Full Lyrics: Andy Eppler's Traditional Christmas

Andy Eppler’s Traditional Christmas (Full Lyrics):

 

Traditional Christmas:

Well there once was a cave man long long time ago

He would pray to the sun, “pleased drive away the snow”

And the sun would listen, at least for all the caveman would know

 

Well the days would get longer around the same time every year

And the caveman would notice and it’d drive away his fear

Yeah he thought that he could pray right into the sun’s ear

 

Yeah, he threw a big party so the sun would always return

You can’t blame the caveman for things he couldn’t learn

He couldn’t know for sure that the sun was still gonna burn

 

This season is a good time to party

I think that’s what our ancestors would say

This season is a good time to party

And that’s good enough to keep us partying today

 

Well his children’s children, they all prayed to the sun

Until their holiday was replaced by a Roman one

But they still got to party and have all of their fun

 

Yeah, the head of the church was the emperor back then

And he didn’t much like all the partying and sin

Yeah, he wanted to replace it with a manger and an inn

 

They took the cave holiday and claimed it for their own

And they made it law with their righteous Roman throne

Cause there’s more than one way to live under a stone

 

 

 

Working for Christmas:

 

I’ll be working at my bullshit job for Christmas

That’s the state my economy is in

I’ll be working at my bullshit job for Christmas

Bout the time they’re waking up I’m clocking in

 

I’ll be working at my bullshit job for Christmas

There’ll be no presents under my tree

I’ll be working at my bullshit job for Christmas

I guess that’s how much time and a half really means to me

 

I’ll be working at my bullshit job for Christmas

There’ll be no drinking hot cocoa

I’ll be working at my bullshit job for Christmas

I’ll grab a thirty-minute lunch and I’ll have to go

 

I’ll be working at my bullshit job for Christmas

That’s the state my economy is in

I’ll be working at my bullshit job for Christmas

Bout the time they’re waking up I’m clocking in

 

 

Christmas is a Good Excuse:

 

Whatever your reason for the season

Whatever it is you choose

Yeah, whatever you say about this beautiful day

Christmas is a good excuse

 

Christmas is a good time to be kind to your friends

To get together and make amends

To take each other by the hand

and wish well for your fellow man

 

Christmas is a good time to call up your folks

To have a drink and tell your jokes

It’s a good excuse to be

Loving to everyone you see

 

Christmas is a time to feel warm inside

To remember those who have died

And celebrate that we still live

That’s the reason we want to give

 

Christmas is a time to take a sip

Of cheer and leave a tip

Cause we can disagree and still

wish everyone peace and good will
