I can't believe what Christmas
Has come to today
All these atheists and judges
Tryin' to take it away
No carols in our public schools
No trees in city hall
And they wish you Season's Greetings
At the shopping mall
Ain't you sick of it all?

Well, there's a War on Christmas
It's under attack
But this year America is taking it back
Separate church and state
That's what some lawyer said
I say it's time we separated him from his head
You can call me un-Christian
But that's not true
'Cause have I got a present for you

It's the thought that counts!

Christmas is as American as apple pie
It's the late December version of the
Fourth of July
And they may go by a different name
But Uncle Sam and Santa Claus
Are one and the same

So boys, take aim!

Well, there's a War on Christmas
It's under attack
But this year America is taking it back
Separate church and state
That's what some liberal said
I say it's time we liberated him from his head
You can call me un-Christian
But that's not true
Buddy, I got a present for you

I hope it's the right size!

Oh say can you see this Christmas
Baby Jesus, 'tis of thee
I'm placing 50 shining stars atop
The Statue of LiberTree
Then I'll go and jingle the Liberty Bell
Host Old Glory with an elf
If you say I can't deck my halls
Then I'll deck you myself!

Well, there's a War on Christmas
It's under attack
But this year old St. Nicholas is taking it back
He's firing guns from his reindeer
Dropping bombs from his sled
This year if you're are not then you're as good as dead
He wears red and white
But you can throw in blue
And has he got a present for you

St. Toby's got one too!
Yeah, we got a present for you
As in the A-C-L-U

Easy Rudolph!
Down, boy!

    General CommentThis song was written by one of the writers of the Daily Show for Toby Keith, and it's both a parody of Toby Keith's crazy-right-winger persona (he's actually not really one) and the crazy-religious-right and their obsession with this "war on Christmas." It nicely points out flaws in their reasoning. If you see the video, you can see TK isn't nearly as energetic about this song as he is the ones he wrote.

    General CommentA great song by Keith showing how ridiculous America has got with being politically correct.

    It is a sad day indeed when people are threatened with lawsuits and store owners instruct employees to say "Happy Holidays" instead of Merry Christmas for fear of offending some durka durka Muslim.

    Toby Keith is a great performer and everyone should get the chance to hear him sing Courtesy Of The Red White and Blue live, it is a patriotic experience like no other!

    Parody or not it is an awesome song and everyone should view the video when they get a chance. Keith also made it available for download on iTunes so go check it out!

    Ooh Rah!
