Song Description

The song is in the vein of Mel Torme's "The Christmas Song", meant to bring forth memories of Christmas' past based upon the visualizations of events happening in the present.

Story Behind the Song

Listening to Christmas CD's on the way to a gig in Charlottesville, Va, I came up with the nucleus of the song after listening to the Christmas Song, and White Christmas... That was around the end of November, and I finished it while awaiting a flight home at the gate at JFK, after a brief visit to Long Island.


"Beneath The Mistletoe" - Key of A
Words and Music by Gary Snead
Copyright © 2006

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.
