Description
This is a song about the other side of family Christmas, with a nod to Randy Newman and Tom Waits. You can see where this is going. There are a couple of bad words on it so if you don't like that sort of thing you've been warned.

This is a song from my album "The Return of the Well-Known Trout" which is available on iTunes, and cannot be bought in store! To find it on iTunes type in the title of the album, or my name, Tim Kniest. It makes a fabulous cyber stocking stuffer.

The photo is of our miniature schnauzer Karma, who unfortunately is no longer alive, but well remembered and still loved.

I hope you enjoy it.

Merry Ho-Ho and Happy Happy.

Lyrics
It's Christmas Time, the Happy Time

Christmas time, happy time,
When families get together for the final time of the year.
So much cheer.
They open presents and stuff themselves,
Telling each other to go to hell.
It's Christmas time, that happy time of the year.

She cheated on him, he stole from her purse.
A fable suitable for a Bible verse.
Why oh, why? No one really cares.
Rooted somewhere in the past,
"Go fuck yourself " . . . "you can kiss my ass."
It's Christmas time, that happy time of the year

"Peace on earth," the Angels sang to shepherds in a field
Man that's rich.
So how can you believe what the Angels' sang
When you're surrounded by these sons of a bitch?

Christmas time, happy time
People liked to drink that Christmas wine.
To forget, same regrets.
All the pain, the fights, the shame
Destroying one another in his precious name

Its Christmas time, that happy time of the year.
It's Christmas time, that happy time of the year.

Nothing wrong
with a 'Bluesy' Christmas as opposed to a 'white' one and this is very enjoyable with that great 'Satchmo' style vocal and wonderful backing.... good one. All the Best, M

Well,
you certainly are making a statement. Unfortunately, I think you are speaking the truth in just too many instances. Sad. Casting this in a happy/bluesy style provides the juxtaposition just the right twist. Interesting (and provocative) take on the season. Definitely not a pick-me-up-er.

Thanks woofie. The part that reminds me most of Randy is the middle 8, or bridge. I appreciate your comments, as always.

Aah, traditional family values...
Oh, wow, I forgot to keep current with you, which has been my loss. This song brings me much cheer. I'm so glad to be back for this tune, which tugs at... I mean cuts the heartstrings. I officially "heart" you, Mr. MonkaTim.
