Description
Everybody loves a quickie every once in a while, so, I spent about an hour or so putting this one together. I wanted to do something a little lighter for Christmas, so here it is - The Night before Christmas at MacJams.

Merry Christmas to all and blah, blah, blah, blah.....

Lyrics
Night before MJ Xmas
@2006 Joseph Gurner

T’was the night before Xmas and all over the ‘Net
Not a pixel was stirring, not even a bit

The chat rooms were empty, the porn sites were down
and no one on MySpace could even be found

I sat at my MacBook with a frown on my face
looking for anything out there in cyberspace

and just as I started a new entry on my blog
a new window popped up from out of the fog

I clicked on the link as fast as I could
hoping that finally, I’d found something good

The website sprang open and I knew really quick
that the website I’d chosen was just the right click

The banner said MacJams: Mac Music Makers Central
and there’s no appropriate word to go here, that really rhymes with central

I started clicking on songs to see what I’d hear
and I couldn’t believe what enter my ear

The cool sounds of Mungo and jiguma and Ziti
of Greenstone, Cydniko, JOAN and of Rebsie

(Okay, I know Rebsie and Ziti don’t really rhyme, but you try to find two MacJammer’s names that rhyme just in the spur of the moment and see how well you do.)

I listened to their songs and downloaded with glee
such great music for my iPod and all of it free!

I decided right then I wanted to play along
so I dragged out my guitar and recorded a song

At first I was nervous. But then I started having fun
and before I really knew it, my first song was done

So laying a finger on my MacBook’s keys
I clicked on submit, and it uploaded with ease

I waited and watched as people clicked on my song
and they started to comment and vote before long

I checked it obsessively all though the day
to see what these MacJammers had to say

The comments were good, supportive and polite
so I decided it was time to sign off for the night

As I read the final comment before I closed out the site
it said “Merry Christmas to all and to all....

Wait a minute! Did some one give me a FIVE?!! What the hell! They didn’t even leave a comment! I mean, who leaves a five without a comment? Oh, you’ve got to be kidding me. This is AT LEAST and eight. I’d give it straight tens. God! I can’t believe this. I bet it was.... no, wouldn’t have been Neil, it’s night time in Australia and he always leaves a comment. Mungo? Nah, he’d say something if itwas that bad..... Dion? No... wait.. where is Dion? I haven’t seen him in a while. I bet it was Lisa.... no... maybe Mikki? Oh, I bet it was one of those guys from JOAN. yeah, that’s it. Oh, I bet they think they’re being funny. HA! I’ll show them funny.....

Bummer .... I just burnt my Xmas MacJams CD too : ) Great to hear your speaking voice Joseph, and the lyrics are neat. I think we can all relate to these - it's good to hear you haven't lost your sense of humour over there Joseph.
A lot of fun - thanks,
Neil

Ya just gotta laugh....
And if nothing else, maybe my Southern accent will amuse folks. :)

Glad you enjoyed it, Neil. And thanks for all the support you've given me here at MJ and for all the great music you give to us all.

Heehee
I'm feeling kinda goofy tonight (mostly exhuastion) That little drum bit in the begining made me chuckle

Aww, he said our names -- I would have snubbed YOU and ME if I had missed this one, huh...

Cool words dude! Fun song. Hey, I liked hearing your talking voice - It connected some cool dots that I have on you. It makes this and everything you've done more personable and I didn't think that that could be possible, cause you always lay yer soul out to share w/ us

This was really a fun little ditty, sir - And a phat thank you!!!

Enjoy the holidays! I'm really looking forward to a new year of great new music from you mister - Keep up the good work. D

Thanks Mysterious Stranger!
I've gotten used to hearing myself singing, but I still cringe when I hear my speaking voice. Especially if I'm not keeping my Southern accent under control. :)

Glad you stopped by and enjoyed it. And I'm looking forward to more tunage from you in the new year as well. (We may even have to team up again at some point. We still need to get your voice out there for people, man.)

Hope you have a great holiday, my friend.

Good work. I like the lyrics/poem used...creative. The music moves along well with the words and they work well together.
