Happy Holidays!

A couple of yacht carols (like yacht rock, only merrier) to get you into the holiday spirit!

Santa Baby (I Want A Yacht...)

Santa baby, just slip a Sabre under the tree, for me.
Been an awful good girl,
Santa baby,
So hurry down the chimney tonight.

Santa baby, a 54-foot Beneteau too…flag blue.
I'll stand watch for you, dear,
Santa baby,
So hurry down the chimney tonight.

Think of all the ports I've missed,
Think of all the sailors that I haven't kissed,
Next year I could be just as good... if you’ll check off my Christmas list.

Santa baby, I want a yacht and, really, that's not a lot.
Been on foredeck all year,
Santa baby,
So hurry down the chimney tonight.

Santa honey, one thing I really do need,
The deed... to a J/109,
Santa baby,
So hurry down the chimney tonight.

Santa cutie, just fill my stocking with some teak decks…and checks,
To pay my yard bill on time,
Santa cutie,
and hurry down the chimney tonight.

Come and trim my Christmas tree with some decorations bought at Hinckley;
I really do believe in you,
Let's see if you believe in me...

Santa baby, forgot to mention one little thing... A ring...
For the spinnaker pole;
Santa baby,
So hurry down the chimney tonight.

Hurry down the chimney tonight.

Hurry...to CYC…tonight.

Baby It's Cold Outside (The Frostbiting Song)

I really can't stay (but baby, it's cold outside)
I must sail away (but baby, it's cold outside)
This evening has been (been hoping that you'd pop in)
So very nice (but you can’t launch, it’s solid ice)
My skipper will start to worry (hey handsome what's your hurry?)
The PRO is pacing the floor (listen to that Northerly roar)
So really I'd better scurry (hey sailor, what’s your hurry)
But maybe just a half a drink more (you can check the tides while I pour)

Club members might think (but baby, it's stark out there)
Say what's in this drink? (so Dark ‘N Stormy out there)
I wish I knew how (it’s gusting to 40 now)
To break this spell (that’s not just chop, they’re 10-foot swells)
I ought to say, no, no, no miss (the fireplace is such pure bliss)
Well, maybe I could say that I tried (let some other guy catch a ride)
I really can't stay (oh baby don't hold out)
But baby, it's cold outside

I must bounce this joint (but baby, it's cold outside)
That’s kind of the point! (but baby, it's cold outside)
Your company’s been (how lucky that you dropped in)
So nice and warm (they’ll likely call it before dawn)
The Fleet Captain can’t be keener (your dry suit is at the cleaners)
The Race Committee’s there at the bar (a frozen rudder won’t get you far)
The beer and soup are delicious (wait a minute…there’s soup and beer?)
So let me check the NOAA radar (maybe someone might spare a spar…)

You could come along… (but baby, we’d freeze out there)
Stop singing this song… (the shores are all lees out there)
Frostbiting is grand (I guess I could change my plan)
Oh don't you see? (you can’t go sailing without me!)
We’re bound to have fun tomorrow (my protesting does ring hollow)
At least there will be plenty imbibed (don’t you know this gal loves to gybe)
Let’s go out and play (no N over A out, baby!)
Baby, it's cold outside!
