This year I told myself over and over I wasn't going to do a melancholy song, so I had decided to do Joy to the World. But then it was time to buckle in and work on the song and I was at a low point. So instead of forcing/faking the joy I could hopefully put into the song another year, out came these new lyrics to an old favorite.
The ukulele in this song (the same one pictured on the cover) is the first stringed instrument I've ever made myself (other than a calculator case guitar in my high school algebra class). Just like my songs, it's far from perfect, but its my own.
