles, couples arm in arm, hand in hand...You make such accessible music, Maurice, that feels comfortable and warm. Beautiful little song. Get that number into a Jukebox and let the platter spin. Wonderful.
Peace.

I think
that you Moviz one one of the greatest therapies for distressed people etc. You don't need a pill just go to Moviz's MJ site!

Really! I am a love the almost Franky Avalon Venus feeling in this. Though it is not at all like that, I really enjoy the light chorus singing in the background. Of course mixed in with your wonderful feel good approach to your music compositions.

And just hearing this delightful piece, it made me feel so good I think now I will go in the front room and light up our christmas tree :)

Thanks and happy holidays!!!!!

Sweet!
This is just good old fashioned holiday cheer! You mention so many traditions and feelings that go along with the season. Cute ending with that last bell going up instead of down.
Check out my latest song called Sussex Carol
Moviz said 3050 days ago (December 22nd, 2008)
Glad you liked this Kristyjo
I did wonder if all across the pond would get the 'pantomime' thing, but at the moment all our Christmas Pantomime's have top American actors taking part. It seemed to start a couple of years ago with Henry Winkler playing a baddie in one of them. He must have passed the word around 'cause we're over run with them now LOL. Regarding the last note' I almost played 'obviously' flat, to give a final smile, but went for the 'ping' of a silver star instead LOL, Merry Christmas Kristyjo, regards M

Thanks Caroline
for the kind note... just wish it would make as much money as the 'classics' in the link you left LOL (very interesting read too, thanks again). I did try to contact Cliff Richard with the Christmas song I did last year, but couldn't find a way to him, except through his fan club and they didn't bother to reply to me. Have a nice Xmas Caroline, regards M

Remarkable
You have a knack for coming up with songs that sound from the first as if you've known them forever. This is another outstanding, instantly hummable, tune.

The Christmas spirit
What the tiler said.

I love the happy light feeling you bring with your song. I can see how this would fit perfect as a soundtrack to some classic Christmas Disney cavalcade and also to every image I keep of the peaceful and relaxed holiday season.

Hope you'll get better from that cold soon.

Thanks, and all the best to you and yours:)
