Lyrics: Dear Santa…

You’ve got a big sack– jampacked
With heavy gifts of joy that could break your back
I can help you… damn straight
I can help release the pressure and reduce the weight
I’ll take my gifts now… and how
You know what I like— I’m willing to be wowed
I’ve been a good girl—giddy up
I saved half of your cookies and egg nog in a cup

Santa, how your sack does bulge Ho ho ho ho ho ho ho
Bursting with the gifts I love (of love) Ho ho ho ho ho ho ho
What could be inside for me? Ho ho ho ho ho ho ho
Ho ho ho ho ho ho ho Bulging sack of festive glee

You’ve got a big sack—paddywack!
The strain must be a constant risk of heart attack
Let me hold it– pick it up
I’ll keep it upright and inspect it close-up
You can trust me—fingers crossed
I’ll handle it with care so nothing gets tossed
Let me touch it—Jingle bells
I see something for me right there where it swells

Jolly yuletide clown Come on down
Loosen your belt, recline by the fire
I’ll roast some nuts and sing like a choir
I’ve been a good girl– I saved you a cookie
I’ve been a good girl– well, half a cookie
It’s better than no cookie

And realistically, I was left on my own for quite some time, so what did you expect?!

Show Announcement: KATBARET!

More balls than the Grey Cup!
Music laughter dancing love shenanigans!

KATBARET BANNER

120 Diner
120 Church Street Toronto ON

 

Civil Wray!
Civil Wray marks a personal and professional change for Andrea de Boer. Andrea takes both musical and personal chances with Civil Wray, offering an indie rock vibe, a twinge of country, and an infusion of Latin pop and soul that elevates her trademark smoky vocals.

Jessica Stuart!
Many are called, but the chosen are The Jessica Stuart Few. Simply put, when you’re the only ‘koto’ (a traditional Japanese 13-stringed instrument) playing indie singer-songwriter in the world, whose trademark red hair and genre-bending dancefloor grooves have taken you on multiple tours throughout Asia and Australia, despite being Vancouver born and a long-time Toronto native, you’re bound to raise an eyebrow or 2000.

And me– Kat Leonard!
Explosive irreverent theatrical musical comedy that leaves you with the drunken joy of a sugar rush. Building self-esteem, confidence and creativity.

Just for your weekend I wanted to share this fantastic interview I recently gave on the Speaking For Profit Podcast.

I share:

  • The energy of live events and the importance of improvisation.
  • Creating connection with an audience and taking them through a shared experience.
  • Wordsmithing your talk to match your audience and maximizing humour.
  • Dealing with speaker groupies
  • And much more…

The show is hosted by award-winning TV producer and ‘speak to sell’ expert Jason Reid and world-class national TV host, performer and presentation trainer Cindy Ashton. You can expect nothing less than an extremely entertaining podcast that delivers high-impact strategy to rock the stage.

The podcast features world-class speakers, performers and business superstars as they share their untold stories from stage and beyond – and that includes me!
