"Christmas Time Is Here"

“WRITE A SONG” (Christmas Time Is Here)
Renee Ashley Baker
Lyrics by Renee Ashley Baker
Copyright 2009 by Renee Ashley Baker
(Set To “Christmas Time Is Here”. Music by Vince Guarldi and Original Lyrics by Annie Haslam)

Christmas Time Is Here
Time For Thankful Cheer
Write A Song Of Love Forlorn
And I’ll Pull You Near

Christmas Time Is Fine
Joyful It Reminds
Write A Rhyme of Happy Times
And I’ll Call You Mine

What Note Sends You High

Floating Through The Sky

Find A Chord That’s Snug  and Warm

And Then My Love I’ll Sigh

Christmas Time Is Here

 Lovers Dreams To Share  

 Misseltoe , the music flows,

 to win my heart just dare

Oh win my heart just dare

Part III:  Three “shoe” stories:

Story one: “Renee Ashley Baker’s Shoe Wearing”

       I’ve always been a “shoe horse” so , when I spent $85.00  on a pair of white Bally of Switzerland  “tennis shoes”,  the “office” , where I worked at the time, would spend all day staring at my feet.  (I’d sit with my feet propped up on my desk, just to “cause a commotion” in the office).   Anyway, I’d wear my white “Bally tennis shoes” with white “lace” ankle socks.  I ‘d wear black skin tight  exercise pants and  a tube top under a  black blouse.  (This outfit turned up on Sharon Stone in “Total Recall”.   It’s the scene where she’s kicking at Arnold Schwarzenegger in their living room.  Not a “good scene” for my outfit to be in,  but, since Arnold was playing a “Company”  bad guy–I guess it’s okay….). 

Story two: “Renee Ashley Baker Seeing A Shoe”.

          “Black–the two of them were wearing all black.  They both were wearing black trench coats on top of  all black clothes.  They were also both “blonde”.  ( Immediately I thought they were boy friend and girl friend but soon found out that they were “brother and sister”.    He– was movie star handsome and she, well, read on)….On their feet, were “Doc Martens”.   Black, knee high, and the shiniest shoes–boots– I had ever seen.  I didn’t think a shoe could shine that much and “not” have diamonds on it.  The shoes–the “Doc Martens” were what the military would  call “spit shined”.   But–what I found even more fascinating was the girl–the sister–the “blonde”.   Her eyebrows were pencil thin, and she had a “clef” in the center of  her chin.  Her skin was “porcelain white”  and perfect,  (I mean, her skin was flawless).   I stared, and stared, and stared.  I stared because she was a “twin, a look-a-like,  a “doppleganger”  for  Greta Garbo!   She was a “ghost”,  from the 1930’s,  standing in front of me.  She should be “modeling” I thought,  for Eileen Ford maybe.  But I suspected that she’d never do anything like “modeling”.  She was just interested in “astonishing people” with her resemblence to “the”  Greta Garbo….”

Story three: “Renee Ashley Baker Buying A Shoe”.

         “I was, as I’d been doing since I was 17 years old, looking through the pages of a “fashion magazine”.  It was “Vogue”  (or maybe “Harper’s Bazaar”  I can’t remember).  And…I loved them at first sight.  And… I said (to myself), “diamonds are a girl’s best friend”.   I typed up a letter and sent it –faxed it–to Jimmy Choo’s offices in New York City”.  The letter said,  ‘I must, must, must have a pair of your  “Roman sandals” –the ones– with the 33 and 1/3 carat diamonds on each ankle–the ones that cost $1 million dollars a pair….That’s it.   That’s all. I have them.   And…I’m keeping them in a “safety deposit box” at the bank to be worn only  to soirees, balls, galas, and  cultural events at The Kennedy Center in Washington DC.  Thank you Mr. Choo and thank you again Disney! ”

Disney will distribute Renee Baker Studios’  first motion picture,  in movie theatres,  worldwide under an “output deal” valued at $73.5 million dollars….


Note 1.   To set the record straight,  I have never attended Metro State College in Denver.

Note 2.  Still “NO” to Gail/Gale.  Still “NO” to Madonna. (I “can’t stand” Madonna).
