Merry Christmas Everybody

by Stompin' Tom Connors

For those Americans who don't know the Great Stompin' Tom, he's a prolific singer/songwriter who was born Charles Thomas Connors in Saint John, New Brunswick, in 1936. He was later adopted by a family in Skinner's Pond, Prince Edward Island. Stompin' Tom keeps rhythm by "stomping" the heel of his cowboy boot. His downhome, folksy brand of Maritime music can be heard at hockey games and kitchen parties throughout
the country.

Merry Christmas everybody! and a happy New Year too.
May your holidays be merry, and every wish come true.
May you always be remembered by those so dear to you
Merry Christmas everybody and happy New Year all year through.
Merry Christmas everybody and happy New Year all year through.

Well there's old Grand Pappy and he sure looks happy
with Granny just a slappin' her knees

There's old Aunt Mary with funny Uncle Harry
and they're trying to give the baby a squeeze

There's long lost cousins, kiddies by the dozens,
and they're gonna stay the whole day long

Get together now friends and neighbours,
Sing a happy holiday song.

Merry Christmas everybody! and a happy New Year too.
May your holidays be merry, and every wish come true.
May you always be remembered by those so dear to you
Merry Christmas everybody and happy New Year all year through.
Merry Christmas everybody and happy New Year all year through.

The turkey's on the table now and when your feelin' able
you can take another helpin' if ya will
But soon as ya eat it
I'm afraid ya gotta beat it
cause ya gotta give the chair to brother Bill

And Hey Uncle Marty it's an all night party,
and don't ya pour the drinks too strong

Get together now friends and neighbours,
Sing a happy holiday song.

Merry Christmas everybody! and a happy New Year too.
May your holidays be merry, and every wish come true.
May you always be remembered by those so dear to you
Merry Christmas everybody and happy New Year all year through.
Merry Christmas everybody and happy New Year all year through.

Indeed it is the gazebo (bandstand) in King's Square! Lovely isn't it? I thought you might get a little nostalgic around the holidays John...so I thought...why not send you a little piece of "home" for the holidays!

I hope you and your family have a wonderful and memorable Christmas. (And I wish the same for all the blog readers!)

Have fun and be safe!

I really enjoyed reading this!
Thank you, Missy.

I still say, "Merry Christmas"
If that offends anyone, then may they soon get over it.

I love you all.
