Darcy the Dragon

We listened to quite a few records growing up. (I feel sorry for little ones these days who only have CDs.) My dad was a big fan of Roger Whittaker (it's OK if you don't know who in the world he is), and I think we had a few of his regular records as well as a Christmas album. One of our most beloved holiday songs EVER was on that Christmas album, and last year Jan Michael & I found a Roger W. Christmas CD in the cheap-o bin at Fred Meyer, and I was sooooooo excited because, finally, after years & years, I would be able to listen to it again and prance & frolick around, just like I did when I was a little gal. But alas. The song had not been included. (No wonder it was in the $6.99 section.)

HOWEVER. This morning I am delighted, through the wonder of YouTube, to present what is certainly going to become your very favorite holiday song (even though Jan Michael is not convinced of this). I myself have listened to it twice already this morning :)

Can't wait to hear this one, we listened to my Mom's Roger Whittaker records when we were little and I think our fave was the one where he whistles and tries to teach the audience, we loved trying along :D
Also liked the one about the seasons and the sea pounding the shore? all I remember just now :)

Yes!! It's so nice to know that someone else out there has heard and likes that song as well. It is a good song, and my mom has a recording of it on a tape cassette, but I'm trying to find it online for a better quality sound.

What a great song...I just knew I should have checked your blog while in Colorado. The kids would have loved this song!
