I started this song on the way to a club gig in Charlottesville, Virginia, and finished it while awaiting my flight home in the Departure Terminal at JFK after a trip to Long Island, and a reading with medium George Anderson.The engineer that re-mastered this record did an awesome job. It is finally, truly, radio ready! His name is Peter Maher, and he's mastered U2,  Depeche Mode, The Fray, Katy Perry, Damian Rice, Kelly Clarkson and Jack White, among others.   I took advantage of a special offer on Linked In for his mastering services, and man it was worth it!


"Beneath The Mistletoe"

There's a Snowman in the front yard,
The lights are all strung on the tree,
The presents are wrapped and in their place,
And the kid's are being good as can be,
The caroler's winding their way down the street,
Are all making a joyful noise,
The smell of the coffee and the pumpkin pie,
Add flavor to our holiday joys...

Evergreens are bowing to pressure,
From branches that are laden with snow,
Smoke from the chimney's all over town,
Swirls wherever the wind does blow,
Should the temperature fall a little lower tonight,
By only three or four more degrees,
We'll probably get a little more snow on the ground,
And the pond's are all sure to freeze...

Family gathers 'round the fireplace,
Waiting for the stockings to be hung,
The feeling of Christmas is in the air,
It brings excitement to the old and the young,
Soon Santa will be making his visit,
So off to bed all the children will go,
But before we turn in for the evening,
Why don't we meet beneath the mistletoe,
I want to wish you a Merry Christmas,
Beneath the mistletoe.
