Contemporary Christian Acappella Vocal Band from Singapore! www.AGAPELLA.net

the gift of song is only given to a fortunate few.

A bunch of us decided to hone our vocal skills at the K-ster last night. It was great that our AGAPELLA alumnus Lynn managed to join us, and also Juan Boon.

We had such fun! For starters, I was very impressed that the K-ster songbook listed little-known songs for every season. I think we really should add this song to our Christmas repertoire for this year-- it'll go nicely with our "12 Pains of Christmas" skit.
After my fellow k-sters warmed up the set, I took over. Here's a pic of them looking (understandably) depressed as I blow them away with my phenomenal euphonic talent. They were probably thinking "Well, I may outlive Methuselah but I'll never be able to sing like that"! And who can blame them. I wasn't entirely sure what Chris was doing over in the corner, but he too seemed overcome by my powerful harmonics.

I don't want to toot my own horn, but I do get this sort of enthusiastic reaction quite often. It's nice to have fans.

PS. Thanks Dorcas and Stan for taking the initiative to organise! When can we go again?

Actually I was overcome with joy at finally hearing someone use the word 'euphonic' in a proper sentence.

She'd been drinking too much eggnog, and we begged her not to go
But she forgot her medication, and she stumbled out the door into the snow
When we found her Christmas morning, at the scene of the attack,
she had hoof-prints on her forehead, and incriminating Claus marks on her back.

Grandma got run over by a reindeer,
Walking home from our house Christmas eve
You can say there's no such thing as Santa,
But as for me and Grandpa, we believe!

Now we're all so proud of Grandpa,
He's been taking this so well
See him in there watching football,
drinking root beer and
playing cards with Cousin Mel.

It's not Christmas without Grandma,
All the family's dressed in black
and we just can't help but wonder:
Should we open up her gifts, or send them back?
(Send them back!!)

Grandma got run over by a reindeer,
Walking home from our house Christmas eve
You can say there's no such thing as Santa,
But as for me and Grandpa, we believe!

Now the goose is on the table
and the pudding made of fig
and the blue and silver candles
that would just have matched
the hair on Grandma's wig.
I've warned all my
friends and neighbors
better watch out for yourselves,
they should never give a license
to a man who drives a sleigh
and plays with elves.

Grandma got run over by a reindeer.
Walking home from our house Christmas eve.
You can say there's no such thing as Santa,
but as for me and grandpa we believe!

A sign would help. "Caution: Low-flying sleighs."
