"We're Goin' to the Country" as written by and Sufjan Stevens....
If you seek a pillow for your head
Or a fitted sheet for Christmas bed
If you see your shadow on the snow
Is it from the baby Jesus glow?
He's going to the country

Find a tree and put it in your house
Put a mistletoe upon your mother's blouse
If you see a woman dressed in black
Give her up a song and then ask for it back
We're goin' to the country! We're goin' to the country!
You're mom's going to the country
We're goin' to the country! The country

    General Comment"Sufjan Stevens can fold a fitted-sheet (he once worked as a professional
    folder in a commercial Laundromat)."

    Found on Asthmatickitty.com, in the information for the Mews Too: An Asthmatic Kitty Compilation.
