The time has come again
the holidays are coming
ring the bells and bang the drums
Christmas has come again

we decorate the trees and hang up our stockings
hoping that this year, Santa will remember
that we’re not kids anymore, why would we want trains
when all we really want is the latest video games

Why would we say “Season’s Greetings” or “Happy Holidays
when it’s “Merry Christmas” all the way

So let’s gather together to celebrate
What this day truly means to us.
