"It's Christmas! Let's Be Glad!" as written by and Sufjan Stevens....
Since it's Christmas! Let's be glad!
Even if your life's been bad
There are presents to be had

Take a walk out in the snow
And hear Santa's, ho ho ho
He's got a million miles to go

La la la la la la
La la la la la la
La la la la la la

Sing a carol to your mom
'Cause she knows what's going on
And she knows if you've been bad or good

And if you get what you deserve
To be graded on the curve
Oh, you got a lot of nerve

La la la la la la
La la la la la la
La la la la la la

Since the year is almost out
Lift your hands and give a shout
There's a lot to shout about today

Since it's Christmas! Let's be glad!
Even if the year's been bad
There are presents to be had
A promotion for your dad
Don't be angry, don't be mad

    General CommentThe "Lalalalalalala" bares some what of a resemblance to a recording by the Alabama Sacred Harp Singers on a compilation I've got. The songs a version of Whilst Shepards Watched their Flocks By Night called Sherburne. Wonder is Stevens is referencing that song here?

    General CommentAt last we find a Sufjan song without a ridiculously complicated underlying metaphor. I like it.
