HAPPY KWANZAA-CHANUKAH-AL HIJRA-CHRISTMAS

Well, I still can remember
back when I was just a kid,
we'd go caroling, singing old Christmas songs
from the pen of Irving Berlin.
Well, I still can remember,
no one got the least upset
if I'd shout out "Merry Christmas" with no regrets.
Have a HAPPY KWANZAA-
"Happy Holidays" is too generic,
'though maybe one size might fit all.
Have a HAPPY KWANZAA-
Seems like those days are threatened
by the long arm of the law
in the name of political correction
& the lawsuits the lawyers saw.
Seems like those days are threatened.
In some towns now if you hail
with a simple "Merry Christmas", your ass is in jail.
What do you mean I'm not allowed to say,
What do you mean you're too afraid
I might offend?
Well, I'm just too damned sorry
if you're feeling all left out,
but I couldn't quite squeeze ev'rybody in,
if that's what it's all about.
Well, I'm just too damned sorry.
Go and drink yourself a beer.
& why don't you write your own damned song next year.
If I offer you a "Merry Christmas",
instead of bringing out the tanks,
if you don't like what you're hearing,
you can always say, "No thanks".
[spoken] Well, let's see ...
if you're a Buddhist, should I say, "Have a Big Bodhi Day!"?
If you're a Wiccan, should I say, "Have a Lusty Litha!"?
If you're Vietnamese, should I say, "Happy Tet"?
If you're Chinese, do I not say "Happy New Year" until it's your turn?
Is Kwanzaa even an authentic cultural holiday?
If you're an atheist, should I just give you the finger?
& how the hell is 'Chanukah/Hanukkah' supposed to be spelled anyway?
& wasn't Chanukah/Hanukkah a rather minor holiday?
