Story

This song started as an idea in September that seemed a bit out of reach for a song-writer musician who, to this point, had played swing-style big band as a drummer. When I decided to engage StudioPros (www.studiopros.com) to help with my album project, I thought, "why not!?" and decided to produce this swing number and try to get it out by Christmas. I did (barely), but it will be here for next Christmas and hopefully many after as well. Please enjoy. Although I'm going back to my rock roots for the album, I do have a few more cool swing band ideas as well, including a showcase piece for the drums. If you like Swingin' Christmas, let me know and I'll work adding some other swing numbers to my reportoire!

Swingin’ Christmas

Christmas time is finally here
Time to spread some Christmas cheer
And remember why we’re here
Let’s sing some Christmas songs

Up above the stars are bright
Down below it’s snowy white
Let’s wake up this silent night
And swing some Christmas songs

If you can’t sing like Ella or Sinatra too
You can be one happy fella
Singin’ ‘bout things the angels do.

Underneath the Christmas star
People join from near and far
Doesn’t matter where you are
Let’s swing some Christmas songs

Music

Maybe you like hip hop or good old rock n’ roll
Maybe you like funky soul
It doesn’t matter how you roll

Whether you are young or old
Time to brave the Christmas cold
Let your voice be loud and bold
And swing some Christmas songs

Music

Up above the stars are bright
Down below the snow is white
Let’s wake up this silent night
And swing some Christmas songs

Maybe it takes you higher rockin’ round the Christmas tree
Or chestnuts on an open fire
May be all that you desire

Christmas time is finally here
Time to spread some Christmas cheer
And remember why we’re here
Let’s swing some Christmas songs

Instrumental

Maybe all is calm and bright
Or jingle bells will make things right
Don’t be frosty and uptight
Let’s swing some Christmas songs

So when you hear them carol don’t sit there and be rude
Otherwise I swear I’ll
Have to turn and call you Mr. Scrooge.

Up above the stars are bright
Down below the snow is white
Let’s wake up this silent night
And swing some Christmas songs

Christmas time is finally here
Time to spread some Christmas cheer
And remember why we’re here (Slow Outro)
Let’s Swing some Christmas
Sing Some Christmas
