A Christmas Song!

Lyrics

Oh boys and girls it’s
that time of year again
it’s time to show off all our
generosity to our friends
We’ve been waiting for
three hundred sixty four
days in which we’ve been real good
and done all of our chores
But I think that it’s important
that we think of those out there
to whom we do not give presents
even though we really care

’cause there’s just one man
who gets nothing each year
and it’s certainly not because he’s been bad
how he longs to hear
Santa’s reindeer
but he never has
and yeah that makes him sad
he never has and yeah that makes him sad

Because everyone thinks of Jesus
On the eve of Christmas
But nobody ever thinks to put him on their list
so Jesus gets nothing for Christmas
yeah Jesus gets nothing for Christmas

When he was a boy
Back in Galilee
He didn’t got presents
’cause Christmas didn’t exist you see
And now that he’s grown
Nobody guessed
That he wants that
24 piece metric drill bit set
Yeah Jesus was a carpenter
You know that that is true
And he’s tired of using
2,000 year old tools

Just because he’s the man
Who gets nothing each year
Even though he hasn’t been bad
How he longs to hear
Santa’s reindeer
But he never has and yeah that makes him sad
He never has and yeah that makes him sad
You know, everyone thinks
Of Jesus
On the eve
Of Christmas

But nobody thought to put him on their list
So Jesus gets nothing for Christmas
Yeah Jesus gets nothing for Christmas

All he wants is
World peace
But he also really likes the look
Of that new old navy fleece
And yeah he wants to end
Violence and war
But he also kinda wants to
Try out Grand Theft Auto 4
He gets no milk and cookies
Like that fat Santa Clause does
He’s the reason for the season
But he’s always sad because

He is the man who gets nothing each year
Even though he hasn’t been bad
How he longs to hear
Santa’s reindeer
But he never has and yeah that makes him sad
He never has and yeah that makes him sad.

Because everyone thinks of Jesus
On the eve of Christmas
But no one ever thinks to put
Him on their list
So Jesus gets nothing for Christmas
Yeah Jesus gets nothing for Christmas

Oh Jesus just doesn’t know what to do
He doesn’t want to seem like an ungrateful youth
And the worst part is it’s his birthday too
And Jesus gets nothing for Christmas.
