Steve's Christmas Log (Jamie MacBlues) On CB Nation Xmas album 2016

Song I wrote for CigarBoxNation 2016 Christmas album. Whole album available for free at CBNation site.

Steve's Christmas Log (Jamie MacBlues)
I was sitting underneath the Christmas tree, I didn't have no worries and no worries had me
When my baby came in, told me we were through
"You ain't been nothin but a liar and a cheat, you got wandering eyes, and wandering feet
I'm taking the car, and I'm taking the old hound too" (come on Blue, you good dog you)

I said you certainly pick your times to leave, I've had me some better Christmas Eve's
And don't forget my folks are coming over for their Christmas meal
She said " I like yer maw, but your dad's as bad as you, he's a cheat and a liar and a hundred other things too
And me and mama had a talk, and she's leaving with me too"

Well I went pure white, like I'd swallowed a frog, and I almost shat me a Christmas log
I figured this wasn't how Christmas was meant to be
I said "I'm gonna miss you, that's for sure, but somehow I feel I'm gonna miss the dog more,
For a man is only as lonely as a man chooses to be"

Now the moral of this story might be hard to see, I wrote the song, and it escapes even me
It's just a little ditty, to send to ma pal Steve
He's Slow of Paw but he's strong of heart, on CB Nation he plays a big part
And I just want to thank him, for all these Christmas CDs ( and everyone else

Jamie, there is some kind of serious malfunction in the video portion at one minute, 59 seconds.   It seems to be a badly focused photo of MacScrooge.

Nancy, I hope that ratty vermin knows the right number.

PS:  Nancy, I love that peeping Tom cat.   But I am calling nine one one.  Do you know their number?

Jamie, I HATE to say anything YOU did is good.  

Dang.   Darn.   Shite.   

Okay.  Got to say it.  That is some above average shite.   It is kind of like Iowa where we are ALL above average. 

Umm.   Ugh.  Hmm.  Shite.

Okay.   Okee dokeey.   All right.   Darn good.

Merry Christmas my friend, to you and yours and all our niche of the world.  Peace on earth. 

And if you need some quick Christmas cash or a bail bond, see my at Uncle John's Pawn Shop and Fast-Out Bail Bonds.
