    Default Original Christmas Song Competition

    That title should have read Original December Song Competition

    OK that time of year that you either love or dread is coming around again.
    Write a new original end of year season song for this competition.
    Post it here.
    One song only please.
    I would like the 'winner' to be chosen by the participants.
    So if you enter a song you must be willing to vote for the other song that you like best. You can vote for one song only by PMing me.
    No prize - only the satisfaction of being picked by a majority of your song writing peers. Yep. If you don't vote you can't win. I really want this to be decided by the consensus of ALL participants.
    This also means I can enter my own competition as I have been working on a little song.
    The song can be about any aspect of this time of year - positive or negative.
    Entries close on December 20 and hopefully your votes will come in so that the winner can be annouced on December 25.

    thanks for running this competition Brian.
    the poor old contests board has had tumbleweeds blowing through it for so long.
    will very much look forward to folks' songs and following the thread.

    OK I'll get the ball rolling and set the bar nice and low.
    This is meant to be a kind of 'hicksville' kids Christmas song based around the nativity scene.




    Little baby Jesus in a stable born x2
    Lying in the manger safe and warm
    Little Baby Jesus in a stable born

    Little baby Jesus heard the donkey bray x2
    Donkey gonna carry Jesus safely away
    Little baby Jesus heard the donkey bray

    Little baby Jesus saw the shepherds bow x2
    Whole wide world got a new King now
    Little baby Jesus saw the shepherds bow

    Little baby Jesus saw the three wise men x2
    They followed the star to Bethlehem
    Little baby Jesus saw the three wise men

    Little baby Jesus a Savior new
    Came to die for me and you
    The good news that grew and grew
    Look at the date it must be true

    Little baby Jesus heard the angels sing x2
    They were singing just for him
    Little baby Jesus heard the angels sing
    Little baby Jesus made the angels sing

    An important and really fine song Alan. Thank you!



    For all participants (and I sure hope we get many)

    ANY subject about this time of year is fair game. It does not have to be Christmas related.

    Can we please put the lyrics of our songs in the posts.

    Hullo - been a while but I've decided to do more than lurk and play along with some of these ukeing larks on UU.

    In that case, my entry should hopefully qualify as it is called Winter.



    Lyrics to help guide you through my impenetrable English accent...

    Deep inside me is the smell of freshly baked bread
    And the woven woollen colours wrapped around your hands
    and the white ground
    Sparkling, the way childhood memories do,
    Expanding in an oven, fearless in the safe hands of the snow
    Now we're falling down

    What is it that wakes a person to the world?
    I know it wasn't the snow
    It fell in silence so cold

    I'll know when it's time, no matter where I am
    There'll be flowers in my window and a sadness in the
    corners of my smile
    And the birds have flown for the winter
    But they always come back again, it's not an end or a beginning

    What is it that wakes a person to the world?
    I know it wasn't the snow
    It fell in silence so cold

    Something woke me up
    In the deep dark of the night
    In the silence and cold, cold, cold

    Can it be a parody? The leader of our group just wrote one, "All I Want for Christmas is One More Uke" that she dedicated to me because of my UAS. The group is going to do it for this years Holiday Show at the Culver City Senior Center.

    I'm really after new original songs.
    I'd love to hear it though - why not post it in the Links and Videos board?

    Thanks for joining us and bringing this little gem.
    You see I think two minutes is the ideal length for a song.
    And this is such a terrific performance and the song is so well crafted!

    I can do that after the show, but in the mean time, here are the lyrics.

    All I want for Christmas is one more uke, one more uke, one more uke.
    Please Santa Santa bring me one more uke and I’ll play a song for you.

    My life is good. I got my friends and I don’t need more stuff.
    But in the ukulele world one just ain’t e-nough. So

    All I want for Christmas is one more uke, one more uke, one more uke.
    Please Santa Santa bring me one more uke and I’ll play a song for you.

    I got big ones, small ones, hang-on-the-wall ones. Uku-leles ga-lore.
    And I love to strum, strum each one. BUT... I still want more...more...more!

    All I want for Christmas is one more uke, one more uke, one more uke.
    Please Santa Santa bring me one more uke and I’ll play a song for you.

    LA-LA-LA, LA-LA-LA, LA-LA-LA La la la la la la la la LA-LA-LA and I’ll play a song for you.

    All this multiplyin’ I’d explain it if I could.
    But in this crazy world we live they make me feel so good. So

    All I want for Christmas is one more uke, one more uke, one more uke.
    Please Santa Santa bring me one more uke and I’ll play a song for you. One more!
