You have put on your feety pajamas
It's time for a long winter's nap
There's a knock on the door and a stranger is there
He wants you to sit on his lap
He takes your watch and he gives you a hairbrush
Your wife gets a wig on a chain
He says he can't stay
Cause he's got a long way to go
And it's starting to rain

Christmas is interesting
Like a knife in your heart
Christmas is interesting
How it tears you apart
Christmas is interesting
Like a stick in your eye
It's so freaking interesting
That it might make you cry

So you're an elf, but you'd rather be a dentist
Maybe you're a train with square wheels
Maybe you're a squirt gun that only shoots jam
Now you know how Jesus feels
He is riding a sleigh he calls Rosebud
His mansion is lonely and cold
He can't remember a pleasant December
When he wasn't tired and old

Christmas is interesting
Like a knife in your heart
Christmas is interesting
How it tears you apart
Christmas is interesting
Like a stick in your eye
It's so freaking interesting
That it might make you cry

So you're drunk and your name is Jimmy Stewart
You once had a wonderful life
Then you lost all your money, you cracked up your car
You yelled at your favorite wife
You go to bed and you wait for Jacob Marley
He comes to make you feel brave
But under his cloak he is nothing but smoke
And a finger that points at your grave

Christmas is interesting
Like a knife in your heart
Christmas is interesting
How it tears you apart
Christmas is interesting
Like a stick in your eye
It's so freaking interesting
That it might make you cry

    General Commentid say its about getting ripped off on christmas gifts that nobody spends thought or more than a dollar on, and how that makes you feel about people not caring about your happiness.

    My InterpretationIt's a song about the strange pop culture stories that have become part of Christmas. The song is about how "A Visit from St. Nicholas", "The Gift of the Magi", "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer", "Citizen Kane", "It's a Wonderful Life", and "A Christmas Carol" really, for the most part, have nothing to do with what Christmas is about, but have become so much a part of our culture that they intermingle with and, at times, eclipse the story of the first Christmas.

    My InterpretationThis guy is just ignorantly making fun of everything. It's not funny being dumb.

    Pretty typical mindless atheist garbage, make songs about video games and making robots in the future and then scoff at religions and stories about getting the kind of life this guy lacks. We can't all be single forever, Jonathan, and put off adulthood until senility.
