Stan Davis: Music

A Joyful Feeling

(Stan Davis & Friends)
music & lyrics by Stan Davis
Originally written as a song in a musical adapation of "The Velveteen Rabbit".
A wonderful sensation
Is in each warm wish we send
What's the explanation
Why this elation ever has to end?

It’s such a joyful feeling
We find within us when Christmas is near
Let’s take this joyful feeling
And let’s prepare it, to share it all year

We could all be merry
In March and April, May and June
Why in February
Do we have to succumb to the dreary humdrums?

Christmas is the season
For everyone to celebrate
But we don’t need a reason
We should wait for the date to elate!

It’s such a joyful feeling
We find within us when Christmas is near
Let’s take this joyful feeling
And let’s prepare it, to share it all year

If we all remember
To share our joy with everyone
Why wait until December
To fulfil in the thrill, sharing peace and good will?

Some may say this folly
Frivolity shows we are mad
But if we all are jolly
It’s a madness we’re glad to have had

It’s such a joyful feeling
We find within us when Christmas is near
Let’s take this joyful feeling
And let’s prepare it, to share it all year!
