It was the month before Christmas
When all through our land
Not a Christian was praying
Nor taking a stand.
You see the PC Police had taken away
The reason for Christmas, why no one could say
The children were told by their schools not to sing
About Shepherds and Wise Men and Angels and things
It might hurt people’s feelings, the teachers would say
December 25th is just a “Holiday”
Yet the shoppers were ready with cash, checks and credit
Pushing folks down to the floor just to get it!
CDs from Madonna, an X-Box, an iPod
Something was changing, something quite odd!
Retailers promoted Ramadan and Kwanzaa
In hopes to sell books by Franken & Fonda
As Target were hanging their trees upside down
At Lowe’s the word “Christmas” was no where to be found
At K-Mart and Staples and Penny’s and Sears
You won’t hear the word Christmas, it won’t touch your ears
Inclusive, sensitive, Di-ver-si-ty
Are words that were used to intimidate me
Now Daschle, Now Darden, Now Sharpton, Wolf Blitzen
On Boxer, on Rather, on Kerry, on Clinton!
At the top of the Senate, there arose such a clatter
To eliminate Jesus, in all public matter
And we spoke not a word, as they took away our faith
Forbidden to speak of salvation and grace
The true Gift of Christmas was exchanged and discarded
The reason for the season, stopped before it started
So as you celebrate “Winter Break” under your “Dream Tree”
Sipping your Starbucks, listen to me
Choose your words carefully, choose what you say
Shout MERRY CHRISTMAS, not Happy Holiday!
Please, all Christians join together and wish everyone you meet
Christ is The Reason for the Christ-mas Season!
