Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas to everyone. My Christmas treat:


SAIL THE WORLD
(sung to the tune of "Feed the World")


It''s Christmastime, and all I want is a bigger boat.
A cutter or sloop, but not a Hunter or a Beneteau.
In this world of plenty, I can dream of a Hallberg-Rassy.
Get a new wrap for your wheel it''s Christmastime!

But say a prayer, pray for the dealerships,
At Christmastime it''s hard when the docks are iced.

There''s a sea outside your window, and it''s a sea of turquoise green,
With tons of boats out sailing there, heeling to extreme,
And the Christmas bells that ring there are the clanging, banging, booms
Well, tonight thank God that you can sail there tooooooo.

And there won''t be snow in the Keys this Christmas.
The greatest gift they''ll get this year is race week.
Ooohh Where just about anything goes
The bands and booze do flow.
Do they know it''s Christmastime at all?

Sail the world,
Don''t you know its Christmastime

Sail the world,
Big discounts in the off season

Sail the world,
Reef early and reef often…

Sail the world…..

Denr is an unknown quantity at this point
Merry Christmas

In order to make this a non secular song would you have a version for the Benehuntalina crowd? Nicely done John!
