The All Purpose Carol

from The Runaway Christmas Tree

We're Christian and we're Jewish and of African descent
we've always found the holidays
to be a strange event

So on the first day of Chanukah
my true love sang to me
a new all purpose carol
right for trimming a hybrid tree

Merry Christmas! Happy Chanukah!
Kwanzaa time is here!
it's that fa-la-la deedle-dum
jumbo jumbo time of year
Gloria! Baruch ha ta
in Excelis Deo
Da-a-ay-o!
Daylight come
and the drummer boy drum
and the angels fly away-0!

Daylight come
and the drummer boy drum
and the angels fly away
Oy-man!
