"Maybe Gabriel was right
And there's nothing to fear.
All I want for Christmas
Is Christmas this year."
"But, I can't do it alone.
Jesus was homeless
Let's make him a home."

Let’s Make Christmas
by Marcos de Jesús, copyright 2014
M-A lot of us gotta work
N- And there’s’a lotta work to get done.
M-Schleping all over town
TUTTI- Sometimes, it’s not even fun.
N-But, it’s Christmas-
M- And it’s Kwanzaa-
N-And it’s Solstice-
M- And it’s Chanukah!
TUTTI! And if we can believe enough
These holidays might not be so tough.
N-You’re mad at me about something
M- I’m mad at you ‘bout…I don’t know what!
N-We don’t all get together enough to get stuck in this same old rut.
M- I’m probably wrong, alright? I’ll admit it.
TUTTI- I can confess if you can forgive it.
N-Maybe Gabriel was right,
TUTTI- and there’s nothing to fear…
All I want for Christmas is Christmas this year.
