War on Christmas? [Dec. 19th, 2005|11:04 pm]
John
I know that it's popular for some folks to talk about a war on Christmas. It made me think long and hard about why it was such a silly idea. That thinking finally found itself bouncing into a song.

To the tune (as I remember it) of "Drunken Sailor":

What would a righteous Christian do,
What would a righteous Christian do,
What would a righteous Christian do, if folks were fighting Christmas?
Work for the poor and disadvantaged,
Work for the poor and disadvantaged,
Work for the poor and disadvantages 'cause Christmas is still coming

What would a loving Christian do,
What would a loving Christian do,
What would a loving Christian do, if folks were fighting Christmas?
Love from the heart and keep on loving,
Love from the heart and keep on loving,
Love from the heart and keep on loving, 'cause Christmas is still coming

What would a brave, strong Christian do,
What would a brave, strong Christian do,
What would a brave, strong Christian do, if folks were fighting Christmas?
Rejoice at the coming birth of the savior,
Rejoice at the coming birth of the savior,
Rejoice at the coming birth of the savior, 'cause Christmas is still coming

What would a faithful Christian do,
What would a faithful Christian do,
What would a faithful Christian do, if folks were fighting Christmas?
Laugh with a hearty ho, ho, ho-o,
Laugh with a hearty ho, ho, ho-o,
Laugh with a hearty ho, ho, ho-o... 'cause no one can beat Christmas.

*chuckle* You realize, of course, that you've given me a whole new seasonal earworm. I've had the Drunken Sailor tune running through my brain all morning, complete with that final chorus's "hearty ho, ho, ho-o."

It's not enough that you've been known to commit rap - now you're (*gasp*)filking!
