I Don't Believe in Christmas

Here's a new tune for the holidays- Merry & Happy!




I Don’t Believe In Christmas


Every time this time of year

I weigh the way we spread good cheer

And wonder if it matters one bit

why we’re nicer, my advice sir-

enjoy what the day brings despite stories of kings

relish the things that you give and are given


Every time this time of year

I explain in ways plain and clear

to my relief I have no belief

in the reason for the season

but I’m one who defends if these means to these ends

result in smiling friends, who once were strangers

where’s the danger?


I don’t believe in Christmas

but I love it anyway


Every time this time of year

I voice a voice some don’t hold dear

and proudly shout despite my doubt

“seasons greetings” at family meetings

and I still can enjoy like when I was a boy

unwrapping every toy that I get, and each one I’m giving

this is living


I don’t believe in Christmas

but I love it anyway


The best of intentions never equal the gifts that you got

with a season so perfect I’ll forgive that its reason is not


Every time this time of year

I love the love both far and near

and wonder if it matters one bit

why we’re nicer.

This would only be better if Kermit were singing it (with the rest of the Muppets doing the bridge)!

This is great! Is it going to be on your CD Baby page or iTunes before Christmas? I'd love to add it permanently to my holiday playlist!
