Song Description

Track includes electric guitar, acoustic guitar, bass, drums, lead vocals, harmony vocals, and jingle bells. Female lead vocal with a jazzy/hip hop funky feel. Tempo is actually 86 but feels upbeat and bopping. A song that will get stuck in your head, but you probably don't want to get caught singing it out loud!

Story Behind the Song

Inspired by a TAXI listing for angry holiday songs.

Lyrics

Let's Burn Down the Christmas Tree- Berube/Gardner 2006

Well I hate pine
And I hate holly
I?m not so merry
I?m not so jolly
Let?s burn down the Christmas tree now

Spend my money
On stupid things
And nobody ever
Appreciates them
Let?s burn down the Christmas tree now

B:
Siphon some gas
out the, neighbor?s car
And throw that tree
Out in the yard
There?s only one thing
That can make it alright
A big yule bonfire to light up the night

I?ve had about
all I can take
I think I?ve eaten
My last fruitcake
Let?s burn down the Christmas tree now

I?m no grinch
I?m no cynic
But folks who like Christmas
Should be put in a clinic
Let?s burn down the Christmas tree now

B:
It?s peace on Earth
Good will towards men
Again and again and
Again and again
Let?s all hold hands
And love our brother
And in January go back
To hating each other

You can have your presents
You can have your tree
But December 25th
Is not for me
Let?s burn down the Christmas tree now (yeah yeah)
Let?s burn down the Christmas tree now (jinga linga ling let?s sing)
burn down the Christmas tree
let?s, burn down the Christmas tree
Let?s, burn down the Christmas tree now
