Alright, so in the last 12 mondays, I've given you 11 original songs. Today is number eleven! I have to admit that when I woke up this morning and remembered that it was #MusicMonday on Twitter, I got a little frightened. I didn't really have an idea of what song I was going to do for you and then suddenly one popped right in my brain. I think this might be my first #MusicMonday original song that was actually written on the day I posted it. So... that's fun, right?
There just aren't enough Xmas drinking songs, either, so maybe I can be the guy that fills that little niche. Also, unlike my other original song posts, I'm actually giving you the chords for this one. Usually I just promise to do it and then promptly forget. So, check out the chords below the video if you are interested. I'm not 100% married to this arrangement yet and it prolly needs another verse, but who has time to polish, right? I'm too busy make the rough outlines of songs.
Santa Claus Needed a Drink

Am well I stayed up real late G on Christmas Eve this year Am I was waiting for Santa C7 G7 cause I didn't believe that he was real Am So it came as a bit of a shock G when he walked through my front door A C G moaning nobody believes in me no more G7 yup Santa Claus needed a drink Am well who was I to stop him C7 so we grabbed a bottle of bourbon G and we drank til we hit the bottom G7 so don't be surprised on Christmas day A9 0102 if your presents don't appear A C G see Santa Claus is pretty damn hungover this year Am Well I slept in a little late G on the morning of the day of Xmas Am there were daggers behind my eyes C7 G7 and I could barely keep down my breakfast Am I clutched my head and stumbled around G just trying to remain upright A C G when I tripped over Santa Claus, I guess he the spent the night G7 yup Santa Claus needed a drink Am well who was I to stop him C7 so we grabbed a bottle of bourbon G and we drank til we hit the bottom G7 so don't be surprised on Christmas day A9 if your presents don't appear A C G see Santa Claus got pretty freaking hammered this year
