Christmas Countdown: December 3 – “Santa Never Brings Me A Banjo” by David Myles

What better way to get ready for Christmas than by posting a Christmas song a day by East Coast artists.

Original Christmas songs are hit or miss.  Here’s a definite hit about not getting what you really, really, really want at Christmas.  And the video is even better.

“Santa Never Brings Me A Banjo” is from Myles’ Christmas Album It’s Christmas

Santa Never Brings Me A Banjo (lyrics)

Santa never brings me a banjo
And I can never understand why
Every Christmas Eve I see it in my dreams
But every Christmas morning I cry

Santa never brings me a banjo
And I can never understand why
Every Christmas Eve
I see it in my dreams
But every Christmas morning I cry

My brother got the train that he asked for
My sister even got a violin
How does he miss
The one thing on my list
In the letter that I sent to him

I told him how hard I would practice
Told him I would play so loud
That high lonesome sound
Would fill up the town
And I’d make my parents so proud

Santa never brings me a banjo
And I can never understand why
Every Christmas Eve I see it in my dreams
But every Christmas morning I cry
Santa never brings me a banjo
And I can never understand why
Every Christmas Eve I see it in my dreams
But every Christmas morning I cry

I ask my parents if they know why
Santa always leaves me sad
I do well in school
I follow the rules
And I don’t think I’ve been bad

Maybe it’s too much for the workshop
Maybe it’s too tricky for the elves
Since I’ll never understand
I think I’m gonna plan
To buy one for myself

Cause Santa never brings me a banjo
I can never understand why
Every Christmas Eve I see it in my dreams
Every Christmas morning I cry

Santa never brings me a banjo
And I can never understand why
Every Christmas Eve I see it in my dreams
But every Christmas morning I cry
