I didn’t think I’d be doing a Christmas related song this year but upon hearing Stefan Kartenberg’s blues backing for Mr_Yesterday’s song this happened.

I don’t know what you want from me
I’m happy when I am
I’m quiet on the days I’m not
I’m doing what I can

I don’t go by the calendar
for when and how to feel
I wonder how many holidays
are even based on something real

If it was up to me the big ones would be
Arbor Day and Earth
and maybe on a personal level
the day of your birth

If everyone all of a sudden
started caring about where we live
it would mean so much more to the human race
than any products you might give

How many holidays have we had
by the time Christmas rolls around
I looked it up on wikipedia
and ten is what I found

The last one lasts for two or three months
for the sake of the retail biz
but I’ll say Merry Christmas
when I’m merry and it is

But I’m not going to buy you a present
and I don’t want one from you
unless there’s something you really need
then I’ll see what I can do

We don’t have any religion
or any children to fool
I know what you might be thinking
but no I don’t think that’s cool

I think we missed out on
a normal upbringing
so now in my dotage
all I’ve got is singing

This amateur song
a shit about no one gives
and I’ll say Merry Christmas
when I’m merry and it is
