Captain & Tennille ring in the holidays with a new CD.

Captain & Tennille’s new CD, “The Secret of Christmas,” contains two songs, “Tahoe Snow” and “Christmas Star,” that Toni wrote when she and Daryl lived in the Lake Tahoe area. “I was walking on the Glenbrook golf course on Christmas Eve,” Toni recalls. “It was snowing like inside those little globes, with perfect flakes coming down. ‘Tahoe Snow’ just popped into my head.” She hurried home to her piano to write the song.
Toni also wrote two more holiday pieces for the album, which is on sale now, produced by Retroactive Entertainment.
“TAHOE SNOW” LYRICS*
(Listen to the song)
Tahoe snow and Christmas make me glad
To be right here where the sun shines
In the bright Sierra sky, I love it
Ho Ho Ho, says Santa ‘cause you know
He loves to fly through the mountains
With the snowflakes drifting by
Talk about your white Christmas
You’ve never seen a white Christmas
It hasn’t been the right Christmas
Till you’ve been there in the alpine air, oh
Come let’s go
We’ll have the brightest Christmas
In the Tahoe snow!
*Music & lyrics by Toni Tennille
