"Put the Lights on the Tree" as written by and Sufjan Stevens....
Put the lights on the tree
(Put them on the tree, put them on the tree)
Put the ribbon on the wreath
(Put it on the wreath, put it on the wreath)

And call your grandma on the phone
(Call her on the phone, call her on the phone)
If she's living all alone
(If she's all alone, if she's all alone)

Tell her Jesus Christ is here
(Tell her He is here, tell her He is here, tell her He is here)
Tell her she has none to fear
(There is none to fear, there is none to fear, there is none to fear)

If she's crying on the phone
(Crying on the phone, crying on the phone, crying on the phone)
Tell her you are coming home
(You are coming home, you are coming home)

La la la la la la la
La la la la la la la
La la la la la la la
...

    General CommentThe cartoon movie that goes with the song on the Christmas album is great. It really is such a cheery song. I love the woodwins on it.

    General CommentInstead of reindeer, they use four swans. Referring of course to Seven Swans.
