The Lyrics

The authors probably intended to promote the commercialization of Christmas. They succeeded! First read the original lyrics at: .As Americans infight over minor irritations, terrorists look for distractions and weak spots. I hope the latter continue to fail.
See gay pride walks, prissy bride walks,
Pressed on ev'ry day, while
It's unfair there's repealing of Christmas.

Children spurning, people turning,
Greeting style after style;
Hooked on ev'ry street vendor's yule cheer.

Whistles and all the bells,
Christmas is prime for their kitty.
Ching-ka-ching, merchants sing,
Crooning still 'Bon Holiday'.

See the court fights over top rights,
Thinking slights said and seen;
Ask the cops to rush in, save their pleasures.

Feel the slow crunch, gut amids hunch
It's a fantastic scene;
And above all the tussle, you'll fear

No one tells sleeper cells
At Christmas time to show pity.
Listening, hear them sing:
'Boon it will be, Christmas Day'.
If you sing this in public and people drop silver, keep it; but drop a note to .

I voted as the Nine Injustices often do. The meter and accents match the original exactly, but this parody omits the affected "echo" lines near the end. Surprising homonyms abound, like "Crooning still" and "Thinking slights said and seen". The humor is subtle or ironic; it's a protest against secular 'progress' , and a warning. A prophet is without honor....
