an early Christmas

Merry, merry, merry Christmas

It's Christmas in my heart

Merry, merry, merry Christmas

I hope all year
I play the part

Merry Christmas baby

This song is living in my heart

Merry, merry, merry Christmas

You're my holiday candle in the cold wintry dark

Merry Christmas, baby,
 and on New Year's Eve
you're the one
I'm kissing for a brand new start

Merry, merry, merry Christmas

This song is living in my heart

Merry, merry, merry Christmas
Merry Christmas baby
Merry, merry, merry Christmas

Good Wishes, John A. Conte Jr.
the new everyday media

(so maybe soon I'll find myself with a rented mcmansion in a gated community for a week with nothing to do but hang out by the pool and hot tub with the dog and a Fender Strat and an MacBookAir with Garage Band & maybe some sleigh bells to record this song for my wife Deanna from her everyday Joe 6pack husband for an early Christmas present where I email her the YouTube link with this song on her December bday?)

Deanna Conte Port Royal Plantation Planters Row Hilton Head Island, S.C. 1998
I had been going to this home here every year since I was 12 in 1982 and I used to daydream at the pool on the beach how when I was older I'd drive in from somewhere cool in a fancy car and have a good respectable wife and we'd visit with the family but we'd be staying on our own at the South Beach Marina Inn in Sea Pines Plantation near the Salty Dog and Calibogue Sound where my Uncle Tony & Aunt Jo Jo lived.
So this was pretty cool that in 1998 I was at the World Headquarters of
The Coca-Cola Company in Atlanta doing business and  I had rented a Mustang convertible and my wife and I stopped in to see the family on Planters Row in Port Royal before heading on down the road to our place I booked at the South Beach Marina Inn 1998 (been married a year)
