Description
A cautionary tale about recessionary cuts up at the North Pole this year.

Bruce Springstoner stopped by with his trusty sidekick Tallahassee Steve Van Go to deliver the broken candy canes.

Wrote this for another one of those parody videos of the other Boss that my buddy Pete is doing.

Thanks Alan, you always take it up a level!

Bruce Springstoner (me): Guitars, vocals, Christmas type percussions, harmonica.
Tallahassee Steve Van Go (Alan-Northpoint): Bass and Backer Vocals.

Lyrics
Santa Claus Ain’t Comin’ ‘Round (This Year)

© 2008 John LaMantia for Boss Hook Music


There’s no joy up at the North Pole
Where Santa is this year
There’s just no work for all his Elves
I heard he’s laying off some reindeer
With the economy in recession
Bush has finally broke the bank
Raising oil prices to fight a senseless war
We got nothing left for our gas tanks

So say goodbye to Christmas shopping
Adios to Holiday cheer
Santa’s just too busted broke to make it to your Town this year
Santa Claus ain’t comin’ around!

It don’t make much difference
If you’re naughty or you’re nice
Cause you’re not making Santa’s list
I checked it once, and twice, no dice
The only list I saw your name on
Had no video games or GI Joes
Just a foreclosure on your mortgage
While your investments hit all-time lows

So say goodbye to Christmas shopping
Adios to Holiday cheer
Santa’s just too busted broke to make it to your Town this year
Santa Claus ain’t comin’ around!

So you better not cry! You better not shout!
You better not pout, I’m telling you why,
Santa’s just too busted broke to make it to your Town this year
Santa Claus ain’t comin’ around!

Diamond Dave once said, "If he's the Boss, then I quit". I actually like Springsteen, though. Springstoner sounds just as good! Great harmonies.
Check out my latest song called The Robots of Coconino County

Right on the mark
I missed this one before Xmas. Love the lyrics, so true they jump right off the screen and speakers. I had thought about writing a song about the economy but the way you did it and integrated it with Xmas makes it kind of a moot point now. Of course there is always something new coming around the corner. Sad but true!
Check out my latest song called Stenosis Commitosis
