Cruise Christmas

There's no good way to say that you've produced and recorded an original Christmas song, yet here we are. Hosting the holidays can be stressful, and sometimes you've just got to get away. I wrote "Cruise Christmas" to be loosely and lovingly based on my own mom's experiences (and quasi threats) over the years. So it's fitting that my sister Loui Za joined me for a duet. Hope this one makes it onto your holiday playlist, and look for more releases soon!

Lyrics:

Title: "Cruise Christmas”

She had about enough of sugar plumb blues

Waiting up for Santa with a vodka or two

Oh silent night, it never felt right

She had given up the thought of a gift of her own

Threw away the stockings that she put up alone

Oh jingle bells, she'll see you in hell

 

Mama's going on a cruise, cruise Christmas!

She's got nothing to lose, won't miss it much

Now she's on the beach with nothing on

What went wrong?

Oh mama what are we gonna do, without you

Oh mama our holidays are through

 

Well we should have saw it coming when she forgot the tree

Cancelled all the carols and she left us a key

Oh tannenbaum, now it won't be long

 

Mama's going on a cruise, cruise Christmas!

She's got nothing to lose, won't miss it much

Now she's on the beach with nothing on

What went wrong?

Oh mama what are we gonna do, without you

Oh mama our holidays are through

 

What a bright time, where we wanna go

It's the right time, down in Kokomo

Bermuda Bahama, lets rock the night away

 

Mama's going on a cruise, cruise Christmas!

She's got nothing to lose, won't miss it much

Now she's on the beach with nothing on

What went wrong?

Oh mama what are we gonna do, without you

Oh mama our holidays are through

 

Cruise mama Cruise mama

Cruise mama Cruise mama

Oh mama what are we gonna do without you?

Oh mama this holidays for you
