"Christmas, Don't Be Late (The Chipmunk Song)" was written by Ross Bagdasarian. His cousin was the famous novelist William Saroyan. Rostom "Ross" Bagdasarian is better known by his stage name of David Seville. Both of these men were Armenian-Americans and this means a lot to me since my son's girlfriend is from Armenia. Now, the song is most known as being sung by the cartoon Chipmunks-Simon, Theodore, and ALVIN, which were created by the aforementioned Mr. Bagdasarian!
(Funny fact, Ross Bagdasarian named them after the executives from the record company that produced his records.)
Now, this Christmas my son let me know that he realized the song in 3/4 time and is therefore a WALTZ! Also, he realized that it was a very pretty tune. There, you see...I always knew I loved this song! I ADORE waltzes! Christopher found a piano version of this song...so I have it for you here. Enjoy!
Hope you are all having lovely times with your family and friends. Blessings to you all! (And I am still wanting that hula-hoop!)
