What's So Special About Christmas
It's just a day when people throw their sins away (Hail Mary Our Father)
Continue the next day
What a shame

The priest is preaching every Sunday
Alarming children then on Monday
Run and hide oh not that again
Pushed aside to save the Vatican

Merry Merry Merry Christmas (Repeat) To you
I'll tell you what's special about Christmas
It's just a day Hey!
Pick your favorite psalm
Won't you sing along

Chorus
Merry Merry Christmas to you
Merry Merry Christmas to me
Merry Merry Merry Merry Christmas

To Hell with your mistletoe
And your cheap garment robe
I won't confess this I won't confess that Yeah!
Don't tell me bless you my son
Enticing me on your lap
I won't confess this Confess That!

(audience cheer) (children singing)
Allright now, yeah yeah yeah, Allright now, Dig

I'll tell you what's special about Christmas
Those with hearts and trust will bid a Silent Night (Holy Night)
That is blessed and true to life
And leave the fakes behind leave the fakes behind
That is blessed and true to life (Repeat)
That is blessed

Pick your favorite psalm
Won't you sing along

Chorus
Merry Merry Christmas to you
Merry Merry Christmas to me
Merry Merry Merry Merry Christmas

“I really like the lyrics because it's optimistic yet antiestablishment. While it celebrates the season, it also makes a point about how we have veered from the true meaning of the holiday." Erek Gerende
