A Sh*t Ton Of Comedians Bring You Christmas Magic In One Splendid Song


A lot of comedians showed up for this doozy of a holiday diddy

And they did not disappoint. This is a Christmas song we can get behind.

Because on the one hand Christmas songs are beautiful and wonderful, and they make us pause and think and appreciate the beauty of life and togetherness and all that crap, but on the other hand they are a bald-faced lie peddling a myth of a bygone era in the service of coporations’ exploitation of humankind to make rich companies richer. WHICH IS KIND OF AGAINST THE WHOLE SPIRIT OF THE HOLIDAYS ANYWAY.

And this song gets that. And while getting that, this song also gives a great opportunity to actually do some good this holiday.

Comedy Gives Back, an organization that provides a safety net for stand-up comedians —whether it’s emergency financial relief grants, access to mental health services or substance abuse treatment — brings you this joyous ode, “Christmas Magic.”

In the vein of “We Are The World,” Comedy Gives Back brought together 60 comedians to sing about their “true” meaning of Christmas.

You can check out the song everywhere it’s streaming:

LYRICS

‘CHRISTMAS MAGIC’ to benefit Comedy Gives Back

By Avery Pearson & Jordan Baum

12.8.19

SLEIGHBELLS RING THE SAME IN EVERY SINGLE COUNTRY;

IN EVERY MALL AROUND THE WORLD THE SANTA SMELLS LIKE LUNCH MEAT.

THIS TIME OF YEAR, THAT SPECIAL SPIRIT’S IN THE AIR,

MORE GIFTING AND RE-GIFTING SWEATERS YOU WILL NEVER WEAR

SO THANK YOU JESUS FOR THE MAGIC OF CHRISTMAS… HASHTAG BLESSED

YOU DID SO GOOD, IT’S NO LONGER JUST FOR CHRISTIANS

BUDDHISTS, MUSLIMS, QUAKERS, WICANS AND EVEN JEWS

TRAMPLE EACH OTHER AT WALMART FOR A VITAMIX CUZ OF YOU

WHETHER YOU’RE FROM NASHVILLE, TORONTO, LONDON OR KATHMANDU

EVERYBODY, EVERYWHERE, AROUND THE WORLD

HAS A DIFFERENT CHRISTMAS POINT OF VIEW

SO LET’S JOIN HANDS, AND STAND IN A CIRCLE OF HARMONY

LET’S SPREAD THE JOY BY SPENDING EVERY DOLLAR OF OUR MONEY

WHOEVER YOU ARE, WHEREVER YOU’RE FROM,

CHRISTMAS MAGIC IS FOR EVERYONE

EVERYONE, EVERYONE, CHRISTMAS IS FOR EVERYONE

IT’S JUST ANOTHER CORPORATE, GREEDY, CAPITALIST CHRISTMAS

SEE YA NEXT YEAR, I GOT HORSE TRANQUILIZERS ON MY WISH LIST

DO YOU BELIEVE SANTA CAN BE EVERYWHERE AT THE SAME TIME?

NO! BUT I BELIEVE IN THE SANTA THAT’S PUKING ON HOLLYWOOD AND VINE

COME ON GARY!

I LOVE WHEN CAROLERS SING ‘MERRY CHRISTMAS‘ TO YOU,

THEN QUIETLY SUPPRESS THEIR RAGE WHEN YOU REMIND THEM JESUS WAS A JEW… AND CIRCUMCISED

I’M SEVENTY TWO, AND THIS SEASON‘S A NIGHTMARE FOR ME,

ON THE TWELFTH DAY OF CHRISTMAS I FINALLY TOOK A PEE! OH!

PRESENTS UNDERNEATH THE TREE, LIKE AN XBOX,

OR A DOG IN A BOX THAT CAN’T BREATHE,

AND WHEN I’M AT MY INLAWS, AND I’M SUFFOCATING

I FEEL LIKE THAT DOG IS ME!

SO LET’S JOIN HANDS, AND STAND IN A CIRCLE AROUND A TREE

WE GOT ONE PLANET, SO LET’S CUT DOWN ALL THE TREES AND PUT ‘EM IN OUR HOUSES

WHOEVER YOU ARE, WHEREVER YOU’RE FROM,

CHRISTMAS MAGIC IS FOR EVERYONE
