Christmas Time

Christmas Time

Why does it have to be Christmas time
For us to treat each other kindly
Tell me why can’t it be this way the whole year through
Why does it take a holiday
To make us behave the way we know we should
No matter who’s making a list and checking it twice

Why does it have to be Christmas time
That makes our spirits bright
Is it too much to ask for every day
To turn into every night
Without a fight
Silent night

Why does it have to be Christmas time
Why not anytime whether rain or shine
Or cloudy or snowing you see where I’m going don’t you
If this is the best time of year
Why can’t the season last 365 days
Until it’s the only way we know

I say get rid of Christmas
I surely won’t miss this
Chaotic commercialization
Do your savior a favor
And mind your behavior
Without the threat of damnation
Do unto others
And you might just discover
That you don’t need a lighted tree
To feel alright
All is bright

Why does it have to be Christmas time
