Thank god it's only once a year, christmas really sucks.
Consumer madness all around, but I ain't got the bucks.
So don't get me no presents, I really do not mind.
Buy something for the poor kids that the systems left behind.
We deck the halls and stuff our face, buy, buy, then get in debt,
Give people gifts they do not need, and get drunk to forget.
We sit in pews at midnight mass, look pious, say a prayer,
Forgetting those who wake that day, no gifts and cupboards bare.
When I awake on Christmas morn, my gift will be my health.
My christmas wish, that one day everyone will share the wealth,
So children will not go without, the elderly not cold.
Now that would be the greatest christmas story ever told.
