The Lyrics

To the poor people who think they have to buy, and buy, and buy for Christmas..........
Mail out cards almost sent.
Looms the threat....ain't no sense.
Parties, sent my regrets.
They ain't got no Christmas sense.
Ah, but...true meaning ain't no room.
Must shop! Forgot that there ain't no room.
For the Babe that I wish I'd seen.
King's almost here.

No boxcar, ain't no train,
Destination...somewhere plain.
Swaddling clothes, but no shoes.
On this great news I must muse.
Instead, I do myself surround,
Glitz and glamour all around.
What matter if I have no means.
Bring home my load.

I know for some, in one ear, it's all in vain.
All of His children He loves just the same.
Even when there is not much money around.
All of that will be overlooked.
No money - no frown.

I said..
Mail out cards almost sent.
Looms the threat....ain't no sense.
Parties, sent my regrets.
They ain't got no Christmas sense.
Ah, but...true meaning ain't no room.
Must shop! Forgot that there ain't no room.
For the Babe that I wish I'd seen.
King's almost here.

Oh, good, I thought this was gonna be about "The Return of the King." That would've been too precious for our own good.
