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...
The celebrated holiday song from multi-talented and multiple-award-winning Halifax-based roots musician David Myles is now available as a bright and fun children's picture book. Young David writes frantic letters to Santa every year, requesting a banjo, but to no avail: "How does he miss / the one thing on my list / in the letter that I sent to him?" Follow the ups and downs of the holiday season with David, his furry friends, and his family, as he pines for his most-wished-for holiday gift.
Featuring illustrations from the animation studio that created the song's well-loved music video, a special holiday message from David Myles, and original sheet music for those who wish to play along, Santa Never Brings Me A Banjo is sure to inspire many a holiday singalong.
"This song/poem was written in response to the author's memories of being a young boy waiting every Christmas for the gift he wants - a banjo. Children can hear the eagerness and frenzy in his words as he ponders why Santa doesn?t bring him the gift he craves." Resource Links (Pouch Cove, NF)
