Christmas with a Capital “C” by Go Fish

(I remember when people used to say things like “Merry Christmas” to each other. Everybody said “Merry Christmas, hey, Merry Christmas to you, Mr. Lowenstein.” You know why? Cuz it wasn’t about a religion, it was about something as a culture that we thought was so valuable, that we would all do it together, even if I disagreed with the religion behind it, because it was good for ALL of us instead of just ME. But what do people say now, “Happy Holidays. I’m gonna say happy holidays because I don’t wanna say Christmas cuz you don’t believe in Chritsmas, cuz I dont want to offend you.”
It’s called Christmas! (christmas)
(oh, ou, oh ou, oo oh oo oh oo, oh oo oh oo oh oo, Baby now)
Well I went to the coffee shop to get myself a Mocha (mocha),
The lady at the counter said “Happy holidays”;
I said, “Thanks lady, I am pretty happy,
But there’s only one holiday that makes me feel that way.”
And It’s called Christmas, what more can I say?
It’s about the birth of Christ
and you can’t take that away.
You can call it something else,
but that’s not what it’ll be.
It’s called Christmas with a capital “C.”
God’s got a law and we’ve pretty much destroyed it.
We’re gonna get judged, there’s no way to avoid it.
But Jesus came down to take the punishment for me.
He did it for you too, so maybe you can see . . .
Why It’s called Christmas, what more can I say?
It’s about the birth of Christ
and you can’t take that away.
You can call it something else,
but that’s not what it will be.
It’s called Christmas with a capital “C.”
It’s called Christmas!
(Oh, yes, we want to say Happy Holidays because we don’t want to leave anybody out, really, how come there’s a ton of holidays in February, nobody ever says happy holidays in February, do they, they say what it is, “Happy Valentines” Oh, do you believe in love?)
It’s called Christmas!
(But no body wants to say Christmas, everything else but Christmas, why? I know why, you do too, it’s because it’s got Christ in it and after two thousand years he’s still intimidating people, you see when a religious person says “I am the way” people don’t wanna hear it. They DON’T!)
It’s called Christmas!
( I say you gotta say Merry Christmas cuz it is! If you don’t believe in it fine, but I got a flash for you, Christianity happens to be the religious heritage of my country whether you like it or not.)
It’s called Christmas!
(So if you’re not Christian or you don’t like it, and you don’t want Christmas to be celebrated, well then God Bless You, but if you’re think you’re gonna stop me from sayin it because it offends you, I gotta flash for you, Put a helmet on, cuz it’s my country too.)
It’s called Christmas, what more can I say?
It’s about the birth of Christ
and you can’t take that away.
You can call it something else,
but that’s not what it will be.
