Story

A real INCLUSIVE Christmas song. Not everybody celebrates Christmas, but everyone agrees that the Winter Solstice is a cause for CELEBRATION. A traditional-sounding holiday tune, but one specially created for modern sensibilities. 

Lyrics

 

Sappy Sentimental Solstice

 

Everybody’s home for the holidays,

Presents in their bags

Everyone’s got a tag and I saw one there for

For you and you and you

Decorations, cards on the mantel

Grandma cookin’ up a storm

The fire there to keep us warm

With a little nip of rum and egg nog too

 

Well it's a Sappy Sentimental Solstice Season

Everybody’s feelin’ fine

We’re all family and that’s a real good reason to be happy

Yeah it’s a sappy sentimental solstice season

I can hear the church bells chime

I love that Sappy Sentimental Solstice Time

 

You and me meet out on the balcony

Kissing in the evening light

That’s shinin’ as I hold you tight

And reflecting on the snow-covered fields around,

They won’t miss us, they’re too busy singing

Holiday melodies

Our noses are about to freeze

But we’ve got the warmest love we’ve ever found

 

 

Well it's a Sappy Sentimental Solstice Season

Everybody’s feelin’ fine

Everybody here has got a real good reason to be happy

Yeah it’s a sappy sentimental solstice season

I can hear the church bells chime

I love that Sappy Sentimental Solstice Time

 

(Bridge)

Everybody loves this time of year

It just seems to go by so fast

The songs, the laughter and the cheer

We wish that we could make it last (modulation?)

 

Yeah it’s a Sappy Sentimental Solstice Season

Everybody’s feelin’ fine

Everybody here has got a real good reason to be happy

Yeah it’s a sappy sentimental solstice season

I can hear the church bells chime

I love that Sappy Sentimental Solstice Time
