Jingle Bells (done my way)

Description
Since we are expecting 7-8" of the white stuff tonight in Minneapolis, I thought I'd unleash my traditional Macjams version of that beloved seasonal ditty.

Stay warm!

Michael

"Jingle Bells" was written by J. Pierpont Morgan (or something like that--I just know he tipped over quite a long time ago).

Arrangement: Gershwin Klein
Vocal and vocal arrangement: MJK
Lyrics: Some kid who was in my fourth grade class--I can't remember his name (all I remember was that he had a peanut-shaped head with a big dent on the top and used to get a puddle on his head whenever it rained) but he's probably my age now.

super duper
shave and a haircut...
alternate lyrics. Michael you must be from the future... some kind of terminator swing robot. I know this as your new bus stop hasn't been invented yet. Way too advanced.
Smiles for miles, thanks

Ted!
Nah, I'm just from New Jersey (but that's impressive enough I think!) You know how to make a guy beam--thanks so much my friend (and I'll give you a full, detailed report, sparing no graphic unpleasantness involving that new bus stop and route Monday evening). You take care now! Michael

Thank Goodness...
I don't drive, oy!

Hehe, this is quite funny. As you know I'm not a fan of Christmas songs, but this is quite the exception. Just the medicine I needed tonight, your voice heals me Sensei.

Top notch, yep yep!

Impsie
(Wasn't "Impsie" one of Santa's reindeer? Maybe I'm confusing it with Clorox and Blintzes). Well, you know me very well and I'm not overly crazy about most Christmas music either--probably because they start in with it the day after Halloween and I'm absolutely and resolutely saturated with it by Thanksgiving! Now, if I could prescribe this jinque as an inhalant or in liquid form, I'd ship it right out to you Impsie--you get well soon and glad you are taking care of that crappe you got! Just don't pass it on to me! I'm still not sure that sinus infection is gone yet! UGH! Thanks again--you take good care now! Michael

Oh, I live on a snow emergency street--the plows always come by AFTER I've shoveled our sidewalk and pile it back on it again ("Life in Minnesota Routine #37") Glad you could stop by!

Is it any better in St. Paul or did we both get hit equally with that stuff? And then next week, highs of 15?! It's too early for this "January" stuff!! Thanks so very much for your warm reception on this and hope one day to meet up with you. Until then, wear your ear muffs and gloves and take good care! Michael

Haha!
Very clever. I wonder if you could do a British version? I can't think of a British car that rhymes with "sleigh" or "way"! Although you can buy Chevrolets here. :-)

Good stuff.

Hi Dave...
...I must admit, I'm not only ignorant about the makes of cars out your way, but I can't tell a Toyota from a Chrysler out here (autos and I never formed a particularly strong bond for some reason!) Thanks very much for listening to this stuff and for the nice remarks. You take care now!

Oh that guy--yeah, I remember that kid very well. We used to have hotly contested debates as to who was stronger, Batman or Superman (his boy was Batman, which I thought was the dumbest thing I'd ever heard, but being he had a peanut shaped head with a dent on top, I'd give the kid a break now and then and made concessions--I felt badly for him, yanno?) Thanks again!

pushing the play button, cause I'm not a fan of those traditional X-mas songs, but knowing you, I thought this just couldn't be a standard tune :-)

Happy Holiday to you Lyn
This is the time of the year that I'm more thankful for the many wonderful and dear friends I have than for anything else I might get Christmas morning. And you are at the top of Santa's List in my books Bapsie. Thanks so very much--and you take good care now!

Should we be expecting your rendition of "Oh Holy Night" any time soon? That would be just wonderful!

Not to mention, I didn't get one of those animated thingies, oh the humanity!

You know Impsie, I still have the "Cartman" styled version I did of that somewhere around here and perhaps......Oh no! I didn't give you an thingie! Of all people--well here, this is better than some old reindeer and a fat guy in a red suit:

Hi Michael. You have managed to put my aversion to Xmas carols on hold for a short while. I'm more used to the Batman/Robin/Craven A version of this old chestnut. Keep having fun. Regards, Peter.

I've met very few musicians who kind of cringe at the thought of doing Christmas music and usually select December as the month they put away their instruments and try winning a few bucks at the race track (so thank you!) Take care now, Michael

He was one of those kids that everyone else said "something just ain't right with that kid" but we never could put our finger on it (not that anyone wanted to put their fingers on him either!) Thanks again Dave--take care now! Michael

What a hoot, Michael
Love the lyrics, and as always your delivery make the song.

But I have to wonder, does the guy still have a puddle on his head when it rains. If so,it might be a good place to build a snowman this winter.

Last I heard, the kid is in his late 40s and owns and operates a creosote factory somewhere down south. He employees only people with peanut shaped heads incidentally. Thanks again--you take care now! Michael
