Coloring Club Plus — 12/20/19

Dec 20

First please note that the image above looks better than usual because I scanned it rather than took a picture of it.  It was a coloring page I printed out rather than in a book which makes it easy to scan.

I chose this song because it has gingerbread in it and because I liked the sound, the lyrics, and the video. It is only after looking at wikipedia that I see Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton are in a relationship, which makes the song even more special to me.

You Make It Feel Like Christmas is the fourth studio album by American singer-songwriter Gwen Stefani. The album, which is Stefani’s first full-length Christmas-themed album, was released on October 6, 2017, by Interscope Records. The record was executively produced by Stefani and Busbee, with additional production coming from Eric Valentine. The standard version of You Make It Feel Like Christmas contains twelve songs, featuring six original songs penned by Stefani, Busbee and Justin Tranter, and six cover versions of Christmas standards. While going on a nature walk near the Oklahoma ranch house belonging to boyfriend Blake Shelton, Stefani felt inspired to record a Christmas album and began writing what would later become “Christmas Eve”. Recording sessions took place in the summer months of 2017; several of the tracks’ titles leaked in August, leaving Stefani to confirm the project in September. The album’s original songs make references to Stefani’s newfound love and relationship with Shelton.

 

I want to thank the storm that brought the snow (uh uh)
Thanks to the string of lights that make it glow (uh)
But I wanna thank you, baby
You make it feel like Christmas

It barely took a breath to realize
We’re gonna be a classic for all time
I wanna thank you, baby
You make it feel like Christmas

Sweet gingerbread made with molasses
My heart skipped and I reacted
Can’t believe that this is happening
Like a present sent from God
Sleigh bells singing hallelujah
Stars are shining on us, too

I wanna thank you, baby
You make it feel like Christmas

Thought I was done for, thought that love had died
But you came along I swear you saved my life
And I wanna thank you, baby
You make it feel like Christmas

Sweet gingerbread made with molasses
My heart skipped and I reacted
Can’t believe that this is happening
Like a present sent from God
Sleigh bells singing hallelujah
Stars are shining on us, too

I wanna thank you, baby
You make it feel like Christmas

I never thought I’d find a love like this
But I found forever in that very first kiss
I wanna thank you, baby
You make it feel like Christmas
Oh oh (oh thank you baby)

I wanna thank you, baby
You make it feel like Christmas
Songwriters: Blake Shelton / Gwen Stefani / Justin Tranter / Michael James Ryan Busbee

      I think the odd pairing you mean is Gwen and Blake? I agree! Never would expect Ms. High Maintenance to be with Mr. Down to Earth! Maybe he’s converting her to a more natural lifestyle?
